This month's challenge was to counterfeit the June kit from Citrus Twist called "Summer Boardwalk". It is so full of loveliness it's indescribable, you just have to to have a look to see for yourself.
I so wish I had bought some of that MME's indie chic line, but I just couldn't justify it with all the new purchases I made while I was at the GASC in Arlington last month...I digress. On to my kit which I will call...
I didn't have anything from the original kit, but I just love the colors of this kit that I put together.
I guess I'm not very trendy because I don't have too many chevron patterns in my stash, I guess I will have to make some. The paper is a combination of Bazzill, CTMH cardstock, patterned papers are from MME, SEI, Miss Elizabeth (remember that from the dollar tree?), CTMH, Basic Grey and Karen Foster.
I don't have any wood embellishments either so I used a wood grain paper from Paper Studio and cut out some airplanes and tickets and the long circle border. I also used some Scenic Route journal bubbles, though I'm not really crazy about the bubble aspect and I may cut that off. Finally I added some yellow washi tape, some basic grey green floral tape and the circle washi tape that I just bought last month, I'm not sure who manufactures it though. I did get a book at a book giveaway several months ago and I just now am using my first page from it.
I pulled out bits of stickers and chipboard from CTMH and Basic Grey. I know the Remember is a negative, but I still thought it would make a good title!
The flowers are a mix from my stash, as are the buttons, the floss is DMC and the ink is CTMH. I didn't have any linen fabric so I put in a piece of twill tape.
Another mixture of chipboard and button embellishments from Scenic Route, SEI, Basic Grey and Kay & Co.
The larger stamps are from CTMH and I just got them recently and haven't used them yet. The small stamp is a Studio G and I have had it for several years and haven't used it.
I didn't have the turquoise alpha so I pulled out my Quickutz font Studio and some turquoise paper.
The other alphas are a mix of partially used stickers from SEI, Lillie Bee Designs and Scrap Within Reach.
And because I have a specific event I want to use this kit for I made an add on kit that I am calling
"At The Lake"
I think it's the color of the cardstock that makes me think of a boat dock.
I did pull out a few pieces of paper from CTMH that are newer and one actually has a chevron pattern, the other 2 patterns are from Basic Grey and MME. The cardstock is CTMH and Recollections and the scraps are various manufactures.
I picked up this mask recently and I can't wait to use it!
You know I love my bling! This is a mix between Prima, Want 2 Scrap and Recollections. 6 more white buttons from my collection and another roll of turquoise washi tape. The book page is from a book on television repair that I picked up for free and this will be the first time I use it.
Ribbon is from SEI and the brads are from HL I think since I tossed the packaging.
These 2 overlays are from MME's and I just got them this summer even though I know they are old, I still like them.
Stickers are primarily from CTMH and Adorn It.
Stamps are from CTMH and they are both new and unused.
Glimmer mist is from Tattered Angels.
Here are my kits all ready to go! I can't wait to get started using it!!!
