When I saw the May Counterfeit Kit Challenge I got very excited, my sort of kits - the colours and the embellishments. I was in heaven. I had a stack of things I had to get done today so I knew I wouldn't get to it until this even. So once the kids were tucked up in bed I headed to my scrapping area to pull my kit. I told myself that I would only do the main kit.....ha! Who was I kidding. The Kits this month are by Leonora at Crafty Templates.
The Main Kit
My Main Kit
These are the papers that I have pulled (sorry for the dark photo it is late at night here)
I know I have almost tripled what was in the original kit, but I did try to stop. I know I used to have the purple bokeh paper but I couldn't find it so I replaced it with the cut apart sheet that does have the purple bokeh on it...you just can't see it in the photo. All the teal colours in the top left of the photo are in there as I couldn't decided which I wanted to replace the teal dotted paper. I also put two pinky/orangy papers in as I had nothing like the paper in the original kit and two black and white papers to make up for the bold black and white paper in the main kit.
These are my embellishments for the main kit - Two sets of chippy alphabets...because one is never enough, paper flowers, flairs, gold thread and gold ribbon. I didn't have any thick black ribbon so I have added the black velvet paper (under everything else) and I plan on cutting it into strips that same thickness of the ribbon. Last but not lease I included the two triangle stamp rollers as I had nothing at all like the "V" brackets around the pink sticker thing.
The Lite Kit
My Lite Kit
I tried to stick to what was in the kit but I couldn't make out what the first bit of paper was so I added in the world paper, I thought it was similar in colour...but in the photo it looks complete different. I added a few different cut a part sheets that I thought would match, a flora paper and some dots and triangle papers. I forgot the alphas!!! I added some coloured chipboard pieces and a metal dangly thing to take the place of the clips. So my Lite Kit is similar but not perfect.
The Original Embellishment Kit
My Embellishment Kit
When I looked at all the embellishments I saw gold, black and splashes of colour so I started riffling thought my stash and grabbed anything similar. I think I really loaded up on the embellishments but I am super excited to be working with this kit.
Now make sure you pop back in to see what I create with my Counterfeit Kit for May.
