Favorite Things Friday~Punches


What’s your favorite paper crafting punch to use?  I have a few that I use more than others, but that doesn’t mean I want to get rid of the ones I don’t use that much.  Punches are easy to bring with when going to a crop or teaching a class.  I also love how easy they are for kids to use.  I love my Martha Stewart punches and tend to reach for them the most.   Here are just a few punches that some of the design team enjoy using.

Cigar Box Love!

I only collect a few things.. the #2, vintage frogs, vintage scissors, and cigar boxes… all of these items can be found in my studio.

I think the best way to display a boring old cigar box is to decorate it to match your room.  I took one of my boxes and did just that.  I used 3 of the mixed media banner shapes from Linnie Blooms.  I just painted all 3 of them pink.  I like how they added the texture that I needed for my box full of other crafty goodies.  I used a page from a Genuinely Jane Studios Banner book for the large banner shape on the cigar box, along with a few fun items from Amy Tangerine, Dear Lizzy, and my favorite Martha Stewart butterfly punch.  These are basically the colors on one side of my studio.. I love the soft colors near my desk and office area.. I have bright, fun, and cheery colors in my painting area of the studio.

Just Scor-It !

Today over  at Practical Scrappers they have a list of 9 things you can do with your scoring tools.  I use both the  Scor-Pal and Martha Stewart’s  Scoring board.   Here is the layout that I turned in to Practical Scrappers, please check out their site to view the other great ideas.  The team of crafters over at Practical Scrappers are so talented and I love their ideas for today’s post.

What have you done with your scor-pal lately?  I love to hear from you, so feel free to leave a comment any time.

My niece and nephew.
I created the back ground with my scor pal, then sanded the scored areas.

This is an old layout I did. I created the white score lines in the back ground, for texture and a denim jean look.
