My March Counterfeit Kit
Main Kit: Catalina Island
For my kit, I focused on the blue hues as I didn't have any blue/yellow combination papers, nor any of the Authentique or MME papers found in the inspiration kit. This was quite a challenge for me, as I tend to use aqua blues more instead of this true blue/denim blue.
Even though the original inspiration kit was on the small side, I pulled a lot of embellishments for this kit according to colors the co-ordinated. I also kept them to a feminine feel. I included two chipboard mini albums that I'd like to make...not sure what they'll end up being, but I've had them for years and I'd like to use them.
Journaling Add On Kit
Since I like to think I am passionate about journaling, I pulled a lot of journaling spots too. Many of them are pre-stamped spots.
Embellishment Add-On Kit
Yes, there are more embellishments! Chipboard, brads, punched circles, tape, beads, buttons, rubons, and also pictured are mists, ink, and paint dabbers.
