Many thanks to Scrapbook.com for stopping by and filming our CHA Winter 2014 booth. Lots of great stencils to drool over, yes? We will start shipping to your favorite stores at the end of this month!
Okay, so I’m not really “famous”, but I was on Julie Fei-Fan Balzer’s podcast, “Adventures in Arting”. If you ever wanted to know the story of “The Crafter’s Workshop”, here ya’ go! (Plus you get to listen to the wonderful Julie plus Ilene duo!)
Click here for photos of moi, plus a few artsy things I’ve made, and click below to just listen!
Ronda Palazzari’s blog is chock full of awesome ideas using her stencil designs! And this week, she has a bunch of friends posting their wonderful ideas. Like the card above by Miriam Pranter. Love this! (Maybe I’m a city-girl at heart!!)
Or how about Sanna’s ornaments? She’s done three different versions here.
And check this out by Sara Case Strickland! Mighty cute, eh? (She’s from Canada, I can say “eh?” if I want to!)
So don’t stop here, head over to Ronda’s blog to see what else is going on!! Git!
Lynne Forsythe just shared this fun way to jazz up gift-giving. Her post is here, and her video is below. Lynne writes:
Can I tell you…this is very dangerous because I LOVE TURTLES!
Sara Naumann has a wonderful tutorial on how to use the new Spectrum Noir Alcohol Pens with our Abstract Leaves stencil (TCW395).
hint: These leaves also make great holiday cards!!!!! Just change the colors to greens/golds/silvers….whatever!
Just had to share this project idea from the Darby Smart page using TCW401 Mix Tape stencil. It’s a really cool site where you buy the whole craft kit and then go for it. THEN you upload your project as you did it onto their showroom page. Fun!
Elizabeth Johnson sent me this stop-motion photo of how she took our Aspen Trees stencil, “blew it up”, traced it on her wall, and then painted it. WOW!
I told Elizabeth to just add whatever comments or answer whatever questions you might have, in the below comment section…I can’t stop watching this!!
As promised, another video tutorial with Christine Urias of ScrapTime! Here she’s using distressed inks plus our stencils and then her white paint markers and all sorts of other goodies (click here to read more.)
