Sympathy Card


Today  I am sharing this soothing sympathy card.  I never seem to have sympathy cards made up in advance, and then I struggle to make them when I need them.  So to make this card I started simple using a soothing blue background paper from Kaiser Kraft that had white roses on it.  I then cut out a 6 1/2 inch circle using my Kreaxions Circle cutter. I marked the punch location on the back of my circle using the A template.  I used my #919 punch on the lines to create the doily.  I put them all together and stamped my sentiment for a quick but soothing card!

Artists Paint Pots

Yesterday started this month's mini crop at Turtle Soup.  This month the Design Team is challenging members to use their stash.  My challenge is to use those punches that may be (or may not be) collecting dust.  I used 2 different butterfly punches, a flower punch and a border punch from Kreaxions. Besure to jump in and play along

Today I am sharing my take on this week's Sketches in Thyme  sketch by Shawn Lahr.  A you may remember I was so sad when Nuts about Sketches took a break from doing sketches.  So I decided to try out for another sketch team at Sketches in Thyme and made it !!!  When the was announced, I discovered Shawn was there and then I found out I was on her sketch team and got to continue playing with her sketches!!!!!!  This layout is another animal layout from Yellowstone.  I used some old Sass a Fras Lass stamps for the stitching and then added Sin City Stamps for the title.  I also played with a new toy modge podge melts here for the flower centers and the butterfly.

HI! Today I am sharing this layout I created using Kreaxions punches!For this layout I used Kreaxions #907  to create the border strip.  I then used Kreaxions #307 with the positioning part B to create the corner inlays.  I love how many different ways there are to use these punches!
