Hello fellow forgers – Susanne here. Welcome to July at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge; it is time for our inspiration kit reveal.
I’m not sure what the weather is like where you are, but around here – in July - we always find ourselves saying – “It’s ho.o.o.o.ot Don!”
Don? Who is Don, you ask. Don is a famous car salesman in these parts, and he is known for his sizzling hot deals. Speaking of hot deals, how you would like a nifty scrapbooking kit to record your summer memories at absolutely no additional cost. Well, we’ve got a deal for you. Just counterfeit it, why don’t you? (Don thinks you should - Don wants to save you money!)
What? You need an inspiration kit? Fair enough, How about this one. It’s a Heat Wave!
It comes to us courtesy of Scrapbook and Cards Today. It is their Crop & Create Delivered Kit: Heat Wave from Summer 2015. You can find the full details of the kit there along with a reveal video and some sneak project peeks too.
But hey, Scrapbook and Cards Today doesn’t stop there. Here’s another page with sketches, links to layout videos and cut files. No wonder those kits always sell out. Don wishes these folks were selling cars for him instead of kits! There’s some pretty hot stuff!
While you will notice similarities to last month’s kit – Don would point out that the colors are hotter, much hotter – crimson replaces pink, bright yellow replaces butter and “automotive” gray trumps kraft. If you have bits and bobs left from June, throw them in, they could be just the thing to cool down a sizzling hot kit!
How about a little test drive of this kit to look at a few models and check out the options. First up is our Guest Designer – Gretchen Henninger.
Gretchen lives in New York City with her husband and three cats.
She is an avid scrapbooker, knitter, hiker, and photographer.
She takes immense joy from getting out and exploring the world,
taking pictures of what she sees, and scrapping it.
The Reveal Hop:
If you need a little help customizing your own options, we'll be back shortly with Forgeries on the Fourth and tips on how to counterfeit some forgeries. Then on the 6th, 12th, and 18th we will post three challenges to really rev up your creative engines. These challenges will all have a theme – ways to keep cool when it’s hot!
Please remember to share your kits and creations by posting to Mr. Linky so that we can all enjoy what you have done. And consider sharing a project using this month's kit by joining the Members' Blog Hop on the 24th!
Hey Don! Here at CKC - this July is gonna be ho.o.o.o.ot!
