My Counterfeit Kit

Well I tried it once before and didn’t end up using my kit, but this time I’m determined! I love the idea of creating a kit out of my own stash! So I’m playing along with Counterfeit Kits this month! Now, my kit doesn’t really look anything like their inspiration kit. But the kit (although great) was too girly for what I’ve got planned this month…well let’s face it, with 3 boys, it’s pretty much too girly for any month! But that’s the great thing about Counterfeit Kits, you don’t have to make your kit look exactly like the inspiration kit, you can counterfeit the elements of the kit if not the colors, and that’s what I’ve done with mine!

Here’s the inspiration kit from Burlap and Buttercups Kit club:

And here’s my kit:

Now some of the girls over at Counterfeit Kits have created a summer add on for this kit, and I have too because I’ve been in the mood for some summery layouts lately…but I have to admit that once I got started creating the add on, I couldn’t stop, and I’ve pretty much just made a second kit rather than an add on…it’s quite possible that my add on kit is larger than my original kit! lol Anyway, here it is:

So there are my kits…It looks like I’ve got a bit of scrapping to get done to use up all this yummy goodness! I’m totally inspired now, so stay tuned for what’s to come!

I like that you changed out the colors to work for you. And I love that you have two big kits (thats what I keep doing, too) for lots of fun choices.

HOw fun! I can't wait to see how you use the facets/bling things from TH! I love the colors, very masculine. Your "add on" is great too!

I think you've done a fine job adapting the kits for your needs. Even with 3 boys, I think you've enough supplies for all summer. Enjoy it!

Your kits are gorgeous!! I love the embellies! And don't worry, my summer add on is larger than my main kit, too! Good job making it work for you!
