DCC: Simple Little Valentine…

Little B Valentine's Card 1607

I really love this new border punch that I received last month from Little B LLC.

This Little B 100366 Trim Punch, Honeycomb,punches both sides of the paper at one

time leaving you with a great border strip to uses on all sorts of projects.

For my “Simple Little Valentine”, I punched four border strips from white cardstock.

I glued the strips onto another piece of white cardstock, butting up the ends to create

a continuous pattern.  An easy way to create a simple and elegant background.

Another great thing I love about this punch is it’s locking feature.

It has a button on the side of the punch so that you can lock it in the closed position for easy storage.

How great is that?

Cherish Family 1936

I recently ran across this old Family Reunion picture from 1936.

Because there is over 100 relatives in the picture, I wanted to highlight where my Grandparents are.

I used one of the frames from the “Clear Mixers“.

After removing one side of the protective covering, I painted the edges with Antique Linen Distress

Paint.  I glued a small piece of scrapbook paper under the painted side and trimmed it with an exact-o

knife.  I gently sanded the edges with a sanding block and distressed it slightly with Vintage Photo

Distress Ink before removing the second protective coating.

My grandfather is the one with the x and my grandmother is sitting to his left holding my Uncle Bill.

I used the Chamberry Collection from Adorn it and a scalloped circle punch and a old border punch

from Marvy Uchida.
