Make Your Own Stencils - Day Dreamer

I spent the morning making me various stencils using thin sheets of plastic, which can be found at www.shoestringscrapbooking.co.za. The sheets are about A4 size & work perfectly for making your own stencils.


Plastic Sheets
 


I have been looking for a brick stencil for a while now & have had no luck finding one. So I googled "Brick Templates" under images, found a picture I liked, printed it & then traced it onto my plastic. Then cut out all the bits & voila I have my stencil.


Brick Stencil


Here is my layout that I used the stecil on - Day Dreamer

Challenge No.15 - Cardstock

Here is the latest challenge over at Scrap Africa:


Use only plain card stock, NO patterned papers. But you are asked to use at least 3 colours of card stock or more if you want to...and these you can alter by stamping or embossing, whatever way you want to.

 


Here is my entry for the challenge - Driving Lesson No.1


Driving Lesson No.1


I started of by placing my paper onto bubble wrap & then sanded the paper until I got bubbles on my main piece of cardstock. I then took small plastic lids & sanded the paper until I got larger circles on my main piece of cardstock. I then sanded, stamped & embossed the other pieces of  cardstock that I used on my layout .


 


You have until 31 March 2013 to get your entries in.

Puppy Love - Single Layout

Lady (my bulldog) died on 29 Dec 2012 & I have been looking for a bulldog puppy since. I have gone through all the classified sites I could find & not 1 bulldog puppy for sale in Klerksdorp or surrounding areas.


So on Monday morning I went to look at the puppies at a lady up the road & picked this little sweetie. She is a mixed breed & her name is Hazel.
