I've been marginally better at Whimsical Musings where I've managed to create and post about 80% of the weeks (tut tut!) and I started LOAD1012 but rushed off to the UK in the middle of the month to meet my new niece so couldn't finish.
Which means a lot of layouts which have been made but not posted. Now don't worry, I'm not going to share them all. But I have managed to finish off a couple of older CKC kits and thought I would show you a few of those finished projects.
One of the things I love most about my Counterfeit Kit Challenge kits is that the layouts that get made from them are often really different from each other. I often don't remember that they came from the same kit when I browse through them. I think this might be because I always have several unfinished kits on the go at any time and from layout to layout, I change the kit to use. Going back to unfinished kits means that the papers often get combined in new ways and I might add in one or two little things (such as twine or cardstock) which gives them a new look.
This also means that I get to enjoy my kits a long time, I don't get bored with them (well mostly anyway), and I'm not limiting myself to a certain set of supplies for a lengthy period of time.
However, there's the right time to call a kit finished and today was that day for my very old kit, Packing, from September. So here are a few layouts from that kit...
|This was for Whimsical Musings #55 (inspired by summer memories)|
|This layout is for Whimsical Musings #73 (inspired by orgnisation) but also for WM#63 (inspired by random sets of photos) and using Creative Scrappers sketch #244|
Packing produced only 7 layouts which is on the low side. In the past, I was happy with 6 layouts but with my newer style, I've been getting nearer 10. But somehow, I looked into the box this morning and decided that its time was over. I've tucked all the leftovers back into the rest of my stash and that means I've just three kits left on my shelf. And it's time to make up the new month's kit. I fell in love with it and I hope you will too. Make sure you come back on the 1st to see how I get on!
In the meantime, I'm trying to come up with some new ideas for the blog. I've been inspired by Pam who has set up a few creative series on set days of the month and I love that idea! What would you like to see here on my blog? Any ideas for me?
I'll try and post some layouts from other kits soon but in the meantime, happy Saturday!
