Hi there SCT fans! It’s Nicole here today with another “Designed With” video in our series! I love breaking out my trusty tools and putting them to good use. I love using my circle punches as a way to incorporate lots of color and pattern and today, we are going to do just that!


Supplies | Patterned paper: Bella Blvd; Cardstock: American Crafts; Stamps and ink: Close to My Heart

A simple circle punch can be used in so many fun ways. For this project, I used a 2″ circle punch and trimmed down the circles into half circles and pie shapes, using the shapes to build the base for my project.


This is a great way to mix busy patterns and create your own unique background. Change up the size of your punch to get a totally different result!


Sit back and watch how easy it is to create your own project like this one using some of your trusty tools!

I hope you will give this technique a try and share it with us! Please tag me @nicolenowosad and @sctmagazine on social media, and use the hashtag #createwithsct if you have given this a try so that we can see how it turned out!
