It is challenge time over on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog. Our hostess for the month, Lisa was inspired by all the harvest festivals that incorporate gratitude. So that is our theme this time: Gratitude stories! First off, let’s remember how all our kits started off with an inspiration image. That was offered by a German company called Scrapbook Werkstatt, but it has since been taken down. But we always try to give credit where credit is due!
If you haven’t seen my kit build yet, head over to check that out.
With kit stuff out of the way, back to the challenge… Challenge accepted, with a bit of a twist. I am scrapping Christmas photos with more of a Thanksgiving/Fall color vibe. But since this story is very homey and has to do with food, it all works for me!
This layout included some hidden journaling behind that little “living room scene” (center photo above). The red banner is stapled to a small card to pull out for the words. The other things about this embellishment cluster that I was a little too pleased about. See that butterfly button? In my little scene, the green pattern paper is “wall paper” on the “wall” behind that armchair, and that button is “art” hanging on that wall! It is an embellishment with a larger purpose.
So if you want to hear more about my goofy thinking here is the full process 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!
Until next time, have an artful day.
