Kim has used the Stars and Stripes punch in two ways on these two layouts. The Stars and Stripes punch is a versatile punch as you can choose whether to punch just the border and stars, or to also incorporate the stripes. One the first layout she has punched a border using both the stars and the stripes and then she has layered a red paper behind the stars to make them stand out.
For the second layout, she has used the stars punched from creating the first layout to create a spray of stars diagonally across the layout.
As an aside, this punch co-ordinates perfectly with the Say Cheese range from Simply Stories!
