Today is the Boston Marathon. It is nasty out! Rainy, windy, and cold. I have never run a marathon (true story) and I know that “watching weather” and “running weather” are not often the same thing. However, I can’t imagine this weather today is ideal for anyone!
That said, “nasty weather” is sort of ideal for crafters! For some reason, I am most happy crafting on lousy days. So if you are like minded, here is some inspiration for you:
I know you know that that the Retiring List of items from the Occasions and Annual Catalog came out last week. If you don’t know, now you know (click here). On this list is this fantastic little bundle.
My clubs this month will be using this set so I have had the chance to lots of creating using this bundle. I LOVE this bundle. First of all, it comes with PUNCHES—-“LAAAAAAAAAA” (the sound of craft angels singing!). LOVE punches–easy to use and hard to lose! (That should be the tag line for punches!! You are welcome, Tag Line Maker Uppers!) AND–the punches (4 in total) are called Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack–You had me at “Itty Bitty”!! SO cute!!!
Check out this video here:
I chose to punch out the pineapples but could have just stamped them on the cardstock and left them flat. I wanted dimension here though. Check this out:
Look at those adorable pineapples!!! Get this—the new(ish) Mini Dimensionals fit on these pineapples -and strawberries, pears, and citrus slices-PERFECTLY! Well done, Punch Designers!
There will be more posts coming with this little bundle. I don’t want anyone to miss out on getting it so act quickly. The stamp set is available until May 25th but if these cute punches sell out, you are out of luck…..and you DON’T want to fussy cut tiny fruit…..Let’s face it: you don’t want to fussy cut ANYTHING–or is that just me?!
In any case, get yourself over to my website and order this bundle asap.
