July 2021 - Challenge #1 Tickets please!

 Time is flying and it's our first challenge of the month, so let's get going right away.

A quick reminder of our kit for July - New Episode by Paper Person:

And now onto the challenge....

Ticket, please! 

The ticket and cinema elements in this kit reminded me of all the ticket stubs and piles of "stuff" I keep to use on my projects... one day!  Today is the day to get some of those memories out and onto a layout.  So I challenge you to use a ticket or in fact, any collected memorabilia on your project

Guest Designer Antonia included some ticket stubs and receipts on her layout. She placed them in a journaling pocket and incorporated them into the embellishments by layering some embellishment pieces around and on top of the pocket. 


You can find out all the details over in her Youtube process video here: 

Master Forger Tara has completed her challenge using Military Ball photos and the ticket that her husband purchased for the two of them to attend. You should read about where this ticket has been hanging out on her blog post HERE

Master Forger Kate here with my take on Challenge #1- got to attend a local minor league baseball game for the 4th of July and it was so much fun and the first "normal" thing we'd done all year! We didn't get traditional tickets but I cut part of the photocopy receipt and they gave me a free thin team schedule magnet that I cut apart as well. 

Master Forger Cindy completed challenge #1 using photos of the line up at Allianz Field when they had their first Covid-19 shots.

Master Forger Leslie jumped on the ticket bandwagon with a catch of a recent family gathering.

Master Forger Juliet has been wanting to document this once in a life time dream when she got to see Cirque du Soleil when her hubby in Cancun in 2019. She saved her tickets, pictures weren't the best but the memory will not be forgotten! She did her journaling on one of her forged items too! 

Wow! That's such a lot of inspiration for a Monday morning. I hope you're feeling as motivated as I am to fish out those tickets and get creating.

And of course, as always, we have plenty more to keep you inspired later in the month! 

There's still more to come in July:

  • 18th July: Challenges #2 - to inspire you to get creating from your own kit 
  • 24th July: Follower Showcase - who has caught our eye this month 
  • 31st July: Killing Kits - an idea or two for using up the bits & pieces left in your kit box 

You KNOW that we always love to see your work, so please share your kits and projects with us. You can post them in our Facebook Community, or share them on Instagram (we are @counterfeitkitchallenge or tag us using #counterfeitkitchallenge and #ckcjuly2021). 

 Thanks so much for stopping by! We can't wait to see your kits and projects this month.

  1. MF Kate - such a clever way to create your ticket! MF Juliet - gold star for ephemera on the page + scrapping an older but precious memory!
