A Counterfeit Kit Challenge - Titles And Such

There's a new challenge up on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog today and it's all about creating titles … not just coming up with titles for your layouts, but presenting those titles in fun, unexpected ways.

When I began pulling supplies from my kit to create my layout, I knew I wanted to use this card from the Skyline Paperie shop. My original idea was for the card to be the title. I loved all the different fonts and colors and thought it would be a really cool design element on the page.

Now, here's the layout I actually ended up making … 

I kept changing my mind as I was creating! I thought, "oh, I should really name this layout 2014 since that's the year the photo was taken … oh, maybe I should just name it LOVE … or maybe I should call it Anniversary Prayer to help explain the Scripture verses I included …" I was very indecisive and ended up with a layout that has 3, maybe even 4, possible titles! Which one jumped out at you first?

Don't forget to stop by The Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog to see what the other ladies came up with for this challenge! Happy Scrapping!

Happy Valentine's Day

Hello everyone! Just popping in real quick to wish you all a very Happy Valentine's Day. I hope you're all feeling extremely loved and cherished this afternoon. I also wanted to share a card I made for my husband …

This card was made using the limited edition We Go Together kit from Clique Kits. The kit is now sold out but some of the items are still available for purchase in the shop (see here). I also used an exclusive cut file (the "you amaze me") which was part of the February kit from Clique Kits.

Have A Happy Love Day Everyone!

Believe - A Clique Kits Layout

Have you seen the February kit from Clique Kits?! It's called Punxsutawney and it is, hands down, my favourite kit from the Clique so far- all that Dear Lizzy goodness makes me swoon. Unfortunately, it's also going to be my last kit as a design team member for Clique Kits. Last month, I made the difficult decision to resign from the team so that I could better focus on some of the things that are happening in my personal life. It breaks my heart a little because you all know how much I love the Clique Kits! But, at the end of the day, it was the right decision. 

With that said, here is a layout I made using the fabulous Punxsutawney kit! The heart is an exclusive cut file from Clique Kits. If you're interested in seeing how I put this page together, I shared step-by-step instructions over on the Clique Kits blog so be sure to head over there and check out that post for more details!
