January CKC Recap

I did a recap of My CKC kit for January. I had just a few scraps of pattern paper left over and thought this would be a good way to use them up. I had a ton of embellishments left that I have moved back into my stash.

I used the front and back of the Crate Paper – North Pole Collection “Pine” for the Christmas tree strip then layered the rest of the scraps on top.

My pictures was taken without the last two layouts included but my journaling includes the total number of layouts.

 Thanks for stopping by.

Snowflake Candle Holder

I'm use the last full sheet of pattern paper from my January CKC Kit - Holiday Joy. I trimmed it down and backed it with white cardstock. I have a piece of scrap paper behind my photos. I kept this layout pretty simple with a  large die cut snowflake and the glittered clip as my embellishments. The glittered clip holds my journaling.


The glittered clip holds my journaling. I needed to make a quick gift and pulled out a couple of salsa jars. Painted then white and then stamped them with my favorite snowflake stamp.

Thanks for stopping by.

Forgeries on the Fourth February CKC

I wanted to make a couple of the acetate frames that was in the inspiration kit on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog.


I pulled out an older stamp set from Autumn Leaves - Whimsical Frames, ink, embossing powder and a piece of acetate.  I haven't used this set in a while and it's good to see some ink on it.



 
My best results were using colored embossing powders. I have an old recollection set of embossing powers that have no name but a lot of different colors. So I stamped and embossed away.

Remember to keep your heat gun moving and take your time.  I have a couple of frames that buckled due to the heat so I'll just cut that part off.

I hope you pull out some stamps try your hand at make a couple of transparency pieces for your projects.

Don't forget to check out the CKC blog on the 6th for the mini-kit.

Thanks for stopping by

February Counterfeit Kit and blog Hop

Today is the reveal of the Counterfeit Kit Challenge February's inspiration kit. Master Forger Julene chose Noel Mignon's Weekend in Paris kit.  It's a beautiful kit with lots of pinks and blues as the main tone.

You should have arrived from Tina's blog, if not you can start at the beginning of the Hop or continue on (I have the full list below).

There is a Card Kit


and the Classic Kit



I actually have the Daily Diary Kit so I'll be using that and my counterfeit kit Stay Curious.

For my papers I wanted to take out some of the pink so I replaced that with the Coral and Orange colors in the papers. I still have the blues, cream, yellow and grays that are in the original kit.



DCWV- dark gray cardstock, next two sheets - Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Collection – Styleboard, DCWV - The Timeless Texture Stack , My Mind’s Eye – Chalk Studio II, Making Memories – {Note} worthy “Addie pattern Stripe”, Colorbok - Delilah, DCWV – dark coral cardstock, Anna Griffin pattern paper – unknown name, DCWV light coral and white cardstock, Anna Griffin pattern paper unknown name, DCWV gray cardstock, 2 papers Amy Tangerine – Stitched Collection



For the embellishments I've added blue and white pompom trim, various ribbons, buttons, rhinestones, gems,  pearls, various flowers ( I have no coral flowers) and leaves, Heidi Swapp clips – I hope to use up as I only have 3 left; My Art C clothespins and K&I memories heart felt pieces.


Above is some Amy Tangerine cut apart from her Stitched paper pad, doilies, die cuts,  and a Stamp set from Shimelle which has not seen any ink so I thought I should include it. I know I'll be adding other stamps, maybe some mixed media, and some cut files.






As I was cleaning up my scrap space I came across these items and I’m adding it to my kit. 2 papers Amy Tangerine – Stitched Collection and 2 papers - Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Collection – Styleboard, Factory Direct flowers, Dovecraft wooden shapes, Recollections Cabochons in white, premade envelopes, more trim and die cuts.
Your next stop is Lori's  blog My Happy Life for her inspirational kit. The complete blog hop is below.

Christmas Cards

I'm trying to use up a few left overs from my January Counterfeit Kit - Holiday Joy so I've made 10 Christmas cards. I pulled up a few sketches and made two card for each sketch but I'm only showing you one of the cards. I embossed on all the envelopes in various embossing powders.

Cards # 1 and 2: I used A Freshly Made Sketch #317 for this card:


 

Cards # 3 and 4: Another Freshly Made Sketches #318




Cards # 5 and 6 uses Sketch #366 from My Favorite Things:



Cards #7 and 8 used sketch Mojo Monday #480



Cards # 9 and 10 is sketch #56 from Reverse Confetti





I'm adding these to my box for Operation Christmas Card. I still have a few more pieces from my January Counterfeit Kit - Holiday Joy and I'm undecided if I can pound out a few more cards or retire my kit.

Thanks for stopping by.
