Big It Up

Hi and welcome to my July Counterfeit Kit "Big It Up"

(Warning - photo heavy post but as a lot you lovely readers like the way I set out my reveal posts, I will try (if time is on my side) my best to oblige every month)

Our Guest Designer this month is Jane - you can see more over on her blog, A Little Scrap where you can give her a warm welcome and it's also great to have Susanne back too!!
The chosen one this month is Noel Mignon Balboa Kit and wow it's a big one.
Do you prefer big so you can create masses of layouts or do you keep it small enough just to be able to join in with the challenges?

So here is the kit...

and here it is set out (as promised) piece by piece with the 
real item on the left and my forgery on the right.

  1. Oh my you've done a fabulous job with the kit, not sure I'm going to be able to pull anything off as good as that!

  2. Thank you for your photos. I am new to counterfeit kits and am excited to bust my stash.

  3. What a big and bold kit. I think seeing it come together piece by piece makes me all the more envious. Enjoy it.

  4. Love to see the side by side comparison. Thanks for taking the time to show us. I have the same set of brads in my kit this month, too! Have fun with your inspired collection.

  5. Love seeing your kit piece by piece! Great kit!

  6. totally amazing! I love how you set your elements out...love the detail....and what an amazing kit! I'm coming to play!!!!

  7. Love, Love, Love seeing your kit like this, side by side so cool! I like seeing the kit come together and fun to see your choices oh I am so looking forward to those tutorials

  8. ***applause***
    Big fat juicy pile of goodness. The product for product approach makes for a great troll through your stash, and I can't wait for your tuts!

  9. Always makes me chuckle when people say warning - photo heavy. I say good, I'm here for the photos!
    Love your kit, very inspiring :)

  10. How fabulous ... I adore the side by side photos, and for me that how I like blog posts, the more photos the better

  11. Big It Up is the perfect name! What a great kit you've made. Your kit presentation is really great with the side by side pictures! Thanks for that. I especially love that you used some of my fave papers of recent times - all that scrumm Maggie Holmes! Yummy. Wonderful collection Lesley!

  12. Big and bold kit - I wonder how many pages you will manage this month? Have fun!

  13. Such a lovely kit, love how you pul it together! Can't wait to see how you counterfeits turn out.

  14. Good lord..where do you find the time? That post is amazing! I just wish I had faster broadband so it would load quicker.. A fab selection!

  15. I live a photo heavy lifestyle. Bring it on. Also, breaking down the inspiration kit is a big help to identify the different pieces to match.

  16. LOVE that kit! Thanks for layout it out like that, makes it much easier to copy :)

  17. I do love the colors in this kit.

  18. Absolutely amazing kit! I love the way you have everything "matched" up to the inspiration kit. This is perfect for beginners (or even seasoned scrapers who might be in a rut-like me!)

  19. Man, that kit is humungous. Have fun using it and your elements are super.


Thank you so much for leaving me some love!
