So to follow my post from yesterday. As I said before I was at Michaels since they were having a great sale. One of the things I picked up from there was a heart shaped punch made by Recollections. Like the one shown here but in a larger Heart size http://img2.etsystatic.com/000/0/5887157/il_fullxfull.310248666.jpg They were 50% off so I also picked up a star shaped one. I love these punches since they have the nice hinged lever and it doesn’t kill your fingers or hand to punch lots of items out. I also like to flip the punch over so I can see where I am cutting the paper. This punch replaces the one I purchased many years ago from Creative Memories:http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/214WJt1vhZL._SL500_AA300_.jpg Love the shape of the heart but it was truely annoying to use this punch!
Lastly I mentioned wanting to have a binder of some sort that I can stamp my images into for easy flipping through to see what I want to use and get inspired. I ran accross this one I had started as a recipe book (that went nowhere haha). It is a half sized binder so easier to tuck away on my shelf. I will be making new labels for the tabs once I figure out how I want to categorize my CTMH stamp sets.
Stay tuned to see how I use my punched hearts, houses and setting up my binder system.
