#Challenge52Kits Glee Club - September 2011

This was my 2nd kit that I subscribed too, I remember it well - Glee Club!

ABOUT GLEE CLUB | I was excited that this kit still included some bits from Amy Tangerine's original line, some more BasicGrey Out of Print, as well as some of American Crafts' Nightfall collections. So excited I bought a ton extras from all 3 of those collections also from

Glee Club scrapbook kit leftover + more pp and SC paper

REALITY | When I was gathering this kit back together from the four corners of the earth, I mean, my scrapbook room, I only noticed 1 piece of paper that was used a little, and then I found the project I used it for - the background paper for this card! Ugh, I think, other than some of the alphas, and the stamps... that's really it, wow. The sad part is, I had bought ALL 4 add-on kits too, ok there's no time like the present right!

Pep Squad leftover

Debate Team leftover

Home Ec leftover

Thespian leftover

REALITY CON'T | I really wanted to delve more into this kit, but this week I had some other projects going on, so didn't get to use as much up of this kit as I would have liked! I definitely want to make some cards with it, as the paper is just gorgeous, but also I would really like to use up those special hand stitched tags from the Home Ec add-on! That will definitely go into my personal challenge bucketlist haha!

A LAYOUT | So here is the layout I made with this kit! I knew I wanted to go with the travel theme of some of the supplies in the kit, and also use that circular paper. Which reminded me of circles, which reminded me of this sketch template from Simple Scrapper that I had used once before. I decided not to worry that I have already used it and just used it again, and this time it's a whole different look with the Glee Club kit! This layout was just one of those that came together quickly and easily once I decided on a sketch template and cut out the circles with my Silhouette! I'm glad I finally used a paper clip and two brads, plus a border strip - each taken from a completely untouched package of supplies!!

NEXT UP | Oooh, Field Guide - one of my most favorite October kits!! I had previously tried to create a small mini album with a bunch of these papers, but never finished and I didn't sew it very well so the book actually started coming apart, so I think I trashed it :( BUT I know I have lots of goodies leftover and hope I can find some great pictures to go with this kit!
