Vacation and Explore New Places

I used my Page Set 9 from my July Summer Fun Counterfeit Kit for this set of layouts. My oldest had a couple of days back east that he was able to take in some sights. 



I exchanged the blue and green tags for a couple of the map tags, then layered them with a few green sticker labels for a little bit of journaling on each tag.  I also changed the orange black and white twine to brown twine.
I hand cut the tab behind the photo mats on this page, then uses the corner rounder punch for the edges. I used the Sizzix Life Made Simple die for the Geo Tags with the arrow and heart.  and the tab on the other page. 



I used the 2" circle punch to make the scalloped border with some embossed yellow paper.

Top of the Rock

This layouts comes from the March Counterfeit Kit - Waiting for Spring. using page set #3. I really like being able to pull a page set from my kit and scrap using what is in it.


 
This is what is in Page Kit #3: DCWV Green Cardstock; Pink Paisley - She Art "Soar", Fancy Pants - Botanical "Tulip". There are a few buttons, some silk flowers, a die cut flowers, a couple of shaped brads, lace and some glass squares.




I added a green label, journaling spot, die cut birdies (they were already cut out) and an green stamped image that was already stamped.  I didn't use the ribbon, flower buttons, glass squares, and shaped brads. I put them in the kit with the remaining paper that I haven't used.

Such a Lovely Day

I had some left overs from a few DCWV paper stacks and combined them into this layout and project life page.
 
I hand cut out several of the banners and hearts for this layout. There was a lot of fussy cutting on this page for the elements. I finally just cut all of them out and put then in a IRIS container so they are ready for other layouts.

 
 
I added the "Such a Lovely Day" to the bottom of white cardstock , a white photo mat to another and a heart border to a third and another banner to a fourth. The rest are papers scraps from the

Crisp Autum Air and Harvest Time

Another set from an older Counterfeit Kit this time from November's

I used page set #3 for a set of double page layouts for my guys.  I normally use cardstock for my photo mats but decided to use the grid paper instead.  I'm really trying to get a couple of paper pads used up or out of my stash.


I kept the photo mats the same on the left and right side for the 8 1/2 x11 pages.

The 12x12 pages I added a little bit more of the light orange paper then added photo mats. I strategically cut the pattern paper so that the Crist Autumn Air and Harvest time would still be readable and used a title for the pages.

Love layouts

I'm not sure where the summer has gone. The guys are all moved out, we're back from our trip to Texas, most of the garden renovation is done (just a little bit of movement of plants left to do) and a little bit of cleaning is left in the house and garage.  I have a few page kits left over from previous month and I would like to get them use up or put back into my stash. Hence I' didn't put together a July Kit. I actually had a moment to make a set of pages from an older kit.

 I've watched all of Nicole Jones' video's on Demystifying Clusters.  I love the way she puts page kits together and that she has no problem putting the scraps aside and working on another layout.  I on the other hand have issues - have to use them or they tend to drive me nuts. I know I have a couple of sheet protectors that have scraps in them, but I'm trying to not do that any more. Just more clutter and sometimes I use them sometimes I don't.

This set of pages is from my February Counterfeit Kit - Hello Lovely.

I did a couple of double page layouts for the guys.

 
I changed the photo mat size but kept the amount of photo mats the same. A few hand cut banners from the scraps along with some embroidery floss.



The mists are hard to see, but you can definitely see the large drop on the above picture.
