July 2022 - Counterfeit Kit Reveal & Hop

 It's July! Oh my half the year has just gone by in a flash! Master Forger Tina here with some thoughts and her choice of inspirational kit this month. We are enjoying the 1st real month of summer with yard work, gardening and relaxing! Looking forward to vacation next month and scrapping that when I can so from there I'll go into this month's Inspirational kit I chose.

As the summer months come into being so does vacations so I thought that this would be a great kit to inspire us to get out those vacation theme scrapbook items and those vacation pictures to be scrapped.

I'm focusing on the May 2022 add-on kit from Citrus Twist

May 2022 ROUND TRIP 12 x 12 Add-On Kit from Citrus Twist

Capture your travel stories with this kit that features alot of Maggie Holmes Round Trip Collection (American Crafts) plus products from Pinkfresh Studio, 49 and Market, and Citrus Twist. This kit contains 12 x 12 patterned paper and embellishments.

Here is the Full Kit:

I'm loving the blues, yellows and pinks with a hint of purple in the kits lately and it's great to see it in a travel kit too.

We are delighted to have Clem Reid join us this month as our Guest Designer

Hi I'm Clem, It is really exciting to be guest designer for July with the Counterfeit Kit Challenge community. I live in Shropshire UK with my husband and 6 year old daughter. I have been scrapbooking since 2003 when my American housemate introduced me and I've been obsessed with pretty papers and embellishments ever since. I love that it combines crafting and storytelling. I love how scrapbooking can bring people together who share this loved hobby. It also helps me to relax from my job as a Therapy radiographer. I am mainly a 12x12 scrapbooker but do some pocket pages. A great kit this month. I especially love the florals, doilies and pastel colours in this kit as well as the travel theme. It seems perfect as we reach summer and can start to take more trips this year. I have pulled out lots of travel embellishments I have collected over the years and papers that have similar colours and patterns.

I can be found mainly at Clem @smilinthrulife and my new website Home - Mindful, Create, Connect ( where I will be sharing my creations. 

Happy Scrapping
