September Sketch Challenge - We Love Summer


Here's the September Sketch from the Let's Get Sketchy blog 
followed by the scrapbook layout it helped to inspire!


On my YouTube Channel, you can see exactly how this page came together in this video.

For the page title, I used the Word Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers. While the sketch called for stars, I decided to use hearts created with nesting heart punches!




Until next time, happy scrap booking and paper crafting!

August Sketch - Let's Get Sketchy Blog


Here's the August Sketch from the Let's Get Sketchy Blog followed by the page it inspired me to create! There is also a process video on my YouTube Channel (Emilee's Paper Caper) here.


The photo on this page was taken in front of the movie theater after we saw the newest Spider-Man movie. Since we saw this movie over the July 4th holiday weekend, I used a background paper with red, white and blue on it. The pattern also makes me think of spider webs. 



Until next time, happy scrap booking and paper crafting!

Word Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

On a recent shopping trip to Tuesday Morning, I found they were selling some of the Word Punch Boards from We R Memory Keepers for only $19.99. As a fan of punches, I couldn't resist bringing this set home with me.

As I learn how to use the Word Punch Board, I've found it helps to punch every other letter and then go back and punch the missing letters. By doing this, the letters are closer together and not so far apart!

Here are some photos of some Happy Birthday cards I made using the Word Punch Board. Instead of rubber stamping the greeting, I used the Word Punch Board to create the words.


Here is a scrapbook page featuring a title created with the Word Punch Board. I decided to punch the title from one of the photos on the layout for something different!



Do you have one of these Word Punch Boards? If so, I'd love to hear how you're using yours!

Until next time, happy scrap booking and paper crafting!!
