Hello! Today I would like to share my homemade scrapbooking kit from my stash of supplies. I drew inspiration from the Counterfeit Kit Challenge (CKC) blog. This month, they are counterfeiting Scrappy Canary June kit – a kit that focused on the travel theme.
How I usually start to build my kit is I usually look at the colors and pattern of the papers in the kit CKC chose to counterfeit. But this time, I started with this map paper I had in my stash which is perfect for the travel theme. You may have seen me used in my other layouts because I had it in my July kit. I had two of the same paper as I buy paper pads.They usually have two of the same papers in a pad.
So I chose the papers that will coordinate with the map patterned paper, mostly based on the colors, ie blues, greens, greys, yellows. So that’s 10 sheets of patterned papers down.
Then the pretty chevron paper caught my eye from the Scrappy Canary kit. I know I don’t have such large chevrons paper, but I have a vintage smaller chevron paper in my stash. This sheet of paper had teal, red, green, yellow in it.
So I went and look for papers that will coordinate with this sheet of paper. I chose 18 sheets altogether.
As for embellishments, I decided to go DIY again. I have a lot of Project Life cards to last me three lifetime probably. So I need to use some up in my layouts. I decided to make my embellishments out of those. I took a few 3×4 cards from the Project Life Cinnamon core kit; mainly the filler cards. These cards are mostly neutral tones that can go well with the papers above.
I grabbed a few punches and dies that can cut out some of the words on the cards.
Here are some of the diecuts and punched outs. Most likely I will make different ones to add on from the papers as I make the layouts.
Therefore, this month’s kit, I made 2 kits with very different theme. One is a travel theme based and another more vintage-y kit. Looking forward to use it! I didnt add any alphas to the kit as I usually create titles halfway through my layouts. It would be easier to pull them out when I need them.
Thanks for stopping by. Leave me a comment if you have any questions, and I will try answer it! I hope you will try create your own version of scrapbooking kit. Happy crafting!
