January Counterfeit Kit

Well it is my turn to choose the kit this month.
I've picked this one, UBUD Dreams from Kaisercraft.

(ignore the gold circle that says day three)
Wonderful shades of aquamarine and dark blue with a hint of Morocco & geometric patterns.
There's some wood veneers in their too plus a provision for lace doileys.
How will you interpret this?

Here's what I've compiled.

  • 3 papers from Basic Grey "Little Black Dress"collection,
  •  a Kaisercraft "Timeless" grid pattern & "Blue Bay collection " doors,
  • Heidi Swapp Mixed company with blue flowers
  • More no name papers.

In this photo there are
  • Kaisercraft "Baby blue" paper (B side)
  • Kaisercraft "Blue and Ivy" shaped paper
  • Kaisercraft "Chapter One" shaped paper(It had to be in there!)
My alphas

Carried over from last month is the large white letters plus chipboard letters
Also Basic Grey "Little black dress" letters.
I kept these neutral as I can.

My Embellishments

Included in here are paper doileys, tags featuring doiley shapes, Prima green flowers, a cameo metallic piece and a large copper feather plus a cut out flower and butterfly.
There is also a hand sewn flower (top left) which was given to me at a retreat.
Some lovely goodies there to be sure.
And some wood veneers and hessian

Now here is the order of our blog hop.
Welcome back Stephanie and you'll notice Sue 1 and 2 ( Susan and Susanne) are missing this month.
A BIG welcome to Cindy who is our guest designer this month.

Julene, you chose such a wonderful kit for us to kick off the New Year. I love your take on it - a little more shabby chic, a little more vintage, but still so stylish!

A great kit to forge Julene and you've done yourself proud. Happy New Year!

Well, Julene, you picked a winner for the inspiration kit as proven by all the lovely kits the team has compiled. And on top of that, yours is the truest to the original in my opinion. Enjoy it!

Hi Julene, I know Kylie from back when Shop N Crop was my closest scrapbook shop . . . I've actually had Kylie excitedly pulling the latest Kaisercraft releases out of the box to show me, so your choice this month really made me smile! Your version of the kit is lovely!
