Catch a Falling Star

Here is my take on this months Counterfeit Kit ..The Confidence Kit.

When I first saw this the colours that seemed to jump out at me were turquoise, brown and a hint of pink with some sand and beige. This was great as I had earlier seen a lovely LO in turquoise and pink and it wasn't a colour combination I had used before and I had decided I really wanted to... so this was the inspiration for my kit that I have called 'Catch a Falling Star'. 

Here is the original- found over at CKCB that I blogged about earlier today. 

First I started with selecting the card-stock in the colours mentioned above and then I chose all of the papers to co-ordinate... I had a ball choosing the papers and found some co-ordinating Project Life style cards.. one with 'Catch a Falling Star' on it. Then I found some brown and sand camera and globe stickers and thought that these went well with everything else along with the alphas in cream and turquoise with pink and brown chipboard alphas too.

Here is my take on the kit 

I then included ink pads, brown bloomer ribbon, pink and blue brads, pinky brown buttons, pink and blue bakers twine and a number of other embellishments here with some wooden words, some pink chips and pink and blue paper clips in the shape of an aeroplane finished off with a couple of bronze charms amongst others. 
I'm off to a crop tomorrow so I am looking forward to using this lush kit!


  1. Ooo...I see some good stuff in there - like the chipboard flower, some bling & a great selection of papers. (May I ask what "bloomer ribbon" is?)

    1. Sure...

  2. Pink and aqua have been my colour combo of choice recently, they do go so well together. Looks like a great kit, you'll have fun with it I'm sure and can't wait to see what you create.

  3. wow, what a great kit! I love the wooden words and can't wait to see how you incorporate them onto a layout.

  4. What a lovely kit!! I LOVE those alphas. Such a pretty mauve-y pink.
