February CKC Kit Reveal Blog Hop | Happy Little Things

Posted on

Welcome to the February Counterfeit Kit Reveal Blog Hop!

You should be arriving here from Julene’s blog. If not and you would like to see the entire hop order, just go on back to the CKC home page.

This month we have a beautiful and jam-packed inspiration kit from Noel Mignon. The Weekend in Paris kit is gorgeous! There are patterned papers in happy pinks, and greens, and blues. There are stickers, doilies, pom-poms, and enamel dots–and so much more! I loved having so many products to be inspired by as I curated my own kit.

Recently I purchased a few pieces of the My Mind’s Eye Blush collection. So I started my February kit with these pieces. Then I added these supplies:

  • patterned paper from Pink Paislee, Pinkfresh Studio, Ella & Viv, Bo Bunny, and Maggie Holmes
  • chipboard stickers from Pinkfresh Studio
  • doilies from Prima
  • stickers from Jen Hadfield
  • enamel dots from Echo Park
  • die cuts from Maggie Holmes and Crate Paper

The inspiration kit seemed to me to be fun, flirty, and just adorable. My kit gives me the same feelings! I took inspiration from one of the journaling cards on the patterned paper from Pinkfresh Studio and named my kit Happy Little Things. This kit just makes me happy!

I hope you are enjoying this month’s reveal and are inspired to create a kit that makes you happy!

1 Kit, 1 Sketch, 1 Month | Fresh Start

Posted on

Happy New Year! I hope your 2017 is getting off to a great start. Mine certainly is–I have a brand new kit of scrapbooking goodies to create layouts with this month–and a new project for 2017!

Since I have many stories I want to tell this year, I have challenged myself to use one kit and one sketch to scrapbook with each month. By using a kit each month, I will limit my choices of supplies to make my workflow faster and more streamlined. By using one sketch in different ways, I will always have a starting point for my pages.This year-long project I am calling 1 Kit, 1 Sketch, 1 Month.

Also I will be integrating my scrappy goals for 2017 in this new project. (See this blog post.)

This month my kit has soft pinks, browns, teals and gold. I used this paper from My Mind’s Eye as the inspiration for the collection.

I added papers from Crate Paper, Fancy Pants, Echo Park, Simple Stories, Carta Bella, and Kaisercraft. All the papers are fairly muted in color with simple organic patterns that will coordinate well together.

For embellishments, I added Thickers, chipboard stickers from Shimelle and My Mind’s Eye, diecuts from Basic Grey and Carta Bella, wood veneer pieces, stitched brads, small letter stickers, washi tape from Echo Park and Doodlebug Design, and enamel dots–all in coordinating colors and patterns.

Interesting thought about this kit–I have a balloon paper from a birthday collection, two papers from a winter collection, and washi tape from a baby girl collection, but all the supplies coordinate very well. I love the versatility of today’s scrapbooking products!

These soft colors and floral patterns–very much a contrast to the bold reds and greens that I used last month to complete my December daily–are just right for starting off a brand new year. So I have titled my kit for January Fresh Start.

Check back later this month and I will reveal my projects made from this kit.

Summer Stories | June Kit

Posted on

Summer is my favorite season. I gleefully bask in the warm weather, inhale the scent of honeysuckles, and devour ripe peaches. So when I spied this new paper from Simple Stories, I was inspired to create a kit to reflect my love of summer.
