I told you it was cute. :)I went through the list of kit contents and tried to copy each item as closely as I could using only items from my stash. The only thing that I bought was a roll of aida material (used for cross-stitch.) I substituted this in my kit for the burlap. I even used a 50% off coupon, so I only paid $2.49 for the whole roll. :) Here is my kit. The first photo is just my papers-a mix of Cosmo Cricket, Stampin' Up!, Momenta, Colorbok, Echo Park, Sassafras Lass, My Mind's Eye, SEI, Imaginisce, American Crafts, and Jillibean Soup! The second photo is my embellies and extras.
I had a lot of fun this month trying to replicate the Fancy Pants cards and journaling spots. The two blue, two yellow, two kraft and coral journaling spots in the photo are all handmade-and I think they look pretty close to the originals! (I will have tutorials later in the month for these.) For my heart transparency, I used a stamp that has been in my stash for years, and I stamped it using black StazOn ink onto a piece of product packaging. I included two scraps of fabric, a recycled zipper, some fun yarn and other trims, silk flowers and leaves, a white feather and googly eyes, and a bird template. I also substituted some fun new metal flair stickers from Momenta in place of the bottle caps. In place of "Hank the Plank" from the inspiration kit, I included a wooden frame from Michael's dollar bin that has been in my scraproom for years. Time to use it up! I hope that you will play along with us this month. You can find the Counterfeit Kit Challenge HERE. Don't forget to link up photos of your kit and projects!
