my scrapbook pages and thoughts

November 1

November means lots of excitement in the air, crisp days, glorious colours, but darker cooler evenings as well, a perfect time to curl up and get your scrap on!
This month at Counterfeit Kit Challenge they have chosen Jenni Bowlin’s October kits to counterfeit. There are a few different ones on the site, I have chosen this one, the papercrafting kit.

and this is my counterfeit of it. I still don’t have navy blue, so instead I chose general colour, and design. If there were stripes, I chose stripes, and I chose papers with faux stitching to add to the feel.

It is a large kit, but I quite enjoy that. I copied the acetate items and the bird, and the speech bubbles, from the top left corner.


I copied the pie chart, and stamped tags from the bottom right

I also copied the owl, and the flowers, but instead of using all chipboard flowers, I used some prima ones! This is great for me since I tend to not use them. I don’t know why, I like them, I just find them hard to use, so this was a great chance to try. I also made my own version of the white heart paper which I will give you more detail on later.

So as Jenni herself said, “its a big one” but its packed full of goodies and fun things to try.
Try going through your stash and playing along. Check out the Counterfeit kit Challenge site for inspiration and be sure to follow along on the blog hop! Next up is Angela and you know she has some great ideas to share!

  14. I love your take on the CKC this month. I haven’t played along with this in about a year. 😦 I’ve been scrapping, just not playing along-life got in the way…hubby stationed overseas for a year while I was at home with 4 of the 5 of our kids was the biggest deterrent. LOL. I’d like to get back to it, maybe this month. πŸ˜‰

    I love all your varied patterned papers! Great kit
