Thanks SO much to everyone who stopped by my blog during the hop & left comments!
Now onto some other fun news...I am guest designing this month over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog!
Now, while I love subscribing to kit clubs, I also adore the idea of using kit clubs as inspiration to make my own kits from my stash! It's such a great way to using existing supplies in a coordinated way with great-looking results.
This month, Counterfeit Kits gave me this kit photo from Little Red Scrapbook as inspiration:
And here is my take on it, using only my existing stash, without spending a dime:
Mini Kit: Chrysalis
I loved how the kit turned out, but definitely needed an add-on to satiate my hunger for lots of accents, so I also forged a small kit using the September 2010 Embellishment add-on as inspiration:
Original kit: Echo Park stickers, October Afternoon alpha in green, Maya Road chipboard houses, Prima mini flowers, Jenni Bowlin buttons, and glimmer mist in Creme de Rouge.
My kit: Crate Paper stickers; 2 October Afternoon alphas, both half-used; Maya Road chipboard butterflies & mini posies; American Crafts buttons, plus a few AC mini-tags & the only product I had from the American Crafts Enchanted collection: some mementos accents. Finally, I made my own spray ink to match the Creme De Rouge...a salmon-pink with lots of gold shimmer.
This creating-my-own-kit thing is REALLY cool! I'm so excited to get to work using my kit, and am so pleased seeing all these stash items put together in such a coordinated way. Thanks so much, Counterfeit Kit team, for allowing me to join in on all the fun.
Throughout the month, I get to participate in the awesome challenges over at the Counterfeit Kit blog, to use up this newly-created kit! To play along with the challenges, create your own kit, and see the Counterfeit DT's kits, be sure to visit HERE.
Before you go, here's a teeny peek at the layouts I created with this kit:
You'll see more projects & challenges this month, along with the full reveal of the challenge layouts, plus a tutorial on the medallion flowers I made, so come on back soon!
