March Counterfeit Kit Challenge March Full Kit Reveal and Blog Hop

Hello there.  It's been a while.  I'm sure you've read about and experienced some of the changes over at Counterfeit Kit.  I haven't played since January and that's by design.  Life has been quite busy, but I'm not willing to give up my scrappy space, so I devised a plan to keep my hand in CKC while giving myself some time to breathe between kits and blog posts.  Fellow Master Forger Stephanie is also in a busy time in her life with a new little one to care for, so we are sharing a Master Forger position.  You saw Stephanie feature her mini kit last month and this month I'll be sharing a full kit. So, that brings me to an every other month schedule.  I'm hoping to jump in more often when I can, but at least I'll know I have a bit more time to assemble my kit.  Sounds like a plan, right?  RIGHT!

Well, you know what they say about best laid plans....

Oh dear...

I kind of had a problem.  You entire scraproom was turned upside down.  My hubby was installing new flooring in the entire basement and everything had to be moved.  And I have to admit, my stuff wasn't in the best order before he moved it all to put in the flooring.  So, here I am...the day before the reveal...kitting and blogging away.  This new plan was supposed to avoid that!  ACK!

Oh well...

I managed to get things sort of back in order and sift through my stuff to put together my March Kit, most appropriately named,  FLOORED!

In my true topsy turvy fashion, I haven't introduced you to the inspiration, chosen by Master Forger Margie and created by Hip Kit Club.  It's their February 2017 offering and it's a beauty.

My kit adds a few more colors and less black than the inspiration, but I included camera and butterfly motifs, horizontal stripes and circles as created by bubbles.  A touch of black is seen in the pocket cards.  Hoping to mist or watercolor those butterflies to create the same vibe as the ones fluttering around in the inspiration.

Here are a few more close ups.

So, while I was "floored" on how I was going to possibly get my kit completed, it all worked things usually do.  (I'm getting wiser in my more mature years!)

I hope you aren't floored on how to approach this kit.  If you are, then just take inspiration from our guest designer, Raelene and the other Master Forgers.  Welcome, Raelene!  We are proud to spotlight you this month!

Visit them at their blogs here for plenty of inspiration.

Oh and by the way, yes...that is the new flooring you see behind my kit in my scrap room 
and I just adore it!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Bright and springlike, this kit suits how I am feeling right now perfectly! GReat counterfeit and I love the new flooring, too!

  2. Love it! Very light and airy--I love the camera paper!

  3. Nothing like a quickly approaching deadline to propel oneself into action. There is a cozy tone to your kit that makes me want to pull up a lap blanket and immerse myself in the bits and bobs. Your kits' personalities are so memorable. Glad you have found a way to stay involved as a MF.

  4. Another inspired reveal! I like that you changed it up just a bit but kept true to the inspiration with your color and patterns. What an upheaval to have new flooring going in your scrap space - here's hoping you're able to get everything back in order soon!

  5. I am "floored" at how you managed to pull such a lovely kit together in the midst of such turmoil! I'm so glad you pulled those mistable butterflies, a reminder to me that I have an untouched set of those myself!

  6. Great kit (adore the banner) & the floor looks FAB

  7. Great kit. Lots of cute bits to create with.

  8. Sweet looking kit :) Nothing like changes in the house to change your habits too, been there and we've done that a few times now :)

  9. Your kit is very much more your own style than the original I think with the softer tones and pretty designs. Perfectly inspired but perfectly you! I love it and dream one day of coming over to your scrappy basement and scrapping together! One day.... :-)

    I love that you've found a way to stay with us - sending love

    Three layouts this month?!? ;-)

  10. So many great pieces have turned into a beautiful kit! I love those colorful alphas, and that journalling card sheet is full of possibilities.... =)

  11. I like the narrower focus of your kit this month. Well curated, as always.

  12. Best laid flooring, best laid plans :) You've made up a fabulous selection - even at the last minute x

  13. I love that you brought in some more primary colors for you kit! Great job!

    We redid the flooring in our house right before the army moved us in 2015. I had to move all of my scrappy space into the kitchen/living room until hubby got it finished. I feel your pain!! Lucky for you that you were able to get some organization back into your stash to throw together a lovely kit. ;)
