Shana Tova cards for charity

Rosh Hashanah is 3 months ahead, and I've started making greeting cards. There's a great initiative on a local FB group to make charity greeting cards for an elderly people, holocaust survivers, and I decided to join the project.
I've used my June Counterfeit Kit, and this project is 'a killing kit' project :).

I've already made 14 cards, and I intend to make more in the next 2 months (till the project reaches it's dead line).
It feels so good to know that these cards will make people happy.
Actually, I've used most of my kit and it makes me so happy! There's another layout I've made using this kit, but you'll have to wait till July 1st to see it. Meanwhile I can share a sneak peek:

Live, laugh, love - a midori style traveler's notebook

For a while I've been wanting to make myself a midori style traveler's notebook, and our coming vacation was the trigger to do it. 
I've used my June Counterfeit Kit for it, mixing all kinds of papers, note cards and embellies. For the cover I used a thin foam and adhered a pp to it. 
I've made two mini notebooks as inserets - one for the planning of the vacation and one to document it.
One notebook was binded with staples, while the other one by sewing. I prefer the staples as binding.
I used elastic cord for the spine and to close the whole TN.
Here're photos of the inside:

A notebook pad folder

  Here's another project I've made using my June Counterfeit Kit - a notebook pad folder for a co-worker friend. 
I used Yael's tutorial, which you can fine HERE.
There's a dimensional envelope on one side, and a A5 notepad on the other side. 
In the envelope, I enclosed some cards with cute sentiments, and some washi tape pages.

I would like to enter it to the June challenge at Scor-Pal, which is 'Warmer Days' and to the monthly chaweallenge at Mini Albums Makers:

#Summer - CSI case file no. 285

This is my take on case file 285 at CSI, with this inspiration photo:
At the begining, I didn't like the photo and the colors, but then I thought I'd give it a try, using my June Counterfeit Kit, and voila! 
This is how I solved the case: I used all 5 colors (that was the real challenge!). For the evidence - stripes, flowers, trees, sun, a bird, feathers, wet medium, camera, vellum, a bow and buttons. I documented our visit to the kangaroo park years ago.
I use Laura Whitaker's fab sketch from My Creative Scrapbook:
Along using my kit, I added the oval frame and the hashtag title - chipboards from Creative Embellishments.
I covered them both with white gesso. For the frame I used Lindy's spray Fuzzy Navel Peach 3 times, and then I inked here and there with Ranger's embossing ink and used Lindy's ep - Byzantine Bronze. The title was heat embossed with Lindy's Sunset Yellow Orange ep.
I also used Lindy's Frosty Forest Green spray to splatter here and there.
Here're some close-ups on the details:

I would like to enter it also for June challenge at Creative Embellishments:
I was inspired by most of the colors in the image, the summer atmosphere and the sun.

An exploding box for a wedding, with 5 mini albums

I've made an exploding box, with 5 mini albums inside, as a gift for a friend, who's son got married.
It's a very big exploding box, 5"x5"x5", so you don't make it from one 12x12 cardstock! I used Yael's tutorial, which you can find HERE, with some small changes.
The papers are from Piatek 13, 'Love in Bloom' collection. I've used mainly the 6x6 pad, but also some 12x12 papers.
Each mini album is different in design.
All in all, this box can hold 60 photos and more, sized 4"x4".
Here are the photos of the inside content:
The lid:
Open, with the 5 mini albums:
1 st mini album:
2nd mini album, it's a mini book:
3rd mini album, an accordion mini album:
4th mini album:

5th mini album in the middle:

So Fab - June Counterfeit Kit Challenge

June counterfeit kit challenge is based on May 2019 Hip Kit Club:
I was inspired by some of the colors, the whimsical feeling, and by some of the patterns (florals, stripes, watercolor strokes). I also wanted to use 6x6 papers and scraps I've had for very long time.
So here's my kit - So Fab:
And now let's have a look into the kit:
First - 12 x 12 papers:
Add on - papers - craps and 6 x6 papers:
Embellishmet - lots of stickers, tags, ephemera, journaling cards:
And I also counterfeited some of the items in the inspiration kit - I've made a vellum paper with gold embossing:
Some beautiful bows and tabs from pp:
 tags, labels and circles:
foam embellies, this is my fav on this kit - I stamped on a white thin foam, and backed it with double sided tape, and so I have my own 'puffy' embellies:
I made some watercolor style strokes, and two rainbows, using some Lindy's Gang sprays on a watercolor paper, and also made some vellum phrases, using Lindy's embossing powders:
And here's my full kit, all packed and ready to use (I sneaked in some enamel dots and washi tapes):
I'm already working on my first project from this kit, and hope to finish it no later then Sunday :).
