Stencil Material using Samantha's Shapes

Have you ever tried Silhouette's new Stencil Material?  If not, you are in for a treat!  Guiseppa here and I want to show you how easy it is to use with Samantha's Silhouette Shapes to create your own stencils from Silhouette Shapes!.


Open up our Silhouette Software and select your shape.  I chose Samantha's Fancy Frame.  




Next, I made my shape larger to fit my whole page.  You can either click on the image and drag the corners until you reach your desired size or use the Scale Window and change the dimensions there.  


Now, cut the amount of Stencil Material you want to use.  I chose 12 x 12 because of the shape I picked.  Next, I laid it down on my cutting mat with the glossy side up, paper side down and loaded it into my Cameo.


I then selected the cut icon and picked Stencil Material in my material type window.  Adjust your blade, hit send to Silhouette and watch it cut.


Now, peel off.  Be careful when doing so, so that you don't tear the stencil.  


Lay your stencil down on your paper and simply mist.  The Stencil Material has an adhesive back, making nice to keep in place on your layout.  



This is what my projected ended up looking like.  I wanted to something a little different, so I cut out the center of my stenciled image.





I also used Samantha's Summer Lovin' Collection from Carta Bella!  Thanks for stopping by and give the Stencil Material a try.  Samantha has so many fun shapes in the Silhouette Store that would make wonderful stencils!

Summertime Bookmarks by Diana


Hello! Diana Fisher here with you today. I don't know about you, but something about summertime calls for a paper book. The other nine months out of the year I am all set with my Kindle, but in the sun, I want paper. 

Since I don't always read paperbacks, I didn't have a bookmark last month when I stocked up on books. I've been using a Travis Hafner Cleveland Indians baseball card to keep my page. Obviously loaned to me by my eight-year-old son.


Today I decided no more baseball card (sorry, Travis). Using the perfect summer collection, Summer Lovin' from Carta Bella by Samantha Walker, I whipped up these three bookmarks for my summer reading. (Yes, three. I tend to read more than one at a time, and I will also lose one at some point.)


To get started, I gathered my trimmer, a tag punch, twine and the Summer Lovin' papers and stickers. If you do not have a tag punch, you can also use a regular hole punch (as seen above).

I started with a two inch wide strip cut from a piece of scrap paper. Because I chose a piece of scrap paper, the length ended up being 6.75".  It is up to you how long you would want your bookmark to be.

After I had the bookmarks cut, I started layering stickers and designs onto my bookmarks. At the end, I threaded the hole at the top with twine.


At first I loved the flamingo, but the more I worked with them, I am loving the green one in the middle. The one on the end is perfect for camping reading, I think.


Thanks for stopping today to see my bookmark tutorial. What a great way to use your scrap paper and those stickers that might never make it onto a layout.
