February 2015 Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop

Have we got a kit for you to copy!!  If you’ve just come from Jemma‘s blog, then you know the kit (swoon!) that has been chosen as this month’s inspiration kit

Peek: This month’s inspiration kit – Across the Miles – from – July 2014 Kit Club - Across The Miles

Plan: I have full calendar of activities already planned for February, the shortest month of the year, so I proposed compiling a small kit.  Then I got tied into both the travel and the love themes represented there, and I dropped that proposition.  It should come as no surprise, as I didn’t stick to last month’s plan either. Remember the Cricut cartridge I was supposed to include each month.  This month stamps are standing in as a substitute because I didn’t have time to actually use the Cricut last month.  So let’s just say it will be “traveling forward” to February’s kit so it can get a little love.

I feel like I was able to come up with suitable stand-ins for everything in the kit.  For that iconic gold map paper – I substituted a couple of clear map transparencies – one in gold and one in white.  Overall my kit has a wider range of colors than the original (imagine that, more color from moi), but my pattern matching was spot on:  bokeh, clouds, text, gold bursts, stripes, arrows, wood grain.  It is all there.

Presenting: Can I get a little swoon for this?

  1. lots of colour but lots of prettiness too. This is a kit that would inspire me in my scrapbooking filled month (LOAD starts today!). Really like the bold colours and I agree that you are pretty true to the original. Love it! And I love that you have intentions but are fully prepared to head off in your own direction! Here's to individuality :-)

  2. Love how you put stamps and punches in your kit too. I always forget about things like that.
    A beautiful kit to slot into those spare 5 minutes in your busy February

  3. So loving what you put together!!!!!!

  4. Looks like a great kit you put together! I like colour too! Look forward to seeing what you create with your goodies.

  5. Such a cheery lot. Sets the mood for some happy scrapping.

  6. Love the addition of the punches-I'll have to rememberthat for my next kit! Love the addition of the hot pink!

  7. That gold map paper in the original kit is amazing. Great matches in your own kit. Love the bitty banner punch. So useful. I made a Valentine card using it, just last week.

  8. Beautiful kit! Love the paper choices and can't wait to see what you do with the SU bitty banner punch (I got the punch in a secret santa gift this Christmas) I have yet to use mine :) Yep that darn cricut cartridge :) I didn't have a chance to use mine last month neither! But props to Cindy she did great with her's

  9. Oooooooh, how lovely! The little flowers and flairs are gorgeous! I have an Eiffel tower stamp too, your kit reminded me. Enjoy using the kit.

  10. Swoon, indeed! A vibrant kit with the addition of those happy flowers and cloud paper. Ahhh...I feel like a lady of leisure! Have fun scrapping!

  11. I always love your counterfeit kits. They turn out wonderfully. I can't wait to see what you make with it.

  12. What a great interpretation of the kit! Love that you've included stamps (great Eiffel!) and punches! this is bright and happy to play in!

  13. A brilliant kit - very you. Had to laugh at the way your plans got scuppered as you chose your stash - I've given up having plans as they never work out!

  14. Nice kit! Love how full and colorful it is!! Glad you kept adding on because I'm confident that you are going to be motivated to create a lot of wonderful projects with that marvelous collection -- looking forward to it!

  15. Dropping in to say Hi & thanks for leaving a comment on my blog post. Tea & cake in the Library was just a perfect thing to do between cutting and stitching paper. The kit looks exciting!

  16. Awesome kit, you definitely have a lot to work with!

  17. As someone really new to counterfeiting kits, I really appreciate your thorough explanation and the list of your kit contents. It looks great and I'm looking forward to seeing what you make with it.

  18. Ooooh, so pretty and so happy! Love how you've included the stamps.
