Die Cuts & Border Punches

Our assignment over at 3 Scrappy Boys this month was to showcase our border punches and diecuts. I do love my border punches and enjoy using my Cricut, so this was fun!!

First up...using my border punch to make a layered, fancy border. Easy Peasy!


I punched a few layers with my apron lace punch, even the base of the card. I also just love those Jillibean Soup canvas flowers!


I used a Martha Stewart punch for this project (found it 60% off at Michaels!!) along with flowers that I cut with my Cricut. I do this alot, cut descending sized flowers, layer them and add them to a project!



Altered projects are a great way to use a big ol' button that you might be hesitant to use on a layout. I know I am, I like layers on my layouts but sometimes they just don't lie right in my albums.


Border punches and your diecutting machine are great ways to add a unique touch to your projects! And lookie what I got in the mail this week...Baker's Twine!!!!!!!!!


I got this sampler pack from The Twinery and I can't wait to play with it! I hope you all have a great Friday! Thanks for stopping by!!
