April 2016 Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop

Hello, and welcome to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge reveal blog hop.


Start: The kit we are counterfeiting this month comes from C’est Magnifique kits, that I thought must certainly be over in Europe, but it turns out they are in Tennessee. Who knew?  We are using their February kit called Enchanted Garden.

Style: Sweet, romantic, floral, vintage.

But, at first, all I could see were those Prima flowers.  I have lots of Prima flowers, I rarely use Prima flowers. Heavy sigh.  Smack upside the head. Attitude adjusted:   What an “opportunity” to use up my Prima flowers.

Stash: It turns out I had a single sheet of paper from Kaisercraft’s Treasured Moments collection featured in the inspiration kit, plus a piece of embossed paper from their Oh So Lovely collection.  Then I located a sheet of 7 Gypsies Moments paper, and decided to stop and look for embellishments.

Having just encountered bottles and jars of buttons at the aunt’s house, I pulled a few buttons from there and my other stash, then some lace and other fibers, plus rhinestones, a mini clothespin and some tags. Throw in an old sticker and some butterflies and even a metal charm. Sufficient, I’d say.

Sweet, romantic, floral and vintage.  Especially vintage just like that faux canning jar from American Crafts says on its side.

Stops: Now it is time for you to hop along to see what the rest of the design team has done.  Enjoy:

Here is another quick look at this kit.  It is so sweet and petite a kit, that it won't last long.

What sweet, romantic, floral, vintage stash do you want to use up?

Postscript:  Did you happen to notice that I had already used part of my kit in the last challenge for The Studio Challenges?  You can see it here.


  1. Gorgeous flowers! Too nice to hide away.I love all your elements including the papers. Enjoy!

  2. Being a TN girl, I'm excited to hear this! What a cute little kit you created!

  3. LOVING what you put together!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. I love that little spool of yellow ribbon with the butterfly-so awesome! Sweet and perfect little kit!

  5. A very compact kit for you this month but it's got lots of pretty and feminine embellishments. I'm with Margie - love that butterfly/ribbon!

  6. Short and sweet but it'll be good to see how your use it.

  7. I'll enjoy seeing how you use all your flowers x a lovely kit

  8. Very pretty--great use of all those flowers!

  9. I love all the flowers and I like that it's a smaller kit. I think I'm going to keep mine a little bit smaller this month as well so I can use more of it up.

  10. Super cute little kit :) Such pretty flowers too :)

  11. Definitely petite, which is actually a good take for those who may not find this month's inspiration their cup of tea (or should I say, pot de chocolat?) The page you've already created is a stunner.

  12. Small, but sweet - and very tres chic! x

  13. Sweet kit - great job on the attitude adjustment LOL

  14. small but perfectly formed and if you've already used some of it, I'd call it a win! I like the prettiness of this and can very much imagine the pages you'll make with it!
