A designer that is always a favourite around SCT and here with us this week is Lisa Dickinson. With a great eye for design, a witty sense of humour (a great blog to start the day with!) and a girl who works kraft paper like no one's business, we are thrilled to have her!
"One of my favorite tools in my scrapbook arsenal is the paper punch. They are quick and easy to use and offer endless options for scrapbook pages. And with all the newest releases of this versatile tool, I find my collection is ever-expanding! So recently, I challenged myself to use as many different punches as I could on a single page.
The result was this layout, which features a grid design that creates small "galleries" for all my punched artwork. I love that the layers of punched shapes add dimension without being too bulky. And they are easy to layer with other embellishments like flowers, stickers, and buttons. I ended up using seven different punches to create an assortment of paper embellishments that help reflect the theme of my page.
So today I'm challenging you to pull out your punches and see how many you can incorporate on a page. Shapes, borders, letters, words, tags....all your punches are fair game! Can you use more than seven?! I think you'll be surprised how easy it is to work punches into your design. Can't wait to see what you create!

We'll have a great recap of Crop & Create Moncton later this week but in a word it was extraordinary!
