September Master Forgers Kit Reveal Blog Hop

Welcome to the September Counterfeit Kit Club Challenge kit reveal blog hop! This month, the kit we have chosen to be inspired by is the Scrapbook Circle Island Paradise kit:

I love the kit-but, it is sold out, and I know I have some older Basic Grey in my stash, along with some other goodies that will give me the same "feel". I found my kit from August to be a bit lacking in the embellishment area for my taste (not to worry, I had plenty of kits to scavenge, so I made do quite easily). But, I wanted to make sure I had plenty of coordinating embellishments within this kit to use. And I have sooo many embellishments that work and I want to use! Editing kits down to a manageable size is one of the biggest struggles of kit making for me. One day, I will find a perfect balance. Until then, I will be quite happy with this kit!
There are papers from Maggie Holmes, Dear Lizzy,Basic Grey, Carta Bella, and a few from DCWV's Mango Frost and Lemon Flower stacks. For embellishment, I have stickers,  a few frames, metal clips, and vellum letters from Basic Grey,  Glitz epoxy words, burlap Stickers from Little Yellow bicycle, I made my own glitter diecuts with my Cricut, DCWV Glitter cardstock, and the  Lucida Sans and Ma Sexy font (free on dafont.com!).I also have some triangle tags from Chic Tags, some buttons from AC, Recollections Flair, some yellow floss, and some cork paper with stamps to make my own cork embellishments .Grab a cup of coffee and have a hop around to the other design team members for loads of kit-making inspiration and fun!
Here's the list:

  10. Your papers truly give the same vibe as the inspiration, but you have totally made this your own. Love the inclusion of that vintage bird. The cork pad will be a great way to forge some of the embellies and the burlap pieces add to the natural feel. Have fun!

I had never heard of it, but it's pretty much the same thing I've been doing...except yours is so much more elaborate! I've spent the last hour checking out your blog and several others...I'm hooked!
