September 2019 - Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog hop and kit reveal

Happy September everyone! 

I love the start of a new month and September is the beginning of my favourite time of the year. This is the point where I start using my #watchmesmile and I swear I smile every day from now until the end of the year!

For September, I wanted to try something a little different and approached the lovely Khristina Sorge from the Secret Not Secret Kit Club (you can find details about her club online here). 

Khristina has been offering curated, personalised kits for some time now and I knew that this would be a great change to our usual approach for a month when I was organising the kit.

I was delighted that she was on board right away and has actually created a unique, personalised kit JUST FOR US! 

I'm so excited to share this with you today for your own inspiration using your own products. :-) 

Here's the kit she's curated for us:

I love the fact that it's totally different to the kits we've had recently and I requested that it included some travel motifs because a) you know that I love travel themed stuff! and b) I think that this is the time of year when we can look back on summer adventures and start to record those memories if we haven't already. 

The colour scheme is refreshing too after all the bright shades we've included recently and for those of you who like to make more masculine pages, this might be a good section for you too! 

I think there's something here for everyone :-) 

Khristina has also kindly given us a full list of kit contents so you can see exactly what's in this personalised Secret Not Secret Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit. I hope you find it useful when pulling together your own kit. You can take a look at most of the individual elements HERE

Of course, we also needed a Guest Designer for September and who better than Khristina herself :-) 

"Hi friends! I am Khristina and I live in Arizona with my husband and three adventurous kiddos. We love to travel and have both big and small adventures! This summer, we even took them on a family version of The Amazing Race! I am also the kit curator/owner of The Secret Not Secret Kit Club as well as the new Kreative Cuts Club. We focus on customizable kits designed to fit your unique style, budget, and needs! We host monthly parties, in-person retreats, and online classes while focusing on encouraging friends to just create even if it’s only for fifteen minutes a day. I also create for several design teams and am so super excited to be joining your fun group for my birthday month!" 

Now that I've piqued your interest with our wonderful kit and delightful Guest Designer, it's time to get hopping. Here's the full list for you:

And of course, don't forget that we'll be back throughout the month to give you some tips, ideas 
and challenges as you put together and use your kit.  

Here's what we have coming up this month:
  • September 2nd: I'll be back with a "Just the Gist" post to help jump-start your kit-making.
  • September 4th:  We'll have our "Forgery on the Fourth" post where the Master Forgers will reveal how they created their own version of some of the items in this month's kit.
  • September 6th:  We'll reveal a couple of mini-kits and projects, in case you're a little limited for time this month and would prefer a more petite kit.
  • September 12th & 18th:  We'll give you two challenges to help you use the kit you've made.
  • September 24th:  I'll be showcasing one of the CKC community who's caught my eye this month
  • September 30th: We'll be offering another installment in our {Killing Kits} series to help you find ways to use up all of your kit.

We always love to see your work, so please share your kits and projects with us.
You can use our Monthly Link-up page, post them in our Facebook Community, or share them on Instagram (we are @counterfeitkitchallenge or tag us using #counterfeitkitchallenge and #ckcseptember2019).

Thanks so much for stopping by! We can't wait to see your kits and projects this month!
