Tuesday Inspiration - Lucky 8 Punches

Today i am so excited to share with you this new tool that i have been crossing my fingers that it would be bought to Papermarket the minute my eyes set sight on it. Seen and heard so much about it and i think it is simply the most awesome tool to have. Lol i have not mention what is it yet ok its the Lucky 8 punches from WRMK.

Not only does it comes in the above designed it comes in 5 MORE different design, can you imagin every puncher gives 3 different punch image so that would be like 18 different punch design, how i wish i own all 6 of them.

Look at all the pretty designs! So how does it works many of you would ask.

First of all aline and punch all 4 sides of the paper with the punches, then turn the paper around and do the same on all 4 sides. Look how detailed and pretty it is!

and the final product is

The best thing is that not only the final product is pretty, the left overs can also be useful as well.

Recently Papercrafts Magazine has this great book on Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters and Moxie Fab have been showing a few great ideas on how to DIY Embellishments, Paper Scraps and using Snippets from Household items. You can check it out Here.

This week they are having a Practical Solutions for Papercrafters week-long Celebration so here i am reading all the post and thinking about the blogpost and so i thought hey the tiny flowers can be used to make a card, and with the recent trend of Confettis this would make a great centerpiece.

The next thing that I will show you is a great tip to make the most outta your patten paper, see my layout that i've created this week you can actually use the punch out from the corners. Look carefully below the photo. So next time before throwing away the left overs think about how to reuse them ;)

The picture above is my niece after eating an egg tart and i love the expression she has on her face. All smiley and happy after a satisfying dessert.

Fussy cut and layered the flowers from the K and Company Watercolor Bouquet collection. Can you spot the Melissa Frances embellishment? Cant wait for her to arrive in April to meet her!

So hurry down to Papermarket to grab those Lucky 8 punches before they are sold out!

This layout is submitted for Dont Throw it Away Challenge in the Moxie Fab World ;) so play along.

Have a Creative week ahead!
