Hi, all, my stencil life is finally kicking back into high gear after finally signing a new contract in June, six months after starting the contract renegotiation with my partner . . . (what a process). This means I was recently able to begin development of my new JULIA-brand stencil-and-cutter kits. They will now have a video component along with the stencils and cutters that will allow you to make both 2-D and 3-D projects with these same tools. In fact, I’ve just completed the design of the first three kits, so I’ll have my nose to the grindstone over the next couple of months with testing them and making all of the cookies needed for an end-of-August video shoot. If all goes as planned, the first of these kits should launch in mid-September, just in time for Halloween. I’m pretty excited about these kits . . . if I do say so myself, the morphable 2-D-to-3-D concepts are pretty clever, and the range of tools in each kit means there’s tons of design versatility. I hope you love them as much as I loved designing them for you!

While you wait expectantly for these kits (or so I hope ), I’ll be showering you with stencil sales over the next few weeks. Many are in the form of quick pop-ups so you’ll want to be on high alert! Mark your calendars, because here are the first two pop-ups . . .
