CKC Feb ’22

I love kit building and I am on the design team for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge project. We take an inspiration kit each month and proceed to replicate it, or as we say, counterfeit it. This is a free, friendly group that helps inspire you to use up supplies you already own. We are not about needing to buy the latest and greatest thing (though we won’t stop you if you enjoy new crafty goodies😉 ).

It is my turn to host a kit for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge team. This is my first time hosting so I’m pretty excited! Check out the inspiration kit I chose for this month. It is the Denim & Blush Modern Memory Keeping Kit from Coca Daisy for Feb 2021. I love this kit for the bold navy and softer blues, pinks and corals. Plus yellow. Don’t forget yellow! It has plenty of embellishments to inspire me and an ever so slight bit of Valentine’s goodness. And since this kit is sold out it gives us the perfect reason to counterfeit it!

As the kit host, I get to choose a guest designer for the month. I’m happy the Gretl Dixon agreed to play along with us this month! You can find her work on her blog. If you read the CKC kit reveal blog post then you can get to know Gretl a little bit by seeing her photo and reading her bio. Do leave her some love to make her feel welcomed!

When I chose this kit I thought I’d build one big kit. But as I was working I realized that this month is a LOAD month (Layout A Day challenge hosted over at ScrapHappy). Since LOAD leads me to tell a myriad of stories, I wanted products that would have different feels to them so things wouldn’t get repetitive. That is when I got the idea to create 5 mini kits! Yes, I could have thrown all this stuff into one giant kit, but by breaking it down this way it will help limit the choices I need to make when creating. Sometimes too many choices is overwhelming. If I make the choices ahead of time, then when I sit down to craft that part is already done!

So take a look at these 4 kits (yes I did say earlier that I have 5, but you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see the final one, for, um, reasons 😉 ).

You can hear all my thoughts that went into each kit in my video.

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

Here’s the full hop link list

Have fun kit building and don’t forget to show off your stuff over on the CKC Facebook group or tag us on Instagram @counterfeitkitchallenge or use #counterfeitkitchallenge.

  1. You are such a pro at all of this – the videos, the kitting, the Master Forger of Ceremonies role this month. I really admire your strategy with the kit each month & can’t wait to see the unveiling of kit #5 tomorrow!


  2. I love the idea of the four mini kits, especially with LOAD this month! Great kit and thank you for the great inspiration kit this month!
