My September Kit
To see September's Counterfeit Kit Challenge, find all the info here. The inspiration kit is the September 2010 kit from Sweet Peach Crop Shop.
And here's my take on the kit:
I liked the blues and greens in the inspiration kit. I was reminded of an old My Minds Eye (everyday tango) stack that has been kicking around (haha - tango.....kicking.....haha) my stash for several years. I used a lot of the papers for a vacation album several years ago, but as often happens with stacks, it hardly looks like I put a dent in it. So many of the papers will work this month, and I hope to use up as much as I can. I even have a plan for card making with this kit, if I can get around to it!
I also included some other papers to work with this month - some Basic Grey, American Crafts, GCD Studios (I am loving grid paper as backgrounds right now), and cardstock (DCWV and Core'dinations).
I have a few embellishments pulled out for my kit - some rub-on stitching, some fall/themed metal pieces, and some ribbon. But mostly I'm going to rely on making embellishments and alphabet sets with my kit contents this month. I'm looking forward to some stamping challenges, and I have big plans for some foam to counterfeit the Thickers in the inspiration kit.
