So, now onto MY kit for September!
Summer has been fun...crazy, non-stop fun. So much fun that at times (really, just now at the end) it didn't seem like much fun anymore. I think that means it is time to re-charge and re-group. The kids will be back to school in a few days (which brings on a whole other set of busy-ness), but I will have a chance to tend to things around the house, and perhaps even get in some scrapping during the day. I am looking forward to that very much.
This brings me to my September kit which was inspired by Citrus Twist's July Add-on called, "Adventure". (Note: This was one of many kits from which we had to choose. Be sure to scroll down to JULY. Check out all the options here.)
Here's the one I chose:
I definitely feel like I've had more than my share of adventures this summer, so I focusedon the gorgeous turquoise featured in this kit and created a calming and peaceful collection. Take a deep breath, exhale slowly and enjoy the serenity of my September Counterfeit Kit...
Let's head over to the towel bar first to see the foundation of the kit:
A cut-a-part sheet from the Pier Collection by Crate Paper and some serene and tranquil patterns will be sure to relieve the stress. I didn't want to fret too much when assembling this kit, so I left out solid cardstock. I'll pull those pieces as needed. Ahhhhh...I'm feeling more relaxed already!
Let's check out the embellishments over by the candlelight.
Some sparkly flourishes and puffy chipboard clouds set the mood. Just behind the glass carafe is a 6x6 paper pad by Crate Paper that is also featured in the inspiration. And what says "peaceful" better than a delicate and lacy butterfly?
Washi tape, in a variety of soothing colors and patterns, hangs out on the mosaic soap pump. Hoping to finally use that acetate piece tucked behind those turquoise metallic Thickers. The pattern and frosty feel of the plastic almost has a shower curtain feel.
Some very old, but very perfect My Minds Eye flocked chipboard letters will give a softness to my titles, as well as those delicate paper fern leaves. Not as easy to see all the way to the far left, there's a sticker sheet filled with Zen-like words to get your "ommmm" on!
You'll notice an Eiffel Tower image in the inspiration kit. While I'm not looking for an adventure this month, I had to throw in the Eiffel Tower images I had in my stash. Dreaming about a day in Paris while soaking in a bubble bath sure sounds relaxing to me...and no stressful airport security checks!
And here we are back to the beginning! How might you be inspired by the many kits available to us this month to counterfeit? Remember, you can try to match piece by piece or even just be inspired by one color and make it your own. Be sure to post your creations over on Mr. Linky here so we can leave you some love. The most important thing to remember is this: There's no right or wrong way to create a Counterfeit Kit...and that right there makes this challenge blog completely STRESS-FREE! (insert sigh of relief here!)
