Why do we love to buy stencils so much? They are everywhere–in all the papercraft shops and shows, seducing us with their useful, versatile or just plain drop-dead gorgeous designs. They are relatively cheap to buy and you can store lots at home so easily as they lie beautifully compact and flat.
I have 111. I just love the alphabets, the ultra-versatile dots and squares, the arty silhouettes and all those wonderful other shapes. Please don’t ask me how many I have used, but I definitely INTEND to use them all…one day 🙂
After counting my stencils for you, I vowed to not buy anymore. That was until I went onto Facebook and found a link to Tim Holtz latest stencils – now I need 16 more as these ones are to die for. Whilst watching the video he also recommended a Distress Ink colour that I didn’t have. That was followed by a visit to my favourite online scrapbook Store and an $80 purchase later (there were some amazing must have specials and a few brilliant new items) … I wondered, how did that happen??
So, I’ve had to include Tim’s video so you can be tempted too…
How many stencils do you own? I’ve been honest with you, now it is time for you to come clean. In the comments section below please tell us how many stencils you own and a random winner will be announced same time next month. Here is a picture of the prize pack to tempt you.
Thanks for playing along!
