April Counterfeit Kit Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog

The April Inspiration kit from Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog is Cocoa Daisy's February "Ashton Court"


Love the mix of light to darker colors but I couldn't decide on which way to go so I've included both in my April Kit - Glorious Garden.

The first of papers is from the ColorBox Collections - Mint Julep and Deliliah

I've add ribbon flowers, a few metal pieces, buttons and some die cuts as embellishments.

My second set of papers brings in the reds and darker blues. I've included some shaped papers that I'm determined to get out of my stash this month.

Bella Blvd - Christmas Wished "Candlelight"; Creative Imaginations - Flourishes Poppy; DCWV - Photo Reel; Jenny Bowlin - Red Circle Flower, Red Wallpaper and Oilcloth; TPC Studio - Boho Blooms "Lemon Love" and "Pink Passion Flourish"; Little Yellow Bicycle - Decorative Edge Cardstock; Recollections - Red Denim Love; Bella Blvd - Socialite " Dance Circle"; the Girls Paperie - Jubilee; Pop Culture - Lava Lamp and a partial sheet of NRN - Glorious Garden.

For the embellishments I have some chipboard, ribbon, buttons, stamped images and stickers that have been in my stash for a very long time.

I will be adding cardstock, stamps, some Cricut or Silhouette cuts to the mix later.

Thanks for stopping by.

100 Pattern Paper Challenge

I finally joined the 100 Pattern Paper Challenge Facebook group. I have a few sheets of pattern paper that I would like to get used up. Some are full sheets some are scraps. It's kind of like spring cleaning only using your scrapbook supplies. I didn't pull a full 100 at this time but I have a total of 52 sheets of pattern paper.

 The April Challenge for the group is to use 25 sheets of Kraft Cardstock. I'm pretty sure I can do that.  I tend to scrapbook double page layouts for the three of us which is 4 double page layouts a piece plus one extra page.

Here is a close up of all the pages sets.

Page Set 1: 4 pattern papers

Amy Tangerine - Stitched (Map Paper); My Minds Eye - She did it; The Paper Studio - Tattered and Worn Stack; DCWV - The Everything Stack; 3x4 journaling cards; plastic flowers; labels.

Page Set 2: 4 pattern papers

Kraft cardstock; October Afternoon - Seaside "Board Walk"; DCWV - Gray, Red, Tan and Yellow cardstock; Paper Studio - Tattered and Worn; DCWV - Corrugated cardstock an Unknown orange; and gray seam binding.
Page Set 3: 6 pattern papers

Is a scraps from the Jen Hatfield - Home Made "the Best of" paper pad' The Paper Studio -Tattered and Worn; White and blue cardstock; doily pieces dog cuts from the Cricut; and a few hand cut frames I though I could use as journaling spots.

Page Set 4: Part 1 - 7 pattern papers

I'm not positive where all of these came from but I think the full sheets are from the Four Seasons Stack and the pieces are from The Slab Stack. I've also included a couple of pieces of green and kraft card stock and olive green seam binding.

Page Set 4 Part 2: - 7 pattern papers

I have not included any cardstock but will add that when I use this set.

Page Set 5: 2 pattern papers

DCWV - The Ultimate Premium Stack

Page Set 6: 8 pattern papers

Is another set of papers from the Jen Hatfield - Home Made "The Best Of" Collection. Most of these are scraps but there are a few 12x12 pieces of paper, 2 sheets of cut aparts. I'll be adding cardstock to this set also.

Page Set 7: 10 pattern papers

I've pulled more paper from The Slab and Four Seasons paper pads

Page Set 8: 4 pattern papers

Is a left over kit from the Paper Studio. I used a few of the sheets and maybe a sticker or two but there is still a lot left.

I didn't take the time add embellishments to most of the page kits, so I'll add that as I go along with cardstock. I just can't seem to scrap a page with it. I always print the monthly Page Maps and have a few sketches saved on Pinterest I'll reference for inspiration.

Thanks for Stopping by.
