The February Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit Reveal Blog Hop


Hi and welcome to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit reveal blog hop!

It's lovely to see you here for our  hop - right here at the beginning of the month  - so that we can show you the kits we've created from the Scrapbook Circle inspiration kits chosen by CKC for this romantic month of February. 

If you've just arrived here, you might want to think about starting at the beginning of the hop either by going back to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge site or by dropping in at this month's wonderful Guest Designer, Brenda Smith at The Imperfect Scrapper. And if you've come via the talented Julie Ann, then you are on the right track. :-) 

We were given two kits to choose from this month, a Valentine themed "You + Me" (here) and a December kit "Note to Self" which rather caught my attention. 


"You + Me"

"Note To Self"
I loved the overall feel of the kit with the strong colours and the focus on journalling with themed papers and plenty of journalling cards. While mine hasn't got quite the same colour tone, I went with something quite strong and most definitely NOT Valentine for my kit which I've called "Record"



I added it lots of bright papers and intend to add in some printed journalling spots - just need to get around to going through my pins over at Pinterest to pick out half a dozen or so to print and add in. I kept away from the more yellow tones of the original kit as I've been working so much with yellow recently, so it will be interesting to see how easy I find it to work with what I have picked out.  (Again, if anyone is interested to know exactly what's in the kit, let me know in the comments and I'll post the list.)

There's quite a lot of older stash in here as well as some items and some of my precious exhange items that I received from the wonderful Helen. I'm excited to get going with it :-)

And you might wonder why I didn't go for the Valentine themed "You + Me" and all I can say is that there might be something else to share later in the month *wink, wink*!

I hope you feel as inspired as I do to get going with your own inspiration kit. Leave me a comment to let me know you were here! I love to hear from you.

Next stop on the blog is the talented Margie (here) and if you'd like the full list of participants, you can find it below. 

Have fun hopping and see you over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog!
