070814 CKC Tutorial

Can't explain why I am so enamored of recreating the patterned papers in our CKC kits, 
although patterned paper IS my favorite scrapbooking supply.

By using the same colored pens I created my own collection of patterned papers.

The white nail polish that I used last month to gloss a wooden asterisk was sitting by my desk. It took all of three seconds to realize that I could use it like a Smooch paint and simply lay the tiny brush once to each side on orange cardstock to make the Amy Tangerine Plus One Co-Pilot knitted stitch shape.

My original idea for the colored dot paper was to punch out a template of two offset rows of dots as in the Echo Park Splendid Sunshine Darling Dots inspiration paper. A quick troll through my stencils & masks unearthed this Mister HueyBubbles mask. I loved how much more free-form the pattern is - makes me happy :~)  My colors weren't a total match but they do match each other.

Ahh, the aqua Amy Tangerine Plus One Accomplice paper. I thought it was a random square until I saw the full sheet on Lesley's kit reveal & realized it was actually a pattern, lol. Could this Tim Holtz Burlap Stencil have been more perfect to replicate that look effortlessly? My blending tool ended up being my finger as I guess my Distress Ink Tumbled Glass ink pad wasn't juicy enough.

I had a bit of fun with the Pink Paislee Hello Sunshine Raindrops paper & turned 
it into geotags using this Prima stencil & MME stamp with the same set of brush markers .
  The Pink Paislee Hello Sunshine Rainboots paper has a grid of teeny tiny hexagons
with the occasional one colored in. I went large with the brush markers again.

American Crafts clothespeg forgery.

And last but not least, Amy Tangerine tag.
The white paper had a tiny dot pattern, so I stamped the subtle grid.

This was definitely a fun kit to forge!


  1. I am laughing as I scroll down through you blog. You sure know how to keep it fun. Hoping to unearth my masks soon, and make a mess, along side of you.

    1. Someday I am determined that we will scrap together for one glorious week! :D

  2. Gasp! Brilliant! You do realize that I have to go back and add to my own kit now, don't you? ;)

    1. Teehee! Can't resist the big grin on my face - enjoy your playtime!

  3. Wonderful ideas for forgeries :) I really got to give the stencils a try :) I did forge the tag with lettering, thanks to you girls I did this wouldn't have prior to finding counterfeit kit challenge blog :)

    1. I forget about the stencils but they really are versatile. I know what you mean about CKC - gives a whole new avenue for having the "new" stuff as soon as you see something you like. Just make it yourself!

  4. Such clever crafting. I'm beginning to think about all those barely used bottles of nail polish in a different light.

  5. i think you are the master forger indeed! i would never even come up with the idea to forge the items you do. I can just imagine you sitting there grinning while pulling these ideas together! great stuff - she says, hanging her non-forgers head in shame!
