One last layout

Well I managed to get in one more layout using my November kit from CFC. I am so happy that I got these all done, and I have to say creating the kit is really working for me. I have tried page kits in the past, in fact I still have a bunch of them made up…. sitting there….. still in baggies….you get the idea. Yet this monthly kit idea really seems to work, I’m as surprised as you lol. So here is my last layout with this kit.

I did end up having to add some black cardstock to make this layout stand out as I thought the colours were just to “beige” without it. I think the black just makes it pop a little more.
A super big thank you to CFC for letting me be their guest designer for November, so much fun, such a talented group of ladies, a fabulous site that I really do recommend you try out. They are doing something a little different for December but will be back with kits again in January. Be sure to check out the December challenges there!

August Counterfeit kit

Well, I thought I would try joining in with The Counterfeit kit challenge and make my own kit, turned out it was far more time consuming than I thought! But it was a lot of fun, and I think as I get better at it, it will go quicker.

Here is the original kit that we are counterfeiting.

And here is what I came up with. It was interesting how what I had imagined in my mind, is not what actually happened, but that’s ok 🙂

The papers:

And I had some scraps already for some of these, so I’m going to throw them in too.

Then some alphas, a couple of 6×6 sheets, and some stamps. I know I don’t have enough alphas, but I found this part just too hard when I had no idea about what photos I would be using etc. I picked a couple I wanted to be sure to try to use, and I will have to take out more as needed.

Then I added some embellies, as you can see most of these have never been opened. Time to use them!

I store my embellishments generally by colour and since I am trying to use up my stash, I went to each colour box and pulled a few things out, just to try to use them up.

Then just a few extras, washi tape, mists, few chipboard pieces, some sequins, I won’t use all the colours, just didn’t want to take those little sequins out!

So here is a picture of my (almost) final kit. I know its a large one, but my thinking is that I am going to work out of this kit until its done. I tried to imagine going away for a weekend and packing stuff to basically do a few pages, minus tools, inks and a few more letter stickers. I am curious to see how close I come to having the right amount of stuff, and how much more I need to add. But really, as long as I’m using stuff up and getting some pages done, I don’t mind at all!!
