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.
