080813 CKC August Forgery Tutorials
There were a lot of interesting elements in this month's inspiration kit
"The Confidence Kit" from Scrapping From the Inside Out.
First up is the Simple Stories 24/7 Snapshots polaroid accent.
I thought these were super-cute & had just the thing to start me off.
I chose an assortment of 6x6 papers in keeping with my kit.
Then I used this great little Heidi Swapp kit for making them!
It was intended that you put a photo in the frame but I
wanted a counterfeit of those cute accents. Even without the
kit, it would be simple to cut out the polaroid frame shape.
I loved this Simple Stories 24/7 Sn@p Page but wanted a lighter look.
I gathered up an alpha stencil, cutting mat & blade, black
& patterned paper, and a scallop border punch.
I did like the edginess of the black, so I mounted my cutout
on a black scalloped edge background to help highlight the lettering.
I had pulled a large assortment of stamps...
...to make up a stamp set,
and decided to use some to make up conversation bubble accents!
My big forge this time was the Simple Stories 24/7 Everyday paper
Totally successful, especially when you like yours better than the original :~D
