SCRAP Super Find

If you are doing a DIY wedding near Portland, OR, you don't want to miss out on the amazingness that is SCRAP ACTION. This ship is a thrift store of craft materials and if you're wanting a creative wedding, this is a must-go place.

And if you're still designing your invites, you won't want to miss out on this week's Super Find. Next to the front door they have rolls (some pretty big) of sticker paper. So not individual stickers but a ROLL of sticker paper. The one I brought home was about 5 inches wide and transparent. So I decided to whip up some save the dates.

All you need is a stencil, a sharpie, some cardstock, transparent paint (I used fluid Golden Quin Magenta), and foam make up sponge, and there you have it. If you didn't want all the by-hand look, print out some simple cards with the names and date on them and then add the transparent & over the top. There are a large range of stencils out there and anything is possible when it comes to working with transparent layers.
