10/01/18 - 10/31/18

Create a kit from your stash.
Use your kit to create projects for this challenge.
The general idea is to use ONLY what's in your kit...
This will get you HOPEFULLY using up your stash and DEFINITELY thinking outside the box!

I created 7 layouts from my August Counterfeit Kit and 6 From my September Counterfeit Kit (I blame being on vacation the last week of September for not doing more!)
So yes, creating w/ limited supplies can be done!

As an added bit of fun:
If you want to play along w/ the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog , stay tuned for the kit inspiration that I will post here (soon)...

Also I will share w/ you their 2 monthly challenges to help motivate you use that kit you created.
Again this is just a bit of bonus fun, not something you have to do in order to play along w/ this thread.

The challenge may seem overwhelming but it's actually really easy!
Feel free to ask questions any time!

Great kit CJ! Our process is very similar. I always think it's so interesting the way we all see things uniquely. When I looked at the kit, I saw brown, orange and green. I had a couple of pieces of MME On Trend 2 in my kit from last month, which is now my focus line. The inspiration piece, also did not contain any cardstock, which I absolutely can not scrapbook without! Lol!

I'm helping my sister move for the next few days so probably won't get kit posted until weekend.

I have this mental goal of catching up on past TNs that I started while still "keeping up" as time goes along. I think my success rate is currently around 35%

Hi ladies!

I created a kit but I don't like it, LOL

I'm super stressed out these days and it's killing my brain cells so I am having trouble putting a kit together...ugh!
I may have to sit this one out, IDK...haven't decided yet.
In the meantime though, please keep creating and sharing!

There is a challenge up at the Counterfeit Blog so I am posting it here as well...
It is a sketch and mood board:

Going to try to put my kit together tonight! It's on my list at the top, as in high priority for me, but maybe not my family who'd like me to cook, do laundry, etc.

Beautiful mood board. I like my kit just haven't found any time to create yet!

Come on Doreena, take a few deep breaths, pull out your favorite things in kit and then swap out those you dont!! It won't be the same without you!!

Good grief! "Wild Hare" is right. I'm having a hard time detecting anything resembling a colour scheme for the October kit: no wonder you're struggling, Doreena.

I might have to wuss on this month's challenge too, and not just because I find the example kit confusing. My mojo's been dead in the water for weeks and I'm beginning to think I may need a change of direction. It's snowing like crazy out today so, maybe it's a good day to start getting my Dec album prep'd.

You know what?
I'm forgetting my own rule to this challenge - DOH!
You don't HAVE to use that kit as inspiration...
you can put together ANY kind of kit you'd like.
The point is, just make sure to use only items from your kit to create w/...
Remembering that, I may be able to play after all...
I just won't be participating w/ the blog this month.

Does that help you also?

I have been checking out this challenge and hope you will have it again next month. I think I will join in as I am finding "kits" to be a way to relieve some of the stress of decision making when there are not so many choices.
I don't have it in me to get a kit together this month...

Here's my kit (finally). I took the inspiration mostly from the types of patterned paper that were in the kit: chevron, bold stripes, geometrics, small prints, etc. I added in solid cardstock, buttons, ribbon, & fiber since those are essentials for me. I also put in card blanks.

I would LOVE to do this... but I know I will probably have to wait until summer when I actually have larger chunks of time to scrap! I like to follow along though so that once I do play I can do my kit right! When I put my kit together for AGC... I go TOTALLY overboard... I tend to forget that I CAN scrap without the kit it just wouldn't count for the weekly points... so I would have to keep that in mind here too... if I was so inclined I could scrap outside the kit... it just wouldn't count for the challenge! - such an over thinker!
