If you're anything like me you buy all your valentine scrapping goodies after the holiday when everything is suddenly on sale. I always find myself making a few holiday cards after the holiday because I can't wait a year to use my new goodies. Here is a card with Punch 905. I love to add little touches of glitter to the neagtive space in punches to draw the eye. Consider picking up your own Punch 905 so that your ready for next year but also just for some love-y card all year long. Continue reading

Kreaxions Punches are always what I turn to when I need a little something to finish my card. I love Punch 311 because it a generic but cute design plus it works perfect with a bit of bling. When you're making a border with the Kreaxions punches always remember to check out the negative created whiel punching because I often hold on to those for a future project. Continue reading

Even after the holidays I find myself reaching for Punch 312. The snowy season has barely started where I live so why ignore the punch until next Christmas. On this card I punched the corners of a small square piece of paper to create panel for mounting my stamped images on. Combining the punched and stamped snowflakes adds extra interest and as I often do I highlighted the images with a touch of bling. I admit the colors are a little Christmas-y but I know a few people who would enjoy a winter pick me up hello like this. Continue reading

If you're anything like me you always remember at the last minute that you should have picked up just one more gift. This happened to me again this year so I had to whip up a quick card to go with the last minute gift. Luckily my Kreaxions Punch 312 allows me to make quick cards that look like they took longer than the ten minutes that they really do. I simply punched the snowflakes along the bottom and then mounted it onto white paper adding a bit of bling for an extra touch. If you wind up with a... Continue reading

I hope your holiday preparations are going smoothly. I have some shopping done but not much else. I won't be getting my tree until next weekend but one of the most fun parts of the season is pretty much complete. Making Christmas cards! I used 312 to create two different borders for the card above. The top border is technically the "trash" left over when you punch the bottom border, but why let such a pretty detail go to waste. I even added the negative from the border as a snowflake embellishment on the picture card. I love that elements... Continue reading

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! For everyone who went black friday shopping I hope you got what you wanted. For my card today I used Punch 311 to make a simple Thanksgiving card. I decided to go with a bit of an unconventional color scheme but I love the way Punch 311 goes with the Stella Rose collections.One way I like to draw attention to the beautiful patterns of the punches is to add gems or glitter.

Today I wanted to share a non-christmas/holiday card using Punch 312. I love the punch and I immeadiately think of great ways to enhance Christmas cards with it, but I thought it would be fun to use it for another kind of card. This simple thank you could be used for a Christmas gift, but also for anytime during the snowy season or well really anytime. So order Punch 312 to jazz up your Christmas card but don't think you'll have to abandon it once the season is through. Continue reading

I've been in love with this Authentique paper and my new Punch 309 since I saw them. So I thought why not use them together. To highlight the punch I backed the paper with solid cardstock. I love how the Kreaxions punches create interesting corners instead of simple rounding. It adds great detail to an otherwise simple card or layout. Continue reading

It may seem a little early for Halloween but it's probably my favorite holiday. So here a month in advance I'm working on a fun Halloween card. The brand new Punch 310 is perfect for many of the more elegant Halloween lines because of its flourish design. As I often do I tried to keep it simple. Between the cute witch and the elegant punches, there's no need to overaccessorize. Continue reading

I used to dread and avoid any card sketch that used circles. Before the Kreaxions Circle Cutter, I always cut circles by hand because I had never found a circle cutter I liked. However when I saw this week's CPS sketch I was not intimidated at all. My circle cutter made it super simple and the Crown Punch 611 was a perfect embellishment. I love how the standalone punches can make a quick accent that coordinates with the paper line you're using. Continue reading

The circle cutter has so many great everyday uses but if you're looking for a special project made for the circle cutter may I suggest a bullseye effect. Simple layer circles together with alternating patterns. Then put a bit of bling or a brad in the center to set it off. Have a happy Friday everyone! Continue reading

What we all love about Kreaxions punches is that they are 4-in-1 punches. This means that each punch will help you create two different corner punch designs and two different border punch designs. Today I’m featuring this dual functionality on my LO. You can see that I used both of the borders that are created by Punch 921. In my mind it’s a way to cause a little variation and interest to a LO without making it too busy. Two different border punches would have created such a cohesive look but the two border choices of the Kreaxions punch allows... Continue reading

With so many great Kreaxions punches to choose from it may be hard to decide which one to add to your collection next. While I love my wide collection of punches I think that some punches lend themselves to particular styles really easily. For instance the punch I used on today’s project (Punch 916) is perfect for vintage and shabby chic styles. Punch 306 is perfect for fun and cute styles and Punch 907 is perfect for people who have a clean and simple style. Of course there are punches like Punch 604 which work for every style but matching... Continue reading

Like many of you cardmakers out there I love to send handmade cards. Unfortunately it can be quite expensive to mail them and cards with any dimension often mean a special trip to the post office to make sure you have the right postage and if you mail in a square envelope it will cost you extra as well. I don’t say this to discourage you, but instead because I think Kreaxions punches offer opportunities for us cardmakers to add great detail while still keeping cards easy and cheap to mail. On my card I’ve used Punch 916, Punch 604,... Continue reading

Hello everyone!When I started this card I had just planned to use the star template and Punch 305 but unsurprisingly when you have all the lovely Kreaxions products sitting out in front of you it’s hard to use only a few. I wound up layering the punched star template on a circle cut with the circle cutter and then on the base of the card I punched the corners with Punch 916 and punched a butterfly 604 for an accent. I love that their products are designed to work so easily together. I encourage you to play along with our... Continue reading

Happy Friday everyone! I love my 4 in 1 punches, but was excited to try the butterfly Punch 604 this month. Of course the butterfly punch provides the same heavy duty quality of the other Kreaxions punches, easily punching out the delicate details. I decided to create a simple card to showcase how fab the punched image is. I have a feeling this butterfly will be used time and again and I'm already brainstorming how I can create patterned paper with it like Wendy suggested. There's still time to join in on our June challenge so check out this month's... Continue reading

Bev provided us with an awesome sketch for the June challenge. Even though the sketch was meant for a LO I adapted for my card. I created this card using Punches 913 and 907 along with my circle cutter. I adore the way 907 adds an ever so subtle touch to the corners of panels. I used the border feature of 913 to create the simple little tabs from the sketch. Continue reading

The idea of a mom theme with butterflies is perfect for me because my mom loves butterflies. So this LO came together really easily. I used Punch 907 to create a great detail along the bottom. I love the unique borders created by these punches that seem to be at first for corners. At Kreaxions we have a challenge perfect to get you motivated to scrap those mother’s day photos. We’ve provided a sketch which you can find here. Continue reading

At Kreaxions this month we have a fun sketch challenge with a card and a LO sketch. You have until the end of the month to share your take on the sketch with us. Check out more details here. I took on the card sketch challenge using the Butterfly Die, Punch 306, and Punch 907. I love that I can create so many different accents with these bunches. They aren't simply border punches or corner punches. Continue reading

Happy Friday! As April is quickly coming to an end I hope you've gotten a chance to play along in a few of our challenges. I recently got to play around with the circle templates to create the window effect which is another big way that Kreaxions punches stand out to me. No where if my collection of die cuts can any device create this unique window element. I think this element is especially great for stampers because it really adds a lot of interest yet can become a rather neutral background that shows off the stamps. On my card... Continue reading

I love working with products that are meant to be worked with together. Some may say its less creative but for me this hobby is about having fun with great product and if I don't win any 'most unqiue' contests I'm ok. The Kreaxions products are all designed to work together and that makes creating a fun card element so easy to do. I simply cut two circles of the same size with the cutter. I use the star template and Punch 913 to create the fun bold red accent and it will layer onto the other one seamlessly. No... Continue reading

Using lots of circles on a layout can make for a really fun playful look. Unlike with most punches the Kreaxions Circle Cutter allows you to cut a variety of sizes with just one compact easy to store tool. I used my circle cutter for the pictures as well. Circles are especially fun with water layouts because they remind you of bubbles. So whip out some photos from the pool last summer or maybe those embarrassing tub photos that are oh so cute to parents and play with circles on your layout! Continue reading

Hello everyone! I’m sure when using your Kreaxions punches you find yourself with lots of tiny little scraps many in great shapes like flowers, hearts, or butterflies. Using punch 913 I had lots of little flowers left over when punching borders and corners and want to share so ideas on how to use these scraps. On my first card I wanted to get creative. I used my star template to cut out a window for a shaker card. I placed some clear plastic under my window cut out. Tip: Old packaging works great. Then I placed a bunch of “scraps”...

Hello everyone! My name is Jess and I’m so excited to be a member of the Just Imagine Design Team. I can’t wait to get to know all the talented users of this great project and be inspired by their creations! I want to share a little about myself and a fun project. First up a bit about the project because who doesn’t love eye candy. I am lucky enough to own the circle cutter, Punch 913 and the star template and was determined to use them all right away. I began by tracing and cutting out the star template.... Continue reading
