January Kit for CKCB!

I have spent the last half of 2014 really missing participating over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog!!!  With Mom's 80th birthday, I was creating her birthday most of the summer and fall.  I love making my own kit from my stash!  I have been going over the top large!  Yet again, I am in the middle of creating for a friend and I need some me time creating for me.  I forced myself into a quickly put together a kit to do several things.

Small kit!!!  I did's small!
Enough embellishments to make me happy....did that, too!
Keep my 12x12 papers to 6 or under....did that, too, with five!  I do have lots of coordinating scraps!
Well I did remember I had a 6x6 paper from Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic
At the same time I allowed myself one thing to go overboard on....I chose three alphas sets!

Best part it all fits nicely in a 13 x13 Ziploc with room to spare!

Now with that all said, I reserve several things I can use in my creations:

1)  Cardstock
2)  Flower Stash
2) Inks, mists, paints, twine, DMC Floss
3) Stencils
4)  Dies

I seem to be in a real matting mode of late with photos and just in general wanting more dimension.  I think it is due to working so much with G45 for Mom's birthday.  I also just stocked up on cardstock!  Couldn't miss the deal HSN had on Bazzill.  I've purchased two boxes!

So what inspired me....first the colors and second was Angela with this comment on her blog!

I need to get some serious stash busting done this year, and the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog is one way of getting that stash combined into up to date, fashionable, and appealing craft kits.

Thank you Angela

My Kit!

So where did my mind go for the kit.....after the paper......I needed some gold and I am not a foil, glittery, silver or gold person....then remembered I had some of the Pink Paislee Luxe Rubons.  Then the rest came quickly together!  I can get a fun layout from my kit or a wonderful detailed layout!

Thank you for stopping by and consider playing along with the Counterfeit Kit Challenge!

Until next time!

I think you are going to make those 5 sheets go a long way!! Looks like a lot of great stuff. I had that camera chipboard with my November Counterfeit and never got to using it. I still have it out and had created a burst of gold cardstock to look like the flash going off. I'm hoping to use it with my kit this month now. I also have some of the Elle's wood pieces. Looking forward to your creations. Enjoy!

I'd say you've covered all the essentials in your kit - spotted some faves of mine, the bokeh paper and the MME stickers for two. Enjoy your kit!
