May The Kit Be With You

Jimjams - May CKCB Kit detail
Another month, another kit to copy.  Welcome to May's Master Forger Blog Hop ... did you reach me from Angela, via our Guest Forger Laura?  If not, the start of the hop is published on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog today.

This month we're starting with Paper Camellia's April Kit plus their add-ons: lots of travelly, mappy, transporty papers and embellishments, plenty of stars, cameras and alpha stickers ...

Jimjams - May CKCB Kit to Copy - Paper Camellia April 2014

and ...

what's this?

Some papers I actually own?!?!

I was so pleased to spot some Crate Paper Boys Rule designs in the kits-to-copy: S  J Crafts sent me quite a few bits of the collection to play with (see my pages here and here) and the remaining goodies made a great starting point to my counterfeit kit.  I added plenty of alpha stickers,  stars, travel cards from Simple Stories, bicycles from Cosmo Crickets's Boyfriend collection scraps and some camera washi tape.

The fibres are a completely random addition!  They have been languishing in a drawer for too many years and I'm starting a new trend!!          ;-D
Or I will be if enough of you also dig out your unloved fibres and join in!

Julene is next on the tour for scrappy kit inspiration, but you might also like to stop by S J Crafts Blog for a fun challenge here to get you scrapping with your kit (and you'll also see a page I made for them with an entirely different kit).

A lovely kit Jemma which isn't as far from the original as you think!
Look forward to seeing what you do with those fibres :)

mandysea said...

It's fabulous! Oh my, those fibres are a blast from the past... I know I've some 'somewhere'!!! The things we forget we've got! That's why I love CKC!

Sian said...

I think with those bicycles you have a great flavour of the original kit. Plus you win the prize for best Post Title

Laura said...

Love the flair you've included.
Hmm, fibres... no thanks, I'll stick with ribbon I think!

Chidkid said...

Love the kit.Not sure about re-instating fibres though Jemma! Can't wait to get home to have a play

Lisa said...

I also think it's not as far from the original as you think :-) Has a real Jemma feel to it too. As for the fibres, I'll reserve judgement. I have a pile from BasicGrey that I'd love to use - loved them so much at the time. You show me some good uses for them and I'll consider dragging mine out

Sassy Breese said...

Hooray for fibers! Always up for a bit of back stitching, let us see what else can be done with them. I pared mine down, a while back, to the ones I truly love.

Tina Campbell said...

Love the kit and what you did with it. I agree it is all about travel this kit :)

Sandie said...

That's my kind of kit Jemma, love travel themes and those colours. Can't wait to see what you make with them. ONE of these days I'm going to play along - the idea of counterfeiting really appeals to me.
I got my fibres out last week and shook the dust off. Great minds think a like!

Julene Matthews said...

Jemma I love your simple stories cards. The fibres will be nice to see after years without using any.Have fun using your kit.

Texas Cattlewoman said...

Oh my looking at the fibers, yarn twine is pure eye candy! I love love the papers you chose for the kit! Now to see your beautiful creations.

LCSmithSAVED said...

Haven't seen my fibers in years, but I've still got 'em! I think I will take you up on that when the weather turns cooler as they seem to suit that better...
I think you stayed right on target with the kit, except of course for the pink :~)

Stephanie said...

Fantastic kit Jemma - I am loving all that Crate Paper goodness. *So* looking forward to seeing your creations this month!

Tara O said...

Love LOVE this. I miss having the time to play along with CKC...sigh. I'm hoping to change this over the summer!

Angela Coles said...

fabulous looking kit. looking forward to seeing how you use those fibres.

Sue Althouse said...

What a great kit! I do love it when I own at least something in my stash from the online kit to start building my own.

nomorelittlemonkeys said...

Gorgeous take on the original! I love all the boy themed product you chose!

Clair said...

Lisa is right, this kit really has a 'Jemma' feel to it. I'd be able to pick out your kits in a Master Forger's line up!

Love the addition of the fibres! Can't wait to catch up and see what you've been making x
