Buttercup | January Counterfeit Kit

Saturday, January 19, 2019


One of the fun things I've been wanting to participate in again lately is Counterfeit Kit Challenge.  Much thanks to my friend Doreena (who was sharing her made-up kits + projects using the challenges each month), I decided to play along this month.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, the concept is very simple: create a scrapbook kit each month using only supplies in your own craft stash, inspired by the kit they choose for that month's inspiration. In the scrapbooking industry, so often we are focused on the latest + greatest products that we forget all the things we already have in our stash that we loved at one point.

So here is a look at this month's inspiration kit: from their website:
 
And here's the products I chose from my own craft stash + a list of what I included:


my "papers" for the kit.
 
my embellishments for the kit.
I have to say, I loved loved loved this month's inspiration kit: the colors, the florals, the bicycle + tags/labels. It was all sooo cute and inspiring!

Now, it's not exactly the same, but that is the beauty of this challenge: you take the inspiration and use your imagination + creative mind to make it yours! My "papers" are all Project Life cards.

So there you have it! This was super fun to put together and I really loved "shopping my craft stash."


And here's a peek at something I already created with the kit, which I will share manana!

  1. I love your kit..it truly resembles the original so much (and the original is really cute)! Thanks for the shout-out, though unfortunately I didn't play this month, though I guess the month isn't over so I still could... hmmmm... maybe a mini-kit is in my cards (see what I did there?) Have fun! Looking forward to your projects!
