February 2023 - Forgery on the Fourth


We are back today to give you an idea or two of how to make your embellishments or elements for your own February Counterfeit Kit! 

Let's have a quick look again at the inspiration kit this month. 

This feature is all about the fun of having a go at making up your embellishments or re-creating the papers as a way of getting the same look as the inspiration kit even if you don't have any of the original items.

These tutorials are often so simple and easy that it really is a perfect chance to try out an idea or two. Make sure you share if you do, we love it when you are motivated to give it go! 

MF Misty was inspired by several pieces—tags, frames, arrows and circle embellishments— in the inspiration kit. You can see the kit pieces and the items she made all in the photo below. (In fact, she made WAY more than what is pictured because she was having so much fun just making!) She covered white cardstock with various washi tapes and then got to work punching, die cutting & using other tools to create all these shapes.

MF Julene had a very simple idea to use gift wrapping paper as scrapbooking paper. It was the closest she could find to the dark floral in the kit. Adhere to cardstock for extra strength. 

and the layout using it.

Master Forger Tara decided that her big ole kit that she put together was lacking in the floral departments, so she enlisted the Silhouette Studio Design Store and her Cameo to print and cut two sheets of watercolor florals that matched her kit!!  Now, she has some floral ephemera to use on her layouts this month!!!

Here is what the rest of February's month of inspiration will look like:

6th February - Mini Kit Reveal and Project Showcase - Inspiration for a smaller kit or project ideas.
12th February - Challenge #1 - To inspire you to get creating from your own kit.
18th February - Challenge #2 - To inspire you to get creating from your own kit.
24th February - Followers Showcase - who has caught our eyes this month.
28th February - Killing Kits - an idea or two focusing on using up the bits and pieces left in your kit.

You know that we always love to see your work, so please share your kits and projects with us. You can post them in our Facebook Community or share them on Instagram (we are @counterfeitkitchallenge or tag us using #counterfeitkitchallenge and #ckcfebruary2023).
