Santa's Little Helper - Day 3

Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer,
Had a very shiny nose!

We can't seem to resist Christmas cupcakes of any description... and today's pic just confirms our love for yummy and super cute Chritmas treats. Can you just image how much work it takes to create these delicious little cakes?

Well speaking of work, our design team have been hard at work creating a Christmas bonanza full of inspiration. And they have been so lucky to play with the new Santa's Little Helper collection but also a whole pile of wonderful mini alpha stickers and glitter title stickers from My Little Shoebox. It has certainly been like Christmas around here... that's for sure.

Santa's Little Helper - Day 2

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy candles shine so brightly!

Image via Pinterest

Don't those cupcakes look absolutely scrumptious?
We couldn't resist tempting you with these yummy treats to start off today's Christmas in July theme using our new 'Santa's Little Helper' collection. We have another inspirational feast of Christmas cheer with more design team creations so put on your Santa hat and jump aboard the sleigh as we slide through today's projects.

And we are so glad to have My Little Shoebox on board Santa's sleigh this week.  My Little Shoebox and Imaginisce have teamed up and swapped a whole bunch of fun products to use on each other's projects during the month of July so we decided that we'd showcase how wonderful the new Santa's Little Helper collection blends with the super cute and versatile mini alpha stickers and Glitter alphabet title stickers from MLSB. So keep an eye out on our design team projects and see if you can spot all the gorgeous alpha's from My Little Shoebox.

Harvest Pumpkin Tutorial

We had a lot of requests come in wanting to know how to make the set of pumpkins I created for the Happy Harvest release so I put together a little picture tutorial so you can make a set for yourself. 

  • Clay pots in 3 different sizes - I went with the smallest one I could find and went up one size from there for the next two
  • i-bond or other fast drying adhesive
  • Petal Roller
  • 1 - 2 sheets of  Fall into Fun pattern paper
  • 1 sheet Dancing Leaves pattern paper for the curly stems
  • 1 sheet cardstock - I used Bazzill Navel
  • Happy Harvest Die Cuts
  • Twine
  • Circle cutter
Here's how to make them (click to enlarge or right click to download and save to your computer):

I am planning to use mine as candy dishes (wrapped candy) on the table by my front door or maybe I will put some pretty stones in it and use them as table decorations. What would you use them for?

Live from CHA -- Day 1

Greetings from hot and humid Rosemont, Illinois -- home of CHA Summer 2011!

I'm not sure which is hotter -- the weather outside or the new collections being released on the show floor. But either way, the Imaginisce team is out in full force to share our new lines and new tools with retailers.

Here's a peek at the Imaginisce booth:

Our tools are always a big hit -- especially we've added the new i-punch, plus the d-stress case and tips, which includes a fabulous new brush tip that was pretty addictive for everyone that tried it.

One of my favorite parts of CHA is seeing all the ideas and inspiration in the display and sample projects, like these amazing samples created with the new Boy Voyage travel collection...

The Make-and-Take table was hoppin'! Here's Shauna using our new i-punch tool to create a paper bag mini album:

Don helped Darlene McGhee, hometown girl from Chicago, create a headband with the i-top:

Stay tuned for more CHA updates from the show floor over the next few days!

July Guest Designer + Giveaway!

We are very excited to welcome our guest designer for July...
Stephanie Buice
And we know you are going to love Stephanie's gorgeous projects using our Happy Camper and Happy Harvest collections. However, before we show-off Stephanie's talents how about we let you get to know her a little bit first.

Hi! I'm Stephanie Buice, I'm married to my best friend Bryan and we live happily in Alabama. I run my own scrapbooking business and thank God everyday that I get to do what I love. I've been scrappin' for about 10 years, and I was hooked right from the beginning. I also enjoy cardmaking and other paper crafts - I guess being crafty is just who I am. My inspiration comes from bright colours and fun patterned papers, I would have to say my style is clean and fun. What I love most about scrappin' is that it's an easy way for me to express myself, I believe that's exactly what art is... self expression!

We also asked Stephanie a few fun questions:

Q. Diet or Regular?
A. Regular always.

Q. When and where do you scrap/craft?
A. I scrap in my fave place, my scraproom. I love to scrap when it's raining out, it is just so much more relaxing.

Q. What is your favourite movie?
A. Sweet Home Alabama.

Q. What is one item or technique you use mosft often?
A. By far the one item that I use the most is my sewing machine. I love the finished touch that it adds.

Q.  What's the last book you have read?
A. I just finished Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen for the first time.

Q. What product couldn't you live without?
A. Cardstock, I could never have enough.

Q. How do you kick off your creative process?
A. Most of the time I start with some patterned paper that I'm crazy about, that usually gets me inspired.
Q. What is your favorite Imaginisce tool or product?
A. I've not used the i-rock yet but I have NO doubt that it would be my favourite.

We'd just like to say a big thankyou to Stephanie for all her beautiful work and for being our guest designer, especially as Stephanie hasn't been feeling very well of late... hmmm, could their be some exciting news hiding over on Stephanie's blog HERE?

Now, we asked Stephanie about her favoutite Imaginisce tool which she says would most definitely be the i-rock. So today we are going to give one lucky follower the chance to win an i-rock with some accessories plus the new CHA release ... Santa's Little Helper collection.
All you have to do is:
- Visit Stephanie's blog HERE, leave a comment and become a follower
- Leave a final comment here to enter.

Winner will be announced at the end of the week!

i-space with Robyn Schaub

I don't know about you, but whenever someone asks for a photo of my scraproom, my heart skips a beat. See, I'm a messy scrapper. It's not uncommon for me to have every work surface in my room covered in bits of paper, with piles of embellishments and every tool I own strewn around. My husband is used to finding a Thickers stuck to the shower drain...he doesn't even question it anymore.

So when the plans for the i-Space feature on the Imaginisce blog began, I had two different points of view. The optimist in me thought "Maybe this will be the push I need to clean up and reorganize my room." The pessimist thought "Oh boy...I'm in trouble now."

Fortunately, the optimist won out and I did clean up my room. Thank goodness for photos because no one in my family would ever believe it can look like this. Without further ado, let's take a tour of my temporarily clean space:

My scraproom used to be my daughters' nursery -- hence the pinstriped walls. My husband and I worked so hard to get those stripes painted that I can't bear to paint over them, so they've become part of my scraproom color scheme.

Another holdover from the nursery is this changing table/dresser that my dad built for us. It now works perfectly as my die-cutting and stamping station. I keep my Big Shot and my Slice in the cubbies and the Cricut stays out on the countertop, along with some of my most-used tools, like the i-bond, stapler, scissors and my heat embossing gun. All of my Quickutz alphabets are in the tins in the black cubbies. It's nice to have this counter space that's the perfect height for when I want to stand. (Unfortunately, it's also one of the first spaces to get covered up when I'm in a creating frenzy.)

In the drawers of this cabinet, I keep all my Cricut and Slice cartridges in one drawer.

Another drawer holds my Quickutz, Spellbinders and Papertrey Ink dies. I use the two bottom drawers for additional tool storage (including my i-top tool and accessories) and layouts that need to be filed into albums.

On the back wall, I use these decorative ledges to hold my small jars of ribbons and buttons. I sort everything by color, and my 7-year-old helps ensure I keep everything in "rainbow order."

I developed this twine storage by adapting an idea I found on Pinterest, and it's working well so far. Just poke a hole in the top of your storage jars and run the twine through. Quick and easy.

As you can see, I'm big on the "cube" storage. All of these are from Michael's, and I love that I can label what's in every drawer (because no matter how much I use this stuff, I can never remember where I stash it all). I've also converted all my cardstock into vertical storage -- just seems to work out better for me.

On the other wall is my Expedit storage. On the top rows, I keep my most recent albums (i.e., the ones I'm still poking pages into), as well as idea books, all my patterned paper (organized by manufacturer), and a bin that holds my clear stamps.

I've started using the Tim Holtz stamp storage sleeves to hold my clear stamps (stole the idea from this blog), and I love being able to flip through them all quickly. They are sorted by manufacturer, and I cut the manufacturer's logo from the packaging and stick it along the top for easy reference.

Along the bottom shelves of the Expedit are boxes and baskets that I use to store spare embellishments, kits, alterable items and photos.

I keep all my alpha stickers on the double-decker Clip-It-Up that sits on my desk. This desk has worked perfectly for me because (a) it has a really large workspace that I can spread out on, and (b) it has storage underneath where I can keep kits that I'm working with and tools that I reach for most (like my trimmers, ATG gun and all my i-rock supplies).

Speaking of i-rock supplies, they are stored in this Kaboodle make-up case from Target. I love how it has all the levels and compartments to keep the accessories in.

I added a little i-Rock bling to the inside (of course).

There is also a closet in my room, but trust me, you do NOT want me to open those doors right now. Maybe someday.


I hope you enjoyed my little tour and I would love it if you would stop by my blog today and leave a comment there. I'm giving away an Imaginisce prize pack with papers and embellishments from the Little Cutie line AND an Imaginisce d-stress tool!

Hope to see you there.

i-space with Michelle Unruh

Hello everyone! Today, it is my turn to share with you where I create. My scrap room has played musical chairs so to speak. Originally, when we built our home, my space was a 4ft. banquet table in the corner of our den. Our oldest moved out (and back in for about 6 months) and I then took over her room and now have my own space again. It is still a work in progress. Trim work needs to be put around windows. Ceiling needs to be sprayed, but we are waiting until the whole basement is finished to have it all done at once.

Here is a view from the doorway. It is not a big room by any means, but it works.
I commandeered my kids Expedit from Ikea. Love that store! I also purchased my tables and chair there as well.
Here is where I keep my Cricut Expression, Slice machine and my old Sizzix guillotine die cutting machine. I have my Slice disks, extra blades and embossing tips in the wicker basket. The photo box under my Cricut houses my cartridges. I have the larger templates to my CM cutting system and other odds and ends in the Longaberger basket on the bottom.
I love my Expedit shelf! The bottom cubbies house my kits and my Imaginisce product. The small white boxes contain ribbon and misc. smaller embellies and scraps in the larger boxes. I keep my mists, stickles, chalk inks in trays. The white wicker baskets contain my flowers, rub ons, chipboard, alphas and stamps and inks. The top row of cubbies has things I have made and cards that have been sent to me. Hiding amongst the cards are my Starbucks bottles of buttons. I house my paper in vertical cropper hoppers in the closet along with my photos and other misc items.
This spring, I went out and bought a fishing tackle box to contain all of my Imaginisce tools and pieces for the i-top and all of my i-rock gems and i-bond glue sticks. I like that I can just pull out the container that has what I need and bring it to my desk.

There you have it. I hope you have enjoyed peeking into my scrap space. I am so grateful to have my own room to create in. I love seeing other scrap rooms. Leave a comment and link me to your space. I am curious to know if you print your own photos or send them out. And, what do you do, if you have any extra photos that didn't make it onto a page. I have so many extra photos.

A feather on top

I love to get dressed up, whether it's for a fun photo shoot, a party or a Halloween get up. One of the niftiest fashion trends right now are fascinators. These pretty head pieces can be expensive, so why not make your own.

Here's how
Start with your I-bond, a headband, a pile of fun feathers, and some thin foam.
Cut the thin foam into an eye shape about 6 in long.

with the I-bond start adhering the feathers at the tip

Continue to layer the feathers over top of one another  until the whole "eye" is covered

Lastly I attached the whole thing to the head band with the I-Bond and decorated with a vintage broach.

 I Hope that you will give this a try, get dressed up and don't forget to take pictures, we always love to see what you've created on our facebook page.

New Zealand's SENZ 2011 Scrapbooking Cardmaking and Craft Expo

Lori Allred just returned from New Zealand's SENZ 2011 Scrapbooking Cardmaking and Craft Expo where she taught the Kiwis Imaginisce classes and did daily demos of the popular tools we are well known around the world for offering paper crafters. 

The event was held at the this unique location in New Zealand for three days...
Telstra Convention Center - New Zealand

Lori worked with the staff and owner of Scrapaholics at the event. She raved about how great they were to work with and how successful the event had been!

Here's a quick peek at the great staff and students that helped make the Imaginisce appearance at Senz this year a great one!! 
Jodi, Scrapaholics owner and staff member Vivian
The i-bond was one of the most popular tools featured at Scrapaholics. Students also tried out making Roly Rosies with the Petal Roler and Cupcake Flowers.

In class the Senz students created a fun mini album with Berrylicious, a double-page layout with Garden Party and a two 12x12 layout class featuring Little Cutie. The most popular tool that the awesome students couldn't resist was the popular i-rock tool and i-rock accessories. They were "rockin" the classes!!

Lori also spent a lot of time each day demonstrating the popular i-top tool. Senz attendees of all ages loved leaving with a fun snap RING. Even the skeptical crafter stopped to make a flower ring and left with a huge smile on their face (and sometimes and extra ring to share with a friend). Below KK from Kays Company (Imaginisce distributor) took her turn at the make and take booth for Scrapaholics (isn't she cute)!!

What a great place to teach at and what a great time Lori and the paper crafters of New Zealand had at Senz!
