Breakfast . . .

I'm using my Counterfeit Kit - CKC - Silly Adventures for my layout. I cut down my photo and matted it on the white cardstock. Then used it to cut the height my flower paper. Mine and my youngest's layouts are not quite the full 8" of the yellow sun paper.



I sprinkled around the photo a couple of the flower clusters for my layout and added one of the tags to the bottom of the yellow paper.

I used the circle elements that were part of the die cuts for his layout. The smaller washi tape was the perfect size for a border between the papers.


My oldest son was at Camp Ripley so he was unable to be here for Mother's Day. It was a perfect day, sunshine, no wind or clouds and warm. We had just had snow the week before so this was a nice change.

First Walk - Layout

For my layout I pulled 2 of the unknown papers and the DCWV blue cardstock from my Counterfeit Kit - CKC Silly Adventures. I had also included several punches in my kit and I'm going to use the Martha Stewart Double Arches border punch.

I started out by cutting down and matting my photos onto white cardstock. I cut down the floral paper and the striped paper then inked the edges on everything. Using the Double Arches punch I punched out the red cardstock.


I die cut out of white cardstock the floral piece and I pulled the butterflies from my March CKC- Marvelous Laughter to place onto of the die cut.


For the guy's layouts I has a couple of the light blue butterflies I punched that month also I just doubled them up and add a piece of white string beads to the center. I just couldn't find any light blue mini bead, which is probably why there were not doubled up like the peach colored one was.



I added a little bit of journaling to the bottom of the photos along with another forgery this time from February. I had a couple of hearts left over.

Counterfeit Kit Challenge - Challenge # 1

Today is Challenge  #1 at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog. Our challenge is to Scallops - these can be hand cut, punched, a sticker, stamp, a scalloped border using circles - there are lots of fun ways to create scalloped edges.  I had hand pulled several punches and punched them in black cardstock to audition my page when I was putting my kit together. 

I pulled the Maggie Holmes Beautiful paper from my Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit - Silly Adventures for my layout today.  I finally decided on the Stampin' Up - Eyelet border punch for my layouts. I matted my picture onto white cardstock then onto a teal mat to make it stand out just a bit.


I used a black Sharpie to draw around the green paper as it just needed something to make it stand out.  I used small piece of the green paper on the left side for my journaling spot.



I added a teal butterfly that was die cut for a previous layout and the colors work well with the Maggie Holmes paper. I also thought the layouts need a little bit more so I added a few rub on flowers around the picture.

Forgeries on the Fourth - CKC -Sily Adventures

I am a sucker for any paper that looks like a quilt and the Pink Paislee - Paige Evans Horizon - Paper #14 was calling to me. 


So I pulled out my scraps and started cutting then into 2 1/4" squares.  I tried really hard not to repeat any paper as the inspiration piece doesn't look like it repeated.  I use a sheet of white cardstock and drew lines from corner to corner so I would have something to follow when laying my pieces down.









I had to go back and cut a few more pieces as it wasn't enough.





After gluing everything down I trimmed the edges down and squared up my paper to 12x12.





I really like how it turned out. I think it will make a great layout.

Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to check out Master Forger Leslie  Julene Lori and Lisa's link to the PDF post as they have some great forgeries

So let's break it down a little starting with the paper.


 DIY paper, Cut file paper, Echo Park- Sunshine "3x4 Journaling cards" but I'm using the stripes, the next four papers are unknown, then DCWV blue cardstock and another unknown paper, The green and off white polka paper is from Creative Imagination - Narratives, My Mind's Eye - On the Bright Side "Stitched", Bazzill Atlantic Cardstock, Martha Stewart Classic Woodland Stack, Echo Park - Good Day Sunshine "Sunny Day", Dark blue cardstock, Martha Stewart Classic Woodland Stack, Dear Lizzy - Stay Colorful "8 Tracks", DCWV - Green cardstock,  Maggie Holmes - Gather paper pad, Unknown Pink cardstock, Unknown Anna Griffin Flower paper, DCWV pink cardstock, and Creative Imagination - Sonnets "Buttercup"


Now for the embellishments I also took inspiration from the other kits  I have a Heidi Swapp Arrow Stencil, a few remaining clear sticker unknown collection and die cut words and Bows in black and teal. Alphabet from the  Amy Tangerine - Remarks sticker sheet, and the Studio Calico - Rubber Ombre and of course I still have my alphabet dies. I've included a 6x6 paper pad from Amy Tangerine - On a Whim and a 6x8 paper pad from Simple Stories - Hello Summer. The Colors went well with the inspiration kit and for good cardmaking. I also have a few envelopes and white card bases; Washi tape from Recollections blue colors and two from Carpe Diem "Hight Style" and Posh "totally chic". I have a partially used chipboard stickers and sequins from the Prima Wild and Free collection, little bit of unknown die cuts and die cuts from Simple Stories "Hello Summer". I've included a few punches as I couldn't decide which one I wanted. I just punched them on a  scrap piece of black cardstock and included that in my kit so I can try them out on my pages.. I also used my Silhouette for a couple of die cut a pieces on white cardstock. I picked a few colors of paint and of course I have my inks which I'll pull out as needed. Stamps: Stories by the Month for June, Unity Stamp Company May 2013 KOTM {Totally and Utterly Amazing}and Hero Arts Going stamps  . then there is the basics, for me it is buttons, flowers and DIY enamel dots, I'll add ribbon as needed.
