Counterfeit Kit - July

Its that time again to counterfeit a kit.

This month Counterfeit Kit Challenge chose a kit that is a year old for inspiration.

The kit is the July 2010 Main Kit from Polka Dot Whimsy:

When I first got a load of this kit, I wasn’t sure I was going to participate. The colors felt a little too much for me and it seemed like there was an awful lot going on visually with this kit.

BUT I have that Girls Paperie On Holiday paper and thought I could hinge the entire kit on that.

So, I went after aqua, deep navy, bright yellow and red to and started shopping my stash.

Here's what I came up with (sorry...the color on this picture isn't the greatest...I took it at night.)

Here is what is in this one:

Printed Cardstock/paper:
The Girls Paperie On Holiday
Basic Grey Basics Table
Basic Grey June Bug Admiral
My Minds Eye So Sohpie In Love
Crate Paper Toy Box Collection Explore
Sassafras Vintage Yummy Pleasantly Puzzled
Rusty Pickle Get Your Tickets
Scrap Within Reach Industrial Park Market Street
Daisy D’s Railway Station (now there is an old one!)
Jillibena Soup Old World Cabbage Stew Caraway Seeds

Bazzill Maraschino
Bazzill French Vanilla
Bazzill Kevin
Bazzill Sugar Cookie
Kraft (misc)

Journal cards cut from scraps in my scrap bin
Making Memories Passport chipboard alpha
Travel Themed Sticko Stickers from EK Success
Collage Press Border Stickers
Bazzill Just the Edge in Red Devil
Jenni Bowlin Studio Play Date Banner Stickers
Jenni Bowlin Studio Mini Chalkboard Alpha Red
Jenni Bowlin Studio Mini Bingo Cards Red
The Girls Paperie Paper Girl Eclectic Chipboard alpha
My Minds Eye tickets
Misc buttons (most from Creative Café) in Red, Navy, Yellow, Aqua, and wood
Red Dot ribbon from Basic Basic

Now I have to decide...does this go to the convention with me or do I scrap a little bit!?!?!?


Peace, ya'll!!

Glad you were able to find some inspiration. I know it is hard if the kit doesn't speak to you. :) Really fun color choices for this month! I can't wait to see what you make!

Wowsers, I am drooling over your papers, they are gorgeous.

Nice kit! It can take a while sometimes to see how a kit can work for you, right? Always makes me glad I'm counterfeiting and not subscribing! Can't wait to see what you end up creating :)

That's what I love about this challenge!! Making kits out of our own stash means that we are making kits we will actually love-'cause we must have liked the stuff to buy it in the first place, right?

Linda said...

Great kit! My vote is to start scrapping. :)

I'm a bit late commenting on your kit, but it looks fab! I love that you chose one paper rom the inspiration kit and built your kit around that. I've done that before, too-and created some great projects! Can't wait to see yours. :)
