Counterfeit Kit Challenge - kit reveal blog hop

Oh my! It's November and that's really exciting! I love November - it's an attitude thing ;-)

Birthdays, fairy lights, family reunions, parties and winter are all on their way and November is just fabulous!

But no doubt you're here today to join in on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge November blog hop and kit reveal so welcome, welcome, welcome.

I hope you've landed here via Cindy's blog here and next up is Laura over on Instagram here. Both will delight you with their own kits and I happen to know that the whole team were inspired by the original kit I picked out for us all this month, so it's going to be a good hop. Make sure you don't miss anyone (full hop list at the end of the post) This month, I'd also like you to drop by our wonderful Guest Designer Alex's blog here. I was so thrilled she agreed to join us in November and I know you are going to love her too.

Here's the inspiration kit I chose for us and isn't it totally scrummy? Citrus Twist Kits October 2018, "Little Things".

The colours, the designs, the embellies, the look of it all? Citrus Twist Kits really knocked it out of the park this month and there was no way I could resist!

You can find out all about the kit over at the Citrus Twist site here and you'll find lots of detail shots as well as the Pocket Life and Gracebox kits.

Before I explain the details of my kit, let me proudly present.... Scorpio

I started by trying to track down a sheet of October Afternoon paper that I knew I had which was a perfect match to the star paper in the original kit. But of course, I couldn't find it - maybe I've already used it up! Which was a shame.

But while I was looking for it, the constellation paper from Dear Lizzy (far right top) caught my eye and I thought it was perfect - the actual paper is a lot more purple/lavender than it shows up here on my (badly lit) photo. So I started there and then looked around for some of the main colours I saw in the inspiration kit - purple, blue, aqua, pink and a hint of yellow. I can see that my papers are not exactly a close match to the original but I think I've picked out papers that give the same feeling - florals, stars, spots, leafy strands, repeated pattern, blocked patterns, geometric "feel".

The original kit has Pinkfresh Studio so I made sure I picked out a couple of smaller sheets which seemed to give the same feeling and I've mixed in some Crate, Dear Lizzy, Stampin' Up (that gorgeous constellation paper), Shimelle, Webster's Pages, Jen Hadfield, Amy Tangerine - that's quite a lot of different designers!

Then came the fun bit of adding in scrummy embellishment goodies - die-cuts, word stamp, fibre bows, Shimelle paper border, wooden veneers, letters, chipboard, wooden buttons and puffy elements!

I had so much fun looking for, and adding, all these elements in to my kit. I think it's really going to be a good kit to use - what do you think?

I think my kit has turned out more pink and aqua, and less blue and purple, and not so much yellow but that's ok - I think it's rather lovely!

I'll be back on the 6th with a mini kit too because I decided to volunteer for both kits in November (hint that I want to continue getting on with my PL!).

Here's the full blog hop here in case you get lost along the way!

Thanks so much for stopping by! We can't wait to see what you create this month!


  1. Another adorable kit from you.Pretty soft papers and embellishments to match.

  2. So many pretty and fun things in your kit! Don't you just hate it when you know you have a certain paper and then can't find it! I know that happens to me more than I would like! Your kit looks like it will be a great one to play with!

  3. Really pretty kit, with a few vibrant, intense elements and eclectic touches - very Scorpio! Although a little more red would not have gone amiss. (wink, wink)

  4. I love all that aqua and it looks awesome with the warm pink. Snap on the Shimelle washi!!! Thanks so much for asking me this month and being so welcoming! xx

  5. Beautiful kit Lisa and a good choice to counterfeit this month :) I love the way you went about gathering your kit too. Love the small florals you got going on in your kit and those fun tassel bows. Excited to see what you create with the kit :)

  6. Love the colors in this kit, and the wood veneer leaves that match your stickers.

  7. I loved your inspiration choice this month but was surprised to find myself going in a different color direction when I got down to kitting. Glad to see that great minds think alike (hehe) & yet another beautiful pile of fabulous from you. I spy some BG in there as well, I think! Have a heavenly November, and congrats on yet another expected addition to the family this month <3

  8. Lisa: Your November kit of counterfeits is terrific! I like that you've got more of those mint greens/blues compared to most of the other Master Forgers/DT crew. It's a refreshing color to have mixed with the inky blues and purples as well as the pinks and peachy-coral tones. Looks like you've also got a massive amount of fun 'bits and bobs' to be creative with!! Can't wait to see what you create in your birthday month!!!! (Best birthday blessings, Lisa!!!)

  9. Love the inspiration kit and your version as well! Both are filled with such bright happy colors and patterns, it's hard NOTto smile while looking at them!
    I just realized I forgot to name my kit, doh!


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