Have stash, will kit

October is well and truly here and with it comes a new Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit which is extra exciting this month as I start my time with them as part of their design team - I'm officially a Master Forger!

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!

  1. I like your Fall in Love kit looks really good

  2. Oh I really can't wait to see what you come up with

  3. Love these kits.

    Schrecklich is a word I often use in my head - always love the sound it makes, I don't think I say it out loud though, but I might try to drop it into conversation soon.

  4. Ah, Lisa! You know I'm always in love with your kits - and I'm especially in awe of how much cardstock you include. Good luck with your Counterfeiting and Loading this month x

  5. Brilliant name for a Halloween kit! I was just thinking about how my kids are too big to dress up now. But looking at your kit has made me think about going back and looking for old pictures to do something with!
