If you are working your way through the blog hop and are here courtesy of the delightful Libeeti then you are most certainly heading in the right direction. If you've come here direct, might I suggest you go back to the beginning of the hop (Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog here) so that you can catch all that scrummy inspiration.
Because we have a winner of a kit this month :-) and I don't want you to miss out.
We were asked to vote for our favourite kit this month and I have to say that when I saw Chasing Pavements by Scraptastic I knew that was the one for me. And I was delighted to see that it had won. Now, I understand it might be a bit limited in colours for some of you and not pink enough for others (me included ha ha) but let those colours and designs sink in a bit and I'm sure you will start to see the potential. I especially loved the simpler colour range after so much variety over the last few months and appreciated that it wasn't a lovey dovey kit. I hardly make any Valentine layouts and this kit will be perfect for all sorts of non-romantic or non-girlie topics. But you never know, I might even go for the feminine pages to see if I can pull it off.
So here is the inspiration kit we were given.
And this is the kit I created.
So different from the last few kits I've made so I can't wait to delve into it and am sure that I will get lots and lots of projects from it.
It's a huge kit, much larger than usual but as I started pulling stuff, it just didn't stop. And there's lots of older stuff in there which will be great if they get cut into. We will see how that goes.
As always, I started with some cardstock but I expect that I will be adding in more as the month goes on. I've just run out of white and kraft so this was the last sheet I had.
Then I moved onto papers selecting several for the colours they had and several more for the designs which I tried to match up to the inspiration kit. There's a lot more papers than in the original kit and many of these sheets have already been started.
Once I got to the embellies, I started by picking out some of the same types of embellies as the inspiration kit and then just carried on adding and adding until I figured there was enough. I've already mentioned that I have no problems adding in extra items (as if I need it!) throughout the month and I haven't included buttons for example so these will probably work their way in during the month.
I say this far too often, but I'm rather in love with my kit. I am itching to get creating. Watch this space.
It's time now for you to head down under to the wonderful Lisa J (did you see her kit last month? Just gorgeous!) And here is the full list for the hop in case you get lost along the way:
