Pages to share

I had a lovely day scrapbooking with my mum yesterday while my youngest was at daycare. A perfect birthday present for me.

I have a few layouts to share, all using my June Counterfeit Kit of course.

The first layout is also my entry for Aussie Scrap Source Style Lounge challenge. This week the style was Graphic Colour blocked.

A layout with my now not so little boy, sigh

Using some more of my homemade felt flowers here:

And a double layout with my cousins super sweet baby girl Abbey.

When I made this kit I really thought I would struggle to find photos to use. Turns out I have heaps and the kit is a lot more versatile than I first thought.

I am still loving the kit concept and I may have converted my mum too. She couldn't believe how much more productive I was just because I was using what I had in my kit instead of searching all through my stash and basically overthinking everything.

Hope you are having a scrappy day.

Style Lounge - Detailed Whimsy

This week the challenge at Aussie Scrap Source was to create a layout in Iris Baboa Uy's detailed whimsy style.

Here is a close look at the photo. These cousins were born 4 months apart.

My favourite part of the layout is this little stitched on banner with flowers either end.

I have used my June Pretty Counterfeit Kit for this layout (as opposed to my "boy" kit). Maybe my kits need names to save confusion lol. The Butterflies came from my new Stampin' Up! Embosslit. Cute hey.

I wonder what style the challenge will be next week at Aussie??

Happy scrapping

June Counterfeit Kits (Yep Kits!!)

This month the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog have chosen to counterfeit a new kit company Burlap and Buttercups. Their June kit was very pretty with pinks, yellows and greens.

My first thought was a Basic Grey Colllection Kit I had that was not even open. So out came the Two Scoops collection and my counterfeit kit was born.

I have added in some ancient Chatterbox wooden frames instead of the chipboard frames and some frames from Grace Taylor.

I have made some of my own felt flowers and added in some heart pins and a butterfly pin.

So  there we have my first very pretty June Kit.

My second kit came about as I was searching my paper stash I found this cute doily style paper from Sassafrass Lass that tied in with the doily paper in the original kit.

Of course the colours were all wrong for the original kit so I started a second kit with this paper and a couple of others from the same collection to get to this...

I added in some chipboard frames from Heidi Swapp, Lil Davis and Maya Road and swapped the butterflies and flowers for denim gears and hessian lollipops.

The diecut paper is from Grace Taylor. The blues and browns in this kit will be perfect for some boy pages but I am not really sure what to do with the pretty kit...maybe some baby photos???

Hopefully inspiration will hit when the mini challenges are announced. There is some very old product in both these kits so if I get these used I will be one happy scrapper.

There was also the option of creating a Summer kit which I have done as well. I will share mine later this week..the bright summer colours will brighten up these dreary winter days.

Happy scrapping
