Imitation IS the sincerest form of flattery really....

By kate blue - Tuesday, February 22, 2011

and scrapbooking really isn't original, we are all just imitating "something" that we've seen; doesn't have to be a layout; could be a work of art in a museum, an ad, a photograph, a quilt...art is always a reinvention of the wheel in a way...it's anything that our eyes, mind or brain captures...so one of my blog buddies hipped me to this site accidentally (she left a comment and I went to her blog and then hopped there since I always hop to new blogs that way)..anyway, for those of us who  HOARD have a paper/embellishment supply, THIS site called Counterfeit Kit Challenge was right up our alley!  Reuse, reduce, recycle right ??? So anyway, they take a current popular kit club from the web, get inspired by it, then guide you to use your stash to re-create it! Their challenge is for you to create  your own custom kit, share it and then share your creations !
This month, their chosen ONE was the Feb kit from Scraps of Darkness shown here:

and so I challenged myself to round up some supplies that I already had both used & unused  to create this:






I chose to of course include 3 sheets of my "go-to" black cardstock as a freebie, then I added:
  • 6  12 x12 papers Jenni Bowlin Red & Black III
  • 1   12 x12 misc journal PP ?? maybe Cosmo Cricket ??
  •  2 6 x6 sheets GCD Studios Winter Wonderland papers
  • 1 pack Prima rhinestones
  • leftover pack Fiskars quote stickers
  • Maya Road rose trims pieces
  • 2 Melody Ross for GCD Studios die cuts
  • Making Memories star brads
  • Making Memories 5th Avenue piece journaling sheet
  • Making memories metal accents
  • leftover heart chipboard
  • Jenni Bowlin cream vintage buttons
  • Cosmo Cricket tiny type alphas
  • Creative Imaginations piece overlay
  • Jenni Bowlin ledger banner stickers
I'm not a big flower fan so that's why I don't have any in MY kit but may make my own after I get started-will reveal some projects this week!  I challenge you to join up HERE to to get that stash used!~  Maybe we could even do a kit trade to see what folks come up with!
