Goodbye 2014 and Welcome 2015

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new year
For me
And I'm forging kits
I'm forging kits


Welcome to my first Counterfeit Kit for the year 2015!

If you've joined me from Stephanie then you'll already know that the CKCB has chosen the December Kit from the Hip Kit Club to forge:


Coincidentally we chose their kit last January too ... must be something they do well around this time of year!  A little too pale pink and frosty for me ... but some pretty hearts, striking chevrons, a little printed text ... I decided to fake it with some warmer colours in amongst the greys:

Jimjams - Jan 2014 Counterfeit Kit reverse papers
Reverse Patterns (with some extra heart!)
Basic Grey Granola Seed
BG Basics Glossary
Polar Bear Press Majestic Stripes (grey)
PBP Red Ridge Paisley (red)
Engraved Fruit Brick from K&Co
PBP Rustic Retreat Stickers
PBP Blue Ridge Paisley (dark grey)
BG Basics Docket
Jenni Bowlin Studio Element Stickers

Various toning trims from my stash
Various toning buttons from my stash
WRMK Enamel Shapes

Want a quick tutorial on the forging of the hearts paper? ... please come back on the 4th!

In the meantime, please pop over to see what Susanne's been up to.  If you want to visit all the Master Forgers or you want to know more about kit counterfeiting then take a gander at the (new look) Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog today.

Happy New Year !!!

Fascinating to see what you've all done in interpreting the kits - the warm reds look cosy and inviting for this grey time of year. Wishing you all good things for 2015 :).

Lovely kit!

Beverly said...

Love your kit so much more than the original. I am not much of a soft colors or pink person.

Lisa said...

I love how you've based your kits on the greys and made a kit all your own. It's really lovely. And some of those warmer reds have a hint of Marsala in there - Pantone's colour of the year!

Stephanie said...

Love your take on the kit - the warmer colors are really perfect for January!
