The kits in the Occasions Catalog are fabulous! A few days ago I shared what I did with the Perpetual Birthday Calendar kit. The Hello Life Project Kit is another kit that I purchased, built, and then "expanded on." The extra supplies in these kits allow you to make more than just what's in the kit.
So with a pack of Best Year Ever Designer Paper from the Sale-a-Bration catalog that I got free from purchasing the kit and coordinating stamp set and punches I had on hand, I was able to change up the colors and make a second set of embellishments! (Click here to see what else you can get for free with a $50 order.)
Because you only get enough supplies to make one "shaker", you may want to keep the yellow heart confetti out like I did so it will stay more neutral and coordinate with other colors palettes.
I then gathered up some blank note cards and used the extra unused pieces (yes! I had even MORE extras) to create some fun greeting cards...
(This last card idea I got from fellow demonstrator, Deb Valder. Thanks, Deb!)
Directions come with each kit, but the videos on Stampin' Up!'s Youtube channel are even more helpful. Here's a video from Stampin' Up! showing how to put this Hello Life Project Kit together.
You may have noticed that I didn't put my kit together exactly the way the directions in this video show (no pom poms on mine). But that's okay! You don't HAVE to make a project exactly that way its directions show, because YOU are the creator. So I've listed the supplies I used to make my projects and cards shown above at the bottom of this post.
