This month at Counterfeit Kit Challenge, we are working with the March kit from The Papier Werkstatt. The collection is neutral–lots of krafts and soft colors. My kit, Antique Butterfly, has kraft as the inspiration color, but ended up having a much more vintage style.
Another aspect of the inspiration kit is its use of supplies that we do not normally see in scrapbooking, such as felt and handmade paper. The second challenge this month for the Master Forgers is to use a similar item in our project.
CHALLENGE TWO: Outside the Stash – incorporate something non-scrapbook stash related onto your project. Our inspiration kit features a sheet of handmade paper and some thick felt to create a mini-book, neither of which are usually found in our everyday stash. So follow its lead and find something from outside your scrapbooking stash to include on your project.
As I looked around outside my scrap room for something to use in my layout, I spied this gift bag that was destined for the trash.
My husband had recently used it to give me a present for our 24th anniversary. I was going to save the bag to use again, but somehow holes had been torn into the bag(?). So before I tossed it, I cut some of the paper from the bag and a little bit of the gold tissue paper from inside.
Both of these items now reside on my page–which documents the gift that was in the bag! Very serendipitous!
Make sure to visit the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog to see how the other Master Forgers interpreted this challenge.
Now go create!
