Paper Girls Challenge #16 - BABY

My page Just having FUN is perfect for the Paper Girls Challenge #16 - Baby.
This is me when I was 1 playing with the toilet paper and holder. Who ever said we needed toys to have some fun. I used Jillibean Soup product, fun shapes, metal,
twine and doodling to finish this fun page.

so many HATS and so many CIRCLES

Hi .. so glad you could pop in today. We at Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions Punches are alway boasting about the best circle cutter ever. We don't say it because we are part of the DT .. it's because we ourselves have never found anything better.. and just wish we had it sooner to use.
On this page I used the big circle to start and lightly folded it into quarters and half again. I then cut the smaller double half circles all around the big circle ... evenly spacing them.
You have to use double sided paper so that when you fold the half circle over it shows another  part of the paper pattern and the cardstock background pops through the open section.
I also used Kreaxions Punch # 309  to make the matted border section.
I added some clustered accents, doodled some and copic coloured the chipboard title.
I also used the circkle cutter on the circle photos.. it's perfect and so easy.

Here is a close up of the punched border and the half circles that made this page what it is.
I used Jillibean Soup - Watermelon Gazpacho Soup  and the corrigated accents
to create this fun and bright page. This idea for half circles was also inspired
by Kate Vickers project on Jillibean but was a card not a layout.

Thanks for stopping by...

Let's Get Sketchy

Let's Get Sketchy has an amazing sketch today.... but they are always amazing.... so be sure to check them out every week on Mondays and play along with us. I went really base layered on this one. Added some fun gesso with my new stencil on the bottom corner to base the clustered corner.
Twine and bling were perfect with the metal key accent with these fun 15th Birthday photos of my GD. They grow up so quickly. The cute butterfly and bird were great accents and lovin' the white gel pen doodling lately too.

. I am submitting this to Scrap Scene WIP Mondays... check it out.

My Sketch World & the 1 Hour Sketch using Jillibean Soup

I had so much fun tonight playing along at My Sketch World doing the OHSC with Ginni. She's a great hostess and Lucy's sketches are the best. I used my fun collection by Jillibean Soup and it's perfect with my cute photos of our Niagara Falls trip where GD tried on many
 hats in the souvenir store. She was adorable and posed for me.
This is page 1 and I'll have to follow it up with
 part 2 and share with you....

Momenta and Halloween

Halloween is in the air and making these pages was fun.
 I played with different mediums doing backgrounds first before applying paper, accents
and photos. This one I used stamps and ink with a touch of paint too. I hand cut the tomb stones and
pumpkins from the Momenta papers, Copic coloured the cute Meljen's Pumpkin and added the title.
The cat is a stamped image and then fussy cut to fit in the background.

On this one I painted by hand the background web design.
I drew the haunted house accent using Signo white gel pen.
Digitals are sentiments to title my page which are Meljen's Design and copic markers.
Doodled stitching lines are with Signo white gel pen.
Supply List:
Paper: Momenta PK 2268
Sticker: Momenta PK 2268
Digital Sentiments: Meljen's Design
Markers: Copic
Pen: Signo white gel, Staedtler black
Paint: Deco Art

Other: Ribbon, foam pop ups
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again... have a great weekend.

Let's Get Sketchy is revealing the DT's interpretation of the fabulous sketch today... be sure to visit and see what everyone reveals and also play along with us. I am posting this fun layout without photos because it's for a gift album.. but it turned out amazing using the sketch below. It had such great accent possibilities and fun clustered sections to play with. I added a layered punched border using Kreaxions Punch #303 and the fall away piece too all which was matted to pop the punch work.
Cute tags, twine and brads are only a few of the fun items I added.

Sketchers and Momenta

Hi .. so glad to share this with you. This is only the 2nd DT reveal with Sketchers .. a new sketch site that would love for you to join us and play along. I really went crazy and wild with Momenta fun kids paper (PA 2333) since I had these too cute photos. So many fun faces of Sammy are just adorable.
I added bold plainer background behind the photos as to soften the  busy background which is full of fun  elements. I added Momenta titles and accents.. banners, chipboard, words and lots of pop up stickers. I used black pen and doodled and outlined a few things.
Stop by and see what the rest of the DT of sketchers have to reveal.. and remember to play along with us too.

Christmas Banner




I am going to put you in the mood today for Christmas.. yeah I know way to early but it's
fun to play along and make things for xmas when your not rushed off your feet with
so many other tasks and you can enjoy your time crafting. It will be here soon enough.
I used Little Yellow Bicycle chipboard and Simple Stories 25 Days of Christmas paper and accents. I threw in some glossy accents, stickles, buttons and a few misc accents from my stash.

I really enjoyed sharing this with you today.
I have sent this finished banner to the Scrapping Bug so you can see it on display
next time your in the store. Thanks for stopping by.


Fabulous Day - Horseshoe Tournament & Corn Roast

We celebrate yearly with a Horseshoe Tournament and Corn Roast. As many family and friends join us that can. Those that love to play shoes do .. some only watch... the little kids enjoy the trampoline, swings and the water is always a favourite. This year we had the use of 6 kayaks which kept the kids happy and busy. We all catch up with what's going on in our lives. So spending time with the people is amazing, the food is pot luck and so good and everyone has a great time.

My page is slightly monochromatic using My Sketch World sketch below ... which is September's layout of the month by Lucy who has amazing sketches. 
I love using my Just Imagine Crafts / Kreaxions Circle Cutter. This page has lots of different size circles that are so quick and easy to make with such an amazing small tool that
can be used on such a small space when cutting. Some are single, some double and popped up and some are large and inked and distresssed. .... so many options.
I added some cricut cut titling with journal strips, twine and brad accents, Robins' Nest dew drops and lots
of fun stitching. I doodled some outlines to help pop the pieces.

I am linking this to Scrap Scene WIP Mondays. 
Sure glad you could join me today..

Fun Punched Card

Hi.. and how are you today? I am fabulous and welcome to Just Imagine Crafts as I am ready to share  this fun card. I started with a circle cut with Kreaxions Circle Cutter. (TIP) If you don't have the placements stencils.. punch the circle using the time clock.. at 12 - 6 - 3  - 9... from here decide if you have room to line up 1 or 2 more punched in between. On this one i did 2 punches in between and it is perfect.
I only planned on using the small punched circle but when it was all done and all the pieces lay in front of me I changed my mind and put them all back together after I inked the edges to make them pop a bit more.
I use Kreaxions Punch #916 on the circle and also made a matching border strip. Adding some more colour and accents from Jellibean Soup product and I have a cute card. I used the sketch below from a challenge this month at The Scrapping Bug and turned it sideways.
 Thanks for stopping by today and hope to see you more often .. check out the posts by all the DT

Lisa in my scrappy room on her visit to Canada

I used Jillibean Soup with some fun colour to share Lisa's family trip to Canada. We had an amazing time. Next time I hope they can stay longer and that  we get more scrappy time together. This is the page sharing the bit of time that we had in my scrappy room.
At Cookin Up Creations the challenge is the sketch and to use the work "Explore" on the page. It was perfect for my page above and love the bright, fun layers with 2 photos the same but one in black n white and one in colour.. this is the My Sketch World Labor Day Crop Challenge for the letter D for double photo the same. As you all know I love multi tasking.

Colorful Creations and Twisted Blueprints #11 with ME

Colorful Creations and Twisted Blueprints #11 (with ME). I am so excited to have my first Twisted Blueprint sketch with a twist to share with you. The twist is to add a tag of some type .. your choice. My page has 2 photos instead of 3 but I misted and accented the corner.
I added some fun stitching to the background, grouped a cluster of elements in 3 spots and added buttons and twine. You have a week to play along and post your finished creation with us... hope to see your project too.

Let''s Get Sketchy Monday

Let's Get Sketchy is starting a new term with lots of old and new DT. The reveal is amazing.
Be sure to check it out. My page is about our trip with friends to Niagara Falls when they came to visit
from Wisconsin for a few days. It was amazing and fun to show them such
a beautiful site ...the American and Canadian falls.
I used the fabulous sketch below. It was perfect. I flipped it sideways to
 accommodate the photos. The mix of papers and accents were perfect
 with the colouring in the photos.  I added some stitching,
Robins' Nest dew drops, some doodling and used washi tape for the first time.
