040120 CKC April Kit Reveal

Coronavirus ( COVID-19 ) meme

Sad but true, but shared creativity can be a marvelous virtual interaction in these isolated times. I can't imagine a more cheerful & delightful group to share it with than Counterfeit Kit Challenge!

First let's welcome our April Guest Designer, Mel Davis (includes direct link to her IG account). Make sure to visit & take a look at her lovely work.

 Such a lovely soft springtime palette for our inspiration kit this month from Master Forger Clair.
Cocoa Daisy Orchard Park March 2020 Memory Keeping Sticker Kit
I took my inspiration from this detailed shot of the Traveler's notebook kit papers plus this sweet sticker set from Pebbles:

Take a look at The Good Life.

My papers:

2012 Echo Park/This & That "Swirls", 2016 BasicGrey/Saturday Morning "Sleep In", 2018 Pinkfresh Studios/Indigo Hills 2 "Valley", 2017 Pinkfresh Studios/Let Your Heart Decide "Whim", Webster's Pages/Brandin O'Neill "Tickled", 2019 AC Amy Tangerine/Picnic in the Park "Aloha Leilani", 2018 One Canoe Two/Saturday Afternoon "Afternoon Roses", 2009 BasicGrey/Nook & Pantry "Dishes" (modified).  

A little closer peek:

I especially love the watercolor effect throughout the inspiration kit & may be using that this month to enhance my projects. (I might have done a little GPVRT - global pandemic virtual retail therapy - at They had a 40% off sale)

Not to make light of what is happening, you understand. I am documenting it, and that may be the main focus of utilizing this kit in April. Accordingly I've included a lot of phrases that I feel may be appropriate & useful, plus I'll be printing free Covid-19 printables as I go. I will share those links in the CKC FaceBook Community.

Now go check out the rest of the MASTERfully creative goodness from our Design Team!

  1. Wonderfully inspired kit to be playing with this month :) I almost pulled out the same speech bubbles :)

  2. I adore everything about your kit, from the papers to the embellishments that you’ve chosen. Great job! I can’t wait to see what you create! Stay well!

  3. You have put together a beautiful kit, Leslie! I love your mix of papers!

  4. Well done Leslie. You've kept the softness and added an Easter touch as well.Those tassels and paperclips are so cute!

  5. Your kit is just lovely, Leslie. I especially love that you included a bit of the navy from the inspiration kit. I really think it adds a little 'something, something' to all of those beautiful soft tones!

  6. A positive attitude and a pretty kit - you got it all going on, I'd say.

  7. Leslie: I like the punch of color too that you've injected into your copy-cat kit for April! Lovely vibrant papers and fun embellishments to get creative with! And I've seen your forgery paper, too, and can't wait to see how you use it!


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