Ingonish Beach scrapping

My Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit, Ingonish Beach, is already hitting the mark for me and I've completed two layouts so far.

I am totally motivated to scrap right now and have actually embarked on a daily layout challenge with my LOAD friend Whimsical Nature. We called our challenge Whimsical Musings which I love as it brings the two of us together and we are using some prompts from a Lain class over at Scrap Happy.

It's not that I'm enjoying it more than LOAD, it's just that it's less pressure. One of the things I love the most about LOAD is the gallery, the comments and the message board but to be honest, that is also one of the most stressful things about LOAD! It's just too much of a good thing sometimes. I'll be doing whatever LOAD I can in the future but this month, we are a little private group of 2! It's a lot of fun and we are motivating and inspiring each other every day.

My first Ingonish Beach layout is based on a calendar event and I will use it as an example in the prompt for our informal Scrap Happy LOAD later in the year.

My journalling is tucked into the kraft envelope and I really went to town with the banners. I can't get enough of them at the moment and have to stop myself using them on every layout!

I completed the second kit layout this weekend and it was all about the grouping of embellishments. I mixed in a whole load of items from all sorts of places and was thrilled with the result. For once, it's a layout with some cardstock showing and I managed to fit in two 5x7 inch photos which can be hard sometimes. I messed up the journalling but that's ok! I added the fuller story on the back.

I love this story and have been meaning to get it down since it happened. So glad that it's done.

What stories are on your list to scrap?


  1. I agree with you. LOAD is awesome because of all the wonderful people creating and commenting and chatting and being a community... but I can spend upwards of an hour reading comments and viewing layouts. This time around I am enjoying just focusing on the process and the theme of the prompts - Discovering your Iconic Style - is a dear and true one to my heart since I am still in that process. Keep up the good work. xo

  2. Love your layouts Lisa - especially all of the cute, cute banners!

  3. Great layouts - both of them. I started playing around with banners this weekend, but my results don't compare. But I'm determined to catch up with the masters like you!

  4. What a stunning layout with the banners!!! Both layouts are fun. xoxo

    Lovely, Lisa. The colours in the 2nd LO are speaking to me!!! And love those stairs in the photos. The colour or texture or something about them looks awesome. And wow to the first one re: evaluating your life. SOUNDS SERIOUS! :O :O
    ha :) Thanks for sharing your CKC stuff! Heidi in Ontario

  7. What a great job, both are awesome!

  8. Two gorgeous LO's, I especially love the one with the banners, I too could use banners on every LO,lol.xxxx

  9. Isn't it fun how different layouts can come out of one kit. Really great ideas...especially with the banners/kraft envie!


  10. I like both layouts. The banners are great, of course! And I like the photo and colors on the 2nd layout.

  11. Wow, Lisa-I love your style! The first layout is my absolute favorite! Banners are oo my favorite embellies right now, too. Can't wait to see what else you make with your kit!
