Scrapbook Steals Guest Design Spot

I was so thrilled to be asked to be a guest designer for the
my favourite store for all of my scrapbooking supplies!
I got to create with these 2 fabulous Martha Stewart Punch all over the Page punches.I do already own a Martha Stewart all over the page punch so I was already a huge fan, I love how you can punch right in the middle of a sheet of paper instead of having to go around the edge or cut into the paper first.  I just wish I had more time to play so that I could create apertures in my layouts, that will be my next project for sure!
These punches are so versatile and so easy to use.
You can see my guest spot over at the Scrapbook Steals Blog and be sure to check back regularly as they have regular challenges, giveaways, tips and tutorials every day!

These punches are just perfect for me as I love to make my own flower embellishments, especially with the same
coordinating patterned papers! 
first up I made this......
 The letters were cut on my Cricut with the Storybook cartridge and using a 6x6 pad of Authentique Uncommon, (a former steal from Scrapbook Steals!)
 I then punched out multiple flowers and fronds using the Martha Stewart punches, inked the edges and then dry embossed them for more definition.  
 Then the fun begins....layering all the flowers up!
 Here is how it looks on my craft room wall!
 Although the possibilities are endless with these punches I couldn't help myself but make more decorations....for a gift bag and notebook gift set.
 I used the same papers as before this time using some of the backing card for some of the leaves.

Thank you so much for your visit today xxx
