Forgeries on the Fourth - November Tutorials

  1. the action of forging or producing a copy of a document, signature, banknote, or work of art.

Welcome to "Forgeries on the Fourth" where it is no crime to create your own version of the trendy, hip products from the inspiration kit using your own stash and ingenuity.  Each month on the fourth, check out tutorials from your Master Forgers or links to resources they have found for you on the internet. 

This month's inspiration is brought to you by Pink Paislee, but since it is a bit light on embellishments, Bethany charged us to compile an add-on kit that will fill that void.

Here's what each of the Master Forgers chose to go in our Add-on kit:

 Behold this charming collection of embellishments!

Now … to take it a step further (because you know we are ALWAYS pushing the limits!), some of our talented Master Forgers counterfeited their add-on selections.

Let's take a look at their renditions...

Susanne chose to stamp on cork to counterfeit Coffee Time cork embellishments from Prima.  Check out her blog and see how the kitchen came into play again when she was making her add-on kit.

Susan tried out her stamping and sewing skills to recreate Prima's Crochet Icon embellishments. 
You can find step-by-step instructions on her blog.

Stephanie found a video tutorial for making your own paper rosettes, similar to the ones she loved from the Dear Lizzy Documentary collection. See the video from Giulia's Art here ...

What better way to replicate an ephemera pack than with a die cut machine?  Here are some freebie cut files that have the same vibe as the Journey pack by Crate Paper that Lynnette chose.


And another with a travel vibe...

Kelly created her own cute set of embellished paper clips. Find the tutorial on her blog.

Julene has used a template to create her own library pockets like these from Simple stories and has a tutorial on her blog.

Clair chose to recreate some of the bright and cheerful tassels found in the 'Shine Collection' by Maggie Holmes - and has created a Tassel Tutorial that you can find on her blog.

Lisa got stitchy and even tried out brush script writing for her embellishment inspired by Amy Tangerine's kraft, embroidered tags. Check out her blog today to find out how she got on.

 Jemma had a go at recreating social media wood veneers:

Although these weren't her add-on,  Leslie nailed the
scripted bookpage word paper & some arrows & cards.

And Margie made some watercolor leaves to add into her kit:

How will YOU push the limits this month?  Challenge yourself to get crafty and creative with your supplies.  You will be so glad you did!


  1. Amazing embellishments. That all look so good. I love those hand sewn circle. Now I want to go create something.

  2. Hoping to see lots of add ons from members this month!

  3. These are all so creative! Had a lot of fun looking through them all, even if I was really late!
