Counterfeit Challenge Kit–August

I love the CKC blog!  I love that it inspires me to make up kits from my own stash, and gives ideas and tutorials on how to make some of the bang-up-to-date embellishments, and of course the challenges inspire me to actually get scrapping!

The August kit to be forged is this one, The Confidence Kit from Scrapping from the Inside Out:



Here’s my ‘forged’ kit:

I decided to go with the colours, dark red, aqua, and kraft, but chose brown instead of black, as I don’t have much black.  I blew the dust of my cricut and cut the ‘TODAY’ negative, and the ‘imagine’ speech bubble.  I threw in the Heidi Swapp memory file, as this includes polaroid shaped frames that are so popular at the moment, and I’d like to have a go at this tutorial.

It was my local crop on Saturday, so I did this page with photos of a great nephew’s 1st birthdaySmile.  Look at him eating his chocolate cake!  I did this page as the leftover challenge, the blue piece at the bottom is from my scrap drawers.

This page was for the page of the day ‘10 facts about me’.  I didn’t use the kit for this, these papers come from a stack I bought at Hobbycraft last week.  I cut out 10 little jars – one for each factSmile.  I decided to buy the ‘Dear Lizzy, Lucky Charm’ stack to add to my older papers and try to bring them up to date!  The 10 facts all relate to what I am spending my time doing at the moment.

I am linking up with the Counterfeit Kit Blog August kits.

Thanks for playing along!

Your kit is wonderful. Both of your layouts are great too. I love how you incorporated your scrap paper.

On your second layout I like the use of the jars - I have the same sheet of paper so I think I will scrap lift your idea. Thanks.

Those jars are wonderful, and it has been so interesting reading where you are up to right now. Creative things are way up on the list and I am envious of your being able to ride along a seafront. Sigh! That's a lovely chocolatey page too - such super photos.

Fabulous kit and love that cute baby in the first. Those jars in the second are an inspiration!

Lisa said...

the layout using all those jars is so great and what a fab kit with the most perfect colours.

I adore those jam jars and the match of Kits is pretty close

Gorgeous kit and I love the fact you have done a page about you! I have very similar photos of my son on his 1st birthday covered in chocolate cake...it seems to be fairly common! Thanks for sharing. Caro x (#4)
