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

I am glad to see that September has brought some cooler temperatures. It was a very hot and yucky Summer here. Between the weather and some family issues I haven't been enjoying much crafting time. I did make a few scrapbook layouts and I joined a quilt along that was one block a week, but other than that I haven't done anything crafty.
Here is the quilt I have been working on. I have the last block made and now I just have to work on the borders.
And because I have to wait for the border fabric to arrive I decided to start a new project.
These fabrics have been hanging around for years. They have spools of thread, scissors, dress forms, and buttons in shades of blue and pink (think early 90's).
I am going to make a quilt for my Nanny. She is going to be 80 this year and she loves to sew. I am sure the quilt will be well loved.
It feels good to be working on some projects again. The cooler days are cheering me up. Cassie decided that she wants to learn to sew so we se…
June is Build-Your-Own-Kit month at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog.
You should have arrived here from Jemma's blog. If you did not and would like to start at the beginning you can go here.
When I first saw that we were making our own kits I was a little worried. I like having an example kit. I like knowing what colors and patterns to start with. I like direction. Then I started looking through my stash and found some things that have never fit well into any kit. I decided that building my own kit was a great idea. Here is what I came up with.
10 patterned papers and four journal spots. My main colors are purple and green. I also have black, aqua, pink and white.
Eight cardstock and two alphabets.
Three types of misc. embellishments: I chose ribbon, die cuts and little tags.
Something messy:stickles/perfect pearls. Something old: brads. And a roll of old MM tape in place of the Washi.
Two stamp sets and one surprise item: I can't find the second stamp set that I wanted t…
