From a Kit Series - Take 2

I started a new series on my blog last month. The idea was born from the fact that I have a lot of unused card/stamping kits just waiting to have some attention. Sheesh! Seems as though I buy them and they just sit... so it's time to take action.

My first post in this series can be seen - HERE. But let me warn you... it is NOT a pretty card. In fact, it's horrible and most of the items from that kit ended up going in my donate box and are now no longer in my stash.

This month I pulled out the Spellbinders August Kit of the Month. I purchased it on clearance long after it was current. These kits come with papers, dies, embellishments and such - but no stamps.

I considered using one of my own stamps with it when creating a card, but decided against it, since I kind of want to keep this series all about the kits.

I don't hate my card, so that's better than last month. One thing I do like about using these kits is they tend to move me out of my comfort zone and force me to do something other than my normal style.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

In addition to the Spellbinders August Kit of the Month, I used CS for the card base (SU Old Olive) and some dies (MFT Stitched Rectangle and MFT Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle)

Definitely not your usual, Jeanette, but still beautiful. Love that gold tag.
Stay safe

Cute design with the layered tags and doily!
