I'm home from 5 nights away, and happy to say that Flightdeck 301 was fabulous - both the apartment and the Counterfeit Kit of the same name!
I completed 6 pages, and made a start on 2 more.
How did I manage it? Well, first off, I constructed my Counterfeit Kit a bit differently this time. After choosing some papers based on the inspiration kit, my second step was to then choose some photos I wanted to scrap with them.
Next up, I was pretty generous with what I packed - like extra cardstock and plenty of stamps and ink. I was very happy that I packed my little box of small scraps, as well as my 1 inch circle punch and dome stickers for custom DIY "flair".
And finally, every time I felt stuck and tempted to put a page aside, I tried to improvise using what I had. When I bemoaned the fact that I didn't have any mist to soften the plainness of cardstock, I came back in with some stamping.
When the colour of something wasn't quite right, I adjusted the shade with ink.
And when I didn't have a circle cutter I (gasp!) cut the circles by hand!
(And scrapbooking on the dining table of an evening in front of the TV sure helped my productivity, too!)
Silhouette owners, did you notice that lovely "wonky circle" cut file that I used on two of these pages? You can download it for free here!
