Crafty breakthrough with stencils & Brother ScanNCut

Hello crafty friends!

I own a lot of stencils.  They are one of the "the" most useful things a papercrafter can have.  Not only are they inexpensive, they lend themselves to lots of techniques.  One you may have never thought of before is making a background "die" out of them.  Now I don't mean converting a stencil into a metal die, but using the magic of the Brother Scan N Cut (another invaluable tool I own and use frequently) to create the electronic version.  You might immediately recognize some of these stencil patterns in the photo.  If you don't -  not to worry I have linked to them below.

I've created my part 1 video.  You can watch it on this post or here on in HD on my channel.  If you haven't subscribed to my channel I would greatly appreciate you considering it now.  I have an upcoming giveaway (a substantial one) that I will publish there and I'd HATE for you to miss out!





Below I'm sharing the product list from today's tutorial.  Please note that the star and moon stencil is not (as far as I could tell) available for individual sale.  It came from this Hero Arts card kit.
