CKCB Guest Designer (ME!) and a BLOG HOP!! {LONG POST}

Sometimes mail goes to my SPAM folder...thank goodness I don't automatically delete them cause lo & behold, there was one from Meridy asking me to the be the Guest Designer (Counterfeiter) for the April Counterfeit Kit Blog Challenge!!  Of course I said YES!! If you've never heard of the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog, well, it's a blog where they choose a kit from a popular kit club (for inspiration) and challenge YOU to create a "counterfeit kit" using supplies you already own! To introduce the inspiration kit, we do a HOP to inspire you! As the APRIL GDT I'm up first so you gotta read (and ooh and aaah) over all the deets!

April's kit to counterfeit comes courtesy of GOSSAMER BLUE (love them) and of course I loved their kit right away! I'm a big fan of yellow, teal and flair so....


Here's my take on the MAIN KIT:

I really searched for striped paper but it seems like I had none so I stuck with the colors :)
* I'll repost my kit w/ the details tomorrow but know that the Awesome printables are courtesy of Tiina from Miss Tiina.com  in case you wanna go print some stuff now for your kit.  I don't do PL so I had to find some free printables!

AND, since I'm the Guest CounterfeiterI HAD to do my version of the Add-on Kit!
THEIRS:
MINE: 
paper hoarder here so I have 3 6x6 packs to pick from

and I can't just use 1 roll of washi so I will just use as many as I can!

Easy right???  Next on the stop is  Andrea P from Snapping Monsters !!
LET'S HOP so you can see what the DT has done! 
In addition to our "counterfeit" challenge, we will also include a few other challenges (to actually USE these kits), tutorials, and another blog hop toward the end of the month for everyone to SHARE their "counterfeit kits" and their creations with us! Happy Hopping !

Fab kit and thanks for the link to the printables :)

You are going to rock it out this month with that black/yellow/grey as the base. I bet you will pump it up with rich colours and lots of layers.

Margie said...

Love your kit and just all around love you! :)
I do love me some Glitz Design and Elle's and have some of both hanging around the studio. I love when I have some fun goodies that are in the kit. It is a great place to start building from.

I was GD last month and it was a BLAST!!! Can't wait to see all the goodness you get from this kit.

Have a Blessed and Beautiful day ~~ dawn

LOVE your kit, Kate! You did a great job counterfeiting-and enabling! I have the wooden butterflies from Recollections, but have not seen their words. I might have to make a trip to Mike's today! Thanks for sharing!

Spectacular kit! I see some wonderful things in there and of course you must include ALL the washi. It is a scrapping staple, right?!! Love the add-on too!

Hi there. I really like your kits, they are good take-offs on the GB ones - very much the same feel to them. Enjoy all those tempting goodies!
