Round Tab Punch

I am so glad school holidays are over!!!!! I think my eldest is happy too - he couldn't wait to get back to school and tell his friends about his holidays. His highlight this holidays was going to Toowoomba. It is nice when they can be easily amused.

I have been experimenting with my punches lately and decided to play around with the Round Tab Punch. I used it to make the large circle on the front of the card and I also used the scallop punch, 1 1/4" and 3/4" circle punches. To achieve the large circle with the Round Tab punch just punch the card and then turn the card 90 degrees and line up the edges and punch again and voila you have a large circle.

If you have any questions please contact me.

Scratch 'n' Sniff Card

I started experimenting with scented emboss powder a while ago but wasn't happy with the results as it turned out all bumpy and I thought something was wrong with it but have since discovered that that is the way it is supposed to be because of the jelly crystals.

So I came up with this card using the new In Colours - Purely Pomegranate and Blue Bayou for both card and ink. The stamp set used is Simply Said.

The jelly crystals are strawberry and it is important to use diet jelly crystals as they contain no sugar. I used 50% clear emboss powder and 50% diet crystals. I just love the scent it has.
