My Counterfeit Kit

Hello Bloggers! Another quicky tonight...it's already midnight and I'm seriously lagging! But I finally got my Counterfeit Kit(s) all organized for the crop this weekend and I was excited to share them with you! My wonderful Hubs is letting me crop ALL WEEKEND!! I know! He's fabulous!! I wasn't sure what I was going to do this weekend, and then I remembered Counterfeit Kits had their new kits out now and it's been a while since I've played along...problem solved! It's a fabulous way to prep for a crop! Anyway, they've got 2 awesome kits up for "stealing" this month and at first, I wasn't going to do the first one because it was kinda lovey-dovey and valentiney, but it did have the new Kraft Fun Day papers in it which are some of my new favs right now, so I decided I would make a gushy mushy kit too! lol I'm really glad I did, because I'm kinda stoked about this one now and I can't wait to go play with it! You can check out the real kit here.



For the second kit I was really inspired by the funky "retro" vibe and I based my kit off that. I didn't have a lot of the same stuff, but that's the beauty of counterfeiting, you don't have to! And you can use up your stash at the same time! 

I didn't have any corrugated cardboard, but I did have some starbucks sleeves and they just happen to be corrugated on the inside! Yay (and if you use steel rule dies, they cut nicely too!) I also added some JillyBean corrugated alphas too :)

I kinda covered up the paper with all the embellishments in the first coupla pics, so I thought I'd give you a shot of just the paper


Well. that's it! I'm sooo excited to play this weekend and having my kits all set up is going to make my life a whole lot easier!! Yay!! Now I just have to find some pictures to go along with these fabulous papers!!
