Insane. It's just insane!

I'm talking about March's Counterfeit Kit! 
There are 5, yes you heard that right.  
FIVE KITS.

This month's inspiration is from Studio Calico. There is a main kit and 4 add-on kits.

I've made up 4 kits and then added some additional cardstock and embellishment items. The inspiration kits are really not my style. So, rather than woodsy I've tried to keep my kits just outdoorsy. So instead of tree bark and squirrels, I'll be more birds and butterflies. And my papers may be a little brighter overall.

Kit #1 - this is a little larger than the others so we'll say this is 
the Main Kit.


Bella Blvd - Family Tree, Growing Up; Pink Paislee - 365 Degrees Collection, Daydream; Prima - Whisper Collection, Sigh; My Mind's Eye - LL, Coastal Comfort, Cuddle Dots; Pink Paislee - Fetching, Rugged; Basic Grey - Sugared, Sweetheart; Prima - My Mommy and Me; My Mind's Eye - LL, Coastal Comfort, Chesterfield Print; My Mind's Eye - Life Stories, Accessory Sheet; My Mind's Eye - LMM, Celebrate, Party Dots; My Mind's Eye - LMM, Hello Beautiful, Butterflies; Hambly- Screen Prints, Out on a Limb; the 2 smaller scalloped pieces are Lily Bee - French Couture; also 2 Fancy Pants - Glitter Cuts, Large Purple Swirl & Label Flourish; 2 packs of Making Memories - Paperie brad combos in Mocha & Greenhouse; plus 2 miscellaneous journaling tags.


The first of my 'add-on' kits - I am calling it 'Tweet Spring'.

 
 My Mind's Eye - Abbey Road: Stomp 'Rock On' Tadpole; 'Round & Round' Scenery; Whirlybird 'Best Friends' Tweet Tweet; Lucky Me 'Hello World' Lucky Lime; and the die cut is Whirlybird 'Sunshine Girl' Birds of a Feather. The other two patterned papers are Prima - Signs of Spring. The floral die cut is KI Memories - Pop Culture, flower child pinata. There is one journaling spot from MME Abbey Road and the other three are Colorbok - Friendly Forest. Basic Grey - Green at Heart  Canvas Tags and another pack of Making Memories Paperie brads in Poolside round out this kit.



The second of my 'add-on' kits - I am calling it 'Sunshine Flowers'.

The Girls' Paperie: Cabbage Rose (Rev. Yellow Check); Green Brocade (Rev. Small Pink Blossoms); Shabby Flower; Vintage Travel; Vintage Patchwork; and Bella Blvd - Plastino ,Bermudas. Die cut papers: The Girls' Paperie, Diecut Wallpaper and My Mind's Eye - Jacy & Jill 'Cute' Beautiful Blossoms. Making Memories - {note}worthy Journal spots, Delaney; the small die cut pieces are also from The Girls' Paperie. There are two Prima Vines - Summer Carnation Lemon & Thistle and another pack of Making Memories Paperie brads in Rouge round out this kit.


The third 'add-on' kit - I am calling it 'Beachy Keen'. 


 The papers are all Scenic Route from the Grafton line: Maxwell Avenue; Wharf Street; James Street; Tyson Street; Kraft Spinner; and Kraft Surf Leaf. KI Memories - Bloom Frosty Lace Cardstock, twirl hazard. Tattered Angels - Bingo Boards and Calling Cards, Beach. Two  journaling spots from Colorbok - Friendly Forest and two miscellaneous pieces of chipboard borders.



I also pulled a selection of Bazzill cardstock, a bunch of journaling spots & tickets, Fancy Pants felt shapes, and Tattered Angels chipboard pieces.


I did not pull a lot of embellishments for these kits. It took hours just to go through all my papers (hey, I'm working on using it up!) to pull these and photograph and blog. I will be adding alphas, flowers, buttons, bling & ribbons as I need them. As always, this kit club retains the right to make substitutions!  :)


Please check out my previous March posts to see the final layout I made with my February kit, the left-overs of that kit and some other layouts I did for my friend Donna's new sketch blog. Thanks for stopping by!
