CKC Kit Build April ’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😉 ).

Our fearless leader, Lisa Hausmann, is our kit hostess for April. She chose a kit from Papers and Beyond called Follow Your Bliss. We are also welcoming Helen (DeRam) as our Guest Designer. She can be found on Instagram. Be sure to give her some love over there!

Here are just a few more detailed photos of what this kit has on offer.

This kit is loaded with Jen Hadfield and Vicki Boutin products. As I am a fan of both designers I happen to own a chunk of their work. So, taking in all this inspiration, and the fact that I have some of these designer’s paper lines, here is the kit I came up with.

The top row of papers come directly from the kit inspiration. The lemon paper replaced the bird paper, but if you look at the Jen Hadfield sticker sheet, there are lemons in there! The second row of paper are extras that I was inspired to add. The cups are a nod to the food theme in the Jen Hadfield stickers. The critters are in line with some Easter thinking. The gnomes go along with an icon on the Vicki Boutin ephemera that I added. And the shirts are there for the home theme that emerged from the Jen Hadfield supplies.

The embellishments started with a Jen Hadfield cut-apart sheet, much like the one in the inspiration papers. And I added in gold phrases, and Vicki Boutin die cuts. Plus birds, butterflies and feathers from many of the icons made for great embellies. I chose those in wood veneer inspired by the wood buttons. I also added corrugated cardstock for more wood vibe. I needed more texture so in with the twines. As I bonus I had that washi tape sitting on my desk from my recent washi review so I tucked that in as well. Add some alphas and the kit is complete.

You can hear my thoughts that went into all the choices I made for this kit in my video. There is also a sneak in there about what I have coming for the Forgery on the Fourth project.

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