What's New Wednesday - See new ideas from the Occasions and Sale-a-Bration Catalogs - www.SimplySimpleStamping.comHappy Wednesday!  I hope you’re having a good week so far!  I had such a great week!  I had a wonderful visit with my friend Brenda. I had to put her on an airplane last night and I was not happy about that but as they say, all good things must come to an end.  

Lucky for us the Occasions Catalog isn’t ending anytime soon!  I still have SO many stamps and accessories to share with you in What’s New Wednesday!

Yesterday I shared a 2-Minute Tuesday Tip video on how to create a bow with the Bow Builder punch.  It was pretty simple, right?  Well, today I went into my stamp studio to play around with it some more to see what other things could be created with it.  

Check these babies out!  Wahoo!

This simple bow was created by punching out (4) punches.  I used a 1″ circle underneath to help build it.  Super simple!

How about a flower instead of a bow?  Yep, the Bow Builder can make that too!  Punch (7) and lay them next to each other.  Tip:  You can do it with (6) punches too.

Is this fabulous or what?  (8) punches and I just started to build.  I brought the middle layer out a little more, the whale tails come out a smidge more.  A silver ½” glimmer center finished this bow off nicely.

What to do with the (4) extra whale tails?  Create a flat bow!  This is perfect for a card that needs to be mailed!

Jazz up a paper clip for work or as a bookmark!

I wish I had more time today to create ‘actual’ projects with each one but I have a lot of catching up to do.  You know how it is when you’ve had company for a week.  Laundry is piled up, sheets to be changed, mail to be sorted, and I don’t even want to talk about the emails that are stacking up.  It was SO worth it though!  We had such a great time!!!

I hope that today’s pics inspire you!  What will YOU create with the Bow Builder???  Don’t have this punch yet?  Be sure to add it to your next order.  You won’t be disappointed!


Happy Hump Day my sweet stampin’
