60 Minute Makeover

We thought that our Design Team did such an amazing job last time that we decided to challenge them again with the 60 minute madness challenge! They were asked to create a project in 1 hour.

Surprise, surprise!! they've done it again!

We want to share those projects with you to encourage you and let you know that you too can create layouts and a variety of projects in an hours time.

Tracey Taylor
Gift Bag

Tracey has a few words to share with us about her project:
"Kraft envelopes make a great backdrop for a fall inspired gift bag. Embossing the envelope also gives it some really great texture, a natural pairing for a fall colour palette. The Happy Harvest die cuts are the perfect match to create a cute fall scene. All you need to finish is attach the envelope to the gift bag and tie on a bow. Quick & easy!"

Supplies: Happy Harvest Die Cuts and Autumn Splendor paper, Maya Roads Envelope and Journaling Spot , Offray Ribbon, Autumn Leaves Bag, Tim Holtz embossing folder

Lydia Jackson
In the Stillness

Here's what Lydia had to say about her layout.
For this layout to save time and to keep the focus on the photo, I kept the color pallette and the lines simple. I only used a few embellishments that I felt reflected the photo and the story I wanted to tell, For instance, see how the tiny silver i-roc gems play off the sparkly paper, which in turn play off the snow in the photos. Sometimes just the right embellishment may be all you need."

Supplies used: Core'dinations Core couture, worldwin vellum, MLS tiny alphas, Fiskars punch.

Sophia Allison
Altered Diary

Sophia said this about her project:
"I kept my project very simple and easy. Used a strip of the adhesive border to go across the cover of the diary. Added a flower for accent in the corner and finished it off with a glass sticker to make it more girly for her. Added alphas for her name and voila...perfect diary for an 8 year old."

Supplies used: 2012 Diary MLS - Glitter Alphabet Sticker CarnationAdhesive Border Strips Enchanted CollectionRibbons Enchanted CollectionImaginisce Cupcake Flower Sticker Glass Enchanted Collection

Guest Designer & Giveaway!

We are thrilled to introduce our Guest Designer for the month of November ...

"Hi my name is Kim Jeffress and I come from beautiful sunny Brisbane Australia. I am thrilled to be guest designing for Imaginese this month.
I am a former kindergarten teacher now SAHM to two little boys aged 5 and 2. I have been married for 6 years to a very busy husband who works at home most evenings so this allows me to get "my Scrapping" done without any issues LOL. In all I have been scrapping for about 10 years however just in the last two or three years have I have taken it more seriously and have been so honoured to have designed for several Australian and US manufacturers and this year was asked to be a Creative Team member for Australian Scrapbooking Memories magazine! My boys are my inspiration and most of my layouts feature them and their antics, I love recording the little everyday things that I don't want to forget."

Before we share with you Kim's beautiful creations we asked her a few questions so that we could get to know her a bit better.

Q:When and where do you scrap/craft?
A: I scrapbook most nights and I am so lucky to have my own room, brimming with the most awesome goodies!

Q: What is your favourite movie?
A: I can't go past Dirty Dancing!

Q: What is one item or technique you use most often?
A: I would have to say layering and clustering...

Q: How do you kick off your creative process?
A: It always starts with the story, what memory or tidbit of information about my boys do I want to record.

Q: What is your favourite meal?
A: Did anyone say chocolate!Q: What colour and style are your favourite pair of shoes?
A: mmmm before children I would have to say red and very very HIGH however now I would say red and very very comfortable!

Q: What product couldn't you live without?
A: My 3D foam tape, as I said before I love layering and the 3D foam tape just adds another dimension to a layout.

Alright, it's time to share Kim's beautiful work with you.

She used the Bon Voyage collection and created a TRAVEL SET that includes a bag to collection memorabilia, a water mister to keep cool, a passport box, Bon Voyage card and a memory jar.

We hope that you enjoyed Kim's beautiful creations using our Bon Voyage collection. We've enjoyed having her join us this month. Make sure to check out more of her fabulous work on her blog.

We always like to giveaway our Guest Designer's favorite tool or collection and Kim's favorite Imaginisce product is the i-rock! So we are going to give one lucky follower a chance to win their very own ....

All you have to do is head on over to Kim's blog and become a follower & leave her a comment. Then head back here & leave a final comment to enter.

Winner will be announced on Friday

Day 4 ~ The i-top 2.0

We're thrilled that you are joining us again today for the final day of our release of the new i-top 2.0 tool. We hope that you've been enjoying all of the projects that we've shared so far.

If you've got some scrapbooking friends on your Christmas list this year then this would make the perfect gift (or just put it on your list!!)
It's not only used for scrapbooking but sewing, quilting, school class projects, jewellry, house decor, etc.

Let's see what our Design Team has to share with us today.

Samantha Hauzer
"So Thankful"

Samantha created this layout using an adorable picture of her children. We are all thankful for our family & friends and documenting those feelingst on a layout is a great way to share those thoughts with those we love so dearly.
On this page Samantha used the i-top and some brads to create a clean line of embellishments.

Melinda Spinks
"Thankful" frame

Here's a quote from Melinda regarding this stunning frame that she created.

"I decided to make a frame using our home grown wheat to hang on the wall and remind us to be thankful for the food we produce and to celebrate that we are having our first reasonable season in nearly a decade. The new i-top 2 extra large size brad daddies are perfect for thicker fabric like the recycled face-washer I used and the burlap is also a breeze with the new tool as the brads don't fall out beneath the fabric, now that is has the rubber ends. Love it!"

Kim Holmes
"Today I am Thankful"

We think this is a wonderful idea. Kim created an 8 1/2 x 11 layout that will travel around her Thanksgiving table gathering all
their family blessings this year - then it will go straight into her holiday album!

Giveaway Reminder!!

Day 3 ~ The i-top 2.0

The i-top 2.0 can be used to create so many amazing projects.
Hopefully you've noticed that over these last 2 days.
But we're not done yet. We've got another great show for you today so take a seat, get another cup of coffee and enjoy!!

The projects that the girls are showing today have been created using a variety of Brad Daddies (i.e 34mm ) and the Button Daddies (extra large - 34mm).

"Thankful" card

Aphra created this stunning Thanksgiving card and used the i-top 2.0 to create a brad for the center of the floral arrangement. We love all the layers and dimension on here!

Fall Necklace

Lydia has been at her crafty magic again and created this stunning piece of jewellry with her i-top 2.0, a 34mm button which she covered and then threaded onto a choker necklace. She embellished it beautifully with some feathers and some Glam Rocks using the i-top tool.

Thanksgiving Card

Cristal's children wanted to use her scrapbooking tools recently to make some cards for their teachers and grandparents. They used some twine to wrap around the brad daddy, cardstock, googly eyes (of course) and Imaginisce patterned paper.
Isn't he cute??? Great job Hobbs kids!

Fall Brooch

This breathtaking design was created using the extra large button (34mm) and covered with burlap. Erin finished it off perfectly with some silk flowers, twigs, tulle and put it on a pin backing.

Thanksgiving Napkin Ring

At the Smith's Thanksgiving dinner they write down what they are thankful for and then place those papers in a decorated vase in the center of the table. Shemaine's father reads all of them outloud after they said Grace.
What a wonderful tradition Shemaine.

Once again we want to remind you of our giveaway that's happening this week.

Did you enjoy yesterday's creations? We sure hope so because we've got some more treats to share with you today. These girls have really been thinking outside the box and have come up with some
pretty unique ideas using the i-top 2.0.
Thanksgiving Necklace

Sophia made this beautiful necklace using some Happy Harvest papers, her i-top tool and some brad daddies. It would make the perfect accessory when you go out with your family & friends over the Thanksgiving holidays.

Fall Wall Art

Heather altered a canvas with a variety of mists, some branches. She used the i-top 2.0 and covered many brad daddies (in all sizes) with papers from Happy Harvest to embellish the twig. What a fabulous piece of artwork for the fall season.
Make sure to check out Heather's blog as she has a brief tutorial on how to create this project.

"Thanksgiving Treat Tubes"

Aren't these just the cutest? Rhonda altered these tubes with various papers & die-cuts from the Happy Harvest collection. She filled them with yummy goodies and topped each one off with a large brad using the i-top 2.0 tool.

"Give Thanks" card

Marielle designed this pretty card with the Happy Harvest collection and covered 2 different sized brads to resemble pumpkins. The spiral jute finishes them off just perfectly.

Napkin Rings

Do you need some ideas for table decorations? Why not try making some of these adorable turkey napkin rings! Cari covered 2 sizes of brad daddies with paper from the Happy Harvest collection using the i-top 2.0, glued them together and then adhered them to a piece of accordian folded paper. All of this is attached to a ring of cardstock and the napkin can be inserted through the cardstock ring.

Notice that Cari also used the i-rock tool to adhere 2 black Glam Rocks for the eyes.
Cari has posted a brief tutorial on her blog if you're interested in creating these for your holiday dinner.

Don't forget about out giveaway!!

Day 1 ~ The i-top 2.0

We are thrilled to introduce the new & improved i-top tool.

You will find it to be lighter weight than the original
which makes it easier to grip.
It's a darker pink in color and the rubber keeps those brads in place
while you are working with the tool.

We have come out with a new carriage (34mm size)
that you attach to the i-top tool just as you did with the other heads.
This will allow you to create with the extra-large brads (34mm).
They are absolutely so much fun to create projects with
and our Design Team has been busy at work creating with their new tools.

Throughout the week we will be sharing many wonderful projectswith you,
The Design Team was asked to create Thanksgiving themed projects using the i-top tool.

Let's see what they've done.

"Happy Thanksgiving"

Design Team member, Michelle, created this gorgeous project using some of the Happy Harvest collection & Roly Rosies. She made some i-top magnets to hold the paper in place on her 8x8 Creative Memories display board and large brads for the centers of the flowers in the beautiful cornucopia.

Here's some close-up shots.

"Simple Joys"

Tracey created this wonderful fall themed layout using Happy Harvest collection. She used the i-top and covered some brads with burlap to use as embellishments for the flowers and leaves. You can use just about anything to cover the brads with and that's what makes the i-top 2.0 so much fun to use!

"Thank You" Hostess Gift

Are you in need of a hostess gift for the turkey dinners you've been
invited to this Thanksgiving? This would make the perfect gift!
Courtney has creatively embellished this bottle of wine with cut out leaves from our Happy Harvest collection and used the i-top brads to finish off the nicely tied raffia bow.

"Autumn Splendor"

Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for so much. The card that Keely created is perfect for this time of the year to remind friends & family how thankful you are for them.

"We Are Blessed"

Robyn used the small brad daddies to create the banner. She covered them with fabric and burlap and then wrapped some twine around each one to connect them leaving a little bit hanging at each end.

... and now it's time for a

Advent Calendar Tutorial With PINKY and a GIVEAWAY!

Good morning my Imaginisce friends,
it is me Pinky with a step by step tutorial for my HOG THE BLOG day!

I really wanted to make a video but with a project so large
I decided a step by step tutorial would be much more affective.
This advent calendar will easily hold small candies, tags, or photos.
I am going to use this for photos, I have printed up 24 photos in
1X2 size for my boys and every day they will pull out another photo
and we can reminisce about the past year ending up on the last few days of
Christmas 2010.

I just thought it would be a great way to create family time every day.
We have several advent calendars in our home and this will make
another great treasure hunt! The entire project was made with
Glue Arts Glue, tulle, and some glitter glue.

Step 1
Cut 24 2 1/4" X 3" from Peppermint Stick paper
for the pockets, cut 6 12"X 1" strips

Step 2
Punch or use your die cut machine to create 24 1 3/4" labels

Step 3
On each die cut/punch stamp the numbers (or use chipboard) 1-24.

Step 4
Adhere strips to front of "pocket" and carefully trim off excess.
Be extra careful to lay pockets side by side to keep all striped even.

Step 5
Using Imaginisce Colored Foam Tape, add 2 tape dots in the middle of each strip.

Step 6
Carefully adhere each die cut.

Step 7
Using red glitter glue, trim out each die cut/punch, set aside to dry.
Without the glitter glue these sort of blend in.

Step 8
Here I laid out the pockets to get a general idea of where the would lay.

Step 9
Place glue strip on both sides and bottom, leaving the top open.
You could also sew or stitch these pockets on, but for this one I used adhesive.

Step 10
Adhere all 4 corners first, this will help you achieve even pockets.

Step 11
Adhere all pockets, here you can see I slipped a little
package of sweet-tarts into the day 1 pocket.

Step 12
Adhere both pieces to foam board or a thick long cardstock,
trim off excess. Punch holes and add tulle.

Fill with tags, notes, candies, or photos and ENJOY your hand made
Christmas Advent Calendar!!

Now to get your holiday started right I have a GIFT from me to YOU.
Last week I picked up an extra D-Stress Tool just for this Hog The Blog
because I love the holidays and love giving!!
Just FOLLOW this blog and leave a comment,
next week a RANDOM winner will be drawn for a brand new
Imaginisce D-Stress tool to help you kick off the holiday crafting season!
If you already have on then it would make an amazing gift for a friend.

Have a wonderful day. I hope you enjoyed my day to

Choose which side you want the glitter
and lay that gently onto the Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Square.

Wrap adhesive square around the end of the snowflake then mold with fingers.

Lay on non-stick surface and sprinkle glitter overtop. Shake off excess glitter.
You will notice that there will be some adhesive on the back of the snowflake which
you can use to adhere to the front of the card.
The finished snowflake!

Out of Shape

Thinking outside of the box is never really easy to do and for most of us it is usually out of our comfort zone. Once again we've challenged our design team to be creative and create layout that was a NON-traditional shaped layout - meaning no squares, rectangles or circles.

We think that they did pretty good. What do you think?

"Tis the Season"

Supplies Used: Imaginisce Santa's Little Helper, Cottage Christmas (Snowflakes), Clear Scraps XL Deco Shape Acrylic, Bazzil Gemstones, Studio G Red & Green Glitter Glue, Offray Ribbon, American Crafts Thickers, Kanban Crafts Gold Cardstock.

Here's a few words from Cristal about her project:

"Every year I take pictures of our tree because every year we have a different theme in the home, last year's tree was a country Christmas theme and the photos were a perfect match for the Santa's Little Helper line."

"Weekend Getaway"

Supplies used: Imaginisce Postcard from Afar 12x12 Paper, Stateroom Baggage 12x12 Paper, Stamp Collection 12x12 Paper, First Class 12x12 Paper, Luggage Tags Sticker Stacker, Travel the World Chipboard Stickers, Destination Die Cuts, Foam Tape - BlackOther: Letter stickers (October Afternoon), chipboard
letters (Studio Calico), twine (The Twinery)

Robyn has a few words to share with you about her project:

"I struggled a bit with what to make for this challenge because I’ve never done a shaped layout before. But I quickly discovered that the options are virtually endless for what you can create. The Bon Voyage line, with all the luggage tags and stickers, inspired me to make a suitcase shape.

I started by cutting a 9 x 12 rectangle and rounding the corners. I cut a 4” square from the coordinating paper for the handle and rounded the top two corners. Using a craft knife, I cut the inside of the handle out and attached it to the back of the rectangle to finish off the handle. I then cut 1” strips to make the suitcase straps. Once I had finished the shape, I just created a traditional layout on top using layers of paper with embellishments and photos."

"Family is the Heart of the Home"
Supplies used: Imaginisce (Happy Harvest collection: papers, sticker stackers, Glam Rocks), Core'dinations Colorcore cardtsock, My Little Shoebox (alpha stickers), My Little Bit of Whimsy (Button), Twine (Creative Imaginations), Cricut Expression, House design is cut from the "Spring Bouquet" Cartridge

Cari also has a few words to share about her project:

"I wanted to scrapbook this picture of my family for this assignment and the perfect shape that I could think of was a house. These are the people in my life that make my home complete and it wouldn't be a home without them!
I layered punched strips of cardstock for the roof and handcut the large heart from patterned paper, sanded the edges slightly with my d-stress tool and used it for part of my title work."

We hope that you've enjoyed this "Out of Shape" way of thinking and we'd love to see your creations as you think outside the box. Feel free to share your layouts with us on our Facebook page.

And don't forget about out GIVEAWAY this week. All you have to do is leave a comment on the blog every day this week for your name to be entered to win an

I-Space:Penny Smith!

I wanted to share my scrap space-even though it is never "perfect", and I am always adding and changing things. But hopefully I can inspire you to be who you are, embrace that, and surround yourself with things that you love!

When we built this house, we decided that we wanted an office/studio, and not a dining room (how it was on the blueprints). I don't make regular formal meals, so let's make a space we'll USE-daily in this case! (And WHY do we need 2 rooms to eat in??) And I also decided that I wanted to share the space with my husband, keeping in mind the advice of a mentor about spending "side by side" together! Alas, no pink walls, or floral containers. But company when I have a random comment when he is playing video games while I create! I picked a color for the walls that was masculine enough, but worked for us both. (It is the color from my hair salon-I made them write down the number and name of the color so I could use it for our room! :) )

(That's Ashton there, ready to take you on your tour.)
My husband's desk (which I did not photograph) is in the corner. It houses his computers and monitors (yes, monitorS!). It is a regular hangout for all the geeks in our family. (That would be all of us).

The space is ~12x13 feet. It has french doors at it's opening. And a hanging light over my work table (which I got on clearance for about $13! Yay me!). And outlets in the the middle of the room underneath the table. Though I could use a larger room already (hee!) I am always looking for ways to make the most of my space.
As for that table. I found it a couple of years back at an antique store. It is an old workbench, and I LOVE it! Someone even carved their name in the top! It is smooth from use, and on one side it has many drawers and cubbies.

This room also functions as a place where I can be surrounded by pictures and things that I love... things that inspire... reminders of dreams... proof of accomplishments...
Prior to this house, I had many frames that weren't black, my current frame color of choice. This room, with it's warm rustic green, works great with those frames I use to buy (wood and gold)... I know I could spray paint them all, but for now, they work.
I also have a thing for vintage items... especially vintage cameras and vintage jars full of vintage (and modern) buttons, game pieces, toy blocks... they make me happy.
I also look for vintage or reproduction items to store my supplies.
I have some plastic in the room...
(Aquired this paper tray tower from a store that was closing.)
...but I prefer to be creative with my storage needs. Pyrex dessert glass bowls in a rack, vintage wooden shoe mold holder, old cubby cabinet, old wooden tool totes (a weakness of mine), wooden boxes (like the one holding a few albums), wire baskets, old drawers from cabinets who-knows-where-they-are... they make my space interesting, if not eclectic. :)
This cabinet use to hold knick knacks of mine-now I use it for paint. Storing them with the bottoms out makes it easiest to see the color-and to see them all.
Even the furniture pieces I use are repurposed shelves and dressers...
Want to conceal some things-vintage dressers can be found inexpensively, and are easily painted too!I also display a few favorite layouts (each member in the family gets one of the 5 spots at all times!) on a cafe rod.And my Ikea 2 cube x 4 cube shelf? Placed it on it's side, and attached legs under it for some height!
And my organization of products? Some by type, some by color, some by brand... it depends on what it is! :) But over time I went with how I scrap, and as much of it visible as possible.

Thanks for stopping by! Come visit me on my blog! All followers are always entered in all drawings! :)
And remember:

The Art of Journaling

For many of us who love to scrapbook there is one area that we often struggle with ... and that is journaling.

We often just jot down the date and place of the photo, or 1 to sentences about the event taking place or better still we take the easy way out and don’t even bother with the journaling!

But truth be told …. We’re missing the point if we think we’re preserving memories for our loved ones. Years from now when your children and other family & friends look through the many albums of layouts that you’ve created they will wonder what really happened during that vacation, or “how old was I in that picture?” Now’s the time to write it down, share your feelings & emotions, share the detailed stories and funny things your kids say on your layouts because 5-10 years from now you won’t remember.

Now you don’t have to be an amazing writer you just need to let you heart speak. Start small if this is a big jump in your creative journey. Make some point form notes/idea first and then build on that. Write your thoughts on a piece of paper that can be hidden on your layout behind a photo or tucked in an envelope. You’ll be surprised at how quickly your thoughts will come together.

Here are some pages that a few of our DT have created and each one highlights the journaling in a different way.

"Strong Start"

Here's a few words from Lydia regarding her project.

"I am one of those poeple who truly dislikes my hand writing, but sometimes even a computer and printer will goof up. Many times I am on my last scrap of paper and it prints in the wrong spot or off to one side. In this layout I use that mistake to my advantage by filling the space with additional embellishments. In this case of journalling, the writing printed to high up and left a lot of negative space to fill, so I used a pencil sticker and then doodled to fill the void."

Lydia is also sharing a tutorial on her blog today on how to use scraps of paper with your printer.
Supplies used: Imaginisce (Geek is Chic papers: Chalk Talk, School Days, Geeks Rule, Favorite Subject Geek Speak; canvas stickers, sticker stackers, Glam Rocks), My Little Shoebox (alpha stickers), Divine twine, sheep design by Lydia, banner punch (Stampin' Up), Core'dinations Cardstock, October Afternoon (small letter in banner)

"Home School"

Here are Kim's thoughts on her layout.

"Homeschooling has been such a long journey for our family and we aren't finished yet. The Geek is Chic line is so perfect for documenting our years of teaching at home - colorful, bright, and so much fun!"

Supplies used: All Imaginisce Products (Geek is Chic), EK Success Circle Punches, misc Baker's Twine and Reminisce Alphabet

"Corn Maze"

Heather's thoughts on her project.
"I prefer to hand write all of my journaling and even though I don't always like my handwriting I think it's an important part of preserving the memories. Many times I will use a pre-cut journaling card - or two or three - depending on how much I am writing but then other times, like today, I use it as a key part of the design. I wanted to highlight certain key words and I chose to do that through varying typography such as fonts, borders and the addition of color. Don't be afraid to try something new but take a hint from me and practice on some scrap paper first!"

Heather is also sharing some tips on her blog of how she did her journaling along with step-by-step photos on how she covered the i-top brads. So make sure to hop on over to her blog.

Supplies used: Imaginisce Happy Harvest colleciton - 003337 (Autumn Splendor), 003338 (Apple Crsip), 003339, 003342 (I Love Fall), 003353 (Fall Friends Icon DieCuts); i-top 2.0 small & medium brads, 18 & 22 mm punches; Bazzill Basics (Navel); Copic Sketch Markers in YG63, YR07, Y17; Kaisercraft Tiny Alpha Stickers (Toffee Apple); Cosmo Cricket Ready - Set - Chip adhesive chipboard alpha - Red Line (Used the negative space); green rafia; misc orange and chocolate ribbon

Hopefully you've been inspired today to do a bit more journaling on your layouts & projects. We'd love to see what you create so please feel free
to post your projects on our Facebook page.

Happy Fall, Y'all

Hello, friends! I'm Keely Yowler. As November begins, I'm busy holiday shopping, choosing recipes for family gatherings, and of course, decorating my home. This is my favorite time of year. I love the changing colors of the leaves, the cool breeze, and bringing out my favorite sweaters. Today, I want to share with you one of my latest holiday decor pieces that you can create with a few simple items.

I wanted to create a fun decor piece for my kitchen table, but this would look great in any room. First, I started with one of my trifle bowls from the kitchen cabinet. You could use any glass bowl, vase, or jar. Next, I took my favorite Imaginisce paper collection, "Happy Harvest". I cut two 2 1/2" x 12" strips of patterned paper to go all the way around my bowl. I then cut four 2" x 12" strips of orange cardstock and used my border punch along one side of each strip. Using my glue gun, I adhered one punched border strip to the top and one to the bottom of both of my patterned paper strips. The next step is to adhere these 2 strips around your bowl. If you are using a large bowl that requires more that one strip, it may be hard to make the edges of your strips meet. Just do your best. We will be covering the seams soon :) I cut a strip of brown ribbon to go around the center of my strips and adhered.

I cut 2 different leaf patterns with my Cricut, but you can along freehand draw leaves, use stamped leaves, or a stencil. For the bowl, you will need 4 leaves of each pattern. I scattered extra leaves I cut around the base of the bowl. If you are using the bowl on a table where all of the sides will be seen, be sure to create interest all around your project. I grouped the leaves together, covered my seams on each side and added an extra group to the back. Adhere the leaves and diecuts. I wanted to give my leaves and diecuts dimension, so I adhered with dimensional foam. If you are worried about seeing the foam from a side angle, apply the foam to only the center of your diecut and curl it's edges inward slightly. Lastly, I tucked a few extra leaves into the bowl filled with artificial pumpkins, goards, acorns, and leaves that I purchased at the dollar store. Tie an orange ribbon around the base.

Patterned paper, diecuts: Imaginisce "Happy Harvest" collection
Cardstock: Colorbok
Diecut leaves: Cricut "A Child's Year" cartridge
Ribbon: Michael's
Ink: Tsukineko
Adhesive: Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro, U Cut It 3D Adhesive Foam Blanks
Border Punch: Fiskars
Glass Trifle Bowl: Pampered Chef
Artifical Fall Foliage: The Family Dollar

Tada! There you have it. A fun centerpiece that is easy to create and change for any holiday or occasion. Wouldn't this be great filled with brightly colored candies and decorated for a birthday? Or...filled with pinecones and decorated for Winter? Enjoy! I'd love to see what you create.

I'm having an Imaginisce filled giveaway on my personal blog today with a yummy Fall recipe. Don't forget to stop by and leave me a comment for your chance to win.

International Quilt Show

Last weekend Imaginisce had the privilege of being at the International Quilt Show in Houston.

We thought it might be fun to give a wink to the quilters out there who are in love with the i-top and i-rock now!

In three days we made 382 rings or headbands that went on the heads and hands of smiling quilters. They were thrilled to make cloth-covered "buttons" with their choice of fabric, then they were delighted to learn that the backer was a twist or snap that attached to the headband or a ring.

All the flowers are from Imaginisce' Bitty Blossoms, Fashion Flowers or Cupcake Flowers - which are all 20% off wholesale now (applies to stores only).

Here's some pictures from 2 events that we were at.

Thanks again everyone!
We hope that you are enjoying your new treasures!

One door closes as another opens!

Signing off...

Today's post is going to be rather bitter-sweet as it's going to be my last as design team co-ordinator, but also a time to celebrate and welcome our new Imaginisce design team co-ordinator.

I have loved every minute of my time looking after the Imaginisce team as they are an incredible group of extremely talented crafters, and behind the scenes they are a bunch of very humorous, caring and endearing women. There is always so much more to a design team than is ever revealed publicly and I can honestly say that this group has been nothing short of wonderful... so thankyou ladies for the fun times, the sad times and the good times!

I would also like to thank YOU... the Imaginisce friends and followers who have stopped by the blog and facebook leaving beautiful comments and words of encouragement to the team and such high praise for their work. I have read every single comment and felt such pride that we have been able to make a difference in your scrappy lives and adventures, providing inspiration and ideas to use the amazing products that Imaginisce has to offer.

My decision to step down as co-ordinator hasn't come easy and I've agonized over it for quite some time, but I knew that it was the right choice for myself and my family. The farmer is working harder and longer every day and the kids are growing up fast and are starting to require rides to basketball, swimming lessons, tennis etc and my health has changed dramatically over the last few months so the time has come...

Now, I'm leaving the team is excellent hands and couldn't be more excited and delighted to hand over the reigns to the beautiful and incredibly talented Cari Locken who is adored by the team and will be a wonderful co-ordinator for the remainder of this term and also for the new 2012 team.

So as a final farewell before I hand over to Cari who will finish the post... I would just like to say that although I'm standing down as co-ordinator, I will still be around for the next two months creating projects and just hangin' with the rest of the team. And to thankyou all once again for the support and kindness you've shown during my term.
Hoo roo!
Melinda x

Signing on...

Well, as Melinda has mentioned already this is a rather bittersweet moment. I have thoroughly and completely enjoyed having Melinda as our Design Team Co-ordinator and I'm sad that she is stepping down. I've got a big job ahead of me in filling her shoes!
She has encouraged our DT in so many ways that I can't even begin to tell you and she has challenged us with a variety of assignments each month. I'm so thankful to Imaginisce for bringing us together because I treasure her friendship deeply.

When I was asked to take over this position I was a little overwhelmed at the idea ... excited yes, but still overwhelmed (as it's no little task). But this group of talented scrapbookers is amazing to work with and I know we're going to have a blast these next 2 months finishing off the term. And the Imaginisce fans - yes, that's YOU, are always amazing and your comments on the blog are always encouraging to read.

I am honored and thrilled to head up this incredible team as we finish the 2011 term and I'm very excited about our new 2012 team as I've got some great & fabulous things planned. I thank you for your support this past year and hope you will continue to join Imaginisce when we carry on with our new talented group in 2012.


And seeing as this is my last post, I'd like to go out with a bang and give-away my all-time favourite tool and my new favourite collection of Bon Voyage. So who would like to win...

- the i-top 2.0 tool

- the i-top 2.0 accessories
- the complete collection of Bon Voyage

All you have to do is:
- spread the word about today's give-away... tell your friends, plaster it on facebook, twitter, email, shout it from your roof tops.
- Leave a comment here to make Cari feel welcome

Melinda x

Winner will be announced at the end of the week!
