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!

Sweet Smile | September Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop

Posted on

Welcome to the September Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop! You should have arrived from Jemma’s blog. (If not, find the entire blog hop participants on the CKC blog.) The inspiration kit this month is the August kit from the popular and beautiful Felicity Jane kit club. This collection is full of soft colors and a mix floral patterns with a few geometric designs–a great kit with which to head into fall!


I began choosing items for my kit by looking for papers that had similar colors to the inspiration kit–muted pinks, reds, greens, and greys. I also looked for patterns in the papers that would echo the ones in the kit–such as the circles and woodgrain prints.

The first additions to my kit were four patterned papers from Pink Paislee’s Cedar Lane collection–a circle-patterned paper, a woodgrain, and two geometric prints in soft pink and grey. Next I added three papers from October Afternoon. One print has cute smiling faces on it which reminded me of the “smile” sticker in the Felicity Jane kit. Finally I added a blue patterned paper from Bella Boulevard which coordinates with the whole kit.

I kept this kit fairly small–I only added a few choice embellishments. I began with a pack of die cuts and arrows from the Cedar Lane collection. I added letter stickers from October Afternoon, and then flair, clips, and washi from The Planner Society. The feathers on the arrows and floral washi mimic the birds and flowers in the patterned papers and embellishments in the inspiration kit.


When I first saw this month’s inspiration kit, I fell in love with its soft colors and designs. I am happy to say that I am equally in love with my kit, which I am calling Sweet Smile. I cannot wait to use this collection!

Head on over to Julene’s blog to continue on this month’s hop. (If you missed any stops along the way, just go back to the CKC blog to find the entire list.)

Summer Stories | June Kit

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.


Simple Stories, Sunshine and Happiness, Shine Bright

To go with this sunshine-y pattern, I chose these papers:


Pink Paislee, Fancy Free, Paper 06


Pink Paislee, Outfitters, Paper 04


Bella Blvd, Illustrated Faith, Whatever Is Lovely, 3×4


Bella Blvd, Fresh Market, Freshly Picked


Bella Blvd, Fresh Market, Freshly Squeezed


Bella Blvd, Fresh Market, Daily Details


Echo Park, Party Time, Celebrate


Simple Stories, Sunshine and Happiness, Oh Yeah

I picked a variety of embellishments that would coordinate with my papers as well as give me a good choice of products to use.


Bella Blvd, Fruit Punch, Cardstock Stickers, Tiny Text Alphas


Bella Blvd, Fresh Market, Cardstock Stickers, Treasures and Text


Simple Stories, Bloom and Grow, Decorative Brads


My Mind’s Eye, Market Street, Flair Pins


Echo Park, Party Time, Enamel Dots

Bella Blvd, Illustrated Faith, She Blooms, Washi Tape, Bloom


Bella Blvd, Illustrated Faith, She Blooms, Icons


Bella Blvd, Cute Clips, Pretty Posh

Already I have a number of warm-weather photographs to scrapbook. I am looking forward to using this kit, which I am calling Summer Stories.
