June 2017 Counterfeit Kit Reveal

LINK

Hooray - it's June and time for a new inspiration kit!  Susan here and I am delighted to be your host this month on the blog. Let's get right down to business...

I have long been a fan of the Felicity Jane kit club and so I've chosen their May 2017 kit, Willow, as our inspiration for June:

Willow


A little coral, a little aqua, a little yellow and the usual black & white prints...this kit has beautiful colors and soft patterns.  Here's a closer look at the papers:


For embellishments, Willow includes puffy shapes and a puffy alpha, die-cuts, and pocket cards.  There are washi strips and paper clips in a new metallic - rose-gold.  There's also a triangle stencil and a stamp set:


I really like the delicate and free-spirited vibe of this kit and I hope you're feeling inspired too! But before you rush off to assemble your own version, I'd like to introduce our Guest Designer for June, Lea Rhea.


Hi everyone, I’m super excited to be this month’s guest designer! A little bit about me - I’m a mom of two silly boys 5 and 2, they are the star of almost all my layouts, a have a dog that never finds her way to the page, and a husband of 11 years that shows up from time to time. I have been scrapping since I was 12 but took a way too long break in the middle there. Now I’m back at it and doing all the things. I love using awesome products, showcasing my photos and telling some stories. Using kits and making tons of layouts is one of my favorite things so I was happy to play along this month with product from my stash. My biggest tip to you is to spread out the entire kit on your desk and have it to pull from easily. The products will speak to you and you will make tons of layouts one after another. Remember scrapbooking is fun!!


You can find Lea on her blog Scrap and Plan or on her YouTube channel here. Welcome Lea - we are happy to have you with us!

And now, it's time for the blog hop to see the team's take on the inspiration:
