I'm in love with my June Counterfeit Kits!

Did you see it?  The "s" on the end of Kit in my title?  Yep.  I made TWO kits this month because, well, I just couldn't pick.  Which is the same reason we have a choice of kits to counterfeit in the first place.  LOL  They both had a similar feel to me and are a great jump off from our Wonderful World Of Color NSD Event from last month.  (Seriously proud of my fabulous team for pulling that off so well.)

So let's jump right into checking out the kits for this month!

Scrapbook Circle Shop has a great kit for May:  High Five!

I threw caution to the wind and decided to not be so literal with my interpretation (I wasted a whole day trying to recreate that circle paper...epic fail).  Instead I just started pulling some fun, colorful paper and embellishments and let that direct me.

Next up is the Summer School Workshop Kit from Clique Kits!  What a fun concept and what a great kit!

More random paper pulls!  I loved just digging in and picking papers I liked.  My embellishment hunt led to some fox stamps (by Close to My heart), so I will have a great time with that direction!

I pulled some great colorful embellishments (dots, mists, sequins) that will work well with either kit as well.  I am eager to try out some gloss gel medium (like a stencil paste) as well this month.

My office looks like Rainbow Bright has been visiting me.  LOL

I am really excited to see what kits the design team has put together for this month.  Angela is up next with a super kit to share with you!

So impressed that you made TWO kits. What fun. And they are both such great ones too. Full of colour and inspiration! Looks like it will be a creative month for you. Looking forward to seeing your shares.

Why settle for one, when you can have both? And don't they play well together? I would like to learn more about using stencils and gel medium. I be watching for your post(s) using that.
