October 2022 - Mini Kit Reveal & Projects


Just as a reminder, our inspiration kit this month is the August Cherry Box from A Cherry on Top:

Sometimes a full-on kit is overwhelming or may be too much for what you anticipate needing this month. Mini kits are a great idea! The inspiration kit might be perfect for a single simple project you've had in mind. You can create page kit(s). Perhaps your card supply has dwindled & you can use a smaller kit to replenish it. Let's see what this month's Master Forger Kate and Master Forger Laura have come up with!

October Guest Designer Nikki says:

Using cut aparts is a great way to use an entire piece of paper from a kit. It also is a simple way to use the inspiration of a kit in a different way.

Mini Project:

Master Forger Kate here and to me, this kit is perfect for spring or fall layouts/projects.  I actually kept my kit relatively small this month so I'd be inclined to use all of it.  I was primarily inspired by all the leaves and the butterflies so I started there with die cuts, laser cuts and stickers.  I then added 6 neutral papers from Simple Stories and 49th and Market and some gold vellum paper scraps.  I then rounded my mini kit out with 49th and Market washi tapes and some sewing notions for texture.


As far as my project goes, I decided to do something different. I decided to use up all these tags I had sitting around and make a tagbook of my Thursday 3 selfies! I printed out the photos, embellished the front of the tags, then write my Thursday3 thoughts on the back.


 Master Forger Laura created a beautiful mini kit!

 For my mini kit this month I started by pulling out some neutral scraps from my stash, then added in the pops of colour with the yellow, orange and green scraps. I love the vintage style of the original kit, so pulled some die cuts that I felt matched the theme.

Laura was just playing around and ended up making a rough base layout ready to use later when the perfect photo comes along!
