Counterfeit Kit July - Guest Designer

I was incredibly honoured to receive an email asking me to be this month guest designer on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge. Since discovering the CKCB my scrapbooking has increased and become so much easier, so its lovely to be included and give a little back.

The July kit has been revealed as the Confidence Kit by Scrapbooking From The Inside Out and is pictured below.
I was a little hesitant when I first saw it as it reminded me of Christmas colours but also the geometricness (if there is such a word!) and the darkness of some of the papers were not things I would naturally pick.
This is my version I have used a slightly brighter green than the kit and have tried to keep the geometric patterns but have used slightly lighter patterns and colours.
 I have used my Silhouette to cut some polaroid frames and project life style journaling card.
Feel I have picked similar colours and the same pattern selection. 
Papers are Jillibean Soup, Do Crafts, MME and a few without names.
 Selection of Thickers and other letters
Some wooden hearts, rub ons and washi tape, I have another reel of green washi somewhere which I will be adding once I have cleared my craft table!

For some Fantastic inspiration hop along to see the rest of the teams take on the kit, the top one is me!

Guest Designer:  Heidi


Lisa H.

  6. Greetings & welcome! I couldn't agree more with your experience with CKC - definitely does make scrapping easier & more productive! I love what you did with your kit - I spied some of the same papers that I considered in trying to keep with the spirit of the inspiration. Your lovely vibrant color scheme makes this an exciting summer kit! Can't wait to see your pages this month :~)
