010116 CKC January Counterfeit Kit Reveal

From all of us at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog:

Aaaah, January... planning lots of scrapping this month.
Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to choose one of

 kits from Scarlet Lime as your jumping off point for inspiration.
We are not specifically making planner kits this month, but the lively colors & patterns 
of Christy Tomlinson's creative kits should be a delightful inspiration for your use.

Let's take a look inside the Magic Blue Box!

I was fortunate to have an old 6 x 6 "She Art" paper pack by Christy, 
so I took the easy way out & used that as my foundation.

I added embellishments based on the inspiration:

October 2015 Planner Society kit

Here's my January 2016 "Less is More" kit.

You may have noticed the absence of alphas.
I may not need them! I will leave you with that bit of mystery...

Don't forget to tune in on Monday for our Forgeries on the Fourth post,
where you can link to posts that can help you make your own favorites
 yourself by shrinking, not growing, your stash!

Only two more stops on the hop, hop, hop!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Ooh, I don't usually like tassels - well, I wouldn't know how to use them on a layout - but yours are rather fab... I may be tempted to have a go!

  2. I agree those rainbow tassles are stunning. I loved the way you built your kit and I'm intrigued by the lack of alphas ...
    Happy New Year!

  3. Wow - what a beautiful mix of colors and the rainbow tassels are just divine! I like the little clips and acrylics too and will definitely be checking back in for the mystery of the missing alphas!

  4. How interesting to see that you used the same inspiration kit as I did (kinda, sorta), but with such different results. Of course, I love that you used Christy paper as the basis for yours as well. And I think you've included a lot of personality in such a few embellishment. What a great kit to start 2016.

  5. Beautiful kit, Leslie! Can't wait to see how you use it!

  6. Let me guess? YOu are going to forge your alphas? So fortunate to have the designers papers to begin your kit. Alas, none of that in my world. btw, I once wrote a short story, where the main character's name was Les Ismore.

  7. Those tassels are cute and so easy to make.(A great way to use up embroidery cotton too) I love your kit,fresh bright colours and pretty OA papers.

  8. a fabulous kit to start the new year! The tassels are a highlight for sure and I just know that you will be delighting us on Monday with more information about some Queen of Forgery items. I love the concept of less is more - same for me this year! Scrap on Sister!

  9. Love this kit! The tassels are fabulous! I can't wait to see how you use them!

  10. So cute, love those tassles!

  11. Oh, doesn't that 'She Art' collection make the perfect base for your kit? Your embellishments are also fantastic (and I'm betting that there are some fantastic forgeries in there.) Happy to have a little mystery .... x

  12. me Likey! Wish I would've had some of those SHe Art papers! Love that felt floral adds!

  13. Great minds! I have that She Art papers too (12x12 though)! I love them and have been kind of hoarding them. My bad. I've used a snippet here and there but I don't think I've used an entire sheet anywhere. So pretty.

    I love all of your extras too.


Would love to know you've been here! Feedback most welcome
