My Stencil Folder..

Good evening is your week going? Oh ours got off to a bad start with there being complications and Tess not having her operation for a few weeks Monday morning traffic was a real joy ...twice!!!!

Then Karl flew up to Aberdeen to work on an analyser. Only to find that his bag including all his tools was in Glasgow....and they could only be reunited the following day...

So today I felt like some time for me ...and what better way to do it than go and see my friends at Maria's Craft hub ....oh I did need those was so good to spend time chatting, crafting and laughing......and generally catching up with Maria, Linda, Cindie, Jane, Viv to name but a few...

Maria holds this get together twice a month on a Wednesday and it is well worth a visit....also she is having an open day Saturday September 6th is the date to put in your diary.......her brilliant craft hub and Inkymits Crafts, Unit 23, Price Street Business Park, Birkenhead, CH41 4QJ...and her blog is...

Everyone took a project to work on and I do love to see what everyone is doing.

I took my stencil folder to work on.....I made the front and back covers at home and some pages for the Inside at Maria's.

This is the front started life as a piece of grey board, and had colour added using Distress inks...

Then I built up the background with various stencils and inks...

I made a front and a back cover...

Next I added some Clarity stamps using Archival ink.

Finally I added a couple of embellishments and sprayed it with Spray' n' Shine...

Here are some of the pages that I made today...



And this was one that I made at home on my Gelli plate.

Lots of my favourite stencils.


As you can imagine my folder is quite thick already....and I have just got a Clarity order with more new stencils....oh goody ....more pages to make....

Thanks for sharing your time with me, enjoy your evening and see you soon,

Love and hugs,

Jo. X
