Kerry from Australia


I never get tired of seeing how people use our TCW207 Birds of a Feather stencil and Kerry from Australia totally hit it out of the park on this one.  (And it doesn’t help that the colors she used are my absolute favorite ones…inspired from The Color Room’s Palette #136 (click to see more layouts using our stencils!) . Beautiful!!

Awesome Aussie Scrapsource!











Great stuff on the Aussie Scrap Source website. Although they only sell to retailers shops, they have wonderful ideas and extraordinary designers.  Here’s what was written about the above piece:

“Jill combined both the good and the bad that has been 2012 into a canvas featuring the Prima Craftsman papers and note cards, and the Crafters Workshop ‘Flower Garden’ template.  Collaging the canvas and then layering paints, ink and mists over the template, incorporating autobiographical elements into your artwork is easy to do – not to mention therapeutic!”











“As you probably already know The Crafters Workshop templates are a creative favourite for Louise. For this particular layout Louise has created an ’embossed’ like pattern on her background, using the template, texture paste and gesso. The pattern of the template has been highlighted by the subtle use of Tattered Angels chalkboard glimmer mist behind and around the photo.” 

Name that stencil!!

Color Room inspiration














Isn’t this just so lovely? It’s by Louise Nelson, of course. She was working off of “The Color Room’s” palette #137…











The Color room always has great challenges. So if you’re stuck, looking for a little inspiration, pop over there.  Or here (to Louise’s blog).

Maria Schmidt – Mother and Daughter

Maria Schmidt calls this layout: Mutter und Tochter.  I read the translation and it appears that daughters across the Atlantic make their mothers just as crazy as they do here in the US. Glad to hear I’m not alone.

TCW236 Wood Grain

Maria used our TCW236 Wood Grain stencil to give texture to her layout.  You can read (or translate) her blog here.
