May 2019 Counterfeit Kit Challenge

Good morning, it’s May! The busy and creative month for scrapbook enthusiasts everywhere and…

Happy National Scrapbook Day (NSD), weekend, week or month!

Hurray, there is so many challenges and fun events happening around the World. The Counterfeit Kit Challenge is off and racing for this month and they have collaborated with the Bash Your Stash FB group to celebrate NSD. Over three days there will be challenges, support videos and lots of fun, from the 3rd-5th of May (for us Aussies that means the 4th-6th). Plus…

IMG_7232I am the May CKC Guest Designer! Please, join in with all the fun and games this month and share all your creativity online.

This month’s inspiration kit has been chosen from the My Creative Scrapbook kit club, using their March 2019 kit. It is a colourful and fun kit made up from the Jen Hadfield “Chasing Adventures” collection. There are so many motifs and themes running through this collection which gives us loads of options when it comes to selecting papers and embellishments to create our own kits. I started by investigating the whole collection to get a good idea of what all the papers looked like on both sides and what motifs were included. You can check out the collection here and this websiteย shows the individual pages.

Here is what I selected for my CKC kit…


I ended up with a very large kit, as I looked for papers and cardstock with similar colours, patterns and motifs to the “Chasing Adventures” collection. I struggled to find the right greens and blues in my stock, and the floral I found has a dark navy background.

Here are my papers…




In the kit, there are some papers which have pocket card print pages. I looked for pages with similar motifs to the collection in general.

With embellishments, I focused on motif and theme. Jen Hadfield’s collection has a range of different stickers with images and text, and some have foil. I searched through all my colour sorted image diecuts, pocket cards and text diecuts, as I don’t usually use/purchase stickers, so I only have a few.

I also included some coloured cardstock in my kit to mount photos and use as backgrounds. I will be using white cardstock and some mixed media products to vamp things up, I love getting messy with ink and paint.

I am very happy with my final kit, there are loads of ideas I have for using this kit. I feel that is is very vibrant and fun and I am looking forward to participating in this month’s CKC challenges.

    1. Hi Lisa, Thank you for the lovely comment. I got a little carried away with so many patterns, colours and motifs to choose from. The plane paper is also from the Shimelle ‘Go Now Go’collection, I also used quite a few papers from the DCWV ‘Spring Bloom’paper pad. A lot of the primary coloured patterned papers are from years ago and the now defunct Topline Creations company. I can’t wait to get stuck in to creating some layouts and seeing what you and everyone else creates.


  4. thanks for posting the instructions for the comments!! I love your paper dolls, absolutely perfect on your layouts!
