Chilly Day: Punches: Elaine King

Good morning everyone! 

I hope today is a little warmer than when this photo was taken! Brrr! 



Anyway, today I am bringing you a layout created using some of my punches. It was nice to dig them out again..It is something I often overlook..how about you? 

To start with I chose this collection of Simple Stories, Winter Wonderland. Sticking with the UK Scrap Addicts January theme of No Cardstock.. (I know, I know, its the Feb prompt I'm supposed to be promoting..lol) I started with a piece of the wood grain paper to use as my background. I bought this collection a while back now from Pretty My Page..the shop run by UK Scrap Addicts very own creative team member Lisa-Jane. Se still has a little left in stock..and they are reduced..woohoo! She is moving over to concentrate on her fantastic cut files now so there are bargains to be had!

Anyway..back to the layout.. I then took some long pieces of patterned paper and punched along the edge of the longest piece. I then layered them along the left hand side adding a piece at right angles along the bottom and adding some punched tags tucked under he top at the far left. 


Next I mounted the photo and used foam tape to lift it off the page for added dimension. 

Once this was placed I punched little bunting flags and added it to some bakers twine along the bottom. 
I then punched several snowflakes and scattered them around the edges of the photo and added several stickers from the collection too. 



Quite a simple layout but I managed to use four different punches..shown here. 


Why not have a go yourself and let me know you've got on? 

Have fun
