Scrapping with Coldplay

Hi everyone, Gabriela here today with a page I loved doing. I went to see Coldplay in Chicago last month and I knew I wanted to scrap the concert and use some bold colors. I started by making a mini pocket album.  I cut my paper at 12" x 6" and scored at 1.5" across and 3" vertically.

These panels will be taped together.
Then I added a background and my letters.
I chose a picture from when the band was performing "Yellow" and adhered the mini pocket album to the page.  Inside that I placed the ticket stubs and a journaling card.

This concert was absolutely amazing and to be honest, I will probably scrap it again :), happy crafting.

Alphabet Punch Board Review

Hi everyone, here today with a review on the We R Memory Keepers Alphabet Punch Board. I saw that this was out, but I hadn't seen it in stores yet, so I ordered from HSN (they have a really great price right now) and then filmed a video of how it works.  I am a big fan of We R Memory Keepers products, I have a Fuse, the 1-2-3 Punch Board, the Flower Punch Board and I used Pinwheels in my wedding! This one is the first one I bought without watching a demo first, so my reaction and use is "fresh". I have to say I really like it, it's perfect for banners or wall decor and figuring it out only takes s few minutes, watch the video below for the full review and see the punch board in action.



Like I said in the video, the only thing I would like to see added is the ability to have smaller letters, maybe half size. Other than that I was extremely pleased with the cut quality and the speed.  You can complete a banner in a few minutes and precutting the paper to 3" x 5" rectangles will help speed things up too! If you're only doing a few letters or numbers, you can use the board to cut your paper down to size.  I hope this video was helpful, happy crafting.
