Today I’m featuring the Kreaxions Circle Cutter. Did you know that there’s a special piece to cut pictures hidden in your Kreaxions Circle Cutter? It might take a TINY bit of practice but once you’ve tried it you’ll LOVE it! On the back of your Kreaxions Circle Cutter is a long white tab…
Lift up this tab and you’ll see 3 things. Extra blades, pencil inserts (replace your blade with these to DRAW rather than cut your circles!) and a little white round plastic piece.
That little white round disk is to protect your photos from the sharp pointed blade used to balance your circle cutter when you cut! Simply put the disk (raised side towards your picture) on the bottom of your center point as shown below, hold down just a bit more firmly than when you’re cutting your papers (thus the extra practice) and cut as you normally would! Easy peasey!
I used my final page to demonstrate this technique here because it shows up so much better. When you cut your photo however, you’ll want it to be flat on the cutting mat just like you would normally cut your circles.
And here’s my finished page! My DD had emptied the tub but Garrett wouldn’t get out because he wanted to keep playing. LOL! I painted my chipboard circles and covered them with Crystal Lacquer. I also got creative with my title letters. The E was a B, the Y was an X and both of the Os were Qs! Since I had duplicate pictures I took one and cut it into a smaller circle then popped it directly over the other picture. Then I used my pen to roughly outline the popped picture so it would stand out more. And using the Kreaxions Circle Cutter I cut my patterned paper and cardstock to create a large matted circle element for the page.
