Thankful Card and a giveaway

There is a Design Team Reveal up on the Just Imagine Crafts/ Kreaxions Punches Blog today.

The theme this month was “Fall”. I created this card using up my paper scraps from other projects and my favorite tool the “Kreaxions Circle Cutter”. After cutter the circles I distressed the edges and then inked them. I applied the circles to the tree and then added the buttons.

This “Kreaxions Circle Cutter” is so easy to use. You turn the paper instead of the cutter making perfect circles every time. You can make circles up to 10 inches big.

Leave a comment on my blog and your name will be entered into a random drawing for a free Kreaxions Circle Cutter.

Halloween Treat Box

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

Today’s project is a Halloween treat box. I created the box using my Cricut and the Sweet Tooth Boxes Cartridge. I punched the border on the lid using the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #921 with the A insert.  I backed it with purple cardstock to make it pop. I created the doily on the top of the box using the Kreaxions Circle CutterStencil B and the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #921 with 6.8 (small) Positioning Parts.


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

Tuesday Tip

I have the Tuesday Tips, Tools and Techniques Challenge at Turtle Soup today.  Be sure to check out Turtle Soup to see the other inspiring challenges that are posted this week by the Design Team.
I think every scrapbooker has a stash of letter stickers … I do. I have a wide variety of letter stickers that are plain, colorful, patterned and in all sizes.

On this layout I used a different letter sticker style for each word/line.

Here are ten other ideas for using up those letter stickers:

1) Create an accent with someone’s initials
2) When making a title, use a different style of letter sticker for each letter of the title
3) To highlight a word, replace one word in your journaling with letter stickers
4) To create a bold title, draw a box around each letter sticker
5) Embellish letter stickers with glitter
6) Use a letter sticker as the first letter of a paragraph
7) Stitch on letter stickers
8) Layer letter stickers, to create a 3-dimensional effect
9) Place letter stickers over a photo, as a caption
10) Embellish letter stickers with sequins

Nominated for a Creative Blogger

Hello Creative friends, I am super excited and so thrilled to have been nominated as a Creative Blogger by Bev Code (Bee Cee Creativity). Her blog is full of inspiration and creativity that you won’t want to miss!

1. What am I working on? Right now I’m working on a few mixed media projects. Who knew you could have so much fun with canvas, Gesso, Modelling Paste, paint, stencils and inks?!

2. How does my work differ from others of its genre? I love trying new techniques so my work is forever changing.

3. Why do I create what I do? I scrapbook and paper craft for me … it’s fun. It’s a creative outlet and a way to preserve the past for the present and the present for the future.

4. How does my creative process work? I don’t have a set creative process. It’s what inspires me at the moment.

I have a lot of what I will call messy supplies.  So I gathered them up and instead of
asking how am I going to use them or why I don't use them ... I asked why not
try something new ... why not experiment and have fun ...
and so I did!  It's not so much about the
finished project as much as it is about the process.

Fall Banner

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


I cut out the banner using my Cricut and the Pretty Pennants Cartridge. I cut out the leaves using the Flower Shoppe Cartridge and embossed them with my Cuddlebug. The medallions were made by punching strips of patterned paper with the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch # 921 with no insert.  Punching the edge of the medallions with the Krexions punch added that "something special" to the project and so much detail!   To complete the medallions I cut scalloped circles from the Cricut Birthday Bash Cartridge and the letters from the Plantin SchoolBook Cartridge.
