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.
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.
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!
