Kreaxion Challenges

Want a chance to win either a Kreaxions Circle Cutter or Kreaxion punch? I love that circle cutter! It has made cutting circles SO much easier! All you have to do is enter any of the challenges at the Just Imagine Kreaxions blog this month to be in the running. My challenge for everyone is to use a punch to create an embellishment. Be sure to scroll down for a tutorial on how to create your own brads with your punches. You could create flowers with heart punches. Or how about making a shaker box embellishment with your punches. 

Be sure to check out the Kreaxions blog for all the details on entering! And don't forget to link your projects for this challenge into Mr Linky over on this post. Can't wait to see what you create! 

I used the scrap parts of the punch #905 to make my brads for my journaling. you can also see how I used the punch along the bottom border of the layout. 

And here is a closeup of the brads. Super simple! Did you know that you can create your own colored brads from regular brass office fasteners, embossing powder and a heat tool? You don't even have to coat them with versamark. If you heat the brads first and dip them in the embossing powder the powder will stick to the hot brads. Then all you have to do is reheat them to melt down the powder. cool, huh?!
