For people who like to create like you and me,
paper crafts such as Scrapbooking are a joy! Paper is easy to work with and it has so much potential.
Crafting offers us an escape into our own little world and it’s the greatest stress buster. Most of all, preserving our lives and dearest memories in a creative way is very inspiring.
This page is the freeway to all of the projects on this site that use stencils in conjunction with Scrap booking. So let’s get started.
A stencil mask is a negative of a stencil. Where stencil patterns allow paint to be applied to open areas, a mask blocks areas so that paint can outline the images. Here is a great video to let you see it in action. The video has some great ideas for all of your paper crafts like scrapbooking and card making. You’ll be inspired by Tim Holtz!
You’ll often find that different crafts have much to offer each other. Scrapbooking and Stamping can compliment the craft of stenciling with some exciting results (and vice versa). I found this wonderful video tutorial from Club Scrap that will show you a couple of new creative ways to work with stencils. I hope you get as much inspiration from it as I did.
