This month, we are going to change it up a bit and let YOU pick what to counterfeit! With collection kits and coordinating embellishments so popular, we thought it would be a great idea to let you choose a collection from 2012 and find (or create) papers and embellishments from your stash to mimic the new collection.
Given such a loose set of rules, of course my head started spinning with creative ideas!! I went back and forth over my CHA Pin board , drooling over all of the scrappy goodies that I loved, and had so many favorites, that I couldn't seem to narrow it down! Finally, I decided that two of my favorite collections from CHA summer were Cashmere Dame by Glitz Designs, and On Trend by Crate Paper. (Links go to 2Peas, if you want to purchase these collections!)
They are just so fun and colorful!! So, I pulled from my stash to create a kit, which I am calling "Sassy Fashionista":
I was so inspired by this challenge, I decided to make a few page kits, as well! In the past couple of weeks, I have shared pages made from these kits!
I made a mini-kit based on this collection by Echo Park, "Fall Fever":
Here is my kit, Autumn Afternoon:
In this kit, I have papers from Graphic 45, Making Memories, The Paper Studio, and My Mind's Eye, Making Memories upholstery brads, a fall rosette, Thickers chipboard shapes, and some Studio G stamps.
I made a couple of pages with this kit already:
You can see more photos and details about these pages here.
My last kit is not really based on a collection, but a single paper! I purchased a sheet of this gorgeous paper from Studio Calico's Yearbook collection:
I simply made up a fallish sort of kit with these colors and prints that I thought would go well with it! My second autumnal kit, "Colors Of Fall":
In this kit, I have included Bazzill glazed cs, kraft cs, Patterned paper from Echo Park, American Crafts, and Studio Calico. Embellishments include: Thickers, ScrapWorks Flea Market letter stickers, Heidi Grace word stickers, polka dot kraft tags from Target, Basic Grey wood buttons, a Jenni Bowlin Bingo card, a burlap sack, and a couple of fall rosettes.
I hope that I have inspired you to get creative with your existing stash and pull a kit or a page kit! For more kit making inspiration, we are having a blog hop, so you can see all of the CKCB's Design Team's kits!
