Challenge #1 - Be Inspired By Pinterest

 Use the Power of Pinterest.

Yes, it is that simple, use something you have found on Pinterest to inspire your project.  See what strikes your fancy - and go with it.  In your blog post, be sure to link us up to your inspiration as well as show your project!  Don't have any Pinterest boards of your own - no problem - you can always start at ours.  Just click here or on the link in our sidebar.

Here's what our Guest Designer, Binty and other Master Forgers have plucked from Pinterest and put to paper:

Be sure & visit Binty's blog for a great tip 
on some special detailing on her page!

Susanne turned to her Pinterest Board of sketches and came up with oldie but a goodie from 2012.

Leslie's inspiration & her take. Read more HERE.

Now, how can YOU participate?  Go to the sidebar and use Mr. LINKY to link us to YOUR kit or project using your kit so we can leave you some love!  We will make a brand new Mr. Linky for each month, so get your blog posts linked ASAP!

To make Mr. Linky a little easier for us to use, please type your name and then a description of what you are linking (ie: kit, mini challenge, ect).

We also have a Flicker group, if you don't have a blog, but would like to share your creativity with us!  CKC Blog Flicker Group

If you take a peek at our side bar <<<<<<<<  you will see links to our Facebook and Pinterest, as well.  We hope to see you hanging out at ALL of those places.
We also have a new twist on our Follower Blog Hop for this year!  I hope you like it!
End of the Month Blog Hop:
On the 24th of each month we offer a blog hop opportunity to all of our followers!  A chance for you to show off a special project made with your counterfeit kit for that month.

Here is how it will work:
Your Blog Hop Project may be from any of the 3 challenges we offer throughout the month.
Your project must be something new that you have not shown before and only post for the hop.

To be a part of our blog hop:
1.  E-mail us your name/blog address/promise to participate at  BY THE 18th!  (No late requests will be able to join this time due to the work it takes for us to get it put together.)

2.  You will receive  an e-mail from us by the 20th with a list of the hop participants.

3.  You will need to schedule your own blog post showing your project based on this challenge and links to the person after you in the hop.

4.  All Blog Hop posts will need to be scheduled to go live on the 24th at 12:00 A.M. Mountain Standard Time (Arizona)


  1. Three fabulous layouts! I think I could pin all three!

  2. Great pages! Are we able to create multiple projects for any of the challenges? For example, could I post a Pinterest lift this week and then do another Challenge #1 project for the hop? TIA!

    1. Janine! Absolutely! There is no limit to how often you can make layouts with any of our prompts/challenges and we love it if you share your make and also join in on the hop with another take! Really, we love that :-)

      Make sure you drop the Counterfeit email address a line to let us know that you'd like to join in on the hop so that we know for sure to add you to the list.

  3. I got my pin thingy chosen (joyce)

  4. Great idea! Have chosen mine and am starting it today..once I've sorted a kit out! I love the idea of actually USING the ideas we pin! Lol
