Everyone loves getting happy mail right? ABSOLUTELY!
So when I collected a lovely parcel from Fiskars from my local post shop....imagine the excitment as I opened the bag. The suspense, the adrenaline....ok ok enough....too exciting Evana! But seriously how cool to welcome these little beauties to my scrap room!
What a treat.
As I unwrap each one, I go through the same process, touch, feel, function, adaption, application. Call me 'A Type' or even 'Retentive' but if anything is going to last in this scraproom it has to impress me from the get go. Right off the bat I notice that each punch clips into the base unit so lets make sure it fits well and sits flush = BIG CHECK! Lets test a piece of card...the thick type so I know where the limit is = BIG CHECK! Ok the other thing I see is the little wings that fold out from the base of the punch unit itself. These wings sit nicely into the base and is super secure. Then (and this is one of those "LIGHTBULB" or as Oprah would say "A-HAA" moments.....THE PUNCH UNITS STACK ON TOP OF EACHOTHER! Yes they do! and this feature alone has me impressed. I mean I have a tub (a rather large tub) full of punches of every breed, type and style but this feature means I can stack them nicely to the side for ease of use. Fiskars.....You impress me at every step!
So enough of the product critic....Lets play!
I recently spent a wonderful week with my BFF in Melbourne. These pics were the result of alot of great food, wine and awesome girlie time. I used "Ivy League" punch on either side of my layout and used the "Lacy Doubles" punch for some detail on the right and base of the main photo (as seen in the close up picture).
I am officially in love with these punches. I hope there will be more additions to the range and maybe even the matching corners (throwing it out there) and even a case to carry them to crops( another throw lol). So go find some in your local Scrapbook stores. Order them in, or look out in your local Spotlight store for these little beauties!
Thanks Fiskars. Love your work.
