How are you today? Getting some time to craft in there somewhere, I hope. Actually that reminds me of my new scrapping solution - I've taken photos and I'll post soon.
(My photos were sitting in the cupboard and I wanted them in albums, so I've been trying to work out how to get them there. Anyway, I've changed things around and so far it's working, which is good - finally! It's been a process to figure it out, that's for sure)
Today I thought I'd share a list of punches I'm calling: "They're cool, they're different, they're fab - thanks, Mr Sullivan".
The list could also be entitled: "Fun new punches from Sullivans"
The list could also be entitled: "Get 'em"
Okay, let's go...
A little daisy - daisies are good in all shapes and I'm loving this size and that it's easy to punch.
The little ones are notorious for being hard and the lever rocks - so much easier!
The pacifier - cute. Showed this one on baby cards recently. Looks gorgeous in a faux stamp on the front of your envelope too.
Really, it won't get tonnes of use, but when it does, it'll be fab. A lot of people don't like buying Christmas punches because they only get used once a year, but I hammer mine at that time, so they're totally worth it. I'd say my CP2: Holly from Carl - Green sized Holly from Sullivans - would be one of my most used...ever, and it's a Christmas one.
Don't be afraid, people, don't be afraid. Geometrics have their place (and a very good place they have too), but specific, themed punches have their place too.
And it's cute.
And it looks cute in a faux stamp. Honestly, cute. It's worth the bucks.
How about a pom pom flower?
Included this one because it's a flower (love those all the time), but this one's a funky version for when you need a flower that's not an obvious flower.
Maybe this could be used on a boy page or card. You know who you are...you have all boys at your house, but you're a girl and you desperately want to include some flowers somewhere! Try this one, it might just cut the mustard.
I also think on that subject that it's okay to put flowers on boy pages if you want to. You're a girl and you're telling the story and you like flowers, so stick 'em on there if you want.
Fish symbol - nice.
A geometric shape that has lots of uses. A favourite would be bunny ears. Fab bunny ears, right here.
I put this one in here in green, but I need it in all sizes - just clarifying that.
Scalloped circle because you can never go wrong.
They're needed in all sizes too.
Bookfest is on this weekend too - and it's in the same building as the Scrap Convention, what a bonus. Good place to check to check for old dictionaries, music paper, altases - things like that. I worked the show last year and then spent at least at hour at Bookfest poking through the bits and pieces. Phew, big day, but it was good. Entry is free to Bookfest too.
