My new favorite product...

Lately I have been stalking Julie Balzer's blog. I love what she does with stencils! She just released coordinating stencil and stamp kits. I started simple and got myself this stencil and stamp:

(I bought them from BlueMoon Scrapbooking where they have TONS of stencils and stamps!)

I have been playing around with them, but one of the easiest ways I found to use this was just to take a thin black pen and trace some of the circles in the stencil.


The simple outlines add just a little more interest to the page, and the way I arranged them helps your eye move up the page from the lower left to the top right corner.

I LOVE LOVE this Basic Grey PB&J collection!!!!  I used some die cuts that came with the line and a few of the chipboard pieces (the navy bars at the top and bottom of the page, which I machine stitched over).  I cut the chevron paper to make little banners and splattered some navy ink as well! (Page designed based on a sketch from Kristine Davidson).

Thanks for stopping by today!!!

Oh, I love those traced circles! I have quite a few stencils but never quite know what to do with them. Thanks for the inspiration!

Love, love, love this! I think this is my favorite so far. I love everything from the pennants, to the papers, to the journaling, to the circles - it's all perfect!
