So this is our second blog hop this weekend and if you've arrived here directly, you might want to go back to the beginning of the hop at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge site and work your way through all our posts. If you've arrived here via Libeeti then you are on the right way, so grab a cuppa and have a look at what we have to share with you today.
As you know, today is reveal day for our Counterfeit kits for May and I really hope that you love them as much as we do.
Our inspiration kits (yes, there were 5 to choose from) were from Studio Calico, City of Lights, Sorbonne, Louvre, Versailles and Montmartre and they were gorgeous. Again, totally different to the kits we'd made up for April with the more muted colour palette. And who doesn't love Studio Calico?
I decided to combine two of the add-on kits, Louvre and Versailles and had a lot of fun mixing up my products to come up with my May "Whispers"
I only had one or two of the papers and just tried to match the feel, colours and patterns of the papers and then the embellishments were just mostly matched by item type as I didn't have anything that matched the kits. I would have loved to have used the flowery paper as well as the butterfly design from the original kits so you never know, I might track those down and add them in!
As ever, I reserve the right to add in whatever I choose during the month (!) such as inks, twines or buttons and I have put two Cricut cartridges out to try and encourage me to use them. And the inspiration kit I chose had the most delightful little envelopes by Martha Stewart so I'd like to have a go at making those even though I made up four using doilies as a starting point.
One of the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog visitors commented today that she would like to know how we put the kits together just using a photo as inspiration so I thought I would take some photos of my process so that I can explain what I'm thinking about as I pull my products. I haven't got time to write this up tonight so watch this space over this coming week and I will put up a post for that.
Thanks for dropping by and do leave me a comment to let me know you were here before moving on to the delightful Milissa for her reveal.
