090121 September CKC Kit Reveal & Blog Hop


 Flea markets, plaid & back-to-school speed limits are hallmarks of September. Our Counterfeit Kit Challenge inspiration kit represents well, thanks to Master Forger of Ceremonies Tina!

{Not} Just for Boys Scrapbooking Kit Club - September 2020 Main Kit - Vivid
The "Vivid" Premium Kit reflects the vivid colors and feel of autumn.  The combination of the hues and various textures in this kit work together to become the perfect mix of supplies to document a variety of everyday moments from enjoying crisp fall evenings, to exploring the outdoors, to relaxing at home.

Here are the papers:

That first paper reminded me so much of a BasicGrey paper so I went stash diving!

Top (l-r): 2011 BasicGrey Plumeria/Grandma Jane, Diane's Daughters Rustic Gem/Jade: Paisley, 2021 Wild Whisper Ledger & Script, Stampington & Company/Somerset Memories Artists' Paper/Timeless Treasures, 2009 BasicGreg Indian Summer/Autumn Glaze, 2010 BasicGrey Sweet Threads/Summer Wedges, blue tiedye unknown, Tim Holtz.

I love the interesting mix of colors! I may have to go in search of my leaf punches & dies... just sayin'

 And as if that's not enough to play with? I went for the alternate travel-themed kit, too! I have so many travel projects in the pending pile that I'm hoping having this kit will move a few onto the shelf.

{Not} Just for Boys Scrapbooking Kit Club - "Journey the World" Deluxe Theme Kit

The "Journey the World" Deluxe Theme Kit is a unique combination of travel paper, map images, and embellishments that blend seamlessly to become the ideal kit to document all sorts of travel experiences.  These supplies lend themselves to documenting either domestic or international travel, and have an "old world", rustic feel.
