The pops of orange really grabbed me as I'm sure I am suffering from a bit of the winter blahs. So, I focused mostly on color scheme this month and ran with the orange and turquoise combination. Here's the kit I created that has me totally smitten this month:
There are a few papers I chose as a direct counterfeit like the wood tone, the sketch-like feathers and the map paper, but the others were added in as I just thought they had the same feel as the ones in the kit. I have to say that the more I counterfeit, the more I can do it by gut instinct. Like anything else, the more you do it, the more confident you become in your decisions and the easier the whole process becomes.
The wood grain alphas nestled in the orange soda six pack will serve me well in "popping" on the title on my layout. I must say that I will probably dig into my Thickers drawer to add more along the way. You know that's totally ok, right? (Shhh...it will be our little secret!)
My kit presentation wouldn't be complete without showing you my printer's tray. I added some cork elements as featured in the inspiration and HAD to include those wood grain polaroids which were an exact match. The circular wood veneer pieces give a nod to the sunburst looking Studio Calico stickers. I may have to glitter those babies up with some orange glitter. And how could I not include that SMASH orange washi tape housed in...wait for it...AN ORANGE POP CAN! So perfect!
A frosty mug and a crazy straw will quench my thirst while all these yummy supplies will satisfy my scrappy needs!
So, if you're like me and have a crush on the color orange this month or something else grabs you in the inspiration, find your angle and create a kit you will be smitten by!
Be sure to "POP" in and say hello to all of my fellow Master Forgers, with Margie being next on the hop. I know they will all have blog posts overflowing with inspiration for you. Also, please give a warm CKC welcome to our guest designer, Janine. She is sure to inspire you the entire month. Welcome, Janine!

BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE...
A Kit Building Tip: You may be counterfeiting, but treat your kit like the real deal! Name it - just like a pet! LOL! Photograph it with a prop or two. Have it accessible in a box - just like how you would receive it from one of the fancy kit clubs. Treating it as such will give you a crush on it and inspire you to USE it!
Thanks for stopping by!
