CKC March ’22

I had a great time hosting the CKC for February but I am ready to sit back and let my teammate take the reins for March. Tara is hosting our kit this month. If you are new here, 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 goodiesūüėČ ).

The guest designer for this month is Anna of Piece Craft Love and you can find her on YouTube.

Before we go too much farther you should know that there is a special surprise offered by Anna. Check out the CKC blog March kit reveal for the details!

This time around we are drawing inspiration from a Citrus Twist Kit from March 2020 called Life Crafted, Weekender. Here is the over all photo and a gallery of details.

The neon bright colors are common to Citrus Twist (as their name implies!) but they are not my go-to colors. However, I did find some tones that came close and captured the spirit of the bright, happy kit.

I’m calling my kit Spring Tease since the bright colors and florals make me ready for my garden to start blooming! Yet this time of year in my neck of the woods we will have some warm sunny days that make you thing spring is here, only to go wet and gloomy again. I always call that weather the Spring Tease.

You can see all my choices and hear all my thoughts that went into this kit in my video.

For the brief version, check out these photos.

Several of those papers I printed off from the Traci Reed Here Comes the Sun freebie collection. If you want this collection you do have to hit several places to get all three parts, but honestly it is so worth it. I love Traci’s design sense and I own many of her collections. So, if I can support her by sending people her way, I’m happy to!

While I have a wide assortment of embellishments from Elle’s Studio (hearts), Concord & 9th (enamels), puffy & faux leather stickers (Citrus Twist), cut aprts (Scrapbook & Cards Expo, The Stamp Market, others) and more, most of my embellishments are again pieces from the Traci Reed collection. Since she offers “sticker sheets” that are super easy to print at home and then use a machine (Cricut, Silhouette etc) to cut for you, this makes embellies so much more affordable.

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