August 2020 - Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit Reveal and Hop

Happy August! –

Hi there! Master Forger Tina here to host the Counterfeit Kit Challenge month of August.

The August Inspirational kit is the Hip Kit Aug 2019 Main Kit  

A pretty purple, blue, pink and yellow kit, which seems like the colors are still a hit with the current kits too other than the added purple. Myself the 1st thing that comes to mind is Sparkle City from Shimelle :) 

But that is me :) I look forward to seeing how you all are inspired by this kit 

So many fun choices going on in this kit and they said in the details that this was a fall kit, myself I can see this in the spring too with those pretty colors. 

If you need some add on kits this may help:

The Embellishment kit is here

I appreciate the opportunity to share my inspiration here with the Counterfeit Kit Community. I’m married, have a son going into college, and two dogs that are spoiled. We run our own business – my hubby works out in the field, and I manage all things office, along with the household and trying to find time for my paper crafting hobbies. I discovered scrapbooking in 2003 when I saw an album made by a Grandmother for her grandson for his high school graduation, and I loved the idea instead of just placing photos into a regular album. I’m an avid traditional scrapbooker and started making junk journals a few years ago; additionally, I like to make an occasional craft project, card, or paper craft gift for friends and family. I scrapbooked chronologically when I started, but now enjoy jumping around, as I have a 12x12 We R Memory Keepers binder album for each year. My pages range from 8x8, 8 1/2x11, and 12x12 in my chronological albums, including mostly traditional, hybrid, Persnickety Prints Memory Pages and collages, various pocket pages, and a handful of Project Life, and, so far – a few Forever Artisan digital pages. My all-time faves to work with are mixed media of all types and paper distressing, tearing, and layering. The type of page that I decide to make depends on what I feel is necessary to preserve our family’s history, memories, and stories – some are showcased more than others and range from 1 photo to multiple photos, and some pages are kept simple and clean to get more pages done and photos into my albums. I try to find some time at the end of my day to go to my ScrHappy Place to create, relax, refresh, and reset for the next day....most times into the wee hours of the morning. I love planning crop weekends with friends and gaining more ScrHappy/Crafty friends along the way. I like to encourage, inspire, and interact with others in the scrapbooking/crafting/memory-keeping world. I am an Admin at Bash Your Scrapbook Stash and a Moderator for PersnicketyPrints’ Storytellers FB Groups. I hope to inspire you in some way here at the Counterfeit Kit Community.
