Hippity Hoppity Counterfeit Kit Club April Blog Hop

Welcome to the April Counterfeit Kit Club Blog Hop. If you are new to the hop you can visit Counterfeit Kit Challenge here to get started or just continue on from here.

This was my first month joining in with the challenges and my first counterfeit kit. I have to say that I loved it. I have created so many layouts and really felt inspired to scrap. The limitations of a kit work really well for me.

This month's blog hop challenge is a fun one too..we were to visit the design team's blogs and be inspired (easy peasey they had so many gorgeous projects).

I fell in love with Lisa Tottie's Park Day layout here (and how jealous am I that she got to meet Tim Holtz!!).

There was so much about this layout I loved, the little banner, stamping on the edges, misting and masking. Lisa's layout was gorgeous and I am so happy with my cased layout.

I have used my Counterfeit Kit and added in the Tim Holtz Love ticket, Basic Grey Chipboard letters, Rose Moka little letter stickers and of course some ink and mist.

To see all the layouts I created with my April Counterfeit kit just scroll down. 

Your next stop on the blog hop is with the fabulous Lesa here.

Enjoy the hop and don't forget to leave a comment to let me know you stopped by.

Happy Scrapping

Love You Layout 5 (or is it 6)

Another layout from my April Counterfeit Kit. I love the bright papers on a black background. They really pop and I wanted something bright and fun for this cute picture of my little boy Ben way back in 2003.
The papers and letter stickers are from Echo Park. I added in some felt flowers that were sitting on my desk. I can't remember the manufacturer (maybe Bella??). The label stickers are by October Afternoon.

Here is a closer look at the layered stickers and flowers (and my cute boy).

Wet and Wild - Mini Challenge 1

The first monthly mini challenge at Counterfeit Kits is to use memorabilia on a page. I have sewn a pocket to hold the brochure and park map from our trip to Wet and Wild on the Gold Coast last year.

The Wet and Wild title came from the cardboard presentation folder that the photo came in. Unfortunately this is the only photo we have from Wet and Wild as my camera died on our holiday by about day 3 I think. So the photo from the ride is all we have which is why it is great to have the brochure included on my page.

I am seriously running out of kit now but I have another two layouts to share (you will have to wait for the Counterfeit Kit blog hop for one). I think I might be able to squeeze one more layout out of the kit but then that is it all done. Can't wait for the 5th May to start making my next kit.

T & S

My fourth layout from my April Counterfeit Kit.

Most of this page is from my kit, MME and Echo Park papers, journalling spot used for my title from Making Memories, flowers cut with my Stampin' Up! Boho Blossoms punch and layered on some Prima Flowers.

I added in some leaves cut from Scenic Route paper, black ribbon, a black arrow border and made another heart transparency.

I have also splashed some black mist across the page.

I am fast running out of kit...hope I have enough left to tackle the mini challenges.

Happy Scrapping

Crazy Cousins

My third layout from my April Counterfeit Kit. Most of the papers on this one are Echo Park.

I loved the Heart transparency in the original kit so I have made my own with Black Stazon Ink and the heart stamp from "Always" by Stampin' Up!.

The cute birdies are made with my Stampin' Up! Bird Punch.

My sister-in-law Shelley took the great photo of the kids on the play equipment at Nundle. She takes the most amazing photos.

Happy Scrapping


Fairy Floss

We are back from a family camping trip to Urunga on the New South Wales North Coast. The weather was beautiful and the kids had a fantastic time playing at the beach, fishing at the lagoon and just hanging out with Mum and Dad.

Now we are home I have been catching up on a week's worth of washing and sneaking in some scrapbooking while I wait for the washing machine (gotta fill that time some how).

Here is my second layout from my April Counterfeit Kit:

I loved these pics of Matthew with his giant pink fairy floss but his yellow shirt always clashed with my counterfeit kit came to the rescue.

Here are a few details shots:

The border stickers and lettering are by Echo Park, the chipboard leaves are by SEI, felt flowers from Stampin' Up!.

I am finding my scrapping process goes a lot quicker with the limited choices of a kit. Rather than being overwhelmed by all the drawers of product I just get in and scrap..loving it.

Thanks for stopping by

Chalk Art - Counterfeit Kit Layout 1

I was itching to scrap after putting together my counterfeit kit so my first project was a double layout.

A few closeups:

Cute flowers with doilies:

Label holder and layers.

I already have my next project planned (in my mind) now I just need time to put it together.

Counterfeit Kit Challenge

I absolutely love the concept behind Counterfeit Kits. I love the kit clubs and all the gorgeous product but I have so much paper in my scraproom that I need to use so this will be a great motivator to use some older product.

April's Kit to counterfeit was from Front Porch Kits.

The main thing that I noticed was the teal, red, yellow and black colours and of course the birds.

My kit started with some teal papers in my stash and then I added some yellow and went from there.

So I ended up with a bright, colourful kit that should be a lot of fun to use. I swapped calico for the burlap as I didn't have any and added in some journalling spots and stickers I thought would work. The only thing I haven't added yet is some chipboard birds, I know I have a tin of Maya Road birds somewhere!!!

So there you have my kit...not much like the original but it should work for me.

Happy scrapping
