February DT Tips & Techniques

Well as you all know I am now on TSE DT Team, or the Dream Team as we call it! LOL! I just love these girls! They are the best bunch of girls to work with! Well February is my first month. We have two Teams. Team 1 will privide the layouts this month, while Team 2 will provide some Tips & Techniques on a certain product.

I am on Team 2, so this month I had to work with the McGill Tall Ticket Punch and come up with 6 different way to use this punch as well as an OTP creation! I had so much fun trying to think outside the square!

You can purchase the Tall Ticket Punch at The Scrapbook Establishment for only $20 at the moment. Thats a saving of 43% Massive Bargain! Just click here!

So here are my examples!

1) Punch out a ticket, and use it for journalling. Used an Autumn Leaves journalling spot and stamped the lines onto the ticket, inked the edges in black, smudged the ticket with pale blue ink, and completed journalling.

2) Punch out a ticket, add a favourite phrase or quote, and create a Quote Tag. I then inked the edges in pale pink ink and stamped Autumn Leaves Flourishes in pink over the top!

3) Punch out the ticket, adhere another ticket to create a Ticket Tag! I also binded the tag to the card with embroidery thread. The heart is made from a transparency, then painted the edges in pink.

4) Create the background out of the Ticket Punch, then add a letter to each tag to create a word or a title for a card or layout!

5) Punch out a ticket tag, and hide it inside a pouch or envelope! Use the tag to create a love letter, or some heart felt words!

6) Use the blank from the Ticket punch to frame a section of a photo!

For my off the page creation, I went with Technique number 5 and created a mini album 10 Reasons to be a girl!
