This month I joined (again) to the challenge at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog, which had Studio Calico's 'Summer of '69 kit' as inspiration:
With the color scheme and patterns in mind, along with some of the embellishments, I decided that it's time to finally use some of the oldest items in my stash.
Yes, like most of us, I'm an addicted hoarder! So I took a decision that all the papers that I will include in my counterfeited kit, as well as some of the embellishments - will be at least 6 years old!
Here's the full kit:
It has Fancy Pants, DCWV, My Mind's Eye, Echo Park, Carta Bella, Studio Calico, October Afternoon and Glitz. The only exception are 2 pp by Mintay Papers, but all the papers are 2013 and even before!
As for the mbellishments, again, a mixture of oldies with some new ones. Lots of enamel dots, in many colors, as I wanted all the colors that match my papers, doilies, DIY embellies ('chipboard' banners and buttons, large and small tabs, pp circles, 3D 'stickers', pp hexagons), washi tapes, stickers and alphas. I also added some embellishments from September countefeit kit, hoping to use them this month.
Finally, I also gathered some scraps of pp, with coordinating colors. It's time to destash the scraps box too:
And here're some close-ups on the counterfeited embellishments - I'm really proud of them:
I already have the 1st project to share with you, using this kit, in my next post.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciate your comments very much.
