January CKC - I'm Rubbish At Coming Up With Names!


I was so excited to get going on my January Counterfeit Kit.  The kit to case is from Hip Kit Club

http://counterfeitkitchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/january-counterfeit-kit-reveal-hop.html


I did my usual - quick blog hop, study picture of kit, write a list and close the computer down.  Then I make the kit just from my list.  (After I've made my kit I re-do the hop and leave comments.)

My list read...
grey, minty-turquoise, pink
hearts, stripes, flowers, text, chevron
wood and gold

Here is what I pulled from my stash... a few greens and a lot of greys


Some pinks...


A good few of my Secret Santa papers from Virginia made it in to my kit - thank you Virginia!

Gold, wood, grey and turquoise alphas - they grey ones are cut apart tiles from Sodalicious.  They are new to me and I'm excited to try them!


A seemingly random selection of bits n bobs.  I tried to stick to the colour theme, but there didn't seem to be that many embellishments to counterfeit.  I have bits from Things That Shine, rub ons, stickers, acetate and a couple of wooden bits.


That packet of colourful cloud stickers needs to be used up.  I've decided each month I will pick something from my stash that has been sitting around for years and use it all up.  I'll divide the stickers - the reds and purples won't be used within the kit as they don't match (in my mind) but I'll use them elsewhere this month.

And then the finishing touches - seam binding, thread, ribbon, washi, lace, flair and glitter, oh plus a few extra pretties!


As we can see I wasn't paying full attention as I have the turquoise colour completely wrong!!  The real kit has much more of a blue tone than my green tone, but heyho!  I'll have fun all the same!

I'll allow myself extras as I can see I haven't added enamel dots, inks etc.

Stand by for layouts...

  3. Love your kit :) I love how you go about doing your kit too :) Closing the computer is smart :) Just may have to try that one month :) and thank you for the comment A may have to join you in that scrap challenge next month :) That would be the quickest way to get rid of them. I like your idea of grabbing an old pack of embellishments and using it up :)
