It was a good job I'd just bought new sunglasses when I found out about the April kits-to-copy - talk about bright!!!! All four of the March kits from Somni were full of sunshiney colours, flowers, birds and butterflies but I fell in love with the second kit based around Christy Tominlinson's She Art collection by Pink Paislee:
|Somni Kits March 2012 Add-on|
In the end I put based my kit on a mix of Daisy D's and My Mind's Eye Ooh La La papers, substituted red for pink and switched flowers to swirls:
MME Ooh La La Frivolous (with green hexagons on the reverse - see 2nd row)
Dream Street Papers Pompeii Villa
MME Ooh La La Over The Top (with sun burst on the reverse - see 2nd row)
½ sheet green dotty paper from a HOTP Paper Pizazz Christmas Book
¾ sheet 7gypsies Rouge Life
Beacon Hill Stripe, Holly-Pine Bough, Bowdoin Street Scroll from Daisy D's
Kelly Panacci Stonewashed Blue
Red (and green and brown) alpha stickers from Websters Pages Botanical Christmas range
MLS mini alpha stickers in Butter
Pages from a vintage book of fairytales
Various MME Ooh La La die-cuts
3 small and 2 large manilla luggage labels
5 K&Co Travel Smash cards
A selection of metal clips (thanks to Susanne's Christmas swap)
Some apple green baker's twine (simply because it's been sitting there all year and needs to be used!)
Well there are no paper flowers ... I think I'll make them myself using one of the tutorials here on the CKCB (and who knows - perhaps there'll be some new links from Bethany or Meridy in a day or two).
Nor have I included a doily stencil ... I do have a 6x6 Crafter's Workshop swirly template somewhere ...
And there's no cardstock - that would have been another add-on from Somni Kits, but of course for me it's "free" as I'm shopping from my existing stash. Result!!
If you pop over to Jen's place now she'll have another version of a Somni Kit - and of course the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog will be full of inspiration all month long!
