November Inspiration Kit Reveal

Welcome to our 11th month of Counterfeiting!!!  We just wanted to remind everyone that this month's sponsor (and inspiration kit) is Scraptastic Club.  They are giving away a $20 gift certificate to this month's winner!  For more details, see this post.

This Month's Inspiration Kit... 
The November 201 Inspiration Kits are 2 current kits, just released from Scraptastic Club. 


You can view the November 2011 inspiration kits (and the lists of contents) from Scraptastic Club hereThere are two kits to choose from, feel free to counterfeit either of the kits.  If you want to do both of them, that's great too! 

Sneak Peek "Home Sweet Home" Kit by Scraptastic Club

Sneak Peek "Autumn Splendor" kit by Scraptastic Club.

What's the next step???

The CHALLENGE is to use this kit for inspiration. How, you ask? Well, there are many ways to go about this. Here are a few ideas...
  • Try and match every piece in the kit as close as possible to something from your supply stash.
  • Use the "kit contents" as inspiration, and recreate your own kit with the same types of supplies, but in a different color or style that corresponds better with your preferences/photographs/scrapbook style/tastes.
  • Make an even smaller "page kit" or "card kit"..."counterfeiting" just a few items from this month's kit as inspiration. 
  • Using the color scheme from the kits as inspiration, try to re-create a kit of your own using whatever supplies you have available.
What's to come?...
  • Tomorrow we will post pictures of the inspired Counterfeit Kits we put together from our stash of supplies.  The link for you to share pictures of your Counterfeit Kits with each other is here
  • Over the next week, we will add links to tutorials for counterfeiting many of the embellishments in this month's inspiration Kit's.
  • Over the next month, we will post mini challenges to USE your new kit, as well as organize a blog hop to share your creations! 
  • We hope you all find some inspiration in the kit club we choose this month!!!  If you aren't sure where to begin, check out the "Hints and Tips" page of our blog for some help.  Feel free to leave a comment, questions, or any suggestions!!!  We look forward to hearing from you.
