ABCreations Loves

The "A.B." in ABCreations stands for Anmarie Bowden, that's me! My favorite ice cream is Mississippi Mud from Baskin Robbins, altho I'm partial to Oreos crumbled on top of Vanilla Bean ice cream too! I was born on Super Bowl Sunday. I have been digiscraping since 2000. I live in beautiful sunny California. I am married to my soul mate and we have two gorgeous children. My favorite saying is, “If you think my hands are full, you should see my heart!”

Tuesday's Tip: Punches



When purchasing punches select those that can be used in multiple ways, such as a heart for flowers, Valentine's, or split it to make a ladybug, leaves, or whatever else you may think of. Many of the punches can be used in this manner. 

See what I mean with the graphic below...

A heart punch can make a heart, but it can also be used to make a flower with leaves and a stem! It can also create a beautiful blossom! Try it as a vine with leaves! What about a broken heart? And look at the darling ladybug!

The same sort of creativity can be used with other punches as well. A star punch can make a star, but what about the using the piece where the star was punched out of? Try cutting around it with decorative edged scissors in a square shape or circle or even star shape! Did you ever think of punching along the edge of the paper to create a custom border? 


Be sure to save any scraps of paper so when a page calls for a bit of color you can use scraps rather than punching a whole new sheet of paper. Slip your scraps into large mailing envelopes and label as solids, prints, or other descriptions. Now you can make photo corners, punch out shapes, and have a variety of colors and patterns to choose from! 

Place photo scraps in another large mailing envelope and label it. For a different approach you can trace lettering on the photo scraps, cut out, and mount them on a scrapbook page for a title with patterned letters.
