I "HEART" Autumn!

Autumn is my absolute favorite time of year, and any crafting time I can get playing with autumn collections or projects only adds to the wonderful!!  I've created this card for Just Imagine Crafts using their punch Kreaxions #304 and their amazing circle cutter!

I've created the top border using:  Punch #304 with the straight edge "A" insert

The bottom border was created using:  Punch #304 with no insert

The center circle was created by using the Kreaxions circle cutter (best circle cutter I've ever used!) and the same punch using the "C" insert and just punching at even intervals around the circle.

Here's a closer look at the different punched sections before I completed the also shows the pretty Kreaxions glitter paper I used to make the punched areas pop for the borders:

Batty Punch Fun

Ok, I'm completely obsessed with this Kreations #304 punch!  It's true!  Today I'm getting my fall craft on with this punch from Just Imagine Crafts, and when you add some Halloween goes from a pretty and frilly border punch to a spooktacular batty look:

I punched one row of the #304 punch on a 4" strip of black cardstock without any guards/guides and then trimmed the strip in half to get the bat look for the top of my easel card, and the spooky almost spider like border across the bottom.  Then I fussy cut around one of the "bats" I punched on a separate piece of paper, backed it in orange, and it became the little bat held on by the clothespin: 

Can I say again how much I love this punch and all the different looks you can get from it?!!
