Scrapbooking in February: Counterfeit Kit

It's February!! Time for another Counterfeit Kit! I had a big one last month and I used up almost every little bit- I was so happy! I can't seem to help myself when it comes to making these kits. They always turn out really big. 

This month's inspiration kit comes from Scrapdelight:

It's very soft and lovely. The first thing I noticed was the lavender. I was nervous because I had just gone through all my 6x6 paper pads and found only 1 small sheet of purple that had too many other colors on the paper to really qualify as a purple piece of paper. My purple scraps were also pretty slim. 

Turns out, I have a ton of 12x12 purple paper I didn't even realize I had. I had so much fun going through a stack of papers from my stash and pulling out anything purple, I actually had to put some back! So, my interpretation of the kit really did turn out mostly purple, with some neutrals and blues mixed in. 

I am going to call this kit Purple Rain

I know there is a ton of paper. It is crazy. I also pulled out a ton of die cuts. I couldn't help myself. I included some gems and washi. It's going to be a fun scrapping February. 

Thanks for stopping by to check out the madness that is my kit!

  2. Wow, you did uncover lots of purple paper, and lots of fun prints too. Enjoy!

  3. Ha, I love it! You have some fantastic finds in this lovely kit and, who cares if it's big and you 'couldn't help yourself?' It doesn't cost anything when you're shopping your stash! x

  4. Love the variety of purples you pulled into your kit :) I also first noticed the purple of the inspiration kit to get me started. It's fun to find out what we have in our stash once we get to looking :)
