Scraplift myself - Counterfeit Kit blog hop

Welcome to the blog hop at Counterfeit Kit challenges

this is a scraplift one of my older layout.
When I started scrapbooking I did it all by myself digitally, creating everything from scratch. I decided to go with A4 as that would be easiest to house as I could just use a ring binder and multipunched sleeves. I was still very new to the programme I use and didn't know much of what it could do so my pages were very simple.
This is the double page that I lifted.
My Baby Brother LHSMy Baby Brother RHS

Here is my brand new paper and glue version using my counterfeit kit which is mainly woodland themed
Sister & Brother
I took aspects of the original, stripy paper, corrugated corners tags etc. and revamped it completely
the tags are very thin copper sheet, cut in strips and put through a dimo machine.
Sister & Brother (embossed strips)Sister & Brother (tag with raccoon)
I cut the raccoon from one of the cutouts, added it to a label and the little hearts are the swarf from cutting the punched border
The copper sheet and brads I added to my Kit

If you are doing the blog hop then here is the next step along the way over to Sue's place hope you are enjoying the ride
if you have arrived back at my blog from Angela's it should be Lesa next but hopefully Angela will see her mistake and rectify it soon

Love the metal strips done with the Dymo Mary - never thought of that! The colours really suit these "vintage" photos - very 70s!

Lisa said...

Great job on changing it up a little. Isn't it fun to lift ourselves.

Fun to see the same photos two ways! I like the copper punched, I've used letter punches and dynamo and both are so effective aren't they?

Larisa said...

Great job! Love the small details a lot! Very nice page)

Now digital is something I can never get the hang of - I'll stick with paper, because you can do such great things with it. Like you! That tag is adorable and I love all of the 'woodland' colours!
