Image Transfer

I love trying new techniques for my paper crafting projects.  When I saw Linda Barutha blog with this video (Mixed Stitch Video #1) on it I new it was a new technique that I wanted to try.  Love the results I got for this altered canvas bookmark.

September Design Team Sketch Reveal

Today is the Design Team Sketch Reveal at Turtle Soup.

This is the sketch provided by the very talented Bev Code.



 
This is my take on the sketch.


Be sure to check out the forum and see what the other design team members did with the sketch. I’m always amazed by how many different interpretations you can get from one sketch!

Thanks A Bunch

Today I have a Design Team project up on the Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions Blog.

 
 
I created this Thank You card by using the positive and negative pieces from punched border strips. I used the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #918.

Silly Boy

Over the years I have collected a LOT of scrapbooking tools. Some I just thought I had to have … and when I got them found they were an epic fail. Now I do have my favorites and one of those happens to be the Kreaxions Circle Cutter. I LOVE this tool! It’s so easy to use and makes perfect circles wherever you need them.

I created this page using the Kreaxions Circle Cutter, 1 ½ pieces of cardstock and left over paper scraps from another project. Adding a few embellishments, a title and some word stickers finished this simple but cute page.

"Sweet Dreams"

Welcome to Tuesday!  I have the "Tuesday Tools, Tips and Techniques Challenge" at Turtle Soup today.
I came across this site “Get It Scrapped” and loved the idea of arranging elements in a grid. Since I have a LOT of scrap paper to use up this idea was perfect for me.

My challenge to you is to create a layout, card or ATC using a grid.  Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Heartfelt Thanks

I wanted to share a card I made for a Design Team Project for the Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions Punches Blog. I used the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #918 and made border strips. I attached the border strips to my card base and then added a flower and the sentiment to complete the card.

 

I love the detail this punch provides!

Yesterday I posted the Wednesday Crash Your Stash Challenge at Turtle Soup. The challenge was to use wahitape out of your stash … I really mean all that washitape you have been hoarding lol!

Here is another layout I created using up that washitape.

Crash Your Stash Challenge

It’s Wednesday and that means it’s time for a Crash Your Stash Challenge at Turtle Soup. I have a weakness for washitape. The problem is I seem to forget I have it. So my challenge to you is to create a card, ATC or layout using washitape. You have all month to play along. Check out the details in the Turtle Soup Forum.

My Example:

If you don’t have any washitape on hand here are some links that show you how to make your own.

You Make Me Smile

I created this card using up my paper scraps left over from a scrapbooking layout and the Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions Star Stencil.

First I picked my coordinating papers. I then traced the star stencil and cut it out. Next I cut 8 1 ½ inch squares. I layered the squares on top of the star shape overlapping them on top of each other. I added a button and the sentiment to complete the card. Such a simple idea, yet it has a wow factor.





Be sure to check out the Just Imagine Crafts Kreaxions Punches Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team did this week.

It's Friday and that means I have a Design Team project up on the Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions Punches Blog.
Isn’t it amazing how much a punched border strip can add to a layout?!
I used the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #309. By punching both sides of the strip of paper I created an interesting border strip which became the focal point for this layout.  After adding the cute photo of Vincent I raided my stash for a little of this and that to complete the page.
