Counterfeit Kit Challenge - Guest Designer Reveal and Blog Hop

Happy July 1st everyone, it is a long weekend here in Canada as we are celebrating our country's birthday today!

I am thrilled to share with you today that I have been asked to be a Guest Designer for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge for the month of July. Today I am participating in a blog hop with the design team. Here is a little bit of information about this fun challenge.

The challenge is to use an inspiration kit to recreate the feel/vibe of the kit using your own supplies! Create a ‘counterfeit kit’ to use when creating layouts during the month. Lori chose the  June Flavors of the Month kit from The ScrapRoom as the inspiration kit. Here is a look at the inspiration kit....

And now to share with you the kit that I created....

I chose to go with four different themes as in the inspiration kit. First my masculine kit that consists of papers from Photoplay, Authentique, Scrapbook Customs, TPC Studio and Basic Grey. I added a couple of pieces of Kraft paper cardstock and tags and lots of masculine embellishments from Basic Grey.

Next I created a Summer Fun kit to use to scrap lots of fun summer photos around the pool and a recent Margarita party that we hosted for my husband's birthday. The papers and project life style cards are from Creative Memories along with some fun embellishments. I also included a few pieces of textured white cardstock and a Recollections 6x6 pad and matching embellishments.

For the Birthday Kit, I chose more masculine papers as I have lots of male birthdays to do catch up on. The papers and stickers are from Echo Park. 

For my Travel Theme kit, I chose the Happy Camper line from My Mind's Eye as well as an Echo Park map paper. Lots of embellishments from MME as well complete the kit.

I can't wait to get busy creating with this kit. I am starting three weeks vacation, so I hope to get some scrapping time while I am on vacation.

Here is the complete list of the blog hop. Be sure to stop by each of the design team members blogs to see their kits:
