So for our blog hop today, you should have arrived here directly from the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog. Our inspiration kit this month is the Summer Boardwalk kit from Citrus Twist Kits. Beautiful colors and patterns, plus some really fun embellishments! I didn't have any of the actual papers and embellishments from the kit, but I did have some similar papers in my Lost and Found II paper pad from My Mind's Eye. Here are my patterned papers:
The inspiration kit also included some vintage book paper, tiny alphas and some really fun decorative tape. I included the vintage book page and some tiny alphas from a Momenta Super Paper Pad. although I have several rolls of washi tape, none of them really went with my kit papers. However, I did have a few sheets of patterned paper that were very similar to the tapes in the inspiration kit. Plus, they coordinated with the papers in my own kit! Bonus! :) So, I simply included some borders cut from those patterned papers.
I included some super fun Amy Tangerine alphas that I recently found on clearance at AC Moore. I bought them because they were such a fun grey/black grid pattern-and because I love anything Amy Tangerine. :) I also had the MME stamps that coordinated with my papers, so I definitely included those. I loved the speech bubbles from the inspiration kit, but I'm not sure yet if I want to use them on a card or on a layout yet. I included my Create a Critter Cricut cartridge to cut those cute bubbles when I need them for my project.
Finally, my fun embellies: handmade buttons that I made by stamping various patterns on chipboard circles from Technique Tuesday (trying to bust my chipboard stash!), a tiny stamped doily like the one from Amy Tangerine, a banner die cut from Basic Grey, and goldenrod seam binding. I substituted the linen thread for the teal floss in the inspiration kit because it is my favorite and I just can't get enough of it lately! I love, love, LOVE the veneer embellies in the inspiration kit, so I included 2 different woodgrain papers from my DCWV Green Stack. The teal woodgrain is perfect because I will be able to counterfeit the look of "misted veneer" without any of the mess! I also included some plain canvas to counterfeit some of the Amy Tangerine fabric stickers. They are too cute!
So there you have it-my fun July Counterfeit Kit that I am anxious to break into! I hope you enjoyed seeing what I added-I can't wait to see your kits, too! There are lots of great ideas to be found in today's blog hop! Your next stop is:
