Forging Behind

Here it is - better late than never - July's Counterfeit Kit. Again I have used my own colours and adapted the travel theme to suit my stash/photos as I have found that works better for me when actually using the kits!

Ribbon-centric embellies this month
Polkadot Whimsy's Cape Cod Kit
July 2010
In any case, I had nothing that directly matched the kit-to-copy (the CKCB went back to Polkadot Whimsy's July 2010 kit for inspiration), so I started by looking through my papers for small geometric shapes - choosing the Paper Salon paper and matching alpha stickers.  I then stumbled across a part used prize kit containing a Daisy Bucket collection, blooms, and ribbon which toned in nicely.  As I have some photos in mind for this kit I chose was some bicycle paper from Basic Grey to replace the jet planes of the kit-to-copy.  Though not shown in this picture, there were loads of fun trims, so I, too, went a bit mad with them!


So there it is - not a counterfeit that would fool anyone, but hopefully a kit that I will use - starting tonight when my friends on UKS are hosting a little challenge evening to get us scrapping!

Great kit, lots of fun things to play with. I try to match my kits to my photos too, so I will use it!

Clair said...

I'm always inspired by the way that you tailor your kits to suit your own style of scrapping. Looking forward to seeing your makes :)

I still have some of that Daisy Bucket paper, and loved the texture of it! I'm so glad you were able to get your kit together! It looks fab, and I'm sure you will do something amazing with it!

I love your kit. The colors are great and the best thing is you used your stash and created something that you could scrap. I need to learn to step out of the box a little bit. Can't wait to see your layouts.

I still have an entire box of those MM rubons from my working in scrapping days... really ought to dig 'em out more. I like the colours and am tempted by the evening of scrapping inspiration idea. You might get me to log into UKS again! :)

What a classy kit! It's a good idea to match your colours to your photos - I may be doing that next time too!

Loving your kit and all those beautiful greens. I'm fascinated by the alpha rubons. That looks like something I need to buy :)

Linda said...

I really like your kit and all the lovely greens. I am using a pack of MM rub ons in my kit too.

I love all the greens! I too pull photos before I do my kits, that way I will USE them and not just kit them up!

Kim Strother said...

I have been pulling photos along with my kit too. But for some reason this month I didn't do that (I think its because I need to get some new photos printed) so we will see how that effect me this month! I love the greens in your kit!

Kim Strother said...

Hey I just realized I used the same BG bicycle paper last month. I love that paper!

Maria Ontiveros said...

Great job! I thought about tossing the very same rubons into my kit this month.
