Today’s layout has a simple photo but it is a great layout to show you How to Emboss with stencils. This adds lots of texture and is super satisfying to make.
I printed some elements from Lori’s Kiss Me collection and printed a photo of 4 by 6 inches. My layout is going to be a small one, about 5.5 by 8.5 inches.
How to emboss with stencils:
Lay your stencil onto your cardstock. Tape into place if needed. Apply Embossing paste on top of the stencil and even out. Lift off stencil carefully
Choose your embossing powders. You can use just one color, or mix a few colors to create your own color!
Sprinkle your embossing powder onto the wet embossing paste on the paper. Since I was mixing a few different colors, I used a scrap piece of paper as a spoon here to scoop out my embossing powders.
Now carefully heat set the embossing powder and enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Love the stenciling! What a great photo!!!
Thank you Lorrie!
The weather here in Upstate NY is very cold. I can’t wait for Spring! Lovely scrap page!
Spring has to be around the corner right??
I’m from Spain, and here it’s kind of cold (but it’s not bad!) Love your tutorial 🙂
I love that you said cold but not bad!
I live in Florida, so what can I say but that it’s beautiful here!
Enjoy a little of the sunshine for me won’t ya?
Lovely layout and a really cool technique!! 🙂
I love the texture you added, what medium do you used for that?!
I used a thin layer of embossing paste and then embossing powders on top of it 🙂
It is cold. Won’t get abot 10F. We have over a foot of snow on the ground. It’s been there for two week or more (seems like forever). Just had another inch added last night. Supposed to get into the 30s and 40s by the weekend. I can’t wait for spring to start showing up. Love your page.
It’s raining here and melting the snow away. Can’t wait for spring! Love your cute layout!
Such a lovely layout–beautiful detail.
This is just beautiful!
Fabulous art work! Love the masking and the cute picture of both of you!
There’s so much to love on your layout! Thanks for the inspiration.
I’m from Texas where we just had 3 days of snow, 2 absolutely gorgeous days in the high 60s and now it is turning cold again. Thanks for sharing your project!
Love your pretty addition of texture! I live in Oregon and am actually stuck at home because we had a foot and a half of snow. A good day to blog hop and make Valentine cookies!
Cookies sound yum!!
Here in my neck of the woods (Western Colorado), we’ve been stuck with a depressing, drizzling rain for days. Just awful.
We are in the midwest too…..so much snow! The kids were out for a whole week of school. We are ready for spring!
This turned out gorgeous! Love the texture you added and the hybrid way you used Lori’s digital files. 🙂
The weather in Minnesota is freezing. We will not get above zeor today. Right now it is -4 with a windchill of -17. Way to many freezing days this winter. But the goodside is it is very sunny today.
It’s cold and snowing here in Ohio, my favorite kind of weather 🙂
Here in CA the sun is shining and I am thanking God that I no longer live in snow country! Love your project, especially the stencil work……..I just took a class about stencils…..
Lovely layout.. here its kinda cold with slight drizzles
oh dear the weather! Will it ever be spring??? We have several feet of snow on the ground and we continue to be in the negative numbers in the mornings. I live in the upper midwest US, in Minnesota. 🙂
Our weather is kinda drizzly and overcast, but happy because this might put a little dent in the drought here. Love the layout and tutorial. Thanks so much for sharing!
Single digits here in Ohio, but the sun is shining!
We have a winter storm warning…and school’s closed tomorrow!
This I so SWEET! Love it!!!
Have a wonderful day,

Nice layout – great balance and just enough color. Here in Oregon we are recovering from the worst snowstorm in years (it rarely snows here – we had eleven inches and everything shut down for three days). Its twenty degrees warmer today, and the snow is melting!
I love this project!
Thanks for a chance to win
Here where I live, Hot Hot Hot!!!!!
