October 2022 - Counterfeit Kit Reveal & Blog Hop

Project link HERE

Master Forger of Ceremonies Leslie is welcoming the Autumn season here in the Northern Hemisphere, and at the same time jealous of the blooming of Spring in the Southern!

Before we take a look at our October inspiration kit, let's meet our Guest Designer, Nikki Ihus!

(Don't you love those colorful stairs?)

My name is Nikki and I am known as Nikki's Scrapbooking Adventures on YouTube and Instagram. I focus on creating layouts (12 x 12 and 8 x 8), kits and sharing techniques on my channels all while enjoying the wonderful world of scrapbooking. I have a son, 16 months, and a husband who are my main inspiration for scrapbooking. 
Welcome, Nikki!

This month we are dipping into a different type of kit, The August Cherry Box from A Cherry on Top! 
 "A subscription box delivering paper crafting goodness right to your doorstep every month! Inside you’ll find paper crafting supplies hand-picked just for you from our ACOT team. Different brands and mediums are featured, giving you a wide variety of products to try. For example, a box may include 12"x12" patterned paper, embellishments, adhesive, mixed media, and more. It will be a surprise you'll love!"
The August kit is full of beautiful 49 & Market products, including a wide fabric washi tape, a stamp set, a mini Distress Ink in a vintage tone, washi-style stickers plus a full sheet washi, chipboard stickers, epoxy stickers, 2 sheets of laser cut embellishments, plus Golden Dream, Essence, Savor & Zealous double-sided patterned papers plus dark green & creamy white Bazzill cardstock.
I am a monthly subscriber of The Cherry Box & could not have been more thrilled to get this box of goodies! The beauty of the 49 & Market collections is that they can be used very simply, as is, to create a complex layered look with minimal effort. This provides an opportunity for YOU to do some of your own mixed media work in making your counterfeit kit! 

Now, here is our full hop list in case you get lost along the way:

And of course, as always, we have a full month of inspiration to keep you inspired!
