October Counterfeit Kit

We're past the midway mark of October, and I finally got my Counterfeit Kit together!  Here's the inspiration kit from Gossamer Blue:
When I'm making my kit, I always look to see if I have any of the exact papers from the original.  In this case, I had two - the Echo Park Everyday Eclectic woodgrain chevron (with a small strip missing!) and an almost full sheet of the journaling cards.  From there, I look at colours and/or patterns and see if I can come close.  And this is what I ended up with:


I've got some cardstock in the back row, then the two EP papers, followed by all Basic Grey, the first from Paper Cottage and the rest from PB & J.  I've also got some Spellbinders dies to make labels, and some labels I had previously printed to use in my SMASH books.  I only had one resin flower, so I added some shaped buttons that might be handy for embellishment clusters, and some half-used packs of alphas (Thickers, Stickopotamous, and Making Memories).  And finally, some chevron washi (Queen & Co.), a chevron stamp, some coordinating ribbon, and a package of sheer label shapes that I won as a prize and haven't used - hope I can figure out a way to utilize them this month.

Oh, and the best part of all is I am now the proud owner of a Silhouette Cameo!!!  I've been playing already and I'm so excited to see how I can use this tool to get some layouts and cards done this month!  Stay tuned!!!

  4. some day.... I might try this challenge. Since I've had to reorganize my scrap space in the move, I am realizing how much extra stuff I actually have. Your kit looks great (:

  5. Looks like a great kit. Can't wait to see what you do with it!
    I like the idea of creating kits but don't use them. I even took May Flaum's Kitastic workshop at Big Picture Classes and made a kit up ahead of time to use during the class ... but it's still sitting there pretty much unused. I did pinch the odd thing out of it for other projects! Don't think that really counts though!!
