June Counterfeit Kit blog hop


June is Build-Your-Own-Kit month at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog.
You should have arrived here from Jemma's blog. If you did not and would like to start at the beginning you can go here.
When I first saw that we were making our own kits I was a little worried. I like having an example kit. I like knowing what colors and patterns to start with. I like direction. Then I started looking through my stash and found some things that have never fit well into any kit. I decided that building my own kit was a great idea. Here is what I came up with.
10 patterned papers and four journal spots. My main colors are purple and green. I also have black, aqua, pink and white.
Eight cardstock and two alphabets. 
Three types of misc. embellishments: I chose ribbon, die cuts and little tags. 
Something messy:stickles/perfect pearls. Something old: brads. And a roll of old MM tape in place of the Washi.
Two stamp sets and one surprise item: I can't find the second stamp set that I wanted to use so here is one stamp set and my surprise item. The colors don't really match well, but I loved this when I bought it and never ended up using it.

The next stop on our blog hop is Julie Ann. I am sure you will love her kit.

Ha - I used old MM tape, too. At least I think that's what it is! I know it's not washi, but it's similar, right? Great kit!

What lovely colours. I'd never have combined them myself but I really like the overall look. Really lovely. Looks like a great kit to use.
