Counterfeit Kit Challenge for June

NOTE:  So I realized when I posted my link,
I didn't change my title from the last time I posted a link in April.
Rookie mistake =)
So you aren't getting two cards, you are getting my June Kit.
Crazy girl.


WOW!! So  I'm late getting this posted this month.
We've been in the middle of redoing a space in our home into a scrap room 
this month, and guess what?
It is done!!
Well nearly =)
My Mr. Winslow is going to hang my curtain rod on the wall,
probably this evening,
and we are calling it complete.

So I was really excited about this challenge in particular
when I realized we could use anything we wanted
as far as color theme, etc.
At first, I wasn't as excited until I realized all that could be done with a kit like this,
and then, Yep I am PUMPED!!  =)

So I actually decided to make two kits, 
but only showing one here.
(I don't have pics of the other yet).
They are a baby boy kit for my grandbabe,
and a vacation kit, since we just went on vacation in May.

So let's get to this kit shall we?  =)
Here she is.....
Isn't she a beaut?
This is the baby boy kit (of course =)

My papers are mainly from the DCWV Baby Boy paper stack,
but I have thrown in a monkey sheet (random) and an owl sheet (also random =).
I have found in making this Scrapbook Studio that I am greatly lacking
Now I am not greatly lacking ANYTHING else,
but I don't have a lot of basic cardstock,
but I pulled from what I had and am making it work:
blues, brown, white and cream.

The letter stickers I chose are Sassafras Lass wood grain,
and these letter stickers are included in a grandparent's sticker book.

I chose 3 stamp sets instead of two:
a cute little bubble fish with journaling room,
a birdie page, mainly for the banner,
and the ever popular, never used, fair ribbons (I have a LO in mind using these use).

For journaling:
K & W Baby Boy Tags
and also various and sundry other tags from
the DCWV stack and the other package you see here
(that I cannot think of the name =).

I pulled out borders, diet cuts, stickers, and buttons and brads, etc.

For my "messy" I chose Tattered Angels in Sunflower.

For my extra it is banner stickers and these
little Tim Holtz pins that look like vintage diaper pins.

Well there you have it.

I have already made two LO's from this kit,
and am SO excited to be scrapping from homemade kits.
I have LOTS O STUFF in my stash 
and so with each kit
there will also be the addition of scraps.
I have SO many scraps.
So they are not pictured here,
but there are so very many and I want to use them up,
so I will be using them as I go.

Thanks for stopping by ~~

Have a Crafty Day ~~
