In loving memory of Christy RiopelToday we are looking back to the Fall 2015 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine in our weekly feature #RememberingChristy.  A timeless layout designed by Christy Riopel with a gentle reminder to Cherish the Little Things. This layout was featured in Christy’s regular column called “Tool Junkie”.

Using Your Dies To Make A Stencil
1. Cut a piece of cardstock that is larger than your die. The more border around your die the better. Cut the die out of the centre of the cardstock.Spellbinders Dies turned into stencils | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine
2. On a palette, mix a little embossing paste and some acrylic paint. With a palette knife, scrape the tinted paste over the stencil.Spellbinders Dies turned into stencils | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine
3. Lift your cut stencil and let the paste dry, or dry with a heat tool.Spellbinders Dies turned into stencils | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine

Have a wonderful Saturday everyone.

In loving memory of Christy Riopel – we continue to raise money for the Christy Riopel Art Scholarship. To date – one scholarship has been given through The Boys & Girls club of Calgary.
