We’re back today with more projects using fantastic coordinated pattern paper by Graphic 45 Papers. Who doesn’t love paper that coordinates so beautifully together and just as much that it adds a polished touch to your project!

Our design team had plenty of fun patterns and holiday themes to use for our July catalog release and we really love how great they coordinate from page to page. As you can see from today’s project samples they do compliment each other.

STM_PYL_banner

We are already on Stencil Thursday during our hop with Pink Your Life stamps and this week is flying by so quickly with all the inspiration in videos and blog posts, but still have more!!

Today we are sharing a favorite tool that our Dreamweaver Stencils fans know about, but it is also quite a great tool for all those stampers out there. These two videos by Nicoletta Zanella show how much fun the Picasso Stencil/Shield is to use for stenciling alongside Pink Your Life stamped images!

The Picasso Shield/Stencil is an invaluable tool for stamp and stencil fans alike!

Vicky Papaioannou at Clips n Cuts blog is an art journal and card maker extraordinaire  She lives in Greece, surrounded by the incredible Mediterranean Sea which inspired her latest journal page using some of our beach themed products!

She has a splendid video to watch with great detail for your inspiration into a porthole view journal page design. (plus we have to admit we’re in love with her gorgeous accent!)

Stop by her blog post today for more on this fabulous project.

Vicky used our Seashells stamps set, included template and die set, plus the Beach 5-Jar Embossing Kit for her project. We just love what she did with them.

Steam Pumpkin Gears Frame by Debbie Cole

We are adding painting to our Stencil Thursday post because well, we are still having a great time at the Heart of Ohio Tole painting convention. With all of our wonderful stencil we have from Dreamweaver Stencils and Fran’s metal stencils there are plenty to add accents to your painted projects.

Stencils can add wonderful texture in any of your painted decor pieces like Debbie Cole’s Steam Pumpkin Frame shown above. The gears in the background create a fabulous depth and mat the floating painted Steam Pumpkin image amazingly!
