November 2018 kit first half for CKC blog

Seasonal Nature Traveling Sojourn kit

pic one for first half of kit:

Are you ready for more non-traditional colors and patterns for November? There are no turkeys or feathers to be found in this kit (unless you want them). There are also no Pilgrim hats. No corn on the cob. No Mayflower ship. So what's in the inspiration based kit by Citrus Twist from October 2018 that is being used by the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog?

Good question! Imagine stars, hearts, rainbows, clouds, butterflies, leafy branches, flowers, and a few cameras, pandas, foxes, and rabbits for the design motifs!!! YES!!! Add in periwinkle blue, blueberry, inky indigos, thistle, lavender, lemon, peach, coral, pink, and turquoise for most of the color palette!!! EXCITING!! SHOCKING!!!

      More parts of my Seasonal Nature Traveling Sojourn kit for November:

      This photo has papers left from my October kit that are now being rolled over to November. I want to get items made with old inventory, so that I can have extreme limited money spent each month or two just for adhesives and/or seasonal embellishments. Three papers on the left side of the above photo were used this afternoon to make a birthday card for a great niece. Her card post was already published. And 3 papers from the right side of the above photo were used this afternoon to make a birthday card for my best friend's son. His card post was also already published.

      mostly solid color partial sheets or scraps

      another butterfly print paper and 2 prints that coordinate to each other that has the purples, pinks, greens, and blues found in the inspirational kit; the papers in the below photo are a color-departure from those already shown but because there is this large butterfly print with 3 coordinates I decided to include

      There are 3 parts for this first half of the kit reveal: butterflies with coordinating papers, plain cardstocks or papers (primarily solid colors), and leftovers from October's All About Autumn kit. Most of the solid color papers are scraps or partial sheets.  There's a partial sheet of a text print paper including with those solid colors.

      I'll be adding more text designer sheets in 2nd half kit reveal tomorrow. That half will have stars, hearts, and travel theme papers and embellishments.  And rainbows!!! [I've got way too much old inventory that luckily survived storage for previous 2+ years and that's long overdue to be used since they are 5-10 years old!!!]

      Reminder photos of the rainbow spectrum forgeries I made 2-3 days ago. The base papers used for these counterfeits are not quite 1 year old but as we scrappers and paper-crafters know all too well, better get something used when you think about it:

      A couple of hours ago I took 3 of the thank you banner images (from the photo just above) to make into focal tags of 3 mauve pink square based cards. Those will be featured on my next post, so stay tuned.
