Circle Punch Cards

Lately I have been trying to "take control" of my paper crafting area by organizing and cleaning things up a bit. One of the things I did was look through my scrapbook and card making magazines. There were some that I knew I would not look through again and others I wanted to keep. A few Papercraft magazines had one or two ideas I wanted to use, but I didn't want to keep the magazine for just for that. So, I decided I would CASE them.

I took a picture of the examples I CASEd. Both ideas come from the Paper Crafts magazine and use Circle Punches.

This is the first card I made. Isn't it hideous?!? I thought I would show it to you anyway....but not in the large picture version. LOL

I really like the card in black and white, but I didn't want to copy it exactly. Thus the pink and brown. Doesn't really work for some reason. Oh well.


Stamps: Everyday Flexible Phrases, Stitched BG
Paper: Close to Cocoa, Bohemia Line Designer Paper (My Mind's Eye)
Ink: Whisper White
Accessories: Prima Flower, Vintage Copper Brad, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch

4.5 x 4.5 card

Isn't this next card pretty? The designer paper and brads really caught my eye.

Well, this is the card I made. The Circle Punches I used ranged from 1/2" to 1 3/8". I used glue dots to adhere the circles with the brads. I didn't need to use dimensionals because the brads are fairly thick and add dimension automatically. By the way, I found these brads at Dollarama in a package of nine for $1. When I was at Michael's the other day, I noticed that they had some of the same brads (by makingmemories) for about $4 - $5 (Sorry, can't remember the exact price).


Stamps: Polka Dots and Petal, Alphabet Set (All Night Media)

Paper: Designer Paper (Fancy Pants), Naturals Ivory, Old Olive
Ink: Close to Cocoa
Accessories: 1/2", 3/4", 1", 1 1/4" & 1 3/8" Circle Punches, Brads (Dollarama), Glue Dots

4.25 x 5.5 card

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Andrea,

Alayna and I were just looking at some of your cards. She said her favourite one was the black (brown?) and pink one with the circles and the heart.

I know you like comments so I thought this was a good time to send one. :)

Valerie and Alayna
