This month's inspiration kit/s are September/October 2010 kits from Little Red Scrapbook (you can see the kits here).
There's a simply stunning, pretty kit which jumped right out at me and shouted "Make me!" and we were also given a wonderfully cute Halloween themed kit which I couldn't resist either.
So I made two kits... it's not as if I don't have enough stuff to put in them after all!
I selected a whole selection of soft colours and papers for my first kit which I have named "Fall in Love" which is of course a play on words because, as you all know, I LOVE autumn.
I like the fact that this autumn kit isn't full of those browns and yellows because I use those all the time anyway. I added in a lot more embellishments and alphas than the original kit, but you knew that I would, didn't you? This might be a challenging kit to make any masculine layouts from, but I feel I'm up to that challenge and it's great to see some golden oldies in here from my seemingly never ending BG collection!
And then I made up a smaller kit of Halloween stash inspired by the selection of items in the original kit. I decided to put in my Cosmo papers, mixed in with some BG alphas and a lot of themed embellishments. Halloween isn't such a big celebration round here but we do get dressed up and have some fun, so there are layouts to be done each year. I figured, if I had a kit ready to go and the incentive of using it up for the Counterfeit challenges, I might get a few old photos down on pages. I have included a lot of felt scraps, inspired by the cutest banner in the inspiration kit. I'm definitely going to be making that to use!
I decided to give it a German name, "Schrecklich" which means "ghastly" but somehow sounds much cooler!
