Counterfeit Kit July - Two!

Yippee!!  I have a Counterfeit Kit TWO post!!!  I haven't had this much fun in ages and I am so glad I am playing along.  The Princess was very excited by all your comments, so thank you for taking the time to mention her.  She still can't believe it.  We both have more to share with this months kit and my first one is a double page.  I don't normally do doubles but there was a series of four photos so a double seemed the way to go.  

I used three more of my pre-cut Cricut cuts - all from Graphically Speaking.  The border of two's at the bottom, "life's little" at the top and the "moments" at the bottom.  Remember that these were all grey to start with.

These are 'bluer' than they should be (all of the photos this time are) ... I really need to find better natural light :-)

There isn't a great deal to this double and so you think it would have been quick ... nope!  Doubles really make my mind hit a brick wall.

After all these boy layouts from the same event I was getting bored so I pulled out the one flowery paper in my kit and found a photo from another event.  This is still a pre-digital print with only one photo from the day.  

I cut a Cricut title and just built layers with scraps.  I did add the flowers and trims to my kit as I hadn't originally put any in.  The background paper for this layout is probably about 5-6 years old.  I am so happy that it has made it into my albums.  I have so many papers ... I think I have a slight addiction ... well maybe a HUGE one LOL ... and now I am using them!!!!!

So the 'girly' layout was done and I could go back to The Thinker's second birthday and get some more of those ones done.  I had fun with this and even turned the washi tape into bunting (flags)!  I also cut MORE stuff on my Cricut (graphically speaking again!) as I wanted an arrow and the word "pure" just leapt out of the handbook screaming "use me!".  You can't really see it here but in the photo The Thinker has the cutest look of joy on his face.

The Princess had only made a little kit and she has made a second layout (but she doesn't want me to photograph it yet as we are waiting for a photo to be printed)  and then from the scraps she made a door hanger that tells the boys that it is a "Girls Room ONLY", and two little cards.

And that was The Princess' kit finished.  We have really enjoyed doing this together and as there is still a week left of the school holidays I took her shopping for a few more bits and pieces.  Now she is busily making more layouts and cards using some of the Papermania Lucy Cromwell range.  I am sure she is going to want me to add them here too when they are done.  

It is my day off tomorrow and I shall be planning more crafting ... I still can't believe how much I have gotten done this week!  And I feel so much more relaxed.

Happy Crafting,


  1. I like the border of "2"'s on your first layout and all the layering on the girly page. But those bunting flags out of washi tape is ADORABLE! And I love using arrows, although I've never got to use one that big. I have arrow envy! And your daughter's projects are wonderful, too. I especially love the card with the hot air balloon on it. It's so pretty!

  2. Fabulous layouts today! I myself love double page layouts and for me they make scrapping extremely easy...that being said, I typically use a sketch for a starting point. Single pages can be more difficult for me but I am trying to broaden my horizons!!

    The Princess' door hanger and cards are absolutly phenominal!!! I can't wait to see her next finished layout!!!

  3. Love the Washi tape bunting idea...and the Princess' projects are fab!

  4. You have such a nice sense of design! I especially like how you used the star paper in Life's Little Moments - it reads as a cluster. And the Sweet cluster is truly sweet - love your colors. Love the progression of photos on Tonka (and your color scheme) and the Princess really aced it with her door hanger (love!) & the pretty cards (love the bling :~) Happy scrappin' y'all!

  5. Well, somebody is (2 somebodies, in fact, are) crafty these days. Great work here, I especially like those little photo-toppers on the first layout, and the girl's only sign is too cute.


Thanks for taking the time to brighten my day :-)
