March Counterfeit Kit - Waiting for Spring

This month's Counterfeit Kit Challenge inspiration kit is by Ali Edwards. It had a lot of orange and green colors in the kit - I pulled mainly papers that have those colors in it. .

I started pulling papers like I did last month along with embellishments that I would use on that set of pages and took my photos per page set (so this is another long post)

Here is my March Counterfeit Kit - Waiting for Spring.

Page Kit #1: Unknown Cardstock in Orange, Coral, White and Cream; Anna Griffin Pattern papers. I added a few blue accents as one of the papers has some blue in it. A bunch of different flowers, buttons, lace and twine plus a few die cuts.

Page Kit #2: DVWC Orange Cardstock, DCWV - Timeless Texture Stack; MOD - Starburst paper; Foof-a-La - Autumn Leaves. I added a couple of different sized trims as haven't made up my mind if I'm make a 12x12 layouts or 8 1/2 x 11 layouts with this set of papers. a few buttons, die cut flowers, silk flowers, and a couple scraps of embossed white cardstock
Page Kit #3: DCWV Green Cardstock; Pink Paisley - She Art "Soar", Fancy Pants - Botanical "Tulip". There are a few buttons, some silk flowers, a die cut flowers, a couple of shaped brads, lace and some glass squares.

Page Kit #4: Recollections - White cardstock; The papers and alphabet are from We R Memory Keepers - Madam Royal pack along with the die cut; then I added some more lace, silk flowers and a few buttons.

Page Kit #5: DCWV Cardstock in black but I may substitute in brown. Crate Paper - Static Collection "Road Trip", "Torn" and "Reactions". The die cut are from the same collection. then I included some green ribbon and black twine.

Page Kit #6: DCWV Cardstock in yellow; Creative Imaginations Karen Russel "Remember". This is another one I don't know what size I will be scrapping. I added just a few buttons and flowers. There is a hint of blue and green on the lines of the paper but I just could not find a cardstock match for it. 

Page Kit #7: The Paper Studio - Four Seasons and everything in between. I will probably add some twine to this but I could not decide on the cardstock I wanted to use so I will add that later.

I'm adding the Easter and St Patrick's Day Project Life cards from the Holiday Edition to this kit along with the March calendar one from Amy Tangerine Stitched paper pad. I've added the Easter and St Patrick's Day paper from the Paper Studio Four Seasons and Everything in between, some already cut embellishments from Silhouette, chipboard Easter eggs and butterflies, a few felt flowers, a couple of different rub on and a green sticker sheet. I have a couple of word stamps hidden below the paper and a couple of distress inks - Mowed lawn, peeled paint, ripe persimmon and rusty hinge.

Thanks for stopping by.

Super cute kit and I like how your breaking it down into page kits too :) Are you enjoying Nicole's class ?

Each one of those has it's own merit, but I'm in love with the orange one!

I love the touch of blue that appears in this kit - it brings in a totally different feel! I also love the little calendar from Amy Tan (I have that set and I love seeing them pop up in other people's projects!)
