June 2020 - Just The Gist Of It

Hey CKCB Followers!  MF Tara here!  I hope this post finds you all thriving and not just surviving this time in our world!  Our latest Counterfeit Kit Challenge inspiration kit went live yesterday. Are you having a little trouble getting started? Let's see if I can help you out!!  

Clique Kits has this description on their site about Wonderful World:

The February Base Kit is called Wonderful World and features Paper and embellishments from Alexandra Renke of Germany, plus other designer collections like Vicki Boutin's Let's Wander and Heidi Swapp's Storyline Chapters and Art Walk. The golden ochre and light teal in this kit along with all the other colors glow and will be perfect for any adventure!

All of our Master Forgers have their own unique way to curate their monthly kits  You should definitely check out yesterday's blog hop to see how they ended up with their beautiful kits.  I personally, let a piece or two of patterned paper grab my attention.  If I have exact matches of any of the patterned papers, I will grab those first.  I started with that Heidi Swapp cute rainbow patterned paper!  From there, I added the rest of my papers.  Once I have my papers pulled, I started adding embellishments from my stash.  

Here's some close-up photos of the embellishments in this month's inspiration kit!

Another productive approach can be to analyze the inspiration kit. 

You might make a list of the items:  

Kraft Tags
Pretty Envelopes
It might help you to have a Color Palette! 

Don't forget that we'll be back throughout the month to give you some tips, ideas and challenges as you put together and use your kit:
  • June 4th: We'll have our "Forgery on the Fourth" post where the Master Forgers will reveal how they created their own version of some of the items in this month's kit. 
  • June 6th: We'll reveal a couple of mini-kits and projects, in case you're a little limited for time this month and would prefer a more petite kit. 
  • June 12th & 18th: We'll give you two challenges to help you use the kit you've made. 
  • June 24th: I'll be showcasing one of the CKC community who's caught my eye this month 
  • June 30th: We'll be offering another installment in our Killing Kits Series to help you find ways to use up all of your kit. 

We always love to see your work, so please share your kits and projects with us. You can use our Monthly Link-up page, post them in our Facebook Community, or share them on Instagram (we are @counterfeitkitchallenge or tag us using #counterfeitkitchallenge and #ckcjune2020). 
Thanks so much for stopping by! We can't wait to see your kits and projects this month.
