March Counterfeit Kit

Hooray for a new month, and a new inspiration kit over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge!

What a big kit, full of so much fun product!  But what a lot to jam into one photograph!  And I do NOT have the patience to wade through the list of each individual items!
But that's OK.  In the end I began where I often do, by making a list of the main colours and elements in the kit, then  looking for a patterned paper in my stash with similar colours to base my kit around.  I ended up choosing a floral from EP For the Record 2:Documented, and a coordinating blue pattern.

Flowers, birds, butterflies, trees, banners, bright colours?  It's starting to sound like a . . .


In my mix of papers, you'll see some Echo Park, Studio Calico, Bella Carta and a Basic Grey.  In fact, pretty much the same collections you saw in my kit last month, and are likely to see over the next month or two as well until I reduce the stash down again!

I've kept my lettering pretty simple this month, but I'm bound to use my Silhouette and add some stickers over the course of the month . . . .

As well as a full sheet of journalling cards, I've pulled out a mix of cards and tags:

Embellishment time!

A few products that might or might not be inspired by the original kit! I've included all my wood veneers again because I'm loving using them, and those washi tapes because they're new and haven't been used at all!

Some DIY goodies:

It's been a while since I've used white embossed vellum butterflies, so they've fluttered out of their drawer. I also made from fringed trim from tissue paper and played around with some DIY "flair".  More on that in a later post, perhaps?


I've made up one owl, and cut enough pieces to make a few more.  I'm not sure if they'll make it onto any pages, but they'll sure make a cute, quick card!  And the kraft photo corners were another "just because", but now that I've made them, I want to make more in every single colour!

I could have counterfeited a whole lot more, especially banners, but in all honesty I got bored and wanted to get onto making actual pages!  I've got a whole bag of coordinating scraps which might or might not get used as the month progresses:

I'm excited. Are you excited?  I can't wait to see what we all produce with our kits this month!
