    Versatility of TDC kits!

    Have you seen the July collab "The Great Outdoors"?


    Pretty themed, uh? At first I thought I'd never be able to use it, despite thinking it was the cutest kit ever, because I'm the least outdoorsy person you can think of. Well, guess which kit I used to create this LO:


    That's right, this very outdoorsy/camping/forest, firecamp and dirt kit!

    Now, your turn, do you have LOs that use a TDC themed kit in a non-themed LO? Like a girl kit on a boy LO, a birthday kit to scrap an everyday story, a circus-themed kit for a page about your beach vacation, ... Share them and inspired us with the versatility of TDC kits!!

    A great way to change the look of a kit is to focus on one color, as I did here with the blues. And you can use blending modes to create new papers. For example, I used a dark blue starry paper for the background but blended it with a plain white cardstock to make it lighter. You can still see a hint of the stars and the blue but it's not as strong as the original paper.

    Seriously, how do paper scrappers do it???

    I do this ALL THE TIME with papers! I love putting 2 (or 3 or 4) papers together to make a whole new paper. Great ideas here!

    I used Dawn by Design's The Christian Child kit for a starting school layout. The yellow in the kit made me think of the school colours - although it's a much nicer, much less brash yellow than the school picked!

    I love it Jude! Christian Child is definitely a very versatile kit! I've had enough religious events to scrap recently so I only used it for those, but I can definitely imagine myself using it for other pages. The fact that a kit has some good basic papers and elements, especially a nice alpha and some flowers or buttons, maybe a couple tags, makes it even more versatile!
