Welcoming Our New Design Team!

Now it's time to say goodbye to some of our Master Forgers and say HI to some new Design Team Members.

We are sad to say goodbye to some friends.  We have loved having AndreaJenniferLibeetiLisa J., and Rebecca!  Thank you for all of your hard work and wonderful creativity!  We will be keeping our collective eyes on you!

We are thrilled to welcome back 

And now please say...

to our new Design Team...the Master Forgers of the Counterfeit Kit Challenge!


Hey There! My name is Ashley Spiller. I am so super excited to be a Master Forger here at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge. I am married to my high school sweetheart, I work full time and love to cook giant dinners. I am also a very silly or so I have been told! When I am not working or cooking you can find me scrapping. I call myself a "chaotic scrapper" because I can make a mess....a BIG mess.  To see my mess and some of the layouts that result from said mess check out my blog- Paper for People.

I choose Mist (and a wood veneer) as my scrappy item(s) that best represent me. About 6 months ago I refused to try mists because it always looked "weird" on my pages. But now (almost) no page is complete until I have inked, splattered, spotted or misted it!! As for the wood veneer well....I collect them!!

Hi my name is Dawn and I live in Clever, Missouri a darling little town in SW Missouri.  And I LOVE my patterned paper.  The particular collection I'm holding is Allison Kreft for Webster's Paper.  I LOVE that designers are now teaming up with these fabulous companies to make splendid lines.  Some of my favorites are Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper, Amy Tan for American Crafts and anything Heidi Swapp.  There is something about the colors and patterns that just make me want to grab a photo and create something pretty =).  I am so excited to be on the Counterfeit Kit Club DT.  I am looking so forward to working with this amazing group of lovely ladies.  Please visit me at my blog for more fun and inspiration ~~ Blessings ~~  

Hey everyone! My name is Stephanie and I live in beautiful Vancouver, Canada. I have been scrapbooking for 10+ years and I love how this hobby allows me to document my family's memories in such a unique, creative way. I am so excited and honoured to be part of the Counterfeit team, and I hope my monthly contributions inspire you to put your stash to good use. My favorite scrappy product are mists and spray inks. I've accumulated quite the collection and I love how versatile they are. I used to be sooo afraid to use them because I was terrified of making a mistake, but then I realized that mistakes are part of the creative process."When in doubt, ink it" is now my scrapping motto and I think that captures my approach to life as well. We should never be afraid to take chances and get our hands dirty. You can read more about my messy creative endeavours over on my blog, Skyline Paperie.

Delighted to meet you - Lesley(G) here. 
My husband (Nick) of 18 years and my 14 year old daughter, Imogen are very understanding when it comes to my scrapbooking and they always take a great interest in my creations.
Luckily for me, Imogen loves being creative too and I enjoy nothing more than spending a day chatting and scrapping with her at the dining table.
If you care to hop over to you can find out more about me.
My favourite "scrappy" item (at the moment!) has to be Washi Tape, it is so versatile and colourful.
and also one thing that I just can't resist buying
 so I don't think I will ever use up my massive collection.
Go on, show me yours...

Hi, I’m Leslie from just outside of Flint, Michigan, USA. My childhood sweetheart & I share our little acre with our grand-dog Lila & our cantankerous cat, Captain Hook. Retirement is looming and with 3 grandbabies to spoil & enjoy it should be sweet :~)
With all of the marvelous products available to us today I am convinced that none is more essential than patterned paper.  It can be torn, cut, pinned, pasted, stapled, stamped, painted, inked, folded, spindled & mutilated – well, you get the idea! It comes in an infinite variety of patterns, colors, textures & themes. My motto? “Let the Patterned Paper Do the Work!” I can’t seem to get enough of the stuff, and joining in here at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge has helped me to rescue some of my orphan papers from the back of the bin & to fall in love with them all over again.  Head on over to MY BLOG to see what I have been creating!

Hello fellow forgers, I’m Julene Matthews from Sydney Australia. I’m so excited to be part of Counterfeit Kits Design Team. My very busy blog is .I also run ,a challenge site based on architecture.
Choosing one item is difficult. I’m never without double sided tape, Fiskars scissors and a ruler. However I guess the item that best describes me would be alphas. My world is books and letters. I’m a teacher-librarian, and it flows over into my scrapping. I’m often choosing a title or labels as I scrap.
Being a Virgo I’m precise, organised and practical.

So much talent in one blog!  It is going to be a great 2nd term!
