Scalloped Edges tutorial update...

I have noticed quite a bit of traffic coming in for my little old tutorial on Scalloped Edges.
Here’s an update on how to get it even (more or less) on each side.

Don't forget to leave comments/thoughts! It helps me to know what to work on!!

Here's the link to my original tutorial Scalloped Edges.
* 2/19/08 - How do you do that? A guide to removing the guard off your punches.

What you want to do is figure out where the center of your project is.

Don't forget to take that guard off of your punch! I am using the Stampin' Up! 3/16" Corner Rounder with the guard removed.

Carefully go across one side of your cardstock or paper.
Take care not to punch all the way through the paper or you will create a "notch" in the paper.

When you are done on one side, go across the other way starting again at the center of your project. When you are done, you should be fairly even on each side.

It gets easier with practice. Believe me... I was doing this at 3 in the morning today and after the 10th time, I had it down just right!

Check out the card I made for the SC161 challenge! I posted it next...

A Good Egg

That name for the stamp set cracks me up! lol!

Well I finally did it! I jumped in and did a SCS Sketch Challenge. SC161
Here's what I came up with:


The egg is stamped in Chocolate Chip on Berry Bliss DSP (the one with pink spots on white). I stamped the flowers with the polka dots over the stamped egg and then trimmed it out. On another sheet from Berry Bliss (pink flowers on pink) I stamped the zig zag pattern in Close to Cocoa and trimmed that out and mounted it onto the egg.

Using the Tombo Multi Liquid Glue, I added the micro-beads to the outside edge of the zig zag pattern.

If you look closely, you will see that the pink strip of DSP has been stamped over in Pretty in Pink with the flower and polka dot stamp.

I finished it off with some scalloped edges and ribbon treatment.
