Now, let's see where inspiration might have come this month over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge.
This month's challenges were:
- Challenge #1 - May you live in Pinteresting times
- Challenge #2 - Media Studies
- Challenge #3 - Insta Inspiration
As you know, my kits have been a little smaller since January and I am thrilled to be able to say that for the second month running, I've already completely used up my kit! This time around, I got four layouts, 3 of which I'm going to share with you. Layout number four can be found over at the Whimsical Musings blog.
So let's start off with seeing if any of the three layouts fulfil any of the challenges?
This first one is a layout featuring some romantic words and a suddenly camera-shy husband (hence the cover up right there on the photo)! It's not an instagram photo as such but it's square and with a filter so pretty Instagramish!
I've said it before but one of the things I love the most about working with kits - especially kits I've made from my own supplies - is the unexpected looks that can come from combining the products in different ways. I knew that the kit had limited colours but really picking out only the black, white, grey and silver elements to make this monochrome layout was such fun.
The whole layout started off when I saw this large 6x4 card which drove the direction I decided to take to make a layout with some hidden words of romance.
I am in love with shaker elements and keeping the contents simple seemed to work so well here.
So next time I decided to pick out the colours from the kit for the next layout and when I realised how many orange and yellow tones there were it seemed to make sense to pick out some "stolen" IG piccies of my new nice - aha! Challenge #3 - check! (even if it's not exactly a mini book!)
Using the wooden veneer word along with a printed element on the pocket card makes a perfect title. And with gorgeous photos like these, who needs pages and pages of journalling? A few lines were more than enough to allow the photos to just shine.
Last up to share this month is the first layout I made this month, sitting in a hotel room, with some random photos and limited supplies as part of LOAD216! But it was done and even though I think it needs a bit of pepping up, it used up bits of the kit and features some of the small Hipstamatic photos I took in Dresden some years ago (so not IG but pre-IG equivalent!)
The layout photos are not perfect but you get the idea.
There are an awful lot of letter saves over these layouts as I had these gorgeous silver letters but none of them were useful! I had to really thing outside the box of which letters could become which other letters.
What was inspiring you to create this month?
I'm at the end of the hop this month but if you got lost along the way, here's the full list.
