July 2022 - Just The Gist Of It

 Hello, everyone!  Today is the day where we try to help you get started when your not quite sure where to start with putting your own kit together. Sometimes it's pretty easy to put a kit together, but then there are times it's just not clicking! 

So let's start with the inspiration kit for the month from  Citrus Twist Kits- May 2022 ROUND TRIP 12x12 Add-On Kit from Citrus Twist- which you can find here

Let's discuss the papers from this kit for a great way to start a kit.



Quite a mix in this kit with lots of variety to choose from. For the travel theme there is the map paper which most travel kits have so an easy one to grab to get a kit started. There are also the ones that have icons that are related to travel that most other travel collections have that can be pulled from too and mixed in. Then add some neutrals for the needed backgrounds for a layout so a few of those and you just built yourself a kit with a great theme and lots of papers to choose from :)  The florals are a nice touch to any collection or kit.

And of course, 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.    

Here's what we have coming up this month: 

  • 4th July: Forgery on the Fourth - Master Forgers share simple ideas for creating kit elements 
  • 6th July: Mini-kit Reveal and Project Showcase - inspiration for a smaller kit or project idea 
  • 12th & 18th July: Challenges #1 & #2 - to inspire you to get creating from your own kit 
  • 24th July: Follower Showcase - who has caught our eye this month 
  • 31st July: Killing Kits - an idea or two for using up the bits & pieces left in your kit box

 We always love to see your work, so please share your kits and projects with us. Post them in our Facebook Community, or share them on Instagram (we are @counterfeitkitchallenge or tag us using #counterfeitkitchallenge and #ckcjuly2022).

 Thanks so much for stopping by! We can't wait to see your kits and projects this month!
