Fast February | Part II

The final two layouts I made with this kit—Bee-lightful–and the sketch are both double-page spreads.

For this page, I combined my chosen sketch with a sketch from Citrus Twist Kits that included two square photos that I thought would complement my sketch. I liked the clean lines of the design, which would go well with the simplicity of the original sketch.

The photographs on this page are from a recent walk I took with my kids in our woods. I am always amazed by the beauty of the forest even in the dead of winter!

Finally, I took the sketch and paired it with a pocket page.

I had several Instagram photos on my phone that simply showed what our life has been like over the past few months. Using the sketch and a pocket page, I was able to get all of these pictures in a spread quickly and easily.

This kit and sketch were “bee-lightful” to work with! I am looking forward to another kit this month. I hope to do more scrapping during March!

Now go create!


A Walk in the Woods

Posted on

At the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog this month we are celebrating November with challenges related to colder weather. The second challenge gets inspiration from walking in the woods in the crisp air to see all of the beautiful colors of the leaves.

Challenge #2: In the fall, we often take long walks in the woods to enjoy the crisp air and turning of the leaves. For this challenge, let the forest be your inspiration. Create a project inspired by the woods. For ideas, check out this Pinterest board.

I am lucky enough to live on a farm with lots wooded acres. I take walks through the woods in the fall when the air is cooler and the leaves are bright orange and yellow. On this page, I have documented some of the little details of a recent walk through our woods.

The colors in my photographs are somewhat muted, so I felt good about using the bright patterned paper down at the bottom of my page. I also used a woodgrain pattern to reinforce the woodland theme of the page.

Make sure to check out the projects designed by other members of the team for this challenge on the blog. And let us see your woodland-inspired work–link your project to our monthly link-up page.

Now go create!
