So hopefully you are here for the Countefeit Kit Challenge reveal blog hop and if you have come from the first part of my Lesley/Leslie sandwich, Lesley's blog, welcome, welcome. If you've landed here directly, you can get back to the beginning of the hop back at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog here.
This month, we were given a choice of kits from the lovely Citrus Twist kits and could select one of the July kits for inspiration. There were several lovely collections there but I decided to do something a bit different this time around.
Rather than doing my usual of really matching up item by item, I went for an overall inspiration instead.
I loved the look of these two kits:
It's HUGE and full to the gills of loads of bits and pieces but I have so really old photos and trips I'd like to scrap that I think I can make it go a long way. And it will test those themed items that I don't use so often. If they are still in the kit at the end of the month rather than on pages, that could be a sign that they are past their day. My niece will be happy!
Here's my September kit, Passport:
I started off with papers. Three map designs (I just can't resist maps) and a few more themed papers that I have had in my stash for literally years so let's see if I can find a way to use them. I've included a few colours that I don't usually use so often on my trip pages but that should help me with the versatility of the kit.
I did try and match up some of the types of items from the inspiration kits but really, I just went through my stash and picked out items I liked. And nothing from my more recent purchases.
Lots of alphas to use up, some pins, some veneers, some themed travel stickers
The tapes here are relatively new but I liked the look of them with the other products. Some journalling cards, some die cuts from October Afternoon's first travel collection.
The 6x6 SC pad is new - relatively - but I just thought it might work with the rest of the products and it also brings in some new colours for more flexibility.
I also added in all my scraps from the MM Passport collection (which inspired the name for my kit) and then just added in a few more items just for fun!
If you've got this far, thanks and make sure you leave me a comment. I love to see who's dropped by.
And than you can head off in the direction of my top slice of the sandwich, Leslie S. She is bound to have something gorgeous to inspire you and get you kitting :-)
