Counterfeit Kit Reveal: Hello, I Love You

This month for the Counterfeit Kit  we were to use the Hip Kit Club's May 2016 kit as inspiration for our own kit. It just so happens I belong to the Hip Kit Club and had not gotten the opportunity to use my May kit yet! (still working on April's!) I decided then to still do the counterfeiting and just make myself one giant coordinating kit between the two to work on a whole album of pages. Yay! 

Starting with the papers, here is the Hip Kit's version:

Here are my counterfeits of those sides, trying to match colors: 

And here is the other side of the Hip Kit's papers:

And here are the papers from the kit I put together to match:

Next I moved on to the ephemera. Here is the set that we received with the Hip Kit:

And here are the pieces I put together from my stash:

 The Hip Kit letter stickers are on the right. The ones for my kit are on the left. 

Wood veneer from the kit on the right. Wood veneer from my stash on the left.

Enamel dots from the kit on the left. Enamel dots from my stash on the right.

Chipboard from the kit on the left. Chipboard from my stash on the right.

And I didn't order the embellishment kit so I had fun putting together my own inspired by theirs:

I am naming my kit "Hello, I Love You" and I am excited to get working with it along side the May 2016 Hip Kit. I am going to say it was a lot harder to do this when I already owned the kit because I started to get very particular about which papers and embellishments to use that would match. I'm still excited with how it turned out, though! 


  1. It is good to see what you get in this kit laid out separately like you've done. You have matched many elements to extend your kit too. Excellent!

  2. Oh cool I recogonize some of those chipboard pieces (from my own stash! May have to dig them out and use them with this kit now :)I just love your presentation and it's fun to see the counterfeit proving once again that anyone can counterfeit a kit even when you have the kit on hand :) marvelous

  3. Very brave to counterfeit a kit you already own ... I'd have been tempted to go with the EXACT copy i.e. the original. Still, this means that you have plenty of supplies to use this month - Happy Scrapping!

  4. Lucky you to already own the original kit! I love that you combined your April kit with the May. I hope you are able to get them both used up this month!

  5. What a fab idea.. love your thought process!

  6. Nice job on matching both sides, this is a great kit. Enjoy.
