April 2023 - Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit reveal and hop

 It's April and that's no joke!

Welcome back to the blog where I'm showcasing the new inspiration kit from the Counterfeit Kit Challenge.

MF Misty is in charge this month and has selected a Scrapbook and Cards Today sampler kit from March 2022 - it's bright and funky and totally up my street!

For more photos of the content of the kit including links to Victoria Calvin's take, head over to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog where Misty has put in a lot of work to give you content lists and photos of the main elements that can be found in it.

And of course, no month is complete without an awesome Guest Designer and I can't believe that Misty was successful in securing my Mint Green Washi Friend (in-joke) Kathy! I've been trying to get her on board for literally years so I'm delighted to see that she is joining us in the Counterfeit Kit Challenge FB community this month as well as sharing over on Instagram (@codakathy). Please, please, please make sure you head over there and say hello to her! We are beyond thrilled to spend April with her!

Right, onto the serious stuff! My kit. I decided to name it "Easygoing" because of the summer vibes it has!

When I saw the kit, I was particularly taken with the bright summer colours and the navy/coral florals. It felt like an interesting combination. It totally reminded me of the Simple Stories summer collection "Sunkissed" and so I started by pulling out those papers, embellishments and washi tapes and went from there.

I added in a few other Simple Stories papers from an older collection "Hello Summer" as well as the two sided spots in red and blue from "Say Cheese Main Street" followed by two sheets of bright, happy Paige Evans from "Go the Scenic Route". There are quite a few papers here for my usual kits but I spy some designs to cut apart or fussy cut and some b-side basics which will be great to use.

As mentioned, I already had the die-cuts and washi from the Sunkissed collection so I added in a bunch of twine in summer colours (thinking I could replicate some of the bows for the original kit) as well as some happy enamel dots.

Extra die-cuts from various bright, colourful collections and some really old, vintage photo frames as well as a sheet of super cute summer puffy stickers from Doodlebug that I just had to have but feel challenged to use!

Of course alphabets in various sizes and colours and some puffy words from PinkFresh Studio to give a full range of possibilities.

And there you have it. IT's a big kit for me these days but I hope to be inspired to pick out some sunny, fun photos to scrap and we will have to see where my inspiration takes me.

Of course, there is a hop so make sure you catch all the stops along the way:
