|Start:||The design team members at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog are using some creative thankful printables by the very talented Allison Kimball to celebrate our gratitude this November. After all, 'tis the season. |
You can find these fabulous printables to download here and here. I used two. First, I cut one in half and made a tag split between two boxes. Then I used part of another to layer on top. In Picasa I changed the tone into a warmer and less harsh one than the black and white.
My other favorite detail of this printers’ tray is the spool of XOs. My engineer son could explain to you that because of negative torque that wants to unwind the cardstock from around the spool, you need to use lots of adhesive. It popped off several times until I added double-sided tape on the spool as well as glue dots on the ends of the paper.
|Style & Stash:||Because we counterfeiters really like to use up our stash, I pulled out an old class Elle’s Studio kit to make my project. The kit was called Forever Grateful from back in 2011. As these things go, of course, the directions didn’t match up with photo sizes I had printed. So most of the design work here (excepting the bottom right compartment) was my own take using those supplies, plus bits from my stash.|
The 12 x 12 papers included in the kit were from Crate Paper’s Random collection and Studio Calico’s Memoir line. The epoxy LOVE was from Momenta and chipboard squares with my family members’ initials are from Making Memories. The black Thickers are from American Crafts, and the skinny black washi is from Tim Holtz.
I would be remiss if I did not end this post with thanks to you for hopping along with us at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge. We are grateful that you do.
Furthermore, I would be doubly remiss if I did not give a shout-out of gratitude to the wonderful team at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge – these gals are not only talented, but a joy to know and work alongside!
