Hello Scrappers, I am back joining in with the October Counterfeit Kit Challenge. This month’s Counterfeit Kit is based upon the kit club, The Wild Hare Kits. The Wild Hare Kits are different from most kits, as you have a very personal experience. They offer a service where you supply information about what you like and don’t like, your favourite brands, colours, etc., and they make you a kit to suit your needs and wants. Wow, it would be like Christmas every time you place an order, a big surprise based on your wish list.
This month the October Counterfeit Kit Challenge is made from the wish list of Mandi Holmes. You can view the unboxing of the kit here. The kit features many colourful elements, textures and interesting patterns.
I was excited to get started on selecting my papers and embellishments for this counterfeit kit. I worked through my paper stash first, luckily for me I had some Simple Stories ‘Domestic Bliss collection which worked beautifully in hitting some of the thematic elements. I purchased the Domestic Bliss supplies last year from Anna’s Craft Cupboard and had never got around to using them. I had planned to use them for an album on our daily life but life got in the way! This collection has made up the majority of my kit with a range of other brands filling the gaps.
First up, these are my papers 1-3 substitutes…
I didn’t have any quote/block paper in the right colourways so I have used some free download 80’s quote cards.
Then, 4-6 papers…
No frame paper for me houses instead and distressed paint instead of stripes. Two flower papers because I couldn’t decide and a straight woodgrain instead of chevron. I have just stocked up on woodgrains from ACC after I discovered in last months CKC that I had run low.
I struggled with the quilt papers, I found one chevron quilt paper and have added in a city map and a geometric design for that pop of colour. Two text papers, I did have the “Change is Good” text paper but only have very small scraps left over 😦
I didn’t have any substitutes for the quote frames and have included more alpha stickers and word stickers to make my own. No puffy stickers, I have included some wood veneers instead which I may colour. I will make my own woodgrain Thicker phrases using my Sizzix.
I am looking forward to getting started as I work through the kit and mini-challenges. If you would like to see what other scrappers have gathered together for their kits make sure you follow the hop blog list on Counterfeit Kit blog.
