All Things Sparkly

There is a Design Team Reveal up on the Just Imagine Crafts Kreaxions Punches Blog. Be sure to check out the bolg to see what the rest of the design team did for the theme “All Things Sparkly”. I created this {Celebrate} card using the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #305 with no insert. I made border strips and then attached them to my card base. The Kreaxions punches make the best border strips … not to mention all the things you can do with the punches if you use the stencils and the positioning parts - unlimited possibilities!

Leave a comment on this blog post and I’ll pick a random winner to receive

Christmas Gift Tag

There is just something special about making your own gift tags for your presents. I made this one using the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #312 with no insert to punch a snowflake border on the edge of the tag. I then used the negative piece to add some depth. I created the doily using the Kreaxions star stencil and the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #902 with the A insert. I gave the tag a vintage feel by bleaching the edges of the tag and doily. The snowflake was cut using my Cricut and the Accent Essentials cartridge.

Christmas Project

I was reorganizing some of my scrappy supplies and found a couple of 7 Gypsies Printers Trays in my hoarded supplies … I mean stash. I don’t even know how long I have had these but decided I needed to do something with at least one of them. So with the 7 Gypsies tray and the new Authentique “Glistening” Collection and a few bits and pieces from my stash I completed this Christmas project.


I’m using this project for my December Mini Crop Challenge at Turtle Soup. My challenge is for you to use snow flakes on your altered project, layout, card, tag or ATC. Check out the details in the Turtle Soup Forum. Hope you can find some time during this busy holiday season to play along.

Christmas Gift Boxes

Thinking of small gifts for the grandson’s teachers (that they will actually use) can be a challenge. But who couldn’t use some cute winter printed tissues and some hand sanitizer? I used my Cricut and the Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge to make the boxes out of Kraft paper. I used the Kreaxions Star Stencil and the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch # 915 with the A insert to make the doilies.  Adding the doilies, some twine, a button and some jingle bells turned these plain little boxes into cute Christmas gift boxes.

Christmas Banner

I’m sharing a little project that I finished up just in time for the December countdown till Christmas. When I saw the Cozy Collection from My Mind’s Eye, I knew it would be perfect for this banner. I got the tags at the paper store aka Hollo’s Paper Crafts. They were cheap … like 2 or 3 cents apiece. So of course I bought a lot of them. It’s a good thing because I have used them in so many crafty projects. Anyway … I covered the tags with patterned paper and then added all the cute die cuts, so quick and easy. This little banner is a perfect addition to my holiday d├ęcor.

Turtle Soup December DT Sketch Reveal

Today the December Design Team Sketch Reveal is up at Turtle Soup. Bev Code provided us with yet another amazing sketch.

This is my take on the sketch.

Be sure to check out the forum and be inspired by what the rest of the Design Team has done. I’m always amazed at how many different looks you can get from following one sketch.
