Come on people, admit it, way in the back of those cupboards are some old letter stencils! I had forgotten all about mine until last night when I was puzzling over what letter dies I was going to use on a layout when I had a thought. Admittedly I was getting pretty tired .. read lazy.. so I couldnt be bothered getting out my Big Shot and cutting numbers and letters so this seemed like an easy solution. In my own defence I had just made my own DSP to use! Another great budget tip – its easy and your colours always match when you stamp your own!
Here is the Project Life card I made using an old stencil and my Project Life No.5 Jornaling Pen. I love these pens and they come in two thicknesses, the No. 1 is really fine for writing and the No. 5 is chunkier but still good for journaling.
And to see the whole page. I used two stamp sets for my DIY paper, Flower Patch and Love Sparkles.

Sorry I didn’t get this post up yesterday, life has this horrible way of jumping in front of me when I plan things. But here we are a day late : )
This is what I did with the 5 of the 6 pieces I showed you on Thursday. Somewhere along the line I misplaced one but I have found it now so maybe tomorrow…..
Back Row: A little Crazy Patched piece that I embossed using the Square Lattice folder (stamp from Bring on the Cake); A cool wee Patchwork square which I added pen stitching lines to (Stamp from Best of.. Christmas) ; Lastly another Patchwork inspired pattern (stamp from Petite pairs)
