November Counterfeit Kit

Well I'm back for my second month of the  Counterfeit Kit Challenge and they are focusing on Jenni Bowlin's November 2013 kits. The main kit has a lot of darker colors for maybe Thanksgiving and Autumn/Fall type layouts but I just didn't have much of these colors in my stash. Once again I'll be adding cardstock as I need it.


So with that in mind I made a list of what I wanted to get done this month and pulled some of my papers in sets with that in mind.  Here is paper set number 1.  The top papers are for an altered journal for someone who likes elephants.  The bottom papers 1-2 are for my oldest son's layout - there was a paper with a map on it so even though mine is brighter I'm adding it my kit, 3 - I have no idea what I'll use it for, and 4-5 are for Thanksgiving or Halloween layouts.  I have duplicate paper for papers 2-5 in this set.

 
Paper set number 2 is for layouts nothing specific  I just thought would make good Fall/ Autumn type layouts. I have no duplicate papers in this set they are all single papers so our layouts will all be different this time around.
 
 
Paper set number 3 is a few die cut papers that I again thought would go well with the Thanksgiving, Fall/Autumn type layouts.  I do plan to make a couple of the blank pages for the guys using these.  I have one piece of paper in this set that is duplicated and that is the Blue Twist by Rhonna Farrer.

 
One of Jenni Bowlin's kits was for a mini album so I pulled another set of papers for my own mini album. The difference is that I'm going to make one using my Cricut to cut my shaped pages.
 

Now for the embellishments.  There were several add on kits for the month of November and I'm going to be using my Cricut and Silhouette for some of them.  I have a couple of owls, the deer feathers and leaves on my Cricut Cartridges and the pie chart as a Silhouette file. The deer is also on a die.  I have a bunch of tags and journal spots that will be printed off and some tickets.  The brown and green journaling papers below are from Making Memories. 


I think I'll see what I can do with some felt as I really like how that looked on my last layout for October. I also plan on using a variety of stamps this month.  I didn't use very many last month so I want to be sure to incorporate them this time. 

Thanks for stopping by.

I like how you went about choosing items for your kit this month Cindy! I too picked items for specific projects... hopefully this will make it easier to tackle my to-do list. Can't wait to see what you create.

Enjoyed your unique approach in your presentation. Using sub-sets of paper is a new idea to me. I think my favorite is the second one.
