Paper-piecing Fun!

 Happy December (yay, I am a December baby)!
It's that wonderful time of the year.... Paper-piecing!
When it comes to coloring the stamped image, I admit, sometimes I simply do not have the urge. Instead, I reach for the 6x6paper pad. The one I used was from last year's Basic Grey's collection ( Aspen)
sweet holiday wishes 
 I found these links about paper-piecing and perhaps you would like to check them out, too.
Betsy Veldman's card, Stamp TV video, and Lawn Fawn Video

I just got the We R Memory Keepers Envelop Punch Board (thanks to a 50% off coupon at Michael's). I have been making lots envelopes while I watch TV.
Some people call that multitasking....I think so, too!
Happy Sunday :)

So glad you picked up the envelope punch board - isn't it fun? I've been using up old 12x12 paper for the envelopes - love to finally have a use for it all! :)
