Make More With Your Punches & Diecuts

Hello Faithful Crop Suey Readers!! It's Jenny here checking in with today's scrappy post. I want you to take a trip back, back to the days to the days when you first started scrapping. It could be back in high schol when you were cutting things out of magazines and using your glue stick to put together a fun little memory book. Or it could be back in the day when you had your first child and started creating one of those darn Baby Books every other perfect mom was doing in their spare time, wink. Think about some of those first tools you used. Do you remember deco edge scissors and the punches? Well, I do and I still use them. Especially my punches.

Punches seemed to fall out of favor a bit when the bigger, more lumpy embellishments hit the paper crafting market. They still hold a special part in my paper & glue heart. But, how to keep them current?!? I'm sure you are a bit like me and love a bit of lump on your pages. Pull out those punches and start layering them and popping them up.

For this first one I diecut kites, two for each one pictured here. Folded the top one down the midline and adhered it to another to give my kites & page some lift off...

For this sample, I first stamped and then punched my stars. I adhered their centers askew and curled up the edges. Like so...

Love me some butterflies. They were layered and stapled at the midline here. These ones look almost as if they will just flutter away...

More stars here. For these ones I actually used 3 stars, all different patterns and adhered the backs to each other...

Now, these are lumpy...

Circles are great for flower centers. But you just HAVE to pop them up (same method as the above stars)...

What are YOU going to do with your punches?
