It is challenge time over on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog. Our hostess for the month, Lisa was inspired by the large sentiment elements that are in the kit, especially the Vicki Boutin die cuts. So that lead straight into the second challenge…. go big with your title. Here is a peek at the entire inspiration kit again. See those phrase elements?
It was really easy for me to go big with my title. I’ve done it before and like the effect. The real challenge this time? I didn’t include many of the phrase elements into my kit! I build my kit around the inspiration of Vicki Boutin and Jen Hadfield and I had phrase’s from Jen. But I was really looking for the Vicki sized title pieces. So I did something I don’t normally do, I went and pulled more stuff for my kit. I grabbed more of the Fernwood collection and ended up pulling the puffy phrase sticker sheet to add to this kit/layout.
It feels a little like “cheating”, but you know what? What rule of the universe says I can’t grab something else to add in? There are no rules! So I got over it and did what I felt was right for this layout!
If you want to see the entire process, including a few tips on working with prhase stickers and some small design tips, you can see it all in action in this video.
I hope you can check out the other designers takes on this challenge! Don’t forget to show off your stuff over on the CKC Facebook group, or tag us on Instagram @counterfeitkitchallenge or use #counterfeitkitchallenge. We love to see your work!
