July Counterfeit Kit Blog Hop & EXCITING NEWS!!!

So if you are hopping, you have come here from
the lovely Ashley's blog Ashley
if not, please go check out her beautiful blog.

Perhaps you will remember from an earlier post,
that I applied for the Design Team for the Counterfeit Kit Club Blog,

I MADE IT!!!!!


This is such a wonderful blog, and I feel so Blessed to be part
of this amazing and talented group of Design Team members.
They are such a wonderful group of ladies that are so positive
and sweet.  I am REALLY looking forward to my time on the
Design Team.  WOOT!!

So without further ado.....
The July Kit.

This is an amazing kit to counterfeit from The Scrapbook and Cards Today. 
Crop & Create: Delivered

So when I start counterfeiting a kit,
the first thing I do is take a good look at the kit,
and read the fine print, if you will.
I look at all the papers, and go through each sheet,
and if I'm not familiar with it, I look it up,
and try to get close in color and/or style.

So these are my patterned papers:
Dear Lizzy - Lucky Charm - Bright Bauble
Dear Lizzy - Lucky Charm - Float Away
Dear Lizzy - Lucky Charm - Blue Skys
Dear Lizzy - Lucky Charm - Pretty Poppies
Crate Paper - DIY - Painted Flowers
Kaiser Craft- Save the Date - Pinwheel Burst
Webster's Pages - Allison Kreft - Secret Rec
And the white cardstock with the green daisy's
is a sheet I DIY'd with some paint and a stamp.
I also included a Glitz Color Me Happy 6x6.

And the cardstock:
2 Kraft (Cream)
2 White
2 Pink (Light & Hot)

Simple Stories - Vintage Bliss - Bingo Cards
American Crafts - Amy Tan - Ready Set Go - Speech Bubbles
Dear Lizzy - Lucky Charm - Lucky Coin

Then the embellies:
You will see here a Camera Cut apart sheet,
Lace and Ribbon
Heidi Swapp Banner Pieces
Lots of die cuts and cut apart sheets

I have this sheet from the Simple Stories Summer collection
last year, and then there are some MME Collectible banners
and words card.  And some fun scrolly words.  Love those!

Some Thickers....
Yep there's that pink again.
I keep putting it in my kits.
I really want to get it used up.
Then some white ones I can color.

Lots of bits and bobs =)
Here are my go to stamp sets,
which is a MME and a Heidi Swapp.
They are just my favorite.
I also added this speech bubble set.
It's so lovely and never been used.
It so needs some love =)
Some lovely buttons and tiny clothes pins,
punched hearts and envelopes and some stick pins.
Funny fun!!!

I have some printables that need to get used,
and now is the time.  So I cut some apart and
also added some others from cut apart sheets.

This kit is so very fun and I am SO enjoying it!!!

I'm so excited to get started on the Design Team,
and make lots of fabulous pages!!

Now it's time to head to the lovely JimJam's blog at

And if you get lost along the way:  
Have a Blessed and Beautiful,
Krafty Kind of Day ~~
