Mix it up, make it your own-CKCB June Kit

Happy June! I am very excited to showcase the kit for Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog this month! We are truly doing something different. You should have reached me from the awesome Guest Designer this month: Allison.  I eluded to it in a previous post here but if you did not catch that no worries. We are mixing it up and making our OWN kits with the following items in them. No copying another kit (unless you want to); this time the challenge is to make your OWN kit. Here is what we were to include: 
10 sheets patterned paper
8 sheets card stock
2 alphabets
2 stamp sets
4 journaling spots
3 TYPES of "misc" embellishments
1 roll washi tape
1 OLD item/embellishment
1 Messy item
1 surprise item of your choice!
So without further ado let's dissect my kit this month, what do you say? I am calling it "Sweet and Sassy"  I have a good deal of spring/Easter pictures to finish up before I move on so that is where my inspiration came from. Below is the ENTIRE kit with all my add ons.
Here is the main meat and taters part of the kit. This includes all of the listed above and one more alphabet set (I have white thickers, Kraft corrugated letters and tiny type Kraft letters). My OLD item is the paper crimper (how long has yours been collecting dust?!?!!). My 3 types of misc embellishments are the twine, buttons, and bling with the three butterflies thrown in for the surprise item or I guess they could be the OLD item too. I do have two messy items paint (hint! hint!) and white embossing powder since I am all about stamping on my creations these days. I did not include my journaling spots in this one but picked out three label pads (Martha Stewart) to use. You will see why in a few seconds. So there you have the MAIN kit part of "Sweet and Sassy".

Now here we are to the first add on, the stamping one. I pulled lots of Unity stamps with a weather/spring/whimsical theme. Then we have a border set, an outline alphabet set, and a little girl set. I think I should be covered, but reserve the right to add more from my stash if needed :).

Here we have the second add on: 6X6 paper pads. I have been buying and gifted these a great deal lately and really want to use them instead of them collecting dust on my Expedit. So I pulled out a few with similar color themes, plus they rock when I am doing Project Life.

Last but not least, the final or third add one, my JOURNALING add on. Yep that is MORE stamps, pattern paper and labels. I also included some MME and Lily Bee Design spots to round it all out. I have three pattern papers here all grid/ledger/lined for easy journal spots/boxes etc bases.  Four more stamp sets, my "journal spots" from the main kit (Lily Bee Index cards), several MME pre made spots/labels and there you have it. Yes I know it is massive but I have noticed I am slacking in my journaling and want to step it up.

So are you up for this awesome challenge inspired by Shimelle Laine at 2peasinabucket.com? Can you do it? I am always interested in the process of others kitting (is that a word?) so leave me a comment with the steps you use to pull your kit together! Can't wait to see what you make! Make sure to continue the DT hop with GLINDA!

  2. Pretty kit, Crystal! I love your paper pads-they are my new favorites, too! The patterns are the perfect scale for my liking. :-). I struggle with journaling, so I am so looking forward to all of the ways that you will use your journaling add-on. A

  17. Beautiful kit and add-ons! I love that you've put some 6X6 pads, I did it on last months kit for the same reasons.
