I think the stamps and any leftover embellishments easily mix and match across Workshop Kits.

Recently the Close To My Heart Make It From Your Heart blog had a post "Love This Life: Documenting the Everyday with a Mini Album".

When I saw that post, I was thinking that we often concentrate on the big moments and special occasions, but in future years grandchildren and great-grandchildren will wonder what a typical day or week is like. My great-grandmother kept a diary where she also wrote down routine things like how many eggs the hens produced and what prices they got for them. It is fun learning about how they lived before my grandfather was born, while they were raising him and what their lives were like as they had grandchildren.

Be sure to document some of the routine so future generations will know how we live life now, before fully autonomous cars for example. Have a great day!
