Counterfeit Kit Challenge - April Reveal and Blog Hop

Hello again! This is my second post of the day. If you are looking for my Sketch N Scrap reveal, please scroll down or go here.

The April inspiration kit is being revealed today at Conterfeit Kit Challenge and we are having a blog hop to show how the design team counterfeited this kit.

This month Tina has picked our inspiration kit and she chose Everyday Documented Page Kit April from Button Farm Club. Here is a look at the inspiration kit:

This is a little better look at the papers that are included in the kit:

You can find more photos of this fun kit over on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog.

When I first saw this kit I knew it would be perfect for all of the fun springtime/Easter photos that I still need to scrap - and I'm sure I will have a whole bunch more after this weekend! So, I based my kit off of the colors and the spring/Easter theme of the inspiration kit and came up with my "Looks like spring" kit:

I knew for my kit I would be digging into my Echo Park stash. Every single paper but one is from them. I picked the multi-colored dot paper first, then added a sheet or two of each color that is found in the dot paper. I even found an all over bicycle print paper similar to the one in the inspiration kit to throw into my kit. 

While I was searching for papers to add to my kit, I did find that I had the same multi colored splatter paper from Bella Blvd's - Color Chaos - collection in my stash. This could have lead me in a whole other direction and I could have added a bunch more papers, but I didn't want my kit to be that big. I did pull a few more sheets from Echo Park's - Splendid Summer - that had the dark blue in it to give me another color option.

I also found a few scraps that I would like to get used up this month, too, so I added them to my kit, as well.

For my embellishments I stuck with the Echo Park - Happy Easter and Sunny Days Ahead - sticker sheets. I also added the - I Love Candy - stickers from Echo Park - I know I will be able to use a few off of that sheet as well. Like the inspiration kit, I put in a couple of cut apart sheets. They will be perfect for my Project Life pages or as accents to other layouts.

The inspiration kit has some wood veneer pieces in it, so I raided my wood veneer stash and probably added way to much, but I uncovered a little bag of wood pieces that I had gotten from Gossamer Blue before they went out of business and I figured that maybe if I have them out ready to be used that they might get used up! I had to include some enamel dots, a couple of stamp sets  and dies (for some forgeries), and the Echo Park - Sunny Days Ahead - 6x6 paper pad. I am trying really hard to get it used up this year!

I also came across this Echo Park - Spring collection that I had picked up a month or so ago and even though it's an older collection, it is new to me. I'm going to put the whole collection pack in with my kit because I thought it might be fun to add in some newer papers to help use up the older ones that I have been hanging on to.

And that is my complete - Looks like spring - kit. I cannot wait to dive in and get to using it up!

Now, here is the complete list for the blog hop. Be sure to stop by and see the design team's kits.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I will be back soon with another project to share with you!

  4. Another huge kit! Wow! There's so much in there that I love and so much that I know I could use but I'm not sure I could use so much! Ha ha! Pretty pretty and I love the idea of adding in the darker blue too - the mix of colours and elements is really great and I'm sure you're going to get some fabulous pages from it!

  5. Another big, warm, beautiful kit! Looking forward to seeing the gorgeous pages that you will surely this, especially the stamps and enamels.

  6. What a lovely big kit full of sunshine, and I love the idea of including stamps and dies ready for forgery business :o)

  7. I love your paper choices, especially those tone-on-tone prints that are so versatile. Great choice with the Echo Park items too - they definitely capture the happy and spring-y mood of the inspiration kit!

  8. Really nice kit, I like that it has simple tone on tone patterns and multi-color ones as well. Enjoy.
