June Kit Reveal



This month we have some temporary changes in our CKC family...

Julene & Clair
 Julene will be globetrotting in July, including a meet-up with our own Lisa!
Uber-busy Clair is taking a June-October hiatus - we will miss her artistic elegance :-(
Stephanie is delightfully enjoying "a season of baby bliss" & is due in late August!

Aren't they A-DO-RA-BLE?
  The GOOD NEWS is that our beloved Lesley has graciously agreed to stand in the gap
 for the duration! We are crossing our fingers that she will continue on as her innovative
 style is such a great addition to the Design Team.  Welcome back, Lesley!

Lisa, Jemma & Lesley
Now it's time again for yet another reveal of an inspiring kit to forge!
This month we are counterfeiting the Hip Kit Club's May kits.

Hip Kit Club - May Main Kit
Hip Kit Club - May Embellishment Kit
Hip Kit Club - May Project Life Kit
Hip Kit Club - May Color Kit
Hip Kit Club - May Paper Only Kit
There is also a matching Cardstock Kit.
All kits are detailed at the link above.

We are adding yet another dash of international flair this month 
to the Design Team of Master Forgers with Guest Designer Salla Porra!


Hi! My name is Salla and I'm a mixed media scrapbooker from Finland. I like to do many kinds of projects, but layouts and ATCs are what I create most right now. Before I found scrapbooking in 2011, I did a lot of textile projects, like quilting and fabric printing. What my two loves, quilting and collage, have in common is that they both combine bits and pieces of colors and patterns to fabulous new things. Thereof comes my blog title, too: Crazy Quilt of Paper!

I think designing my own kits is a lot of fun, since it inspires me to combine and use my existing stash in new ways. In addition to Counterfeit Kits, I’m really into making my own Project Life kits, so there will be some PL elements in my Guest Counterfeit Kit, too. I am really honored to be the Guest Designer at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge this month!

Salla, of course, starts off the hop of kit reveals from the Design Team.
Be sure to pop in & give them all a look before scavenging 
your stash for your look-alike to this month's inspiration kit.

Add yours to the Mr. Linky so that we can give it a peep & let you know how FAB it is!
If you are stuck for one of the key elements check back on the 4th 
for our helpful homemade versions in the monthly Forgeries on the Fourth post.
 

Plan to return for the three monthly challenges on the 6th, 12th & 16th to help you use up your kit. 
Our goal at CKC is to get our tired, neglected goodies out of storage & onto a project with style!
Hip Kit Club also has a Pinterest board with projects made from the May kit.

Plus we give YOU a special time to shine each month during our
