It's new counterfeit kit time...



It's come round again, time to raid my stash (slowly being sorted and arranged for maximum accessibility) and put together a kit for this month.

From Sweet Peach in September 2010, there were two to choose from - a blue one, based round Sassafras Indie Girl, and a Juicy one - with more autumnal colours.

As I had some remainders from the couple of sheets of Indie Girl I bought, and some of a sticker sheet, I went with the blue one as my main kit. I didn't have any letters in a similar colour, and I cut down the number of papers from last month when I went a bit mad!

Citrus lace, some coordinating ribbon, K&Co paper lace, some Crate paper brads, some french khaki button brads, and a pink MM houndstooth brad, plus some metal ribbon slides from ancient stash, Imaginisce metal flowers, and some leftover Jenni Bowlin pearl flowers and a few chipboard accessories made up my embellishment kit. I added letter stickers by Sassafras and Echo Park and a few extra scraps of paper.




Banners will have to be hand crafted and I'm definitely going to have a go at the flower tutorial.

Papers: kraft, peacock blue, cream cardstock, cream and green coredinations cardstock, part sheets from Indie Girl, October Afternoon Five & Dime, WRMK die cut sheet, MME Lost & Found, SEI and Echo Park - sorry not very good at which ranges they are from!


I also made up a page kit, based more on my subjective interpretation of the Juicy Kit, which I am also really pleased with - I've had the burlap stuff for ages and now I'm going to really try to use it! Can't wait to get started now.

i adore all those gorgeous blues in your kit - and the citrus lace is really lovely. i'm quite envious that you have the Indie Girl Affection paper - I would have loved to have been able to include that in mine! looking forward to seeing banners and flowers - you can never go wrong with sweet banners :-) Great job

I really like those rolled flowers in your kit. I am going to try to make some of them for my Sweet kit.

Oooohhh.....LOVE all the blues in your kit! My eye was definitely drawn to the blues in the inspiration kit, too.

I love your take on the kits. I had the banners, but not the papers for my kit. But I picked some I really like and I'm excited to play this month!

Great kit, Ali! I love your mix of supplies-you have put together some really great items! I can't wait to see your banners. They are one of my favorite embellies. I didn't have any for my kit, either, so I will be making some, too. Looking forward to your projects this month!
