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.

Love


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.

Birthday In A Jar

My mother-in-law recently gave me some canning jars (mason jars). I have found so many uses for them in my crafting projects! One being this “Birthday In A Jar”. How fun would it be to receive this?!!!

I just took a mason jar and decorated the outside with supplies I had from my scrapbooking stash.



The inside of the jar includes the following:
(You would be surprised with how much you can fit in a jar.)
Party hat
Party horn
Balloons
Bag of confetti
A Hostess cupcake
Candle
Book of matches
Gift card bag

Altered Checkbook Cover

Every few months I make a trip to Hollo’s PaperCraft store. I love this place and can buy quality paper by the pound. When I went in June I purchased 17 pounds of paper. Besides paper they have a little bit of this and that. Every once in awhile I find that unexpected something. This last visit was no exception. I found these plastic checkbook covers that just had alter me written all over them … and so I did.



 



I used the positive and negative punched pieces from the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #310
and the negative punched pieces from the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #912.
(These pieces were actually left over from the wreath I made.)
Be sure to check out the Just Imagine Crafts Kreaxions Punches Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team did this week.
