Simple Punched Pages

Brown is one of those soft warm colors that make the warm winter season seem so much more cozier. I love this textured paper with just the tracing of a flowered branch across it.

When I first started putting together this cover with paper I couldn't decide if I wanted to keep it simple or give it a little punch.

Of course, I was in my local craft shop and I came across this edge puncher and knew I had to have it. I used a EK Success border punch (affiliate link) on all the pages of this guest book album.

Here's a close up of the page edges below.

I got so excited by this punch that I didn't think to add any scrapbook photo pages inside the guest book album. I guess it could also be used as a journal, too.
The pages are simple, yet I think the punched border gives it a simplistic elegance of all it's own.

I slipped it into a brown felt sleeve with a piece of ribbon to hold down the flap closure.

What do you think, to punch or not to punch pages?
