October Counterfeit Kit

This month over at the Counterfeit kit challenge blog  we are being inspired by this dreamy fall inspiration piece.

 Case File 365 link here

I really love the soft colors, the slightly retro feel of the water color image. Makes me want to print and scrap all those fall photos!  The list of "evidence"  was so very helpful in choosing my accessories.   I intend to use this kit for general fall layout. Pumpkin patch, pumpkins, fall outings and maybe even some Thanksgiving.  I tried to go with a slightly more modern but retro feel rather than aged or shabby in most cases. I also tried to keep a soft overall feeling.  

I am calling this kit "Autumn Rambles"

This is the cardstock and papers I chose.  I went for mostly oranges, tans, creams and yellows, with blue and green and grey as accent colors. I have some really old paper here with some newish papers as well.

As always I may have gone overboard on the embellishment  and I always reserve the right to add more :D  I love having a lot to choose from. some very traditional fall items here as well as things that just match the feel to me.  I have some golds and bronzes as well.

and my Many alphabets.  I never now what I want to use and many of my alphas have been used so I choose many in hopes that I will have enough of something for a title. lol

I feel so inspired by these supplies. Need to go choose some photos and print them so I can play when inspiration hits!


June counterfeit kit - Kill a kit

I posted the kit I made in this post.  Then my first 4 pages here.

 Here are the rest of the layouts I created with this kit.  12 total layouts, I only had 2 full sheets of paper left and 2 half sheets.  I used up a few packages of embellishments but have plenty left to put away.  I played with my kit for 2 months and it was super fun.   I will play along again in Sept. with the counterfeit kit challenge.


A little bit Patriotic

We R Memory Keepers had a tutorial for an adorable banner on their blog.  This is my patriotic Twist on it.  I have the banner punch board so I used it for the banner pieces.  I used this tutorial to make the pinwheels.  The circles I cut with my good old coluzzle templates and knife.


June counterfeit kit layouts

I have made 4 layouts using my June kit. Hoping to do a few more.


June 2015 Counterfeit Kit Challenge

  I have not done a counterfeit kit challenge for a long time. But with summer here I want to scrap and use up some of my supplies.  This months challenge was to pick one of Basic Grey's new lines and create a kit based on it.  I chose the Barista Line.  Love the freshness of it.  Here is what it looks like.

Here is the kit I created from my stash.  So many lovely things.  I may have gone overboard on the alphas :D

I am also doing a summer scrapbook challenge on a Facebook group I am on so I hope to use this kit for many of those challenges.


Christmas Cards Day 2

Today's card is inspired by this pin - Snow globe card.

I used a cute file by Samantha Walker Designs and My Silhouette Cameo.

This is how it turned out - pretty adorable.

   The pattern papers are from an older Cricut paper pad. The acetate sheet is from product packaging and there are little gems in the center of the snowflakes that I purchased at Hobby Lobby.


Christmas Cards

It's Christmas card making time around here. This year I have decided to make an eclectic mix of cards rather than the same card multiple times.  I have so many ideas saved on my Christmas Card Pinterest board that I want to give a try.  I am going to be doing themes for each week  - this week is snowmen.  I have 8 snowmen cards pinned to be inspired by.

Here are the cards I made today.

Here are the cards that I pretty much flat out copied.

They turned out way cute and I am excited to make more cards.
