Here is my June CKC kit, I’m a little behind this month with the sharing. I unexpectedly had family visit for a few days and though I did get some scrapping done, I am behind with my blogging.
So, this month’s Counterfeit Kit Challenge inspiration is another HipKit Club kit from the month of May 2019. I am a big fan of the HipKit Club team and their amazing creativity, so was excited to pull my own similar kit together. I did already have a few of the papers in their kit and some similar ones from other collections which I had only just purchased, which made putting this kit together much easier.
My kit papers are a little brighter than the original kit, though I have included similar patterns and motifs. I have included several papers from the Horizon, Pink Paislee papers. A few American Crafts papers, including a cut file sheet. A couple of black and white prints from the CraftersChoice Galaxy paper pad, a Dear Lizzy unicorn paper and an old TLC (Topline Creations) paper.
For embellishments, I went through my bowl which sits on my desk, an idea that I got from Janet Madison (RTS Scrapbooking). Every time I scrap I add leftover bits and pieces of embellishments to the bowl which leaves me with a great bowl of goodies to rummage through for the next project. This time I found lots of similar motifs to the HipKit Club kit, some flowers, a cat, bows, quotes, etc., from a range of different companies.
I also include a cut apart sheet from American Crafts to use for embellishments and a love heart cut file sheet, which I had just purchased with my birthday voucher.
For mixed media, I chose three of the Tim Holtz Oxide Distress inks, a yellow -mustard seed (one of my favourites), a blue-chipped sapphire and a pink-spun sugar. I picked out three stencils to use, one is a gorgeous grunge stencil from Studio Light, another is a floral by Vicki Boutin and a strip from WMK.
Overall, I love how bright and colourful my kit is and I can’t wait to get working with it. I have a few layouts planned already and am excited to use the cut file sheet, something I have never done before! I have always thought it was too much work and messing around, filling all those empty spaces with little bits of paper.
I will be sharing my layouts on the CKC blog, monthly link up and on their FB group. If you are joining in with this months CKC please do share your creations on both sites.
