March Counterfeit Kit Reveal Blog Hop

Wow, where did February go? March already! I almost missed the start of it. Anyhoo for this Months Kit the inspiration is from the Citrus Twist March 2020 Life Crafted Weekender Kit and it is absolutely lovely. The joy this kit brings me when I look at it, it warms my heart. Full of lovely colours and pretty patterns.

The subtle colours with the bright pops of yellow and teal are what gained my attention first when looking at the whole kit. I then noticed the gold and small amounts of boldness in some of the embellishments.

But then looking at the close ups in isolation I saw blues and yellows teamed together.

Pinks and oranges in the next close up!

The cuteness of the diecut daisies and all the labels drew my eye when looking harder at teh embellishments.

Tickets and coloured chipboard, oh what fun. 

Looking at the individual patterned papers I realised that I didn't have any of these sheets at all and when rifling though my stash i realised that I didn't have too much to match the joyful colour scheme either! Oh what was I to do?

Keep looking of coarse. I searched and dug deep in my copious amounts of patterned paper and pulled out yellows first, although my yellows are more of a mustard yellow then the bright sunshine yellow in the original kit. the blue/teal was singing out next so I picked two sheets of it and a floral blue/yellow to kind of replicate the floral pattern in the original. Next I wanted to add a touch of the subtle colour so I popped in the pinks and then two fun pattens the ticket one and the book shelf one. I was now happy with the papers. Next.... onto the embellishments.

Diecuts, tickets, coloured chipboard in bright yellows, teals/blues and light pink is what i chanted to myself over and over as I made a mess on my scrapping table. I really have to remember to sort my stash properly to make this process easier for me in the future.  :) 

So many thing that I pulled to pop into my kit. Lots of spring/summer felling diecuts, bright bold colour chipboard that is screaming to be used.

Oh look at that in the original kit .... gold letters, this means I can add gold accents... doesn't it!! Yeap it does!! So in go the gold thickers and gold frames. Oh joy.

And here is what my whole kit turned out like. I am calling it joyful heart as that is how I felt when I looked at the original Citrus twist kit and mine is warming my heart. I think I am going to have a lot of fun using this kit up.

Your delightfully exuberant description this month is what has made me joyful! What a beautiful collection in your kit. I had the same problems finding this joyful color scheme in my stash, too, which made me a little sad. I guess I need to make a shopping list!

The papers are pretty, but the embellishment assortment is da bomb!
