Counterfeit Kit Challenge Tutorial and Mini Page 6

Hello friends and fellow scrap kit counterfeiters! I have a tutorial of sorts to share with you, how I made my own paper and dimensional stickers, plus additional resources.  I hope you like it although you might not be using the same papers right now, you can bookmark and tell your friends about it! Ok, let's get to it. As I am focusing my Counterfeit Kit this month around the Pink Paislee Soiree Collection, and Collage Paper I'll tell you I did purchase a few sheets from the collection at my local scrap store. However, the store only had those few sheets and nothing else from the collection left. No stamps, no stickers, no wood embellishments, nothing else. All sold out.

So in the true spirit of the Counterfeit Kit Challenge, I am making my own embellishments. Here is what I've done. First, I decided to create customized paper similar to the Soiree-Words paper for my niece's graduation album. So I downloaded the following fonts...(click on each font name to go to the download page).


Here is how my paper turned out...I printed it on 8.5"x11" paper, and trimmed it to my desired size. (I use an HP Photosmart D5460 printer.)

Then I wanted to make my own dimensional stickers. I had bought two of the Soiree Collage paper so I could fussy cut some of the images. As I said, these (dimensional stickers) were sold out at my local scrap store.

My version:
My version of Dimensional Stickers, fussy cut from patterned paper and using pop-dots

And so I used both the customized word patterned paper, and my new dimensional stickers on a new page for my niece's graduation album...
