March CKC Layouts

One of the Mini challenges at the Counterfeit kit challenge blog was to scraplift yourself. You could do this either by using one of your own layouts as inspiration or by redoing an old layout. I chose the second option. I made the following page about 11 years ago when I first began scrapbooking. Very much Creative Memories style. I have always loved these photos of my now 16 yr old son when he was 5 1/2 months old.

Here is my redo of the layout using my March CKC kit. I used a sketch from Sketches For Scrapbooking Vol 7 by Debbie Sanders & Allison Davis. I am so very pleased with how it came out. The little cloud and elephant accent I cut from a sassafras lass paper I had in the kit. The little umbrella and rain drop stickers are from an older Creative Memories sticker sheet I had in the add-on kit. Isn't my little guy so stinkin cute?

Here is another layout I made using the kit. My mother in law is such a fun Grandma. She sent my kids a package that said "do not open until feb 1st" When we opened it it had a bag of bubble gum and a card for National Bubble Gum Day. SO FUN! the pics are dorky and silly and really capture my kiddos personalities. I am having so much fun using all these misc items that I love!


March Kit - Layout #1

These are photos from last spring. My youngest daughter having a tea party with her dollies. The title reads "Dolly and me Tea" but the y is hard to see in the photo. I used things from both the main kit and the add-on. The Roses are cut from the AMerican Craft Dear Lizzy paper and the little blue dots are punched from the same pattern paper. I am really happy with how girly and fun it is.


March Counterfeit Kit

There is a great new blog that challenges us to create scrapbook kits from our stashes using current for sale kits as inspiration. I played along in January and am doing it again this month. I love how it gets me to combine items I might not and then I actually use them! I have made 4 layouts from the Jan kit I made and still have things left in the kit to make more.

So first here is the blog - counterfeitkitchallenge.blogspot.com
here is my kit for March. I loved the colors in the inspiration kit so I stuck pretty much to it when choosing my papers and embellishments.

and here is my add on kit. I based it off of the sunny clearing add on from the inspiration sight.
and finally here are 2 stamps I chose to accent the kit as well.
I will be posting the layouts and projects I make using this kit over the next month. Let me know if you join the challenge too. I would love to see what you do!
