July 2012 Inspiration Kit

The July 2012 Inspiration Kit is the June kit put together by a brand new kit club called Citrus Twist.  Their June 2012 kit is called "Summer Boardwalk" and is full of some of the latest and greatest in the scrapbook industry.  You can view the contents at their web site found at  their web site here .  The "Summer Boardwalk" kit will go perfectly with photos from a sunny summer day, to a quaint summer vacation.  We hope you will enjoy creating your Counterfeit Kit based on this inspiration.


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.

  1. Ysy! So pleased that you picked this kit - after someone mentioned it in the comments on the 'clue' post, I went to have a nosey at Citrus Twist and fell in love with it!

  5. I'm confused... is the inspiration kit the March kit (as the message says) or the current kit? And if it's truly the March kit, how come I can't find it on their website?
