Stenciled Pre-Class Gallery Post...

I know it's been forever since I posted anything...geez, I wish I had more time to work on my blog! But having started working a little over three months ago has made so much less time for anything else. However, I'm working in a craft store which I LOVE LOVE LOVE!!

Now my hobby and work are kind of intertwined. Often, I will do things at home thinking about how it will help me in my job. For instance, this "STENCILED" class...I've been seeing stencils getting more & more popular, so I thought it would be great if I could learn some techniques & creative ideas for using them (since I bought some and have never really used them...) Hence, signing up for this class. I don't know if I'll have the time to participate in making the cards during the class (Friday I might be able to a little bit, but Saturday is my church day and I work Sunday & Monday) but hopefully I can benefit from the information and put it to good use later and get some good samples for the store.

Anyway, here's just a couple cards I made for a class I'm teaching in a week about chalkboard stamping techniques. I just loved how they turned out. I LOVE the chalkboard look! I know it's been around awhile now, but it's still so popular here, and I just can't get tired of it!

The stamps are all from the new Chalkboard Love set from Simon Says Stamp.
