CKCB August Kit - French Life.

Yesterday, the Master Forgers @ the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog revealed the August Counterfeit kit, "The Confidence Kit" from Scrapbooking from the inside out.

The Confidence Kit
Whilst I was thinking about how to put my own kit together I visited some of the Master Forgers blogs for inspiration.

This is what I came up with.

French Life

Printed papers.

Graphic 45, French Country Collection; Teresa Collins, Now & Then; Crate Paper; Basic Grey, Hello Luscious; Toga, Doux Souvenirs; Bo Bunny, Mama-Razzi.
Vanilla, caramel, sage, red & blue cardstock from stash.


Lots of mini alphas stickers. Echo Park red alphas; brown & black polka dot American Craft alphas and some typewriter style alphas from stash.


I saw on Jemma’s blog justjimjams how she forged some “Polaroids”,  I pinched  was inspired by that idea and created a few for my kit using the Graphic 45 papers.

Gorgeous pastel toned Dear Lizzy chipboard stickers; champagne bottle caps; upsy daisy embellished brads; home sweet home ribbon; red striped washi tape; Ranger Distress Ink; bundled sage & fired brick; Distress Stain; worn lipstick; Adirondack Colour Wash, Lettuce; assorted stamps “a la fran├žaise”,  trim & border stickers from stash.
I've set myself an extra challenge again this month since my summer/vacation/beach theme worked so well in July.
August's challenge will be to use only new photographs taken here in Normandy.
