Counterfeit Card Kit and a prize!

Happy National Scrapbook Day! 


I just LOVE that we have our own "holiday".  I think that everyone should have a paid day off...and we should all get presents...don't you think?

I can't help you with the paid day off, but I do have a present to give away!


If you would like to win ALL THREE of these brand new stamp sets, all you need to do is:

Leave a comment with a link to your favorite scrapbook blog

That's it.  I will do a drawing on Monday and announce the winner. 

So, if you came here from Counterfeit Kit Challenge, it is nice to see you!  If you have not been over there yet, then you really should stop by to see all of the NSD fun!

Since it is NSD...and since our "thing" is counterfeiting kits, I thought it would be fun to counterfeit a card kit for today!  Check out the kit we are counterfeiting  here: Counterfeit Kit Challenge or here: Cup Cards to Go.   Isn't this a nice change of pace?  And very easy to put together for today!

Here is my counterfeit card kit:


My papers and punched "lace" paper trim:


My Embellishments:


Close Ups of my Embellishments:




I will admit that I was stuck on the paper.  I over thought it and tried to get to matchy, which never works for me.  Since the kit is pretty small and easy to put together (and I only put in 6x6 paper), I made a second one for Isabel so we can create some cards together.  She is so excited!

I can't wait to see what you all come up with!  Don't forget to leave a comment with your favorite scrappy blog to be entered to win the stamps!

Without sounding all 'brown nosey' the Counterfeit Kit Challenge has quickly become my favourite scrapbooking blog. It's the first blog I check every day!

But before you all arrived on the scene, I think Christine Middlecamp was my ultimate favourite - http://retrospection.typepad.com/ - because there's always gorgeous colours, photography and lots of tutorials.

Happy NSD x

I have no problem sounding "brown-nosey", lol! I LOVE the Counterfeit Kit Challenge! :) I love Laurel Seabrook's blog, http://want2scrap.blogspot.com/. Laurel is both a scrapbooker and a cardmaker, so she shares both types of projects. Plus, she uses products from tons of different companies, so there's always something that I can try or counterfeit! Beth, I love your kit and can't wait to see your cards. I made one and I also made it too matchy-matchy. Going to start from scratch today! :)

I just found your website this week and already feel so inspired! I have to admit that Stacy Julian is my guru for many years now. She cured me from my chronical-orderology disease:D

Besides the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog, my favorite scrapping blog is Julie Fe Fan Balzers blog: balzerdesignstypepad.com. She is a very unique scrapper and mixed media artist, who's work I just love!

Well it goes without saying that I love the Counterfeit Kit Challenge but another site I check regularly is Anthea Peterson's blog http://our-life-story.blogspot.com/. She has a lovely style and a way with embellishments that I love.

I skip around a lot of blogs, but one that shows a lot of products, some quick tutorials, and cute projects is http://www.jennifermcguireink.com
Thanks for a chance to win the stamp sets :)

I agree with Clair - it's the CKCB for me - I've created so many more pages by having a kit to hand and I'm actually USING my stash rather than just stroking it!
Before I discovered the CKCB (through Siân's blog) I think The Studio was my best bet for a great DT and interesting challenges.
