September Counterfeit Kit - Enjoy the little things

This month the Counterfeit Kit Challenge September Kit for inspiration is the Studio Calico Lost River Kit.

There is also a Project Life Kit:

and a Planner Kit.
As usual I went outside the box when putting my September Counterfeit Kit together. I liked the dark blue with the writing on it but only had black with writing on it. I like the grey that was in the inspiration kit so I have several sheets of grey pattern paper. Instead of going with a bright yellow I wanted to use up some older paper which is more of a golden. As for the embellishments there was pennants and circles and word stickers - I've pulled embellishments from my reject container to add as embellishments.

Paper set 1:
The Paper Studio Pearlized cardstock, Recollections - Tan Quilt and blue Tan Plaid, The Paper Studio Pearlized cardstock, DCWV Photo Reel Stack 3 - spools, seas shells, water and beach,  The Paper Studio Pearlized cardstock and Adornit Carolee's Creations - Fireworks.

Paper Set 2:
Amy Tangerine Stitched,  The Paper Studio Pearlized cardstock in white and grey, My Mind's Eye - Lost and Found 3 - Lace Fan, Yellow Floral paper, Yellow Honey Paper, Bingo Paper, Collage paper, White Floral paper and Multi Plaid Paper.

As for the embellishments I pulled a container that I have been collecting my rejects from other projects. In this container I have pattern paper I fussy cut, or stamped images I fussy cut and a few embossed pieces - just a mess of what didn't make it onto my other layouts or cards or projects. 

There is twine and buttons and sequins and enamel dots, punched birds, and die cut deer. So I'm going to clean out this box as I scrap this month.

I'm adding a 6x6 paper pad as it has the dark blues, woodgrains, and 3x3 cards from the inspiration kit. I pulled a couple of different stamp stets: Impression Obsession - Express Yourself; a Heidi Swapp stamp set; Unity Stamp Co - July 2013 Spirit of Summertime; Stampin Up - Button, Button.

Thanks for stopping by.

Perfect take on the kit! I love the idea of your reject container for those pesky pieces that are leftover. :D

A great kit with luscious papers and interesting bits and bobs.

I second Leslie's comment on the reject box - such a great idea! I end up with little piles of things all over my table, so I think maybe I'll start one of my own.

Oh nice, that 6 x 6 pad and the stamp set look to have great potential.
