Counterfeit Kit Challenge February Member Blog Hop

Welcome to the February Counterfeit Kit Challenge member blog hop.

As always it's lovely to see you here and I hope you will continue through the hop to check out all the amazing creations our fellow counterfeiters have made.

Today, I'm kicking off the blog hop which is new for me so hopefully you've come to me directly from the Counterfeit blog.

This month our challenge was to create a project about "Why I love..." but without photos.

Not so easy as so often, we are triggered to create by the photo itself. But I looked into my Urban kit and saw my Echo Park paper with the camera motif and decided to go that route. I've probably done a layout before about taking photos, but here I gave myself a bit more space to write a few more lines than usual.


There's a few items on the layout that help support my theme:

  • the fussy cut cameras of course
  • the heart confetti and border strip
  • the washi tape with typical camera posing phrases
  • the heart embossed bag
  • the clouds - sky and clouds being a very typical photo for me
  • all the elements remind me of nature and nature colours which is another top photo subject for me

To be honest, there's so many little meaningful bits and pieces on here, I could have left out the journalling too!


I tried to add some splashes of yellow to contrast with the blue and greens and turned to my green vellum once again to create a journalling pocket. I loved the result of the first chevron embossed bag {here} that I went with the same idea again and used a heart sprinkle stamp.


Originally, I had cut out a handful of clouds which I used as masks for the misting and had intended to add these to the layout too. But they didn't work and off they came to be used another day. I actually like the subtle masking effect much more.


My Urban kit has proved to be one of my faves of recent months. Just love it. What's your favourite of late?

So, I'm going to send you on your way now. The next stop is the very talented Lesley who made such a gorgeous layout last month that she is sure to delight again.

Don't forget to leave me a comment to let me know you were here :-)
