Forgery on the Fourth - September 2017



 This month's inspiration has three choices:

Studio Calico September 2016 Lost River (Scrapbook Kit)
A few of the papers just beg to be forged - doodled trees underneath a blue sky, hand-drawn woodgrain, or gold glitter circles - yes, please! Free-hand vellum circles & little kraft envelopes are simple cutting jobs, especially with a handy template HERE
Studio Calico September 2016 Lost River (Documenter Kit)
 Project Life-style cards are a fun size to counterfeit, and some of these make use of photo images!  Try using some of your own photos to customize your layout & scour your stamps for great sentiments.

 Is anyone else running to your scanner with your cell phone to forge that adorable notepad???

It's time to see what the Design Team has come up with this month:


Julene has used gold mist through circles punched in a scrap of paper to create the gold dotted paper.



Being misted there is some overspray but this can be covered with photos etc.
This following paper was made by misting through Punchinella.

Another idea is using the glue dot holes with kindy glitz

 Ideas for Scrapbookers: Another Use for Foam Dots - they make perfect template for rows of Stickles

 Susan found a few free resources to help you round out your kit:

1.  If you're missing a woodgrain paper for your kit, there's one that you can download and print yourself here.  It's available in several colors too.  (The paper is on Flickr and the creator of the woodgrain paper has this tutorial to help you download it from that site.)

2.  Adventure is a big theme in the inspiration kit - here's a free hand-lettered cutfile that you might want to add to your kit.  And these pocket cards are definitely in keeping with that theme as well.

3.  Here's a download to a "currently" card similar to the one in the Documenter kit.

4.  If you'd like some tabs, tags and labels for your kit, you can find some here and here

5.  The downloads in #4 have text on them.  If you'd like blank labels, you can download both a PDF and a print-and-cut here.

Leslie got back in the game this month, making five (five!) different forgeries based on her In The Mood Kit. There's a fabulous run through of all the forgeries on her blog here.


Clair decided to include several counterfeited items in her kit 'Field Notes'. She's included several handmade Jounrnalling Cards, inspired by the Documenter Kit, as well as a few cards from this downloadable 'Go Outside' set of 3x4 cards from Persnickity Prints


Clair also loved the Gold Alpha from the Lost River Scrapbook Kit and made her own version with some Rinea Gold Foiled Paper; her trusted die-cut machine and a little bit of washi tape. Visit her Custom Shimmer & Shine Alpha Tutorial for more details.


A SPECIAL SHOUT-OUT to a faithful follower, Libeeti, for this easy tutorial on making faux printed washi tape included in her counterfeit kit reveal this month!

If you have included a tutorial in a post, please add the word "tut" to your post on the Linky, Facebook group, Flickr group, or Instagram to make it easier to find!
