030117 March CKC Kit Reveal



 I am
#soreadyforspring

and thanks to Master Forger Margie's kit choice for March, I'm beginning to believe it's possible!

 Joining us this month is our Guest Designer Raelene. Checking out her blog to get to know her better took me to her February listing of monthly scrap challenges - awesome! Please give her a hearty welcome & lots of love on her posts this month.

Hip Kits Club provides our inspiration kit with their February selection:

Here is my "Inky Fingers Again" March kit:


That beautiful 2015 Basic Grey/Tea Garden/rose hip floral at the top gave me a close match.
The black & white camera is a mere scrap likely to be colored & fussy-cut for an embellishment.
The bold stripe, polka dot & bird/butterfly papers will be featured in our Forgery on the Fourth post.
The black & white brushstroke is from 2015 Felicity Jane/That One Day collection.
The black & white vine print & the small script is ancient stash of unknown origin on flimsy paper.
The tan diamond paper is a 2015 Crate Paper/Poolside with a good B side for this kit.
Last but not least is the ultimate stash buster - the multi-colored Skeeter's Sunsations - "An exclusive product from Paper Adventures" - from 2003!

2014 Maggie Holmes embellishment pack, 2015 American Crafts Thickers puffy embellishments pack, ancient stash of rub-ons from the Dollar Store, a few packs of goodies from Felicity Jane, gold glitter Thickers, 2011 chippy birds from the dollar bin at Joann that are a great match to the stamp set I used on a forged paper, plus one last forged element - the gold heart.



So happy to have gotten back to counterfeiting this month! Felt great to have "Inky Fingers Again"

  3. Spot on! I scrolled up and down a half dozen times, comparing the two kits. My favorite part is the ancient archived artsy paper. Way to bust the backlog! Then again, I think my favorite part is the forgery paper. The birds are so cute. Ah but wait, that sheet from Basic Grey Tea Party. I have that and I L-O-V-E it! Ok, ok......my favorite part of your kit is......YOUR KIT!

  6. Just gorgeous, Leslie! I love your forgeries - they are the same papers I was considering tackling, so I am excited to see how well yours turned out! Also loving your inclusion of some (much!) older stash.
