I love flourishes! It was such a happy surprise when I found these in the Superstore. I love making my own flourishes using jewels or dimensional paint. This is the perfect tool to help me create the exact look I want. My favorite thing about the Jewel Templates is that I can use them directly on my page without having to fussy-cut them from a clear plastic sheet. Highly recommend this fun (and addicting!) tool.
I can customize various types of swirls and flowes all around my layout pages and paper projects with perfect spacing in between. Then I use pearls, bling, buttons, brads, eyelets. I can even use liquid paint. A MUST have in everyone's basic tool kit!
I was very pleased with these stencils. There are 2 in a pack, & seeing as how I already have quite a few Imaginisce adhesive jewels, as well as some Recollections self-adhesive bling, but didn't have any design stencils, I thought I'd try them out. it's an excellent way to use the bling I already had, & actually have a nice flourish design as the end result! I believe they''ll also save me $ in the long run, since I won't need to buy tons of bling designs at $4 or more a piece. I found they were easy to use, also. I merely placed the stencil where I wanted the flourish, marked each spot with a pen, removed the stencil, then applied the bling on each marked spot.
I love these ... I would like to have all of them ... I have thousands of rhinestones and I use thousands of rhinestones every year so this is a great shortcut for me ... with these it takes me half the time to arrange them on the page and you have much more freedom with how and where they end up ... and you have none of the "ugly" glue between them like you get with the store-bought shapes ...
