Welcome 2022!

After taking some time off in December to reorganize and refresh, I feel a bit rusty to be back on my media game. But the best way to get over that is to just dive right in.

So I’m back with a brand new kit build for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge team. Our Master Forger Cindy brought us this digital kit from Traci Reed as our inspiration this month. The great thing about digi is if you like it, you can easily just buy it! And for me, the extra great thing about Traci Reed is that she includes printable elements for those of us who are hybrid scrappers.

You can see my whole kit build via YouTube as usual or keep reading for the blog version.

There is a lot going on in that image, but the things that caught my attention first were the pattern papers, and flowers, hearts and bees. So that is the direction I took my kit.

First Traci’s papers…

And my choices…

While not exactly the same I pulled a yellow gingham, some scallop prints, some hexagons, green floral, red pattern and something with colorful stripes. I tend to love Traci’s muted color palettes but my papers weren’t there this month. I wanted to keep pulling papers to help mellow the color scheme but I made myself stop because my kits have been too big lately and I need to calm down a big 😉

On to embellishments… I focused on the flowers, hearts and bees that originally caught my eye. I also used some printable Traci Reed products that I already had on hand from her “The Love List” collection. My embellishments also lead me to adding in pops of black and pops of gold. And that will complete my kit for this time.

I hope you can follow along with the other designers and see how the interpreted their kits.

Have fun kit building and don’t forget to show off your stuff over on the CKC Facebook group!

  1. I really love your choice of papers and colors for this month. The bright colors are wonderful, especially as I look out my window and see nothing but drab skies. 😦 I can’t wait to see what you create.


  2. Pretty kit with a much more b-side flavor to it than the inspiration kit. Cannot wait to see what you whip up for your forgery on the 4th. Will it be multi-color?
