Back to school counterfeit style

A double page spread using the last of my counterfeit kit.
The photos are of my sons first day at senior school and my Daughters first day in the sixth form last September.
I added a few Creative Memories back to school stickers to my kit as I had them hanging around and they seemed to fit the bill, along with some Thickers in aa American high school style .
Really pleased I joined the Counterfeit Challenge has made me complete use some different colourways and lingering items.

Happy Anniversary

Card for my husband to celebrate our 3rd Wedding Anniversary.
Used the stamp that came free with Craft Stamper magazine and some card shapes from MME, very simple but pleased with the outcome.

Happy Birthday Harry

A birthday card for my son who is 12 today!
I have used the May counterfeit kit Challenge papers which made me use a different selection of colours to normal.
I used a Papermania Sausage Dog rubber stamp and used a card made for the March/April 2013 Docrafts Creativity magazine as my inspiration for the design.

May Counterfeit challenge Page

Love these photos of us in Frankie and Benny's where the kids were playing a guessing game with the kids pack that came with Daisy's dinner.
I have used my version of the Totally Rad kit suggested by the counterfeit kit challenge using some MME and AC papers.

Hot Ticket Swap

Another UKS challenge, this time to decorate a strip of 10 tickets and send them off in return for some made by another participant.
Thank you to Lou for die cutting the tickets for me

I used distress Inks, Tim Holtz Stamps and burnished the edges with Gold cream, very pleased with the results, hope my swappee likes them too

Counterfeit Kit Challenge - May

Pennies are a bit tight and I have had to cancel my usual monthly kit so I decided to take some inspiration from the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog for May.
The idea is to make your own kit from your stash using a shop kit as a starting point.
Here is my version of the kit originally made by Polly Scraps Kits and its called Totally Rad!
I had some die cuts already cut and have added a sheet of craft as in my 2013 Album I am trying to incorporate alittle on each page to make it more consistent
