January Scraps Class

Tonight I am having my monthly class at our local "Scraps" store. I have 11 girls signed up even though I normally only take 8. Did you know Stampin' Up! has a line of stencils in their Definately Decorative Catalog? Our Decor Stencils offer you a variety of designs from simple to ornate. Transform your cards, scrapbook pages or your home into a work of art!

This is the first card we created:

We used the "Mostly Vintage Stencil". What is wonderful about this stencil is that it comes with 2 pieces....the positive image and the negative image. We used the positive image on this card and stenciled our color on the inside. What is also great about all of Stampin' Up!'s stencils is that once you are finished using them, spray them with "Stampin' Mist" and rinse under your kitchen faucet. I carefully blot mine on paper towels so as not to damage the intricate designs. These stencils can be used over and over!
