September 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! 

Master Forger of Ceremonies Tina has given us our inspiration:

Let's see what the Design Team has counterfeited!

Master Forger Tara was very inspired by this kit to make a few forgeries!!  Full directions and photos of the process are on her blog!  She started with a DCWV paper backed denim paper pad and some handy dandy bleach. She allowed the paper to sit out in the sun to and brought it inside to rinse it out to remove the bleach from the denim.

She also set out to duplicate the wooden buttons from the inspiration kit!

Master Forger Cindy was inspired to recreate one of the paper using the colors of her kit in two different sizes.

Master Forger Cindy also cut out two different sets of leaves 

Blog post here.

Master Forger Juliet pulled out her Cricut (which she should do more often) and found some fun wood slices to cut.  She even used the negatives of one of them and glued them down on a piece of brownish paper to use!  

Master Forger Misty would like to share two different forgeries. 

The first is making small tassels.

The second is using the We R Memory keepers frames punch board (pictured far left) to create your own frame embellishments. The fun thing about this is you'll have extra leftover punched corners that you can then use as photo corners (far right). Bonus!

Master Forger Tara found three Silhouette Cut files and Master Forger Cindy cut them out. 

Silhouette Design Store file # 315536 

Silhouette Design Store file # 325351


Silhouette Design Store file # 324878. 

Master Forger Kate was inspired to use just two supplies to create her own floral paper based on the amazing Amy Tangerine floral paper in the kit.  Full photos of the process and end results are on her blog!

Once again, MF Lisa turned to Pinterest and Google for some freebie inspiration such as:
