Hi and welcome to the January Design Team blog hop, my very first as a Design Team member.
You should have arrived from Lisa H's blog. As always I love Lisa's take on the inspiration kit. If you have missed any of the design team you can always start back at the Counterfeit kit challenge blog and hop from the beginning.
This month at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge we still have our jingle bells on and we are counterfeiting this gorgeous kit.
I loved the colours and general feel of this very Christmassy kit and if you think about it January is the perfect time for a Christmas kit as we have all those Chrissy photos to scrap.
My first step in creating my kit was to go to my christmas papers where I found an entire My Mind's Eye kit that I had purchased last year (12 Days of Christmas).
The pink, aqua, green and red colours were just what I was looking for and the kit also included a matching diecut sheet (bonus).
To this base I mixed in some older stash including papers from Stampin Up! (Green smallstar, Music Sheet, Emboss resist cardstock), Love Elsie (Hot Pink Ledger), Crate Paper (Aqua Diamonds and cream doily print), Kaisercraft (Blue with snowflakes and hot pink small snowflakes), 7 Gypsies (red script) and an unknown aqua damask paper. I also added in some kraft and embossed white cardstock.
I have include three sets of lettering:
1. Red and Pink Vinyl letters from Heidi Swapp
2. Green October Afternoon Mini Market stickers
3. White corrugated stickers from Pebbles.
3. Heart stickpins
5. Seambinding ribbon from Stampin Up! and a red and white twine.
6. Kraft banners (handcut from cardstock)
7. Various buttons
So there you have it my kit for January "Candycane Kisses".
Some of the other DT members found some fantastic printables as well to co-ordinate so don't be surprised to see those popping up in my projects too.
I will also be making my own version of the Pink Paislee resist stars throughout the month.
I can't wait to dig in to this kit and I hope you will join in the fun this month.
Your next stop on the Design Team blog hop is the fabulous Lynette.
