Alexandra's strawberries

Hi there,

Wanted to share someone else's project today.

Alexandra (Hi, Alex!) from Germany sent me some photos of the labels she made for her strawberry jam jars using the punch art from this card.

Don't you love them?

What a great job, Alexandra! Thanks for sending them to me, I loved seeing what you made. And your swirls are fab...good for you.

I love the strawberries on the lids too - nice touch. Makes me want some jam on toast. And jam on a pikelet with cream. Oh, yum.

I wonder if there are pikelets in Germany?

I love how some paper and glue shared online can go across the oceans and inspire someone else and they send their paper and glue back across the oceans to say thanks!

Pretty cool, really.

I love the internet.

    Oh those labels are so fab Alexandra! Love them and love strawberries! Well done :o)

  2. Yes, well done, they are beautiful.

  3. I love great punch art so I am glad I found your blog - would you mind directing me to where you explain the making of the strawberry please?

    Taylor in Canada! :)

  4. Hi Taylor,
    Great to hear from you! I've been to Canada, it's a great country. As for the strawberries, the two punches I used are Sakura-A (strawberry - I trim the bottom to make it a little more rounded) and Momiji leaf for the green part at the top. Both are from the Carl brand. You can see them here. http://hankodesigns.com/Accessories/Punches/Punches.htm The size of the punches you use depends on the size of strawberry that you want. A good one is CP11G: Sakura-A (large) with CP2: Momiji leaf (medium).
    Hope all that helps. Enjoy your punching!

  5. PS. Hi again Taylor, Forgot to say the strawberries are featured in my first book too. Click on the Punch Art Fun 1 tab at the top of the blog to see more about the book. Bye for now!
