Scallop Punch Tutorial - Close To My Heart

Here is ANOTHER great, and short tutorial ("Simply Scallops") from Close To My Heart. I love this new 2" scallop punch and all of the fun things you can do with it. This video is only about 4 minutes long and gives several ideas, including GORGEOUS example projects (banner, layout). It's SO worth your watch! Those great hands and that infectious voice belong to my friend, Kristine W. She and I are exactly the same age and I have already emailed her to let her know that her hands have weathered the years MUCH better than mine. Life is just not fair.



Here is a list of the products featured on this video and links to each specific product on my website:
This layout has some 2" scallop circles on it. Can you find them? Yep, you're right. I created the illusion of a scalloped border on the bottom of the photo line on the right hand page by punching circles and adhering them UNDER the photos so that only half of each scalloped circle shows. Have you ever thought of using your round or scallop punches this way? If not, there's ANOTHER great 2" scallop punch idea for ya! And, don't you just LOVE this darling Mayberry paper from Close To My Heart? I do!

HI Karen,
Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting. I'm glad you are liking what you see... I wish I had more time to do what you do! I do have some ideas of some hand made things that I want to do for my business. So we'll have to talk and figure something out. Hugs, Wendy
