Don't you love the feeling you get from totally using up one of your kits? It's so much better than hoarding those pretty papers! So what about when you only have a little left? I've got some tips today to help get more out of your kits. I created this layout with very little supplies from the Valley High kits.
Here's what I did. I sewed leftover strips of patterned paper onto the cardstock to ground my photo. Stamps are a great way to make your own embellishments. I used the stamps from the Valley High card kit and card add on. I stamped the flowers and the bird and cut them out so I could layer them and add dimension to my page. I also cut out a few embellishments - the hello, clouds and arrow from an exclusive paper included in the Valley High scrapbook kit.

So when you only have a tiny bit left of one of your favorite kits (or even a favorite collection that you can't let go of!), I challenge you to make just one more project!
