Mix It Up - Day 4

If you've been joining us this past week then you know that our Designers have been challenged to use 3 Imaginisce collection & mix them up.

Their guidelines were:
Use paper from 1 collection, chipboard embellishment from another and die cuts from a third collection.

Today we have Mary Ann Jenkins sharing her creativity with us.


I love mixing and matching papers and embellishments when I scrapbook, this layout would be a perfect example. You would never know it's a mixture of Halloween, Birthday and Christmas collections would  you? Even though it's mixing from those 3 completely different themes, the layout came together and looks perfect for Christmas!



 
Supplies Used: Papers: Celebrate you, Pick of the Patch, Candy Can Forest,  Diecuts: Wish Come True Die, Rejoice,  Chipbaord: Peace on Earth

*******

Don't forget that tomorrow is the final day for our 2013 Design Team Call.
All submissions must be in by 12 midnight PST .

Join us tomorrow as we announce the winners from our I-Challenge Event.

MIx It Up - Day 3

Thanks for joining us again today for another Mix it Up day.

The DT was challenged to create a project mixing up 3 collections (using paper from 1, chipboard embellishments from another and die cuts from a third collection).

Today we have Ilene & Guiseppa sharing their work.

*******


Mixing and matching different collections is one of my favorite things to do. As long as you can find some sort of connecting theme or color, even if it's a stretch, you can still make it work. 


 For example, the die-cut title was from the "Hello Cupcake" collection, but the pink matched relatively well, and the sentiment itself went with the layout.


And the chipboard leaves I used from the "Monster Mash" collection were even more of a stretch, but they did match the photo itself, so they created a nice accent.


Supplies: Paper, Buttons, Stickers: Imaginisce (Love You More), Die Cut: Imaginisce (Hello Cupcake), Chipboard Stickers: Imaginisce (Monster Mash), Bling: Recollections, Flower: IAmRoses.com, Color Spray: Maya Road, Chalk Ink: Tsukineko, Other: cardstock






I love mixing up different collections, so I decided to  mix it up real good this time.  I created this pick jar.  It is full of picks for all holidays plus a birthday one.  Now, if I want that added embellishment to add to the packaging of my gift, in a birthday cake or for any decoration...I have one.  Imaginisce's collections were perfect to create this fun project.  






Imaginisce Supplies: Hello Cupcake- patterned paper and Die Cuts, Love You More- patterned paper and Stickers, Hippity Hop- patterned paper and Die Cuts, Christmas Cheer- patterned paper, Making waves- patterned paper, Monster Mash- patterned paper, Canvas Stickers and Sticker Stackers

Mix It Up - Day 2



As we mentioned yesterday, we have challenged a few of our Design Team members to mixing up a variety of Imaginisce collections.

Here were their guidelines:
Create a layout or card mixing 3 Imaginisce collections.
 They must use paper from 1 collection, chipboard embellishments from another collection & die cuts from a third collection.

Let's take a look at today's project for this challenge.


*******


I started with a die cut from the Collection and then found similar colors of the fonts in other collections. By using B Sides I was able to use theme papers for a non theme layout and meet the elements of the challenge. 




Although not a requirement, I also used an Imaginisce journaling sticker for my journaling. I just pulled the little popped up image of the bride of frankenstein off so I could use it on this non Halloween layout.





Supplies Used: Sole Sisters Die Cut, Monster Mash Chipboard, Hello Cupcake patterned papers, Makin' Waves patterned paper

Mix It Up - Day 1

Who says that you have to stick with one collection when you're 
creating a layout or card ... or any type of project??   
It's fun to mix things up once in a while and see how a variety of collections can work together.


We gave our a few of our design team members a little challenge.

Create a layout or card mixing 3 Imaginisce collections.
 They must use paper from 1 collection, chipboard embellishments from another collection & die cuts from a third collection.


*******

Today we have Adora Concepcion
sharing her creation for this challenge.


I created this little hanging Christmas decor using a cardboard shaped pennant for a durable base. This kind of projects are so much fun to make and you can use it year after year .  
This is my take on the challenge to mix up 3  collections in one project.
To embellish the pennant shape cardboard, I started by cutting smaller pennant shape patterned paper , added diecuts, ribbons and washi tape.



Supplies: Imaginisce; Monster Mash-Treat & Treats paper; Love You More-Stuck on You Washi Tape; Christmas Cheer Diecuts.

*******

Just a reminder ... You only have a few more days left to get your application in 
for our 2013 Design Team call.
Info about the call is posted HERE.
Deadline is Fri., Nov. 30th 12 midnight PST.

Good luck everyone!!

Product Challenge - Day 2

We're back with Day 2 of our Iron-on Motif Product Challenge.

Today Rhonda is going to show you what she created using motifs like this one.



Rhonda Van Ginkel

I just love the iron-on motifs from Imaginisce!  They are so elegant in design and simple to use too!

For my project, I created a pretty card.  The new 'Love You More' collection is so stunning, I just can't keep my hands off of it!  I created the card base from the dramatic grey pattern paper with my Silhouette.  Once that was cut, I selected my motif flourish.  Using the peek-a-boo trio panel and the motif, I determined the placement for my motif and heat set the design in place using my iRock Mini Iron.


Then I cut my circle designs and sentiments using the Silhouette.  I customized another set of plain circles to then frame in my designs.  A bit of foam tape elevates the panel above the white cardstock background.  The finishing touches were a few florals, a flourish and leaves.



I hope you give the iron-on motifs a try, I know you will love them!!!

Ingredients:  Love You More collection, iRock Motif and iRock Mini Iron by Imaginisce, MFT Floral and Peek-a-Boo Trio Dies, Memory Box flourish die, Martha Stewart frond and rose leaf punches, Cardstock by AC, Silhouette




 Thanks Rhonda. This card is so elegant and romantic!

What would you use these Iron-on motifs for?

Product Challenge - Day 1

We want to begin today's post with a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you who joined us these past 3 days for our i-Challenge event!!   
We hope that you enjoyed the challenges and that you accomplished a lot.  We enjoyed seeing your work too.

Don't forget ... if you didn't have time to finish up the challenges you still have until this Wednesday, Nov. 21st to complete them.  You must submit them in order to be eligible for the prizes. (You can post them on the Facebook Event page.)

Winners from all the challenges this past weekend will be announced this coming Friday!


*******

This week we asked our Design Team to focus on a super fun & beautiful 
product from our i-rock collection.

These fabulous motifs are adhered onto paper, denim, t-shirts, etc using the i-rock Mini Iron.
Here's a few examples that we've had posted on our website.

Today we have a couple of our designers sharing with you what they created using these fabulous little rhinestone designs.

Let's begin with .... 


Queen for a Day Card

Thursday is Thanksgiving and we always spend it with my husband's family when we are in town. This year, my sister-in-law has agreed to cook the whole meal! I thought it would be fun to thank her by creating a card telling her that we will all stay out of her way and do exactly what she orders us to do -- making her the Queen for a Day! I created it with the fabulous Queen Bee Iron-On Motif. At first, I was a little dubious about using an iron on paper, but with the help of both this video and the iRock Mini Iron it turned out to be easy-peasy!




Supplies used:
Patterned Paper: Love You More & Sole Sister collections (Imaginisce); Accents: Queen Bee Iron-On Motif (Imaginisce); Cardstock: Basic Black (Stampin' Up!); Tools: iRock Mini Iron (Imaginisce); Fibers: striped ribbon (May Arts); Font: Edwardian Script (Microsoft)





This holiday card does double duty!  The recipient can remove the 'snowflake' medallion and use it as an ornament or package topper.  Just be sure to use a re-positionable tape when attaching the piece to the card-front. 



Supplies: 
i-rock Fleur de Bling Iron-On Motif; i-rock Mini Iron; i-top; Paper Punch - Medium; Brad Daddies - Medium  Christmas Cheer- Christmas Joy 12 x 12 Paper; Warm Wishes 12 x 12 Paper and Happy Holidays 5 x 12 Sticker Stacker


Aren't those pretty?
Thanks so much for sharing your ideas ladies!

Just a reminder our DT call ends in 2 weeks.

i-Challenge - Day 2



So are you having fun with the challenges?
We hope so.

We've got a couple more to share with you today.

*******

Saturday Challenges:

Challenge #3: Color Challenge with Regina Mangum

Color challenges are one of my own personal favorites, so I was really excited to get to host my own for Imaginisce! To begin, I chose a bold color palette, which I thought would work well for two different projects: a card and a layout. I wanted colors that would be both complimentary and a little off the beaten path for Halloween and for Fall. 


I created this Happy Fall card using papers from the Monster Mash collection - I just love when I can use one kind of collection for many different occasions! The "tree" is actually a die-cut leaf from the Ghoulish Delights pack. I added some of the wee Chopboard chipboard sticker leaves and penned in some breezy trails. I thought the addition of black in the color palette would make for an unusual color combination for an autumn card!



To scrap my son's Halloween photo, I again turned to Monster Mash. I love that the colors are not just the traditional orange and black. I let the Ghoulish Delights die-cuts work their magic and, for something a little different, wrote my journaling along the upper edges of the circles in the Tricks & Treats patterned paper.



I hope you will join me for this Color Challenge -- I can't wait to see what you create!



Challenge #4: Stitching Challenge with Rebecca Keppel

My challenge is a technique challenge--use stitching on a paper project. The stitching can be either by hand or by sewing machine or both. I chose to do both (a large hand drawn and then hand stitched heart and lots of bits of machine stitching throughout). 

I employed three of my favorite uses for machine stitching on this layout. 
  • The first is borders. There are straight lines stitched through the paper strips at the top and bottom of the layout. I think a straight stitched border adds definition similar to the way inked edges do. 
  • The second is underlining a title. 
  • And the third is punching multiple papers with the same punch, stacking them and stitching down the middle--just a fun look! 
So get out the needle and thread for this challenge!









You can find the i-Challenge Rules HERE.
You have until Wed., Nov. 21st to get your challenges submitted.

The prizes for today's challenges will be:
(one winner from each challenge will be chosen randomly)

Love You More Release Party - Day 4


We've reached the last day of our Release party for the Love You More Collection and we hope that you've fallen in love with it.

Today we have a few more designers share their creations with us using this new collection.



I really loved the soft grey paper in this line, and the grey doily patterned sheet was just too pretty to pass up. I embellished it with some real doilies, and then, of course, I had to embellish the center doily with some sparkle and diamonds, with the help of my I-Rock. I love that this line is so versatile and works just as beautifully with my girly layouts of my daughter as it would with a Valentine's Day theme.



Supplies:

XOXO

The combination of pink and grey in this collection was so easy to work with, and looked beautiful with black and white mixed in. 


I added a lot of silver on this layout and it fit the color scheme really well also. This photo was taken on January 1st, so to go with the winter theme, I added snowflakes and icicles, as well as "snow" on the lamp. For the snow effect, simply dab some molding paste onto the top surfaces where the snow would pile on.

The color combination and the prints make this a gorgeous collection. Pink, red and with a touch of grey are perfect together.




I used Brave Heart as the background of my layout and layered it with, Make a Wish and Be Mine papers. I then, embellished
the page with, Love Birds Sticker Sheetsbuttons and ribbons that goes well with my nieces' photos.


With the left over papers I used from my layout, I also created this, Be Mine card. I love how it turned out and it's fast and easy.

Love You More Release Party - Day 3





Welcome to Day 3 our release party for our Love You More collection.

Imaginisce has a couple of other new goodies in this collection that you are sure to love!!

Push My Button Pack
Stuck on You Washi Tape
The Design Team have been inspiring us already with their creativity using the Washi Tape. 
Let's take a look at what they have to share with us today.

*******

My Sweets
I created this layout with my hubby in mind.  I really wanted to focus on the picture.  So, I decided to created a lot framing and layers.  There are so many fun patterns in this collection that the layering and framing really worked with all of the patterned papers.




I decided that the fun patterned paper with all kinds of frames and journaling spots would be perfect for a mini album.  I cut them all up, adding places for journaling and photos.  This is a fun way to create a mini album really fast.








Supplies: Love You More- patterned paper, stickers and letter stickers, I-Top
Other Supplies: wood embelishments, brads, buttons, Silhoutte and twine





Scalloped Heart Treat BoxI happened to run across this chipboard heart while digging through my stash...I've had it for quite some time, but you could create something similar using a favorite die-cutting system or those thin wooden hearts would work too!  


At the center of the scalloped heart was a smaller, pop-out heart.  I thought it would be a fun idea to make a little pocket between the two so that candies, trinkets or small valentine cards could be stored there.  This was as easy as tracing, cutting and gluing :) 


 For the banner, I wrapped bits of washi tape around baker's twine and then trimmed and added on sticker letters.  


Supplies: Love You More- Brave Heart 12 x 12 Paper; Love Letters 12 x 12 Alphabet Sticker Sheet; Love Birds 12 x 12 Sticker Sheet; Push My Button Pack; Stuck on You Washi Tape, Tools- d-stress; clicut


Sydnee's First Wedding LayoutSydnee attended her very first wedding in 2006...it's now almost 2013 and I have been waiting for the perfect papers to scrap this photo!  Because it is a single 5x7, I wanted to add lots of layering below the picture.  



After cutting her name out with apersonal die-cutting machine, I was able to build the rest of the title using different sticker alphas.  I'm so happy that Love You More came about...this sweet photo now has a home in our scrapbook :)


Supplies: Love You More- Love Notes 12 x 12 Paper; Groovy Love 12 x 12 Paper; Heart Attach 12 x 12 Paper; Bee Mine 12 x 12 Paper; Push My Button Pack; Love Birds 12 x 12 Sticker Sheet; Love Letters 12 x 12 Alphabet Sticker Sheet



This picture was taken at a casual home wedding we went to in October, and I could think of nothing better than the Love You More line to scrap this photo. With love on our minds that day, we'll always remember where we were when this picture was taken.



Supplies: Imaginisce: Love You More pattern paper, stickers, letter stickers, washi. May Arts ribbon, mists, white card stock, foam pop dots, TomBow adhesive dot runner


No better way to show your love than with a card! I love the hexagon paper in the Love You More collection and the sentiments on the stickers are so easy to use for cards.



Supplies: Imaginisce: Love You More pattern paper, stickers, washi, foam pop dots, twine


Cari Locken

I think that my most favorite thing about this collection is the gray patterned papers and the different embellishments that Imaginisce created with this line.  They are so striking, so versatile and just so much fun to work with.


I used my Cricut Expression to cut out the heart designs on the spotted paper. I traced the heart shapes onto the gray paper and then placed small scraps of different patterned papers.  I adhered the spotted paper (with the cut out heart shapes) using some foam tape. This gave a bit of dimension which I love.
Please feel free to hop over to my blog for more pics and details about my layout.


Supplies: Imaginisce (Love You More collection : papers, stickers, Washi tape)

Would you like to be the lucky winner of this fabulous collection?


Just leave us a comment on the blog post today and

Love You More Release Party - Day 2


Welcome to Day 2 of our Love You More release party!


So are you drooling yet??
Isn't this an incredible collection?

Not only are the patterned papers awesome but Imaginisce has come out with some incredible 12x12 sticker sheets.  And guess what??
There's alphabet stickers!!!!

Love Letters 12x12 Sticker Sheet

Love Birds 12x12 Sticker Sheet

How fun are these?
The possibilities are endless for these designs.

Now let's take a look at what a few more of our Design Team members have created with this collection.

*******

Heather Leopard

I decided to make 2 mini albums with this collection. I cut the album from all the 12x12 paper in the Imaginisce Love You More collection, using my CAMEO and various cutting files (details on my blog).

Both minis are for my girls – the Love You More mini will be a mini album with photos and notes documenting me and my hubby’s love story ‘cause I like to make sure they know how much we care for each other.


The XOXO one is going to be a coupon book for my girls to. I’ll be adding little coupon notes to the slip in cards for fun activities we can do together as a family in February.



Supplies: Imaginisce (Love You More collection: patterned papers (Border Love, Love Notes, Heart Attack, Bee Mine, Hugs & Kisses, Cupids Arrow, Groovy Love,  Brave Heart), Stickers (Love Birds), Washi Tape)


Regina Mangum


Love Birds Card
When I saw the Border Love patterned paper, I just knew I wanted to use the sweet little love birds on a card. I fussy cut a pair along with a banner. For a finishing touch, I added one of the coordinating buttons and a sweet little bow.



Supplies:
Patterned paper: Border Love, Love Notes, Brave Heart from Love You More Collection (Imaginisce); CardstockSolar White (Neenah); Dies: Lacey Squares (Spellbinders); Fibers: ribbon (May Arts); Accents: Button from Push My Button pack (Imaginisce)


You & Me Frame
My best little valentine is my son. For some reason, we don't have very many photos of the two of us together, so I wanted to make something special to display one of the few photos we do have. I created this beveled frame from the darling Heart Attach and Make a Wish patterned paper, adding Love Letter alphabet and Love Birds stickers for a pretty frame to brighten my craft room.


Supplies:
Patterned paper Heart Attach, Make a Wish from Love You More Collection (Imaginisce); Stickers: Love Letter alphabet, Love Birds (Imaginisce); Electronic File: Beveled Frame (Lori Whitlock for Silhouette)

Love You More Release Party - Day 1


Have you ever been twitterpated?
Well you most certainly will be after this week!!

We are so thrilled to be sharing with you our Love You More collection.
The Design Team have been 'ooing' and 'ahhing' over this collection and have fallen in love with it.

So welcome to Day 1 of our release party.

Here's a look at the stunning collection of patterned 12x12 papers. 
(even more than our usual collections)

Border Love

Love Notes

Heart Attack

Make a Wish

Bee Mine

Hugs & Kisses

Cupids Arrow

Groovy Love

Brave Heart


Now let's take a look at what a few our designers have created for today.

********


I LOVE this collection. It is my favorite Imaginisce collection ever! I tend to really like Valentine's collections because they are so versatile for general love themed projects, but this one is perfect because while it has Valentine's graphics, it also has trendy images like chevron, doilies and polka dots.

For the My 2 Valentines layout, I cut a large chevron heart with my Cameo. Then I folded and placed and continued folding and placing the red chevron washi around the heart, just underneath for a trim similar to the ones on those big heart boxes of candy.



For the You and Me layout I focused on the stickers and buttons. One of the stickers that says the name of the collection "Love You More" reminded me of something my son and I say all the time at night before bed, so I made that the focus. I placed that sticker on white cardstock so I could use dimensional adhesive and really make it central to the layout.





Supplies:  Imaginisce (Love You More collection: Patterned Papers, Stickers, Washi Tape,Buttons);  Bazzill Cardstock, Studio Calico Mister Huey's Mist, Jenni Bowlin Paint Dabber, The Twinery Twine, Therm O Web Adhesives


I am so excited about the new "Love You More" collection!  The colors are beautiful, and the really fun part...there's washi tape!!
As you can see, this is a Valentine's collection, but I used it for a photo from our vacation this past summer. I love when I can use something for more than just one occasion!


I also made a quick and easy card using one of the cute stickers, along with a button from the collection. Oh, and here's the great washi tape!

Supplies: Imaginisce (Love You More collection: patterned paper, buttons, stickers)




Love You More is our romantic new release that you will not be able to put down!  This collection is incredible!!!

My first project is a layout that I created using one of our wedding photos.  The inspiration was the "Always and Forever" sentiment on the 4x6 card.  I had my husbands ring engraved with this sentiment so it seemed the perfect fit to use it for my title work here.  I selected one of our wedding photos in black and white to compliment the grey tones in the collection.  The lacy border was fussy cut and layered under my photo with some die cuts.  I used the washi tape and layered it with some ribbon to the right of my photo.  



Tip:  To help keep thicker ribbon together when using your iMagicut ribbon cutter to make a chevron cut, use a bit of washi tape to keep your fold in place.  

Supplies:  Love You More collection, Foam Tape, POGO, i-Rock, Glam Rocks Heart, Hot Rocks Compact - Crystal, ImagiCut by Imaginisce.  Cheery Lynn Anastasia Border Die, MFT Scallop Border die and Fishtails, Spellbinder's Grand Oval and Rectangle Scallop dies, Memory Works die, Corner Chomper by We R Memory Keepers, Jenni Bowlin Studio Tab punch and gray stick pin, Maya Road heart stick pin, Cardstock by Bazzill.  Other:  Sewing Machine, thread, seam binding ribbon.

-------

My next project is a card.  I wanted to create something that can be used for a loving note of encouragement or a birthday.  You see several of the stickers from the collection here.  Some foam tape was used under my sentiment for dimension.  A bit of thin ribbon tied simply finished the card.  


The inside of the card features one of the 3x4 journaling cards.

Supplies:  Love You More collection, Foam Tape and POGO by Imaginisce, Doily Die by Cheery Lynn Designs, Corner Chomper by We R Memory Keepers, Cardstock by Bazzill
