I'm 'punch happy'.. love punches. Also like to mat photos a lot, and keep my layouts simple.

Layering mats and pop dots. Always add a gem flat back pearl, or a dot of Viva pearl Pen.

Other than finish a project... I love to find papers that compliment each other.

Matting and layering and I love to journal on my pages. Just love that part of it and the research that often goes with it. Researching the history of Mt. Rushmore today to put on a layout.

I love to distress but I am very minimal with it.

Since our first granddaughter was born about 15 months ago I've been doing a lot of things I never thought I would do like clustering flowers and using buttons.

My number one "technique" is probably heat embossing....I use it A LOT!
I also use inking and sewing a lot on my layouts. I'd like to get in the habit of embossing my papers more.....I bought a bunch of embossing folders and have used them a bit but I keep forgetting about them!
I use Mod Podge sometimes and Gesso sometimes too....

- collage & layering

- pop-dots & bling

- embossing, stamping, sewing (3 techniques which I probably use the least, but usually love the end results when I actually use all of them individually!)

Wow, there are so many techniques! When I started scrapping about 10 years ago I didn't have a clue that there was such a world of techniques out there.

My boyfriend gave me a BigShot machine for Christmas. But we didn't know that it came with not dies or embossing folders. I just ordered some today so I'll be waiting on pins and needles. I especially want to try dry embossing.

I'd say layering and sewing. I stitch on almost all of my cards and layouts.
