Just A Small One...

I'm playing along at Counterfeit Kit Challenge again this month.
The kit to forge for August is from Studio Calico...

My notes about the kit said;
white, kraft, teal.
yellow, stars, white with gold dots, coral-y, black and white words, feathers. 
circles, postage stamps, clouds, mask, transparent, diamonds, doilies, wooden alphas.
yellow and white fringe, pink twine.
vellum, watercolour paper.

There were a few extras listed for sale along side the kit, vellum and watercolour paper took my eye, I added them because when you make your own kit you can also make your own rules!  :)

My papers include yellow, teal, kraft and coral.  I added a gold dot vellum and a cloud transparency.  I searched for anything 'doily-like' in my stash and this half sheet of gold foiled vellum is it - absolutely nothing else!!  I added a star mask too.

I didn't think one set of alphas were enough, but I may have over done it!!  I'm not expecting to use them all but this way they are all to hand.

My tidy tray is full of bits n bobs.  A few flair, a crochet diamond, cardboard diamonds, two ribbons from Cocoa Daisy kits - pretty much the only ribbon in my stash that isn't from Crafty Ribbons!  Two tags, water colour paper, dotty card, a pack of buttons and finally a pack of feathers.  These were in a bundle I bought from Ashley and they are not something I would buy so I'm intrigued to see what I do with them!!


Enamel dots, washi, stickers, twine, star cookie cutters and some brand new ribbon in the colours of the kit.

I'll add inks and paint if the mood takes too.

So this is my small kit!  Ha!  I genuinely intended it to be small - 3 or 4 layouts only.  I guess my sewing project will have to wait another month...

Happy scrapping!


  1. Hi Laura, I think I like your kit better than the original, even if you have overdone the alphas :) Look forward to seeing just how many layouts you make from it. Elizabeth xx

  2. Looking forward to what you do with your kit.

    Hope you have a lovely weekend.


  3. I love making kits, too, and how quickly they grow! Beautiful work!

  4. Such a lovely kit. Love the star stencil, the doily transparency and the cookie cutters. Looking forward to you creations.

  5. A really nice kit which is fairly close to the original.

  6. Great copying you've done here. And I don't think you can have too many alphas in a kit, I never seem to have enough. Can't wait to see what you do with these yummy supplies.

  7. Now I'm all curious about that blurred ribbon ... you tease!
    Great kit full of goodness!

  8. Love the blues in your kit. I could dive right in & play with this one!

  9. You got such a fun kit! looking forward to seeing what you do with it
