Counterfeit Kit Challenge - Forgery on the Fourth

I'm on mini-kit duty again this month which I'm totally happy with and when I looked through the Wild Hare Kits inspiration kit which was curated for Mandi Holmes - which you can find out all about over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog here - I spied something that would be super useful for my kit and something that I would rarely think to buy for my own stash.

This photo shows some of the super embellishments for the kit and those Thickers at the bottom were the item that caught my attention.

Big, swirly, pretty words that are super for titles, embellishments or even cards and will fit perfectly onto pocket page cards - hint hint.


I started off by opening up my Silhouette and creating two 6x12 pages and then just shopped my library of designs to pick out all the words that are the same as the original Thickers. Then I played around with the sizing until they fitted onto the sheet in the same way - more or less - as the original items.



After that, I simply made the page a full 12x12 sheet and copied the second half onto the other side.

Next up was picking a woodgrain paper from my stash. This sheet by Jen Hadfield fitted the bill.


And then I just watched my Silhouette do its wonderful stuff!

Look at the negative sheet here - I think this could be useful in some way so I'll keep it for now. Isn't it pretty!


And all the words still on the cutting mat.


I carefully removed all the little bits inside the letters and words and was amazed that every single tiny bit was perfectly cut and still all in one piece!


I arranged them all on a sheet of cardstock and I love the fact that it's almost the same as the original, but uses up a whole bunch of words and elements that I've got in my Silhouette library! I just know that I'll use up a few of these with my mini kit which I'll be showcasing on Saturday.


So, head over to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog today to check out the other forgeries being shown there and then don't forget to come back again on 6th for some mini-kit inspiration as well as the challenges on 12th and 18th.

  1. These are wonderful!!! It's amazing with the aide of some crafting technology mixed with creative thinking to have items identical or close to it as commercial vendors' products! Can't wait to see how you use these!

  2. Total forgery success šŸ˜ I’m still tempted to get an electronic die cut machine... my daughter just got a Cricut & has been crafting up a storm!
