Back to Forging

Thanks for popping back to see me and my pie chart forgery.

I do have to admit that I've missed creating forgeries - it gets my brain working!!!

 I chose to use a sheet of 12x12 vellum to create my pie chart.
So, along with my craft knife, a ruler, and ink pad, some stencils/masks and my trusty Martha Stewart circle cutter, I got to work...

...I cut my circle...

...sliced my pie

...inked through my mask/stencils (I never quite know which they are)... create some different patterns...

Pretend you haven't seen the state of my masks/stencils 
but they do still work even though I never clean them!!!

What do you think?

I then started on the labels for the pie chart where again I used my circle cutter along with white card and some rub ons...

It's hard to take the photos in this shockingly grim and dim British light
 but you get the gist and I hope to use these on one of the upcoming challenges.

What have you forged for your kit?
Go on, have a go!!!


  1. Fabulous forgery Lesley! I am very tempted to give it a try.

  2. Great forgery!! I'm going to have to use this idea on a layout soon!

  3. Right ... now I definitely NEED one of those circle cutters!

  4. I struggle with circles and have bought so many circle cutters over the years and they are all crappy so I'm interested to see how successful yours is. Your take on the forgery is great and I have to admit that I didn't even notice that element in the original kit. I very much miss your forging skills. :-(


Thank you so much for leaving me some love!
