4th layout, oh yeah



These are some old pics too! The kids playing in the river at our campground years ago. Not only great that I got the pics in an album, but I’ve also been hoarding this paper a ridiculous amount of time! I am so happy to be using stuff up. I am of course still buying paper, but at least now I am using the old stuff too!
The counterfeit kits are a great way to mix some old and new product together you want to use.


First layout from my September kit

Here is the first layout using my September kit. These pictures are so old! I am happy to finally get them in an album. I also used up my border strip on this layout so that’s great too. The travel theme worked with these pictures, so I was able to bring it together pretty quick.

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!
