RTS 4 for 4, Summer Challenge!

Hello again,

Just a quick share of my layouts I created when I participated in Janet Madison’s 4 for 4 Summer Series. For those of you who don’t know, Janet is a wonderful, experienced scrapbooker who loves to share her skills and knowledge with others. Janet has her own unnamedYouTube channel where she offers a huge range of videos based around the various needs of her followers. Some of the series she produces deal with the organisation of your supplies, making your own scrapbook kits, and scrapbook tips and tricks to speed up the scrapbook process.

The 4 for 4 series demonstrates how to create layouts using only 4 papers with some embellishments, and a few supplement papers (which are optional). You end up with 4 layouts, either single or double (you choose) and a set of cards. I tend to only make the layouts and never quite get to the cardmaking, using those paper pieces for more layouts. It’s a fun process to try and those participating often share what they create on the FB Love RTS group page.

This series was a summer theme and for us down under, in Australia, well we are dealing with winter, wet and cold days. I didn’t have any summer photos to scrap, so I went with gardening photos, more of a Spring and Autumn approach. Below is what I worked on, four double-page layouts of my garden.

I started by selecting my papers, a range of patterned papers and some coloured cardstock. The beautiful garden-themed papers are from the DCWV Botanical Beauty pad, it is one of those collections which you never want to cut into. Absolutely gorgeous botanical beauty DCWVpapers, and if I get the chance to buy a second pad I will snatch it up, it’s amazing. I ended up using very little of the cardstock or supplement papers, and just focused on using my main four papers and white cardstock. Mainly because I wanted to include some stamped images, some lovely insects from the Tim Holtz Entomology stamp set.

My embellishment selection ended up huge. I went through everything looking for anything that had a garden feel or went with my paper colour selection.

Janet’s instructions, putting together your kit.

The first part of the process has you cutting your 4 papers into pieces following Janet’s very clear advice in her video.

Janet releases the videos slowly, about a week apart for each layout. It can be agonising waiting for each video, as you are excited to get creating! The videos are worth the wait, her delivery is very friendly and down to earth, often you will find yourself laughing along with Janet who has a wicked sense of humour.

My Layout #1.

I used photos of Gazania flowers in our springtime garden, they are so colourful and cheery and worked beautifully with the paper I had selected. The black strips on the layout are actually copper metallic washi tape, it didn’t photo well, as it is reflective.

Janet’s instructions are here.

My Layout #2.

This layout is of our vegetable garden just before our Spring planting. The garden beds have been weeded and prepped ready for new seeds and seedlings. Luckily for me, Hubby is a mad gardener and loves growing produce which helps cuts grocery costs and gives us a healthy diet. It was very useful when we had young children, now we produce far more than we can eat and pass it on to family and friends.

Janet’s instructions are here.

My Layout #3.

This layout is some Autumn colour in our garden.

Janet’s instructions are here.

My Layout #4.

My last layout is various shots of the garden and property in October, hubby likes to snap photos on his phone of what is happening in the garden each month. I used fewer photos than Janet, as my photos were larger.

Janet’s instructions are here.

Well, that’s it! I have lots of bits and pieces left to complete some more garden layouts. If you are interested in making Janet’s cards here are the instructions.

Look into joining the Love RTS Facebook group and join in the fun, a great bunch of people who share and help each other with their crafting needs.

Keep on scrapping 🙂

 

RTS & CKC Mar. 2019-Layouts #9 & #10

Hello and happy St Pats Day,

Today I am sharing the last two layouts I made using Janet Madison’s RTS 4 for 4 series unnamedtechnique. You can view all of Janet’s videos for the series on her YouTube channel, RTS (Record the Story) Scrapbooking. As usual, I made some changes along the way, something Janet promotes…there is no one way, make it your own!

You can see the collection of papers I started with on my last post, I chose very feminine papers from my March Counterfeit Kit Challenge. Using the 4 for 4 series you end up making 4 layouts using 5 patterned 12×12 pieces of paper cut to different sizes and then working on a cardstock background. The leftover scraps are used to make cards with, something which I haven’t tried yet. Years ago, when I first ventured into papercraft, cards were my main focus. I even sold them through several businesses, was commissioned to create them, taught classes on stamping and cardmaking, and had tutorials published. Now, I just can’t get enthusiastic about making cards, though I do ooh and aah over all the new stamp releases. However, I agree with Janet that we should all be making our own gift cards, we have the skills and loads of scraps to use up!

Layout #9 (for CKC, #3 for RTS-4 for 4)

For this layout, I selected a very light, shell pink cardstock for the background. You can see the patterned papers cut to Janet’s specified sizes, I used a mix of old and new papers. A lovely raspberry pink floral, a text (a recent purchase, Jilliebean – Reap the Grain) and a strip of mint, criss-cross kisses. The butterfly and flowers die cuts are from Tim Holtz’s idea-ology salvaged elements, and I chose a few tags to include from my stash.

I put the background together first. I had an issue with the text paper, it probably wouldn’t have bothered most people but I do suffer a little from perfectionism. If you read the text you can see that there are some words and quotes which don’t fit with my photo. My photo is a 4×4 of my daughter by herself and several parts of the text refer to more than one person…see how picky I am. There is the terms: You & Me, Family, and together. I couldn’t work with this and needed to find ways to cover up these terms. The first thing I did was add the mint criss-cross strip across the term ‘& Me’, it didn’t quite cover it all, so I add a strip of gold, glitter washi tape. Problem solved!

IMG_6426

Next, I needed to deal with the large words, ‘Family’and ‘together’, on the right-hand side. Fortunately, my photo would cover this area, but it did mean that the placement was different from Janet’s recommendation.

I then thought the photo needed to stand out more from the background and added a white cardstock border. I wanted to include my handmade gold frames in this layout and mounted them on some scrap pink checked paper. They would do a good job at covering up the text on the left of the layout, and be substituted for the absence of photos. Janet’s #3 layout uses 3 photos and I only had one.

IMG_6431

I had wanted to use the teal glitter Thickers from my CKC kit and thought I needed to get some teal colour on the page, as my papers did not include this colour. So, out came some distress ink and a cheap stencil. I focused on stencilling over the areas with the inappropriate (for me) text.

Next, I went to work adding the embellishments strategically placing them to cover up those annoying words. This took me quite a lot of time, I moved things around a lot and it just wasn’t working for me. I also stamped on some distress raspberry pink, little foliage images to try and pull it all together, around the clusters. A few tiny punched out red hearts and flowers were also added.

I’m not completely happy with the end result, but as Janet always tells us ‘the friends and family looking through the albums will not notice’. It is us that is far too critical of our own work. We need to learn to…let it be, let it be!

IMG_6471

 

Layout #10 (for CKC, #4 for RTS-4 for 4)

So, this layout starts out with me scanning and enlarging the photo I want to use. Like my previous layouts, it is an old photo of my daughter which was once framed and hung on our hallway wall. The papers used are the same as Layout #9, except for a little strip of the large flower print (used in Layouts 7 & 8). I chose a few tags and a daisy die cut from my CKC kit and decided to work on white cardstock so I could splash around some ink.

I pulled out my favourite oxide ink, Mustard Seed, it creates an amazing golden yellow, and I used the plastic bag technique, activating the ink with water, to create a vibrant background.

Next, I wanted to include some stencilling on the background, picking up a few of the colours form the ‘LOVE’ tag. I put a few washi tape strips along the base of the page and then got busy stencilling on some simple shaped flowers using a range of distress ink colours. They blended beautifully, creating an almost rainbow coloured effect. I also stencilled a strip of white cardstock to use for some embellishments.

Time to fussy cut out those flowers.

Now, I needed to create some frames from scraps to cover the rough edges and bits of white left around my trimmed down photo. As, previously, I used the old Creative Memories cutting system, it was a quick and easy option.

IMG_6454

Then, I mounted the photo and frames onto the layout using foam tape.

IMG_6458

Time to build up the layers of embellishments, both handmade (stamped & stencilled) and purchased. A mix of flowers, tags and enamel dots. Then some Thickers for the title.

The end result is a very, bright, colourful layout, a lot more intense than I envisaged. Another layout in the album, happy scrapping everyone.

RTS & CKC Mar. 2019- Layouts #7 & #8

Good morning,

Today I am sharing two layouts I made using my March Counterfeit Kit Challenge and my second attempt at Janet Madison’s, RTS Scrapbooking 4 for 4 series. Once again, I unnamedmixed things up using old and new supplies and this time added some stamping and splashes of watercolour paint. Both of the layouts are using old photos of my daughter, the photos were once framed and hung in our hallway. Unfortunately, over the years, they have fallen off the wall and the frames had smashed, I hid them away waiting for the right sized frames to come along with which to fix them. I have had no luck in finding similar sized and shaped frames, so I decided to use them as is or scan the photos (to enlarge) and create layouts to include in my daughter’s albums. Here is the result…

My paper selection for this RTS 4 for 4 kit was selected from my March CKC kit, I went very girly this time and included flowers and ice-cream coloured cardstocks.

Layout #7

Here are my papers cut to size according to Janet’s directions, the cardstock, a lovely buttery yellow and a few embellishments I chose to include.

IMG_6278

A little fun stencilling along two edges of the cardstock, using Distress Oxide inks and an old $2 stencil from the Reject shop.

Then, some stamping over the stencilling to build up a little more interest and draw the eye. I used a few different stamps which had I had collected from past monthly Uniquely Creative subscription kits.

A few splashes of watercolour paint…

Then, adhering the patterned paper pieces to create the background as per. Janet’s instructions.

IMG_6292

Next, I decided to use the original photo as it was a reasonable size (6×4) with only the corners being trimmed off. I think it was originally in an octagon shaped frame. I doubled mounted the photo onto white cardstock and the #5 patterned paper. Then, I used two scraps, to mount behind the photo.

Now, how to hide those trimmed corners? Washi tape of course! Which I also used on the background.

Time for some embellishments, some Uniquely Creative dies cut made with my Sizzix Big Shot, tags, wood veneer flowers (KaiserCraft), butterflies (Tim Holtz), punched hearts, enamel dots and die cut flowers (Tim Holtz). For the title, I used American Crafts, Hardcover, Thickers.

The finished layout just screams sunshine, summer days and a pretty girl. I love how it turned out and am very pleased to have used a photo that was sitting neglected in a drawer.

IMG_6304

Layout #8

Working with this photo was a little trickier, the original photo was a 3×4 cut down into a smaller shape to fit into a tiny oval frame. How was I going to use this?

First, I scanned the photo and enlarged it to print onto a 4×6 glossy photo paper. Given that the photo was 28 yrs old, it came out reasonably well and worked well with the selected papers which had been cut to Janet’s sizes. I collected up some embellishments to use on the layout, with a heavy influence of pink and pretty.

I needed to trim down the photo and try and smooth out the edges, so I pulled out my very old school Creative Memories cutter. The oval cutter was a perfect size and easy option to use, however, because the original photo had been roughly cut I needed some way to cover the little bits of white which still showed. That’s when I had the brainwave to cut some oval frames to hide some areas of white. This worked in well with the CKC challenge #1-Frame It Up.

I splashed around some watercolour paint and stamped some flowers on my background. The background was made up using patterned paper pieces and two washi tapes.

Next, fun again making and adding the embellishments, and fixing the photo and frames into place. In Janet’s layout, she includes two photos, I substituted the journal card instead of a photo to balance the design. The embellishments and title were similar to the previous layout: Uniquely Creative dies cut/made with my Sizzix Big Shot, tags,  butterflies (Tim Holtz), enamel dots, die cut flowers (Tim Holtz), and for the title, I used American Crafts, Hardcover, Thickers.

Another, very pretty layout to pop in my daughter’s album.

IMG_6345

I have two more layouts to complete to finish this 4 for 4 series, both are also using old photos of my daughter. I hope to work on them this weekend and clean up my

RTS & CKC March 2019 – Layouts 3-6

Morning all,

I had a lovely day yesterday, the rain was slow and steady for most of the day, and I indulged myself watching my favourite scrap idols on YouTube and finishing off my challenge layouts. I enjoyed completing the Janet Madison,  RTS 4 for 4 layouts using some of my March Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit. I ended up with 6 layouts in total, as I didn’t make the cards. I used the scraps I had left to create two more layouts instead.

The first two layouts I made were quite simple using photos from my grandson’s fifth birthday party. I decided to finish off scrapping the other birthday event photos with the rest of the RTS 4 for 4 supplies.

Layout 3.(4for4 Series // Layout #3)

With layout 3,  I made a few changes to Janet’s original design. Something which Janet IMG_6217encourages in her videos, make it your own. I flipped how she had laid out the photos, putting two at the top and one photo at the bottom. The reason I did this was that my photos are of my grown, adult children and my husband going down the slides at the Little Monsters indoor fun park where the birthday party was celebrated. I wanted the last photo in the sequence to stand out and be noticed, where my husband nearly wipes out our youngest daughter!

All of us grownups, my children, myself, my husband and some of the parents attending the party had a fun and crazy time trying out the slides. We had been using them for about an hour before we noticed a sign at the top of the slides…No Adults on The Slides!

Oops! Did that stop us? Um, no, we were having way too much fun by then. I guess we regressed to our childhood and the manager did not stop us, well that’s our excuse.

IMG_6226

 

Layout 4. (4for4 Series // Layout #4)

One great thing I am finding with the RTS 4 for 4 series is that I am using up a lot of washi tape. I IMG_6230may finally get to the end of a roll. Layout four includes 4 photos, if you haven’t noticed, each of Janet’s layouts increases by one photo at a time.

For my layout, I used photo’s slightly larger (3×4) than Janet’s. It still worked fine but hid a bit more of the background papers.

I loved that this time I had a thin strip of rainbowed stripe paper to work from. The colours really work with my photos. Janet uses a few other materials for her horizontal strips, ribbon and paper strips, I stuck with my washi tape. Gotta use that stuff up!

You can see in Janet’s layout that she introduces some of the green, 5th paper sheet (check out her video for all the details). I had already eaten into my 5th sheet and had used it for matting photos, I had this odd shaped piece left. It wasn’t long enough to go across the page, so I cut it down into two strips and joined them together.

Once I have the background adhered to the cardstock, I lay out where I think everything else will go. When I’m happy with it I take a quick photo of it with my iPad before pulling it all off again. This helps me remember the layout placement and I get busy sticking everything into place.

The finished layout looks happy and bright, especially on that white cardstock, the colours pop!

IMG_6237

 

So, what do I have left? It is at this stage that Janet goes into a card making tutorial (4for4 Series // 4 Cards). Not being a card maker any longer, even though Janet makes some strong points on why we should be making our own, the cost of cards these days, etc., I decided to make some more layouts. Heres what I had left…

IMG_6240

and… of course, I had the rest of my March CKC kit to pull supplies from. I didn’t want to pull any other coloured pattern paper from the kit, but I had included some glitter cardstock to die cut some text/quotes with. Part of the CKC is that you forge, create some of your own embellishments, etc. For March, you needed to include some frames in the kit, something which I have a whole box of, but do you think I could find them to include them in my kit? Nope! This can be one of the downfalls of cleaning and sorting out your craft room, trying to find stuff. In my head, I can clearly see where the box used to sit on the shelf. Grrrr

Anyhow, I decided to make some frames using my gold glitter cardstock and some standard white cardstock. Like any dedicated artisan, I researched online for a DIY video and found a great one by Meg on her YouTube Litlle Hot Tamale channel.  The tutorial is called Diy Polaroid Embellishments – Build Your Stash #1.  Meg does a great job at sharing two different ways to make your own frames. I went with technique #2 but cut the frames with my Fiskars paper cutter and not scissors.

 

After cutting the frames, Meg shows you ways to decorate them. I loved the little fringed paper strips and thought that would work beautifully with my festive birthday photos.

IMG_6257

Layout 5.

So, layout five is made from the leftover scraps and features photos of my grandson going down the slide. The photos are not of great quality but they capture the excitement and energy of the moment. I cut the three top photos down to 3×3 and topped each with one of the homemade frames (adhered with foam tape).

 

IMG_6269

 

 

Layout 6.

This one is super simple, using up the scraps, some washi tape and a few scraps of white cardstock. I used the frame quote embellishment on this layout and a couple of the gold glitter square cutouts leftover from making the frames. I may embellish this further, it is a little too empty for my normally cluttered style. Janet would be asking where are the clusters? The visual triangle? It was late and I had lost my mojo.

IMG_6273

Next, I am going to have another go with Janet Madison’s, RTS 4 for 4 using up the rest of my March CKC kit. What I have left in my March CKC kit is a lot more pretty, flower prints, big and small and lots of pinks, yellow and soft greens. This RTS 4 for 4 will definitely be some girly layouts and I will try and get some mixed media happening on these layouts.

Happy Scrapping

Mix it up! RTS 4 for 4 & CKC March 2019

Hey everyone,

as some of you may already know, I am a big fan of RTS Scrapbooking. The amazing Janet Madison shares all her scrapbooking knowledge on her RTS Scrapbooking YouTube unnamedchannel. She is a wealth of knowledge and so generous with her time and skills. For a while, Janet has been making a series of videos called 4 for 4. The idea is that you use a set amount of papers (5), cut into a specified size, and then add in some alphas and embellishments to create 4 layouts and some cards. Janet talks you through the whole process step by step, through her videos. This month, I decided to give it a go. I hadn’t tried it out before, but have used similar systems to create mini albums (6×6 and 8×8) in the past. Using a system like this can really speed up your productivity and get a whole heap of layouts completed and into albums.

Layout 1.

First, you need to select your papers and cardstock, you need a selection of papers with a range of patterns. Janet talks you through this process and provides all the detailed instructions. She suggests the best patterns to use. I thought it would be fun to use my kit which I had put together for the March Counterfeit Kit Challenge.

A new Facebook group has recently been formed for the scrapbook fans of RTS. It is called love rts and you can access a PDF copy of the 4 for 4 instructions in the group. I printed this out and worked through the instructions while watching the RTS videos and scrapping my layouts.

Janet suggests selecting four alphas for your layout, two large and two small. I chose two glitter alphas to work in with the March CKC.

 

Also on the material list is washi tape, here is my selection. Once again I went with some glitz selecting three glitter washi tape and a gold metallic to link in with my CKC kit. Janet gives you lots of options to use instead of washi tape.

IMG_6184

Cutting up the papers is quite simple, though I would suggest that you watch Janet’s video a few times before starting. You do need to think about which direction you want your patterns to run, this is especially important if you use a paper which has text.

 

Next, I built up the background following Janet’s recommendations. I started with white cardstock and then changed my mind using green instead. I mounted my photo and begun adding the titles, something I usually do last.

I was short on embellishment in my CKC kit and decided to make some as it was the Forgery on the 4th challenge day. I used some stamps and ink I had included in my kit.

 

After adding the homemade embellishments, some enamel dots, washi tape and a few other bits and bobs, it was finished. Thanks, Janet 🙂

IMG_6207

Happy with the first ‘4 for 4’ RTS layout, I moved onto number two. Once again following Janet’s directions, watching her video and including some handmade embellishments.

Layout 2.

IMG_6213

Two more to go 🙂

I have enjoyed the process and may even use the 4 for 4 system with a different set of papers. A great way to get layouts completed quickly and as simply as you like. Janet encourages you to take the process and make it your own, perhaps I will add a little mixed media next time. The skies the limit…oh, the places you can go with Janet’s guidance!

Fields of Gold…Faking it!

Hi all 🙂

A couple of weeks ago, one of my favourite YouTube bloggers, Janet from RTS Scrapbooking, shared a video on how to make your own Pink Fresh Studio Indigo Hills collection. Janet is all about using up your supplies rather than going out and buying more. Most of us have been drooling over the Pink Fresh Studio Indigo Hills collection but if you have set yourself a challenge to not spend and use up your stash, then Janet has the answer to substituting papers, building a similar colour and feel collection.

After watching her video, I got excited and decided to give it a go. I made my own kit based upon similar colours/theme and even got messy making some watercolour papers.IMG_3989

IMG_4012

As you can see, I didn’t have any florals in the right colour range. Unlike Janet, I don’t use a lot of florals in my scrapping. I did have a black & white floral page which I decided to paint with watercolour to bring it into the correct colour range. This turned out really well and will definitely add more floral zing to my collection.

I decided that I would also incorporate some stamps and inks to create more floral papers and embellishments. With my kit organised, I started my first layout using photos taken of my street. IMG_3873It is Spring here and all the flowers are blooming, being rural this also means the paddocks are being swamped with colour. Yellow fields of daisies are popping up everywhere.

I started off by creating my background paper, I wanted to create a similar paper to one of the lovely Pink Fresh papers which have indigo florals on the corners. The patterned paper I chose to use has a soft, shell pink floral print and two butterflies in the top corner. I flipped the page, as I wanted the butterflies in the bottom, right corner. I went through my stamps and found a rose to use as my stamped flower stem image. I used Tim Holtz’s ‘Faded Jeans’distress ink, as it has a lovely dusty blue/indigo tone. After a good rummage through my stamp drawers, I found a very old, leaf spray stamp which I made about 15yrs ago from kids fun foam. It printed really well and achieved the look I was after.

Next, I went on to make some daisy head embellishments to attach to my plant stems. I decided to use a more realistic daisy stamp and fussy cut them out.

Then, choosing papers from my fake kit, I decided to pick up the colours in the photos and selected an apricot floral, a yellow stripe, a shell pink and the black and white floral. I ended up not using the shell pink or the black and white.

IMG_4113

I put down some layers under the photos and then got busy adding more stamped images, some watercolour splatter in indigo and metallic shell pink. Then, I topped it off with layers of fussy cut, stamped daisies and some die cut leaf stalks in navy and apricot. The title finished off the layout. I love how this came together using both old and new products. I can’t wait to get started on the next layout using my homemade kit. Thank you, Janet, from RTS Scrapbooking for your inspiration.

Counterfeit Kit Challenge – September

CKblinkie (2)Hello Scrappers, I am excited to be joining in with the September Counterfeit Kit Challenge. My inspiration came from my favourite YouTube blogger, Janet Madison from  RTS Scrapbooking (Record The Story). Janet is a dedicated scrapper determined to use up her inventory. She kindly shares how she creates kits, makes embellishments and organises her supplies.

This month’s Counterfeit Kit is based upon a Fall/Autumn theme and proves a real challenge for those of us South of the equator. The kit features many elements which are foreign to those located in Australia, such as autumn pumpkins, racoons, bears and pumpkin pie! For us Aussies, Autumn is quite green due to our non-deciduous native trees, unless you live in an area which has been planted with deciduous foliage or have a husband like mine who has an obsession with Japanese Maples.

This months kit has been borrowed from Noel Mignon, called the “Apple Crisp Classic Kit”. You can find it here at https://www.noelmignon.com/products/apple-crisp-kit.

DSC_0287_edited-1_1024x1024

The challenge for me, when trying to put my own kit together was finding papers to substitute some of the traditional fall elements. I also don’t use many orange and yellow papers/embellishments in my daily scrapping. Many of the papers I found were B side papers, designs which I hadn’t purchased the patterned paper for. I also had problems finding any dark wood grain paper, as I love wood grain and have been making a lot of male layouts this year. My supplies are now low, I only had two dark woodgrain papers, both have butterflies featured in the corners. So, what did I find?

First up, these are my check and stripe substitutes…

2018-09-02 16.00.00

Then, woodgrain papers…

2018-09-02 15.59.19

Next, flowers and foliage…

2018-09-02 16.02.15

For pumpkin papers…spots/circles!

2018-09-02 16.03.06

And, mason jars/autumn cooking…

2018-09-02 16.04.05

Embellishments proved a little easier, I found many Kaisercraft elements from various kits which I could use. I decided to substitute the word die-cuts for actual dies and will cut words/elements as needed.2018-09-02 15.50.12 My substitute for the Tim Holtz distress stain is two Heidi Swapp shines in gold and mustard. I haven’t decided on which stamps to use but will most likely use some leaf and foliage stamps. The bows I will make out of scraps from the kit and I will turn some of my embellishment die-cuts into chipboard elements. My choice in washi tape is a lovely metallic and white diagonal stripe for some added bling. I may also add some wood veneers and some ribbon. 2018-09-02 16.16.04

My choice of alphas for titles is a mix of stickers and rub-ons. I have a packet of the foam gold Thickers used in the original kit and decided to mix in some burnt orange glitter stickers and chocolate brown rub ons. 2018-09-02 16.06.43

So, what might I make from this huge kit? I’m thinking about doing a range of layouts, some will be autumn themed, some will be cooking and a few will be based on family events, like picnics. I can’t wait to see what everyone else does.

 

 

2018-09-02 16.19.362018-09-02 16.19.202018-09-02 17.37.35

Some of the papers and embellishments came from the following paper pads and collections…

 

I have a few sheets which are in the maybe pile, I may or may not use them. There is a couple of mushroom papers, one in gold and one in black and white. I thought perhaps I could colour the images to bring them into the same colour palette as the kit. I also have a vellum which has a fall/autumn print which may be useful, a white and gold floral print and a wooden drawer print which could be used. 2018-09-02 16.05.06

I will share what I create as I work through the kit and mini-challenges. If you would like to see what other scrappers have gathered together for their kits make sure you follow the hop blog list on Counterfeit Kit blog.
