Cutting & Pasting A Counterfeit Kit

Welcome to August's kit counterfeiting with the Counterfeit kit Challenge Blog.  This month we have former Master Forger Sherri back as our guest designer and you should have reached me via Lynnette if you've followed the hop from the start.  The kit-to-copy this month is Studio Calico's Penny Arcade and its add-ons.

I ended up picking and choosing elements from both the main kit and the Fortune Teller add-on (now sold out) to make a hodge podge kit!


I found dots and stars, clouds and doilies, wooden letters and typewriter key numbers ... orange and teal, yellow and brown, grey and white ...


Supplies:
Echo Park's So Happy Together Road Trip (vehicles on the reverse)
MME Cut & Paste Charm Hey You Route (arrows)
Simple Stories Smarty Pants Stars (bingo cards)
MME Cut & Paste Charm Carefree Mellow (giant chevrons)
MME Cut & Paste Charm Sweet Treat (yellow stripe)
MME Cut & Paste Charm Sweet Spin (bicycles)
BG Marrakech alpha stickers
Polar Bear Press Northern Lights (plain blue)
BG Recess Test Sheet 
MME Cut & Paste Charm Smile Shine (scales)


Various colours of toning cardstock
Vellum circles with punched shapes
Crafters Cords in teal, yellow & cream
Doilies inked in orange, yellow & duck-egg
Jar of wooden scrabble alphas
WRMK orange floral washi
Crate Paper Boys Rule Star 4x6 Card
Sn@p! Typset alpha stickers
Craftwork Cards Typewriter Keys clear stamps
BG laser cut doilies
Crate Paper Boys Rule Starry vellum
A stamp punch

I'm looking forward to using the vellum shapes ... nice to get some use out of my old punches.  What old tools and supplies can you drag out of hibernation this month?  Let's see whether Bethany is using old or new supplies ... she's next on our hop this month (the complete list is published here on the CKCB).  Happy hopping!
