July Counterfeit Kit Challenge member blog hop

Welcome to this month's Counterfeit Kit Challenge member blog hop. Delighted to see you here and hope you will find something here to catch your eye.

You should have arrived here from Dawn's blog and I'm last on the hop this time around. But if you've landed here direct, you can get to the beginning of the hop by going back to the Counterfeit blog. It's a big hop this month so be sure to grab your favourite drink and take some time to get inspired.

Anyway, the challenge this month was to get inspired by one of the Master Forgers - go and spend a few minutes on their blogs and see what you can find - there's so much out there you will be brimming with ideas.

Well, in for a penny, in for a pound, I decided to get inspired by ALL of them! Ever the over achiever, I decided to make a set of cards inspired by each of my fellow forgers - that's a great little set of 10 new cards!

Therefore, let me present to you the Master Forger Collection:

Inspired by......


I was inspired by this page of Angela's

I loved all those circles and layers and the line of elements going across and they all worked so well with my summery pie charts and happy papers.


This page of Ashley's

I loved all those strips of washi/paper behind that main photo element on the page. And Ashley has such a relaxed style that it was difficult to limit myself to just one project.


This page of Dawn's

Dawn loves banners. I love banners. This one was a no-brainer! Love those layers and dimension.


This card of Jemma's

Jemma teaches me a lot about simplicity and clean design. Her cards had caught my eye as soon as I saw them and I'd pinned them immediately. I was lucky to have some paper I could cut up for these circles making this card a cinch!


This page of Juneles's

One thing I noticed about Julene's projects was the happy colours and the use of paint and ink with wild abandon. Love me some wild abandon on my projects so I decided to go to town with mists and a spotty mask. I adore this!


This page of Lesley's

I've been noticing a lot of projects with elements going right up the middle recently and Leslie's really appealed. I love that big focus photo on there and I thought it was a good way to get one of my journalling cards to shine. It was also a great way to use up some scraps and make a quick and simple card. I'm definitely going to try this design on a page soon.


The Puppy Love page of Leslie's

I love the way that Leslie isn't afraid of pattern and colour and ink and twine and stuff! Her pages are always quirky and interesting and has elements I want to try out myself. I loved the placement here of the chevron pattern and the block. Very appealing.


This card of Lynette's

Lynette's pages always make me feel like they reflect her personality. They are always sweet and kind and lovely and happy. She is someone I know I'd be friends with in real life as much as I am her online friend. Her Easter card seemed perfect for a bit of mix and match. I love easy designs.


This part of Milissa's page

Milissa is another one who is not afraid of layers and colour. When I saw her layered up page elements I knew I wanted to make something similar and load it onto a card. I love the result and incorporation of lots of little elements. This card makes me happy. Milissa strikes me as a happy person. Perfect.


This card of Stephanie's

I found lots of pretty and lots of sparkle on Stephanie's blog and plenty of projects to really inspire. I decided on a simple but funky card with some signature feminine and sequins to sum up the inspiration from her awesome blog. And her output is pretty amazing. What a great addition to the team.

If you've made it this far, well done and don't forget to leave a message to let me know you were here.  I hope you found something to inspire you and if so, don't forget to let us know over at Mr Linky on the Counterfeit blog.
