Some news and a Counterfeit Kit Challenge Master Forger Design Team Call – 2020

The team at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge is fun, active and incredibly talented and I’m so, so grateful to have them as my crafting buddies. I love having them in my life and value each of them for their fabulous crafting, their friendship and their contributions to our community - both “front of shop” as well as behind the scenes. 

Master Forger Susan has decided to step away from the creative activities of the CKC team, which means we will all miss her immense talent and kind words of support. Her projects have me ooo’ing and ahh’ing each and every month and she makes me want to be a better scrapper. But I’m thrilled that she will be staying with us in a support function helping us over on Instagram as well as creating the incredibly awesome mood boards each month for our sneak peeks. 

Ex-Master Forger Clair has delighted us all for many months with her {Killing Kitsseries where she has inspired us all to use up those pesky little scraps and embellishments we find at the bottom of our kit box. Her videos and blog posts have offered simple but effective ideas which were easy to adapt to our own supplies. November will be her last month as she has decided to focus her energies in new directions! I wish her all the very best and hope we will see her over here at CKC from time to time. We miss her already. 

So a warm and heartfelt thank you to both of you for all that you’ve done for us and I hope you will still hang out here at CKC with us!

Which brings me to a happier part of this post: 

First up, I’d like to welcome two new members to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge team – drum roll…. Please join me in welcoming the fantabulous Shannon Allor and Tara O’Rourke who will officially start their CKC team work in January, but no doubt we will be seeing a lot of them until them as they begin to flex their counterfeiting muscles! We are beyond thrilled that they agreed to join us and I know that they will be a perfect fit for the group with their kit skills, not to mention their wonderful craftiness! Shannon will also be offering us ideas at the end of the month for using up our kits as she continues the {Killing Kitsseries as of January

Please join me in welcoming them both to our crafty family! 

And that’s not all… we have space for ONE new Design Team member so…..
