CKC February Kit- Lovely and Kind

Hi you all and welcome to my forgery of the February Counterfeit Kit challenge, I've got to give props to my friend Cindy for doing this cause that is how I found out about it and I just love doing it :) I seen her kit and it looks fantastic and I seen that she plans her kit around what she is going to scrap too, something I need to do next month.
I was so excited to see this kit and I was not disappointed. Counterfeit Kit Challenge has 2 fantastic kit choices and also a Project Life add on, whoop! I made my kit from this inspirational kit:

So my main choice was kit #2 because of all the colors, but may dig into kit #1 if I finish off kit #2 and I chose to include the Project Life kit also, will be in a later post.So looking at kit #2 I see pastel colors, doilies, hearts, polka dots, chevrons, stripes, triangles. I see red, pink, blue, yellow gold, gray. wood color and naturals. I have a tendency to do 2 page layouts so I just might pick 2 of a certain style paper if I think I'll use it for a background other than that I want to try to stay to the kit, except for die-cuts from my machines and cardstock needed for that. With being able to use white, black, kraft and solid color cardstocks to match some colors in the paper patterns if needed for background pages. So here is my kit called Lovely and Kind
So I started with the past 2 kit's leftovers to see if any were close to the kit and kept for this kit before I put them away.
Top row: Abbey Road: garden party, orange crush, let's go racing stripe, brought the board-the red hexagons and the red stripe from the previous kit, Paper Pizazz vellum hearts, Making Memories Heart Love Struck, TPC Studio: The reasons I Love you, Karen Foster: Our Love story (cut up journaling blocks)
Bottom row: Unknown: (2) varied color stripe,Gold and white embossed polka dots, Gold butterfly (for the triangle sheet), (2) American Crafts: Road Trip 'Scenic Route' (the stars), Echo Park: Lovely Chevron, The peach cardstock from last month, Unknown: Live Life paper, Family/Love cut-up sheet, Office Lingo Collection: Paislee page
2 vellum sheets and another cut up sheet (I think this came out the Timeless Stack DCWV
The alphas: Unknown: Black letters, MM: Red creative letters-chunky style, My Mind's Eye: Lush-Flocked chipboard-Pink, The stars and chipboard letters I had gotten in a recent swap box. I have also added 2 more alphas sheets since I took the picture.
^^The Elements^^
Close to my Heart Whoo's Your Valentine Stamp set
Close to my Heart Journaling Spots-6 variety. It'll be interesting to try to use these some how, maybe some smashing will take place this month and I can use it then.
cut up tags and round tags and the sheet behid that is Stomp "Watch Out" large accessories
4 different doilies, Handmade Art-Valentine Day embellishments, variety of Brads/Buttons, various tickets on a variety of cut out sheets, Kaiser Craft: Flutterby-Painted Lady cut up sheet and under that is Echo Park-Dots & Stripes Element Stickers. I will be cutting out the Me & You die cut from one of my machines. I also will be including some new release stamps (shhhh it's a secret for now). I also will use tools within my collection that includes punches and embossing folders if the needs arise (especially for card making). I plan to use my embossing powders this month and would like to give perfect pearls a try too.

That's it, that's my kit Lovely and Kind. The 2-page smashbook layout that was posted yesterday is from the kit and I also have a planned 2-page layout from the November kit that I just haven't had time to do yet. I have a couple of other layouts I want to do that are a totally different theme than this so you will see other layouts that may only have an element or 2 from the kit. I also have a crop at the end of the month and that maybe when I pull in that kit #1 and forge that just ave to wait and see on that one.
Thanks for stopping by today to see what I'm up to in my little corner of the world, check out Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog you just may like to forge a kit f your own to use.



  1. Love your stamp selection. You are brave using recent kit left-overs to seed a new one ... I often find that the same papers languish in kits because I simply just won't use them ... they eventually go into my charity pile!
    Lovely & Kind looks like it's chock full of goodness though so I'm sure you'll have no trouble creating with it. Have fun!

  2. Love the name! You have so many pretty goodies to play with this month - enjoy!

  3. Great kit, Tina. Looks like you are going to be super busy with all three kits going. Can't wait to see what you come up with - especially the Project life!

  4. Great kit Tina! Love those owl stamps :)

  5. Lots of goodies there, I like that you consider your previous kit leftovers for including in the new kit. Way to counterfeit!
