It's Almost Spring!

Here in IL we've had a tease this past week....60-70 degree temps that have us all thinking Spring!  But today....cold, rainy/sleet, gray....I'm just thankful it's not snow!  But after a bout with the flu these past two weeks....I'm ready to turn the corner and think sunny I'm sharing a pretty spring card created using Just Imagine Kreaxions punch #901, and the new Spring Things collection from Doodlebug!

The sweet little doily with the butterflies and flowers goes perfectly with the Spring Things collection, and is super easy with these fun punches!  You use Just Imagine's star stencil octagon template:

....trace on paper (I used plain white cardstock) then just punch each "point" using the "A" guide you get with your punch.  There are several wonderful videos out there that show just how easy this is!

I layered the doily with some of the pretty glitter paper available from Just Imagine Crafts, and then popped a cute sentiment fussy cut from some of the Spring Things paper 6x6 pad in the center of the doily with some foam tape.  A few enamel dots, and it's a simple, but pretty springtime card.

Thanks for stoppin' by today!  If you get a chance, check out all the inspiration over at the Just Imagine Crafts blog.  You can find my post over there today!  While you're there check out the specials (the butterfly punch I used for one!) and the great projects from the entire team!

Sweet Nothings

Today I've got a pretty Valentine to share....and it uses the new Sweet Nothings collection from Fancy Pants, and a delicate pretty Valentine perfect punch from Just Imagine Kreaxions.....punch #916.

The border strips are made with the punch, and so are the little tag sides.  I created them by punching the border and cutting pieces out like so:

The stamps and papers are from the Fancy Pants Sweet Nothings collection and the ink is Memento and the hearts are colored in with Copic markers.

This punch and several others are on sale.....and more inspiration too over at the Just Imagine Crafts blog.... check it out HERE.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
