November Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop - Oh Boo!

 Welcome to the November Counterfeit Kit Challenge November Blog Hop.  Can you believe how fast this year is flying by? I wil have the full blog hop at the bottom of the post for you. 

 Lisa is the Master Forger of Ceremonies this month, she says, "I wanted to find a different kit - something that can take us in different direction depending on where we are and how we fell about this time of year - you know that this is my FAVORITE time of year and I think it has the right hint of autumn for me! Hope you find something in here to inspire. Ad of course I love that it's a European Kit and a mix of products that you might possibly have rather than just exclusives (saying that I think I might have a single sheet of paper!). Anyway, it's bright and funky and can be taken in different ways to please enjoy!

But first we would like to welcome Machelle as our Guest Designer of the month.  We are all excited to have her on board, you can find her here - Porch Ramblings – Small Town Scrap.

Her is my November Counterfeit Kit  - Away We Go.

I have several sheets of Echo Park Capture Life that reminded me of the inspiration kit, so I thought I would start with them.

 The blues and photo paper have the same feels as the inspiration kit and I put in a couple of pieces of chipboard hearts and a chipboard tree. I have a few playground pictures of Mr. D. to scrap. .

From there I went with a few page kits, hoping to jump start my scrapbooking. So here is page kit #1:

I pulled a few scraps together that I thought would look good for a fall theme layout. I really like the orange and white polka dot in the inspiration kit. I was unable to locate a polka dot or even a gingham paper (I'm sure it's still in a box I have not unpacked yet) so here is a substitute for it.  If I run across it I will be adding it to my kit.

Page Kit #2: 

Here I've included map paper like the Inspiration Kit. I also included a woodgrain paper, and a few embellishments. the stamp set will be showing up again, but it's here for the October Story that I hoping to use on this layout. 

Page Set #3:

I know it doesn't look like much, but this is another page set that I have a specific layout in mind. I needed a little bit of red for it and chose the camera paper, I couldn't find a scrap that I liked (probably in a box). The papers are from the Capture Life papers as well.  I will be using my dies for the embellishments on this layout - the flowers, birds, and leaves I have left over from other kits. .

Then I included 3 of the Stories of the Month by Ali Edwards. 

I'm several months behind, these have not seen the light of day until I took this picture. 

I have August, October and November. September is missing in action. If I find it I may include it also. I really do not know where it is hiding. 

Well, that is my kit. I will be adding in cardstock, enamel dots, and sequins, I know I have a couple of balloon stamps that I cannot locate (which box), and a couple of dies. Oh, I forgot paint for the Chipboard - just realized I didn't pull any.

Interesting kit Cindy. Another different direction. (I think we all went off in different ways :) Enjoy yourself!

Machelle@smalltownscrap said...

I love your kits! I especially like the blues in the first one & I forgot I had that black & white picture viewer paper. I may have to use that on something this month. Love seeing everyone's kits as it definitely gives me new ideas.

Tara O said...

Is it actually possible your kit is larger than mine????? ;) Great kit. I love that you made page kits too!! I should have grabbed one of the many Story Kits I have unopened in my stash and added it too. Oh well.

Susanne said...

Oh my word, I think we may have ended up with some of the same old 3 x 4 cards in our kits. I didn't remember they are Capture Life as I recently came into some of that paper too. How funny! I love all the extra goodies in your kit, should be lots of fun to create with it.

Love the various page kits. Boy I feel you about the MIA products! I've got a few of those myself.
