Introducing Lily & Val Chalkboard Lettering Stencils! Create gorgeous pieces of chalkboard art featuring Valerie McKeehan's signature hand lettering and embellishments. Available from Plaid Crafts at Michaels!Friends, I’m so excited to announce this news I could burst! Hand lettered stencils have been a few years in the making and Lily & Val for Plaid stencils are HERE and available at Michaels!

When Plaid and FolkArt first contacted me about the possibility of stencils, I was overjoyed because this has been one of my most requested items of all time. Not to mention, to have the chance to work with such a well-respected company in the craft world like Plaid is surreal. It’s honestly humbling and another one of those moments when I think back to how I got started accidentally into this chalk art journey. The opportunities I’ve been given still make me pinch myself. I’m incredibly grateful.

Annnnd…. here they are! 4 sets of stencils each with a different feel and aesthetic, but what I love about them is that they are all coordinated. To make the chalkboard sign above, I used a combination of elements from all 4!

About the Stencils:

Each stencil set contains a full alphabet of my hand lettering and one of the sets contains two! In addition to the lettering, each one has a plethora of banners, embellishments, swirls, flowers, borders, and flourishes! I love using all of these things in my chalkboard designs and I love that they are available here in the stencils.

I’ve been having a blast experimenting with each style and embellishments and putting together different combinations! I was a bit intimidated at first by the layering of stencils to create the finished letters, but they’re super simple to use once I got started.

I can’t wait to show you how I’ve been using the stencils and some fun tips I have for making them look like chalk.

Even beyond chalkboard stenciling, they also work beautifully for wood and many other surfaces. When I say the possibilities are endless, it’s really true!

I will also be holding in-person stencil workshops at the Lily & Val Flagship Store so stayed tuned for those!
