Using Amplify with Stencils

Boys Will Be Boys – Scrapbook Layout

by Katharina Frei

Scrapbook layout featuring a "boys will be boys" theme made using Amplify! in a splattered pattern by Katharina Frei.

Structure versus chaos – I love to use this contrast on many of my scrapbooking layouts. On today’s scrapbooking page, I am showing a well-structured foreground versus a chaotic, mixed media background I created with Amplify.

Skill: Beginner
Time: 1 hour



Step 1

I started with a set of BoBunny papers and a tiny star stencil. Amplify’s consistency is not as thick as other dimensional pastes. Therefore you have to carefully press the stencil down while applying it to avoid smudging. However, for this “chaotic” background, smudges were welcome! 🙂


Step 2

After gently removing the stencil, partially heat the stars to give some more dimension than others and let everything dry completely for 1 hour minimum.


Step 3

I arranged my photos and pieces of paper in a rectangular order right in the center of my background. To finish the arrangement off, I added some stamping.





  • BoBunny – patterned papers
  • Sewing machine
  • Black thread
  • heat gun
  • Stamps of choice
  • Printed photos, memorabilia and notes
