Sending oodles of love and hugs..

 
So I had a great day today spending most of my day in my craft room and actually do som crafting too ! I took out my box of waltzing mouse stamps and made it a waltzing mouse sunday. 
This card was made using this weeks sketchchallenge of freshly made sketches . I just loved the sketch and think I will join them more often now I got my mojo back again. Sketches are always fun to work with , the just give yu that little kick off to start creating you need sometimes.
I found so much fun challenges so I decided to combine some today..normally I don't do that, I think each challenge deserves it's own project but this just came along the way..so I also enter this card to the Curtain Call challengeblog wich has the theme  smootches  and the Waltzingmouse Fanatics challenge Blog  because I used two differend sets of waltzingmouse stamps.

Making my own stencils aka masks

 
As you might have noticed I found my way into the artjournalling and mixed media. One of the  things you use for this is a mask or stencil . There are a lot of differend ones from a lot of differend brands. Hard to choose from and if you want t build a nice collection of them it will cost you a lot of money. I thought this can be done cheaper and I am the very lucky owner of a silhouette cameo , so why not cut my own masks right? So I tried cutting them from pagediveders but didn't really like the results , it was not sturdy enough. So now used laminate pouches wich I had run through the laminating machiene..the laminator..and the stencils turn out awsome! the picture shows just a few of the ones I cut out this afternoon..they are nice and sturdy and just as thick as the stencils that you buy in the shop. whoo hoo the laminatepouches I use are very cheap only a few euro's at the Action ( kind of dollarstore ) and the cameo settings I use are knife 9, speed 1 and thickness / pressure33. I won't be able to use this knife for cutting paper again but who cares! I got some great stencils now..
