Okay take it easy on me, I don't pull out the paper crafting stuff much! Anyway, they are just some simple cards using some of my favorite papers and a circle punch! I tried to make every card different which was fun, coming up with different layerings and placements Smiley

Do you like them? I am open to comments and criticism! Smiley

Oh how neat. what kind of paper is the main paper? is it all scrapbook paper? I might have to make some of this for my sister for christmas. Lol. Any tips for a beginner? Oh and where did you get the hole punchy things. lol. I dont know how to say that. The thing that punches out perfect circles in different sizes. lol

The actual "card" part is just regular old heavy weight paper I got at an office supply store, the blue and tan papers are from Creative Memories... the brown/orange combo is a double sided paper from SEI as is the white polka dot/green combo. I used a regular hole punch for the tiny dots and the big ones were made using a Creative Memories punch (if have to buy through a consultant) but you can buy other brands at any craft store. I just like the CM one because there are two diif, sizes of circles on one punch...

I am a beginner so I don't think I can help you much... just start cutting and placing things on paper and when you like how something looks, break out the glue.
