Playing with paper + scissors

I’m a big fan of experimenting and playing with my crafting. It’s how I find new ideas and work out kinks and problems. This page didn’t turn out quite like I imagined (and so it didn’t make class ‘cut’) but that’s ok. I got some ideas and worked out some things with this- and I am happy for this to show off our Christmas card photo this year in my scrapbook.


I’ve been a sew-on-trim freak lately. In addition to my brocade/damask fixation which is still in full swing.


and if you’re wondering why you can’t see the edges of this page… well… I used a punch that’s still (shhh! secret!) under wraps so I can’t show¬† you! But I will soon as it gets peeked.

I know, I’m full of secret projects these days… but much to be shared coming soon!!!

  1. May I can’t imagine any of your LO’s NOT MAKING THE CUT-they are all gorgeous and inspiring! Thanks for sharing and can’t wait to see the punch.

  2. I absolutely adore this LO, and that’s without seeing the edges! I vow to use my sewing machine on my next Lo… it looks way cool!

  3. Great layout! Of course your girls are so adorable how could it not be a great page. I’m anxious to see what the new punch is. Ah, the suspence.

  4. Beautiful! This lo makes the cut in my mind~ so pretty!
    I think it would be fun to see a “Card Photo Shoot” or “Out-Takes” page from this day… I remember you telling E not to show her undies, so she pulled her foot up~teehee~ that’s the silly kind of thing I like to remember about my kids… how funny and cute they are…. besides the picture perfect~all clean~nice clothes~looking~at~the~camera photos that I like to send out at the Holidays!
    When do we get to see the sneak peek of the Fiskars Punch?

  5. Sneaky girl May – I see that Fiskars came out with a bunch of new border punches which is not good. I am a BORDER PUNCH ADDICT and use them a LOT on my projects. I have even made some of my friends into punch addicts.

  6. Love the layout! Can’t imagine why it didn’t make the cut. The picture of the girls is just so sweet. Can’t wait to see the new punch. (you know my addiction to punches. lol)

  7. Oh May that layout is beautiful! I can’t imagine anything you do as “not making the cut”!!!!

  8. Lovely! I adore your secrets…so I’m sure I’ll be pleasantly surprised when the punch is peeked!

  9. May, This card is absolutely adorable! Can’t wait to see which punch you used…you know they gave a few sneek peeks over at fiskars in case it’s one of those!
