Putting my Counterfeit Kit to good use.

My first LO with my counterfeit kit was for a UKS weekly challenge that fitted with things I already had in my kit - the photos, the colour, the theme - yeeha!

I had a blitz last week on a set of photos from 1994 which I've wanted to scrap for ages, but didn't want to spend too much time on.  I compromised with two LOs, one heavily journalled, then a multi photo page protector filled with 8 photos and two decorated title cards to match the LOs opposite them.  Really pleased and feeling smug that I have actually scrapped a whole set of photos.



I am a random scrapper, thus most projects are 'in transit'!  These are my main LOs, one totally from the kit, one with borrowed bits from my stash, and the Boardwalk Studio Calico kit.  I did use stamps on my LO, as well as a misted journalling block - big adventure for me!

J'adore la plague! My favorite French word. Your layout is gorgeous. Those blues are so calming.

Beautiful! I really like the idea of mixing up LOs with multi photo pockets as I have some I haven't used yet - I need to get organised!

These are all great - you have a way of adding just enough embellishment to each page - nice!

Super pages - love the repeated circles of stamping and the border on La Plage especially.

And I "borrow" from my stash all the time - as long as I use stuff up rather than stroke it I'm happy!
