September Counterfeit Kit - killed it!

How "dead" do you like to get your kits (Counterfeit or otherwise) before you consider them killed? My September Counterfeit Kit(s) were absolutely massive, and I decided I wanted to use as much as possible before packing them away or creating another kit.

Here's a quick reminder of the pages I've already posted over the last month or so . . . feel free to scroll back through my posts to see close-ups or find out what challenges they were for.

Then there's a few other fairly quick pages . . .

and on some I challenged myself to use those Crate Paper cut-aparts . . .

Some pages were just plain fun . . .

So that's it, a massive 24 pages!

 I managed to use heaps of the frames, die-cuts and cut-aparts that I had pulled, and while I didn't use them all, I did pull others from my stash. I also pulled things like wood veneers, diy flair and washi tape.  I was especially pleased with how many of the rhinestones I used, they are currently my favourite embellishment and I wish I had them in more colours! Although I wasn't too worried whether my alphas were from my kit, my stash or my Silhouette, I was pleased with how much use the white chipboard one saw.

I used all but 3 of the 26 patterned papers I had chosen, but pulled more than that from my stash throughout the month, as well as plenty of cardstock, and it's all about using your stash, right?

The orange paper will eventually end up on a birthday page, I'm sure, the blue ledger paper will certainly be used for a school page, but the doily paper I tried numerous times to use without success . . . any suggestion?

Thanks for taking the time to visit, and don't forget to stop and let me know what your strategies for kit killing are!


  1. My oh my, what an impressive body of work this is. Lots of those pages look like fun. I love those two words - killed it.

  2. Wow! You had great success with this kit! All your pages look lovely but I especially like those last two - those feathers are very pretty and the mixed media on the last one is very eye-catching.
    I have a couple different feelings about using up my kits. Some really inspire me and I want to use every bit of them. With other months though, I get tired of them faster and when that happens, I don't force myself to use them. I'll go through their contents and pass along the pieces that I know no longer inspire me. Whatever is left goes back into my supplies.

  3. Bravo! Excellent production! The doily paper? Love it. I used an orange one recently in the background on a Scrapbook Generation sketch. Although that layout is for multiple photos, you might pull something for you own use. You can see my layout here:
