Counterfeit Kit Bloghop!

Welcome to my blog!  I have the pleasure of being the 'Queen' of Counterfeit Kit Challenge this month.  It has been such fun to choose the kit and challenges.  I had tons of ideas for this month but I guessing my health is going to seriously limit the amount of projects I can complete.  My kit may well last me two months!

I'm a fan of Hey Little Magpie and they put kits together every now and then.  This kit has now sold out but here are the images from their site...

Here is the list I made of the kit - this is what I refer to when pulling my kit.  I find this easier than refering back to the actual photos - it then feels like my kit rather than a kit that is trying to be a copy, if that makes sense!

So here is my kit...

A massive mix of navy, teal, mint and pale pink papers both 12x12 and 6x6.  A fair few sheets of alphas, a bag of collected ephemera, washi, ribbons, buttons and embellishments.

I won't write too much more today as you'll want to carry on round the hop and check out the awesome kits the DT have pulled together.  Your next stop is Julene!

Hope to see you throughout the month - Happy Crafting!


  1. Hi Laura - what a great job you are doing being our Queen :)
    A lovely big kit for you to have fun with too :)

  2. Hi Laura, I am loving the kit.

    Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday. Sue

  3. Wonderful kit counterfeiting - BETTER than the original if I may be so bold. Looking forward to seeing what happens with all that ribbon!

  4. Beautiful kit-both your choice for the inspiration, and your own stash kit! And a great idea to make a list-I may try that sometime!

  5. Great job at being the queen, you chose wisely I see quite a bit I like about this kit and I really like what you pulled together or your kit :) Excited to see what you come up with and the challenges for the month.

  6. There's much yummy stuff there. I love the transparency butterflies and your interesting buttons.

  7. So thrilled with the inspiration kit you chose, and your own kit is even more majestic. Being the forgery queen suits you.

  8. I think this your kit is better than the original too! I LOVE the way you put together your kit! Love your list and that you pick out your colours.

  9. I absolutely adore the presentation of your kit! The inspiration was so pretty but yours far eclipses it. Maggie Holmes was a great go-to for this forgery with the color scheme :D Thanks for being our queen this month, Your Majesty!

  10. What an inspiring choice and wonderful collection goodies you have put together. I haven't had chance to play along all summer, but hope to jump back in this month, looking forward to your challenges Your Madge! Ps great idea to make a list like that, must try it :o)

DMIO: Teach Me Something

A few weeks back I made a dream catcher.  A few readers asked if I could show them how I made it, so, here is my attempt at a tutorial! First up weaving the web. 1. You'll need a hoop and some ribbon/thread/yarn on a bobbin. 2. Attach the ribbon securely to your hoop. 3. Take your ribbon over the top of the hoop... 4. and up through the loop you've just made with the ribbon... 5. so you have a cross over. 6. Continue steps 3-5 until you reach the knot. 7. Now instead of going over the hoop you will crossover the ribbon 8. and through the loop you've just made to give a crossover. Continue on in this fashion until you get to the middle. You need to leave a hole in the middle as this is where the good dreams get through!  They then run down the tassels/feathers/any other hanging decoration and on to the owner.  It should look something like this.  You'll need to play around with your tension until you get a firm web. Now for the tassels - I like to

A Poe Quote

So I've been trying out art journalling for a while but had nothing that I wanted to share, until now. I was inspired by The Bears Challenge and picked this quote to base my page on. "If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered" I got some paints out, some spray mists too.  I used my fan brush, my fingers and a cotton rag.  I got messy, satisfyingly messy :) The letters are some old letraset vinyls that were my Aunt's.  When we cleared my Grandparents house I couldn't stand the art goodies to go to waste.  I saved them because I knew one day I would find a use for them.  They must be 40 years old but are still perfect.  (I sometimes look at things I get today and think they won't still be good in 5 years let alone 40!) I don't have the complete alphabet so there are some adaptations... c's became o's, E's became t's, w's became m's.  I magicked a k from a P!  Some
