January has been a wonderful month for me and my counterfeit kit. I completed a total of six layouts with this kit! My kit, Coming Home, is based on the new UBUD collection from Kaisercraft, our inspiration kit for January.
My kit, seen here, was full of soft, organic colors and patterns, mixed with textures like woodgrain and vellum.
The last three layouts were all created using sketches from the Ready, Sketch, Go class.
The first sketch I used allowed for a large amount of journaling, so I told the story of a trip my family and I took over this past Thanksgiving. On Friday, we drove about four hours to visit my sister and her family. This sketch was perfect for documenting this longer story.
The layout Happy Together was one with which I had the most trouble creating. The sketch was pretty straight forward, but I was getting close to using up all the patterned paper in my kit. The patterned paper that I used as the background seemed so plain–I ended up adding the strips of blue patterned paper at the top and bottom to give the page more structure. After finishing the page, I was very pleased with it!
On the page Right Now, I documented my children as they are at this moment in time. I have done this type of page before–I love to just capture a snapshot of their lives at different times. It is a simple page, but with a lot of journaling.
I loved working with this kit, Coming Home, this month, especially knowing that I put a small dent in my large stash!
Now go create!
