Wanna share some good news!

Do you remember this project? It was one that I created for the Core'dinations booth for Winter CHA as a feature to the new Tim Holtz cardstock colors. 
 Well, there is a little tutorial on the Core'dinations blog to give you the pattern and directions for creating a little birdhouse like this. It was soooooo easy and fast, be sure to check out that post.
 Next, my second piece of exciting news is that I am part of the new Design Team at Just Imagine/Kreaxions.  I just had to put together a card using some of my new supplies as I shared this news. 
 I have never been much of a fan of circle cutters but wow, let me tell you, as I first went to use the Kreaxions circle cutter, I knew this was something different. It is so easy to use. It is very small and actually doesn't look like a whole lot but it works so smoothly. I did watch the little video on the Just Imagine crafts blog to see their tips on the best way to use it.
(hint) for my large flower accent, I hand drew a flower on the back of a piece of cardstock and then cut that out)
And, here is an example of one of their 4-in-1 punches. Again, I did watch their video in order to get a better idea of the variety of ways that these punches can be used.  I love that each one of the 4-in-1 punches can be used in more then one way for different looks. This is the Fountain punch.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
