For my submission for this week's Less is more challenge, I decided to make a monogram using my 3 size hole punches (from a making memories tool set). I originally saw something similar done on QVC using martha stewart tools, and have been meaning to try it ever since. Mine is a lot more random than the one that I saw, though. If you want to try this, here's how I did it. I drew the shape of my letter onto a post-it note, and positioned this on the front of the card. I started with the largest hole punch and randomly punched holes within the letter. I then used the medium size in some of the gaps and finished by filling up the remaining gaps with the smallest size. really easy! I added a sparkly paper insert to emphasise the punching. I chose the letter A as I have made it for my son Alex's birthday. In other news, today I ran my first ever 10km event, and I did it in 66minutes and 15 seconds (unofficial time- still waiting for the official time) and I'm chuffed to bits, it's about 10 minutes faster than I dreamed I could do it!
I am happily married with two wonderful sons. I work full-time as a radiographer. I like to make stuff. Cardmaking, knitting, crochet. I'll try anything crafty.I also have an unhealthy love of maths: I did a degree for fun.
I post on my blog in the hope that I will inspire others to create. I am more than happy for you to be inspired by anything I post, and make it your own. Likewise, I get inspiration from all sorts of sources including the blogs of other crafters, although I would never knowingly directly copy another's work I visit so many blogs I pick up inspiration all over the place. Please know that if you are in my blog lists then you inspire me.
