Pack a Punch

Want to see what two punches can do? These are some flowers I created using these two punches and some creativity. The punches are EK Success punches. I like to call this flower my 4-2-2 punch flowers. I punch out four of these, then two and then two small flowers and then pinch and twist and then adhere them together. In the center, I added some type of bead or pearl. I even made a vellum one. I created a flower spray for the front of a mini album I am working. I hope to complete that project soon, so check back for the finished creation. Next to creating minis, handmade flowers has to be second in line.

Are you Thrifty-Crafty?

Here is a recent thrifty treasure that I found at a local Thrift Shop in my hometown. Don't you just love to go thrift store hopping? I can't wait to alter this beauty of a find.

A Friendly Layout

Recently I shared a layout on my UTube channel that showcases a flower designed using one of my punches. The layout was about a scrappy friend of mine who takes great pictures(I mean she looks good in photos) I used the DCWV line that is called Black Currant. It is a gorgeous paper collection of purples, blacks, beige and some foiled paper. I also used my Cricut as well as my beloved Gypsy to design the frame around the picture. The "enjoy life" title I cut using my Cricut Expression and the Graphically Speaking cartridge. The flowers were very easy to make so check out my new YT channel to see how they go together. My newest Cricut cartridge, "Just Because Cards" appears to have a little learning curve but I hope to post a project with it soon. Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope you enjoy the project.
