August 2022 - Counterfeit Kit Reveal & Blog Hop

Hello it's Julene here, and August is my birthday month, so I get to choose. (LOL)

Only kidding, I volunteered to do this month.

The kit we are counterfeiting for August is another Citrus Twist Kit.

Citrus Twist TRAVELOGUE Life-Crafted Kit - April 2022 – Citrus Twist Kits

I chose this kit because of the green colour mainly, but there's also lots of mustard yellows.

These papers make a statement! (Nobody puts these babies in the corner!)

The embellishments provide for a variety of holiday/car trip/beach/walking experiences/outdoors. 

The whole kit has a bright, fresh feel.

Here's some more pictures.

That's pretty comprehensive I think.

We are delighted to have Caryn Adams Kidwell as our guest designer this month.

Hello all!!! I am super excited to be the August Guest Designer for Counterfeit Kit Challenge Group. My name is Caryn pronounced (Care-ren); but no one says or spells it correctly LOL. I was born and raised in Annapolis, Maryland (United States). Grew up on the water near the U.S. Naval Academy. I have been married to my best friend and love of my life for 23 years and we got married on my Birthday; November 20th (this way my husband only has to remember 1 date LOL). I am “Madukes” to KK boy & KK girl. I am an outgoing introvert. 

I just LOVE Crafting!!! Whether I am altering an item, creating a layout, journaling in my planner, or making an mini album or participating in Snail Mail Swaps. I have been dabbling in crafting since I was a kid. I was always excited to be in the Yearbook Club, Photography Club & Art Clubs. I primarily do 12x12 layouts. I'm that girl who does not  Scrapbook chronologically AND I never measure. My Craft Studio is my own personal crafty space; I must see everything I have & mess it up constantly creating. As they say, a cluttered desk is a sign of a "craft genius" :)

Caryn is on Clique Kits international design team as well as Theresa Collins Lifestyle Studio design team.

Her work can be seen on Instagram @thecraftyCaryn

  1. Oh, those papers immediately reminded me of the old Basic Grey Capture line. I think I still have some left, maybe it is time to pull it out, kit it up and use it! I am looking forward to seeing how everyone interpreted this kit.
