050417 CKC May Forgeries

CKC is all about creating elements from our supplies & stash.

Because, of course, in my hoard of 2,469 wood veneers there isn't ONE like these!

I like to make my counterfeits simply.
I grabbed some kraft paper, brown ink & some Felicity Jane stamps.
 I love their stamp sets because there are always a lot of words & sentiments that go with the shapes.

Just stamp & fussy-cut!

Now you have a go!
And make sure you share your creations on the Facebook group or Instagram.

Thanx for stopping by!

050117 May CKC Kit Reveal

A little bit of whimsy :)

Christy Strickler, our Guest Designer this month, is practically family to some of us!

Ready for a look at May's kit? 
Of course you are...

Gossamer Blue March 2017
I thought I could match up a lot of the papers from my Felicity Jane stash but that didn't pan out. I took a little different approach & took inspiration from the papers for the rest of my kit first.

Let's take a peek in the Magic Blue Box!

This paper put me in mind of these alphas.

The adorable critter paper bear reminded me of these.

The circular & multi-colored letters yielded this selection of alphas.

Cursive Thickers should help me make a large scripty word.

The charming books became frames.

 The "A" side of the polka dot paper had these great banners - I couldn't resist!

Here is the full set of papers that I selected.

I know - it's very lean for me! The yellow dot is the only one that is spot on (pun intended.)

 My full kit - "Where the Wild Things Are"

Eager to create with this one. 
Oops!!! Update (I forgot to post my alphas, lol...)

Make sure you don't miss a stop on the hop!
And check back on the 4th for our forgery tutorials & links.

Guest Designer Christy Strickler -

Remember that we now have a mini-kit option for our Master Forgers.
