Hello everyone! It’s time for August Counterfeit Kit Challenge (CKC) Members Blog Hop. You must have arrived from Leslie’s blog!
Every month they have challenges to inspire you to create your projects. The challenges this month are:
- Challenge #1: Challenge #1 – Happy Sandcastle Day
- Challenge #2: Challenge #2 – Outside The Stash
- Challenge #3: Challenge #3 – Sounds Foreign To Me
For today’s post, I want to share the layouts and cards I created with my August kit. I created a coordinating page about my puppy which I previously created (you can check it out here) with my forgery paper. I found another photo of him taken on the same day which is clearer actually.
I used versamark ink with the same plus sign stencil I used on my previous layout. I just wanted the subtle marks on the background of the cardstock. I added some alphabet stickers and some diecuts I cut out with my Cameo. I also used some numbers thickers to document the date of the photos were taken.
I just love using my border punches. Love the look and I figured I must use it more on my layouts to get my investment worth 😉
I made some cards too with my kit.
The patterned paper was one the top corner of a 12×12 which I found it hard to use on a layout, so I just trim it down and put it on a card front and stamped a sentiment on it.
The next card, I used the leftover forgery paper I made and made a card with it. I layered some papers and added my stamped sentiment.
Then I also used some bits of paper and a cut apart card from my never ending scrap pile and leftover bits of one patterned paper from the kit as mats to create a simple layout inspired by Challenge #3 – Sounds Foreign to Me.
I scrapbook a photo of a B&B place I stayed in when I was visiting Montreal. I am not even sure how to pronounce it. It was such a lovely place. I included a brochure of the place too since it had all the information and pictures in it. I used my sewing machine to add some stitching for some interest.
It has been a small kit this month, so I took some bits and pieces from my scrap pile for the projects. And it’s great because the aim is to use up the stash build up right 🙂
As you all probably already know, I am the guest designer for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge for August. It’s been really exciting and fun. I can’t thank them enough for the wonderful welcome and support that they have given me. Thanks so much CKC!
