Here are the first two pages made with my Counterfeit Kit for February. It was strange not rooting through my supplies of paper, card, alphas etc to make a page and just opening my CKCB pizza box instead. Faster for scrapping though :D
I was using a sketch from the Monthly Challenge on UKS which also required the use of fibres - luckily that was exactly what was in my kit! I have used a Martha Stewart border punch and some Round-a-Bout Sizzlit dies for the border and title respectively which were not in the kit, along with eyelets, inks and a journalling pen from my own supplies.
Again I was taking inspiration from a challenge from UKS (with a Pagemaps sketch) and the only non-CKCB items that I used were a couple of border punches, inks, a tiny bracket stamp and threads. As all the cousins are eating donuts in the photo, I was originally going to title the page "The Munch Bunch" as suggested by a crop friend Sue, but as I wasn't comfortable with that title wiping out all the "H"s from my sticker set, I adapted it.
The loopy border was yellow (it's the reverse of the blue ogee paper you can see), but it was much too bright so needed dabbing with black ink to tone it down.
So there you have it - I've made a start with the kit and got over my fear of cutting into the pages and using up bits of the kit - worrying in case the page around the corner needs this piece of paper or that alpha sticker or those buttons! It won't (and even if it does, I'll find a way around it won't I?!). After all the whole point about the CKCB is make do and mend!!!
