February Counterfeit Kit Wrap-up (with a little bit of help from Shimelle)

On the 27th of February, I had decided, with 8 pages under my belt, that I was done with my Counterfeit Kit for the month.  Not as in used up every last bit, mind you, just run out of time.  But then on the 1st of March, I changed my mind and decided to have a go at maybe just an extra page or two. 
But where to go for a bit of help on the 1st of the month, when all the February challenges have finished and none of the March ones have started?  Why, Shimelle, of course!
I started with a starting point here

Here's my version:

If a tree falls in the forest and there's no one to hear it, does it make a sound?  Similarly, if a skateboarder pulls off a trick and there's no one to photograph it, did they really perform that trick?  Rohan is fortunate to have a friend who loves taking skateboard photos almost as much as he loves to skateboard, and these are a couple more of Liam's photos.
I used the free font, LogoSkate, to cut a few quick embellishments for this page.

This page came out of my own head, just inspired by the cute photo of Angus and his friend back in kindergarten, and the fun negative cut of the arrows.

Finally, a page based on this sketch:

 And once again, if you don't take this sketch as an opportunity to use up branding strips and other thin off-cuts of paper, I call that a wasted opportunity!

This is a bit of a new way of doing a double page for me, kind of a single page layout plus another page with supporting photos!

Woo-hoo, that brings my total of pages for the Kit up to 9 singles and 2 doubles, as well as using some more of my die-cuts, labels and wood veneers.  See you soon with my March kit!


  1. great pages Julie, well done using those last strips

  2. Great job with the sketches! Way to use up that kit!!! I love the skateboarding photos and the little wood veneer people on the kindy page!

  3. You did a beautiful job with those sketches!! And I love that you were able to use the branding strips on the last layotu!! I used the final sketch as well and was able to use a ton of scraps on it!

  4. Excellent job with the sketches. Love your analogy for the skateboard tricks. Your layouts look great.

  5. Brilliant layouts. Those skate photos are fab and you've done them justice! Love the negative arrows on the second one too! x
