and their Add-On kit:
If you would care to see my original blog post about it, with more details about the products I included, you can find that here: Counterfeit Kit Club (the original post). Since that kit, I have learned many things about my style of crafting, counterfeiting, and photography! When Bethany gave us this challenge this month, she asked us to be inspired by those original kits, and also, the Magpie Box for this month:
So, let the vintage-y, crafty goodness ensue!
First up, the color scheme! I decided to take it in a different direction this time, as I have found that most of the year I prefer to craft in softer colors, and so have an abundance of stash in those softer colors as well. (Oh, who am I kidding. I have an abundance of stash in many colors!). But my last kit was very bold and bright, so I am in the mood for soft, feminine, and vintage colors. The best part about this challenge? You are not locked into one particular style of kits (I would probably get bored!). You are using your stash, so it is stuff that you already love (hopefully-if you have stuff you don't like, you should probably sell or donate it! Side note-I went through my paper about a month ago and weeded out all of the papers that I was "forcing" myself to use, and donated them to my girls' school-it was such a relief! Because, let's be honest, most of us have more stash than we can use in a lifetime. Or is that just me? LOL!) I went with soft pinks, browns, creams and yellows for my Main kit, which I am calling "Spring Tea Party", since the papers, flowers, doilies, ribbons, and jars are all quite girly, and that is what this kit reminds me of!
