Welcome to June and this month's Counterfeit Kit Challenge hop.
You should have reached me via Julene's blog here and next up is Tara. Of course, we also have an awesome Guest Designer too - Becca! - so make sure you drop by there and say hello. There's a full hop list at the end of the post in case you get lost along the way.
This month, MF Tara chose a kit by Clique Kits International called "Wonderful World" and it's gorgeous.
Here's the main kit:
and the embellishments:
I know it doesn't look anything like the original but I was first inspired by the rainbow paper. I don't have any rainbows in my stash which was a bit disappointing but it reminded me of the Pinkfresh Studio "Just a Little Lovely" collection - both design and colour scheme - and I started from there.
I picked out two sheets from that collection and then turned to Crate Paper for the large spots and mustard tones as well as a floral. From there I moved on to the Echo Park "Let's Travel" and Carta Bella "Summer Market" for some shades and designs that reminded me of the original even though in total, we seem to have moved away somewhat from the colour of the Clique Kits selection.
I wanted a selection of papers that are versatile but retain the spirit of the lighter shades and designs from the original. A more hopeful collection of product to scrap some happy pages. The rainbow design reminded me of the rainbows of hope at the moment and the name "Promise" seemed appropriate.
For the embellishments, I started off with lots of butterflies, labels, tags and flowers from my miscellaneous collection - matching the motifs of the original. I also threw in some cameras because the original has a few of those with the suitcase and travel side of the selection.
I added in a bunch of very used up black alphas but then included some other random, differently-sized older letter sheets too in the hope that I can use them up!
I threw in some puffy stickers from the Summer Market collection, some hearts to match the original kit and a pack of butterflies which would be good to use up.
Last but not least, I included the die-cuts and enamel dots from the Let's Travel collection to give me some variety and to pick up the tags and suitcase theme from the inspiration kit.
It's another big kit which is worrying to be honest as I'm just not creating as much as I have done in the past. But you might have missed the fact that we have an addition to the the family :-) No doubt I'll be making a page - or ten - about her arrival so maybe I'll be inspired to get some more creating done!
Here's the full hop incase you get lost along the way - make sure you say hello to everyone. You don't want to miss out!
