Welcome to the Third Annual Fiskateers ORANGE Blog Hop! If you're hopping along, you should have come from Kelly's blog. (If you are joining us in the middle, go to www.fiskateers.com to start from the beginning.) Today we are celebrating Fiskars' signature color, ORANGE. Almost everyone is familiar with Fiskars' famous orange-handled scissors, but Fiskars makes so many other wonderful products for crafting, sewing, gardening, and more. Each stop along our Hop will feature different Fiskars' products with a big helping of ORANGE!
My layout today is about my new phone. I am not one of those people who talk to their cars and have names for their possessions, believe me I am not. But my new smart phone (I have Google Nexus) improved my life in so many ways that I never expected, so I decided it deserves a layout. Besides, my phone rocks it's the orange case, so it is only appropriate that it will join us today.
Supplies: patterned paper (Echo Park, American Crafts), thickers (American Crafts), letter stickers (Bella Blvd), corner punch (Fiskars), border punch and tab punch (Fiskars), stickers (American Crafts), twine (unknown)
I used Fiskars Corner squeeze punch to round the corners of my background paper and the orange grid paper. I wanted to echo the rounded corners of my phone.
After that I grabbed Fiskars Notebook border punch and punched the layers under the photo to make a nice distressed stack mat for my photo. Jenni Bowlin Tab Squeeze punch came in handy for the date label. The orange droid is from the case package. Isn't he cute?
I want to show you how I made the distessed notebook border
1. Tear one edge of the paper.
2. Start punching without pushing the paper all the way into the punch. Continue punching using the image on the punch for the alignment and keeping the paper straight
That's it, folks! I am glad you stopped by!
