Fit for a Princess!


With all the hype surrounding the wedding today between Prince William and Kate Middleton we thought it would be fitting to put a bit of a royal twist on todays projects!

As you know we've been indulging in a little product swap with Clear Scraps and playing with their wonderful acrylic mini albums. So imagine Tracey's delight when she opened her package and found this enchanting 'carriage' shaped album. Tracey has taken her project to a whole new level of gorgeousness and transformed the acrylic into a royal carraige in waiting for any little princess! To view the inside of Tracey's project you will need to head overe HERE.

And in keeping with the English traditions we move onto Beth's Tea Party mini album with its pretty ribbons, brightly decorated pages using the Enchanted collection and tiny little teapot complete with royal crown. For all the inside pages please pop over to Beth's blog HERE.

Every little girl dreams of being a princess and the fantasy world that those dreams create usually hold a butterfly or two. Sophia recieved the 8" x 8" butterfly album which she has beautifully decorated, also using the Enchanted collection. Sophia's inside pages can be viewed on her blog HERE.

By Sophia Allison

Acrylic mini albums don't always need to be used in their entirety as Shemaine shows with her single page wall hanging for her little princesses room. She has taken just one of the acrylic album pages and adorned it with the Enchanted range including the 'If the Crown Fits' paper for the 'L' monogram and added some sparkle with the i-rock embellishements.

Love... no wedding is complete without it! Keely has designed her 'Things I Love Today' album using the bright and cheeky Berrylicious collection and a Clear Scraps mini tab album. Keely's inside pages can be viewed on her blog HERE.

Click it with Cricut - Spotlight on Easter!




Whether you celebrate Easter or not there is no denying that most of us enjoy time with our loved ones and indulging in a piece of chocolate or two... perhaps even more but we won't go there! So this brings us to todays theme of all things 'Easter' inspired by combining non-Easter related products. Yes, you read that right, we asked our talented duo of Rhonda and Shemaine to conjure up Easter projects without a single scrap of bunny printed paper or Easter theme Cricut cartridge in sight! Let's see how they went...


Hi all, it's Rhonda and I'm going to show you how to create two Easter cards by using non-Easter product. Our latest release, Little Cutie has the perfect Easter colors and I just couldn't resist creating a traditional themed card.  Ironically, this card was found on the "Winter Woodlands" Cricut Cartridge.  That's what is so wonderful about Cricut cartridges, they never cease to surprise you with their extreme versatility!

I loved using my Cuttlebug embossing folders on this project to give some more texture and dimension.


To create the “Hop” the Bunny Card:
• Using Cricut cartridge Winter Woodlands, cut 1 < Rabbit Card > at 5 ½ inches, 1 < Rabbit Card > layer at 5 ½ inches, 1 < Rabbit > at 5 inches, 1 < Rabbit-s > at 5 inches, 1 < Rabbit – Layers > at 5 ½ inches.
• Ink edges with distress ink (Worn Lipstick, Yellow Mustard, Weathered Wood).
• Emboss blue card liner with Cuttlebug Birds & Swirls folder.
• Emboss rabbit-s parts with Cuttlebug D’vine Swirl folder, attach layers (eyes and nose).
• Adhere embossed liner to interior of card.
• Adhere 5 inch Rabbit to card.
• Using foam dots, attach Rabbit contrast pieces.
• Add chipboard flower to Rabbit’s tail.
• Trim banner from pattern paper, attach as shown adding bows to ends.
• Add crinkle ribbon or other ribbon bow as desired at Rabbits chin.

Supplies:
- Cricut cartridge "Winter Woodlands"
- Imaginisce “Little Cutie – Girl”, “Sweet Baby”, “Beyond Precious”, Chipboard Stickers, “Daddy’s Little Girl”
- Imaginisce “Garden Party”, “Row of Posies"
- Yellow Cardstock
- Black Cardstock
- Folk Art Pink Paint
- Glue Arts 3D Combo Pac
- Ribbon, Hug Snug
- String, J & P Coates Pearl Cotton
- Distress Ink, “Mustard Seed”


As a Mom of two little boys, I've definitely learned to appreciate the passion for which they express happiness for dinosaurs, cars and anything loud or fast!  I thought it would be fun to create a dinosaur egg card using the Dino Roar collection.  This card was a total experiment and you know I've got to make another for my little guy next.


To create the “Dino Happy Easter” Shaped Card:
• Using Cricut cartridge Create a Critter, cut 1 < Shell > at 6 inches
• Using Cricut cartridge Doodlecharms, cut 1 < Egg > at 6 ½ inches
• Using Cricut cartridge Wild Card, cut 1 < Giftbox - Phrase > at 3 ½ inches (Easter)
• Using Cricut cartridge Beyond Birthdays, cut 1 < HappyDay > at 2 ¾ inches (Happy)
• Ink edges of your cut pieces with respective distress inks.
• Machine or faux stitch around egg pieces as desired.  (Optional)
• Cut piece of burlap to fit width of bottom of Shell, approximately 1” high, fringe, then trim along the crack shape carefully.
• Using 3 in 1 liquid glue, attach burlap to back of paper.  Set aside to dry.
• Cover one 22 mm i-top brad and two 16 mm i-top brads with coordinating circles from Primordial Ooze paper.
• Add Stickles to Happy and Easter cut sentiments, let dry.
• Attach the top of Shell at an angle to your Egg using Glue Glider Pro.
• Use Xyron for “Happy”, attach to card, use mini foam dots for “Easter” word.
• Attach 16 mm i-top brads, one on top and one on bottom of card.
• Using i-Rock, attach green or yellow crystals.
• Add foam dots to back of Shell bottom, attach carefully to create egg.
• Cut chipboard dinosaur tail so you can extend out of the card if desired.
• Create loose bow with seam binding ribbon, pierce and secure large brad through loops.
• Determine location for 22mm i-top brad, then pierce and attach as shown.
• Attach chipboard dinosaur and “Rawr” sentiment.  I used foam dots for the Rawr chipboard
• Arrange Metal Silver Tears to create a little “Dino Drool”.

Supplies:
- Cricut cartridges "Create a Critter", “Wild Card”, “Beyond Birthdays”, “
- Imaginisce “Dino Roar”, “Primordial Ooze”, “Petrified Wood”, Chipboard Stickers, “Prehistoric Pals”

Tool Time - Video- GiveAway!

Welcome to our new Tool Time segement where we will be showcasing a different Imaginisce tool every couple of weeks and providing you with tips, tricks, maintenance and project ideas to get the most out of your tools. Or for those of you who are yet to own one of our gorgeous pink tools, perhaps we might give you just the right amount of inspiration to put one or two on your wish list!

For our first episode of Tool-Time we are going to head straight for the top of the tool-box and take out the new d-stress Tool as we recieve so many queries in regards to 'what can you do' with a d-stress tool?
And to introduce you to this wonderful little gadget we have none other than our video-queen Cristal 'Pinky' Hobbs who is going to show you all the wonderful things the d-stress can be used to create.

So it is over to Pinky...
 
Hey everyone Pinky here!
At Imaginisce they want you to know just how much fun
and how useful the tools are, so they asked me to make a little video
tutorial and a project to share my favorite d-stress techniques with you!! And I'm so glad that I get to showcase the d-stress tool as it is fast becoming my all time favourite tool from Imaginisce.


So grab a cuppa and get comfy while I walk you through this clever new pink tool...


Here is a card that I made using my d-stress
 and not only on the card itself (the embossing)...

...but also on the acrylic to set the Hot Rocks permanently.

I also d-stressed the flower before painting to give it a shabby chic appearance.


The tag was painted prior to d-stressing to highlight the beautiful yellow colour underneath.

The d-stress is so versatile, you will find yourself reaching for it
time and time again!
It really is one of my favorite tools and I am always
finding new uses for it.
I hope you have enjoyed learning more about this unique tool and been inspired to give it a try.
Pinky

GIVEAWAY
We couldn't have a Tool Time segment without giving away one of the tools, that just wouldn't be fair, would it?
So, we are going to give away a brand new
d-stress tool package
*prize package ships in May*

Now for your chance to win we ask that you pop by Pinky's blog to catch up on more tips and tricks with the d-stress tool and to let her know how much you enjoyed her Tool Time video and projects. You will find Pinky on her blog here:

and then come back and tell us what you would like to see on our next Tool Time segment.
Winner announced tomorrow!
