{it's a wrap}

It is my third Sunday on the Just Imagine blog using their awesome Kreaxions punches!  Let me say (for the third Sunday in a row!) how versatile these punches are and how many looks you can get from just one punch! 
 Today I have made a border wrap for a magnetic paper pad my son will give to one of the support staff at his school.  I went with the pad colors; red, grey and white to make the border.  I used the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #914.  I used it without an insert on both the red and grey paper, but used different parts.  I cut a strip of red paper 3" wide and ran the punch up both sides- it is so easy to line this punch up for identical sides! I then cut some borders out of the grey paper, but used the cut away for the triangle shaped trim.  I layered it all with a strip of white to make the holly pop and wrapped it around the paper pad.
My second project is a simple ornament.  I used the Just Imagine circle cutter and the 4 in 1 punch again.  The circle cutter easily handles the heavy card stock and is oh so easy to use! 
I used the punch without an insert and trimmed away those cute scalloped pieces and adhered them to the back of the grey circle. I cut a second grey circle to finish off the back, added an SRM sticker sentiment to a paper doily and adhered it to the circle and glued the whole thing onto a sparkly plastic snowflake.
My heart is heavy over what has happened in Connecticut.  The Christmas season is for celebration, joy and peace, not sorrow of this magnitude.  I pray for the families of this tragedy - hoping they can eventually find peace in their hearts.

If you want to be happy, be.
