Peachy Sweet Counterfeit Kit


Time to reveal another kit that's been counterfeited.  This month at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog we are being sponsored by the lovely Sherri (a fellow Master Forger) and her Etsy Shop - and this month's kit to copy is the September 2010 Kit from the Sweet Peach Crop Shop
There were 2 kits on offer - a main kit and a themed add-on kit plus a couple of paper and embellishment add-ons.  I loved the main, but in the end I chose the "Juicy" themed kit to counterfeit.

Sweet Peach Crop Shop's Juicy Themed Add-on from September 2010
As usual, I have almost zero of the supplies in this kit [are we completely out of touch with US manufacturers here in the UK?  No!  It's probably just me as I tend to shop in the sales so my stash is out of date even when it's new!] and I had to put my thinking cap on:

The kit-to-copy features dots, checks, stripes, yellows, greens and browns ... so I dug out some dotty,  checked and striped paper from a My Mind's Eye "Ooh La La" collection pack that I won last year and which features lots of green and yellow.  I knew I had some ancient ruler paper too.  I didn't have any corrugated alphas, so I substituted some swirly textured cardstock and I'll cut my own alphas with some Sizzlits dies.  Then I rooted through the rest of my papers to add some more counterfeit stash.

On the embellishment side, the kit-to-copy has some chipboard tags, lots of journalling tags, some pearls (at last something I can match exactly), some ribbon and bottle-caps ... bottle-caps?!  Never quite understood the need to scrap with them myself?! So I'll be using buttons instead!


Cardstock: 1 sheet each of white, duck-egg, aquamarine, brown, mustard cardstock, ⅔ sheet Chandler Dotted Swiss and 1 sheet of brown swirly embossed Bazzill

Papers:
Simply Sweet (green pattern reverse - see below), Get in Line (striped on reverse- see below) from MME
2 x ⅓ sheet Hannah Blue & Ivory & 1 sheet Folded Wooden Tape Measures (both by K&Co)
Accessory Sheet For Him from MME's Ooh La La Collection
Ancient from Basic Grey's Archaic Collection
Fall Festival Cocoa & Primrose Damask (both by Bo Bunny Press)
the postcard reverse side of {Miss}fit Tough by Dream Street Papers


Embellishments:
A selection of buttons from my stash
Beige & Brown pearl dots
Sei Poppy Alphabet Stickers
Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type alphas
MLS Butter Mini Alphabet stickers
Maya Road chipboard tickets
Some green lace, brown grossgrain and yellow ribbon 

And there you have it - a kit that I will use which has cost me exactly ZERO new money - can't wait to show you what I make with it now!

Now there's a kit I really like! It would match perfectly with what I have picked out for my LSNED tags..

If you ever feel like treating yourself, I can highly recommend Sweet Peach. I bought one last year and the customer service was superb

It's not just you - though I do have some from this kit for a change! My new stuff is often old stuff too. I think it's also the price difference between the US and here - things there seem so much cheaper. I love seeing all the different interpretations and your kit is lovely - I prefer your colour tones!

Love the colors and I agree I did not have much in the kits and I am in the US! It is all about making it work for you! I love the bottlecaps, but for home decor/altering!

Very pretty kit - I noticed you went light on the embellishments too. It makes a nice change of pace.

Lisa said...

now I'm jealous! this is gorgeous! I love the ooo la la paper and here it is just perfect! just my kind of colours (when I'm not doing all pink that is!)

Denise said...

Absolutley gorgeous - perfect colours

Beverly said...

well done, I am always so impressed when you do your counterfeit post, so resourceful :)

alexa said...

These colours all work so beautifully together and have a lovely end of summer/start of autumn feel ...

Ali said...

gorgeous colours, love how you have made so many 'matches' to keep the feel of the kit.

I like all of the warm colors and your green lace is great.

I'm in the US and didn't have a single bit of this kit, either! There's just so much stuff out there to choose from. Love your kits - hope you enjoy a creative month!

Sherri Thompson said...

What a beautiful fall kit, Jemma! I actually like yours much more than the inpiration kit-I may have to counterfeit you :)

Melissa said...

Great job pulling your kit together - you are going to have some fun this month! I love the buttons.

redmom said...

Your kit is beautiful, I love the colors and tones you picked! I can't wait to see what you do with this.

Love the deep, rich colors of your kit! So very fall-ish!

Missus Wookie said...

Great kit - love me some striped paper!

Oh and the UK being out of date does work in our favour occasionally. Had a Secret Sister in the US who was bemoaning no one had a certain BG line.... I asked on UKS and yep could buy it to mail back to the US. She was astonished ;)
