A Wedding card


Hi, it's Chris here today.  Every year during the holidays I hear of new engagements.  So I decided to get a jump start on the wedding season and create this wedding card! For this card I created the heart doily using punch #917 on a 4 inch circle cut with the Kreaxions cutter cutter.  I then used the #917 punch again with the C insert to create a matching border.  I then used 2 of the gold hearts leftover from the punchouts inside the card.

Look at those trees

While in Yellowstone I was amazed by all the trees, alive and dead.  I love looking at the dead trees showing evidence of all the hot spots moving around.  You can see live trees right on the edges of the pools, then the hot spot shift just a tiny bit and kills off those trees.  For this layout I use this week's Nuts about Sketches sketch #349 and of course my Kreaxions circle cutter.

Santa is Coming to Town


I am here today sharing this Santa card!  To create this card I  matted the stamped image on cardstock using my Kreaxions circle cutter.  I then palced the matted image on doily I created using the Kreaxions Star Template and Punch # 914 with the "A" positioning parts. I just love how the doily turned out!

I was Here

Here is the proof that I actually go on vacations with my family.  So often I forget to hand over my camera to make sure I am in the pictures too.  AS you can see in the photos, I am still with my camera,  but my hubby managed to snap a few shots of me :D .  I remember this day, it started out warm and then the temperature drop very rapidly.  Just look at how windy it was--my hair is standing straight out!!.  For this layout I used this week's Nuts about Sketches #347,  my Kreaxions circle cutter, I really love that tool, and some MME Market Street papers from a My Creative Scrapbook kit.

More Yellowstone Hot Spots

For this layout I used Sketch #346 from Nuts about Sketches.  I love how many photos there were in the sketch! Absolutely perfect for my vacation photos!  Here I added a lot of miscellaneous hot spots in the geyser basins.  I love how you can see the steam rolling off these! You may notice I used my handy Kreaxions circle cutter again.  I love how that little tool cuts circles within circles!

Just Imagine Blog Hop

Welcome to Just Imagine's December Blog Hop.  If you came here from Joan's blog, then you are in the right spot.  If you are starting here, be sure to start at the beginning so you don't miss out on any inspiration from these very talented ladies.

For my project I made this lovely Christmas ornament.  I started with thick glittery paper and used the Just Imagine/Kreaxions circle cutter to cut out the circles.  I then used Just Imagine/Kreaxions template to mark my punch guideline and used Punch #312 (Snowflake) on the interior and exterior taking care to line up my flakes.  I repeated this 4 times, then folded each circle in half and attached it to another circle.  I used some fishing line, glued in place with some clear snowflakes I had in my stash. 

Now be sure to hop on over to the next blog for some more inspiration.
