080814 August CKC Tutorial

This was a BIG inspiration kit.

Studio Calico Penny Arcade

Each month the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog presents it's own unique inspiration.
This month the sheer volume of kit & add-on choices was phenomenal!
My kit actually included 26 pieces of paper!  =O  
(I got a little carried away...)

 Every time I looked I found something else to forge or sub from my stash.

I made my version of the happy little cloud paper.
I still need to find a rub-on sentiment for it.

The feather paper I really loved, but it didn't go well with my kit.
I forged just the feathers for embellis.

The doodled alpha paper was irresistable.
Mine is less elaborate but I feel still a success.

I used a white pen to suggest the outline of the cloud & added chalk to enhance it.
His cute little cheeks were printed using a pencil end eraser - makes a perfect dot!

Found this 2004(!) Making
Memories rub-on sentiment
plus the tiny 2011 Studio
Calico cloud rub-ons

It took me three tries to get this right. I can still use them on the brown side as well.

These alpha stamps were actually quite small so I kept the doodles simple on the letters.

I loved the tissue fringe & remembered that I 
have the perfect paper & tools to make this 
forgery easy-peasy.

The cloud stencil I have translated into 
a vellum overlay.

The adorable printed tissue & fringe scissors accomplished this in a snap.

Punch, punch, punch & done!

This is an ancient wood veneer 
tag that I simply punched out.

This was a product I hadn't used before.
They will buff up to more of a shine once dry.

Now it's your turn!

  1. Fabulous ideas Lesley. we both had the same one with the orange doodled lettering. I have some inka gold which I might use like you did with the silver gilders paste.

  2. Great ideas. Really like your mini alphas paper it will make a nice accent and those are such flappy clouds.

  3. Great job on making your own. I'm really impressed with the gilders paste job!!

  4. Brilliant forgeries as always Leslie - YAY to you :)

  5. Lots of quick ideas to copy. My fav is the doodled lettering shrunk down to an accent card. While the 12x12 paper would have stumped me, your mini version is something I could work with.

  6. Clever forgeries - LOVE the cloud paper and the use of security scissors!

  7. you really are the master forger! the cloud paper is so perfect and you are just so clever at working out how to replicate those items you don't have in your own stash!

  8. I always live to see your blog entry for the 8th of each month --- even if it is now Aug 26 ;) thanks for sharing. Fantastic forgeries!!!
