Welcome to the 2nd installment of Products You Love Every Which Way!

This lesson is all about...


I think that most of us have accumulated quite a large number of punches. Some dating back to the days of when we first started scrapbooking. My goal is to give you a few ideas for your punches, old ones and new ones. Tiny ones, and big ones. Punches are a bit pricey sometimes, but they can be used over and over. (Even after almost 10 years, as you can see on my first layout.) I had more ideas than I could fit into the class, so you'll see a couple additional ideas posted in the Gallery throughout the month.

Dust off those punches and let's get started!

You can see the Class & download a PDF here.

As always we'll have a challenge associated with the class. Here's the info:

This month your challenge is to create a layout/card/project on which you've used PUNCHES. Try to use them in a way you never have before!

To participate in the Challenge:

-Create a project on which you've used PUNCHES.

-Project can Digital, Traditional or a Hybrid.

-Submit your layout by uploading to the gallery by March 9, 2011 11:59 CST. Don't forget to click the box next to this class (Products You Love Every Which Way: February 2011) on Step 4 of uploading.

I will pick a winner randomly from all the submissions to win a Gift Certificate to Two Peas and post the winner on the Education Board on March 10th. For every submission to this class you will earn a badge!

Please let me know what you think! I can't wait to share this adventure through our stashes with you!

A special thank you to the guest designers this month!

Thanks a lot for this great class! I'll definitely try the reverse pop dotting!

I used my four leaved clover punch to create green confetti for my new years party this year (I used different left over sheets of scraps or sheep thin paper in all shades of green and it made great decoration on the table) - additionally the 'left over' pieces of punched out scraps actually served as a great inspiration for New Years Cards (like this one: New Years Card

Super cute layouts!
I don't have any tiny punches, gave them to my son's preschool ages ago, but I do have a small collection going of border punches, which I need to use more of. So that's what i used, as well as a scallop punch that I used for a border too. crafty mess
Thanks for these classes!
