Happy Friday!!! This weekend could not come soon enough for me! I intend to get lots of scrapbooking in. I got an early start by creating this layout last night. The pictures were taken while at a crop with friends, laughing, joking and off course a little scrapping.
My goal was to use a single tool to create most of the elements on my layout. I decided to pull out an old paper punch by McGill Creativity (circa 2003?!). The design is called “Mini Round Envelope” so I am guessing it is supposed to be used to create envelopes. But, in my opinion the mini envelopes are so small I can’t imagine using them for anything. When I purchased the punch, many moons ago, my plan was to use it to create my own flowers.
I randomly punched “flowers” out of a piece of craft cardstock. The negative paper was used to create a unique background for my layout, while the positive punched out shapes were used to create a flower embellishment.
So, what can you do with some of your older tools? How many ways can you put them to work on a single layout?
