February Counterfeit Kit Reveal Blog Hop
Hello and welcome to a new month and new kit to counterfeit.
You should have arrived from Lisa H's blog (if not don't worry you can always click here to start at the beginning)
As you would have seen, this month at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge we are testing our forgery skills out on Scraptastic Club's Chasing Pavements Kit.
I loved the fresh lime green and shades of blue in the kit and had to duplicate them in my kit...."Joy Ride"
My papers are from Scenic Route, Amy Tan, Stampin'Up!, Kaisercraft and Echo Park. I included lime green, white and navy cardstock.
My letter stickers are Thickers from American Crafts in denim and Mini Market stickers from October Afternoon in green.
Embellishments include wood veneer arrows from Studio Calico (and some vellum ones as well), paper flags from Basic Grey, arrow washi tape, lime green and white twine, some glassine bags, tags, random diecuts left from Studio Calico kits and some co-ordinating buttons. In place of the arrow stickers I have included a sheet of stickers from Love Elsie.
Now since this kit only included 6 patterned papers and my thickers were pretty well picked over, I decided to create an add on kit as well this month.
Papers are from K & Co, Stampin' Up!, Chatterbox and Amy Tan. I included some kraft and grey cardstock , extra lettering options and some label and border stickers from Stampin' Up!.
This month I also decided to get out some stamps and other tools that I thought would work with my kit.
The stamps are all from Studio Calico and the embossing folders from Stampin' Up! Some of those stamps haven't seen ink at all so I would really like to make use of them this month.
Your next stop on the reveal blog hop is Lynette.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will join in the challenge this month.
