A little bit of whimsy :)

Ready for a look at May's kit? 
Of course you are...

Gossamer Blue March 2017
I thought I could match up a lot of the papers from my Felicity Jane stash but that didn't pan out. I took a little different approach & took inspiration from the papers for the rest of my kit first.

Let's take a peek in the Magic Blue Box!

This paper put me in mind of these alphas.

The adorable critter paper bear reminded me of these.

The circular & multi-colored letters yielded this selection of alphas.

Cursive Thickers should help me make a large scripty word.

The charming books became frames.

 The "A" side of the polka dot paper had these great banners - I couldn't resist!

Here is the full set of papers that I selected.

I know - it's very lean for me! The yellow dot is the only one that is spot on (pun intended.)

 My full kit - "Where the Wild Things Are"

Eager to create with this one. 
Oops!!! Update (I forgot to post my alphas, lol...)

Make sure you don't miss a stop on the hop!
And check back on the 4th for our forgery tutorials & links.

Guest Designer Christy Strickler -

Remember that we now have a mini-kit option for our Master Forgers.
Stay tuned for that reveal on May 6th - you may find that a smaller kit suits you better!

 And make sure to share YOUR kit & projects with us on the Link-up Page, 
or on Instagram @counterfeitkitchallenge or #counterfeitkitchallenge.

I hope you enjoy the kit choice this month & challenges on the 12th & 18th!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Step by step there's a great kit in no time! Enjoy.

  2. I like the way you picked your kit elements this time.The transparent alphas will be lovely and bright to use. You have chosen the world's most popular children's book for your kit name too.I hope,like Max, that you enjoy your journey through your kit.

  3. Oh, it's lovely. It could almost be a mini-kit at that size. I love how each little element was inspired - and the collection of adorable creatures and whimsy.

  4. So cute! I love the mix of fun papers!

  5. I am going to go out on a limb and guess that you are planning layouts about the wildlife and critters that you encounter at the cabin? Using the less is more technique, you might find the layouts practically make themselves when there is less to consider and choose from. Or not. Looking forward to hearing about your experience with your minimalistic kit.

  6. Small kit but huge potential! Very cute!

  7. I really enjoyed the side by side comparison of your components to the original. You've inspired me to try a piece-by-piece approach next time; I usually work from the overall flavor of the kit. Those die-cut animals are just adorable - I'm thinking they would look quite at home on a page with some photos of your adorable grands!

  8. Love the inspiration of your kit and it's really nice to see the side by side comparison like Susan mentioned!

  9. I'm soooo late to comment this month but seeing your super slim kit is worth it! What layouts did you make with it? I also like the side by side comparison and realise that I do that a lot myself when making up the kit but never present it this way!


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