I've created these two layouts so far, inspired by her fab workshop, you can see them in the gallery here and here.
Do you have tools that are collecting dust or do you put them to good use?

I used my circle dies, it's a classic gg move but it's good to be reminded
Is this an instrument of torture or communication?

Embossing folders are such a great way to add texture particularly to card fronts or to die cut embellis - I really must use them more often

Great job on these layouts, it looks like you may be working on a wedding album. I hope you post more pictures of the rest of it.
Thanks, and yes, these are the first two pages of a wedding album I'm doing for a girlfriend. I'll be posting my progress on my blog, but I also try to get them into the gallery here!

Just last night I pulled out my circle punch for the first time in forever. I also need to use all those embossing plates I thought I couldn't live without.

These are great layouts! I frequently use punches, but I tend to forget to use my dies and Big Shot.
