This is exciting news! Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog asked me to be their Guest Designer for October 2018. Wow! I'm so blessed!
My October kit has been titled as "All About Autumn" filled with unexpected twists like unusual color combos (add aqua, turquoise, and seafoam blues to yellows, oranges, and greens) and accents of metallic gold.
**if you came from a master forger's blog or the CKC blog, THANKS! the blog hop list is at the bottom for you to use to get to the next MF after seeing my massive kit:
Above: the full super ambitious kit with the embellishments clustered in the front center section
Some of the papers are no longer in their packaging or aren't stamped on the back but I do know there's a section from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby), Hot Off the Press (Paper Wishes), Colorbok, and solids are either Georgia-Pacific for white or Astrobrights for pastels, neon, and bolds (Neenah Papers).
Below: just the papers, some 12" squares, some 8.5" x 11", some 6" squares, some scraps, some ATC or slightly larger, and some 4" x 5" tablet sizes; colors range in turquoise and teal blues to seafoam/minty greens, browns, golds, pinks, greens, yellows, and some peach tones with a few raspberry and gray; patterns range from floral, wavy lines, chevrons, dots, etc.
Below: the "bits and bobs" include: plastic bits in red, pale pink, blue, black, gray, and smoky white; gold gems; some leftover leaf stickers, gold alphas, gold tulle, twine, burlap, yellow cording, green masking tape, orange masking tape, gold glitter tape, and 7 micro-thin decorative tapes in assortment of colors and patterns; burlap leaves; silk leaf assortment; gold napkins; Give Thanks text napkins; a few leftover pieces not used in September; and at least 3 stencils I'd liked to use in October: paisley tear drop, oak leaf, and a leafy branch.
I've got cording in grass green and orange and 2-tone browns that I didn't pull that might get used. I've also got ribbons in different colors and fibers, too. And I will probably need more solid color cardstock than what is seen at the top of the photos.

October's Autumn fun continues with an amazing blog hop starting today, October 1, 2018!
October 1 - Full Kit Reveal + Blog Hop –
Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog - http://
Guest Designer Becca Sadler - https://beccasheartland.
Julene - https://julenebydesign.
Please take time to visit the design team (the master forgers) members' individual blogs to get more details that might not be mentioned on the CKC blog post for the reveal. And you will also see how each has interpreted the colors and prints found in the original WH kit to be copied from their own old stashes. Leave them some blog love, too!
I'll be showing my forgeries on October 4th. Be sure to come back to read that post and see what caught my creative 'eye' to copy-cat!
What an incredible kit Becca!!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Maxine! I think tomorrow I'm going to sort the papers by either colors or patterns and take more pics. There are so many that they get lost. And I need to start creating layouts or tags and/or cards with this gigantic kit. See part two tomorrow.Delete
Wow, Becca! What a massive kit filled with so many fun things to play with! You've got a great mix of colors and embellishments and I can't wait to see what you create with it! I am so happy that you started playing along with us at Counterfeit Kit Challenge and congrats on being our guest designer this month!ReplyDelete
Appreciate the support, Lori, and I can't wait to break this kit down and get some paper-crafting accomplished with this!Delete
Awesome kit Becca love seeing all the variety of blues together with the autumn colors and love seeing the mix of patterns you used too :) Fun bits and bobs you got in there too :) I look forward to seeing your creations :) So glad to have you creating with us this month as GuestMF tooReplyDelete
Thanks, Tina! The past few days I feel like a kid on Christmas morning! So many possibilities as I sort out colors, patterns, and moods as I evaluate the papers once again. I've been such a craft hoarder on my old stock and this has been a terrific motivator to get busy using it!Delete
I love how it looks like your lovely kit blew in on the Autumn wind! You are going to have an even better time this month than last :D So happy to have you here on the Design Team this month.ReplyDelete
Leslie: thanks so much for the invite to be GD! I'm so excited about how I can use these to make a dent in my craft zone!Delete
Wow! This is a big kit and will keep you busy for hours,days,weeks! I like that you can use more of your older stuff. Welcome to CKC.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Julene for stopping by! I re-organized the papers and took new photos and have a 2nd post to show those. Click on newer post below the comments to take you there. This kit is huge but it's like a crafting Christmas Day.Delete
Beautiful kit, with lots of variety for scrapping this month. Looking forward to your projects.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Cindy, for taking time to comment. I've got a 2nd post showing a better organization of the kit papers if you have time to look at it.Delete
Wowzers, now that is a kit...so much FUN stuff! And yes, it has me thinking AUTUMN...so much so I want to jump into that pile of leaves, LOLReplyDelete
Doreen, The original kit had me stumped at first but I started looking at some of the patterns as quilts. Then I saw lots of yellows, greens, and oranges plus all those wood elements and gold accents. Those things made me realize, yes, we can do autumn creations with our copy-cat kits!ReplyDelete
This is a great interpretation on the original kit and shows how differently we see the inspiration! Great job and although I think your kit is even bigger than my big kits, it looks like you are ready to jump in and get crafty! Good luck with making a huge dent in your stash. Thanks for being our GD this month :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Lisa! Yes, overjoyed I am to be GD and to use up lots of old papers and stickers. My mini kit altered file folder project used up 7-10 full sheets and left scraps/partials of another 3 or 4 maybe. So I'm thrilled so far with how much got completed this week!Delete
Happy to have you with us this month! What a nice, full kit and I like how you included pinks, purples and brighter blues - they aren't typical for fall but I think they'll fit in well with autumn scrapping.ReplyDelete
Susan: thanks for stopping by!! I was trying to avoid purple but with the Wild Hare curated kit having soft pinks plus the deeper magenta pink in the peonies paper, I though having a few papers with purple would be okay. The deeper blues/teals don't get as dark as pine green but I like having a color value range in my arsenal! :)Delete
