Good Morning and welcome to the 1st challenge over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog and our month's host is Tracey

Tracey has challenged us with: 

The first challenge of the month is something a little different...... we want to challenge you to create a layout with your kit and a title of our choice! Simply pick a title from this list and use it as your inspiration:

* Destination Unknown
* The Journey is the Destination
* Life isn't always Rainbows and Unicorns
* Spring has Sprung
* You Colour My World
* You've Come so Far
* Perfectly Imperfect
* Ordinary Moments
A great title on your layout can help to make a story great or it can tell a story on it's own.
 
I used Spring Has Sprung as my title for this layout

 My kit Simply Delightful was perfect with it's Spring theme to do a Spring flower/blossom layout.
I used a sketch over at Paper Issues to help me create my layout.

CKC - October 2021 Kit Reveal - Simply Delightful

 Good Morning, Wow Wow Wow we're in October! Where the heck did September go! The end of the harvest season begins around the Campbell house time to get everything canned up, freezed up or put in the cellar for the winter. But even with this hectic schedule I still try to fit time in to scrap. First you should have arrived here from Misty's blog  I'm excited to see what she has put together this month. so with that said lets' look at what our Hostess Tracey has decide will be our inspiration this month:

The Kit I have picked for October is the May Hip Kit Club kit - it is full of beautiful bright spring colours. There are tags, labels, stickers and fun ephemera die cuts that are all singing out to be forged and scrapped. 

May Main Hip Kit Club

In Tracey's area of the world they are heading into Spring as we are heading into Fall, as I'm a lover of Spring I had an easy time pulling my kit together from this Inspiration especially since I had the Pinkfresh Studio Keeping it Real collection. Welcome to our Guest Forger this month Machelle Welling. 

Here is the kit I put together:

 Simply Delightful

From what I pulled from the inspiration: Colors: Pinks, Teals, Yellow, Salmon/Coral, Purple. Map, Florals, Butterflies, Dots and Swirls, Checks, Bold Stripes, and lots of Words. Checked all those off well with this kit :) I've found rummaging through my paper pads that I do like butterflies as I have lots of paper with them so a few choices there in the kit.

My choice of papers for this month and with it being a LOAD month should not have a problem getting through this kit :)


I pulled in the Keeping it Real embellishments as well as some CTMH sticker sheets, Lots of stickers: Cardstock, Foil, sticker book. Puffies and Word stickers. Die cuts, Sequins and Enamel dots too. Plenty of things to choose from for my pages

Some words and Alphas to help with titling my layouts :)
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 Tracey's blog  I'm excited to see how the inspiration moved her for her kit :) and if you get lost here is the full list

5 Star Meal LO

I was having fun with my current counterfeit kit: Great Outdoors and with this fun sketch from Sketch N Scrap 

I made this layout of us out and about Jan. 18 of this year. Stopping for a break to get a bit to eat :)

Stopping at one of our favorite restaurants in Shamokin Dam. I will normally get the same meal as I love it so much :) Dave always changes it up each time we go :) I had fun pulling different elements from my kit and the stars are what is left of a cut file I received.

Old RTU LO for a Counterfeit Kit challenge

Good Morning and welcome :) Happy Sunday to you :) I've been enjoying playing with my kit this month.

Today is the 1st challenge over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog and our month's host is me! I challenged everyone.

Get Moving!
 
My love for antique tractors is producing this challenge! What do we usually see in the fall other that falling leaves is hay wagon rides and such, well they are usually pulled by a tractor so your challenge is to make a layout about any type of transportation: tractor, car, bike, plane, ect.
Today, use Transportation for your creation!
 
Here is what I created:
I had fun creating this layout using my kit, found this fun crackle look paper in my kit for my background. Using a cutfile that I sprayed with Tea color shine for some of the bits on the circle pieces on the layout. I used this sketch from Christy's Beautiful Life series 8 Day 9 sketch for my inspiration:
Switching up the placement of the photos and following along with the challenge over at Scraptember I used stickers on my layout using anything that didn't reference fall. I like the way it turned out :)

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 - September 2021 Kit Reveal - Great Outdoors

 September is here! The end of Summer and the beginning of Fall fastly approaches us here in the States. Cooler weather will be nice as this Summer was a bit hot at times :) I look forward to life settling down abit from traveling from Tractor show to Tractor show and maybe get my scrap on! Not done to much of that this past month. 

We got a fun one this month for our Counterfeit Kit challenge. First you should have arrived here from Misty's blog  I'm excited to see what she has put together this month. Tori Gaines is our guest designer this month , excited to see what she put together too.As I'm the host this month for Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog this is my choice of inspiration for kit making this month:

I'm not much into buying kits because I like to make them out of my stash, but recently joined in with (Not) Just for Boys Scrapbooking Kit Club. What I like about their kits is it's not all florally and I get some fun bits and pieces too. So I decided to use one of their older kits for this month's challenge. I'm focusing on their Main Kit there are some add ons to if you want to use any of it
Main Kit:
{Not} Just for Boys Scrapbooking Kit Club - September 2020 Main Kit - Vivid

It's got that Fall vibe right now happening here in the States, but there is also all the outdoors looks of the kit too that is perfect for some gardening, tractor shows and masculine layouts.


I went right to those plaids, wood grain and the colors for my kit inspiration

Great Outdoors

My full kit includes ribbons, added doilies too for any feminine layouts, ephemera packs from Simple Stories Fall Farmhouse which I included the 6X8 paper pad and the sticker book, some buttons I got from (Not) Just for Boys Scrapbooking Kit Club also the frames came from a recent kit too. Grabbed some neutral gems and dots for the little final touches, I may add some sequins to the kit yet. The papers I chose for this month:

They had a stamps with words in their kit I added the word paper to mimic those stamps, lots of fall vibes in this kit with the addition of some fun plaids too.Here's some close ups of the kit




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 Tracey's blog  I'm excited to see how the inspiration moved her for her kit :) and if you get lost here is the full list

Wanderlust lo for CKC challenge #2

 Good Morning and welcome :) The days are just flying by! Loving Summer this year the weather can be a bit humid but it hasn't been to bad. 

Today is the 2nd challenge over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog and our month's host Lisa has challenged us:

Sketch It Up!


We all love a good sketch and I found a cracker for us today. This is a BasicGrey (insert longing sigh here) sketch from way back in 2012 (see it at their blog here ). It's a double spread but feel free to use it complete or just one of the pages - it features some chevrons which reminded me of the photo corners in the HS sticker book from the kit and I really think it can be reinterpreted to reflect today's scrappy style if that's the way you want to go! 😉 

One, two, three... sketch!

 

BasicGrey sketch can be found on their blog here

 This is the layout I created for this sketch:

I had fun creating the layout using my kit: Unplug. Using a few scraps from the layout I did the other day that this one goes with as it's the pictures I took from the helicopter ride. I used the cloud paper that was in my kit along with the chevrons that were in the sticker book, sequins, diecut word phrase and sticker word phrases too. Love the cutfile title against the picture and the white cardstock, something I don't do to often using cardstock for my background but it worked here with the variety of pattern papers that were used. 

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.

Be Happy LO for Sketch n Scrap challenge

Good Morning and welcome :) August is just flying by! I'll be at a tractor show when this posts, I hope your having a fantastic weekend too.  Now on to the Sketch N Scrap challenge for the day. A wonderful sketch from Stacy to play with today.

A fun sketch indeed lots of elements to play with here
For my background mat I used a cut file, been playing with them this month and this file I thought was perfect to play along with this sketch and with these photos :) Anyone that knows me knows I'm afraid of heights so I've been working to try to get over that and when I seen the helicopter rides being offered at this show the weekend of my Birthday I knew I had to try it! A bucket item checked off and such an awesome thrill too.

Layout details I used my current counterfeit kit: Unplug. 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.

CKC - July 2021 Kit Reveal - UnPlug

 Hello! Happy August! Wow where did July go..... it was a blur for me :) We got really cute inspiration this month for our Counterfeit Kit challenge. First you should have arrived here from Misty's blog  I'm excied to see what she has put together this month. 

 Lisa is our host this month and welcome Sarah back as our Guest Designer in August. She has such an eye-catching individual style and her layouts never fail to make me smile.

This month Lisa went local and picked out the gorgeously luscious-feeling kit by a German scrapbook shop - Dani Peuss. She selected their May 2021 kit which is full of Heidi Swapp along with Maggie Holmes and American Crafts papers. 

As I looked more into the kit and the add-on paper kit I was like yes! I have some of these papers in my stash... I actually have 4 pieces of the same paper and the sticker book from (Not) Just for Boys Kit Club June kit.

So this is the base of my kit building. Using the color scheme and the feel of the papers this is what I put together.

Unplug

Here are all the papers including some scraps and since it's Heidi Swapp, I added the Honey & Spice 6x6 paper pad to it:

The papers reminded me of Summer as a kid, we went to Wildwood, NJ quite often so added alot of summery breezy feeling to the kit with some ice cream cone paper for some added sweetness.
My alphas, I'd like to make a dent in these ones wit just a few letters left so some fun creative words

Close up of the extras in the kit. Stamps, diecuts, washi, sequins and enamel dots, wood veneer, acrylic pieces, tags, puffy stars and a fun new Nuvo mist for me. Gonna be fun to see what that mist does. 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 Tara's blog  I'm excited to see how the inspiration moved her for her kit :) and if you get lost here is the full list 

Of course we have a reveal hop this month:

28 Years lo for CKC challenge #2

 Good Morning and welcome :) Mid July and you can tell, been a hot summer so far and I'm loving it! Less humid would be nice but I'm okay with it too :) beats that white stuff that flies around in the winter time :) 

Today is the 2nd challenge over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog and our month's host Lisa has challenged us:

And onto today's challenge...

Buenos Dias!

Get creative with a foreign language!  

Whatever your main/native language is at home, use a foreign word or expression on your page today.

  Link it to a story about a holiday spent abroad or even a foreign word you just love because of how it sounds or the literal translation.


I choose to use some french words on my layout for the mood of the day and used the words in each of my clusters. I finished off a package of Dear Lizzy puffy stickers when making the layout using the words, the & and the hot air balloon. After looking up the meanings of each word I thought this set of photos were the best use for the words :) Happy Anniversary to us! I enjoyed using lots of the yellow that was in my kit: Summer Fun and I still got lots of this kit to play with yet this month and probably next month yet :)

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.

Purple Asparagus LO for Sketch n Scrap challenge

  Good Morning and welcome :) The middle of July already! We'll be off on vacation next week hopefully that doesn't go nearly as fast! lol. Now on to the Sketch N Scrap challenge for the day. A wonderful sketch from Lisa to play with today.

This is what I created with it:

 
 Used papers from my May counterfeit kit: What's Cooking for this layout :) The background paper was a specific choice as it had asparagus bundles on it and who doesn't love an old Basic Grey paper :) I backed my photos with a purple cardstock and then used browns for the rest of the layout. It was great to feature this from the garden this year and to see it without the green asparagus too.
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.

CKC - July 2021 Kit Reveal - Summer Fun

 Good morning and welcome :) after and eventful night of no power and can now get my blog post done :) lol teaches me not to procrastinate so much! July, wow did June go by quick. So I'm ready to scrap and my kit proves it :) So lets see what the inspiration is 1st. You should have arrived here from Misty's blog I'm excited to see what she has curated being her 1st kit as a master forger! Let's welcome our newest forgers too!

Lisa is our host this month and this is the kit she chose for us to be inspired by. Welcome to Our Guest Designer this month, the delightful Antonia.

This month, I was excited to pick our inspiration from a kit club that's been around for a long time and yet, we've never picked it before. I've always been a big admirer of the products and kits that Kelly Purkey has curated over the years and she recently rebranded and renamed her business to the totally apt "Paper Person" - love it!

I've picked out the April 2021 New Episode kit and I think you are going to love it!

It includes products from the Buenos Dias collection by new American Crafts designer Obed Marshall which is so pretty and summery and full of sunny vibes, not to mention great Spanish expressions. 

The kit itself focuses on TV viewing or activities/hobbies which I think is an interesting twist for us all and could be a focus for your kit or embellishments. But it really doesn't need to be as the papers, colours and patterns are universal enough to take in any direction you like! 

Here's the link and the contents: https://paperperson.shop/products/april-2021-kit-new-episode


Out of this kit my 1st thought and what I was drawn to was the TV! Hey I knew I had a 6x6 paper pad that had TVs in it so that is where my kit began

So most of my color choices came from this paper pad, but with the inspirational kit and the clean lines Pinkfresh Studio came to mind and I knew my kit would have lots of that in it

Summer Fun

 

papers:

Alphas and Stamps
Cut files

and chipboard to finish it off! Now 2 of those spots in the container has non summer stuff :) Yes Christmas in July I'll be doing too :)  Yes it's a bit on the bigger size but got lots of new prints to scrap too. Thanks for stopping by today and your next stop is Tara's blog and she usually has a large kit too so I'm excited to see how the inspiration moved her for her kit :) and if you get lost here is the full list 


Here's the full hop list so that you don't miss any of the inspiration:
