If you have ever browsed through those great monthly scrapbook kit clubs and admired their beautiful kits...but knew you needed more supplies, like a "hole in the head"...you know who you are (you're the one with TONS of supplies and embellishments in your ever growing scrapbook stash)...this challenge is for you!The Challenge
On the 5th of every month here at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog, we will choose a kit from a popular kit club (for inspiration) and challenge you to create a "counterfeit kit", using just the supplies you already own. And to be fair, just in case you need the "inspiration" kit, we will only feature current club kits, because we're nice like that!
In addition to our "counterfeit" challenge, we will also include a few other challenges (to actually USE these kits), a few tutorials (for creating your own embellishments), and a blog hop (toward the end of the month for everyone to SHARE their "counterfeit kits" and their creations)!
We challenge you to jump right in, join us, be inspired, create, and share your work! We can't wait to meet you!
Their February Challenge is to Counterfeit the Scraps of Darkness kit as pictured here:
The CHALLENGE is to use this kit for inspiration. How, you ask? Well, there are many ways to go about this. Here are a few ideas...
- We hope you all find some inspiration in the kit we choose this month!!! If you aren't sure where to begin, check out the "Hints and Tips" page of our blog for some help.

My Take On the Challenge
Here is my Main Kit, it's my first time and since I'm re-arranging and re-sorting through my scraproom, I took a really quick and haphazard photo.
I've made several projects so far. A layout inspired by the Big Picture Class "Embrace Imperfection"...
