A {C}old Case

Welcome to the October Counterfeit Kit Blog Hop - if you arrived here from Clair via our guest designer Tina, then you'll know that we're shaking things up this month by creating Counterfeit Kits Identi-kits using a {c}old Case File #S365-9 from the parnership between Colour Stories Inspiration Blog and the now deceased Scrap365 (I miss that magazine)!

October Counterfeit Kit Inspiration - CSI Case File #S365-9

The Scheme: I started looking through my papers to see what might match the colours and found a pair of papers in pale green and orange as well as a sheet with ecru/grey on one side and yellow on the other.  All colours found, I raided some 6x6 pads and my scraps bags for extra patterns. Matching mini-alphas should help me with the clues!

The Evidence: Leafy washi, metal brads, coloured string and bakers twine add to the picture along with some wood veneer stars and buttons to scatter around.  Those heart-shaped enamel shapes help support the case.

There's still some Case File Testimony for use during the month ... which should help me solve the huge pile of photos that I still have to scrap!

Now you need to pop over to Julene and see what supplies she has managed to unearth!  If the trail goes cold, you can always pop back to the incident room here and work out where to take the next step.

Very pretty kit, Jemma. There is a gentle simplicity to the patterns you've chosen. It should be a good kit to work with.

Clair said...

You have such a beautiful kit to work with this month! I love it! I'm also a little envious of your clever way with words and was smiling a lot while reading your 'statement' x

Susan said...

This is really beautiful! You replicated the color scheme so well and your addition of blue really brightens up your kit. I love all the washi tapes too.

Tina Campbell said...

What a fun paragraph to start of your kit well executed cold case file :) Love your choices and it'll be fun to see them put to use with those photos :)

Janine Rachau said...

Wonderful sleuthing! Your vibrant colors give it a completely different look while being just as spot on! Those oranges and yellows are terrific!

What a great combination of papers that truly match your style. Have fun playing with this kit.

This is a lovely soft autumnal colourway, isn't it ... You're going to be able to do some super things with your version. I like that yellow linen-look paper. I had one in a lime-y green - Basic Grey, I think?

Dawn McDowell said...

I really like how you added in the Denim blue - It goes so well with the fall colors. your little stars inspired me to add some to my kit!

Margie said...

Lovely kit! I love the leafy washi

Kelly Sroka said...

This is great! All of your patterned papers are beautiful and go so well together!

Cool collection of papers - I like the colours and that grey alpha.

"Identi-kits" - GENIUS! :D

Beverly said...

I really love the blue addition and those brads!

Late to the commenting party this month but time enough to see your wonderful kit. Small and perfectly formed, like the blog hop this month! I really like those colours and using up scraps is always a winner in my book. The small amounts of washi are interesting - did you do that yourself? And of course, I can't resist enamel hearts and shapes as well as those super cute stars which I tend to hoard. A kit that is very much you and really appealing to me too!
