Today's steal, the Fiskars 3 in 1 Corner Squeeze Punch, is one amazing tool. After all, what's not to love about a triple-header option in one convenient handheld tool? It's right up my alley since there aren't easy to throw a handy-dandy tool with three different options in my crop bag.
I have to admit I may have had a little too much fun making cards this week. I started out with one idea, and then tried a little something else, and then it sort of morphed into another idea—ending up with five completely different cards. However, the one constant is just how well the Fiskars 3 in 1 Corner Squeeze Punch dressed up the corners of each of my cards.
First, I ended up using some of the scraps from last weeks Mid Week Mojo. I adore the little seashell type scallop and think it makes such a great addition!
Next, I used up a few more scraps from Studio Calico and mixed it up with some Basic Grey and My Mind's Eye 6x6 pads. I tried out the fun dotted corner punch and I like that it's a somewhat more masculine addition.
Then, of course I had to try out the tri-circle corner punch. I love how simple and delicate it is!
I guess the seashell design was really calling my name again, because I went back to that one and think it really compliments the feel of my card with the Lucky 8 punch rounded portion.
I finished things up with my favorite card of the bunch, and went back to the triple dot. Honestly can't say enough good about this punch and the fact that it's THREE IN ONE! Wow. Gotta love it!
So now you're probably asking what the sketch is for this week. Ummmm. Let's just say you get to choose! I'll draw up one however for anyone printing them out for future reference. And who knows, maybe you'll see one of the others as an official sketch next week.
