September 2014 CKC--Hello There Leaves

Here is a layout I did using my September 2014 CKC kit. I was inspired to make the layout using the Scrapbook Generation Sketchbook Volume 2, 7 photo sketch.
 
These are my grandkids Cameron and Zoë.
 
I love the pattern papers that are in this kit, they matched the photos so well!

I love how all the embellishments worked so well with these pages.

I cut  the top of a project life care off and tucked the saying "this happened" under the photo.

I love how my title turned out.

Some of these embellishments are over 10 years old.

I didn't think I would use this portion of this journaling card, but I'm glad I was able to!

This is a printable from pinterest, I had several of them in different colors and I think this is the last one.

Those little green resin corner embellishments have been in my stash for well over 10 years, probably closer to 15 years or more.

April 2014 CKC Cards

I don't have any new Christmas cards to share with you today so I will share some that I made a while ago.

I had lots of scraps and random bits in my April 2014 CKC and decided to make some cards.
I love that I was able to use up so many scraps, bits and pieces from my April 2014 CKC kit!

I love that I finally used those tiny flowers, they have been in my stash forever!

I also love that I was able to use so many bits of 6x6 papers for these cards.

I even used some cut apart pieces.

All the inks and stamps are from CTMH.

November 2014 CKC

Hello Friends!
 
Today I am sharing my November 2014 Counterfeit Kit called "Autumn Play," it's based on the CKC inspiration kit from Scrapbook & Cards Crop and Create fall kit.
 
 
Yes....it's HUGE!!!

There's lots of paper, including 4x6 paper scraps from my stash.

Lots of stickers, bling and washi tape.

Multiple alpha's, chipboard and metal embellishment.

I've added in lots of ribbon, paper tape and wood veneer embellishments.

I even added some pearl paint, stamps from CTMH and some roller stamp from my stash.
 
Here is the video of my November 2014 CKC kit on you tube...
 
 
I can't wait to start creating with this kit but I am currently working on my July and August 2014 CKC kits to make Christmas gifts, so stay tuned, I'm sure to use it soon!

Mamaw Anne's Birthday Visit--Nov 2013 CKC


Sunday's are the day I have set aside to show layouts that are quite old! LoL!! I actually did them and uploaded the photos and then got busy or totally forgot to get them published on the blog. So here's another one.

Here is a layout using my prized chatterbox paper! The paper background is much busier than I usually put together but it somehow works!

The background papers feel quite busy now that I'm looking back at this one but I do love the overall fell of the layout...maybe it's the subject content!!

I used a white signo pen to journal on this layout.

This kit actually had lots of random bits and pieces that I thought went together quite well.

I love all those little flowers!

July/August 2014 CKC--2015 Calendars

 Hello Friends!
 
Every year I make calendars for Christmas gifts, I make 1 12x12 and 4 8x8's, this year because I spent the summer in school and doing clinical hours I had several Counterfeit kits on my shelf that hadn't been touched. I decided to pull down the July and August 2014 CKC kits to use for the calendars.
 
The cover's are actually the last part of the calendar that I get done because I typically like to use scarps layered up to create the cover.
 
I love all the covers but this one is a favorite because of the lovely colors!
 
I used a mat stack from paper studio for the photo mats, they were originally sized at 4.5x6.5 mats and I just cut them to size. The first ones have the measurements on them so that I know what size the mat is, I can either cut the photo to the size of the mat or slightly smaller. I also used my Quickutz calendar dies to create the monthly titles in the 8x8 calendars.

January
I added 8.5x11 blue cardstock on the 8x8 layouts.

February
I added dark red 8.5x11 cardstock to the 8x8 layouts.

March
I added 8.5x11 green cardstock to the 8x8 layouts.

April
I added 8.5x11 yellow cardstock to the 8x8 layouts.

May

June

July
I added 8.5x11 hot pink cardstock to the 8x8 layouts.

August
I added 8.5x11 purple cardstock to the 8x8 layouts.

September

October
I added in the orange and black Halloween washi tapes to these pages.

November

December
I used my Christmas papers to create these pages.
 
I hope my calendars inspire you to make your own calendar for Christmas!
