August 2021 - Forgery On The Fourth

FOF is back again today to show you how it's possible to look at the inspiration kit, see if there are any elements which you would love to incorporate into your own kit but that you don't have in your stash right now, and then take the idea forward to make your own version! 

Let's remind ourselves once more of the kit we are using this month for our inspiration:

Dani Peuss - May 2021 kit

And now onto the Design Team's ideas!

Master Forger Leslie has collected some free printable links for you.

Rectangle labels, circle labels (3 colorways), rainbows, 100+ planner elements, cut-apart cards, paper airplane, camera +14, mixed media paper, BONUS link 20 Quote Printables (not pictured)

Master Forger Julene has copied the idea of the photo corners plus stamped some big flowers like those in the kit.

Master Forger Misty created a forgery of a pattern paper from one of the kit's add-ons. She shares her process via YouTube, but you can also read more on her blog.

Master Forger Juliet forged one of the papers from Heidi Swapp Carefree papers in the kit. 

Super simple forgery, she just took her 1" stamp pads that she has that she best thought matched the colors (although you could do them the colors you want!) and dragged them across the 12x12 white cardstock.  So simple but love the results! She also pulled her corner punch and is ready to use that!

MF Lisa has been searching Pinterest for some interesting freebies for printing, die-cutting and all round good ideas!

MBH Designs has a great tutorial for making your own twine wrapped rainbow element which is so trendy right now and I think would be perfect for your kit in a mini-version!

And last but not least, I was interested in the random note letter style stickers and found these:

You could download this "Earwig Factory by Ray Larabie"font over at Daily Font and use it for hybrid journalling or just fill a page with the letters and cut them out fussy-cut style!

OR - and how cool is this? - use The Ransomizer which is a ransom note generator! You could type out the letters you want or even the journalling, select the look you want and then you get a note that you could print and cut out or just stick onto your page! I love it!
