Did You Guess...?

...and did you get it right?

In my Counterfeit Kit reveal post on Monday, I asked you to guess
how many forgeries there were in my kit.

Before I reveal the answer and if you want to guess,
why not nip back and have a look HERE

So which of these did I forge?

Here is my first forgery. 

This was created using vinyl which I cut out on my trusty machine 
and stuck onto plain kraft card stock
Next up and again I just die cut some stars 
(hearts or circles or anything could be used instead)
and placed on my 12x12 kraft.
I haven't stuck them down yet though as I may want a different shape!
 My next attempt (and my least favourite)
was using a stencil and a black pen...

I think I'll be turning that one over to just use the white on the other side!

One I didn't show in my kit was this one...
simply don with an old rub on set that I found whilst hunting for something else!

The next forgery was the map and Spanish words.
I knew that I had ordered photos of my recent trip to Barcelona
and I would be scrapping them using this kit
so what better than to make my own ephemera to suit!
The map is adapted from a Silhouette file I bought and the words
were created and cut to suit a layout I know I will be scrapping!
For those of you with trusty machines, I don't know about you but 
I love to cut around my shapes using the offset as I think it gives the final look
a bit more depth.
If you don't have a trusty machine, why not play around with your fonts
in Word and cut out by hand?

My final forgery is the bag and I will try to explain how I made mine
using a piece of sample wallpaper from the DIY store!

 (Did you spot my numbering mistake?)

The answer? 6 forgeries but probably only 5 that you could see!

So there we go, simple ways to forge some of those kit items.
Will you have a go?
Link Up if you do!


  1. Such a great idea to use a template with a pen for black and white paper! You didn't like it a lot, but it's my absolute favorite and I will copy you right away! That's just brilliant!

  2. Great forgeries and super inspiring! And the gift bag was made from wallpaper?! that's JUST amazing!

  4. I loved the stenciled one, along with Isbaha! Maybe you could cut out strips to use? You did a FAB job this month with the forgeries, my clever friend :D

  5. Well I guessed five but I was wrong on the breakdown! The bag is nice and of course great minds think alike! Any you know that I love those die cut elements he he but the papers are truly inspired. They are all fabulous!


Thank you so much for leaving me some love!
