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!


September Counterfeit kit

This month the challenge was to counterfeit one of the Citrus Twist Kits, a great challenge. I chose this one, the July add on kit.

And here is what I came up with. I did also get some inspiration from Lisa H who used some Passport papers in her kit. I thought that was a great idea so I used some too, whew finally, been hoarding those a long time! Here are my papers.

then keeping with the travel theme, I added some stickers, flair anything along the travel line I could find.

Then I chose some alphabets, some stamps, some wood veneer and added them. I didn’t do very well on the alphas last month, so I added some more this time, see if that works better.

Then some embellies. I took out some cards, washi, ribbon, etc. I also decided to take out some chipboard. I have a ton of this stuff still so I am hoping to take out at least a couple pieces each month and actually use them! I also added a border strip and anything along the travel line that seemed to go well.

So that is my September kit. I am really enjoying the last couple of months with this! I find limiting my choices actually helps me be more productive, I simply grab my kit and work from that. You should play along and see if it helps you too!
