Counterfeit Kit Challenges Forgeries on the Fourth

Hello, hello! Happy Tuesday to you! It's time for Forgeries on the Fourth at Counterfeit Kit Challenges and I have a couple of quick ones for you!

Here's a reminder of our June inspiration kit - Hip Kit Club's May 2019 scrapbook kit:

The inspiration for my first forgery actually came from the May 2019 Hip Kit Club Pocket Life Scrapbook Kit. I really liked the foam backed silver glitter hearts that were included in the kit. I really didn't want to make silver glitter hearts, so I used some scraps and papers from the 6x6 paper pad that I included in my kit to make my version of the foam backed hearts. 

Here's a look at the supplies I used:

I die cut several different sizes of hearts out of the fun foam and again out of the paper I wanted to use:

Here they are all put together. The hearts in the Pocket Life kit looked to be really thick. I don't like too much dimension, so I just kept to one layer of fun foam, but you could easily add more layers to get the thickness you want

And a close-up:

Next, I really liked the rainbow-colored plus sign paper in the inspiration and I knew I had a small background stamp of a plus sign. I pulled out my inks -in rainbow order and went to work:

Is it perfect? Not even close, but that doesn't matter to me! This paper will either be used in my Traveler's Notebook, or as a layering piece, or even cut up for embellishments.

Be sure to stop by the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog to see the forgeries from the rest of the design team. We hope that you are inspired to make your own forgeries this month!


  1. What a great idea to make your own rainbow paper! Love all your cute hearts. I need to try to cut foam:)

  2. Great work, I am going to have a go making some foam hearts. I love your plus paper, very clever and more interesting than the original.

  3. Love the foam elements I agree with Leanne so clever.

  4. Wonderful, fun forgery ideas, Lori! The hearts are so whimsical... love 'em!! That stamp made a really great background paper. I think it would be awesome used alternatively in a solid colour, and may try this for the pages I am working on for Daniel's baby album! Hmmmmm.... Of course *I HAVE* that CTMH mini-stamp! (LOL LOL) TY for sharing so many awesome idea on your blog. Good stuff!!
