Hello! Ginni here again with one of my favorite pics of my Grandson Garrett that I took last month while celebrating his 4th birthday. Sometimes your photo is so cute or beautiful or whatever that you don’t want a lot of stuff cluttering up the page. I’ve found that with just a little bit of punching, you can make a fun mat and borders which enhance your photo(s) and yet it still does the picture justice with a great layout. And instead of expensive embellishments that you have to purchase each time, you can use your scraps and matching papers to create your own for free!
On this page I used Kreaxions Punch #920 with no template and with Template A for my borders. Then I used Template B on the photo mat corners, and finally I used Template C on the photo corners. I created the title with my Cricut using the Jasmine font. The pieces around the photo are cut-away pieces from the borders and corners. I just hate throwing those little pieces away and this is a great way to make use of them!
Here's the punch I used on this page -
As you can see, there are 3 pieces that come with each Kreaxions 4-in-1 punch. Template A is the one on the right and creates a border. Templates B and C are corner punches with Template C being a corner rounder and Template B giving a sharp edge at the top. And every time you punch, there are little pieces that cut away which are fabulous for decorating around the page as I have on this one (and often do).

Hi from Colleen. Today I picked one a layout as my example for you. I used the circle cutter stretched as far out as it would go and cut out a circle and then cut another circle out of the center of that. I used the punch 309 on the inside of the circle with the 6.8 Kreaxions Positioning Parts for Corner Punch. I added twine around the circle for a rustic feel as well as putting burgandy paper behind to make the flowers pop out. I made the button flowers and added a few other flowers for fill in. I used a popsicle stick at the top and distressed it to make it look rustic.
Hello! Ginni here with today's post. Today is a rough day for my family and I. One year ago today my Mom died of cancer. She was 84 years old and someone that everyone loved. She and my Dad had celebrated almost 66 years of wedded bliss and we miss her very much. So in honor of her memory I am sharing this page today.
The pictures are of Mom just after we found out she only had a few months to live. One of my cousins goes to a church where the ladies make quilts for people who are sick. They tie knots in the design and each knot is a prayer for the person who’s receiving the quilt. Mom didn’t know it was coming and was so surprised when it arrived! It even had her favorite color – purple – in it! (No one knew that was her fav color! It just happened!) She loved it so much that she asked to be buried with the quilt. She had it on her bed every day until she died and now it’s covering her in the grave.

Hi its Chris here sharing this superfun layout of me (that's right I actually have a picture of me on a layout!) and my son. For this layout, I used this week's Sketch from Nuts about Sketches! The sketch called for lots of circles which were a breeze to cut out with the kreaxions Circle Cutter! I thought the half circle at the top of the layout looked a little plain, so I "dressed" it up a bit but using the circle templates and the 903 punch. I then added the doily behind the flower using the star template and the 903 punch with the "A" inserts.
I love to make collages by putting together an image and pretty things that I make or find in my craft room. My pink lady is made from two character constructions stamps. I inked her shirt and cage skirt and added a bird and flowers from my stash. To really make this page pretty, I finished it with Kreaxions punches! I used punch #905 and the star template to make the pink doily that is behind her head. Then I used punch #923 with no inserts to make the border. I also cut the word dream and the cloud shape from the dream cloud style die. I'm very pleased with my collage and hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
Hello, Kreaxion Fanatics! Charity here, and I've got a sweet treat for you today. I have this thing about buying jams and jellies in shaped jars with plans for up-cycling.
Welcome to SOMEDAY!!!
To accentuate the lovely curves and corners of these glass jars I added fancy black sashes with striped inserts. They were a snap to make with my Kreaxions punches and positioning parts. I've included the directions below.

Directions: Sash #1 Punch the long sides of black cardstock with Punch # 907, carefully lining up the punch with the center of the design on the opposite side. Adhere striped paper down the center of the black cardstock. Wrap sash around jar, overlap ends, and adhere securely.
Sash #2 Punch one of the long sides of the black cardstock with Punch #920. Use 8cm inner circle Positioning Parts to punch the opposite side of the black cardstock, carefully lining up the punch. Adhere striped paper and secure around jar.
Punch one of the long side of the black cardstock with Punch #904. Use Insert A to punch the opposite side of the black cardstock, carefully lining up the punch. Adhere striped paper and secure around jar.
Have fun collecting Jam Jars!!! Check my blogScrappin' Chaos for a list of supplies.
This is Colleen and today I am going to share a little Halloween bag with you. I started with a paper bag and then cut it in half. I used the 903 punch for the border around the top of the bag. I used the 309 punch and circle cutter to make the flowers on the front of the bag. I used the leaves that were on the 309 punch and glued them together to make the black flowers and then I cut up on the circles to make them look a little more leafy. Some black netting was added along with a lavender bow with of course a bat and spider to add to the Halloween theme. Fill this with candy and give it to someone special.
I used my Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch # 921 and my Cricut to create this fall banner. Punching the edges of the medallions added amazing detail to this project. For the particulars on how to make this banner visit my blog http://thegovsplace.blogspot.com/
