Using My Counterfeit Kit

This month I'm participating in the Counterfeit Kit Challenge. I chose the Studio Calico add-on kit, Sunny Clearing, because I liked the bright colors and smaller number of items. Here's my kit, which includes papers from Crate Paper, Basic Grey, Fancy Pants and KI Memories.
I don't usually start with product, so I chose to make a few cards this first time around and not stress about making a scrapbook layout. Didn't have to mess with photos, journaling, title. Just played with the paper!

The design of these thank you cards is a total scraplift from this blog post. Thanks, Lisa!

So that was fun! I even had enough supplies (and confidence) leftover to go ahead and attempt the mini challenge. But, I'm saving that layout for the Blog Hop, so I hope you'll come back next Monday! Okay, I hope you'll come back before then, but you know what I mean.

  6. I love your cards! The colors are so bright and cheerful. This is a great idea - starting with cards when you have a product challenge. I will have to file this idea away!
