030118 CKC March Kit Reveal

March - ushering in the hope of Spring
 First let me introduce a ray of sunshine, our March
Counterfeit Kit Challenge Guest Designer, Libeeti Frenkel:

Hello to you, forgers gang! I'm Libeeti from Israel.  I'm a single mom of two teenager boys, aged 16 & 13.  My boys, and our life together, are the main subject of my scrapping, but to tell the truth - I scrap therefore I am.  Now seriously, scrapping for me is much more than documenting and preserving our memories. It became my outlet, my therapy.

I have another confession to share with you (and I know I'll have your full sympathy) - I'm a terrible scrap stash hoarder. This is the main reason I love Counterfeit Kit Challenge so much.  It makes me use all the pretty things I hoard. I was never a member of a kit club, and yet my scrappy nook is full of beautiful patterned paper, embellies, dies, mixed media goodies, etc.
I love making 12x12 layouts, mini albums and altered & DIY projects.  Lately I'm in love with making boxes.  My style can be described as mixed media, multi-layers, and having lots of embellishments.  I just can't stop adding more and more.  One of my challenges is to try and work in a CAS style.
Currently, I'm on 4 design teams: Stuck?! Sketches, CSI (Colors, Stories, Inspiration), The Robbin's Nest and Altair Art.
I love to learn new artistic ways to express myself, new techniques, etc.  I also love to share my creative process with others through my YouTube channel and my blog.  I would be happy if you visit me in my social media places: my blog, my FB page, my YouTube channel, my Pinterest.

Now, our Counterfeit Kit Challenge inspiration for this month!
"Hello everyone and happy March 1st! It's Susan Brochu here, taking my turn at selecting our inspiration for a month of using up our supplies.  My choice was definitely out of the box...the scrap box, that is.  Our inspiration for March is a kit I put together based on the formula Jill Sprott used in her stash-busting challenge series.  You can read all about Jill's concept and formula here on her blog.  I thought this was such a fun way to dig into our supplies and create a truly one-of-a-kind kit."

Here is what Susan put together to inspire us.

I was excited to see some familiar things as I began my rummage.
Let's open up the Magic Blue Box!

I'll start with showing you the papers - Susan's & then mine:

Pretty close, huh?
I'm really happy with my full kit below.

Don't forget to return on the 4th for our little freebie mini-class
of tutorials on how our amazingly creative Design Team
made some of the elements in our counterfeit kits. I feel like this is
one of the biggest perks you get from the CKC - new ways to make
that old, tired stash stand up & be counted as trendy!
