This Month's Inspiration Kit... 
The June 2011 Kit is put together by another new kit club called Burlap and can visit their website at

Burlap and Buttercup's June 2011 Main Kit is so light and airy, you can view the inspiration kit and the list of contents at

"Summer" Add-On Kit...

Kim, one of the Master Forgers, has created a "Summer" themed Add-on Kit to coordinate with Burlap and Buttercup's June 2011 Kit.   If you would like to create a Summer Add-On Kit, please feel free to Counterfeit Kim's...or simply pull a few 'summer' embellishments from your stash of supplies to coordinate with your June 2011 Counterfeit Kit.  For more information about Kim's Add-On Kit, please visit her blog  (If you have lots of summer photos to scrapbook, you might want to make a Summer Add-On...we will be working with it later in the month, and would love for you to join along!)

 What's the next step???

The CHALLENGE is to use this kit for inspiration. How, you ask? Well, there are many ways to go about this. Here are a few ideas...
  • Try and match every piece in the kit as close as possible to something from your supply stash.
  • Use the "kit contents" as inspiration, and recreate your own kit with the same types of supplies, but in a different color or style that corresponds better with your preferences/photographs/scrapbook style/tastes.
  • Make an even smaller "page kit" or "card kit"..."counterfeiting" just a few items from this month's kit as inspiration. 
  • Using the color scheme from the kits as inspiration, try to re-create a kit of your own using whatever supplies you have available.
What's to come?...
  • Tomorrow we will post pictures of the inspired Counterfeit Kits we put together from our stash of supplies.  The link for you to share pictures of your Counterfeit Kits with each other is here
  • Over the next week, we will add links to tutorials for counterfeiting many of the embellishments in this month's inspiration Kit's.
  • Over the next month, we will post mini challenges to USE your new kit, as well as organize a blog hop to share your creations! 
  • We hope you all find some inspiration in the kit club we choose this month!!!  If you aren't sure where to begin, check out the "Hints and Tips" page of our blog for some help.  Feel free to leave a comment, questions, or any suggestions!!!  We look forward to hearing from you.
