Time for a new Counterfeit Kit Challenge, that is! I was so super-excited to see that this month's challenge is to counterfeit Studio Calico's latest release! I just love their stuff anyway, and I have purchased a couple kits in the past, so it was extra-fun to save some dough and counterfeit one instead!
Here's the actual main kit, Into the Woods (which sold out in, oh five hours or so...):
And here's my take:
I had plenty of papers to choose from for reasonable facsimilies, including some older Studio Calico stuff I already had. I also broke out an older Papertrey Ink stamp set to replace the cute bee stamp in the kit.
I could have stopped there, but I decided to replicate some add-on kits as well....Here's Babbling Brook
And here's my version:
There are three other add-ons available (or formerly available) from Studio Calico -- I won't show all three photos, but I took bits and pieces from each and came up with one more of my own:
Will I use it all up? Probably not. But I gotta say, I'm really inspired to make stuff with these kits! In fact, I already made one project! Here:
Yes, those are photos of our cat with a Justin Bieber hairdo. No, we did not invest in a cat wig ;) It's part of Jimmy Fallon's iPhone app (LNJF) called "Bieber Yourself." How could we resist? Most of the goodies on this layout came from my main kit, with a few elements from the add-on. And yes, I used my bee stamps. Bieber=bee-ber. I crack myself up.
Anyway, happy counterfeiting to you all! I'll be back in the studio today...who knows what's next?
Oh, and be sure to stop by again tomorrow -- I'll be celebrating a blog birthday, and there just might be a little giveaway!
Have a delightful day!
