    Counterfeit Kit Challenge

    Back in January, thanks to Siân (Seffie on UKS), I found the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog ( CKCB ) and have been hooked ever since. Hopefully a few of you will be too!

    If you have ever looked longingly at the latest greatest monthly scrapbook kit club, admiring their beautiful kits ... but knew you needed more stash like a hole in the head ... then this could be the challenge is for you!

    Rather than giving the credit card yet another outing and paying extra for P&P - shop your stash! Create your own pizza box full of goodies, based on a professional kit, and get creating! There's no need to stalk the postie as it's right there ready to use and what's more the CKCB provide plenty of links to help the counterfeiting of embellishments as well as ideas and challenges helping you to actually use the kits!

    Here's how it works each month:

    5th - the CKCB announce the kit to copy - it'll be a current kit so you may need to hide your credit card the day before!

    Links and tutorials shared on the blog to help you get counterfeiting.

    14th - Challenge#1 to get you started using your kit.

    ±18th - Challenge#2 to be featured on the monthly Blog Hop if you like that sort of thing

    21st - Challenge#3 to help you finish off your kit ready for next month

    25th - deadline for signing up to join in the CKCB Blog Hop with Challenge#2

    28th - Blog Hop for sharing Challenge#2 and anything else that you've made.

    On top of that there's a monthly link to share your kits, creations and forgery tips with other counterfeiters - and there have been prizes too!! The more you join in, the more chances you have!!

    To give you an example of what I'm talking about - here are pictures of the February kit-to-copy from Scraps of Darkness and my counterfeit kit (which kept to the feel of the kit, but used a totally different colour scheme). Then there's this month's kit from Studio Calico and my take on it.
    Two useful kits - cost to me £0

    If anyone fancies a free counterfeit kit, one of the DT at the CKCB is offering a give away of a kit (plus add-on) that she's counterfeited from the March Lime Tart Kit. Take a look here.

    Definately jumping aboard with this - this is a real venture into blogs for me though as I've always been a lurker til now, I just can't get to grips with how to join in on the things

    Just one more sleep to go before you can get counterfeiting ladies ... there's a sneek peek on the CKCB blog now if you want to look.

    And here, especially for all you UKS Counterfeiters, is an extra one from me
