Congrats



Yes it was that time of the year for graduations and my oldest grand daughter was graduating from Grade 8.  Of Grandma had to be present and had to take many many photos.

To create this layout I used Kreaxions punch #904 in many ways. I used it to create the border. I used it to create the doily after I used the circle cutter first to create a circle.  I love the way this layout turned out.

Apple of My Eye

Today is my day up on the Just Imagine/Kreaxions blog and I am working with one of my favourite topics.  

This little girl is certainly the apple of her father's eye.  I am certainly blessed to have the privilege of scrapbooking her photos.

To create this gorgeous layout I worked with Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #905 and I used it in a couple of ways.  First I used it to create the border on the Patterned paper, I also used it to create the corners on the green paper, and once again to create a bit of a border on the green paper.  These couple of things really set of this layout perfectly and gives it enough interest that it really doesn't need much else in the way of embellishments.

Creating a Beautiful All Occasion Card with Your Punch

Hi, it's my turn up on the Just Imagine/Kreaxions blog again today andI want to show you how to create a stunning card using punch # 310 and the Circle Cutter.


 I started with a piece of white cardstock  6" X 9" and created a fold at the 4.5" mark. Then I cut a piece of pink cardstock 6" X 4.5" and adhered it to the front of my card. Next I cut another piece of patterned paper 5.5" X 4", using my Pitt Artist Black pen I made faux stitching all the way around the edge and then adhered it to the front of my card. I cut another piece of matching patterned paper 5.5" X 1" and adhered it to the center of the card.

I used the Circle Cutter and cut a piece of brown cardstock, the used the #310 punch to punch around the cardstock to get the doily.

I then cut 9 - 1inch hearts.  I used the same punch to punch each side of the hearts, then I folded them in half. I glued the folded hearts to a one inch circle to form the flower which I adhered to the center of my card. Now I have a very pretty card which can be used for any occasion.

Boys Will be Boys


Today is my team's day on the ScrapMuch? blog and we had this terrific double page sketch to work with. I loved it and I had the perfect photos to use with it. I think Skylar has to be one of the funnest (is that a word?) kids I have had the pleasure of scrapping, he has so many different faces and he doesn't mind using them in the photos. His mother must have had so much delight photographing him while he was growing up.

I used the Carta Bella Boy oh Boy collection for this layout. I also used Kreaxions punch #919 to create the beautiful border. The title was created using my Cameo and the Jokerman font.


Thanks for visiting my blog, I would really love to hear what you have to say, so please leave a comment.

Tree Climber

    I am not sure what it is about children and trees but it seems that the two go together like wine and cheese.

    Today is my day up on the Just Imagine/Kreaxions Blog so I'm sharing a couple of ways to use Punch #303.  First I used it to create the pretty edge on the bottom of the paper. Then I used the circle cutter to create a mat for my photo. I decided to use the punch at this point to give the mat a doily appearance.

Gift Boxes

Hello everyone, it's my day on the Just Imagine/Kreaxions Blog again and today I have a couple of gorgeous gift boxes to share with you.

I created these fabulous 4 X 4 boxes using Kreaxions circle cutter and Punch # 905.  I used the circle cutter to cut the circle in the center of the box top, then using Stencil B I marked of the lines to use the punch with the positioning parts to create the gorgeous center.  I used the punch without any inserts to create the border.  I used the punched hearts around the bottom of the boxes.  I liked the boxes so much that I made two of them.

Journey Journal

For my assignment today on Just Imagine/Kreaxions, I decided to do a journal for my Journey into Health and Fitness using Kreaxions punch # 904. To create the lovely circle inset, I first cut the circle using the Kreaxions circle cutter and Stencil A, then I used the punch with the 8cm insert. I used the punch with Insert C to create the corners. To create the border I used the punch without any insert. I used the positive piece and turned it upside down and then used the negative piece below it and turned it upside down as well. I just drew a few hearts on the paper. This punch is amazing what you can do with the one punch.

Little Stinker

Hey there, it's Team A's reveal for ScrapMuch? today and what a wonderful sketch we had to work with.. LOVED IT!!!

Here is the sketch we used this week:


Here is my interpretation of this sketch. To create this lovely layout, I used a mixture of Echo Park papers. The border was created using Kreaxions Punch #301 and the title was cut using my Cameo and a cut file from Miss Kate's Cutables.

I have to say that I am loving my Cameo.. I am still having some problems with it but for the most part it is awesome.

Happy Father's Day

Today is a day when we honour all the Father's in our lives.  I lost my father many years ago but I still miss him today.  He was very precious to me. He was a carpenter by trade and I remember watching him build many things. So when I had to create something for the reveal for Just Imagine/Kreaxions, what a better way to remember my Dad, then to create a tool box, and what Dad wouldn't be delighted to receive this delightful little tool box for Father's day?
 To create this little box I used the Prima's Craftsman paper collection. I used Kreaxion's punch # 905 to create the border for the perfect finishing touch and I used the circle cutter to cut the tag. I used my Cameo and cutting files from Silhoutte to cut the tools.

Just Imagine/Kreaxions Blog Hop

Welcome to the Just Imagine/Kreaxions Blog Hop. So Happy you stopped by. We are sharing 3 days of all things Spring.

See our unique "4 in 1 punches" and our amazing Circle cutter that will cut up to a 10" circle on the smallest of surfaces.




For my project I decided to do this Photo Frame. I started with a plain wooden picture frame, which I coated with gesso and then painted with a bright yellow paint. Then I cut white cardstock to fit the frame, and used the Kreaxions punch # 309 with insert A to punch around the inside of the frame. I then glued that cardstock to the frame. Next I used Basic Grey's Nook and Pantry paper and punch #309 without an insert and punched a border, then using just the negative part of the border I glued that to the frame to edge it. Then I added a few flowers and some ribbon to finish of this beautiful frame.

I am still scrapping!

     I may be doubled over with pain half the time but yes, I am still scrapping.  It really doesn't matter because no matter what I do, I can't get comfortable, so I may as well scrap.  I sure hope they get off their tushes and get all the tests booked soon so I can find out what is causing the pain.  Tonight I had tacos for supper and it took almost 4 hours for the pain to subside. Last time it was a peanut butter sandwich and a handful or potato chips that caused pain for an entire afternoon.  I am not liking this pain, it makes sitting so hard to do, lying down is just downright uncomfortable no matter which way you lie.
    But on to the scrapping, the only thing I do love LOL

     I am sorry but with so much pain controlling me I haven't been keeping track of what I have used for these layouts.. I have scrapped with only one thing in mind.. DISTRACTION!  Keep my mind from the pain as much as possible.


For this one I did use a paper piecing for the little kite.

I handmade the flowers on this layout.



I am slowly working away on the Wedding album. I am happy to say that so far she is very happy with all that I have done on it.
