Zoe "Kill-a-Kit" process -- Day #1: One Final Layout

As many of you know, I tend to pick a paper packet and work it until it's gone.  Typically, I will make the Workshop on the Go and/or Fundamentals layouts and as many more scrapbook layouts as I can until my scraps get too small or too few to make more layouts.  Once I finish the scrapbook layouts, I switch gears and make cards until I officially "kill" the paper packet.  I also try to use up as many of the coordinating embellishments as I can.  When I have completely exhausted all paper from the packet, I will... {GASP!}... throw away the final scraps -- usually there are very few leftovers.  At that time, I take any remaining embellishments (such as stickers, ephemera, etc.), cut them into individual pieces, and put them in a small basket of mixed embellishments if I can see myself using them in the future or into another small container to use for pocket letters or other giveaways.

This week on my blog, I will be featuring my "kill-a-kit" projects for the Zoe collection.  I have loved playing with Zoe, but feel the time has come to give her a rest and enjoy some of the other fabulous collections currently offered by Close to My Heart.  I hope you'll come back each day to see what I've come up with.

For today's layout, I was inspired by the layout on page 34 of Holiday Expressions 2015.  I didn't have very many large pieces left from the Zoe paper packet so I incorporated the Paper Fundamentals and plain cardstock in the coordinating colors.  I love the subtle pattern the UV-coated side of the fundamentals cardstock adds to the layout.  What do you think?
