June is here so welcome to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge June kit reveal blog hop.
Hopefully you've reached me from Leslie's wonderful blue box reveal and next up is Lynnette who's sure to delight with her staging! And please don't forget to stop by our wonderful Guest Designer Salla. Oh yes! And of course, you simply must make sure you head over to our returning hero, Lesley, who's come back to help us out over the summer while some of our Master Forgers need to take time out.
Of course, you can head back to the beginning of the hop at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog to make sure you catch everyone on the hop and the full list can be found at the end of this post.
This month, Leslie has challenged us to be inspired by the Hip Kit Club's May kit. There are actually 6 different kit selections to choose from and I took the main kit, the embellishment kit and the pocket page kit to use for my own creation this month.

Now, mine doesn't look much like the original kit elements but let me introduce you to Potpourri!
My list of elements to lift from the original kit was long but these were the items that drove my kit decisions:
- pink, navy, lemon, brights
- dots, stars, floral, triangles
- pocket cards with words, hearts, arrows, cameras
- enamel dots, frames, clips, flairs, sequins, puffy elements
In the end, my papers were not as bright white as I had originally hoped for but I'm happy that I managed to find spots, triangles, the navy stripes and my random paper was the gold foil polka dot paper. I think I'll have fun using these.
I added in way more bits and pieces than I have been the last few months because I noticed that during my LOAD month, I often felt like my kits didn't have enough embellishment choices.
I added a whole lot of different tissue confetti pieces as well as some star sequins and a bunch of die-cut pieces that are both older and newer. Let's see if I use them up.
I only had a few puffy stickers in my stash so in they went. And a selection of pocket cards mostly with cut out elements.
I threw in a whole bunch of frames and some mini cards that I came across.
The London die-cut is one of my random items and a wonderfully thoughtful gift from my good scrappy friend Kathy.
There are actually a few more bits and pieces that I ended up throwing into my box - the last scraps and embellishments from my Scrapabilly June kit which featured lots of pretty watercolour florals and a handful of last scraps from my May Scrapabilly kit.
Wow, long post so well done for reaching the bottom! Here's the full hop list in case you get lost along the way.
