Counterfeit Challenge Kit

Good evening, it's a bit hot isn't it?  I am being typically British to anyone who will listen that it's far to hot and I wish it would cool down a bit :-)  I hope wherever you are you aren't struggling with the weather.
I have been scrapbooking quite a bit recently but I still haven't made a dent in my stash.  I have far far to much but I am enjoying using it all up.   I am on a bit of a mission at the moment to use up the scraps.  I have a expedit cube full of them.   I have also realised I work far better from a kit when I go to crops.   It's easier to get ready and everything is co ordinated.   As you will probably know I am a huge fan of the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Here.  Well this month they are counterfeiting a gorgeous kit so I thought I would play along.   Be warned my kit is HUGE.
Here is my first selection of papers.  I have included lots of papers but they are all scraps.  They range in sizes but there is not one full sheet.

Paper selection 2.  I have lots of different ranges from My Minds Eye, American Crafts, Basic Grey, Stampin Up and so much more.  I just went through the scrap bin and pulled out colours that I thought would work together. 

Here is a selection of Project Life cards.  I don't know who they are by as I have mixed all of my cards up.

These are my alphabets.   They are Thickers and some Papermania ones.  I will also use my Bigshot and Cricut if I need to.

Here is a selection of embellishments.  I am missing twine as it is somewhere on my desk and I just can not put my hands on it, anyone else have this problem?  I want to make some embellishments too and I am going to have a go at making some of the frames that is included in the original kit. 

Here are the sticker sheets I have included.  There is quite a range there......

So here is my kit.  I haven't included stamps, dies and cardstock as I will grab them as I need them.  I have been very organised and have even got some photos ready to use.  I am hoping to spend sometime over the weekend making some pages.  I also have a few cards to make so I am going to use the kit to make them too.

If you have got this far thank you so much for looking and I will be back in the next few days to show you some pages.

  1. A big kit gives you lots of great options! You've got a lot of fun and pretty pieces to work with - I'm sure you'll enjoy using it this month.

  2. This looks very scrappy to me - I like how those last batch of stickers adds a few more colors into it. Enjoy!

  3. I find using scraps energizes my creativity. That is as long as I like them. I try not to save my scraps that only leave me feeling lukewarm. Anyway, you've got some pretty awesome scraps there and I bet you get lots of mojo with them. I love your color range and small embellishments. I look forward to seeing what you create.

  4. A good selection of papers & embellishment . I'm sure your going to make quite a few Lo's with your kit.

  5. It all looks very interesting. Enjoy this month's kit. I put my paper scraps in 12x12 ziplock bags(clear) according to colour.It is handy to pick up and take to a crop or class and you can see what you've got.

  6. Looks great, i'm sure you will be really productive with your kit.

  7. Cute kit, lovely selection of papers and embellishments. Looking forward to your creations.
