Hey...I Can Make THAT!

February Tutorials


Welcome to "Hey...I can make THAT!"  A monthly post to help you truly counterfeit many of the components of the current month's kit.  No need to go out and purchase...just use the supplies you already have to create some of the freshest and trendiest products out there.  Here you will find links to our amazing design team members' blogs and/or links to other craft sites on the web showing how to make these amazing products.

Get ready to see stars AND hearts in this round of tutorials pulled from our February Counterfeit offering.  Find out all about the inspiration kit here.

Now...let's get on with forging!

LesleyG has forged the MME Cupid's Arrow Love 3""x4" Cardstock Journal Element Cards
as well as the "Alpha Love" 12x12 

Jemma counterfeited Crate Paper's Sparked patterned paper, but substituted stars for hearts:
Jimjams - counterfeiting Crate Paper Sparked paper
  • Punch shapes from scraps, matching the colours in the rest of your kit
  • Punch shapes from an old book page
  • Stick them in curved rows onto a plain paper background with the minimum of glue
  • Using a small zig-zag stitch machine-sew them down!
Leslie has also changed up the hearts for a "Starstruck" kit. A handful of counterfeit papers plus some neat embellis were forged from the papers in the inspiration kits.


Lynnette dug out our her watercolor crayons and her daughter's Crayola paint box to create this easy counterfeit heart paper.  Check out her blog here to see the easy peasy process and how she used it on a page.


Well, there you have it, folks!  Now that you are seeing hearts and stars, try your hand at some of these fabulous tutorials.  We'd love to see YOUR creations over on Mr. Linky!
