"Punch Your Art Out 3" - a book review

Updated on March 2, 2013

The Best Book of Ideas and Inspiration for Using Scrapbooking Punches Creatively: Punch Your Art Out 3 by Memory Makers

With Punch Your Art Out 3, Memory Makers really hit it's stride with this series and brought the "ART" part of the series to it's fullest potential. With dazzling pages and tons of amazing design ideas, the editors have packed hundreds of fantastic, creative uses for scrapbooking paper punches into a slim volume of under 100 pages.

Not only does Punch Your Art Out 3 cover dozens of scrapbooking layouts and ideas, there are loads of other crafting ideas for decorating lampshades, gift bags, Christmas ornaments, - even cupcakes!

This is one craft book I return to again and again; for tips, tricks, or just visual inspiration. The pictures are glorious, especially the header pages to each chapter - all similar to the incredibly detailed cover of the book. My favorite part of the book is that each chapter has a page or spread titled "One Punch" similar to how Somerset Studio magazine's "With One Stamp" feature. A single punch is used to create intricate, diverse patterns and borders through clever techniques including trimming and embellishing.

Punch Your Art Out 3 is the book that opened my eyes to the world of Punch Art, and it started a paper punch addiction that's transform my art - and my crafts.

A visual feast, a quick glance through this book's pages always gets my creativity revved.
