June Counterfeit Kit

This month it seems like the ladies from Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog are doing something a little different.  Rather than copying a kit from a kit club, we've been tasked with copying one of the new lines from Basic Grey.  Here's the one I chose:
I was really drawn to the bright colours (I think everyone knows how much I love my brights!) and the geometric feel of some of the papers.  I also liked the idea of working some brown into my kit.  So, here are the papers I pulled from my stash:

Going from left to right, back to front, I have:

2 from Echo Park - "Paper & Glue"
3 from Simple Stories- "Vintage Bliss"
4 from MME - "Collectable"
2 from CTMH - I forget the name of the collection but it was a monthly promo kit
2 + a sticker sheet from Echo Park - "Everyday Eclectic"
2 from Kaiser Craft - "Take Note"

And here is a real mish mash of things that seemed to go:
Scraps of paper from CTMH and Simple Stories, wood veneer pieces from CTMH, brads from Stampin' Up, 2 packages of die cuts (one from Bo Bunny and one from Simple Stories), 2 bottles of acrylic paint, and a journaling card from Echo Park.

And that's it!  Kind of a small kit this month, but then again I'm not anticipating much crafty time in June, so maybe best not to be too ambitious.  I can always add more if need be!


  1. Lovely kit :) I like how you pulled in the scraps too :)

  2. The bright colors along with the brown make a great combination. And you're right, you can always add more when you run low. Have fun with your kit!

  3. You nailed the look of the BG line! I really like how all of your papers seem to even be working together. I think your kit will make for easy pages because it looks so good together. I look forward to your projects!

  4. This is an excellent counterfeit of that line. Well done!

  5. Looks gooood! I've picked Vivienne too, I just need to get on and sort the kit out now...

  6. love your kit and sometimes you'd be surprised how much you can do with a smaller kit!

  7. Very good counterfeit! Love your collection!

  8. Great kit and a super take on the original with all your brights but still working in some of the other colours too. the mix of embellies looks like a lot of fun. hope you have enjoyed using it this month! (yes, I know I'm late commenting!)
