Today I'm here to challenge Fancy Pants Designs fans to USE YOUR PUNCHES!! Ever since I became hooked on using my Silhouette, my punches have sat in their baskets collecting dust. I thought it time to utilize some of my "forgotten" stash and put these awesome tools to work on a Project Life spread! I used mostly papers and embellishments from the bright and cheery What A Wonderful Day Collection.
What A Wonderful Day This Way/ What A Wonderful Day Reminder/ What A Wonderful Day Wondrous/ What A Wonderful Day Astounding/ What A Wonderful Day Awe-Inspiring/ What A Wonderful Day Remarkable/ What A Wonderful Day Outstanding/ What A Wonderful Day Swell/ What A Wonderful Day Terrific/ What A Wonderful Day Strips/ What A Wonderful Day Sticker Fundamentals/ What A Wonderful Day Label Stickers/ What A Wonderful Day Cream Alpha Stickers/ What A Wonderful Day Patterned Photo Frames/ What A Wonderful Day Ephemera Pack/ What A Wonderful Day Button Set/ Etcetera 6 x 6 Pad/ Swagger Label Stickers
On the left side of my spread, I began by using a border punch to create lots of little "confetti" in various sizes. I scattered these bits about my title block to add some color to the solid background. In the two blocks below that I used border punches to create some fun accents from solid papers. In the bottom right corner I punched two sizes of circles and sewed through them to create a cute little banner. I added a fun element to the middle of the banner by punching another large circle directly on the 4" x 6" card. I backed this with some patterned paper and then added a small word sentiment sticker.
On the right side of my spread I used numerous punches as well. I incorporated a fun tone-on-tone technique with stitching to create my own patterned background by added several punched white arrows in rows on the white 4" x 6" card. I then layered my photo over them and added a small punched ticket to hold my subtitle. One of the center 3" x 4" cards I created holds a small punched circle border. Finally in the bottom right, I added another punched border and some more punched "confetti".
Here are a few close-ups of some of the punched elements in action . . .
Thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope you challenge yourself to use your own stash of punches!!
