January Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop Reveal

Welcome 2013 and welcome you to our CKC blog hop reveal!
If you came here from Julie's blog, then you're on the right track. If you came here directly and you want to do the hop, please start at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog, so you can see ALL the beautiful kits the Master Forgers and our Guest Designer, Madeleine, made for January.
This month we're counterfeiting Paper Issues' December kit , called "A Merry Winter":
(Paper Issues also sponsering us this months with a great prize to win!)
I must say that at first I thought to give up this month... This kit is so Christmass and we don't celebrate Chirstmas at all. Usually, I even don't have papers even similar those in the inspiration kit, so I thought I'll counterfeit it in general even if my kit will be very different.
Eventually, I ended up with a kit very similar to the inspiration one, thanks to a prize I won last month at Artful Delight. The kit I won there was also Christmas theme, but Leeanne, the owner of Artful Delight, was so kind to switch it to another kit of hers. She was very generous and her package arived so quickly (overseas shippment!), just in time for me to make my counterfeit kit.
My kit includes:
2 American Crafts white cs with texture.
1 Bazzill Rope Swing dotted cs.
1 Basic Grey kraft tally cs.
Patterned papers:
1st row:
Ruby Rock-it "Mother Nature"/Royale (on the photo - side B)
Basic Grey "Paper Cottage"/table linens (side B)
Basic Grey "Paper Cottage"/afghan (side B)
Ruby Rock-it "Mother Nature"/Postcard (side B)
2nd row:
Simple Stories "Sn@p!"/Red Chevron
Lilybee design "Memorandum"/Payday (side B)
Basic Grey "Paper Cottage"/ Fine China (side B)
Ruby Rock-it "Mother Nautre"/Harmony
3rd row:
Ruby Rock-it "Mother Nature"/Flutterby (side B)
Basic Grey "Paper Cottage"/ Porch Swing (Side B)

Glitz teeny alpha teal woodgrain.
Hebrew red velvet alpha.
Basic Grey "Paper Cottage"stickers.
Basic Grey "Paper Cottage" wood buttons
October Afternoon "Holiday Style" wrap pack trims.

Please come back on Jan 3rd, when our 1st challenge will be posted. Here's a sneak peek to my layout for this challenge:

Thank you for taking the time and visiting my blog.
חודש חדש וקיט חיקוי חדש! (גם) הפעם היה לי קשה בהתחלה להתחבר לקיט ההשראה, שהיה מאד מאד כריסטמסי. הרווח וההצלה באו הפעם מפרס שבו זכיתי, קיט ענקי, מלא בכל טוב. הוא הגיע ממש בזמן כדי שאספיק להכין את קיט החיקוי שלי. הוספתי עוד כמה דפים וקישוטים - והנה הקיט מוכן. אני לא בטוחה איך וכמה אשתמש בו, אם כי לחלק מהדפים שאותם הכנסתי לקיט יש צד שני שקוסם לי הרבה יותר. שני פרוייקטים כבר הספקתי להכין מהקיט הזה, ואחד מהם, דף מעוצב, יעלה בפוסט ביום חמישי, עם האתגר הראשון שלנו לחודש ינואר. 
אז מי מצטרפת החודש? אני מזכירה לכן שלא חייבים להכין קיט גדול, עם כל המרכיבים. אפשר להסתפק גם בקיט קטן, עם 3-4 דפים מדוגמים, קארדסטוק או שניים לבסיס, וכמה קישוטים. העיקר הוא להשמיש את החומרים שיש לכן כבר ממילא בבית.
ועוד מעט, ממש עוד מעט, יעלה הפוסט שלי למשחק של 'טלפון שבור', אז תשארו בסביבה....

Your take on the kit is surprisingly faithful to the original, yet without the Xmas vibe. Well done!!! I love the washi tapes you've included too.
Happy New Year xxx

LCSmithSAVED said...

Nice save with your new supplies! I always enjoy your creativity SO MUCH :~)

Lisa said...

Nice way to use up those new purples straight away. I'm terrible for keeping stuff as special until I realize they are old already. Nice look to the kit with the splashes of bright.

Looks like a great kit for this month. I love that color of blue thickers - I don't think I have anything close to that color, but now I want to find some!
