February 2017 Mini Kit Reveal

Love this month's inspiration kit, but not entirely sure if you can play along this month? 

Maybe you're not sure if you have the time and energy to play along? 
Maybe you feel like you haven't got quite enough stash to make a full kit? 
Or maybe you're still working with the remnants of last month's inspiration kit and only need a small selection to work with? 

Whatever the reasons, we've been busy working on a new feature which we hope will help out when time, energy or stash are a little bit lacking! In addition to the main kit reveal on the 1st of the month, we'll also be creating our own smaller 'Mini Kit' versions of the inspiration kit, along with some ideas for using them up quickly!

Kits can either be simply smaller versions of the main kit, or they can be specifically aimed at use as card kits, mini album kits, pocket style albums or planners. It's entirely up to you. And you can use the mini-kit option whenever you like -
  • You're still loving (and creating with) an older kit, but want to play along each month.
  • You don't have enough stash that suits the new inspiration kit. 
  • You're busy, but still want to feel creative. 
  • You love the 'Main Kit' but could have taken it in a different direction. Use the mini-kit as way to explore those other options. 
  • You need *more* kit. Use the mini-kit as an 'add on'. 
  • In fact, use the mini-kit inspiration in any way that you want! 

Shall we show you what we've been using it for?

Stephanie put together a very simple page kit, inspired by the soft lilac color in the original kit:


Here's my mini kit.

3 sheets of patterned paper, 3 sheets of cardstock, some small embossed scraps plus a few embellishments.

From this group I made 10 cards.

Susan put together this mini kit:

and used it to make this mini album:


As always, if you're inspired to create a kit, make sure to include them in our Monthly Link Up. We want to see it! Or share on Instagram using @counterfeitkitchallenge or #counterfeitkitchallenge

We'll be back with the first challenge of the month on the 12th February. Don't miss it!
