This Month's Inspiration Kit... 
The February 2012 Inspiration Kit is your choice of two kits released in January and February by Scrapbook Circle.  The first choice is their Valentine's Themed Kit called "You and Me", the second choice is their December Kit called "Note to Self".  Feel free to counterfeit one or both kits!

I decided to do my kit this month all digi.I pulled some kraft papers as inspired by the inspiration kit. Also added the herringbone inspired by the paper in the inspiration kit. Then the other papers were from Valentine-type digi kits that I had. For elements, I had the Jenni Bowlin Bingo card from when she used to sell digi at (now closed). I added in a honeycomb element from Rhonna Farrer. Of course there is a doily, and I altered a playing card with the letter "L" for love. Then I added in my favorite Valentine elements from various kits. I pulled five alphabets that I thought would be perfect. Product list is below.

"What's the next step???

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...
  • Try and match every piece in the kit as close as possible to something from your supply stash.
  • Use the "kit contents" as inspiration, and recreate your own kit with the same types of supplies, but in a different color or style that corresponds better with your preferences/photographs/scrapbook style/tastes.
  • Make an even smaller "page kit" or "card kit"..."counterfeiting" just a few items from this month's kit as inspiration. 
  • Using the color scheme from the kits as inspiration, try to re-create a kit of your own using whatever supplies you have available.
What's to come?...
  • Today we are sharing pictures of the inspired Counterfeit Kits we put together from our stash of supplies.  The link for you to share pictures of your Counterfeit Kits with each other is here
  • Over the next week, we will add links to tutorials for counterfeiting many of the embellishments in this month's inspiration Kit's.
  • Over the next month, we will post mini challenges to USE your new kit, as well as organize a blog hop to share your creations! 
  • We hope you all find some inspiration in the kit club 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.  Feel free to leave a comment, questions, or any suggestions!!!  We look forward to hearing from you.
