October 2022 - Forgery on the Fourth


A reminder of our inspiration kit:

August 2022 Cherry Box
(For a closer look at each element refer to the October 2nd Just the Gist of It post.)

Beautiful hand lettered phrases & words, elements from nature, beautiful mixed media papers offer a great opportunity for forgery! Let's see what the Master Forgers have come up with.

October Guest Designer Nikki:

This month I decided to combine the chipboard adhesive stickers and the bobbles in the kit. I used stamps from Close To My Heart that are small enough to fit on a one inch circle punch. I created a jig so I can ensure that the phrase is in the center of the circle. You can check out my video here: https://youtu.be/VUw5ojkg0hU

Master Forger Julene has created her own page. "I started by wiping a used teabag across white paper then after it dried, I glued a scrap of book paper in one corner. The edges of this were inked with Tim Holtz distress ink "Old paper" first. Next, I lightly traced 2 bird outlines, then stamped a patterned stamp randomly. I might make similar if I need them"

Master Forger Cindy was inspired by the laser cuts. I really liked the border on the 12x12 cut outs. She included a couple of punches in her kit, and used the Cricut Paper Lace Cartridge for a few more.

Here are a few free printables to fussy-cut:

TONS of gorgeous printables!

MF Misty created a cut file to layer up and forge one of the frame embellishment on the laser cut sheet. (If you use svg cut files you can download this file for your own use too.) A bit of ink blending and spattering, and we have a vintage frame piece.
