Counterfeiting a Starting Point.


I’ve been busy scrapping – having a counterfeit kit certainly seems to be increasing my creativity, but first here’s a LO I did for the latest challenge at From Screen 2 Scrap.  This month’s inspiration is this poster:

The extra criteria were black cardstock, a house somewhere on the page and a title with one word in red.  Here’s my page, using some photos from a Casino party I went to last Saturday:

I’ve got the black cardstock and the red word in the title, but can you spot the house? No?  Then I’ll explain – the cards tumbling from the top corner are a poker hand called a Full House.

I also used my counterfeit kit with Shimelle’s starting point:

The base paper has a lovely pattern on the other side, which I wanted to use on another LO, so I gutted page before sticking everything down:

And here’s my finished page.  I even managed to use two of the paper clips I decorated with bows.

I’ve got my usual busy weekend ahead but I’m hoping to find some time for some more scrapping.  After all I still have those counterfeited patchwork pieces to use.

What are you up to?

  1. Hiya Julie gorgeous LO I so love your pages but son’t always comment! I really hope you are coming to the bloggers weekend in March would be great to see you again xxx

  2. Two fab pages – the first is so clever and love your thrifty gutting on the second. Great word play on that title too!
    A Casino Night sounds like a fun thing to do … did they teach you how to play? I wish I’d had time to study some card games & craps before Vegas so that I could play without losing everything straight away.
    I think I need to find a “penny” casino!
