One last Christmas card…..

Just kidding!  I finally got a chance to step into the stamp room, and here's what I came out with.

I know what you're thinking.  "Is that scallop photo corners punch in the new catalog?"  Well, guess what?  It's not a new punch, just a new way of using two current punches.  This is compliments of Jan Tinklenberg.  She has a great tutorial on her blog with pictures and everything, so check it out!  She is so amazing.  In a nutshell, you punch a scallop square out of Designer Series Paper (card stock is too thick), then, using a temporary adhesive, stick it to some copy paper, line the edge up with the edges of the photo corners punch, and voila'!  I had one regular photo corner and one scalloped after I did this.  I was going to layer them, but I love the Raspberry Tart paper and didn't want to cover it up.  So I taped the smaller photo corner to copy paper, and punched with the scallop square. 

Edit — I wasn't as happy with this as I wanted to be, so I played around with it a little.  Check the post on 12/29 to see what I did!

Hope your holiday was a happy one!  We had a wonderful visit with almost all our family.  My Jonathan left Christmas morning to spend the weekend with Ali and her family, but we had a very nice Christmas Eve and morning with him and Wesley.  And Jon had a terrific time at the beach.  Unfortunately, Ali got a pet rodent while she was gone, so now Jon wants one.  Ick.  I may have to exert my maternal privileges and nix this one.  As long as I never hear, see, smell, touch, or in any other way sense its presence, I might be able to live with it.  I just keep having visions of Ben.  Or Mrs. Frisby.  I may have to call NIMH before it's over.
