New toys

For my birthday, my kids bought me a 2" scalloped circle punch. I thought that I'd be able to use it with my Creative Memories circle cutters. But, the CM cutters cut a 1.5" circle and a 2" circle, not a 1.75" circle. So I ordered a 1.75" circle punch from Stampin' Up! and Anne dropped it off for me on Friday.

So, I've been playing with my new punches. :)

I made this card for Patter's scripture challenge.

And this layout, using Liz's sketch #23:

(I cut a piece of the MM pp out from behind the scalloped cardstock to make the card.)

And then I lifted myself and made this layout, using the new SU! pp that Anne also dropped off for me. ;)

I saw this quote in the Sept/Oct 2008 issue of Simple Scrapbooks and knew it would be great on a page for my boys. (Again, using the new SU! pp.)

Such a great feeling to get a bunch of layouts done. And so fun to have some new tools to play with as well.

Thanks for looking!

So, so cute! Love all your creations! I made all my baby thank-you cards with my scallop punch and a circle punch too! I've been using that scallop punch SO much lately!
Did you see the new SU scallop border punch?! That is next on my wish list - it is AWESOME!
