i-rock Templates: Learn to Make Your Own

Everyone loves our i-rock templates, we know because we keep selling through them and having to bring in more. Stores are telling us these are among the best selling item in their stores. Everyone loves a something they can use over and over again and have cute designs. Imaginisce actually has three different designs currently. We are working on next designs for next year. Be sure to keep reading to see how you can create your own or win one!! 
Here's what the end result of the template design looks like when you remove it and  the gems are left behind...beautiful don't you think?


The following pillow and card designs used the Swirl Templates to create the beautiful flourish pattern on them. The great thing about our templates is they're made from a HEAT RESISTANT material so that you can touch it with your i-rock tool and not melt the material.

Another Tip: In stead of leaving the template in place and dropping each stone in and setting it inside the holes of the template, you can simply mark where the holes were with a pencil and go back and add the stones of your choice.

We've had tons of requests for more templates and we're working on some amazing designs hopefully to release for next year. But in the meantime, we've got a couple great ideas from our cute friend over at PinkCricut. She created two videos showing you how to create your own templates. 

The first video shows you how to use your Crop-A-Dile hole punch to create your template. Here's a template design we worked up for you so you could try this technique out yourself. Click on the image to make it larger and open in new window and right click on it to save it to your computer to print (you can resize it too). Enjoy!!


 You could also use one of my favorite tools to for this same technique. Some call it a Japanese Screw Punch and others call it an Anywhere Hole Punch. Simply print out your design and punch holes along the lines to create your gem pattern. 


The second video shows those of you that have a Gypsy and Cricut how to easily create your own template from designs you have stores on your Gypsy. I've tried this and loved how amazing the designs turned out when I was finished.

FREE STUFF: 
Let us know which of the PinkCricut videos you think you'll try and we'll giveaway one of our Template Kits and a new i-rock tool. Be sure to leave Sarah a comment so she knows you stopped by to check out her videos!! We'll announce all winners from previous weeks each Monday.

Back to School with Liz

Hi everyone! As many of your know, my "real" job is as an educator and this month has been my department's Back to School month, which consists of helping teachers in our district prepare for the return of our students. Since I have been consumed with work, which always encroaches a bit on my hobby (LOL), I thought it would be appropriate to share little desk caddy created with the delicious Apple Cider Collection. Below are just a few directions on what I used to create this special gift for a child's teacher.

First of all, I started with one of these... 
Purchased at Hobby Lobby

Then I painted it with this...
Burnt Sienna Acrylic Paint
Next I covered it with these...

Fall In Love 12x12 Paper
Nature Trails Ribbon
I also used one of these:
Fiskars Scallop Border Punch
Then I cut this...


Using this...
Cricut Country Life Cartridge
With this...
Cricut Expressions Machine
And ended up with this...


Ready for a Giveaway???
Leave a comment and be eligible to win one of these...
Cricut Simply Charmed Cartridge

Thank you so much for stopping by - Liz

Impressed with Embossing and the Cuttlebug (with giveaway)!

Provo Craft originally introduced the Cuttlebug as a die-cut machine for the home crafter. It's compact, does not require electricity, and folds up for easy storage, which has made it popular with scrapbookers that don't want the bulk or expense of large digital machines. It's also very easy to use. Here's a couple samples of what Melinda created with the Happy Birthday Cuttlebug Embossing folder (shown below) and the B-Day Bash Collection.

Cuttlebug embossing folders are used to press a three dimensional image into cardstock, craft foam, mesh, chipboard, and other scrapbook media. Six inches in the maximum width of the paper that can be accommodated, but there is no limit to the length.

The folders come in several different styles. The basic folders are 5-inch by 7-inch, and have an overall pattern. These folders are perfect for embossing photos mats and cards.

For those of you that don't own a Cuttlebug machine, you can still use the embossing folders. According to Love to Know: Scrapbooking they claim you just need a spray bottle and rolling pin. I haven't tried this myself, but here's how they did it:

The only equipment needed is a spray bottle, some tape, and a rolling pin. It is not possible to get as much pressure with a rolling pin as the Cuttlebug can apply. With light weight paper, this will not be an issue, but for cardstock or other heavy weight materials, embossing will be easier if the paper is sprayed lightly with water. Dampening the paper will make it more pliable and easier to emboss. Place the paper in the embossing folder, and tape the folder closed. Lay the embossing folder on a firm surface like a table or counter, and roll over it with the rolling pin, as though you were rolling out a pie crust. You will need to experiment to learn how much pressure to apply to get the desired result.

Wanna WIN a CUTTLEBUG MACHINE and some EMBOSSING FOLDERS?? We would love to see what you've embossed? Simple leave a comment with a link back to a sample you've created using an embossing folder. But, if you don't have anything because you don't own any embossing folders, simply give us a link to a project you found online using this embossing method. We'll select a winner by Thursday morning!!

Sewing, Sketches, and Scooter's Vacation!

Hey all!  Kim here and I am thrilled to be your blog hostess today!  I'm even more excited to share with you three of my favorite things in the scrapbooking world:  sewing, sketches and Scooter's Vacation!  So let's get right to it!

First up - sewing!  Stitching on my layouts has become a must for me.  I just love the finishing touch it gives to my layouts and cards and it's sew easy (pun intended)!  Okay, I'll admit, it wasn't always so easy!  So let me share with you a few things I learned along the way and hopefully you can speed up your learning curve!

*Use a basic machine with basic stitches!  In fact, I went out and purchased a small, basic machine for under $75.00 just to use for my scrapbooking.  It's all you will need.  Keep it handy and threaded with a basic color and you will find yourself using it all the time!

*Apply a small amount of adhesive to hold your papers in place while stitching.  Avoid stitching directly through adhesive tabs as this will gum up your needle and your thread will continually break.  If you do get glue on your needle, you can clean it with Un-do or rubbing alcohol. 

*Use a medium to heavy weight needle for most paper stitching.  The exception would be if you were sewing through light ribbon or vellum.  In this case, a light weight needle will suffice.  Remember to keep your stitches long - short stitches too close together will act like a perforation and your paper will tear. 

*After stitching, turn your project over.  Grab hold of the bobbin (bottom) thread and give it a light tug.  The top thread will come through a bit and make a loop.  Grab this with a sharp point and pull it all the way through to the back.  Use tape to secure both threads to back of project and cut off remaining.



*Play with a variety of stitches!  I combine straight and zig zag stitches on almost all my layouts.  Sometimes I  leave the ends loose on the front, sometimes I go around 2 or 3 times, sometimes I use a pattern and sometimes it's random.  There is no right or wrong way!




Next up is my sketch!  I love to work from a sketch!  They make great starting points for photo placement and help me to get my mojo flowin'!  I love to rotate them, add photos, delete photos - you can make the design all your own! Some of my favorite sites for skeches are My Sketch World, Page Maps, and Pencil Lines.  Here is own I created for you to play with:

And last but not least is Scooter's Vacation!  This is one of my all time favorite lines by Imaginisce.  It's such a versatile travel line full of fabulous 2-sided papers and embellishments!  You can find it all at Two Peas in a Bucket and at your local Michael's Craft Store



Do you see all that fun dimension?  I was playing with my Cuttlebug machine and embossing folders!  I love to use them to add dimension, texture and character to my designs!  The large dot one is called Seeing Spots and it's my current favorite!  I also used Diamond Plate, Script Texture, Tiny Bubbles, Polka Dots and the Measure by Measure borders. 

Did you make it all the way down here to the end?  If you did -- good for you because this is where the giveaway information is!  Giveaway?    Imaginisce is amazing when it comes to fun giveaways!  So, leave a message here by August 24th and you could win a prize package full of Scooter's Vacation Goodies! 

Do you want another giveaway?  Of course, you do!  If you hop on over to my blog today, you will see that I'm giving away a fabulous Cuttlebug embossing folder by Provocraft!  It's called Dominos!

Have a glorious day - Happy Scrappin'!

The Patient Workings of an Artist in Australia: Melinda Spinks

The very patient Melinda Spinks created this beautiful "Love" layout form the new Apple Cider Collection. I say patent because she cuts the little leaves and apples from the pattern papers, she stitches the little blue bird's trail, quills the cloud and then went hunting for twigs to create her darling boarder. For more close-up photos of this beautiful layout, visit Melinda's blog post. Isn't Melinda great!!

Cute Melinda sent me this sketch to share for those of you that might want to create a layout based on Melinda's original layout. I love collecting sketches!

We were also very excited when we learned the Kristina at 2Peas featured the Apple Cider Collection in her weekly product picks. In fact, she even mentioned Melinda's layout above.  If you want to see the product in action...well sort of in real life, then you'll love this video.

i-rock Storage Ideas (and giveaway)!

I've been asked a ton how I store all my i-rock accessories and tool. So I thought I'd show off how I store my i-rock products and give you a few more ideas I picked up while doing a little school supply shopping.


Hard Pink Case
The case in the lower left corner (see group shot above) was a great find, but needed to be just a bit bigger to fit more i-rock accessories. I also thought cutting a name out or design with my cricut and vinyl would have totally rocked this case. The tool and glam rocks fit in here real nice, but the compacts are a bit too large. If you like the idea of a clear case I would for sure pick up a larger version of this case. 


Round Pencil Case
I thought this was too plain for my liking, so I attached a flower pin that Julia Sandvoss made for me to the zipper. This is a cute case, but the compacts don't fit in here real well, but everything else, especially the i-rock tools fits in here nicely.

Hawaiian Zipper Case
Loved that this case had a side for pencils and the Glam Rocks fit in real nice in their place. This was the higher priced of all the options, but isn't it great!  


My Personal i-rock Storage
I bought one of these "clearly organized bags" from a friend years ago and actually own them in a ton of sizes. The new versions of these have handles and are very reasonably priced. These are my favorite way to transport a lot of my scrapbook tools, supplies, etc when I go to crops. It makes my scrapbook tote a lot more organized and easy to manage. Anyway, I thought the bag was too plain so I added a couple flowers to the front of it and filled it with EVERYTHING from the i-rock tool and accessories (and extra batteries) in my bag.  

We love Giveaways, especially those that ROCK!!!
Yes, we have three extra cases that need a home and we can't send them empty either. So enter to win one of our three i-rock tool + case sets. Tell us which of the cases you'd like best OR share some of your own storage ideas for the i-rock tool. We'll pick a winner by Thursday, 8/19.

Second Verse Same as the First...

Hey there! This is Lisa Day hijacking the blog today! (I have some goodies to giveaway so I'm sure you won't mind!)

When it comes to scrapbooking Birthdays for my kids it feels very much like "second verse same as the first"! (ha, now try getting that out of your head...it's impossible!) My son and daughter's birthdays are only 1 day apart so they end up celebrating and doing everything together. I have decided that since they share a cake, the party, the guest, and even open presents together that I can make the layouts I do for their birthdays follow the same pattern. I can scrap the same topic and even use the same design. It’s actually nice in that respect so I don’t have to recreate the wheel for each layout and I can just get it done!


The
Birthday Bash line made this so easy this year. I love the versatile colors and patterns. Using the same design for each layout – just reversed – I was able to create two quick layouts that still feel very different. The layout I did for my son feels very boyish and the layout for my daughter feels very girlish. It’s fun to make the same layout but still make them unique to fit each child. To me this is an easy way to approach scrapbooking events!

Do you have an approach you take for scrapbooking events? I’d love to hear your take on scrapbooking events. Share your thoughts here and you’ll be entered to win some Birthday Bash goodies
.
Winner will be announced on Monday.

Speaking of winning goodies I have even more to share on my personal blog. Stop over to my blog for an extra chance to win some more Birthday Bash products!

Here’s a look at the two layouts I made, plus a cute little banner I made to hang from their bedroom door on their actual birthday!

These layouts have the same design and even product, but they still feel unique!

I added some pop to the "Happy Birthday" circles on the paper by punching out matching circles and adding some foam squares behind them. I covered a large i-top brad with some fabric and a rub-on to add the birthday year to each layout!

I love how the curve of the celebrate banner and the scallops helps add a soft girly feel to this layout!

I did the same thing on this page and cut out the "celebrate" from another piece of paper and added it to the top with some foam squares. I love the pop it adds!

I can not even tell you how much I love these candles!! I "carefully" burnt the end of each one to give it a more real candle look. I love it!

Okay, don't forget to leave a comment here and hop over to my blog for chances to win 2 great giveaways! Happy Friday!

Boys Caught Scrapbooking!!

Sorry we've been missing in action here on the Imaginisce blog this week...we've been busy cooking up some fun ideas, inspiration and of course contest and giveaways. BUT we wanted to share, that yes, BOYS DO SCRAPBOOK
These two handsome young men have been working as our jr. interns around the office this past year. They just graduated from high school and are headed off to college. But among the many projects Hunter and Ben did for us this summer, one caught our eye. They had to help create some duplicated layouts for a our retailers. Their circle cutting skills were superb and they learned to use the Glue Glider adhesive guns like a pro!! OH and watch out...they are pros now at inking projects.
Thanks Hunter and Ben, we'll miss you guys! Best of luck at school and keep on SCRAPPIN!

iSpy: Vacation, B-Day, Fabric Flowers & Last Week's winners!!


Over the weekend we noticed some projects with one of our popular vacation collection, Scooter's Vacation showing up around the web. We found this darling album idea featured on 2Peas and then followed the link back to one of our favorite magazine blogs, Scrapbook and Cards Today

The album was designed by Aly Dosdall. To see more of Aly's work, be sure to visit her blog.

I also have to admit that I'm a blog-stalker for sure. And one of the blogs I love checking out on a regular basis is Jennifer Gallacher's blog. She's an amazing designer that I've admired her style and talent for many years now. I hope she doesn't mind having me feature her layout her, but it was too cute not to share.


Another cute project featuring the i-top tool and some spring fabric from Julia Sandvoss. Her post has a fun step-by-step tutorial on it for all of you! And she loved her i-top tool for this project so much that she brought us some of her cute flowers to CHA for some of us working in the booth...too cute, thanks Julia.


Now for the winners from our blog last week....

Friday Renata from out Design Team posted a great B-Day Bash Calendar Idea. So we hosted a giveaway for B-Day Bash Products. The lucky winner is: ALINE SALMON

Then earlier last week we hosted a great big i-rock giveaway and many of you hoping to win participated in the fun. WE loved reading through all your comments about what you would bling out if you had an i-rock. Thanks to random.org we were able to select a winner and her response still has us giggling! The winner is: AVA
If you are one of the winners please emails us at contact(dot)imaginisce(at)gmail(dot)com. Be sure to put in the subject line which giveaway you won and send us your mailing address. Thanks!!

Guest Blog Post: Renata from Brazil

Hello!

It´s Renata Moni from Brazil and I'm delighted to be here and blogging with you today.

My theme for today is BIRTHDAY! And my project uses the new B-Day Bash Collection!!

I love to celebrate birthdays, but I must confess I'm terrible at remembering them.

So, I decided to share with you what I have made to help me not forget my friends' birthdays anymore! LOL

It's a birthday calendar!





I will show you how I created mine with this simple tutorial!

Materials to do this birthday calendar :
1 Chipboard sheet 9”x 9”
2 cardstock papers 12"x 12"
Patterned papers ( new B-day Bash Collection by Imaginisce)
rub-ons, alpha stickers, i-rock blings, foam tape, glue and embellishments you desire.

Instructions
Use the thickest chipboard you have for firm strong board.


Cover both sides of your chipboard with cardstock.
Tip 1- You can use a piece of fine-grade sandpaper or nail file to sand the edges of the paper flush with the edges of the chipboard.
Tip 2- Painting your chipboard is a great alternative to covering it too.

Now that the front face of the board is ready:

Adhere the patterned papers to the chipboard sheet and embellish however you wish.

Create a cute background to put under the calendar. I even added some i-rock blink to my balloons.

Print on white paper a perpetual calendar with the days of the month and trim them to size (mine is 7 ½ " high x 3 ½" width) and round corners.

Use a clothes pin to hold the papers of your calendar.

Decorate the months of you calendar! It´s going to be fun and beautiful.

You can use stickers, rub-on , blings, alpha stickers...

And your calendar is ready!!!

I Hope you like it!

Have a great weekend you all!

We are so excited for the release of the new Apple Cider Collection.

The following project was created by the awesome Liz Qualman. She used new Country Life Cricut Cartridge (due out in August) to create the darling banner across her layout and we couldn't wait to show this project off to all of you.

Be sure to check out her blog to see more close-ups of this project.

 
We have received such great feedback on the Apple Cider Collection from all our fans. I know you'll be inspired to create amazing things with this fun collection and not just for fall...the colors are perfect for home, family...really any season. Here's some more great inspiration from our Design Team.
