Today I am sharing this bright and shiny (each little circle on here is coated with stickles) birthday card I created for this month's Kreaxions/Just Imagine Design Team Challenge. I broke out some Bo Bunny papers and used my #920 Kreaxions punch to punch along the edge of the card!

Today I am sharing this layout created with my #907 punch. But did you notice? 2 different borders??? And I only used 1 punch! I punched the top border with the Kreaxions #907 punch. The bottom border is the "tear away" strip that is left after punching the top border! A guess what it works with almost every one of there punches! Hope you try them out!

Today I am sharing this page I created for Kreaxions/Just Imagine. I started by cutting 2 circles with my circle cutter. I used the stencil to mark the back side of my black cardstock and then punched along the stencil lines. I added some bling to the center of my punch outs.

Today I am sharing my take on Bev Code's Card sketch for Turtle Soup/Scrapping Turtle. Here is her sketch.
I did flip the flower accent to the other side. I embossed the background to give a little more interest to the white space. Hop on over the Turtle Soup to play along!

Today I am sharing this Photo Op layout I create for Just Imagine/Kreaxions. To create this layout I started by creating a larger phot0 mat and punching the edge with my #904 punch. I then added the punched doily in gold behind my photo. To create the doily I used my circle cutter to cut the circle, then used my A template to mark the back of my circle and punched along the lines using my #924 punch.

Today I am sharing this super fun layout using only border strips for my background. For the strips I used my #919 punch and the left over strip! I absolutely love that each border punch really gives you 2 different strips!!! I love how just using the border strips of this "loud" paper seemed to tone it down just a tad. Can't wait to see what you create!

Today I am sharing a favorite technique to spice up a photo mat. I chose my #916 Kreaxions punch to punch along the edges of my photo mat. I Love how it really makes a photo mat POP! I also used my handy Kreaxions circle cutter to cut my journal block.

Today sharing this cool boys layout using my Kreaxion's punches. For this layout I started with the star template and added the 907 punch with the A insert to create the star doily in the background. I then added a border strip created using the #909 with the A insert. I saved the punch outs from the 909 to add to the corners and as accents to my page.

Today I am sharing my take on this week's sketch for Sketches in Thyme! I also used this sketch to create my challenge for Scrapping Turtle's Mini Crop. The sketch called for 3 photos but I replace 2 of the photos with tags and then instead of added a circle, I used a cicrle as a mask and inked around the circle. I then added faux stitching along the circle outline.

HI! Today I am sharing this 2 page layout I created using Kreaxions #920 punch. To create the bottom border strips I used my #920 punch along the edge. The to create the top border I used the "scrap" leftover from punching out that border. Isn's it cool that with one punch you can have 2 different borders!!!!!!

I did use a black journaling pen to fill in any parts of the road that did not stamp,
Since the Tin Man was walking up the road I stamped him "on top" of the Yellow Brick Road.
To color the Yellow Brick Road, I outlined each brick with my Fossilized Amber Distress Marker and then spread the ink with my water brush.
The lion was colored with Brushed Corduroy and Tea Dye Distress Markers
I then inked the backgrounds with my distress tool and Weathered Wood Distress Ink Pad. I then stamped OZ over the backgrounds.
The create the sayings I stamped the quotes onto white cardstock and then cut the quotes apart and attached to each card.
To create the back of each card I stamped the ATC stamp and colored the image with Copic Markers
Here is a close up of each ATC and the Back.

Scrapping Turtle. I was disappointed that we didn't get to tour Ford;s Theatre but made sure that the kids saw it and discussed its history.
