Julia's April Stencil Release, Including the Stencil of the Month!


Hi, all! It's that time again - for my monthly stencil release and announcement of my April Stencil of the Month.* Woo hoo!

Spring may just be starting, but when you're designing products, you have to work at least a few seasons ahead. After all, we cookiers always appreciate having plenty of time to plan.  So, as you can see, I'm already onto summer stencils with my new "Summer Fun" and "Bon Voyage" Prettier PlaquesTM sets

New April Stencils Large

Let's talk about "Summer Fun" for a bit  . . . first and foremost, it's my April Stencil of the Month, so if you haven't yet joined my Stencil of the Month Club (which, BTW, brings GREAT savings*), "Summer Fun" may just be your perfect incentive. It looks great in one or two colors, but it can also carry off five or six hues quite splendidly! And, if you want to mix and match messages, that's, of course, possible too! (Note: The "Fun in the Sun" message, pictured below in the back, will be released as part of another set, as well as separately, next month.)


In addition to these two summer sets, this month's release includes a novel, and infinitely flexible, "Happy Birthday" set, pictured above (upper left). Along with the damask background, frame, masking piece, and "Happy" message, the set includes the following sheet of numbers so you can customize this plaque to any birthday girl or boy of any age!


As for my "Mother" set, pictured above (lower right), it was actually released back in March. But, seeing as Mother's Day is on the horizon, I wanted to feature it again, though this time in full color! (Note: I used four colors below: light pink, maroon, lime green, and a darker spring green. Also, the frame shown below is the one from my "Give Thanks" set, just to demonstrate, once again, how easy it is to mix and match with my stencils!)


So that completes my April release! I hope you love these stencils as much as I loved designing them for you! Don't forget: All of them, and many more, can be purchased on my partner Stencil Ease's site. If you have questions about the Stencil of the Month Club, please see the note at the very end of this post. And if you have any ordering questions, please direct them to

Until next time, enjoy this sneak peek of some stencils yet to come!
