Bustin' Out My June Kit

Welcome to another month of kit counterfeiting with the Counterfeit kit Challenge Blog.  Having started last month's reveal, I'm bringing up the rear this time - so you should have seen everyone else's efforts already ... including our Guest Designer Salla ... and found my blog via the lovely Susanne.  If so, you'll have seen loads of photos of the Kit-to-Copy, the Hip Kit Club May 2016 Kit and all the add-ons and extras.

June K2C - Hip Kit Club May 2016Whenever I start counterfeiting, I look to see if I have anything (similar) from the original kit.   
Yes - I had some Jillibean Soup mini placemats from the PL Kit and some wood veneers from the main.
The patterns ar ethe next pointer for forgery:  words on a page ... dots ... patterned stripes ... florals ... triangles ...
Yes - I had some bright text-covered paper, loads of dotty patterns, some navy striped paper I could embellish, some matching florals and some triangular brads!
After that I add to what I've already selected, keeping an  eye on the colours ... there was plenty of pink in last month's kit, so this time I concentrated on the turquoise!  Here's my mini-kit:

June Counterfeit Kit - Jimjams

June Counterfeit Kit Reverse papers - JimjamsFreeze Frame (frames), Who's To Say (floral), Chevron/Teal (chevron) from SS DIY Boutique
Some polka dot paper from a giveaway pile
6x6 Sheets of MME Now & Then Izzy paper Smart/Boys (keys) and Frolic/Happenings (orange pattern) which is now a forgery of a Hip Kit Club Exclusive (see Forgeries on the Fourth for details)
Jillibean Soup Mini Placemats - Smile
Triangular brads in various colours
Navy/white arrow washi tape
KI Memories Softies (random extra - to use them up!)
Creative Memories Stencil alpha stickers
Gin XCollege Navy and Chotchkie White rub-on alphas
Wood veneers from my stash

Total effect ... not a lot like the original, but definitely usable, and some seriously old stash busted out of storage!!

The full list of Master Forgeries is available on the CKCB today if you fancy joining in.

I'm always interested to see how you avoid the pink! I like your navy and cream version of black and white stripe.

I love how you take the original and make it all your own. This is great and I can see the pages you'll be creating with your kit in my mind! So you! Great avoidance of the pink and the strip is lovely. I need to add in veneers by the look of it - they are always so super useful. Great kit this month Jemma!

You do come up with the most original takes on the inspiration, always adding in something you make me wish I had. Like this month, those photo corners are calling my name. Fabulous kit, Jemma!

Fab! (Mea culpa on the pink)
Bonus points for OLD STASH, which will come in handy later... ;)

I love that you brought out more blue in your kit! It's my favorite color. Your kit is awesome and should help you get some GREAT LO's accomplished this month!

Kelly Sroka said...

Very pretty! I love the floral and polka-dot papers!

Julene Matthews said...

More navy, less pink (ugh!).LOL This kit looks beautiful and that tiny floral gives it yet another dimension too.

I absolutely love your mini kit and none of it looks old at all.
Love that wordy paper - look forward to seeing what you create with it on Saturday!

Tina Campbell said...

Such a sweet kit and love the blues you have in it too :) Some fun die cuts I spy too :) Really need to play with the silhouette this month :) Looking forward to seeing what you do with the busy word paper as I have one in my kit too

Susan said...

Great job on breaking down the inspiration pieces and adding in what you like and know you will use. I like that you focused on the blues - and that navy arrow washi tape is just lovely. I spy some fun wood veneer pieces too.

Cleverly done on the forgery - These ideas are so simple but easily forgotten!

Chidkid said...

Always fun to see your kit - lots of inspiration there.

It may be mini...but this kit has everything you need to create some great pages. I'm a huge fan of navy so this works for me. Lovely!
