Workshops YOUR Way -- Regatta, Part 2: The Leftovers

In yesterday's post, I shared lots of information about the new Workshop Your Way kits.  (If you missed it, please click here to go back and check it out.)  Today, I wanted to share another reason CTMH has released these fabulous new kits.  In its ongoing efforts to help us document our memories, CTMH wants to encourage us all to consume our products and not collect them.  The project guides that coordinate with the new WYW kits do just that!  These guides are designed to use almost all the products included in the kits with very little scraps or leftovers.

To help you remember from yesterday, here is a picture of everything included in the Regatta WYW kit...

And here is a recap of all the projects you can make with the cutting guide...

And lastly, here are the leftovers you will have after making the suggested projects -- 3 double-page traditional layouts, 1 double-page Picture My Life layout and 4 cards (2 each of 4 designs)...
Leftovers - picture #1

Leftovers - picture #2

To recap, there are... 
*5+ zip strips
*Few B&T / cardstock scraps
*1 4x6 PML card
*4 - 3x4 PML cards
*11 stickers plus 1 word/phrase sticker
*several Maritime puffies
*several chipboard shapes
*partial spool white/gold ribbon

Because I am so in love with this collection, I decided to go into paper saver mode when putting together the WYW projects -- meaning I used solid cardstock from my stash instead of the patterned B&T paper included in the WYW kit and I cut apart and saved any extra paper that would be hidden under other layers.

Extra B&T I was able to save using "paper saver" mode.

And you know me, I couldn't let those scraps just hang around... so I created several more projects to finish up all the paper and the majority of the embellishments.  The remaining embellishments I was comfortable putting in my stash for future use.  I will be sharing those projects this week so stay tuned!
