NSD - a Counterfeit Kit

Its National Scrapbook Day - I can hear my husband laughing - and so I'm doing some scrappy things today.

I'll be keeping up with the challenges as I can over at Creative Crop, so hopefully I'll be able to post the results of those here at some point.

My first task was to put together a Counterfeit Kit for the May challenge. The inspiration kit this month is from WIP Kits:


I was most inspired by the colors - green, red and yellow. Here is my take:


Since I use cardstock so much, I added 6 sheets of cardstock. Mine happens to be all Bazzill this time, in shades of green, red and yellow.

I have 8 sheets of printed paper rather than 10:
     Trunk from the Pebbles Tree House Collection
     Sunset from the Pebbles Tree House Collection
     Pearl from the Pebbles Linnie Bell Collection
     Dots from the We R Memory Keepers 72 & Sunny Collection
     Gazebo from the October Afternoon Detours Collection
     Battenburg Love Notes from the Making Memories Love Notes Collection
     Green Apple from the Sassafras Lass Serendipity Collection
     Monday from the Cosmo Cricket girl Friday Collection

For letter stickers I used Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type in Yellow and Sassafras Lass letters in Script.

I subbed plain white shipping tags for the colored tags.

I also embellished the kit a bit and added border stickers from Crate Paper Neighborhood collection and Clear Stickers from the Little Yellow Bicycle Clothesline collection.

For the Die cut Collection, I substituted journal spots from Jillibean Soup and various die cuts from the My Minds Eye Quite Contrary collection:


The yellow dot ribbon was replaced with yellow scrunchie ribbon. I also added white pom pom trim, green pom pom trim, red ricrac and some twine. I am subbing Girls Paperie brads from the On Holiday collection for the Basic Grey brads.


Instead of dimesional chipboard, I've added Pebbles Chips from the Tree House Collection.


I further added to the kit with some felt items gathered from various sources:


Love how this kit turned out...and I'm totally ready to USE it!

Peace, ya'll!
