October 2021 - Counterfeit Kit Reveal and Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the October Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop. I, Tracey Campbell , am your host for the month and am looking forward to seeing how you all pull your kits and how you use it for the challenges. The Kit I have picked for October is the May Hip Kit Club kit - it is full of beautiful bright spring colours. There are tags, labels, stickers and fun ephemera die cuts that are all singing out to be forged and scrapped.

What really called my name in this kit is the American Craft Paper "Let's Go" from the Buenos Dias collection, the fun colourful world map has me wanting to reach for some of my many travel photos, it made picking this kit very, very easy. (It is the paper at the front of the paper pack below).

There is a choice from the Main Kit, the Pocket Life Kit or just an Embellishment Kit. Then there are extra bonus kits of the Colour (mixed media), Paper (only) or matching Cardstock Kit. To help expand the kit further, so lots and lots to look at and to use as inspiration for your kit.

We are delighted to have the lovely Machelle Welling join us this month as our Guest Designer.

Hello!  My name is Machelle & I am excited to be the guest designer for Counterfeit Kit Challenge this month.  I love all things crafty, but mainly I scrapbook and make cards.  Since I have been scrapbooking for over 20 years I have quite a stash of supplies, especially paper.  I love playing along with the Counterfeit Kit Challenge as it inspires me to use what I have and make new combinations I wouldn’t have thought of myself.  I am looking forward to the challenges and seeing how everyone interprets the inspiration kit for October!

Now what you are all waiting for, the Master List for the Blog Hop. This post is the first on the list and each wonderful Challenge Team Member will have their kit on their blogs for some eye candy inspiration for you. Just follow the list and work your way through to see what the team has come up with.
