Mid March Counterfeiting!

When we (the CKCB designers) were asked by Beth and Meridy if we wanted to make a page kit for our fellow counterfeiters to copy, I jumped at the chance!  I was given a theme of "Fun and Games", and I went off on a hunt for a kit to "copy". I was inspired by 2 different kits, "Best. Day. Ever.", by Scrapbook Circle, and the March Paper Posies kit.  I had a few  (3 or 4) of the Dear Lizzy Neopolitan papers that I mixed with a few older papers, from the Girls Paperie, Making Memories, Jillibean Soup, and Prima. I also added in a few embellishments that I got from swaps (the pinwheels and rosettes, and some ancient Making Memories butterflies from my stash, and some fun finds from Tuesday Mornings and Marshalls- the Dear Lizzy Mixtape (from one of her older lines), the stamps, Canvas BG tags, and the Dear Lizzy Thickers. I also printed out several digistamps to color and add as embellishments/use for cards. The only thing I bought specifically for this kit was the smoky platinum sheer ribbon. It wasn't ruffled, so I bought a sheer ribbon with wired edges,and pulled the wire to ruffle it on one side.
*Money Saving Tip: If you just HAVE.TO.HAVE. the newest CHA goodies, do like I do...just pick up a few sheets of your favorite paper and mix it with your older/handmade stash!
If you want some fun polaroid frames and mason jar digi stamps, here are some links to freebies I found on the web:

We were also asked to choose a sketch and make a page...I chose the sketch, but haven't gotten the page made yet. I'll share the page as soon as I get it finished, I promise!

Here's the sketch from the Paper Variety for you to try if you would like:


  1. Gorgeous kit lovely soft colours all very spring like too

  3. Beautiful kit! Love how well the older items mixed with the new goodies!!

  4. Oh this is a great kit - I have several of those goodies in my scrap stash right now, paper and tape from American Crafts and I love those canvas tags from Basic Grey's Kioshi line. As soon as my day-tripping travels are over this month, I will take a stab at that sketch.

  5. Beautiful kit! I love all the colors and the goodies!
