I tend to get into a rut when it comes to scrapbooking. I use the things I love only or I buy a whole lot of things at once and don't get to use them. I played along with creating counterfeit kits for a while and that was awesome but I also wanted someone to do some of the work for me. I decided to try Crazy Monday Kits for a three-month trial to see if that works for me. I will add in bits and pieces of my stash to try and stretch the kit and create a balance of new things and things my authentic style. I want to scrapbook and make cards etc a LOT more often. My goal is to use up the kit each month or at least use up a kits-worth of stuff. We'll see how I go!

It is gorgeous. I love the femininity of the kit, although I would have only bought a few of the pieces if left to my own devices.
I am not sure how I will go with the embellishments. I am not really a flower girl. There are many people that create gorgeous, detailed layouts with lots of flowers on them, I call them the 'Prima Girls', but I am not one of them. The flowers are too deep dimensionally for me. I love texture on my layouts, but I like them to easily fit into my albums without getting squashed too! Thankfully I have no issue shoving them on cards and sending them off ;) I may even do an off-the-page project. Time will tell.
The key is to set up a regular scrapbook time. I am meant to be having a Tuesday night date with a couple of ladies so I shall endeavour to create at least one layout a week and ideally several cards (but that might be pushing it a touch LOL).
