It's That Time Again!

Time for a new Counterfeit Kit!! And this month, Meridy and Beth have chosen a "Peach" of a kit for us to be inspired by! They chose the kit from September 2010 from the Sweet Peach Crop Shop. I counterfeited all of the September 2010 kits, and was most inspired by the "Juicy" themed kit. Here are my takes on the kits.

And Here Is Mine:

And The Sweet Peach's Embellishment Add-On Kit:


I grabbed some scraps and partially used letter stickers for this one, and made my own "Bella Blooms" (with coffee filters, yellow homemade shimmer mist, a heart punch, and a pearl brad). I also misted some plain white doilies, and die cut some flourishes with kraft paper and my Cricut.

And last but not least, I wanted to switch it up a bit this month, so I put together a "Counterfeit Digi Kit", mostly based on the colors from my Juicy themed kit.
