Geek Lab || Going “Old School”



Good morning, everyone!!  Kat here today to share with you another layout using our fabulous Tapestry kit!

For most “Geek Lab” posts, we focus on tips for using some fun new tool or technology….but for this post, I want to encourage you to go “old school”.  🙂  I have been scrapping for about 6 years now and a few years ago, punches were all the rage.  This punch in particular:

For those of you who have been scrapping a few years, do you remember this punch?  Everyone had it, so of course, I had to have it.  And it’s been collecting dust for quite a while now.  So, I decided to break it out and use it on a layout:


I created three rows of butterflies and then layered my photos on top of them.  It’s such a simple and easy technique, but I think it adds a bit of interest to an already super-simple page.


I hope I’ve encouraged you to break out some of those old punches.  I had fun digging through my punch stash trying to decide which one to use for this layout, so I think I’ll be using some of my other ones pretty soon!

Thanks for stopping in!
