Yay! August at CKC

Posted on

Welcome to the August reveal blog hop at Counterfeit Kit Challenge! You should have landed here from Margie’s blog. If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop, just click back over to the CKC blog.

It’s August already! I can’t believe how fast this summer is flying by for me. This summer has been especially busy in that I am getting ready to send my oldest off to college. I am feeling both happy and sad. Watching your child go off into the world for the first time is not easy! But I know that he is ready and will have a great time at school.

So I was glad to see our inspiration kit full of bright, happy colors and fun embellishments! This month’s kit, chosen by Master Forger Stephanie, is the July 2017 kit from Gossamer Blue. This kit has navy blue, green, yellow–all colors that I love. I am especially smitten with the phrase stickers and tags!

I began my kit with the navy blue patterned paper then added the floral with navy accents as my base pieces. I chose a few more papers in coordinating colors and patterns.

As for embellishments, I added puffy letter stickers in navy, two tags, and a sticker book all inspired by the products in the kit.

As I was going through my stash, I found the small green letter stickers, journaling cards, and library pockets that all seemed to coordinate well with my kit. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with those library pockets yet. Maybe take them apart and use them as layers? Or tuck in small photographs or journaling?

I do know that I am loving this kit–which I am calling Yay!–and that this collection will be perfect for documenting the changes coming in August. Make sure to check back later this month–I’ll have some layouts posted that I created with this kit.
