July 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!
 
Today I am sharing my July 2015 CKC. Right... that's July!
LoL!!
Better late than never.
 
I haven't even scrapped a page with my July kit, but I did manage to put it together and it's still sitting on my table in my scrap room, I'm about to box it up and put it up on my shelf until I get the time to play with it. I'm sure there will be a time when I don't feel like putting a kit together and it will be nice to have this one ready to go.
 
Stay tuned in because tomorrow I will be sharing my September CKC.
 
It's not nearly as big as it usually is but it still has quite a few embellishments.
 
Not too much paper though, so I might have to add some plain cardstock to bulk it up some.

Lots of lettering options.
 
Here is the video I made...

Together--August 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!!
Today I'm sharing the last layout I created using my August 2015 Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit
 
I was inspired to create this layout using the Scrap Our Stash #29 challenge. The challenge was a tic-tac-toe challenge and you chose the set of 3 themes you wanted to use. I chose Tags, 4+ Pattern Papers and Stripes.
 
The yellow paper is the stripe paper as is the tiny heart to the left of the yellow paper.

The tag is tucked under the photo and says delight.

Finally 4+ pattern papers, I used a total of 8 pattern papers on this layout.

Christmas Cards

Hello Friends!
 
Today I am sharing Christmas cards that I made during the month of August. I have sorely fallen behind in making Christmas cards this year so hopefully over the coming weeks I will be getting caught up so that I will have plenty to send out this Christmas season!
 
The cards came in a kit from Stampin Up last year and of course I didn't follow the plan that came with the kit, I hunted through pinterest and even hit up some sketch blogs to come up with these 5 cards.

Always Make Time for Fun--August 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!!
 
Today I am sharing a layout that I made using my August Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit. I made the tag I used for my title by following a sketch at the Scrapbook Generation Create Magazine, July edition. It made the title a bit small but it did add in some of the dark blue color that I wanted.
 
I added several items from my Freckled Fawn kits, the 2 tone orange hearts, the hello flair, the yellow epoxy heart and the number 3.
 
 
I used lots of the bits from the ephemera kit to this layout along with lots of branding strip scraps.

The circles border between the photo is a sticker border strip that I cut out and fussy cut the circle out and used a bit of them here.

I also used several bits from my scrap die cuts that I added to this kit.

Shredder Girl--August 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!
 
Today I am sharing a layout I created with my August Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit.
I used some gold paint on this one that I hadn't added to my kit but had sitting on my desk.
 
On an earlier layout I used the stencil pattern you see on this background and this is actually the negative side, I just flipped the stencil over and rubbed it onto a scrap of paper.
 
Pagemaps Sketch from August 2015

I used the metal tags I added to the kit n this layout, I threaded some dark blue twine to the plain cream color twine and layed them across the top of the layout.
 
I added several bits from my Freckled Fawn kit this month, the gold arrows, the transparent alpha, the camera, the red tag and word sticker, and the enamel dots and stars.

The XOXO is a bit of washi tape from the washi tape booklet. The flair is from one of my FF kits.

These epoxy bits are from one of my FF kits.

Milk Drunk--August 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!!
 
Today I'm sharing a layout from my August 2015 CKC kit.
 
My sweet little Grandee after taking her bottle.
 
 
 
The title is made using a transparent alpha that came in my FF kit, I also added the plastic heart clip, enamel dot and the chipboard hearts from my FF kit.

I actually used a stencil and paint to create a background but I covered most of it up. I tried to get the paint to drip where I placed the sweet PL card but it ended up making a mess, hence the cover up.

Here's a close up of the stenciling  as well as the colored wood veneer from my FF kit.

Love Every Moment With You--August 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!!
 
Today I'm sharing a layout of Mr Gulley.
 
 
I was inspired to create this layout from the AshleyHortonDesignsBlog August 13, 2015
 
I used the blue and green flat alphas to create the background behind the cutout.

I also added in the Kraft alpha from the my kit and the chipboard hearts and paperclip from my FF kit.

I just layered the photo up on a bit of blue cardstock and the striped paper is actually a bit of cut apart from an old CSI coordinates sheet.

Hi Friends!!
Today I am sharing another layout I made using my August 2015 CKC kit.
 
The layout is of our sweet little grandee Ele when she same to visit a month after being born. She's still soo tiny!!

I used a couple of enamel dots from my FF embellishment kit, as well as some brads.

I used the AC thickers alpha along with the block alpha on the sticker sheet here.

I added in a little bit of the blue washi from Grace Tollman and even some little gold trimmed feathers from the PL kit. The Lucky Us frame is actually a 3x4 PL card cut down.

Love that I used lots of scraps of paper on this layout!
