More Kit Pages - Summer Vacation Pages

I mentioned yesterday that there may be some new eyes here in the audience. So in case any of you haven't heard, the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog is looking for new Master Forgers

If you're interested in learning more, click here to see the announcement.  It is a lot of fun, and I'm looking forward to the inspiration that comes when new people, new projects and new ideas are added to the team!

Today I have more pages made with this month's Counterfeit Kit.  These are all from our summer trip to the Finger Lakes in New York:

I mentioned yesterday that I ran out of paper for my kit this month.  So I added in some scraps from previous kits to do this quick page. I made the "hit the road" tag with an unuse stamp I have had forever. Glad I thought to finally use it!
The end of my one sheet of paper that inspired my kit this month - that striped paper is an older American Crafts paper, and I love how it has so many colors I wouldn't normally tie together.  That allowed me to get away with pink buttons, red hearts, yellow/green enamel dots and turquoise cardstock. I think :). It's a real hodge podge of colors, not my usual style, but I loved this picture (I know it doesn't look like much here - I cut out a friends face and it looks pretty dark, but the actual picture is much nicer), and didn't need much journaling.
Another page that didn't need much journaling. Used some scraps from my kit for the flags and added in the Amy Tangerine stuff like I mentioned yesterday. When I was done with the page, I didn't like all that wide-open black space on the page. Since it was a Coordinations cardstock with a pink core, I decided I should let some pink show through. So I scored random lines around the page from the back and then lightly sanded the lines to let the pink appear.  It's easier to see the pink in person. I liked that it just sort of filled the space without having to add more papers or embellishments.
That's it for today.  I have several more pages to show this week, so stay tuned!


  1. Wonderful layouts, but I really love what you did to the last layout to fill the open space. That is a fantastic idea!

  2. Love what you did with the coredinations "white" space - lovely pages.
