Now that all my swap partners have received I can safely share with you the things I have been working on.  All of these are stencils that I have made myself from artwork.
I am especially proud of the cassette one as it was the fiddliest stencil ever to cut.

Wow..those are amazing.
Started off looking great but as I went down the page each stencil was more insanely impressive than the last! Did you use freezer paper?

Aww thanks Smiley
Yes all of them were achieved with the wonders of freezer paper.  I bought 4 rolls of the stuff back from America this summer, I'm already starting to worry about what I'll do when I run out and I haven't even used half of the first on yet LOL

I saw it at Wal-Mart yesterday (in my small Alberta town)  I bought mine at the local grocery store awhile ago.

I'm looking to send my Step-Sister's Choice quilt to a new home.  If you're interested in swapping for fabric/scrapbooking supplies, send me a PM.

"Do you know if there is anywhere in Canada you can get freeze paper?"

There must be. I'm Canadian and when I found out about this awesome stuff it turned out we had it in the pantry! XD
My bet is we got it from Dominion or something. Superstore prehaps? Wal-Mart should have it too.


love them all!
But that second one - it's by an artist who does a lot of drawings, isn't it?
I was trying to google them the other day and couldn't remember their name Sad do you know it?
(Or am I horribly mistaken? ^^; )

edit: So apparently it's Kurt? But what would I search for along with Kurt? :S

I believe the last name is Halsey.
A wonderful artist indeed.

Can you post the stencil to the cassette shirt? I want to make a neato design for my cassette holder (I'm not technologically slow, I'm just old school I swear!) Much appreciated!

This is the size I got it at, so sorry if its not big enough.  I just choose the fit to page size option when I print it off Wink  Looking forward to seeing it on your cassette holder. Smiley
