Hi, everyone! I'm here with a fun little challenge called Roll with the Punches. Do you have a stash of punches that you never use? How about straws? Maybe you have some mad quilling skills that haven't been put to use recently? This is the challenge where all those ideas and more can really shine!
I have a ton of punches, and I always forget to use them, so I was happy to put a couple of them to use. I have this fun picture of a friend and her daughter at the movie theater, and I remembered I had this popcorn bag in my stash because, well, I'm a packrat--you just never know when you might need something for a layout! I had the idea of filling it with a bunch of punched stars in place of popcorn, but then I thought of having the popcorn stars bursting out of the bag. I found some old ticket embellishments in my stash and added those coming out of the bag too. That fun little speech bubble was cut out of this Doodlebug I Heart Travel paper.
I used the "Life in Pictures" free cut file--the film strip seemed a perfect thing for a movie layout. The "Today" background paper is from Pretty Little Studio's Document Life collection, as is the star paper. The fun stickers I used are from Echo Park's Teen Spirit Boy collection.
How awesome are those Curious Thickers from Shimelle's Field Trip collection? The pack has red and blue alphas! Those pennants were cut out of this Echo Park Teen Spirit paper.
So dust off some of your punches and come play with us! Share your creation in our Facebook group for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store! Please use my code Debbi (no e on the end), and you'll get 20% off of your entire purchase!
I can't wait to see how YOU roll with the punches!
