StencilGirl and Xyron Blog Hop Day 5

*****GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED*****


It is sad to say...but today is our last day in our StencilGirl/Xyron Blog Hop. We have truly enjoyed playing along with the girls at Xyron and hope to meet up with them again soon!

Today we have StencilGirl herself Mary Beth Shaw and Julie Snidle, our newest Creative Team member and artist who shares a studio with Mary Beth.

We also have a 
GIVEAWAY
 to celebrate our week with Xyron!

Mary Beth made us a piece of art that just screams "playful" to me. 
Want to see how she did it? Check out her blog!



Julie had so much fun watching Mary Beth in the studio playing with the Xyron products that she decided to play along! Check out Julie's new blog to see her project!


Please remember to check out the Xyron Blog to see what they did with StencilGirl stencils!

Are you ready for a 
GIVEAWAY???!!!

Today we are giving away BOTH of Mary Beth Shaw's books!
 The BRAND NEW Stencil Girl and Mary Beth's First Book Flavor for Mixed Media
which she will sign and throw in the EXCLUSIVE stencil she designed for Stencil Girl the book
 and 
not one BUT TWO stencils of your choice
to ONE lucky winner!!!


How do you enter??

  1. LOVE both of these!!! Loving the colors in Mary Beth's.....hope she is not offended if I say that it reminds me of a lovely jellyfish! Julie's reminds me of a cityscape bathed in sunlight and shadow. Gorgeous, both of them!
