Process Video: Using Stencils in Your Scrapbooking

Have you ever tried using a stencil in your scrapbooking? Several of the Echo Park Paper collections come with coordinating stencils and I decided to incorporate one on today’s scrapbook page using the Coffee collection.
I tend to shy away from complicated mixed media techniques, but love how easy it is to use the stencils to create interesting background effects! If you can spread butter on a piece of toast, then you will be a pro at this technique.
Here’s a look at the completed page. Can you see where I used the Coffee Dot stencil?

To get this look, all I did was place the stencil on the background paper, and then use a flat card (an old gift card works great!) to spread Vicki Boutin Gold Glaze through the openings. Allow the glaze to dry completely and you are ready to build your design.
Other ways you can use the stencils to add pattern to your pages would be to spray mist across the stencil, or use a dauber or sponge and an ink pad to blot on color through the openings.

I used gold mist in other areas of the layout to repeat the color of the gold glaze.

If you know me, you know that I LOVE to fussy-cut out designs from patterned papers to use as elements in my layout. Here I cut out the flower clusters from the Wake Up and Smell the Flowers paper. I also cut out the “It’s a Wonderful Life” phrase from the 4×6 Horizontal Journaling Cards paper to use as a title.

I extended the stenciled gold glaze down below my photo block. I love the way it looks peeking out between my journaling strips.

Give the stencils a try! I think you will discover just how fun and easy they are to use.

Stashbusting: Using Only Die Cuts

Have you ever tried creating a scrapbook page using only die cuts? That is what I did on this next layout. Check it out below!

TROPICAL ADVENTURE

I had picked up this pack of large die cuts at Michael’s one summer after our vacation to Hawaii. I thought they would be the perfect page accents. However, I didn’t have any paper that matched the style of the die cuts and the size of the die cuts themselves was quite large. So, I decided to use them as the main focal point for my page.

I arranged my photos together and then began tucking the leaves and flowers in around them. Notice again, that there is no patterned paper layers on this page … only die cuts.

I ended up with two “spaces” between the leaves. I used the space at the top of the page for my journaling …

… and the space at the bottom of the page for the title.

This page title was created with an “oldie-but-goodie” stamp set in my stash. They are the “Nadiya Stamps” by Studio Calico from 2008. I remember when they released these stamps. I HAD to have them … but you know what?! I think this is only the second time I have actually USED them. *blush*

The small gold Thickers made the perfect little shelf for my stamped word to “sit” on.

This weekend, dig into your stash and find a set of die cuts that could use some love. If they are a large set, try using them as “layers” tucked in around your photos, instead of using patterned paper. Who knows? You might just come up with a design you love!

See you again soon!
