Counterfeit Kit Paper Piecing Mini Challenge

This challenge was the perfect opportunity to pull out my Preserves cartridge and use my Cricut, along with my February Counterfeit kit! I used the burgundy Swiss Dots Bazzill, black grosgrain ribbon, American Crafts Remarks journaling spot, which I decorated with one of the Prima Say It In Crystals, the word "blackberry", and the berries, which were actually the raspberries in the Preserves cart booklet, but I wanted 2, so that is what I used. I also used the "faux embossed metal technique" for one of the Basic Grey chipboard pieces in my kit, used Basic Grey Painted Brads, and I used the swiss dots Cuttlebug folder to emboss the Blackberries, and inked and coated them with Glossy Accents to get the effect I wanted.
I also used my color kit to color the Grungeboard swirls at the corners of the layout, and added a couple of the Maya Road flower rub-on's to the red leather photo corners.Thanks for looking!


  1. Love this Margie, I can't decide which is best, the layout or the photo's. Just adorable.

  2. What a fun layout! Your berries are great.

  3. I just got that cartridge...I love all of the tags on it. Your berries came out perfect and really add to the page!
