March 2024 Forgeries on the Fourth


Today the Master Forgers are here to show you how to make your own products by using your stash.

Before we begin, let's look at the kit again

This feature is all about the fun of having a go at making up your own 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 to see it when are motivated to give it a go!

Now it's time to see what our talented team have come up with - this is always such an inspiration for me. The Master Forgers often create things that would just not have crossed my mind.

Master Forger Misty was inspired by the crepe paper "ribbon" in the inspo kit. She not only recreated the ruffled ribbon in the kit, but then kept playing with crepe paper to make florals & more. You can learn how to do these yourself for just pennies over on her YouTube video.

Master forger Julene has made some floral tags using scraps of cardstock, a paint chip and patterned paper.

Master Forger Ryann wanted to get the look of the green heart paper she didn't have.  She used scraps of music note paper on her die cut machine to cut the hearts, and used one of them as a stencil to create the outline look on the paper.  She chose to use a lightly patterned green paper instead of the solid.

She also got inspired to make some of the floral cards, again, using scraps, and adding the last bits of flower stickers from several different sets she had on hand.

Master Forger Laurie came up with the idea to make some 3x4 pocket cards. She used card stock, stamps and stickers from her kit this month.
