A little stencil fun.

Hi lovelies,

On the weekend I had a chance to play with the new Couture Creations Anna Griffin Arabesque Stencils, and I love them.

They are slightly thicker than most other stencils so I could apply a generous amount of my texture paste.

I also love the fact that the stencil is coloured.  This meant that when I went to apply the paste to only certain areas of the stencil I did not have to mask them off.  You just have to love short cuts in crafting

I used the Secret Garden Stencil with Dreamweaver Crackle Paste.  When the paste had set and cracked I used my watercolours to apply a wash of colour.  It was great that the wash flowed down into the cracks.  For those who know me, it was a shaky day, so the painting was not as steady as I wished.

I did have a lot of fun and can't wait to use the other stencils.

Layout of the Month - May

Hi Lovelies,

Today we thought we would show you a look at the  Page of the Month kit that was designed by Helen.   She has again created a beautiful double page layout.

This month the kit featured the beautiful Hearts Ease papers and embellishments from Ultimate Crafts.  

The gentle soft tones of the papers and dyed ribbons would suit a variety of photos.

 Kits come with full instructions, colour photos, all papers and embellishments.
Kits can be collected in store, or on our online kit page.
Please contact us if you would like more information.
