So here is my October Kit - Fun Stuff.

I pulled my papers and embellishments differently this month.
I love the colors in the "plus sign" paper so I pulled some papers with red and pinks and blues,  a diagonal stripe and a vertical stripe. I love the Heidi Swapp Hathorne paper so I pulled in a small flower print and a large flower on wood grain paper. The elements had a lot of leaves so I pulled in another large print paper with a fern on it.

Top Row: Teresa Collings -Sweet Afternoon "In the Park"; next two paper - DCWV Mainstreet Stack; Basic Grey - Blush "Girlfriend" white cardstock, Basic Grey - Blush "Mini Chocolate" and " Eternity"; Jen Hadfield - Best of -Black with white polka dots; DCWV - Taj mahal Stack - two green based papers; Cherry Arte - "Girl Power"

Bottom Row: Jen Hadfield - Best of - two tone gray checked; Color Bok - Delilah stack; Color Bok - Delilah stack; Webster Pages - Always True; Jen Hadfield - Best of - Chevron paper, Black and White flowers, Black and white pattern; DCWV - Photo Reel Stack - white woodgrain, flowers on dark woodgrain and fern paper.

I pulled stamps and dies that represent the flowers and branches, hearts, birds, labels, notepad  and stack of books.

I didn't use my Thickers from my previous kit so I added them into this one, a partially used 6x6 pad - Pink Paislee Pick me up and the die cuts, 7 gypsies rub ons, sequins, DIY enamel dots, buttons, cloud embossing folder, Sizzix die - Flowers and Branches, Monstera Leaf stencil and Leaf sample dies and a frame die.

So I pulled in several stamp sets that have the similar icons that are on the sticker sheets. From Unity Stamp Company - May 2012 {Love in an instant}  for the camera and Polaroid and cloud,  May 2015 {Spread Your Wings}for the books and the flowers,January 2016 {Start Again} for the hearts, camera and flowers, August 2011 {what I know} for the branch, April 2017 {Be My Bird} for the bird, branch and flowers, April 2016 {Without Fear. . . Without Limits} hearts flowers and bird. I've also included a heart punch and mini flower punch 

I haven't decided what cut files I want to include so I'll be adding that to my kit as I go, along with cardstock 

Your next stop on the hop is Julene.

Love that you zeroed in on a starting point of inspiration & built your own custom kit, a la The Wild Hare Kits idea! As always a nicely robust kit that will get used up - you go, girl!

Your kit is different and I like your choices. That huge fern has me curious, I'm dying to see you use it. Enjoy scrapping your kit.

Susan said...

That photo-realistic fern paper really caught my eye and I'm curious to see how you'll use it along with the rest of your choices. You've got a nice list of stamps, too - versatile and perfect for adding just one little thing to complete a project.
