The kit(s)-to-copy are Jenni Bowlin's offerings for October and, if I'm totally honest, I wasn't blown away by them. Not my style as I don't really do floral :-(
Furthermore I was itching to use some new scrapbook supplies, having just celebrated a medium birthday (ending in a 5) by splurging for the first time this year! So this month I decided to counterfeit with new stash using some of the original kit's colours and patterns as a starting point:
Starting with the 3 papers on the top row, I found an orange diagonal, a blue dot and a grey chevron from Simple Stories Urban Traveller's Basics Kit; the next row of papers in the original were counterfeited with papers using a grey grid, blue hexagons, a red dotty (did I mention that I struggle with florals?), a cream ledger and multi-coloured circles, all from three 6x6 pads (Studio Calico Snippets and Simple Stories 24/Seven and Urban Traveller).
I added a couple of other sheets from the pads to pad (!) out the papers and chose a selection of 3x4 cards from the Urban Traveller & 24/Seven collections. A couple of alphas, a roll of washi, some acetates, flair buttons and die-cuts later my kit was nearly ready.
I had a quick look at the embellies in the Jenni Bowlin add-on kits and loved the sparkly buttons in the Artisan Add-On ... and made my own!

I'm really excited to get started with my new goodies - I'll be back with details of button experiments in a few days. In the meantime please hop over to Julene to see whether she's used old stash or new stash in her counterfeiting.
