April 2020 - Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit Reveal & Blog Hop

Hello Counterfeiters. I'm so excited to be our host for April. I had a lot of fun choosing our inspiration kit for the month and I hope that you'll find it inspiring while we're all stuck at home.

Our inspiration kits for this month are the Cocoa Daisy, Orchard Path Kits. Cocoa Daisy have a wide selection available to suit most crafters - with a Pocket Kit, Travellers Notebook Kit, Planner Kit and lots and lots of extras.

I think the kit, with it's lovely soft colours and nature themed embellishments is the perfect embodiment of spring, but I also love that there are a few darker colours scattered throughout the kits - which makes it a versatile kit for counterfeiting. Go your own way! 

To help us on our way with our kits this month, I'm so happy to introduce one of my favourite scrapbookers, the lovely Mel Davis, as our Guest Designer for the month. You can find Mel over on Instagram, where she has a dedicated scrapbooking feed -

Hi, I'm Mel. I live in Auckland, New Zealand and have been scrapbooking on and off for 19 years. Even though I've subscribed to multiple kit clubs over the years, I don't tend to scrap from kits and, after feeling guilty about them for a few months, break them up and put them into my stash. Making my own kit was definitely a challenge but after getting the wonderful tip from Shannon's February video to make a list from the inspiration kit, it came together really well. I hope you enjoy seeing what I have created to share with you this month.

Pop on over to Mel's Instagram feed (and make sure that you follow her, so that you can see what she creates with her kit this month) then head back here to follow the rest of this month's blog hop!
