September CKCB Kit

Welcome to the September CKCB Blog Hop.
if you are following the hop,
then you should have come here from the lovely Angela's blog.

I absolutely LOVE the kit for this month.
It is the July Citrus Twist Kit.
They have several kits and we can choose whichever one we would
like from July.

I chose the lovely Project Life Kit entitled "Adventure".
Now let me just do a disclaimer:
I know, I know, if I'm not, then why in the world
would I choose that kit for this month?

Well, for the month of September,
I will be participating in Shimelle's
Learn Something New Everyday,
and this year she is using divided page protectors.
I decided that I wanted to do mine that way as well.

I have also decided to start an album for my Gbabe,
Sir Cuteness, and do it in a divided page protector style,
because he loves all things linear and organized.
So although this is NOT the way I normally scrapbook,
it will be such a wonderful challenge.

So here is the kit I am counterfeiting.....

I have chosen 2 paper packs essentially for this.
Because LSNED is for 30 days, I need quite a bit of paper.....

Oh EP "Here and Now" how I love thee!!

I chose my sassafras letter stickers for this kit.
They are a good size for this kind of kit.....
And I need to use them up =)

Now when it comes to embellies,
I am choosing somethings that will repeat throughout my album.
I LOVE the wood veneer and these wood circles.
I got the circles at a garage sale this summer.
A HUGE lot of them for about $3.  GREAT deal!
Also the original kit had some sequins so I have included those as well.

Now I wanted to show you some of my base pages for my LSNED
album.  I love how Shimelle uses one sheet of 12x12 for her title page.
I loved it so much that I am doing my whole album, for the most part
like this.  I am taking a 12x12 and cutting it to fit my divided pages,
but you still get the look of the whole 12x12, and then I will build 
on top of that.
I am SO very excited about this!!
This will be my title page.

Here is another example....
This is two pages, both doily pages from the Maggie Holmes Collection
paper pack.  One in green, one in pink.  LOVE.

Well now I wanted to share with you the original kit that I did for this
month from this kit.  This is the kit I will be using for Sir Cutenesses album,
and even if I don't get to really use it a lot this month, it will be the one that
I use to work on it, so I will be showing you some of the pages I do as I get them

Yes there is some bottle caps, regular flair and super hero flair.
Yep we are cool like that =)
And some printables too.

And then here are some items that me and Sir Cuteness have made
over the last month or so.  He LOVES to play with me in the studio,
and some of these items we made in Claudine Hellmuth's class last
And yes there are also some lovely banners and doilies in there.
Looking really forward to using this kit as well.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  
Now please hop on over to the lovely Jemma and see what she has picked
out for July.

And here is the entire hop list just in case you get lost:

Have a Blessed and Beautiful,
Krafty Kind of day ~~ 


  1. Snap - at least to the choice of kit! I was tempted to use it for LSNED but I know I'm not a finisher and so mine will be for ordinary pages. Good luck and have fun with it!

  2. I first did LSNED back in 2006 and am tempted to jump right in again this month. Mmmm - given your inspiration here, that is so very tempting!
    Great stuff here - such a lot of lovely product

  3. Great kit, those typewriters are so cute - enjoy :)

  4. you've done a great job here, love what you've chosen

  5. Ooh, I am doing LSNED as well (and I'm hoping that it will bring back my much lacking mojo.) Loving the kit that you've put together and hoping that I'll see it pop up in the forums during class x

  6. Dawn I am in awe of all that stuff.Love your paper choices and wish I had as much lettering as you.Looking forward to seeing your creations.

  7. Oh my! I spy so many familiar "Unchartered Waters" and Maggie Holmes (which 14.99 was a great price for that pad!). I just adore those doily papers, too. Beautiful kit! Good luck with your kit and Shimelle's class.

  8. I love the paper spanning the entire page!
    So much to love in your kit :~D
    Have fun this month with Shimelle!

  9. Love this beautiful kit and thank you for sharing he tip on cutting a 12 by 12 sheet to fit into pocket page, love the result and can't wait to see what you will do with this !

  10. gorgeous kit! I love the pattern papers you chose (especially the Maggie Holmes collection - my fave!) and I am just drooling over all those amazing Sassafrass letters!!

  11. Great kit! I don't do PL either, but chose the project life kit for my kit inspiration this month too. I do use divided page protectors often when I want to include a lot of photos in my album so it should work. I can't wait to see what you create with your kit.

  12. I am in LSNED, too, and I love that you're using a CKCB kit for it!

  13. great kit, all the best with your project.

  14. oh my gosh... weeeell, I AM a project lifer and I LOVE what you have done with your pockets.. I instinctively chose that same kit....hee hee!

  15. Both are wonderful kits! Loving those Sassafras alphas!
