Counterfeit Kit Challenge #2 - Weekend Time

Counterfeit Kit Challenge #2 - Weekend time. How do you spend your weekend? Create a page about something you do. Maybe you have special meals you prepare on weekends or places you visit. Or just capture the weekend vibe on a page.

I usually have at least one day off on the weekends depending on the time of year. In the winter I work Saturday and get Sunday off in the Summer I have both Saturday and Sunday off.

When I was putting my February CKC kit together I had said that I this kit


and for my layout I am combining some of the products from it with my Stay Curious Counterfeit kit.
My title reads Get It Done & Enjoy This.


I started with the Project life card "Get It Done"  as I wanted it to be part of my title. I had listed out some of the chores I do on weekend but finally cut it down to just show the "Get It Done".


I used one the acetate frames cut in half and layered on top the stickers, embroidery floss, gold Gemz and the Recollection flower.

 I cut out the "&" from another journaling card  and I made another tab out of the polka dot paper and used alphabet stickers for the title.  Another Recollection flower, die cut flower, embroidery floss and the gold Gemz finish off the embellishment cluster.


Another Recollection flower, die cut flower, embroidery floss and the gold Gemz finish off the embellishment cluster.

For the bottom set of photos and journaling spot I added another sticker with a Recollection flower, embroidery floss and gold Gemz. along with a couple of stickers at the bottom of the photo.

I printed out my journaling then matted it to the polka dot paper.

I added another sticker, the other half of the DIY acetate frame, embroidery floss, Recollection flower and a row of the gold Gemz.

My journaling reads:
"I do all my errands on the weekend – making granola for the week, shopping and groceries, any baking I have planned for the coming week and of course getting gas.
In the summer I put my feet up and enjoy my patio and garden but in the winter,  I crochet or sew and quilt. I always seem to find someone who needs an afghan or blanket. If I don’t there are plenty of charities that will take what I make."

January CKC Recap

I did a recap of My CKC kit for January. I had just a few scraps of pattern paper left over and thought this would be a good way to use them up. I had a ton of embellishments left that I have moved back into my stash.

I used the front and back of the Crate Paper – North Pole Collection “Pine” for the Christmas tree strip then layered the rest of the scraps on top.

My pictures was taken without the last two layouts included but my journaling includes the total number of layouts.

 Thanks for stopping by.

Snowflake Candle Holder

I'm use the last full sheet of pattern paper from my January CKC Kit - Holiday Joy. I trimmed it down and backed it with white cardstock. I have a piece of scrap paper behind my photos. I kept this layout pretty simple with a  large die cut snowflake and the glittered clip as my embellishments. The glittered clip holds my journaling.


The glittered clip holds my journaling. I needed to make a quick gift and pulled out a couple of salsa jars. Painted then white and then stamped them with my favorite snowflake stamp.

Thanks for stopping by.

Forgeries on the Fourth February CKC

I wanted to make a couple of the acetate frames that was in the inspiration kit on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog.


I pulled out an older stamp set from Autumn Leaves - Whimsical Frames, ink, embossing powder and a piece of acetate.  I haven't used this set in a while and it's good to see some ink on it.



 
My best results were using colored embossing powders. I have an old recollection set of embossing powers that have no name but a lot of different colors. So I stamped and embossed away.

Remember to keep your heat gun moving and take your time.  I have a couple of frames that buckled due to the heat so I'll just cut that part off.

I hope you pull out some stamps try your hand at make a couple of transparency pieces for your projects.

Don't forget to check out the CKC blog on the 6th for the mini-kit.

February Counterfeit Kit and blog Hop

Today is the reveal of the Counterfeit Kit Challenge February's inspiration kit. Master Forger Julene chose Noel Mignon's Weekend in Paris kit.  It's a beautiful kit with lots of pinks and blues as the main tone.

You should have arrived from Tina's blog, if not you can start at the beginning of the Hop or continue on (I have the full list below).

There is a Card Kit


and the Classic Kit



I actually have the Daily Diary Kit so I'll be using that and my counterfeit kit Stay Curious.

For my papers I wanted to take out some of the pink so I replaced that with the Coral and Orange colors in the papers. I still have the blues, cream, yellow and grays that are in the original kit.



DCWV- dark gray cardstock, next two sheets - Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Collection – Styleboard, DCWV - The Timeless Texture Stack , My Mind’s Eye – Chalk Studio II, Making Memories – {Note} worthy “Addie pattern Stripe”, Colorbok - Delilah, DCWV – dark coral cardstock, Anna Griffin pattern paper – unknown name, DCWV light coral and white cardstock, Anna Griffin pattern paper unknown name, DCWV gray cardstock, 2 papers Amy Tangerine – Stitched Collection



For the embellishments I've added blue and white pompom trim, various ribbons, buttons, rhinestones, gems,  pearls, various flowers ( I have no coral flowers) and leaves, Heidi Swapp clips – I hope to use up as I only have 3 left; My Art C clothespins and K&I memories heart felt pieces.


Above is some Amy Tangerine cut apart from her Stitched paper pad, doilies, die cuts,  and a Stamp set from Shimelle which has not seen any ink so I thought I should include it. I know I'll be adding other stamps, maybe some mixed media, and some cut files.






As I was cleaning up my scrap space I came across these items and I’m adding it to my kit. 2 papers Amy Tangerine – Stitched Collection and 2 papers - Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Collection – Styleboard, Factory Direct flowers, Dovecraft wooden shapes, Recollections Cabochons in white, premade envelopes, more trim and die cuts.
