What happened when I ran out of enough stuff in my August kit

Scrapbook page by Shimelle with Best of Both Worlds kit - August 2020
This post includes affiliate links to, where I bought my supplies for this page.

When we created the Field Trip die-cut specialty paper, my intention was that it could be used for several pages: all or some of the inner pieces could be added to page plus you could then back the frame with other papers to make another layout. In the end, I made three pages with the inner punch outs, and intended to fill the background frame with scraps from the other papers in the kit.

Problem: I used the other papers up and was left without scraps big enough to fill the spaces. Whoops.

So I’ve gone outside the kit this time, but just to my scrap basket. (Which is in a bag at the moment. It will go back to a basket soon, though. The bag is breaking my brain.) And pulled out scraps in eight colours: brick red and gold, emerald green and silver, royal blue and grey, and butter yellow and black. I can’t imagine why. Spoilers: I didn’t make the blanket. (My lovely friend Vic made it for me for my birthday. Eeeep.)

After this, I’m clearly down to the dregs of my kit, but I have a plan for one more page to use up what’s left. If I manage that one too, it means I will have made FIFTEEN 12×12 pages from this kit. My original hope was six or seven, so this is a level of madness unexpected by even me. Well, we all know I love a little MOAR. Apparently, that means more pages this time around!

This post includes links to all the supplies in the August kit, and the hashtag #shimelleBOBW is filled with pages made with those supplies!
