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.)

Beach Day

The Design Team Reveal is up today on the Just Imagine Crafts/ Kreaxions Punches Blog. I completed a layout of Jessica and Gracelynn from one of their beach day trips. I made the doily at the top of the page using the star stencil and the Kreaxions Punch #303 with the “A” insert. I created the border strips using the Kreaxions Punch #303 with no insert. I utilized both the positive and negative pieces.

Traveling Art Journal

Today is Friday and that means a Design Team project for the Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions Punches Blog.

I had the opportunity to be a part of a traveling art journal group. How fun! I loved seeing all the other participants entries in the journal. My project for today is my entry in the art journal. I used the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #310 to create the border strips. I used both the positive and negative pieces. I find myself using my Kreaxions punches on all most all of my paper crafting projects.

 
 
I love the detail this punch adds to the page.

Patriotic Wreath

I thought I would celebrate the sprit of independence by making a patriotic wreath. I used the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #912 and the circle cutter. This punch added the perfect touch to the paper medallions and to me says fireworks.

Week 23

Today is Friday and that means a Design Team project for the Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions Punches Blog.

For today’s project I created a page for baby Vincent’s album. This is Charlene at 6 months (23rd week). I love getting out my messy supplies to create with! Using the Kreaxions punches to create border strips has become one of my go-to techniques for adding that “extra something” to my pages. For this page I created the border strips using the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch # 303.

Peat Pots

The last time I was in Target I found a sleeve of peat pots in the $1.00 bin. I had no idea what I was going to do with them at the time. But for $1.00 could I go wrong?! I knew I would find something to do with them.
I came home and started looking on Pinterest (I LOVE Pinterest!) and discovered altered peat pots. I’m just going to say this is my new favorite thing to alter. The possibilities are endless!

Ahoy

I had the opportunity to work with the My Mind’s Eye Now & Then Izzy Decorative Stickers … and I love them! So many ways to use them. My mother made this sailor dress for my daughter Jessica. It happened to be one of those precious things I saved. Jessica’s daughter Gracelynn got to wear it too. The My Mind’s Eye Now & Then Izzy Decorative Stickers where the perfect accents for this layout. Be sure to check out the Scrapping Turtle Blog to see other creative ways the Design Team used these decorative stickers.
