Forgery on the Fourth - July 2017

This month's inspiration:

Walden-Pond June 2016 Cocoa Daisy kit

A great color scheme & a nice collection of patterns made this month a fun forage!
Ferret out those funky sayings - I'm searching my stash for cookie fortunes.
Forge the two-toned hearts with an old CKC tutorial found HERE.
A little fussy-cutting might yield the row of houses, squiggles & little birdies.

Let's see what the Design Team has come up with this month:

Megan Blethen, our Guest Designer, created these cute swirls and feathers with her Silhouette Cameo. The swirls mimic the swirl die-cuts from the kit and the feathers are a fun addition to her kit. Check out a complete tutorial on her YouTube channel here.

Kelly also used her Cameo to cut these tags similar to the ones in the inspiration kit. She then added washi tape and patterned paper to the bottom of the tags. 

Lisa surprised herself by coming up with five different items to forge. Of course, nothing works first time for her (!) but the final results are not bad at all. Check out her blog for the full story - you know there's going to be some ups and downs in her process!

The acetate words were the first item that Lisa thought about creating and decided to replicate them on vellum using the print and cut option on her Cameo.

But when she looked at the original kit, there were three items that jumped out at her for easy replication. The hatch design blue/green paper, the yellow paper with white dots and the Pinkfresh Studio paper with the strips of colour and words which turned into two different items.


  1. Looks like the cameo machines were in full use this month. I really like everyone's ideas.
