Hello 2017

Welcome to the final post of the January CKCB Members' Blog Hop; if you didn't reach me from Cindy then you might want to start at the beginning with Lisa (the full hop list is here).  We had a choice of three challenges to use for the hop (#1 Doors , #2 Zentangles, #3 Perfect Day) or indeed, anything made from this month's kit.  I started a new job this month, so scrapping time has been short and I have several unfinished pages ... but I did have time to complete a card from the scraps:

That's it for the CKCB Members' Hop - I hope you had fun!

Goodbye 2016 - and welcome 2017.  Have you broken any New Year's Resolutions already?  I've resolved not to make any ;-)

As it's the first of the month, I've grabbed some stash and I'm ready to join in with the Master Forger reveal over at the  Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog.

This month's kits-to-copy, was chosen by Julene from the Shop’n’Crop based on a brand new Kaisercraft collection Ubud Dreams.  Our guest designer Cindy is starting us off, and I'm after Susan.

Lots of mint and navy and black and white with some hessian and wood veneer and maybe a little kraft?  Funnily enough I have a similarly coloured collection from Bo Bunny (Zip-A-Dee-Doodle) and based my kit around that:

Jimjams - Jan 2014 Counterfeit Kit details The reverse sides of the sheets are all black and white doodly patterns which should be useful.

I included some kraft-core cardstock and a sheet of Crate Paper's Wonder My Dear with a selection of veners and some woven trims as well as a few ribbons ... I have more ribbon than I'll ever use in a lifetime ... better make a small dent in it!

Now it's time to hop over to see what Kelly has for you.  If you want to visit all the Master Forgers or you want to know more about kit counterfeiting pop over to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog today.

Happy New Year !!!
