For The Record

Kit detail - buttons - Jimjams
This is my 21st Counterfeit Kit.
The downside of buying a bargain bag-FULL of teal flower buttons is that they take ages to use up!
This month's guest Forger at the CKCB is the lovely Kate Blue.
I've run out of photos to print and scrap.
My craft room is a terrible mess after sorting my kit.
3 weeks ago my 55 bags project stalled - oops!

In the spirit of All Fool's Day, one of these statements isn't quite true ... :-)

Welcome to April's CKCB Master Forger Blog Hop, which started with Queen Kat and brought you to me via Angela.  Our kit to copy this month was Gossamer Blue's March Kit.

Gossamer Blue March Kit - to counterfeit

As is often the case I didn't have any of the exact supplies and this month I decided I would start my counterfeiting by copying the cardstock colours and see what happened.

There's lots of new stash from a recent win from Echo Park's Blog Hop as well as older supplies and scraps; plus this month I have included some stamps as I really must use them more often.

Hmm which one wasn't completely truthful? ;)

Fun seeing the new kit - I've got two pages sitting in various stages on my trolley and am enjoying reading blogs before getting to play today. Must use my stamps more too - been thinking of my crafting area in the next house, hope there are more visual storage possibilities!

looking good. Have fun.

Mary B said...

Nice Kit love the colours. My guess at the April fool incorrect statement is the running out of photos one.

Lesley G said...

Great kit Jemma, can't wait to see what you make with it....

Clearout stalled 3 weeks ago? Hmm, think you may have a number wrong there!!!

Julene Matthews said...

A great kit Jim Jam.I think you would never run out of photos.I certainly don't.
Your kit inspired me to add rhinestones.

I'm with you on not using my stamps nearly enough. Very pretty kit. Love that sticker sheet with that super vintage camera. Have fun creating this month.

Delightful bits in your kit. Reminded me of a few things I might be able to pull into my own kit.

I much prefer your kit to the original, and I'm betting you still have photos to scrap.

Oooh, lovely kit, and I've got that EP collection so I might end up counterfeiting you as much as the original! good luck using up those gorgeous buttons.

Andrea Ockey Parr said...

Ohhhhh! How clever are you to incorporate the reverse side of so many cute papers? Nice! And I simply ADORE the cool color scheme you went with. You always do a great job and I look forward to seeing the amazing things you create!

Ooh. I'm a little bit envious of all the blue in your kit. After month's of putting together counterfeit kits, my blue stash has dwindled to just a few sheets!
