My Scraps and More for 12 days of xmas .. day 7 was strips.
Scrapbook Challenges for a Then and Now layout using same photo.
Just Imagine Crafts with Kreaxions Punches.
With all this in mind I started with 7 strips. I then Kreaxions Punched #309 with insert A staggering them and alternating on opposite sides.. then matted the strips.
I totally finished the background with strips before I started the layout. I grabbed the cute photo and with the busy background decided the red circle would frame and highlight the picture perfectly using the Kreaxions Circle Cutter of course.
To coordinate some more red into the layout I cut some journal strips, the cricut title and part of the cricut cut butterflies. I also pulled the bright red brads.
From there I grabbed some of the adorable felties flowers and accents to cluster with the butterflies for the perfect combo.
This close up photo shows the matted punched strips, the bright brads, the circle frame…….
This corner shows the cricut cut title, small cluster…
This corner shows the journal strips, the frame and the cute cluster of flowers and butterfly.
The base punched background matted is fabulous. You could have so many options with punches to make a base before you start a layout. Keep this in mind when working on a new project.
Hope you have a great day… Bev DT
