Challenge #2 August

Our second challenge this month at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog is to make a layout and then a card inspired by our layout. Our kit this month was all primary colors that would normally lead to a childrens layout for me. For some reason I was drawn to these pictures of Cassie the morning we went to the hospital for her to have Ben. Her shirt was black and pink so it really didn't match my kit at all. When I looked through my kit I found that the blue flowered paper had small pink dots in the centers of some of the flowers. I originally chose this paper for my kit because some of the centers are red.
I am going to add a little story about her delivery on the white tag. I am so happy that I added the chipboard letters to my kit. I never use chipboard letters anymore even though I have dozens of sets here. I am going to make more effort to use them.

My card is simple. I used a popsicle stick because I had them out from making the layout. The pink frame matches the brackets, tag and paisley from the layout. The butterflies were used to replace the blue of my paper and alphas. And the pink and black papers were the scraps from my layout.

I love the idea of making cards with layout extras. I imagine it would cut down on the leftover embellishments and scraps of paper that tend to pile up.

Thanks for looking.

Counterfeit Kit August Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on the Hop.
This month at the CKC blog we are counterfeiting a digi-kit. Here is the link to the original kit. I like the primary colors of the kit and the summery feel of the embellishments.

I started with the same colors but switched up the patterns. Some of these papers have been in my stash for about 10 years!

I added a lot of primary colored embellishments. I am sure I won't use many, but these are the ones that jumped out at me.

I added four sets of alphas and I found these two sets of chipboard pieces that each had a few pieces that looked good with my papers.

Your next stop will be Julie Ann
If you decide to make a kit be sure to link up so we can see it. Thank you for Hopping by..
