Make a statement on your scrapbook page with a large bow embellishment! Use the One Piece Bow Die and the Evolution Advanced to create your bow from your favorite patterned paper. For more photos and details about Kim Jeffress’ beautiful layout, visit the Heidi Swapp blog HERE.

Mini albums are a great way to preserve photos and memories, and we love how designer Renee Zwirek used our Glassine Papers and Frame Punch Board as part of her Cinch book. For full instructions, visit the Pebbles Inc blog HERE.

Our Font Punches are perfect for adding decorative details to letters punched with the Alphabet Punch Board, but they’re also great for adding punched embellishments to your scrapbook pages. We just love how Chantalle McDaniel added some tiny flowers to her page with the Marquee Punch.

Include beautiful hand stitched accents to your scrapbook layout with our Sew Easy Floss. CLICK HERE for more about this gorgeous inspiration piece by user Puddin Head on Scrapbook.com.
