You get a new challenge every Friday to be done by the following Wednesday.
Voting is done on Thursday and the survivors start all ove again on Friday with a new challenge.
This week is LSS #3 and here is my page. We have to show as many
ways as we can to showcase the edges of our paper.
I did so many fun things to my edges:
 doodled,matted and popped, ripped/distressed, perfect pearls, sticker stitches,inked, sandpaper, framed border corner strips, punched,stencil with gesso.
Below is the condensed closeups with test to list my edges.

On this page I also used Lily Bee Design- Buttercup,
Kreaxions Punch 309, and SRM stitches and sentiment stickers.

Here is my LSS#2 page which the challenge was to use
 as many embossing techniques as we could.

I dry embossed 4 pieces and used ink, paint, perfect pearls, and stickles on them.
Below you can see the details and text explained photo.

On this page I used My Minds Eye - the sweetest thing
and SRM stitches and scallops.


LSS #1 challenge was to be creative with hearts.

 Below you can see the close up of my hearts.

I masked and misted hearts and added the glitter heart to the cluster.

Hope you are lovin' this post enough to check out how everyone is doing and
maybe even vote along this week on Wednesday to help me go through to the next round.
Thanks for stopping by.


Lovin' LIFE

I am honoured to be doing Sunday card Challenge over at My Scraps and More.
Always trying to mix it up abit.
Well for all that know me I am on Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions punch team...
so how fitting to make a card using punches.
There are so many things you can do with punches.

So the above close up shows the Kreaxions #301 using insert B
 and then cutting off the extra piece.

In the  close up you can see that I matted the whole piece to pop the corners...
I cut the centre out and used matching print  to accent it.
Matting and popping the fun SRM Sticker Sentiment is perfect
and then used the SRM stitch stickers to add more detail accents to the card.
I cut 4 more corners the same and reversed the colour combo
 and cut into squares for the corners.
Kreaxions Punch #301 can be found here.
Thanks for joining me today.

Hi  and welcome to Just Imagine Crafts.
Today I'm taking time to show you in more detail what
I used to make the fun card below.
above I traced and cut the Star.

Then using Kreaxions punch #911 with insert piece A you insert 1 star point
 at a time into the punch as above and punch all around.

If you like the finished shape with all pieces attached
 you can use it as is.

However when you cut the outer pieces off all the way around
this is what the finished punched piece looks like.
The above piece is on double sided paper and in my card below
I changed my mind and flipped it to the other side.

Here is my finished card.

Here is the up close view of the star shaped punched section.
Also on this card I used the same punch to do the bottom
border using #911 and no insert.
This is just a small part of why these punches are multi purpose.
Thanks for stopping by .. loved sharing with you today.

Let's Capture our Memories

Let's Capture our Memories Sketch #6 below was used by me to make the card above.
I flipped it to make it work as a card from a layout sketch. The partial circle was the
main base and fun layered strips and accents completed it. I use some white
rubons to add some cool elements.

When the DT do the sketch reveal .. we all take turns making
a wide mix of projects and some different sizes all from the same sketch.
Sure hope you'll stop by and see what we have to share.


SWAT Challenge #2 .. a sketch by Jenessa.
Be sure to check what the DT has to reveal using this sketch.
My page below used the sketch.
It is a fabulous photo of NANA and I used more layers of paper instead of using 2 photos. 

I used My Minds Eye - Love Me Kit.

These close ups show some of the fun accents... banner, doodling, brads and the strip
on the left side is actually the cut away and throw away piece. .. amazing what you can do with these.

This section shows some fun layers of different patterned papers, I added a cluster
with circles, hearts, stones and a floral brad... and more blings.

This corner shows more paper choices and some fun tags and just a touch of bling.
Don't forget to play along with the monthly challenges and a chance to win the sponsored prize.

Simple Stories - Harvest Lane

Simple Stories - Harvest Lane was perfect for this great page and photo.
All pieced and put on kraft paper.  Some fun stamping, SRM stickers, buttons, twine and Just Imagine Crafts / Kreaxions punch #911 with insert A.

Up close you can see some of the fun details.

Kreaxions punch #911 with insert A border in blue pops off the page.

 This is the My Scraps and More Blog Sketch #16 that I used for the page above.
Also for the MSM crop Lisa had a  challenge called "Box of Chocolates"
where you needed some brown paint/ink and a heart on it.
I used this page for that also.
Got to love multi tasking... your result is always so great mixing it up abit.

(i used row 2 across, 3pp, hidden journaling, twine, mini alpha, chipboard),
the Twinery Let's Polka Dot! and for product I used My Minds Eye - Love Me Kit...
and then some misc accents.

For the Twinery Challenge I used twine and tied french knots

So easy to use and so versitile on so many projects.
