Scraptastic - May Kit

I am sharing a layout I made with the Scraptastic May Kit - Destination Unknown. I challenged myself to make a page with just the kit. Let me tell you - I really struggled with this! I did use some punches and it probably would have helped if I would have used my Silhouette cameo...especially for the title - but I didn't. I ended up cheating a little and using some extra thread for the "baby" in my title. This is mainly because I messed it up the first time and had to cover it with the tag...lesson learned - do not try stitching for the first time on an almost complete layout :) I also had to add the paper at the bottom with the journaling as I smeared the original journaling...

Anyways, here is my page with some close ups:

Basically, I have learned that for me that limiting myself to just the kit can actually take me longer than adding in my stash as I need it. I know a lot of people do better working with limited supplies..but it actually was more time consuming for me and a little more frustrating!  I haven't picked the kit back up yet - probably b/c this one was such a struggle, but I hope to use it more soon AND use my stash with it :)

Thanks for stopping by!
