Okay, tell me the truth…am I the only one that remembers that shampoo commercial whose slogan was ‘Don’t hate me because I have beautiful hair’? Or does this make me old? I mean let’s face it, I’m gettin’ up there, but I’m not as seasoned as Martha Stewart, the creator of today’s fantastic steal. I <3, adore, fancy and embrace 100% the border punches by Martha. The woman is seasoned not only in years, but in craftylicious goodness! In fact Martha’s punches are so phenomenal that I had to create something with each one of them that are our steal today!
The first layout that I created I grabbed the embossed zigzag punch.
Now I’m tellin’ ya. These punches work like buttah! Super smooth, crisp and clean cuts. Easy peasy to use! And I love the fact that the punches have a printed guideline so that you can precisely punch down the entire length of a 12×12 piece of paper!
I absolutely adore this photo that I took of my little trouble maker and thought the zig zag punch would make the perfect added touch for a photo mat. After all the crazy little dude keeps me zig zagging from one thing to the next…ALL DAY LONG!
Now for any of you that know me, you know that journaling is an essential part of any creation!
The next punch I used was the floral lace punch.
This punch screams sweetness. It screams, baby, girly, victorian, frilly, elegant and charming! I couldn’t resist using the punch to create a darling border for this baby card.
Now the final layout that I created using the arch lattice punch makes me absolutely giggle.
It’s just one of those stories in life that I had to preserve in a layout so that I would never forget it.
Just two days ago my cute 15 year old daughter was getting busy with my Xyron sticker maker….well….you know what? I’ll let you read the journaling. That’s why it’s there….right?
Don’t you have to agree that this border punch lends the perfect finishing touch to this graphically whimsical layout? Indeed!
Well there you have it! Martha. You’ve outdone yourself with the punches….you crafty little diva, you!
Don’t forget to stop by on Wednesday for our weekly sketch challenge!
Until then…as always…happy scrappin’!
