Miles Away From The Original?

Scrapbook.com Across The Miles to be counterfeitedWelcome to another month of kit counterfeiting with the Counterfeit kit Challenge Blog.  This month we have Doris as our guest designer and you should have reached me via Stephanie if you've followed the hop from the start.  We're all making our own versions of Scrapbook.com's "Across The Miles" Kit

I thought I could match the papers with yellow diagonal stripes and multi-coloured tiny arrows ... and dived into my stash!  No fancy vellums or gold foiled papers there, but I did find some flair, some sequins and  travel themed items ... and so my counterfeit kit was born:

Jimjams - Feb 2015 Counterfeit Kit

Supplies:
Crate Paper Boys Rule Beep Beep, Cool Kid , Mix Tape (named for the "other" sides!
6x6 24/Seven Good Stuff (typewriter numerals)
6x6 Urban Traveller Jet Set (map)
6x6 Urban Traveller Boarding Pass (travel labels)
CP Boys Rule Accent Stickers

Jimjams - February 2015 Counterfeit Kit embellishments

American Crafts wood veneer stars
Black and yellow sequins (circa 2002)
Tiny red star buttons
Various flair buttons from my stash

Jimjams - February 2015 Counterfeit Kit accent cards

Various accent cards (mostly left over from last May's kit so I'm determined to use them up)
We R Memory Keepers Enamel Shapes

As usual I'll add cardstock as I go along and may dig out some more coloured alphas from Simple Stories (when I locate them in my messy craftroom).

I'm not a million miles away from the original kit but they're probably second cousins once removed rather than siblings!  Let's see if Susanne has a closer counterfeit today.

Ha ha on your comment notice here!

Love this kit. It's SO you! I love how you stay so very true to your scrapbooking style and make your kits so that they work for you but I can always see the original inspiration in there. Love that bold diagonal and travel items are my nemesis! I HAVE to have them but use them sparingly! I too have lots in my kit this month and will be looking to you to see how you incorporate them into your creations.

I certainly wouldn't say they were miles apart. I can totally see the resemblance!
Sequins and stars - ready to play on Saturday!

Nice job, the touches of black and fun arrows really caught my eye. This is will fun to scrap with, me thinks.

Tina Campbell said...

I love the kit so nice to see a U turn from a regular kit :) That is what I really like about the forgeries just each is so different and unique in it's own way :) Have fun with it :)

I would say they are most certainly related! Loving that bold arrow paper...reminds me of a subway station. Great kit! Happy Scrapping!

Julia said...

Very nice kit! I love how you pulled elements from a previous kit to use up. I think I may use that strategy also :)

Susan said...

I definitely see the connection between your kit and the inspiration - I think you really captured the "feel" of it!

Julie H said...

Your kit looks lovely, who cares how close it looks to the original or not?

Missus Wookie said...

Oh I like those colours and hear you on wanting to use up cards left over from a kit last year...

Sandie said...

That's a lovely kit Jemma, I could have fun with that.
You have also inspired me to get out some stash and make some kits myself for some books I have planned. It will save me rifling through everything and creating such a mess!

Like your relationship analogy :). I see lots of resemblances - diagnonals, stripes, colours ... Going to have lots of uses, I think.

Oh, I think they are siblings for sure :) And thanks for the note about WV and the Robot, they are driving me bonkers showing up EVERYwhere, I didn't realize I could ignore them1
