Chevrons and Simple.. What more can I say

I apologize that I haven't posted in awhile. Life has gotten a little crazy for us lately. Rest assured it is all crazy good! With all the craziness the scrapbooking took a brief hiatus. I am back though and right now I have been loving anything that has a chevron. Not sure why... maybe its the bold colors with the high contrast of usually white in the pattern. I just like the clean look of the design.

I have been looking at my Tonic punches wondering what I can do to  use one of them a little differently. I then found that the Simplicity Border Punch in the Scalloped Diamond pattern resembles a chevron design. I couldn't wait to play and find just the right width of paper strip to use. I found that using a 1.5 in wide paper and however long works the best. So I cut a bunch of strips and began punching away!

This layout is way simpler then I am used to doing, but I love how it turned out. Very crisp and graphic. Plus who doesn't love a picture of a cute kid with his daddy! This was a cute picture of my brother and his little guy. I hope you like what I came up with and I challenge you to use a punch in a different way and see what you can come up with.

Here is my layout:

Don't you just love the chevron look of the punches! I hope you enjoyed and Happy Creating!
