I am back on the Master Forgers' design team for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog again! When I had to step down last year, because of selling our house, packing, and moving-it made me sad, because I have such FUN making these kits! Well, I am happy to report that I am back on the team! Which means I am sharing a kit today for your August inspiration. We were asked to make up kits from our stash based on the fun and fantastic Studio Calico Penny Arcade kit:
And here's my stash kit that was inspired by Penny Arcade, "Summer Solstice":
This was a quick stash dive for me-luckily I know where all my stuff is now. I got the invite yesterday, and I had about 45 minutes to pull my kit and photograph it before I headed off to my kids' open houses for school. It was fun to just go with my gut and pull out the first thing that I thought of that would work for my kit. I started with the map print paper- I knew I had one very similar to the one in the SC collection in my Crate Paper Storyteller Paper Pad, and my kit just took off from there. I pulled a couple from Crate Paper's "The Pier" collection (yellow polka dot and doily clouds), the coral polka dot from Dear Lizzy's Polka Dot Party, yellow stars from American Crafts My Girl, a large monogram print from Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934, and 2 sheets from Glitz's Finley collection. I didn't have time to make fringe, so I grabbed a yellow ticket style washi and a white washed woodgrain washi instead, a couple of doilies, a template, a pack of stickers from Basic Grey, wood veneer from Studio Calico, brads from Cosmo Cricket, badges from Studio Calico, some new chipboard cameras. Oooops-got ready to photograph and realized I had forgotten the letter stickers-so I added in a pack of chipboard alphas from We R Memory Keepers. I am quite happy with my "quickie kit"- I may have to add in a bit of mist and cardstock later, but I am fine with that!
