CKCB July Kit Reveal

Today is very exciting for me - want to know why?
 This month, instead of playing along with the team at CKCB,
 I am forging my Counterfeit Kit as an actual  team member (yikes!)

Our Guest Designer this month is Laura  - if you started at the beginning you will have seen how great her kit for July is.

So how was Julene today? You did visit her blog didn't you? She was before me!

Onto the kit...
 brought to you by Scrapbook and Cards today. 

Please see HERE for kit contents

The colours are so warm and inviting don't you think?

Here's how I shopped my stash...

Leaving out the plain cardstock as I generally tend to use white, here is my choice of patterned cardstock which are all pages out of my massive stack of paper pads.

Now for my embellishments:
I used my Cricut to cut the fancy words and I love the negative too.
My mini paper bag was stenciled using a paint dauber and my circle tidbits were created using Craft Artist.
The star pins were adapted from normal pins with the head cut off - this was then attached to my star using glossy accents.

  • Authentique Word Stickers
  • Basic Grey Variety of Tidbits
  • Homemade circle tidbits
  • Variety of Labels
  • Red and Green Buttons
  • Title Cards
  • Homemade Fancy Words using Cricut
  • American Crafts Chevron Ribbon
  • Yellow Twine
  • Homemade Camera Kraft Die Cuts (Google images printed onto Kraft Card)
  • Ticket Kraft Die Cuts
  • Heart Chipboard Pieces
  • Homemade Star Pins
  • Enamel Dots (found in Home Bargains)
  • Mini Clothes Pins
  • Simple Stories Urban Traveler Expressions
  • Charcoal Thickers
  • Homemade Chevron Print Mini Kraft Bag

And here it is - my "Rainy Day" kit, aptly named for our not so sunny British weather, all ready to start another month of crafting.

I hope you will join in with us (get me using the word "us") at CKCB this month.
If you do, please share using the July Mr.Linky tool which can be found in the top right corner of the Counterfeit Kit Blog

Lisa's up next, so thanks for stopping by, until the next time...
