So in full disclosure here, I had browsed the Challenge over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge a while ago, and I failed to fully read instructions, and I thought you had to create layouts with a kit you bought from them ... boy was I wrong! That's not what this awesome blog is about at all!
Quick run down - they give you inspiration from a kit club, and you put together your own kit with your stash! Now THAT sounds like something right up my cheap-old-booty's alley!
So this month was apparently different due to not having papers in the inspiration kit, but I know no different, so here goes:
This is my kit - let's call it Snappy Pack!
This is the inspiration kit from Ali Edwards:
I got inspiration from the colors - green, gray, orange; the scripts/handlettering; and from the photography/camera theme.
I've created a nice, manly layout for my husband's birthday this past year with my counterfeit kit.
And here's a detail. I really ended up loving the title. I was thrifty and used the paper tag from the Studio Calico background paper for the stamped portion of the title - I love how it coordinates!
You can find all the products tagged over on Instagram @scrappinhappy.
On another note, February was a very lucky month for little old me, so I'm going to brag a bit.
My layout of my son at the beach won the monthly challenge at Rochelle Spear's blog!
Then, today, they announced winners over at Lasting Memories, and my layout of newborn Lachlan got a Top 3 mention!
Yay for adding more buttons to my side bar!
Thank you for looking - Hope you have a crafty weekend!
