January 2018 - mini kit reveal

Are you feeling overwhelmed by the idea of a big kit this month? Perhaps you just want to pull together a few products to get those creative juices flowing. Maybe a mini-kit is the answer and we are here to show you what mini-kits we've created using the original inspiration kit by Cocoa Daisy.

Here's a reminder of that Cocoa Daisy kit, Fair Isle (Nov 2017).


I'm featuring the main kit here but on the Cocoa Daisy site, there are several other kit variations which are also interesting.

Mini Counterfeit 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, of course, you can use the mini-kit option whenever you like!

Now, let's see what Master Forger Susan and Lisa have brought together to share.

Susan was really inspired by the Fair Isle Pocket Kit and decided to pull together items that would help her make some Project Life pages from December 2016.  Here is the kit she made:

It doesn't look that big but she stretched it into two 12x12 Project Life spreads:



You can read about her process and see more details on her blog post here.

Lisa was inspired by the leafy, soft-coloured sheet of patterned paper in the main inspiration kit which reminded her of the BasicGrey Indian Summer collection. She picked out one sheet of that BG collection and brought together paper scraps to go with it - taking shades and ideas from the original kit - and added in a sprinkling of embellishments to make up her "Together" pocket page kit.


Unlike Susan's kit, it looks quite a lot bigger than it actually is! She then used this distinctly autumnal set of products to make a start on catching up with her October 2017 Project Life and will finish off the kit to work on September. (Apologies for the bad light photography!)



 

She has to admit to having PL envy after seeing Susan's gorgeous pages here but for now, this is another month done and that's good enough. It's still taking some time to find the flow in this process.

You can find more detailed shots and information about how she pulled her kit together over on her blog.
