Scrapbooking with Stencils

Why have I fallen in love with stencils?

They are so versatile. I use them on all kinds of projects including my scrapbook pages.

Stencils are inexpensive and take up almost no space.  It isn't just the cost of our supplies but often the space that is an issue.  I have all my stencils in one drawer with plenty of room leftover for more.

Stencils are a stash stretcher.  You can dust off those ink pads, mist bottles, paints, chalks and pretty much anything that creates color and really use your supplies in a fresh way.

And the biggest reason I love working with stencils is they are FUN!


In this class, I'll show you how to use stencils on your scrapbook pages. We will create artistic pages. and regular multi-photo pages.  They fit right in with all kinds of scrapping styles and add an extra layer of color and texture to your pages.

This very technique driven class contains:
  • 25 ways to add color and design to your pages
  • instructions on how to use ink pads, paints, mists and many other supplies you already have in a brand new way
  • suggestions for what to look for when purchasing stencils and supplies
  • settings for cutting your own stencils with a Cricut or Silhouette.
  • 9 HD video based lessons with over 4 hours of content
  • 9 PDF files with supply lists, sketches and extra tips
  • 7 brand new page sketches
The introductory price for the Scrapbooking with Stencils class is just $20 US.

Two Page Terrific!

Do you prefer the look of two page layouts in your albums?  
Do you have more photos, journaling or memorabilia from an event than will fit on one page?


A two page layout is perfect.  Yet, creating continuity across two pages can present some challenges.  In Two Page Terrific we will address each of those challenges.  

You'll learn...
  • How to stretch that ONE piece of the perfect pattern paper across two pages.
  • What to do about the space between your pages in your album - the gutter.  Do you place elements across the two pages or keep things squarely on each side of the gutter?  We'll do both kinds of layouts in this class.
  • Smoothly incorporate pocket pages along with your traditional 12x12 pages.
  • Convert one page sketches to two pagers with an easy technique.
  • Take a popular one page style like grid pages and apply to a 2 pager

My videos and classes always have lots of extra tip and techniques.  Just some of the extra topics this time are:
  • Using your stamps. Do you have stamps gathering dust?  Get them out, dust them off and let's put them to work!
  • Trim the cost.  Two page layouts don't have to be twice the cost.  By stretching many of your supplies through various techniques, you can keep your cost low and fill those albums with memories.
  • Use stencils to jazz up your backgrounds
  • Store and incorporate memorabilia on your pages.
  • Print journaling on your background paper - even if you don't have a wide format printer.
  • Create a photo collage in Photoshop Elements for adding even more photos to your two pagers.
  • Learn tips to for machine stitching on your pages.
This class is filled with practical ideas you can put right to work on your pages.  Class contains:  

Over 2 hours of HD video content

6 PDF's that include sketches for the six brand new 2 page layouts in the class.  

Twelve additional two page layouts are shared during the lessons.



This self-paced class is only $20 US.  All the videos and materials are available to you as soon as registration is complete.
