August Challenge #3: Vellum Challenge

When my kids were little, I would add all sorts of veggies to the things they ate.  In a very sneaky sort of way.  Now, they will eat pretty much fear.  I would like to think that was all me, but it probably wasn't.  Now I want to sneak you a bit of something you might not love...No Fear, remember!!

Challenge #3:  Vellum Challenge:  Use Vellum on your project.

Yep...Vellum.  I think we all (unless you are a super purger) have a bit hanging around in your craft space some where.  I know you can find a way to sneak it in...

Need some ideas?  What else are we here for?

Lynnette used this gorgeous gold polka dot vellum that was sent to her all the way from Germany (wink, wink...Lisa!)  Read more on her blog here.

Stephanie actually loves working with vellum and used a sheet on the layout below. Can you see it? It's tucked underneath something else. You can see close-ups and read the journaling on her blog

Jemma has finally finished up a sheet of her favourite vellum ever - take a closer look here


Now, how can YOU participate?  Go to the sidebar and use Mr. LINKY to link up YOUR kit or a project using your kit so we can leave you some love! We make a brand new Mr. Linky for each month, so get your blog posts linked ASAP!

To make Mr. Linky a little easier for us to use, please type your name and then a description of what you are linking (ie: kit, mini challenge, ect).

We also have a Flicker group, if you don't have a blog, but would like to share your creativity with us!  CKC Blog Flicker Group

If you take a peek at our side bar <<<<<<<<  you will see links to our Facebook and Pinterest, as well.  We hope to see you hanging out at ALL of those places.

We also have a new twist on our Follower Blog Hop for this year!  I hope you like it!

End of the Month Blog Hop:
On the 24th of each month we offer a blog hop opportunity to all of our followers!  A chance for you to show off a special project made with your counterfeit kit for that month.

Here is how it will work:
Your Blog Hop Project may be from any of the 3 challenges we offer throughout the month.
Your project must be something new that you have not shown before and only post for the hop.

To be a part of our blog hop:
1.  E-mail us your name/blog address/promise to participate at  BY THE 18th!  (No late requests will be able to join this time due to the work it takes for us to get it put together.)

2.  You will receive  an e-mail from us by the 20th with a list of the hop participants.

3.  You will need to schedule your own blog post showing your project based on this challenge and links to the person after you in the hop.

4.  All Blog Hop posts will need to be scheduled to go live on the 24th at 12:00 A.M. Mountain Standard Time (Arizona)


  1. For me this isn't a challenge, it is a delight! I love vellum :)

  2. I LOVE vellum and have a great supply of it to use for this challenge! Yes, even enough to send a bit over the ocean from time to time! ha ha! What a great challenge and three gorgeous layouts to inspire us. Nice work ladies :-)
