The Crafter's Workshop. I've been using Crafter's Workshop stencils for a long time and loving them. Julie's designs for them are fantastic and feature her signature patterns and style.
Here's the stencil I got to work with; the Wedding Ring stencil:
I loved this pattern as soon as I saw it. It's traditional feel of a classic quilt pattern mixed with Julie's modern, graphic patterns is a perfect combo. You might recall a post from the holidays in 2010 where I made some cookies with stamped images for Julie's Handmade Holidays blog hop. Well, she asked if I might be able to employ this stencil on a cookie project and I was happy to oblige!
I started with my favorite shortbread recipe cut into some simple shapes I thought would complement the pattern in the stencil - circles and squares:
Now there is plenty more to see! Julie has organized a very creative group to share more projects with this cool stencil - and if you leave a comment on her blog you can win one. Here's the list in case you've lost track.
