June Counterfeit Kit!!

Can you believe this is the sixth month of the Counterfeit Kit Challenge?! I just love it! If you've never heard of it, check out the blog. Every month we create a new kit, copying an "inspiration" kit by one of many gorgeous kit clubs available online. If you are anything like me, you spend hours drooling over some of these kits, and here is a great chance to make one of your own, using your own supplies.

This month, our inspiration came from a fun new club called Burlap and Buttercups. The kit is pretty, feminine, and shabby, and features many papers by Basic Grey Hello Luscious line. I fell in love with the soft sweetness of this kit, and tried to find similar items in my stash.

Inspiration Kit:

For my kit, I pulled some vintage inspired items from my supplies, including papers from the Crate Paper Restoration line. I made a few "copycat" embellishments by hand. The result was very old fashioned and whimsical. I am calling this kit "Grandma's House"!

My version:

Items included in my kit: Papers: Coordinating Cardstock - Bazzill, Fancy Pants - Road Show "Dilly Dally" & Lilac House "Needlepoint", Crate - School Spirit "Homeroom", Crate - Restoration "Ruffles", "Slipcover" (partial sheet), "Doilies", "Heirloom", and "Lace", October Afternoon - Thrift Shop "One of a kind", and Cosmo Cricket - Early Bird "Ribbon Sandwich".

Embellishments: Alphas - Thickers "Cream Soda", word stickers - October Afternoon "Thrift Shop", butterfly and flower dies - Cuttlebug "Naturals", Sew Brads - Crate Restoration, chipboard frames - handmade with threading water punch, handmade "Bloomers" (tutorial coming soon) bakers twine, corsage pins, and pearl ribbon from stash,
