March Counterfeit Kit Projects

My March Counterfeit Kit has been languishing in it’s box all month long. Not because I didn’t like it – in fact I love it for it’s bright happy colours, and my handmade embellishments! But March has been busy with illness and birthdays, and I had other crafty projects to make for deadlines, so my poor kit was feeling neglected.
Not anymore though! Over the last couple of days I’ve made a layout and a couple of cards, and I’m working on some more. So though it’s taken me a while to get to it, I know I’m going to get a lot of use from it eventually!
Here’s the layout – Moments:
I chose soft colours for this page about my Dad walking me down the aisle on my wedding day. I like the coral colour in the patterned papers – it’s not quite so girly as pink but still has a romantic feel.
I used the Pink Paislee ‘moments’ word for my title, though I still haven’t completely decided whether to put another word before this so it says ‘nervous moments’ or ‘sweet moments’ or something like that – what do you think? I couldn’t choose what other word to use as their were so many emotions going through me at the time!
There’s a cluster of embellies below my journaling – I used the key to symbolise that my future was becoming ‘unlocked’, my fimo feather was the perfect colour, and I love the heart button which is pale but pearly. I stuck these all on with glossy accents:
I’m happy with the dreamy feel to the page!
Here are the cards I’ve finished so far…
Believe You’re Awesome:
A pretty card to cheer up a friend. I heat embossed a chipboard butterfly with white embossing powder – thanks Sarah for lending it to me! And I added some little pink gems to the wings, so it looks nice and sparkly.
For You: 
I just had to use this cute owl on something! This card would make me smile so much if it came through my door – I just adore cute owl designs. Plus the yellow is so cheerful. I can’t wait to send it out to someone!
Can you see the little heart stamp? It’s from the Maya Road ‘You Are’ Stamp set in my kit – I used it on my layout too. I am going to be using this heart all over the place – it stamps so clearly and is a sweet finishing touch!
Have you been making any projects that make you feel happy lately? x

  • Love that layout and the coloured papers. I think that moments works on its own, but anxious or emotional would work too!

  • Love the “Moments” page – the colour combo is gorgeous! I actually think the title is fine as it is – but if you want to add something how about “Special”?The cards are loevly – the embossed butterfly turned out beautifully and having seen it in real life I know how gorgeous the card is!! x

  • Gorgeous colours in the wedding layout. I think its lovely as it is and it would be hard to find a word that fits but if I needed to then I think I would use “Just”. You were Just Moments away and that snapshot was just a moment in the day, we tend to remember just moments of special days like that rather than the whole thing etc.
