Kill My Studio Calico Kit: June – Galileo

I am starting this series on my blog to keep myself accountable. I love buying new scrapbooking products, but I don’t want them to pile up, I want to use them and finish them up!
At the end of May I subscribed to the scrapbooking kit at Studio Calico (with a $5 promotion). So my first kit to kill was Galileo (June 2015). My goal is to use up a kit before the next one arrives.

Notes: I loved pretty much everything in this kit. The stamp set is very versatile (I am using it a lot in my Project Life album), I have a weakness for puffy stickers and gold foil, and I love the cork map.

Status: killed*
I made 9 layouts with this kit (7 12″x12″, 2 9″x12″), for a total of $5, or $0.55/page. I supplemented it with some paper and stamps and a couple embellishments from my stash.

Here’s the bits and pieces I have left.
Leftovers: cork world map (I am hoarding it.. :)), part of the star foiled specialty paper and of the pink dots paper (my favorite this month!), some stickers and an acrylic word.
So the first month was definitely a success!
*what I mean with “killed” is that I don’t have any whole pieces of patterned paper left or enough embellishments to make a page.

Kill my Studio Calico kit is a monthly series I started on my blog to hold myself accountable and use up my kits. My goal is to use up a kit before the next one arrives.
