Sharing My Little 'Secret' For Stretching My Kits

So, you get a kit and you want to make the absolute MOST of love the patterened paper so much and you just can't bare to cover up the other side (b/c you like it, too!!)....what's a girl to do??  And the cardstock, it matches so perfectly...that background color would make perfect photo mats on another layout....hmmm.....

When I have extra paper, I just use it...but when I'm working with a kit and don't always have the extra paper right there with me, this is my answer!!  I'm known for cutting the backs out of layouts to stretch the kit a little I the only one??!!  :)
