July Counterfeit Kit

Can you believe that it is the first week of July already? This summer is just flying by! One good thing about it being a new month, however, is that it is time for a new Counterfeit Kit Challenge! This month we are counterfeiting THIS KIT from Polka Dot Whimsy. Here is a sampling of my version of the kit:
I tried to match most of my papers as closely as I could, although I didn't have any of the papers from the original kit. The lace transparency in the top right corner actually should have been included with my add-on kit...oops! :)

Here are my embellishments. I included a sheet of felt instead of the die-cut felt border and lots of my favorite crinkled seam binding. The scooter chipboard sticker from Momenta coordinates perfectly with the scooter paper in my kit (an alternative to the airplanes in the original kit.) I also included some coffee-themed embellishments. They coordinated with my papers and will be perfect for my daughter's coffee-themed birthday this month.

My alpha stickers: Basic Grey, printed chipboard from Studio Calico, and my favorite tinies.

I realized that I haven't been using many of my stamps lately. I really miss stamping! So this month I chose 3 sets to include in my kit. The original add-on had stickers with Chinese lanterns, so I included my newest Lawn Fawn set, Lunar Lights. I also added two sets with a coffee theme that could work for both cards and embellishments.

Finally, here is my Liberty Shores add-on kit. I included some white crepe paper that can easily be altered and some silver crepe paper that came in a past Halloween kit. I hope to find some fun ways to use these embellies this month! I also included a little kraft envie that I made using a free download. I will post a photo tutorial soon showing how I made it.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! You can see all of the other Master Forgers' counterfeit kits HERE on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog. Keep checking in at the CKCB over the next several days for tons of great tutorials and download links-we've got a lot to share with you this month!

Lovely summer kit, Sherri. I see you pulled out the stamps too. I look forward to your creations.

I don't have any of the original papers either, so I'm going to have to get creative! I have tons of felt and think I will try adding that to my kit this month.

I really like your Liberty Add On. I just really like patriotic/Americana papers.

Love all that summer fun and what a great idea to put stamps in too! Might have to try that next month since I'm thinking this challenge might be addicting and I might have to try it again! ;o)
