Sherri's "Mossy Knoll" Counterfeit Kit
"I was inspired more by the colors of this kit than the patterns. I love the teal, and it goes well with my other kits. I included some fun ribbons, text and border prints, banner stickers, and some handmade metal flowers. My letter stickers have two coordinating shades-you can see them peeking up in the right-hand corner." for more information, see Sherri's blog http://sherrithompson.blogspot.com/.
Meridy's "Mossy Knoll" Counterfeit Kit
Bethany's "Mossy Knoll" Counterfeit Kit
My favorite part of this kit was the vintage circus pieces. I had a blast finding those online and think this will be a really interesting style to try. Very different from what I usually do. Check out my Blog for a complete list of my kit contents and more pictures.
Mini Banner Tutorials:
Bethany used number stamps to replicate the banner's "numbered" pendants...
Meridy created the pendant pieces using those $1 Martha Stewart pieces...you know one of those Big Lots "I-have-to-have-it-because-it's-such-a-great-deal" impulse buys!!! Well, NOW I'm glad I bought them, I finally opened the package to use them for this mini banner.
I plan on adding mini alphabet letter stamps to each pendant when it comes time to create my layout.
Even More Printables:
They are so much fun! We had to share the great ones we found for the "Mossy Knoll" kit...

Metal Flowers Tutorial:
apparently no kit is complete without a few beautiful flowers! So here are some tutorials to help you counterfeit these Making Memories Metal Flowers...
I found some of those MM Metal Sheet in my stash, and some metal mesh that I thought might be interesting. I also grabbed a few "bling" brads and 2 flower punches.
And created these little beauties!
NOTE: If you don't have the metal sheets, Sherri made these for her counterfeit Kit using an aluminum Coke can! It worked beautifully for her! See herri's tutorial here http://sherrithompson.blogspot.com/.
Another variation: Color the metal flowers with Copic markers or Alcohol Inks for a little added color.
