Joy Love Peace Christmas card for a Sketch N Scrap challenge

Welcome to the 2nd card sketch of November over at Sketch N Scrap challenge blog. A fantastic sketch from Lori

My creation
Using my counterfeit kit Holiday Festivities I used the music paper and scraps for my card and added some cardstock stickers and sequin stars to finish it off :)

Victorian Christmas LO for Counterfeit Kit challenge

 Good morning and welcome :) Here's the 2nd challenge of the month over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog. Lisa is the host this month and her challenge is:

This is my birthday month and of course, the festivities of Christmas are just around the corner which is certainly building up a certain amount of "anticipation"! 

What are you excited for? What products have you been waiting impatiently to use or which projects are you itching to get started on? What events on the calendar are you looking forward to? What parts of the festive season are you wanting to start? There are so many ways to interpret this prompt! 

Challenge #2 - Use the idea of "sweet anticipation" on your page or project today!

This time of the year I always anticipate our annual Victorian Christmas I was so excited about this year's that I went over to get tickets 2 weeks too soon! My kit of Christmas supplies is perfect to scrap this year's event. Using my kit Holiday Festivities this is my 1st layout created from the kit :) The event takes place today so over the holiday there will be a few more layouts created from today's event.

 Thank you for stopping by today and seeing what I'm up to in my little corner of the world. I hope you join us over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog for this fun challenge.

CKC - November 2023 Kit Reveal - Holiday Festivities

Good Morning and welcome to a new month and a new inspiration kit to counterfeit! November is bringing in colder weather already! Not ready for 30 degree temps for sure. Lisa has taken up the duties to host this month and she chose a wonderful kit for us to counterfeit :) but 1st you should have arrived here from Tara's blog. We are thrilled to have Silvia Jorke as this month's Guest Designer you can find her post on instagram.

Lisa is our host and she says:

Now, onto the inspiration kit... 

I had a hard time finding a kit that really spoke to me for this pre-Christmas… autumn-ish/spring-ish (depending on where you are in the world)… entering Advent-time… coming up to winter… end-of-year time…. but in the end went for a kit that is quite festive.  

However, I really believe that it can be changed up to anything you want it to be 🙂.  

There are bright colours and interesting patterns included as well as a good number of embellishments to inspire. 

I hope you like it as much as I do and are excited to enter the festive time of year in a gentle way or take it in a different direction – there’s a lot going on at this time of year and this kit can be adapted for whatever you need! 

The Hip Kit Club November 2022 main kit 


 Here's my kit for October:

Holiday Festivities

It's actually a smaller kit for me, I'll be creating from the pictures of my annual Victorian Christmas day in November so thinking this kit should work out well for most of those pictures.

The papers, I chose mainly from my Pinkfresh Studio stash for this kit. The colors and icons have some similiarties.

I brought all my Christmas flair to play with.
And a mixed media kit to have some fun with too. I did add a Ruby Red glitter paste to this mix after the picture was taken. I am the end of the hop, I hope you will join us this month.

Don't miss a stop on the hop!

Murray Reynolds Falls LO for Sketch N Scrap challenge

Good Morning and welcome. Here we are in the middle of October, the weather was rainy and cold yesterday, Fall is definitely here.
We got a fun challenge over at Sketch N Scrap for the day. This sketch was created by Lori 
 
It's a fantastic sketch, the LOAD prompt of the day was to use green so a waterfalls layout it was.
This is the last waterfalls in the area I was in and was heading back to where the waters meet. Looks like I got about 14 more sets of photos for this particular day to call the album finished :) I enjoyed finding the papers to create this layout from my color drawer other than a couple of scraps from my current counterfeit kit. I also used some embellishments from my kit and ephemera from 49&Market Naturalist collection.

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I created and can't wait to see what you create from this cool sketch over at Sketch N Scrap blog.

Loved This LO for Counterfeit Kit challenge

 Good morning and welcome :) Here's the 1st challenge of the month over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog.

  Challenge #1 - Let's Get Sketchy! Leslie has challenged us to use this sketch. She says:

 Our inspiration kit club had their own sketch:

Check out their reveal post for inspiring creative takes on the sketch. 

This is my take on the sketch:


 I used all my pinks in my kit for this sketch and no stitching, but doodling the circle instead. The crop I attend in July, Kris showed off a bit of her town to Jennifer and I the last day while we were waiting for the store to open. So got to see a cool coffee shop and these cool murals too.

Thank you for stopping by today and seeing what I'm up to in my little corner of the world. I hope you join us over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog for this fun challenge.

CKC - October 2023 Kit Reveal - Blue Skies, Fall Butterflies

 Good Morning and welcome to a new month and a new inspiration kit to counterfeit! October brings LOAD so lots of scrapping and the beauty of Fall is starting to arrive. Leslie has taken up the duties to host this month and she chose a wonderful kit for us to counterfeit :) but 1st you should have arrived here from Tara's blog. We are thrilled to have Laurie Crouse Winiarski as this month's Guest Designer you can find her post on our community facebook page.

 Now for the inspiration kit reveal! I normally prefer not to chose an older kit, but I wanted to use another kit site than the usual plus a color scheme that will work for both ends of the globe in October :-)  Spring might take you lighter & brighter and Fall might shade the peachy/orange to a slightly deeper red on some of your selections. You can trade the flowers for leaves or butterflies for mushrooms!

 Here's my kit for October:

Blue Skies, Fall Butterflies

The chosen kit was a pretty one and surprised that is one collection I never bought. I mix matched papers from paper pads and collections to come up with the kit I have. Using the colors, butterflies, watercolor florals to draw from to put together my kit.
 
My paper choices there are 25 papers in my kit. Lots of florals as I got lots of pictures of summer flowers to still scrap and a few that will work with some Fall layouts too.
I brought in a few mixed media supplies in similiar colors to use and some of the diecuts I want to use too
More flowers, glitter tape and some flair too
Chipboard, Prima butterflies, and some pink flowers too
Some fun stuff from my February embellishment box from Some Assembly Required that worked out perfect with this kit
The chosen Laser cuts package and ephemera package too
To finish it off with some word chipboard, some small alphas and some Bubbles&Baubles.
I'm excited to dig in and get playing with this kit, but first I need to see what the other girls have pulled together and a good place to start is over at Brandi's insta  I'm excited to see how the inspiration moved her for her kit :) and if you get lost here is the full list
