February 2017 Counterfeit Kit Reveal

It's February, the month of love - and I think you are going to fall in love with this month's inspiration kit! This month, we're working with the January [Document] Life Stories Kit, 'Little Things In Life' from Scrapdelight.

Scrapdelight are a Dutch store, who have embraced the eclectic nature of modern memory-keeping, while retaining some of the special elements of traditional scrapbooking and each month, their [Document] Life Stories Kits come in four selections: Scrap Kit, Planner Kit, Pocket Pages Kit and Embellishment Kit. 

But, one of the best things about the [Document] Life Stories Kits is that all of the elements which make up the kits - Papers, Cardstock, Stamps, Embellishments, Die-cuts; Labels, Journalling Cards - can be bought separately, meaning that customers can create their own customised kits! Just like we do here at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge!

Ready to check out the inspiration? 


Let's have a closer look at those deliciously soft, whimsical patterned papers!


There's an added pop of colour in the cardstock!


Aren't the colours amazing? The softer colours are still fantastic for working on winter memories, but I love the little extra hit of sunshine yellow.

Now, as if that's not quite enough loveliness, there's also two stamps sets which co-ordinate with the kit and there are four add-on options for Journalling and Pocket Pages!



I think we have more than enough counterfeiting options, right?

Let's meet our Guest Designer, the lovely Lisa-Jane Johnson, and see her kit!


"Hi there, I'm Lisa-Jane and I live in the south of England in an old, tall house which we are busy renovating. I'm married to my best friend and I'm a mum of two middle school children. My little girl and I love to scrapbook, eat chocolate, get messy in our art journals and get organised in our planners.  Basically we just love cutting and sticking!"

You can catch up with Lisa-Jane on Instagram or Facebook.


"I started out with one sheet of gorgeous lavender flowers but I couldn't find anything else to go with it and everything else I had was very purple! I switched it for a pale pink and used some very old stash indeed!  I was so happy! I realised also that the navy and pink was very on trend and very similar to the Posh collection from Simple Stories so I pulled that out to use as an add on kit. In the end I had to use that quite separately because it has a slightly off white background and the rest of the main kit was very white."


Just look at all of the beautiful patterned papers, alphas and embellishments included in this counterfeit. Swoonsome!

But ... there's even more inspiration coming with the Master Forger's Main Kit Reveal Blog Hop.

  1. Love, love, love the lavender in the inspiration kit, but I am equally entranced by Lisa Jane's version with the pink base and all her little embellishments.

  2. Welcome Lisa-Jane, and congratulations on being GD for the month. The colour combo of the inspiration kit does not move my mojo, but your spin on it is my cuppa tea.

  4. I just love the colors! I'm worried though - I was just talking about how I don't seem to have any purple or lavender in my stash the other day. I guess I'll have to dig deep into my scraps!

    1. Hey, I'm sure you can find a way to interpret the colours with papers you love from your own stash!
