The first thing that I decided to counterfeit was Elle's Studio Serendipity Lil' Snippet Labels. I love these labels but they didn't fit my colors. I had a few of these left over from some earlier projects but when I put them up against Summer Sky (My July Kit) they looked oddly out of place.
Now I could have thrown them in there and and been one step closer to having my kit look that much closer to the inspiration but the whole point of making these kits is to help us make the pages and be productive. I am known to be a waffler....Every decision takes two or three hours so if they were in my kit I would have tried to make myself use them and I would have not liked the results so instead I made some that matched perfectly and I am so happy I did.
These are super easy and all you need is scraps and bits and bobs.
That's it. Really quite simple. I cut the strips to be about two inches by 1/2-1 inch and I think they came out pretty well.
The second thing I counterfeited was the Pebbles Basics Mini Clothspins.
All you need for this is mini cloths pins ($1.29 for 50 @ Wal-mart) and fingernail polish....And what girl doesn't have at least one bottle around!
Then paint...That's it. I am very happy with both. Stay tuned because on the 12th we have some inspiration and a challenge to use your kit going up over on the CKC Blog. I hope you stop by and join us!!
