September Counterfeit Kit Blog Hop

Welcome to September Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog hop.
This month we have a very talented scrapper, Clair, as our Guest Designer. you should really look at her blog - load with creativity and inspiration.
If you came here from Lisa's blog, then you're on the right track. If you came here directly and want to do the hop, please start at Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog.
As inspiration kit for this month, we have August 2012 kit from Bird Of A Feather
As a twist, we were asked to counterfeit at least 3 items from the last summer CHA. I really liked the idea, cause I saw many many items I would love to have, and till I have them (hopefully...), I can just counterfeit some of them :).
Usually, my counterfeit kits are very big, with many dp and cs and loaded with embllishments, many of them handmade by me. But this month my counterfeit kit is a little smaller in size - less dp, less cs and less embellishments.
This month is full of Jewish holidays, including New Year, and we'll be spending most of our time with family and friends, so I won't have much time for scrapping, and smaller kit is a good idea :).
And this is my kit -
First are the dp:
MME - Indie Chic/Saffron
Heidi Grace Designs - A little Bird's Tail
Fancy Pants - Summer's End
Glitz Designs - Beautiful Dreamer
WP - Ladies & Gents
KI Memories - Love Elsie
DCWV - Cafe' Mediterranean
Echo Park - This&That/Charming
Fancy Pants - My Family
KI Memories = School Day
I was inspired by colors and patterns. What I really like about these papers, is that most of them have B side that  I like and can use.
CS and embellishments:
I took different colors for my cs, in colors that I know I will work with. Once again I didn't add any flowers to my kit. Last months I also didn't put any flowers, and thought I'd have some handmade flowers while working, but eventually I ended up with no flowers on my layouts, all month along. I'm not sure what will happen this month, but I already knowI will add some alphas (English and Hebrew).
I made a new set of kraft journaling tags, according to my own tutorial here.
As for my CHA summer 2012 items:
I counterfeited Maya Road kraft envelope, Maya Road gingham fabric tapes, Simple Stories Memorabilia pockets,  My Mind's Eye crocheted doilies and My Mind's Eye jouranling tags.

Your next stop on the hop is Margie's blog.

Thank you for stopping by!
עם הגיעו של חודש חדש, הגיע הזמן גם לקיט חיקוי חדש. הפעם קיט ההשראה היה לי אתגרי לחיקוי. אין לי אף אחד מהדפים שבקיט ההשראה, והלכתי על גוונים ודוגמאות דומים.
הפעם קיט החיקוי שלי קטן יותר (יחסית, הכל יחסי...). פחות דפים מדוגמים, פחות קארדסטוקים ופחות קישוטים.
בעניין של הקישוטים החודש יש לנו טוויסט קטן - היינו צריכות לחקות לפחות 3 פריטים מתערוכת CHA האחרונה שהייתה בקיץ.  אני חיקיתי מעטפת קראפט של Maya Road, סרטים דביקים של אותה חברה בדיגום בד משבצות, מיני כיסים וינטאג'יים של Simple Stories (פריט מדליק, ומאד קל לביצוע), מפיות קרושה של My Mind's Eye, ותגיות ג'ורנלינג של אותה חברה.
אז מה אתן אומרות? מצטרפות לפרוייקט?
תודה על תשומת הלב!

I made a smaller kit this month, too - your kit looks great, and I love your little pockets. I need to try some, too. Hope you have a nice month of holidays and family time!

Margie said...

I love your kit-beautiful colors! And your handmade embellies are fantastic!!

Clair said...

Thanks so much for your kind words about me and my blog. You're very sweet!

I love your smaller kit - sometimes we just need to be out living our lives before we can scrap them. Your counterfeited elements are amazing by the way. I actually couldn't pick them out in your shots of the full kit! x

אוהבת מאוד את הקיט המקורי. כמובן את קיט החיקוי שלך. אשתדל לנסות החודש. אש קטנה

Very cute kit! And how very wise of you to make a smaller kit, knowing what your schedule looks like this month! Cheers for being realistic - it's a great reminder for me to do the same!

love those owls they look so cute, and I'm sure you'll have some fantastic layouts from that super kit

Tricia said...

Such a beautiful kit!! Nothing wrong with a smaller kit for me they are easier to work with, hope that it will be the same for you.
