Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge 9-16-11: Punches

Welcome to my entry for the Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge 9-16-11: Punches

As you may have noticed, I am very partial to creating layouts, and I am partial to my youngest son as my focus. So, I was thrilled when I got to create layouts using punches, because I had just begun to sort and crop all of the photos from our first trip to Tweetsie Railroad. And.....I recently purchased a Martha Stewart Border punch in choo choo train for a steal at a big box chain craft store! SO.....all this to say I was excited to get started on these layouts!

The photo above shows a secrtion of the choo choo border punch in a teal cardstock, inked with Distressing ink, and adhered to a black backgroud.
On the top layout, I cut a 12 in. strip of teal paper, and punched continuously, end to end. I left the remaining section of cardstock that resulted from the punched strip. I then applied this as a bottom border for my layout.
This project was created using the Sarsparilla Paper Pack , and coordinating Stickease stickers from Close To My Heart, our sponsor!
The layout below also incorporated the same punch, but I chose to punch the entire width of the top of my 12 x 12 in. cardstock base, and create only a decorative top edge, rather than a border strip or a decorative edge on all 4 sides of my background cardstock!

I hope you'll try out some of those punches you have already, or branch out and purchase a new one you have been wanting to try, but haven't! We love to see your creations ar Frosted Designs!
