Counterfeit Kit February Part 3

I haven't had a chance to follow along with any of the challenges this month on the Counterfeit Kit blog but having a kit is helping me to actually sit down and play!  I have just had two days off in a row and in between errands I have managed three layouts.  Here are the first two, they are not a double layout but they will sit next to each other in the album.

The title "Hook line and sinker" is a laser cut chipboard shape by RW Laser Cuts (these designs are now cut by WOW Chipboard as RW sadly closed) and I had lots of fun painting it with my paints that The Princess gave me for Christmas.  I even used an old alpha stamp set that my cousin gave me many moons ago!



For the second page I kept the colours similar and repeated the bunting to help with the flow.  Normally I would journal so much more but these are the only memories that any of us could remember!  I have narrowed down the date to possibly around Easter 2000 but I am not writing that on the page until I am sure


I have even used the stamp set that I put in my kit and the Studio Calico date stamp.  I didn't use the date part but I used the tiny row of hexagons on the 'word' section of the dial.  They are such cute teeny hexagons.  The bunting I cut on my Cricut and coloured in the top bit to look like string.  The Princess loaned me the easel she received for Christmas to see if I could get better light outside.  Even in the shade the summer sun is very bright!

  2. Hi Chipper,
    I've just spent a few minutes getting to know you through your blog & super LO's.
    I'm new to the CKC this month but have already made 2 LO's with the kit, one of which I'll use in the blog hop later this month.
    Hope to see you there!

  4. I had to come back and thank you for the iPhone advice. It was so simple---just like you said. I always make things harder than they need to be! Thanks for the help.

  11. Oh my...I loved your kit and the layouts that emerged are fantastic. I really enjoy the title work on the first. The mixed look is so cool. And the banner on the second is FAB! Wish there was a way to FAVE these...maybe I'll bookmark this page b/c I feel a lift coming on!

  14. Such beautiful colors on this layout! And can I just say as a side note that I really loved what you wrote in your "About Me" profile? Really struck a chord with me and I thank you for not only sharing your artistic talents, but for sharing your thoughts and honesty as well.
