My Counterfeit Kit and DIY Glitter Tape

I decide to take on the challenge of creating a counterfeit kit thanks to the inspiration over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge. I spent about an hour Sunday looking through the many great kits from several Kit clubs and settled on a great kit from Noel Mignon called Hayride

I love this kit but my main reason behind choosing it has to do with those mismatched October Afternoon Alphas. I have had them in my "stash" for some time now and have never been able to use them...despite trying several times.

I have named my kit Gulf Coast because of the turn it took once I started pulling papers. Please forgive the photos (I had to take them with my phone...My camera is due back from being repaired any day now!!) So without further ado: Gulf Coast. 

Gulf Coast Embellishments
I started with the letter stickers and wood veneers (pictured below) as those were the things that stood out the most to me but from there things took a turn! hehe

wood veneers
The bones of the kit are the same--Very "Sticker-Centric" and around 20 sheets of paper but the colors are my own. Since this is an older kit I gave mine a bit of an update with some more "trendy" items. (Read-Sequins and Handmade Polaroid Frames) I also threw in the hand-cut hearts in place of the canvas butterflies which come in to play for my challenge (but more on that in a minute). 

Gulf Coast Papers (and more Embellies!!) 

I pulled my colors from that OA Sticker Sheet because I saw that as the one piece that tied Noel's kit together. As for the contents of my kit...Here goes:

Papers:  Cardstock: Light Green and Orange by Colorbok, Teal by Recollections, Grey Textured Cardstock by Bazzill-Two Scoops, and Kraft by Amy Tangerine Ready Set Go. 6x6 Papers: 2 6x6 Dear Lizzy Fifth and Frolic Papers, 6 6x6 Amy Tangerine Ready Set Go Papers. 12x12 Pattern Papers: My Minds Eye-The Sweetest Thing-Lavender "The Best", My Minds Eye-The Sweetest Thing-Tangerine "Together" and "Happy", Studio Calico-Sundrifter-"Wildflowers", "Meadowland", "Dreamweaver", "In Love", "Seafoam", and "Set Sail", Pink Paislee-Cottage Farms "Basket" and Amy Tangerine-Ready, Set, Go "Get Cozy"

Letter Stickers: Amy Tangerine-Tile Thickers-Blue/Teal, American Crafts-Remarks "French Toast", American Crafts-Thickers "Notarized", October Afternoon-Mini Market "Pink and Black", October Afternoon-Farmhouse 12x12 "Found Alphas.

As for the Glitter Tape-I have taken the "Red Line Tape" or "Terrifically Tacky Tape" and laid it out across white  paper. Peel off the backing and apply glitter. Then cut them down to size.

So simple and so much cheaper than the rolls of glitter tape with 4 yards for $3.00. So that is it for my first Counterfeit Kit. I will be back tomorrow with a challenge for you. (Hint: it has something to do with paper hearts) So until tomorrow-Stay Crafty My Friends!!
