August CKC Challenge 2 layout (Better late than never, right?)

I forgot to share this layout that I made with last month’s Counterfeit Kit.

I promise I ACTUALLY made it last month!  No, honestly, I really did!  This is last month's inspiration kit and a bit about how CKC works!

I was determined to try using the citrus paper and it might even work for Challenge 2 in August which is “What is Summer to You”

Being hot and uncomfortable.  Nothing says hot and uncomfortable like having to make jam in 40°C heat (104°F).  YUCK! Sweat was pouring down my face and pooling in my glasses.  I wish I was joking!  I had a whopping case of Dave's Syndrome. 😓😓😓

I struggled with that paper for a long time despite really loving the style of the illustration.   I decide to do a close scraplift of this layout from Shimelle.

I COULD HAVE actually scraplifted each and every piece on that layout since I had all the supplies, but butterflies and rainbows were more suited to Shimelle’s story than mine.  I could be wrong, but she may have scrapped this on video in her behind the scenes class if you've taken that or want to.

Since my jam was nectarine (with some peach and apricot thrown in I’m pretty sure) I decided to embrace the fruit theme (of which there seem to be countless supplies). There is one pale peach clear sticker, but I added strawberries, oranges and aaaall the fruit.  🤷

A use for the big orange shaker sticker!  It COULD sort of pass for a nectarine or more likely an apricot, right?  In any case, just fruit was...well a LOT of fruit so flowers seemed like a logical connection.  I admit I added a few butterflies because THEY were a logical connection to the flowers!  I mean they’re attracted to nectar and blossoms, right?

If that wasn't enough, I finished with sprinkles of peachy and apricoty coloured sequins from Spiegelmom Scraps!  Just because Summer is hot and uncomfortable, doesn't mean I'm not fabulous! 🤣. Because crafty girls sweat glitter and sequins and stuff like that. 

Thank You Glue Dots for adhering the sequins and the notorious chipboard Thickers!  🙌🙌🙌

I also managed to use another of those big plastic clips! Woohoo! That's Challenge 1 TWICE over! 💪💪💪 Boom!

 That's My Jam

Well that's all from me for now.  I'm off to battle the tech dragon and attempt to shoot a video using September's kit during...September!  🤦

Love and successful (kit) slaying!

  1. I love it! That paper is fabulous and you did such a great job of getting all that fruitiness in there! This is definitely my sort of page with glittery items, sequins and even a shaker element! Fabulous - and I make layouts that I forget to share. All. The. Time! Ha ha!
