April 2017 Counterfeit Kit Reveal

Happy April!

Please give a warm welcome to our April Guest Designer!

Hi, my name is Beth Moloney. I'm 38 and I live in a lovely little village in the English
countryside on the outskirts of Nottingham, UK. I have four children...two girls who
are 5 & 6 and two boys who are almost 17 and 20.
I started scrapbooking just over 6 years ago when my oldest daughter was around 6 months old.
I really wanted a way to preserve all of the memories and photos that I was taking - many
more than I had when my boys were born, pre-digital cameras! I started with a mini album of Christmas photos and was hooked!!
I now do traditional scrapbooking in 12x12 and 8.5x11 size, pocket scrapbooking
in 9x12, digitally using the Project Life app, and also mini projects such as December Daily
in 6x8! My style is relatively clean and simple... I love white space and get through tonnes
of white card stock, but I also like to use mixed media on my backgrounds.
I'm really looking forward to playing along with Counterfeit Kits this month! I love putting stash kits together to get a different look and find it much more inspiring than working within a collection.

Now let's take a look at April's inspiration kit!

I chose this month's inspiration kit,  
because of it's bright, fun vibe & the touch of whimsy in the elements.

The Cocoa Daisy February reveal also includes bright & happy March planner kits, like this.

So I hope you are inspired this month to pull together a kit of your own, 
using both old and new stash, to make projects that you love.
Don't forget to visit our Forgery on the Fourth feature April 4th
for ideas to counterfeit elements from the inspiration kits. 

For kit making inspiration, take a quick trip around our Master Forgers' main kit blog hop!

Remember that we now have a mini-kit option for our Master Forgers.
Stay tuned for that reveal on April 6th - you may find a smaller kit suits you better!

 And make sure to share YOUR kit & projects with us on the Link-up Page, 
or on Instagram @counterfeitkitchallenge or #counterfeitkitchallenge.

I hope you enjoy the kit choice this month & challenges on the 12th & 18th!
Can't wait to see what you create - Leslie
