February Counterfeit Kit - Hello Lovely

The February Counterfeit Kit it up they are using one from Emma this month from the online store/kit club Mind The Scrap

I have to warn you that this is a really long post with lots of pictures as I changed up how I put everything together.

I have all the papers grouped into sections of how I am going to use them but I pulled papers from Amy Tangerine - Stitched, Capture Life, Me and My Big Ideas; The paper Studio, DCWV - Sweet Tangerine Stack and cardstock from Craft Smith and few sheets of Maggie Holmes.

Top row:
2 papers from Stitched and Me and My Big Ideas, Craft Smith - Black Cardstock, The Paper Studio - Tattered and Worn Stack, Maggi Holmes - Style Board, Craft Smith - Gray Cardstock, Next 3 papers are Amy Tangerine - Stitched, next 3 DCWV Sweet Tangerine Stack, Next two are Capture Life, Amy Tangerine - Stitched, Maggi Holmes - Styleboard and American Crafts - DIT Shop

Bottom Row: first three Amy Tangerine - Stitched Craft Smith - Gray, the remaining papers are Amy Tangerine - Stitched including the three cut apart sheets which I have not cut apart yet.

6x6 paper pads: Simple Stories - Documented; Stampin' Up - Welcome Neighbor: DCWV - The Basics Stack

Now I have two sets of extra embellishments.

Sticker Sheets: Stickopotamus -speech bubble, Crate paper border pieces (unknown collection) Crate paper borders - neighborhood collection; Recollection stickers; Jenni Bowlin - Homespun Banner Stickers; Vellum Quote Stack - Rock King; Rub-Ons: My Mind's Eye - Miss Caroline; Cherry Arte - I Love You, DCWV - Rockstar; Making Memories - noteworthy journal spots; Project life kits:

Embellishment tray: Bead landing - crafting beads with words; punched and die cut shapes; tags, Mrs. Grossmans - natural art, tags, scraps of lace, rhinestones and pearls, metal pieces, doilies and chip board ready for ink or paint. and doilies.

As I was making my page kits I added some embellishments to each page set.  This is something that Nicole Jones does and I am also hoping that I will use more of my embellishments this way. So here is my page sets with embellishments.

Page Set #1:

Papers: 2 papers from Stitched and Me and My Big Ideas, unknown scraps of blue and aqua; Unknown stars stickers, a couple of my pre die cut shapes, a couple of Project Life cards, and some buttons from My Mind's Eye - Cut and Paste

Page Set #2:

Papers: Craft Smith - Black Cardstock, The Paper Studio - Tattered and Worn Stack, Maggi Holmes ; DCWV Rock Queen Chipboard Embellishments, various buttons, ribbons, silk leaves, a few emboss and die cut pieces.

Page Set #3:
Papers: Craft Smith - Gray Cardstock, Next 3 papers are Amy Tangerine - Stitched, more of my pre die cuts, ribbon, pieces of Crate Paper sticker borders, silk flowers, designer tape, Rock Queen chipboard, rhinestones and buttons, ribbon and a little glossy accent butterfly from a previous project. 

Page Set #4:

Papers:  Amy Tangerine - Stitched, Next two are Capture Life a 6x6 from Stampin' Up - Welcome Neighbor, pre made mini envelopes, ribbon, flowers buttons and a heart strip.

Page Set #5:

Papers: DCWV Sweet Tangerine Stack - I added the first four papers to this set. I try to scrap 3 sets of layouts and there just wasn't enough papers. I added to this set more of the emboss and die cut tags, some of the pre made butterflies and envelopes, a couple of misted doilies from another project, tickets, silk flowers, buttons a few die cuts and one of my pre made stick pins.

Page Set #6:

Page Set #7:

Page Set #8:

Paper: Amy Tangerine - Stitched and Stampin' Up - Welcome Neighbor; die cut shapes, playing card, silk flowers. this is why I have the extra embellishment trays - I know I will pull from it when I make these layouts.

Page Set #9:

Paper: Amy Tangerine - Stitched and Stampin' Up - Welcome Neighbor; die cut shapes, various flowers and stamped shapes, rhinestones, brads, premade envelope and butterfly and a few scraps of ribbon.

Then I added some papers from The paper Studio - Four Seasons and everything in between stack. I thought I should do some Valentine's day scrapping.

Paper: The paper Studio - Four Seasons Making Memories: Paperie Rouge - Journaling spots,  Stickers: Jolee's boutique - heart pieces, unknown fabric tabs, unknown Crate Paper border; Love rhinestones; and a couple of ribbon hearts I put together.

Well that is my February Kit Hello Lovely.  I did not pick out any stamps, Cricut Cartridge or Silhouette files but will add them as I go along. I will also add cardstock as needed.

Thanks for stopping by.

Lovely papers and bits you've collected in that kit. I like the idea of adding in more embellishments to page sets - but I'd never think that far ahead. Enjoy your kit!

I love the idea of breaking down the monthly kit into page kits! I may need to try that. They all look great!

What a great way to get organised - I may pinch this idea for next month's kit as I have a weekend scrapbook retreat!
