Trying out the Counterfeit Kit Challenge

I saw this group appear on 2Peas last month but missed January's challenge. I did want to try this out though...the basic premise being to take one of the available kits in scrapbook land and make your own using products from your stash. Like many scrappers, I knew I probably had a fair amount of supplies that I could use to make a similar kit. So with another month, the crew over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog chose a kit for all participants to base their February stash kits off of. And here's my interpretation:



I don't usually incorporate a lot of embellishments in my pages even though I have plenty. But maybe with them already being in a paper keeper for the month along with all my chosen papers, I won't forget to include them. As I am a great hoarder of Thickers, I had to include one trusty set within my kit. I'm excited for what the challenges will be and it should be fun to have a "kit" of supplies to work with as well. Check out the challenge blog yourself if you are interested in joining along for the month of February.

I love all of the stuff you put into your kit...I think you will find that you are right, you will be more likely to use more embellishments when they are already there and coordinate...I found that was exactly what happened to me :)

Great kit...it will make some pretty things for sure! And I'm like you, a minimal embellishment person, but this challenge is making me use more than I thought I would.
