KnockOuts Punch Set, Scented Embossing Powders & Craft Project Inspiration

American Crafts Knock Outs punch set is compact, easy to use and MUCH cheaper than buying six different border punches. We love the carrying case too!

Each punch design comes with a protective clip-on base and two snap-in design chips to help you line up your border.

We used the border punch with our new Glitter Paper Tape (in bright green) to add a pretty trim to this frame. This tape is from American Crafts and comes in 24 (!) colors and 3 widths: 3/8", 5/8" and 7/8". It's not as messy as adding glitter to double-sided tape and this glitter doesn't come off (nice!). Each spool is 3 yards long.

Are you looking to add something extra to your projects? Try Scentz, a scented heat-embossing powder from ColorBox. There are curretly six "flavors" to choose from: Bubblegum, Lemonade, Peppermint, Grape, Snickerdoodle and Rootbeer - Yum!

This indoor "Herb Garden" was created by Bonnie. She used the back-side of a canvas to create a shadowbox. An added bonus to using the canvas this way was the natural shelf she was able to line up the tiny bottles of dried herbs. She used Canvas Corp Herb Garden papers, small terra cotta pots, glass vials, a craft picket-fence (crackle-painted) and some mini floral greenery pieces.

It's a Road Map Photo board! What a fun way to document your summer vacation. We took a US map wall art piece, attached it to paper covered canvas and embellished with travel themed labels.

Tracey made this victorian-inspired pair of silhouette frames using her son and daughter-in-law's wedding photo. Isn't it sweet?

These pretty keepsake boxes started as unfinished paper mache. Simple decoupage, using Mod Podge, ribbon trim and some small decor knobs are all we added.
