May's Counterfeit Kit: Everything Old is New Again!

The "new" year never feels really new to me until we hit spring.  The snow is gone...sunlight is streaming through my windows and new life is popping up all around me.  I used to find summers relaxing, but I am now in the season of life where they are just as busy as the rest of the year.  LOL  Bring it on!

I am so excited about our concept for our kit for May!  I went FAR back to when this blog first started and decided to take inspiration from our very first kit.

Here is a link to our first first Counterfeit Kit.  It is a little like watching my baby grow up!
**That kit is no longer on her site, but with the above link and some saved photos, I think we can manage to get inspired anyway!

Anyone remember these?  If you were not with us then, this will be a fun challenge to try and update this kit to your style.  If you WERE with us way back then, let's see if you can reinterpret it!

Of course, we are all about keeping you on your toes, so we are ALSO adding in an ADD ON KIT from one of her current kits:  Jenni Bowlin April 2015 MagPie Box

I would love for you to give a warm welcome and hello to our Guest Designer for the month, Susan.  We are excited to have her join us and to see her wonderful creations on HER FLICKER PAGE.

Hello everyone! My name is Susan and I live in Connecticut with my husband John and our two daughters: Alison (age 23) and Sarah (age 21).  I started scrapbooking in 1996 (yes ~ that long ago!) after a family trip to Disney World. My husband's cousin was a Creative Memories consultant and when I saw her supplies I knew I'd found the perfect way to document the memories and photos of that trip.

I’ve been participating in the Counterfeit Kit Challenge since January of this year, thanks to a suggestion from Lynnette. I “know” her, Leslie and Lisa from our participation in many LOADs (Layout-A-Day challenges) over the years and have always been inspired by their layouts.

Playing along with CKC has been so much fun - it’s really rejuvenated my love of scrapbooking. I am thrilled to be the Guest Designer this month and am looking forward to seeing what everyone creates from their kits.

It is time for my favorite part, the blog hop!  This is how we show you how each of us interpreted the inspiration kit to get you full of ideas before you make your own kit.

We would LOVE to have you participate!  Check out the How to play along with us tab at the top of the page to see how you can play along after you make your kit!  We have a month full of special challenges and ideas so we can get some creating done and get some supplies used up.


  1. Love the vintage vibe this month :)

  2. Interesting Vintage look about the kits

  3. Outstanding Blog hop too ladies, it was fun to walk down memory lane with you about this first kit :) It was fun to go back to that first month and see what Bethany and her friend put together too. I love mixing old with the new so this will be total fun putting together this kit :)

  4. Fun again!! Looking forward to playing this month again. I posted my counterfeit and will link it when the link goes up. Thanks design team for the inspiration! I don't know how I would have pulled off this month's counterfeit without it. Great hop!

  5. Welcome Susan. Love your style and looking forward to seeing your creations.
