August Counterfeit Kit - For the Guys.

The inspiration for the August Counterfeit Kit is from Gossamer Blue. I love the colors in this kit - great for guy pages, nice tone on tones and darker colors.



Here's my first set of papers - I pick mostly tone on tone papers.

 
 
Colorbok - Mint Julep, Rhonna Farrer, Green Cardstock, Colorbok - Poolside, Colorbok Delilah, Black Cardstock, Reminisce -Real Magic "Firework Spectacular, Unknown Green and PSX Golf Swing,
 

I did download the word stickers that Lisa had as part of her forgeries. Then I pulled three stamps and die sets from Papertrey Ink - Monthly Moments Tabbed and Slide Frame and A Few Pointers. I thought they were a perfect match to the sticker sheet.



For the second set of papers I have scraps from three paper pads - DCWV - Sky's the Limit, Sunday Afternoon and Sweet Tangerine stacks. I want to turn them into a mini album or two - there is at least and 1" of scraps and a few scrap pieces of cardstock. After I make the mini's I'm done with this set of papers.

My last set of paper I pulled have the dark blues orange and red in them. Paper that I thought would be good for some guy layouts. These are papers that I only have one sheet of so I will have to pull cardstock into the pages more than normal and will probably not be able to make similar pages in 8 1/2 x11 and 12x12.


Cherry Arte - Girl Power, Little Yellow Bicycle - Life Collection "Board Shorts Orange", "Wipe Out Orange", "Regatta"; Basic Grey - Mellow :Savory"; Scenic Route - Kraft Spinner, Kraft Surf Board and Kraft Surf Leaf; Little Yellow Bicycle - Life Collection "Ride the Wave" and "Wipe Out Blue"; Creative Imaginations - 2 unknown names; Little Yellow Bicycle - Life Collection "Gears" and "Skate Park Stripe"; and lastly Creative Imaginations - Red Banner.


I had a couple of extra large alphabets from Pink Paislee - Weathered Wood in Denim and Scarlet and ribbon to match along with a sticker sheet from 7 gypsies.

 
Then I pulled a few embellishments: buttons, flowers, more ribbon, tags, a few pieces of chipboard and a chipboard mini "mini" album - its 3 1/2" x 3 3/4".

Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to head over to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge, as they have already posted their forgeries.

Clever way to use up stash this month! You are probably the most prolific scrapper that I know & I'm sure you will have no trouble using this up in August! Thanks for sharing :D

Oh my goodness, I am late in getting around, but glad I didn't miss out on seeing your kit. Fabulous papers, and those flags and banners and tabs, all so fun.
