070118 CKC July Kit Reveal

Summer fun, celebrating Independence Day in the USA
Master Forger Lori is up this month to choose our inspiration & Guest Designer.
Please welcome Sandy Ross, a recent prolific follower at CKC!

You can see more of Sandy's beautiful work on her blog - It's A Family Affair.
Now take a look at a nice variety of jumping off points for your July kit from The Scraproom.
Flavors of the Month (I'm not sure but this link may revert to the current month kit and not June 2018...)
 I was totally unfamiliar with this scrap source and my interpretation is quite loose!
Let's take a look in the Magic Blue Box...

I liked the bright Pink Paislee "Confetti Wishes" (bottom left) flavor & upon closer inspection of that collection I latched onto paper #9 below as it reminds me of one in my stash that I love.
It wasn't even included in the inspiration kit but I was so happy to use it that I went rogue!

My papers:

Webster's Pages "My Happy Place"/Heart & Home; Pink Fresh "Dream On"/Reverie; Webster's Pages "My Happy Place"/Sunshine; Felicity Jane "Caroline"; Maggie Holmes "Gather"/(birds); Maggie Holmes "Gather"/Beautiful; Maggie Holmes "Gather"/Happy Place; Elle's Studio "Thankful"/Sweater; Webster's Pages "My Happy Place"/Heart & Home; Felicity Jane "Caroline".

A closer look: 

I've been sorting all of my printed photos & am itching to get some pages done!
Don't miss any of the inspiration from the Master Forgers - hop on!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Looks delicious. If I had a spoon I could eat it :) I love that marble paper!

  2. It's beautiful. I love the constellation paper. Swooning! x

  3. This is the most rogue I have seen you go in your kits. Enjoy it - I have to say that it is all very tempting.

  4. This kit is gorgeous! I always love to see the bits and pieces that you include, too! I can't wait to see what you create with it!

  5. Lovely kit, and that inspiration paper is awesome and beautiful alphabets.

  6. Awesome to see your version of rogue :) This is a really cool kit too :) Any tips you can share on: I've been sorting all of my printed photos
    Sounds like an adventure in itself.

    1. First, I hunted & gathered! Then separated into bins my childhood, life before children, life with children, post-life with children (not sure if I even have any of those printed?!?) The ancestor box & trunk I inherited will have to wait. Now I am sorting chronologically within the categories into simple letter envelopes by year. Many of my own photos have info on them but my childhood photos rarely do, although some were dated by the developer. I am using my annual school photos to help in dating! Quite a process but it'z moving along. I can take a bin in the car so I'm making good progress!

  7. Thanks for the intro and I love, love, love your kit....especially the marble paper. Great paper to take inspiration from. I need to sort photos too. I am going to remember your ideas!

    1. Thanks! So great to have you on the Team with us this month. I think I may have to do a blog post about the photos sometime soon...

  8. Hooray for rogue! Looks like a professional kit and I want it!!

  9. I love how rogue you went! Inspiration is inspiration is inspiration and it all counts! Fabulous kit and I love that original paper too. Love your photo tips here above. I have all my photos sorted by date but I really ought to do more identifying the stories I want to tell - my process is a bit random!


Would love to know you've been here! Feedback most welcome
