Becca Bit: Lining Up All Over the Page Punches

Hi blog friends!!  I had some time this afternoon, so as many of you have asked, I’ve done a video on the basics of lining up the All Over the Page Punches.  I have to admit that I’ve had these punches in my stash since they came out but had not figured out the best way to use them.  After sitting down and making a couple of cards, I’m no longer intimidated and you shouldn’t be either :-)    If you have one of these sitting in the corner, I hope you’ll get it out and give it a try!!

Thanks for stopping by. By the way, today was my 1000th post!!  I hope there are many more to come and I hope I’ll see you tomorrow!!

    Hi! Your cards are so pretty! I loved that little pin-cushion too. I dug around & found stuff to make a couple. I hope they’re as nice as yours. The C.A. trial is on at our house also. Very sad!

    Thank you for the gorgeous cards & a happy 4th to you & yours,

    Hi Becca,
    Thanks so much for the “Becca Bit” (such a cute phrase!) ~
    I saw these punches in Michael’s yesterday, and wasn’t sure about them, but now I see how easy they are to work with. By the way, I also appreciate the idea of the low tac masking tape…thanks!

    CONRATS to you on your 1000th post! This is a tribute to how many of us appreciate you and LOVE your beautiful projects!

    Thanks again, Becca ~ Have a wonderful evening!

    Becca, Thank you so very much for this Becca Bit on lining up punch all over the page punches! I am so glad you did this. I have a punch just like yours and could not figure out how to use it for more than one punch per piece of paper! This will be a great help to me and I will pass it along to others. I appreciate your efforts and admire them greatly. You craft in my style. Thanks for sharing. God Bless.ReplyCancel

  • Jo AnneJuly 3, 2011 - 6:17 pm

    Hi Becca,

    just wanted you to know how much i appreciate your gorgeous art work!! i just finished going thru almost every card (300+) you have posted and loved it. it’s so interesting to see how your style has evolved. it has inspired me to take a new direction in my stamping entirely.

    did you at one time describe how to use the spellbinders dies and have less space between each die?? hope i am stating this correctly.

    again, thanks so much for sharing your gifts,

  • Pam BlairJuly 3, 2011 - 7:34 pm

    Becca, after seeing your amazing creativity and exquisite creations I can truly understand why you have reached your 1000th posts. You definitely have a God given talent for creating breathtakingly, beautiful card design masterpieces.

    Thank you for the tutorial on the punches. I have purchased a few like the ones you own, and could never figure out how to align them up correctly.
    I’m so grateful you took the time to teach us. I have learned so much from you, and greatly appreciate your videos. I hope everyone on your blog has a safe and wonderful 4th of July.ReplyCancel

  • Karen HetheringtonJuly 3, 2011 - 7:39 pm

    Hi Becca,
    Thanks for the video. It gave me a good idea of how to use those punches. I will have to buy some. I love the card with the hearts.

  • JanineJuly 3, 2011 - 7:51 pm

    Well I’m sitting here feeling pretty dumb…lol I bought a couple of these punches a few months ago and ended up returning them. I just could not figure it out and every time I punched, the paper moved. I played around with these punches for a few days and gave up. After seeing your video, I’m going to try my luck again. I never thought to use the painter’s tape and I even have some of that sitting around somewhere in this house!! Congrats on your 1000th post. So many great things I have seen and learned from you on your blog—I should start from the beginning and read ALL of your posts!! Thanks a million for sharing all that you do—your generosity is such a great inspiration and truly appreciated. xoxoReplyCancel

  • PatMJuly 3, 2011 - 8:07 pm

    Becca…THANK YOU for sharing this video on how to use these All Over The Page Punches! I got a few of these and did just OK with one punch, but not well at all with making borders, etc. You did a great job explaining how to line them up and keep the paper in one place as you demonstrated. Love the idea of using painter’s tape. NOW I can put these punches to use! CONGRATS ON 1000!!! YOU’RE THE BEST!ReplyCancel

  • NanLJuly 3, 2011 - 8:22 pm

    You are always full of surprises Becca. That is what I love about your blog. One of my twin granddaughters has been under the weather and I have been so busy with them that I have had little time to spend on the computer, but I had a little free time today so I am trying to catch up. Thanks so much for your tutorial on lining up the anywhere punches. Looks easy enough so I might have to invest in a few and give them a try. Sure loved your cards using them. I would also like to thank you for the how to on the pin cushion. Thought they were just adorable. Have to check out our Michaels to see if I can find some of those frames. Hope you are having a great 4th of July. We normally have quite a show right from our balcanies. We live high on a hill with a fabulous view and normally have 4 or 5 firework displays that we can enjoy. But with all the restrictions this year, not sure if we will be seeing them. So we decided to go out on my daughter and son-in-laws boat and cruise the bay for a fireworks display on the water this year. I am looking forward to it. Catch you tomorrow. Hugs,

    Thank you for this fabulous tutorial. I’ve been a little shy about purchasing these punches, but now that you’ve shown how to use it, I think I have to have that heart one at least. Congrats on your 1000th post!ReplyCancel

    As usual I’m inspired with your beautiful work. I went to Michael’s & bought one of the punch around the page (motif one) I then replayed your video several times until I got the hang of the punch. I love it. Now I have to buy the heart one & the starry sky one.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca! Couldn’t get on computer last night as we were without lights from end of Yankee/Mets game until approximately 2:30 a.m.! Praise God everything still works in the electric line in our home! This Becca Bit is very helpful! Thanks for posting it and congratulations of the 1000 post! Keep them coming! Blessings to you!ReplyCancel

    Thank you for showing how to use the all over punch. I have been wanting to buy one but wanted to see how they work first. Your tutorial was very clear. Thanks for sharing.ReplyCancel

    Great tutorial… and tku for taking time out to show us. I really hadn’t even thought of using them because I had purchased a Fiskars border that had a magnetic base, but it was so cumbersome to use and I couldn’t get it lined up that I gave up. Now with your tutorial I will have to give these a try again! I was wondering though is it a Martha Stewart punch because those are the only ones I’ve seen around. Tks again…ReplyCancel

    Thanks Becca for the Becca bit. I love these how to videos.
    I had some of these punches in my hands and put them back for fear of them being to hard to punch. But they didn’t look that hard. Now I need to make a trip to Michaels.ReplyCancel
