Crafting with my November Counterfeit Kit (Part III)

I know that it's officially December.  And there are lots of holiday (and birthday) things to plan this month.  But I wanted to share the last of my projects using my November Counterfeit Kit.

1.  Happy Thanksgiving {a scrapbook layout}

I actually made a coloring page/ placemat for Charlotte using my Cricut, svg cuts from Lettering Delights and the Cricut sketch pens.  I think they turned out wonderfully and was the perfect distraction for Charlotte during dinner.  Since I wanted to somehow preserve the coloring page,  I used it as my background paper for this Thanksgiving layout.  I also loosely based this layout on the Opal #8 sketch by Kristy Lee over at Scrapbook Steals.

Here are some closeups.

2.  You Are My Hero {a card}

And here is a quick card I made using some Studio Calico paper scraps, American Crafts mix tape, Pebbles candy dots, and some Amuse stamps.  It's actually for a family member that was recently honored as a "hometown hero" which is why I used the non-traditional colors.  

Anyways, HAPPY DECEMBER to everyone!!!!!  And as always, thanks for stopping by!


  1. That is a wonderful idea to use the colored placemat for your page background - great way to include the memory. And your card is very eye-catching. Happy December to you too!

  2. I love your layout. What a sweet idea to use the coloring page for the background. I love the white which really sets off your great photos.

  3. Love the colours on your card and such a clever idea to use the colouring page!

  4. Well, I would say you are right up to date - I am still working with the August, October and November kits! I must remember to make them a bit smaller next year ;-)

    I love your hand coloured layout and the card is such a winner. Great projects.

  5. Great use of the placemat. Love the layout and the card is cute too!
