Nightmare on our Street

Its no secret that Halloween is big at our house!  I created this layout for this month's Design Team reveal at Just Imagine/Kreaxions. I used the Kreaxions circle cutter and the #310 punch with the "A" circle template to create the doily.  I love the look of the black doily!!  So do you decorate for Halloween??

Riverside Geyser


I created this layout using this week's sketch from Nuts about Sketches (#341).  I even hand sewed on the layout!  Something I haven't done in a long time!  I use the circle wreath on the paper as the circle on the sketch!  I love it when the paper does the work for me!  Do you use sketches?  What do you look for in a sketch?

Happy Birthday from One Old Crow to Another


I created this cute birthday card created using the Kreaxions circle cutter and #903 punch.  To create this doily I used the Kreaxions circle cutter to cut a 12 cm circle and then cut a 5.6 cm circle out from the center of that circle.  I then used the circle stencils to mark the punching lines.  I punched the inside of the circle first using the positioning parts.  After punching the outside of the circle, I backed the doily with a contrasting color to help the flowers "pop".
Products Used:
Tim Holtz Embossing Folder, Clear Dollar Stamp Stamps
Kreaxions Circle Cutter
Circle cutter1
Circle positioning Parts
Positioning Parts
903 Punch

Our Time- Kreaxions and NAS reveal


Check out  this super fun layout of me (that's right I actually have a picture of me  on a layout!) and my son.  For this layout, I used this week's Sketch from Nuts about Sketches! The sketch called for lots of circles which were a breeze to cut out with the kreaxions Circle Cutter!  I thought the half circle at the top of the layout looked a little plain, so I "dressed" it up a bit but using the circle templates and the 903 punch.  I then added the doily behind the flower using the star template and the 903 punch with the "A" inserts.

Products used:
Nuts about Sketches Sketch 339
Fancy Pants Burlap and Bows
Kreaxions #903 (alone and with "A" inserts)
Kreaxions Circle Cutter
Circle cutter1
Kreaxions Star template
Star Stencil
Kreaxions Circle Stencils
