Counterfeit Kit Challenge March 2021 Kit Reveal and Blog Hop

 Hello, everyone! Happy Monday and Happy March 1st! Aahhhh, March! The month when we start having more warm days than cold and spring is just a couple of weeks away. I am so ready for it!

It's time for a new inspiration kit and blog hop at Counterfeit Kit Challenge. Master Forger Clair has chosen the fun - digital - Paper Addict Kit from Mommyish. It's a kit full of bold colors and easy to "counterfeit" embellishments. Here's a look at the kit:

You can see more detailed photos of the kit on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog.

This is what I came up with:

I love the bright colors in the inspiration kit and found a few papers in my stash that was a pretty good match to them. The only papers that I did not have in my stash were the icon papers with the typewriters and office supplies on them, but I more than made up for those in my embellishments.

Here's a better look at my papers:

I kept my papers to a minimum this month! My goal is to try to keep my kits on the smaller size this year so I have a chance at getting them all used up, and so far I have done pretty well with keeping them small! 

I have a few different manufactures here - Echo Park, October Afternoon, We R Memory Keepers, Jillibean Soup, Basic Grey, and Crate Paper.

 I went a little crazy on the embellishments - at least it looks like I did! I pulled out a couple of random PinkFresh die-cut packs that went along with the theme of the original kit and picked out the ones that I thought I could use this month:

Along with the die-cuts, I pulled a couple of 12x12 sticker sheets and a few shaped paper clips. 

I also added in a 6x6 paper pad from Pink Paislee:

I pulled this paper pad solely for the typewriter paper. I have photos of my daughter when she was a junior or senior in high school doing an interview for the school's newspaper. I have been meaning to scrap these photos for so long - she graduated high school in 2009! - and have never gotten around to it. They have been in and out of my "to scrap" pile for ages. Now I just need to find where they are at! Since they were taken pre-digital...well, I will have to be going through my piles of printed photos!

I also pulled a couple of sticker books that I thought I could use this month and added them to my kit:

I already have 3 layouts planned for this kit and hopefully, that will put a pretty good dent into this kit!

 Be sure to check out the kits from the rest of the design team. I always love to see what everyone else has included in their kit! We have a super talented guest designer joining us this month, so be sure you check out Julie's work on Instagram. Here's the blog hop list:

There is so much inspiration to be found in the above blog hop! If you pull together a kit - be sure to share it with us! You can post them in our Facebook Community, or share them on Instagram (we are @counterfeitkitchallenge or tag us using #counterfeitkitchallenge and #ckcmarch2021).

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


  1. A fabulous kit Lori, especially the embellishments. Enjoy using them, I know you will.

  2. Such a lovely kit! I love that you've expanded on the craft theme a little with sewing machines and such. So cute. Also love that this is a smaller kit for you! x

  3. How fun to do less 12 x 12 and include a 6 x 6. I think I have that one, thanks for the reminder! Love all the bits and bobs as well. Very nicely kitted!

  4. Great kit this month, Lori! Your blue stripe paper really drew my attention and all of those lovely embellishments!

  5. I'm with you in the sticker book elements - I threw in about 4 or 5 half used sticker sheets and a sticker book in my version too. Thought it'd be a great way to use up lots of them all at once.

  6. Wonderful looking kit Lori and yes Pink Fresh is a great addition to this kit with having similiar elements :) I brought some into my kit too. Awesome to have planned some pictures to scrap too

  7. Great kit, Lori. Great idea with the sticker books, they seem to last forever.
