Forgery on the Fourth


Just a reminder of this month's inspiration kit by Cocoa Daisy - November 2017, "Fair Isle".
You can find the main kit (featured below) here but there were several other kits available to inspire you on the Cocoa Daisy site.


I spy plenty of items which could be created easily and quickly for your own kits such as the clips, the die cut elements, the poinsettia embellishments, the words, labels and even some of the papers. What do you see?

 Let's see what the Master Forgers have in store for us this month:


Susan made her own version of three of the cards in the Fair Isle Pocket Life kit:


They were pretty easy to make - check her blog post here for the tutorials.

Julene was inspired by the cards too and used black and white scraps of cardstock & paper to make these

Julene also found these free  downloads

Another card inspired forgery comes from Guest Designer Julie who got creative with watercolours and fine tipped pens for this gorgeous set of cards for her kit. You can find out more over on her blog.


New Master Forger Laura jumped right in with these super cute but still super easy counterfeits for her kit. You can see more of Laura's crafty goodness over at her Instagram profile (@mrsp_scrapsandtea)!


Lisa simply welded two words together on her Silhouette to make a "gather together" die cut similar to the lovely acrylic element in the inspiration kit. You can see her three step process for this over on her blog. Quick and easy and perfect for a pocket card embellishment.


New Master Forger Lori was inspired by the tags, labels, and banners that can be found in the kit and created her own set to go on her layouts. You can read about how she made them on her blog.



We love seeing how the simplest of ideas can make the prettiest elements for your kit. Why not give one of our ideas a try and join in the fun!

Don't forget to come back again on 6th for some mini-kit inspiration as well as the challenges on 12th and 18th. 

If you create any of your own forgeries, make sure you share with us!
