May Counterfeit Kit Club

So May Day was yesterday,
so that means that it is time for a new kit

This month's Kit is 
In fact, this month there are 2 kits.
The first one is a mini-kit.
Look at this cuteness.

And then the other one is a full kit.
Look how pretty.

So I started with the mini-kit.
I decided I would do them in two kits
just like at Polly Scraps.
I liked that idea.

So here are my papers.
(1) Amy Tan from American Crafts
(2) Serenade from Basic Grey
(1) On Trend from Crate Paper

Here are the B sides.
Yep, these papers are going to be FUN to use!!!

The only teal alphas that I have are from Authentique,
so I included those,
and then I also included these Sassafras gray alphas.
I miss you Sassafras =(

Here are my Stickers and Embellies.
On the right is a chipboard sheet.
I have had these in my stash for ever so long,
and they seriously need to be used.
So they made it in,
and then also included a sheet of Midway stickers and these banner stickers.
There are a few little kraft bags.
A couple I've dolled up =)
And then that orange and white little goodie at the bottom
is tissue paper.
I am LOVIN' using tissue paper on my LO's.
I love to sew on it,
and fringe it,
and melt it,
OH MY!  =)
There is also a little twine there to.

So that is my mini-kit.....

Now onto the main kit.
I do not have ANYTHING Nautical at all.
So I decided to kind of play off the colors,
but also for some reason,
I thought maps kinda fit a Nautical theme.
So I went with that.

Let see.....
We have some American Crafts Lucky Charm.....
Crate Paper DIY (a personal fav right now)
and some Fancy Pants.
And I think that pink polka is an American Crafts too.
I am really loving these papers.

And the B sides.....
Look how fun and versatile.

And I pulled just a few sheets of cardstock.
Just in case =)

And the embellies.....
You will see two Alpha stickers.....
and yes you are reading that right .50 for that sheet of Alphas.
I got 2.
I love my LSS!!  

There is a little Twiney Love there.....
some wood veneer.
Yes I know there are some typewriters in there, 
but one of my papers on the other side is typewriters.
I thought I might end up using them,
so I added them.
There are also birdies and some words.
Also two Washi's.....
One Yellow Wood Grain.....
and One Blue and Yellow circles.
There are some yellow buttons too.
I also included some heart cut outs
and some sequins
along with some flair.
I do not have any enamel dots,
this maybe something I try to make myself,
but for now,
I added some flair.

So there you have it,
my kit for May.
I am really looking forward to making a serious dent in these kits,
using scraps and all!!!
Scraps seems to be taking over!!
I want to use ALL the bits and pieces this month,
at least my paper bits anyhow =)
Let's see how I do.

Have a Blessed and Beautiful,
Crafty Kind of Day ~~
