Challenge #1: Invisibles and Clear Cuts

Have you been checking out the new CHA releases?  I am lucky and got drawn into one company (Crate Paper) in particular, so at least I don't have to collect things from all over.  Bella Blvd has some fun new releases, too, this year called Invisibles and Clear Cuts.

Invisibles are clear papers with a colorful pattern on them.  How fun to be able to see other paper behind them!

Clear Cuts are Transparency overlays with more of a subtle pattern...making them more sheer.

I think we can do a little something with these....

Challenge #1:  Use something sheer or clear on your project!

It might be time for me to get out my Cuttlebug...I see some embossed clear embellishments in my future!

You might need some inspiration for this one and we are here to help!

Our Guest Designer, Doris did a beautiful layout with a lot of smart touches to it!

Lynnette used some vellum to give a dreamy quality to these travel-inspired tags.

Check out all the details on her blog HERE.

Leslie used her gold-on-vellum forged paper.
Get the close-ups & 411 on her process HERE.


Now, how can YOU participate? 
Click on the "Monthly Link Up" tab to find Mr. LINKY and link us to YOUR kit and projects using your kit so we can leave you some love!  
We will 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)
