New Master Forgers for 2018!

We are delighted that after searching high and low and far and wide, we have four wonderful new crafters who are joining us as Master Forgers for 2018!

They are jumping right in for January and will here on the 1st to showcase their own takes on our very first kit to counterfeit for the new year. This is going to be a great year and we can't wait.

So.... drum roll.... our new Master Forgers are: Cindy, Laura, Lori and Tina and we are thrilled to have them.

I'm going to let them introduce themselves:


Hi, I’m Cindy. 

I am delighted to be Master Forger at Counterfeit Kit Challenge this year. 

I currently live in Minnesota. I’ve been married to my sweetheart for 33 years and we have two awesome sons ages 32 and 28.
I’m an avid scrapbooker, cardmaker, quilter, crocheter and crafter of any kind. I enjoy gardening and the outdoors.  I scrapbook for myself and my two guys.


Hi I'm Laura and I'm delighted to be here as part of the Master Forgers team. 

I'm a wife and mama to my little Mr. J and our small brood of pets. 

I've been a scrapper in some form since a teenager but I have scrapped as we know it today for around 9 years. I just love the creative process and capturing memories and the little stories of life. 

I am so looking forward to being a Master Forger and inspiring and being inspired by the wonderful community here at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge

Hello! My name is Lori and I live in Missouri with my husband and our two sons. 

My husband and I have been married for almost 28 years and we have a daughter (27) and two sons (19 and 17). My daughter is married to her high school sweetheart and they have a little girl (4) that I get the pleasure of keeping during the week while her Mommy teaches. 

I was introduced to scrapbooking by my sister who bought me a Creating Keepsakes magazine when my oldest son was born way back in 1998. I have been hooked ever since! Card making soon followed and the last couple of years I have been doing the Project Life style of scrapbooking. 

Over the years I have accumulated quite a bit of stash and I know making up these kits will help me to get it used up! I love to spend time in my scrap room - it is what really relaxes me after a long day! I have a pretty clean and simple style, but I do love to add some layers once in a while. 

I am so excited to be a Master Forger and I can't wait to get started!

Hi, I am Tina!

I live in South Williamsport, PA. I am married to a wonderful man now 24 years between the 2 of us we have 8 kids, 17 Grandkids, 6 Greatgrandkids :) We are the owners to 1 fur-baby too, Buddy an Australian cattle dog (Blue Heeler) and has been part of our lives since 2004. I'm a machine operator working the night shift for Leclrec foods.

I started scrapbooking in 2007 when 2 coworkers/friends took me to my first crop, one of the girls said all I needed to bring was the pictures and anything special to go with them, she provided me with my first album and I had access to her supply of paper. 

I fell in love with the hobby that day and have been doing it since, that year for Christmas they gave me my first tote-bag kit that I still use when going to crops. I love to scrap in my Scrapcave (scraproom) it gives a chance to relax and enjoy the process of preserving memories.

I came across Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog by way of new fellow Master Forger Cindy when she counterfeited a kit, checked out the blog and I've been following and doing a kit from the blog since November 2013.

I scrap, make cards, smash and project life.
