Amazing TCD Stencils – we love them!!!


We have finally decided to “get our act together” and do a blog post. We are loving the new Teresa Collins Designs Stencils and the many ways you can use them. So over the last few weeks our scrapbook workshops have showcased the stencils and Modeling Paste. The Paste is easily applied with a palette knife and dries quickly. Sponging or spritzing thru the templates adds a fast yet very effective “layer” to your page.
We have a sketch challenge at our Midnight Madness Workshops so you will notice some LOs that have similar design elements.











This is one of Bronwyns LO, a photo taken when she was in the South Island, over 2 years ago.   Kraft is such a great go to Cardstock for a background colour, add some stamping with a Tim Holtz Bitty Grunge stamp and it  looks fantastic, (one of my favorite stamp sets).   Of course washi tape is a great “go to” to add to any LO and  put that with some embossed stamping and twine  and this LO looks wonderful.  The lettering is a Sizzix die – Once upon a time.

Come dive with me


Last night – was Midnight Madness at Craft Haven.  We papercrafted the evening away – and yes, by about 11:00pm it is all getting  a little ‘mad’ – only in the crazy, fun, laugh till it hurts way – not the where is the straight jacket, lock me up way.  We had a sketch challenge and this was my LO on display as inspiration for the sketch.  I kept it pretty simple and clean as a good place to start for newbie scrappers.  There is some perfect pearl mist, spritzed thru a TCW mask, but the photo doesn’t really show it up too well.  I love the Cherry Lyn dies, and chicken mesh is a favourite of mine – so many different uses – here it takes on a fishing net look.  Of course Washi tape is fun to work with and another fav of mine at the moment.    The papers, lettering and pennants are from A Walk in the Park Collection Kit – by Echo Park.
