Vintage Fashion Plates

Here are a couple more cards I made from my "Grungey Valentine" kit for Counterfeit Challenge. I'm quickly depleting my supplies (this is a good thing - but admittedly sometimes bittersweet! :) )

As a tribute to my Grandma & Grandpa A - who will be celebrating their 68th wedding anniversary tomorrow 2/14- a layout about "Numbers". I painted the background pp with white paint, then "took off some paint" with bubble wrap. I did a variation on the glass bauble tutorial from Counterfeit challeng w/ the Tim Holtz fragments (from stash). Everything from my Grungey valentine kit.

Thanks for looking - enjoy the day!

Kyle - will you be my valentine?

Kyle, you've been gone just over 6 months and I miss you all the time. I hope you've finally found the peace you couldn't find here on this Earth. xoxo little brother.

I just love this awful ruffled shirt you found at the Goodwill, and much to Mom's dismay wore to your high school graduation!! LOL
Layout inspired by one I saw in the Two Peas gallery.

Grungey Valentine

Happy Saturday!! ~ My sweet Valentine, Paul, and I have been living 4+ hours away for over a year now (due to his job), with what appears to be no end in sight. I miss him dearly, BUT do you think I could get my Valentine's card in the mail on time? NOPE.!

(Sorry hon :) )You girls will see it before he does ~

I also whipped up a little something with some really fun papers from Scarlet Lime, that I've been hoarding. I also included a cheap dress pattern from a garage sale ($.10), assorted thickers & Cosmo alphas, Pink Paislee tape, left over Glitz scraps, Tim Holtz bingo sticker. I came across this cute "ephemera" trunk show ad from an old Scarlet Lime kit. Everything from my Counterfeit Kit, except that little trunk show ticket.

Thanks for lookin' Good lookin'. I'm a new blogger, please follow me, if you you'd like. More mayhem is sure to ensue!

Counterfeit Kit Challenge

Hey Girls,
So I came across a new challenge blog to get my scrappy mojo rolling again. The pretense is - you create your own kits from your stash based on an inspiration kit (provided). What a novel idea, since I'm real long on kits these days! It puts a fresh fun spin on old goodies you already own!

Inspiration kit:

And here's what I came up with - all from my stash- called Grungey Valentine. It's filled with Tim Holtz, Basic Grey, Glitz, MME, Jenni Bowlin, and some other goodies. Lots of the papers aren't even 12 X 12 any longer, but I need to use 'em up! Loads of bling, and alphas. I didn't include cardstock, but I'll use kraft, black and white from my stash to round out the kit.

Inky & Messy Stuff Add on: Included are 2 mists, white paint, twine, ribbon, lots of stamps, pleated ribbon and a dress pattern.

Bon Appetit,Karrie
