Hi there! My name is Valerie Bishop and I'm one of the new members of the Just Imagine/Kreaxions design team! I was so thrilled to be chosen for this team because I just love to use punches – especially border punches! I mainly make layouts, but I do enjoy making cards also. I work at my lss where I also teach classes and I will begin to teach scrapbooking classes in April through the local junior college!! I just love my job!! 🙂 I've been married to my high school sweetheart for almost 28 years and we have 3 very smart and beautiful children! They brings lots of love and fun into my life!

Well enough about me, let me show you what I created using my Kreaxions 910 Vinca 4 in 1 Punch and that fabulously easy circle cutter! Here's my layout:


While I was cutting the border across the bottom of the picture mat, I noticed that there was a zig zag border leftover. Here's a sample of what I'm talking about!

I used my punch alone with none of the inserts to make the border


As I punch there is strip leftover (the right side strip)


I simply used the right side leftover zig zag piece for my sunrays!


 Of course I used my circle cutter for the main body of the sun and the full punch on the picture mat which I backed with a contrasting color to make it really pop! I love that you can use this punch in so many ways to get such different designs!! I hope you try my technique – if you do link it up to our blog! We'd love to see it!! Have a great day creating!!
