Welcome to my stop on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge January Reveal and Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Leslie's blog. If you get lost along the way you can find the complete list on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog.
Here is our first inspiration kit of 2018:
Lisa has chosen Cocoa Daisy's Fair Isle kit - a great kit to help us get some of those holiday photos scrapped! This kit is full of the traditional reds and greens, but there is also a pop of pink and a little yellow can be found, too.
Here is my kit - which I have named Merry, Merry. First, my complete kit:
I started with the plaid paper in the inspiration photo. I knew I had a Christmas plaid paper from Simple Stories that I would use for my inspiration piece, then I picked a paper with words, a red dot, a green, and a stripe. When I got to the stripe my kit kind of took a different direction! My striped paper also had a bit of pink, and since I scrap a lot of photos of my granddaughter, I knew I wanted to include more pink in my kit.
For my solid colors, I included the basic black, off-white, and white cardstock, a piece of red, and I loved the look of the watercolor type paper with a bit of yellow on it, so I included a little bit of yellow, too! The kit also has a piece of dotted vellum in it and while going through my stash I found a piece of dotted vellum, so I stuck it in my kit as well.
Here are my papers:
Here are my embellishments:
To be honest, I don't have a lot of die cut/ephemera Christmas pieces, so I included a couple of sticker sheets that included the right colors and some of the same type pieces that are included in the inspiration kit, along with some alphas. I've included some red bling, some stamps, and some dies and punches to make my own embellishments if needed.
That's it for my first kit reveal. What do you think? Now it's your turn to make up a kit using the inspiration kit photo.
Next up on the blog hop is Tina. Head on over to her blog and see the fantastic kit that she has created!

A fabulous first MF kit :-) And I love that it suddenly took on a life of its own and headed in a different direction. Mine do that all the time so it always makes me smile to read that it happens to others too. I hope you enjoy using it :-)ReplyDelete
