Today, though, I want to share the projects I made with one of the kits. First, I made my kit by pulling patterned paper and cardstock according to the Sandpaper Road Formula™.

CLICK HERE to view the formula. It’s super easy! You literally just pull sheets of paper you already have in your stash. It’s how you choose the pattern ARRANGEMENT that makes the formula unique.

After I made my kit, I made 4 scrapbook pages (12″ x 12″) and 6 top-folding, A2-sized cards, all in one sitting (I chose to add the photos to my pages later). The stamps I used are from Issue 51 of Creative Stamping Magazine. I used Memento Tuxedo Black stamping ink and Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers for coloring the stamped images.

LAYOUT 2 (double-page spread):


CARDS (I made 6 cards total, but I since I made 2 identical cards with the hedgehog stamp, I only will show one image of that design):

SPECIAL NOTES: I added a stamped image of a top hat to the hedgehog using The “Crazy Things” (CMS237#) stamp set from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous. After I made the 6 cards and 4 scrapbook pages, I still had a few decent-sized pieces left from my kit, so I pulled a piece of cardstock I had gel-printed a few weeks earlier to use as a base and I made an additional 12″ x 12″ page.

I still had some big pieces from the kit, so I pulled ANOTHER piece of previously-gel-printed cardstock and made ANOTHER 12″ x 12″ page. On this page, I added Prima Marketing Art Alchemy-Sparks-Butterfly Spells Acrylic Paint and also flowers from my stash. This scrapbook page will hold four 4″ x 4″ photos.

PRODUCTS USED are pictured below (NOTE: the patterned paper and 12″ x 12″ cardstock were from my personal craft stash. The products below are additional items I used):
