Counterfeit Kit Challenge January 2019 kit reveal blog hop

Welcome 2019 
and welcome to each of you on this bright and fresh 1st January!

I'm excited to kick off the new year with a brand new Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit to get the inspiration started!

You should have reached me from the ever delightful Leslie today and next up is prolifically creative Lori but you can find the full list at the end of the post if you need it! Don't forget to check out our wonderful Guest Designer, Meagan Johnson too. We are thrilled to have her this month and she will wow you with her layouts for sure so check out her blog or Instagram too. 

Master Forger Susan has picked out a Felicity Jane kit for us the month to calm things down a little after all the hectic of the festive season. 

You can find all the details on the "Hannah" kit here: https://felicityjane.com/collections/hannah - isn't it lovely? Look at all those gorgeous shades of grey, blue and pink - *sigh*!

This is where the inspiration took me. May I present "Sigh".

I started off by going through some of my older Christmas kits if you can believe it and took out papers in the colours - grey, white, black, blues and pinks - that reminded me of the original kit as well as matching up some of the core patterns - woodgrain, spots, diamonds and stripes. I didn't have any suitable floral so this outline camera print is a good substitute. The number paper is a replacement for the word paper. I seem to have lost some of the deeper colours from the inspiration kit but love the mix that I have put together.

Puffy alphas, glitter hearts, tags and some bits and pieces - including a few random die cuts pieces that are left over from my Christmas tag extravaganza - that reminded me of the colours or elements of the Felicity Jane original. I also included a pocket page kit that I found from Studio Calico that had a lot of the same colours - I thought it might be useful if I did some of my Project Life.

Lots of small labels, word stickers, stars in a matching colour, circles die cut from papers with the same tones, a bunch of washi tape in blacks, greys and golds and two sets of Shimelle stamps from the last two years of Christmas kits. Even if I don't make Christmas pages, there are plenty of words and elements in the sets which could be used - I need to remind myself to get stamping more often.

The black and white puffy elements also reminded me of the Felicity Jane kit.

All in all, it's an interesting kit to start the year and I hope I get to make some pages in the days to come. You never know, I might even have a go at forging one or two of the items in the inspiration kit  ;-) 

Thanks for joining me today. Here's the full blog hop list so do make sure you hop along to see everyone's take on the kits. There's always so much inspiration to be found in how each of us interpreted the original kit for our own style!

  1. So in love!! Your kit makes me want to redo mine!! Can’t wait to see what you make this month.

  2. I noticed the stamp sets right away. A beautifully serene kit that wonderfully captures the feel of the original without being literal. You are so inspiring!

  3. Lovely kit, with a languid feel that makes me want to sigh and then push pretty papers around in a very leisurely fashion. I love that you are still sticking with the 1 word kit titles - I bet this can be a bit of a challenge this many kits into the challenge. Also, what font is that you used for the word Sign - love the S!

  4. I love your pretty and pastel interpretation! And while I never would have thought of scrapping Christmas with this kit, I can definitely see how the sugarplum feel of your kit would definitely work well with holiday scrapbooking. You've chosen some gorgeous embellishments, too!

  5. A beautiful soft pastel kit Lisa. Looking forward to seeing your creations.

  6. I adore this version of the kit! So soft and feminine. It feels like a breath of fresh air ❤

  7. Beautiful kit, love the lighter version. So love your circle die cuts.

  8. Lovely kit Lisa :) It makes me Sigh tooo :)

  9. Love your kit, great job. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

  10. I love that you called it 'Sigh!' A sense of visual relaxation, with those soft greys and wood tones and little pops of fresh lemony green. Hope you really enjoy using it.

  11. Lisa: your January kit is marvelous!!! The contrast of the very light tones and the darker elements will be interesting creatively. I can't wait to see how you tackle this kit!


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time. <3 <3 <3
