Your Club Leader
Hello! I am Nancy Westfall from The Colorful Cookie Studio. I am passionate about designing, cutting, and using culinary stencils. I am a teacher at heart, which means there’s nothing more enjoyable to me than sharing my knowledge and helping others learn. I have been sharing my knowledge with other cookiers through Facebook and my blog for almost two years. I am always looking to make new cookie friends and love to learn new things. If you love decorating sugar cookies and stencils as much as I do, you have come to the right place!
What People Are Saying About Nancy
“I owned a Silhouette machine for about 10 years without ever opening the box. I am a senior citizen and was convinced I wouldn't be able to learn how to use it. I was so wrong! I met Nancy (virtually) and she gave me the confidence I needed to learn how to use my machine. I don't think I have ever had a teacher as patient and encouraging as she is. In no time, I was designing and cutting my own stencils.”
“Nancy is a super star! She has gone above and beyond spending time, energy and dedication; she answers the simplest questions with respect and kindness, while encouraging self learning. Her hands on teaching style, easy to follow tutorials, and simple directions help her online followers to be successful in cutting stencils and using their machines for various projects. She is supportive, patient, kind, knowledgeable, truly amazing and inspiring!”
“I have learned so much and benefited greatly from all of Nancy’s hard work and dedication to those who want to be able to design and cut their own stencils. I am now able to create and cut my own stencils whenever I need them, which is a lot of fun and a great time saver for those of us who enjoy making decorated cookies. I have learned so much about making stencils from Nancy Westfall! Thank you Nancy for all you’ve done for me and the stencil group!"
“Not only do Nancy’s stencils make your cookies look gorgeous and give them that wow factor, they make cookie decorating so quick and easy. I love that they are on trend and easy to incorporate with any style of cookie I’m decorating.”
The Frosted Swirl Bake Shop
“I cannot say enough good things about The Colorful Cookie! So incredibly helpful with getting me on the road to using my Silhouette Cameo! From basic knowledge to advanced help, Nancy was fabulous! I would still be staring blankly at the machine without her help!”
Andy Kay’s Cookies
“On my first attempt, I created a standard plastic stencil and went right on to create a screen stencil. I am confident that, as I learn how to create more complex projects, Nancy Westfall will be there with advice, reassurance, and humor to help me succeed.”
Karen Renfro Smith
Frequently Asked Questions
I work with students at all levels. The introductory materials within the program will give you step by step instructions to use each cutting machine. This information can also help you decide which machine is right for you. You’ll be ready to jump right into the program, and I’ll be there with you to make sure you don’t get lost!
The teacher in me will tell you that you never stop learning. Even though I consider myself to be an expert when it comes to culinary stencils, I still learn new things all the time (which I will of course be passing along to all my club members). Within the club, we will get to advanced techniques if these are of interest to you and you’ll have direct access to me for any help or questions you have along the way.
I will be teaching you how to use the most recent Cricut and Silhouette machines and the design programs that come with them, Cricut Design Space and Silhouette Studio.
If you no longer wish to be part of the club, you are free to cancel anytime. Because it is a monthly rate, the cancellation will go into effect at the end of the month in which you cancel.
I answer questions every day from people just like you. People who need answers to specific questions to complete a design they are working on. The topics that will be covered in the club will be in specific order and step by step. No guessing about what to do next. The topics, pace, and perks of The Colorful Cookie Club will be well worth the investment, no matter your current skill level.
You will save time and money, and earn yourself a reputation as a unique cookie decorator! Stencils can be costly, and you have to order them ahead of time and hope they’re the right size for your cookie and what you had in mind when you ordered the stencil. It’s also much easier to decorate a batch of cookies when you have multiple copies of the same stencil, so knowing how to design and cut your own stencils will be more cost effective than buying duplicates. You’ll also save time when you don’t have to wait on the mail carrier to deliver your stencils. You’ll quickly be able to recoup the initial cost of the machine and stencil materials and you won’t have to pay for shipping on every stencil you need!
As long as you are a member of The Colorful Cookie Club, you will be able to log in and watch the videos anytime you like.
I have spent many MANY hours learning how to use different machines and their design software. I taught myself how to design and cut stencils. I have been sharing my knowledge with other “cookiers” both on Facebook and on my blog for nearly two years. I have a background in teaching and did it as a profession for 20 years. Teaching people comes naturally to me and I love doing it… just as much as I love designing and cutting stencils!
The cost of the membership is $14.99 a month.
