December 2021 - Scrappy's Counterfeit Kit Challenge Advent Calendar Kit! Day One

Counterfeit Kit Challenge is all about shopping our own stash & creating a personally curated kit. 

Today is the beginning of “the most wonderful time of the year” but that often means our crafty time gets pushed aside. The LAST thing you need is another item on your To-Do list, BUT we still need a little craftiness in our days – and we’re here to help. How about working on a holiday gift to yourself?

We will have a quick daily prompt to hunt & gather a box of goodies for Christmas by spending 1-5 minutes each day tossing a prescribed item into a kit box for a project of your choosing to be tackled in January, or even between Christmas & New Year’s Eve! Easy-peasy.


We begin that journey by deciding what we are building our kit FOR.  There are a few different ways to zero in on a kit that you can make good use of:

You may already be prepped & producing a daily December project (& we can’t wait to see!) but if you plan to document AFTER December this may be a painless way to be ready with your supplies. Maybe jot down your in-the-moment journaling & then all that’s left to do is drop those photos into a digital folder for printing!

(My 2018 December Daily ephemera - gulp!)


If you are like most memory keepers there is probably a UFO – UnFinished Object project - waiting in the wings to be crafted or completed. Go find it & set it aside. Go ahead! We’ll wait

(I've got quite a few choices!)


Choose a theme (travel, All About Me, bucket list), color palettes, a special person or relationship, celebrate a season, a“personal favorites” project, etc. 


Pull your kit together with the purpose of using your scrappy supplies in your art journal. 

Now that you’ve made your choice grab a container, designate a drawer, or dedicate a spot on your worktop to collect your items. Toss in a pen & a sheet of blank paper or a notepad to jot things down as they come up.

That’s it for Day One!

Tell us about your choice over in the Facebook Counterfeit Kit Challenge group! Some of our Design Team will be playing along, too. 

Beginning tomorrow you will be given something to add to your kit. We hope you will share in the group as you add new things! It will be fun to watch our kits grow over the days until Christmas Eve.

Thanks for stopping by!
