June Counterfeit Kit

Just a quick post today for the June Counterfeit Kit Challenge.  This month's theme is a little different, and I'm excited for the challenge. We have a list of kit content categories, so here's my list:


10 pattern papers: I little bit of everything - some great B sides for extra flexibility
8 cardstocks - some neutral colors to use with the papers
2 alphas - A bit of cheating....I chose a sheet of LilyBee minis (with 6 alphas on the sheet)and a package of Thickers (somehow I forgot the Thickers in the picture)
3 embellishments - Jillibean ribbons and a punch-out sheet, and Melody Ross glass paper clips
4 Journaling spots - a 7 Gypsies card and other odds and ends
1 Roll of Washi tape - I don't have any Washi, so I subbed a role of OLD (I think Making Memories) tape with an old book print pattern on it.
2 stamp sets - I chose a Technique Tuesday date stamp and a Stella and Rose set
1 Messy item - I'm going to use some paint (not pictured)
1 old item - A set of slide mounts.
1 surprise item - I picked DecoArt Triple Thick Gloss Glaze. It's perfect for adding some shine to anything, so I thought it might be a good extra for making embellishments from all that paper.

The next hop stop is Susanne at http://www.snapsandsnippets.blogspot.com/, so be sure to visit her new kit, too!

  2. Lovely paper selection :0) I don't think it's cheating to use a multi alpha sheet - I did exactly the same!!! ;0) Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

  5. You have a great mix of patterns in your paper selection. I like the colors that you went with and what a great old item: slidemounts. I have a ton of those around here. I haven't brought myself to throw them out.
