Pals September Hop - Cool Tools!



Welcome to the Pals September Blog Hop! This month we are showcasing projects made with some of our favorite crafting tools! You are right on track if you hopped here from Amy's blog!

Stampin' Up's envelope punch board is my favorite new toy....oh sorry tool :)  The punch board is proving to be much more than an envelope maker. This nifty little file folder card was made using the new punch board and is just the right size to tuck in a couple of lottery tickets for a grown-up Halloween treat! The buttons and twine keep the card closed, ready to be tucked into the envelope. Also love those new framelits that create envelope liners - so easy to make with the Big Shot and the new magnetic platform - more toys!

Tools Used:  Envelope Punch Board, Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, Envelope Liner Framelits, Paper Snips, Craft Scissors

Now hop on over to Stampin' Pretty for a visit with the amazingly talented Mary Fish.  Thanks for stopping by!

Adorable file folder card. I love how you did the closure with the buttons and twine. I also like how you popped up the one pumpkin. I made my first Halloween card with this stamp and I love it! Thanks so much for sharing. Lynn G.

This is one of the cutest Halloween cards I've seen this year. I love what you did with the "folder". The green DSP makes the pumpkin vine really stand out. Love it!

Love the button enclosure for the file folder! My only hang up with the file folder was how to keep it closed- you gave me the answer, my friend! Love this card and what a great idea for a grown up Halloween treat;))

Hi Linda! I went thru the blog hop so quickly on Tuesday and am now savoring the projects! This file folder technique appears to be the hottest new detail and I absolutely love the way you used it! I am looking forward to using that stamp set... it makes me so happy! Great colors, details and clever closure. Another Linda special made with her toys... oops, tools.... :)
