Hello there! Today I´d like to share with you a layout that I created based on a scrapbook kit (see picture). My inspiration started from the rub-ons that were on the kit. I love to use rub-ons, always have and always will. I really cannot say what it is with rub-ons, but I just find they are the perfect embellishment as you can use them as little details or even a whole sheet at once.

Since these rub-ons happened to have numbers on them, they perfectly matched my photo which is one of my DH on his 39th birthday.

Now I have a confession to make, I am a kit subscriber since a couple of years, but I hardly ever use my kits as they are. I usually take one piece from one kit and combine that with another piece from another kit. I often even organize the goodies from the kits into my stash just to use them later in random order. But this time I wanted to use the kit as it is. Someone has gone to a lot of trouble designing and planning these kits, so I thought I´d give it  a try and use this particular kit for this layout. Like I said, it all originally started from the rub-ons :).

After figuring out where to place the photo, I then added the rub-ons and went along from there. I must admit, it was really easy to just grab the goodies that were in the kit and combine them onto this page, because they worked perfect together. The only thing I added to the kit goodies were the big black title numbers. Everything else is from the kit. Oh, sorry, the misting is from my stash too. I added that as an additional detail after finishing the rest :).

Here are some detail photos:

Are you a kit subscriber? How do you use them or do you just hoard them? I hope this post has inspired you to take a good look at your kit stash and dig into it, use it!! That is what it is there for, isn´t it - to get scrapped :). Don´t hoard your stuff, use it - a good motto for today :). Have fun!!
