My layout is called "Hectic Mornings. I also have bits about being thankful on my layout. It's a bit of a contradiction, I know, but in my journaling, which is hidden behind my blank tag, I talk about how our days, especially our morning are very hectic, chaotic, loud - full of hustle and bustle. But when we finally get into the car and off to school, especially on October mornings, I'm reminded how thankful I am for those beautifully hectic mornings. The leaves are gorgeous, my kids are happy, and even though life is constantly on the move and hectic, I am so thankful for what my life has brought me.
It's finally closing in on the end of the week and today in the US, it's Veteran's Day. For those serving currently, in the past, or with a spouse serving, "Thank You".
Today and tomorrow, at SRM Stickers we are all thanking and showcasing Marvy Uchida for their generous contributions to our design team with their newest products. Today it's all about their *NEW* Clever Lever Craft Punch. It's such a fun new product! If you want to easily and quickly make PERFECTLY aligned border punches every time, this is the scrappy product for you!
I created a layout using rows of all three of the borders that I generously received from Marvy. I wanted a lot of texture and to create a bit of a gradation with my layers of borders. My unexpected bonus - the punches were large enough in scale that I used some of the negative space punches on my layout as well sprinkling them here and there and ultimately creating less waste - I love that! I also wove a bit of twine through one of the punches to add a bit more dimension and texture.
Once my layout was where I wanted it, I added a couple touches with my SRM Stickers, this time with just one sheet.
So that about wraps it up for me today. Thanks so much for stopping by today! Don't forget about my g.i.v.e.a.w.a.y here and make sure you stop back by tomorrow when I will have another fun Marvy and SRM Stickers project to share with you. Until then, have a wonderful Thursday! :)
