100121 October CKC Kit Reveal & Blog Hop


October 2021

  This month our Counterfeit Kit Challenge Master Forger of Ceremonies is Tracey!

 The Kit I have picked for October is the May Hip Kit Club kit - it is full of beautiful bright spring colours. There are tags, labels, stickers and fun ephemera die cuts that are all singing out to be forged and scrapped. What really called my name in this kit is the American Craft Paper "Let's Go" from the Buenos Dias collection, the fun colourful world map has me wanting to reach for some of my many travel photos, it made picking this kit very, very easy. - Master Forger Tracey

May 2021 Hip Kit Club Main Scrapbook Kit

 I loved the map, too, and had big ambitions to forge it but lacked the skill! I did find a world map paper in my stash & have a plan for it. I analyzed the kit papers & made a list. My stash search yielded surprising results! I've done a side by side below:

Map unidentified, yellow/graph Vicki Boutin 2020 Color Study "Abstract"

Mine is Vicki Boutin 2020 Color Study "Sketch Book"

Mine is from Cocoa Vanilla Studio 2021 Sunkissed "Growing Wild"

Mine is Vicki Boutin 2020 Color Study "Palette"

Mine is Vicki Boutin 2020 Color Study "Pretty Things"

Mine is Cocoa Vanilla Studio 2017 Wild at Heart "Grow Wild"

Mine is Bella Blvd 2019 Monsters & Friends "Lil' Pumpkins"

Mine is Vicki Boutin 2020 Color Study "Color Wheel"

Mine is Wild Whisper 2021 Ledger & Script

Mine is Vicki Boutin 2020 Color Study "Linear"

I also have an alpha set in my toolbox this month to add the sentiments for a forgery! I hope it was relatively easy to see how each choice was inspired by the original. Care to see the b-sides?

I am loving the thought of using this exuberant color palette! Here's the full kit:

  1. A beautiful and well matched kit Leslie. Especially like the Prima flowers with pictures in the centres, I'm lusting after those.

  2. Great take on this month’s inspiration kit! I love all the colors!

  3. Great Kit! So many bright, happy colors to work with. I really like your multi-colored alphabets.

  4. The B sides look so great to me, maybe they should be the starting line-up?

  5. Fab kit! I always love Vicki Boutin papers when I buy them and then stall out on getting them used. So I can't wait to see what you do with yours.

  6. Beautiful kit. Love how you did the B sides

  7. Loved seeing your side-by-side comparisons for your choices.

  8. Terrific Kit! I would buy 2 of these! One for now and one for...just cause!
