April 2014 CKC--Believe

Hello Friends!!
Today I'm sharing another layout that I made last year using my April 2014 CKC.

The inspiration for this page came from Sketch #98 from the Creative Scrappers website.
This is a layout of my sweet Grandee Shani. I used tons of embellishments on this layout. The title on this one is a wood veneer.
That little metal bow has been in my stash for quite some time! Can you see the paisley acetate piece here? It's much more prominent in person.

Lots of random bits and pieces here.

It's April 2015 and I'm still using these cut apart words...but I have fewer now than when I put this kit together.
Thanks for visiting my blog today Friends!!!

April 2014 CKC--Moments that Matter

Hello Friends!
Today I'm sharing a layout that I made in April 2014 using my Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit.

The inspiration for this 2 page layout came from CTMH Make it from the Heart Vol.1.
Sorry the editing isn't the best for this layout but this is the month that I quite literally dumped all my photos from my disc into the great beyond. Thankfully I was able to resurrect them but unfortunately I wasn't able to edit them. These are photos from our trip to Destin, Florida in 2013.

I cut the circle mat on my silhouette and used brads, blare, cork and some random stickers to fill the holes. The also used a family wood veneer here.

The doily with is a wood veneer. I used a little chipboard piece that I had taken the center piece out of to be a frame around the photo on the top.

I used lots and lots of photos on this layout.

The Kraft color border here is actually a bit from CTMH that has adhesive on the back already. I bought a package of those years ago and I still have tons and tons left.

May You Always Walk in Sunshine--March 2015 CKC

Hello friends!
Today I am sharing another layout from my March 2015 Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit.
The layout is of my sister.
We were on the beach at Enid Lake Mississippi enjoying the sun, sand and water.
I was inspired to make the layout using a sketch from Pagemaps December 2007.
I added a strip of pearls along the top of the layout and as you can also see I added a border strip along the top of the photo.

I added a wood veneer frame here on top of a bit of a 6x6 paper from one of the paper pads I pulled into my kit.

Here I added several bits of scraps along with a coaster board ribbon embellishment that I cut into and gave a banner tail to match the scraps.

I added a bit of a doily here along with a heart sticker, a flair and a resin piece.

Some Where Over America--March 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!
I'm sharing another layout I made using my March 2015 counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit.
The background page is actually one that came with a pocket page kit that I bought from my CTMH dealer. It is double sided and the front is intended for the fist page of an album and the back side is made up to be a pocket page spread.

The once upon a time was already on the page and I added the other words.

I also added a few more bits to identify that the photos were from July on 2014.

The resin bits are from the matching embellishments options from CTMH and I just added a few pocket page cards here.

I layered up some pocket page cards along with the photo on the backside to complete this layout.

The hearts are stickers that I added in.

More letter stickers here.

The chipboard piece is from the matching embellishment pieces.

March 2015 CKC Pocket Page

Hello Friends!!
Here is a pocket page full of photos from the trip to Enid Lake Mississippi that I took with my sister and her daughter and grand daughters.
Of course they get to spend tons of time here because my mother lives less than a mile from this little beach by the dam, but I call it a special day when I get to spend time here.

The embellishments on this photo are actually from the leftover bowl on my desk. I have tons of random bits and leftovers in that bowl that work well on pocket pages.

I jazzed up the card with some washi and a vellum word.

A bit of chipboard and a sticker here.

I cut the title out of one Pocket Page card and used it on the same card with some foam adhesive behind it.

Lots of random bits here.

More randomness to dress this photo up.

The back side, I just need to do the journaling on it and it will be done.
Love this one!
I didn't add any embellishment to this pocket page card, just left it alone.
Some more randomness here.

The card that I need to journal on.

My niece and her girls.
Just a bit of randomness on this card.

All of Us at the Lake--March 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!
Today I am sharing another layout that I made from my March 2015 CKC, the subjects are my Niece Amber and her 3 girls; Abigail, Aubree and Autumn.
I started the layout with a sketch from Allison Davis 1 Page Sketch Book

I used a chipboard embellishment along with some sequins here.

I used an acetate title from the kit along with some random bits  from a leftovers bowl on my desk.  I also sprinkled some sequins and rub ons about the page.
The ticket on the side has a rub-on on it.

A pocket page 3x4 card along with some random embellishments and some rub ons.

Use Your Stuff Challenge #180--Angything Goes

Hello Friends!!!
This is a layout that I made using my March 2015 Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit for the Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog--anything goes challenge.
I used a sketch from Allison Davis 1 Page Sketch book.
The super sweet cutie in the photo is my sisters grand daughter Autumn.
She found a rock and was quite proud of herself for finding it!

I used a  pocket page card along with 2 different fonts here to create the title.
The little butterfly  has been in my stash for years and is from Jenny Bolin.
The "Roam" embellishment is one that I cut from a pocket page 3x4 card, the remainder of the card is cut in half and tucked into the border strip.
I also used these words that I had cut out from a page from Echo Park last April to use in my CKC kit.
That's it for today!
Why don't you head over to the Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog and play along with the Anything Goes challenge this week!
We would love to see what you create this week!!

April 2014 CKC--Uno

Hello Friends!
Today I'm sharing a layout that I made last year using my April 2014 CKC. School was just too busy for me to be able to scrap, blog, do  homework and have a life so I had to choose which was most important and well blogging just didn't get done. So now that I have more time I'm finally able to share these older layouts. I'm using my weekends to do this since I'm trying to keep up with my most recent layouts through the week.

The inspiration for this layout came from Sketch #111 from the Creative Scrappers website.
I love that I was able to use this really busy background paper as the base for the layout.

I also used a technique that another scrapper showed me on her You Tube channel, her name is MercyTiara. To unify all the random papers used I outlined each paper. Seems kind of simple but in my mind it really works!

I used tons of random embellishments from the kit, I love how they all work together. The title kind of blended into the background so I outlined it with a black pen.

More randomness to go with the journaling here at the bottom.
