October Counterfeit Kit

This month over at the Counterfeit kit challenge blog  we are being inspired by this dreamy fall inspiration piece.

 Case File 365 link here

I really love the soft colors, the slightly retro feel of the water color image. Makes me want to print and scrap all those fall photos!  The list of "evidence"  was so very helpful in choosing my accessories.   I intend to use this kit for general fall layout. Pumpkin patch, pumpkins, fall outings and maybe even some Thanksgiving.  I tried to go with a slightly more modern but retro feel rather than aged or shabby in most cases. I also tried to keep a soft overall feeling.  

I am calling this kit "Autumn Rambles"

This is the cardstock and papers I chose.  I went for mostly oranges, tans, creams and yellows, with blue and green and grey as accent colors. I have some really old paper here with some newish papers as well.

As always I may have gone overboard on the embellishment  and I always reserve the right to add more :D  I love having a lot to choose from. some very traditional fall items here as well as things that just match the feel to me.  I have some golds and bronzes as well.

and my Many alphabets.  I never now what I want to use and many of my alphas have been used so I choose many in hopes that I will have enough of something for a title. lol

I feel so inspired by these supplies. Need to go choose some photos and print them so I can play when inspiration hits!


  1. Fantastic kit Dawn and so great that you can use older papers and half finished alphas.That's what CKC is all about.

  2. Your kit looks very bountiful for fall, and I love the name you've chosen. Very apropos! And I recognize several of the older pieces of papers shown there - how nice it will be that they are used.

  3. This is very pretty Dawn! I really like that you mixed old and new papers - it's fun when you find something old that is a great match to new product. That paper in the upper right with the branches is lovely. I like your philosophy on embellishments too. It's always good to have options right?

  4. Love this kit Dawn and the name suits it well :) a counterfeiter after my own heart :) Love seeing the large embellishment choices and I totally agree with you on the right to add more ;) it is about using our stash :) I'm excited to see what you create fro your bounty of Autumn goodness :)

  5. Such a beautiful, bountiful kit that's perfect for autumn. I love the mix of old and new, they work perfectly as a combination.

  6. Love your kit, especially all the embellishments! Perfect fall color scheme.

  7. Such a pretty kit. Love the mix of papers you have. Looking forward to your projects.

  8. Lovely, and you can NE-VER have too many embellis in your kit! Hope to see your name pop up a lot this month on the Linky :) Thanks for joining in at CKC this month.

  9. Adding in embellishments and then adding in some more is the name of the game for me! I like the colours of your kit and how true to the original inspiration picture yours is. I hope it inspires you to create and create!
