Terrifically Thrilling Thursday at Just Imagine Crafts with Kreaxions Punches

Welcome everyone.. and good day. Today I am sharing a fun, bright coloured card. I used the Kreaxions circle cutter to start the size of the centre circle. Then using the stencil I marked off with lines the spots to punch around  the circle. The fun floral Kreaxions Punch is #910 and was perfect with the theme of the card. I matted the centre with light green and white polka dots and the outer edge of the punched florals I matted with a dark shade of pink.I added fun accents, some borders on the edges and doodled the white gel pen lines to pop off the card. Punches whether they are plain or intricate are perfect for any project. Thanks for stopping by today and check out the other projects by the DT at Just Imagine Crafts.

Let's Get Sketchy and Sketch by ME?

 So if you haven't noticed... I LOVE SKETCHES... using them and making them too. This week at Let's Get Sketchy it was my sketch that was up. I had great fun using it too.... and love sharing what I do with sketches.

Sketchers, Memorable Seasons and Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions

Sketchers #5 was perfect for the multi photo page. It also was a Memorable Season's Members
Challenge Us Crop with Patricia..... no peeking and pick 3 patterned papers from 3 different colour piles
without looking and then use them. My papers are shown below and the page above is finished
using them plus background cardstock and accents.
I used Kreaxions Punches #913 & #916 which I matted both so they would pop more
for the double borders.


Sketchers and DT Call

                                   Sketchers is having a DT Call.. so for all of you that love to
                                             work with sketches be sure to check it out.

Here is my page using the sketch.. added more photos and changed it up a bit but love the finished page.
I am submitting this to the DT Call and also a challenge this month to use metal...
which is the cute key tied to the bow.
I used some light misting in the background, some layers that had some shape, some rubons, doodling,
lace, buttons and some inked edges.

OMG August already..

OMG it's August already.. and the kids either are back to school or will be way too soon.
I dug out some old photos of the girls 1st day back to school and used a twisted sketch by Sisterhood of Scrap, a challenge from MSW, some Momenta Product and last but not least incorporated a Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions Punch #904.
I wanted to share this simple but fun page to show you that multi tasking with so many challenges and creating pages that do double duty makes it so much easier to complete and love playing at lots of fun and creative sites online.
Also that since this is my post using Punches today.. it is so easy to use punches everyday on every project. Just leave them out on your work space... a few different ones all the time and use them. It's an amazing but so simple accent that adds punch to any page, card or creation.
Thanks for stopping by today...
Supply List:
Cardstock: Black n white
Paper and accents: Momenta PA 2500

I love DOODLING. It all started when I didn't have a sew machine with me and
I started doodling a stitch line using either a Micron black line or a Signo white gel line.
 From there I used it with copic images to detail the image and then
 I played with zentangle and I have never looked back.
Here is my double page layout using lots of doodling, hand drawn images, journal strips,
 and other misc letters and numbers plus some fun photo frames.

Full photo of page 1 to view.

Terrifically Thrilling Thursday

I have been working on a Baby Album as a gift so the mom can add the
photos and journaling along the way.
This cute page "Smile" needed a grounding base and what
perfect accents but Kreaxions Punch  #305 with a touch of inked edges to pop the border.

I used the amazing kit from Scrapping Bug for the month of August...
added a doiley and a couple of accents to finish it off.
Simple things like inking, using a staple to attach the ribbon, added a cluster of Prima bling stones, covered the chipboard with paper, tie a bow, some strips and a
banner all completed this fun, cute page for the babies 1st album.

Detailed close ups.
Cluster included ribbon tied bow for the MSW Olympic challenge.

Also added ribbon with a staple to side of photo
and enlarged section show cases the inked punched section.

Still working with my Scrapping Bug Kit I did page 2 of the double for
the gifted baby album only this page is for a photo of the
bigger brother. On this page I used the fall away pieces from the punched section...
and from previous kit pages I used the left over circles.
MSW challenge was to use a piece of metal on the page which I
tied on with twine.

Some close up shots. Here is some fun mixed alpha and part of the circles.

Close up of the tied metal pieces and on the left
are the strips I saved from the bottoms of the papers. They were perfect
for this page.
