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 birthday. 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 fact. 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.
