July's Kit Delivered!

Welcome to another month of kit counterfeiting with the Counterfeit kit Challenge Blog.  This month sees a few changes amongst the Master Forgers: we are losing some old hands, but gaining some new talent, including this month's guest designer, Laura.  She starts our kit reveal hop today and if you hopped here via Dawn you will already know that the luscious kit-to-copy this month is Summer Fun from Crop & Create Delivered.

Summer Fun (Crop & Create Delivered) - Kit to copyThe kit is HUGE and jammed with embellishments so I knew there was no point in me copying each item ... I'd never use it up!

Instead I squinted at the photo and realised that this kit is full of bright colours along with lots of black and white alphas, words, journalling cards etc. So I grabbed a couple of bright coordinating patterns, some coloured pegs, a little yellow twine, some black and white ribbon, a few alphas and some kraft tickets (I'll admit that I could not find the tiny tickets I know are somewhere in my craft supplies ... they have grown legs!) and produced a kit that I was itching to scrap with:

Oh this is a lovely summery kit - hope you find those wandering tickets as they'd go so nicely with this.

Angela Coles said...

one yummy kit there, love your colour choices

Lesley G said...

Not a small kit at all - I bet you find those tickets when you're least looking for them!!! Enjoy :)

Julene Matthews said...

I've lost my tickets too. Maybe they ran away together! LOL
Love all the elements in your kit. It will be so much fun using it all.

My stuff grows legs, too! LOL! Great take on the kit, Jemma! Looking forward to seeing your creations.

Ashley Spiller said...

I too tend to lose stuff in my stash. I know I had camera die cuts for my kit and could not find them anywhere!! Great not-so-small kit! Looking forward to the next 6 months!

Sandie said...

Wow! That is a big kit. I have 2 weekend residentials in coming weeks so it would be a good idea for me to pack some kits ready.

Lisa said...

I threw in ever single ticket I could find. Just because! But I was surprised to find some mini tickets too.

I really like your addition of the B&W elements. I'm certainly missing some great contrast sheets. On my shopping list.

I like your approach to asking your kits. You make it sound so easy. So relaxed. You really are an inspiration.

alexa said...

Hoping you find those tickets because they will be great with your softly bright and summery kit. I always admire you attention to detail in putting these together!

I'll bet your tickets are hanging out on the beach somewhere with my scrolly letters like Dawn put in her kit, lol! Those puppies are definitely buried...
Love your contrast take on this - I had noticed that at first glance but then neglected to play it up in my kit.

Chipper Newman said...

Colouring the pearls is a great idea! I have done that with bling but never thought of pearls. I like your kit.

Maggie said...

The good thing about losing things in your stash is that it's always exciting when you find them again!
Love your kit.
I think I'll be adopting more of a KISS (keep it simple stupid) approach this month, after all it's supposed to be summer!

I have GOT to get me some colored Sharpies! I keep forgetting about this tip. You have a gorgeous kit! I love that Lime Rickey paper.

Heidi said...

I have a sharpie obsession so great to see new ideas with them

Kelly Jean said...
