Well, as usual, I have a customer to thank for an AMAZING idea! Kaylene asked if we could use the Stencil tool under the Shapes menu to create some patterns for rhinestone applications and the answer is, “You becha!” This will open up even more possibilities for creating unique and interesting patterns to fill your shapes or even just letters. The video shows just a few examples. The important thing to remember with this tool, is that you need to weld the shape after you leave the Stencil Smart Bar to remove the stenciling lines. Otherwise, it’s a very easy process!

Thanks, Kaylene!
