Getting Shifty With My Counterfeit Kit

Last night I sat down in my craft room with only one objective: to make a page for this year's One Little Word. I've definitely had my word - shifty - in mind recently and I'd like to start documenting how it's starting to define me and my choices this year. But first, a title page.


So with this month's The Counterfeit Kit on standby, plus a few of my gorgeous stamps from Make The Day Special, I got a 'shift on'.

I would never have used this Making Memories patterned paper as a background (or possibly, ever) without the encouragement from the Counterfeit Kit Club. It seemed just too damn special. So, in order to make myself feel a little bit better about using it, I pulled the rest of the papers from my scrap stash.

Shift Detail 2

The main focal paper was a practice sheet which I'd tested out my shimmer mists and stamps on and I've only added a couple of pieces straight from the packet - some American Crafts Remarks, Thickers and a little bit of bling.

Here's to shifting some of my stash!


  1. Love it! nice take on the challenge.

  2. That paper is fantastic! You clustered your journaling/embellishments nicely so it still shines. I really like your take on this challenge. All of the layers are great!

  3. Beautiful! I like the tickets and the little butterfly. Looks you are off to a great start.

  4. Love the paper and the way you did the embellishments!

  5. Oooh nice paper! And quite right to use a special piece for a special title page. I love the clusters and I like the idea of the title hanging over the label, I would always try and fit something in the gap but I might have to pinch this idea!

  6. Very pretty! I love what you did with this!

  7. I think your layout is very pretty...I love the little cluster of embellishments and ephemera. I'm glad you were able to "just use" your special paper!

  8. That paper is fabulous! Love how you used it, the red ink is wonderful :)

  9. Well now, isn't that just beautiful? Good for you! :-) It's a layout worthy of the special paper xx
