I’m beyond thrilled to be here today as a Guest Designer! 

I little about me:

My name is Joan Borgelt and I’m an education specialist by day and a passionate scrapbooker by night.  I am a wife to Randy (33 years), mother to 3 grown children and a grandmother to 8.5 grandchildren. 

I have been scrapbooking and paper crafting for about 15 years.  My love for nostalgia, vintage finds and patterned paper (I’m an official paper hoarder) have kept me artistically intrigued.

I have a variety of styles and skills and will try any technique at least once.

Hip/Modern – I like trying new techniques and my color choices are bold and assorted.  Romantic – Distressing and inking are my favorite techniques. I love layering paper and if I can find a way to use ribbon and flowers on a boy layout I will.  Shabby-Chic – I love all things vintage, well worn and peeling. Experimenting with mixing colors, patterns and textures is very forgiving. I have learned that a mistake can be taken as part of the look I was going for.

I created two Halloween cards and a layout of my daughter.  I used the Kreaxions Punch 4 in 1 #312 Snowflake, Kreaxions Circle Cutter, Kreaxions Positioning System and the Kreaxions Stencils. 

 I’ve been scrapping and paper crafting for over a decade and have tired numerous circle cutters.  Up to this point I have never had one that worked and/or that I liked.  I’ll just say where has the Kreaxions Circle Cutter been all my life!  This tool is so easy to use and you get perfect results every time. 

Expecting Gracelynn



I wanted to do something special for this layout “Expecting Gracelynn”.  It’s for our daughter who is expecting their 6th child and their first girl.  I used the Kreaxious B circle template along with the positioning system and the #312 4 in 1 punch to create the punched circle.  I also added some extra detail to the corners by using the #312 punch with the C insert.  I love the results!

For the “Spooky Card” I had wanted to try making these flowers out of newspaper for months and never did because … who has time to cut out all those circles.  Using the Kreaxions Circle Cutter I found I could cut through several layers of newspaper at once, what a timesaver!  Using the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #312 with no insert I created the perfect border to finish off the card.

For the “Boo” card I used the Kreaxious Circle Cutter to cut a perfect circle which I distressed and then mounted my title on. Using the Kreazions #312, 4 in 1 punch I made a border and then embellished it with pearls.

I am thrilled to be here today to share with you.. Joan GDT
