Guest Designer & Giveaway!


This month our Guest Designer is ...


We are thrilled to have Christine joining us this month.
Before we get started here's a brief bio about her.


"I am a mother of three beautiful children, 19, 13, and 9 months, no that is not a typo :), and the wife of an adoring and supportive husband. I live in Birmingham, Alabama but spend most of my life living in Sarasota, Florida. My family has always enjoyed my scrapbooking hobby and love to be the star of my "project".
I have been scrapbooking for about 15 years and remember the first time I went to a crop. It was like a whole new world opened up for me. I had always enjoyed photography but this new hobby allowed me to create something from my pictures and also give them a voice. I know now that there are so many stories in our pictures that would never be told without scrapbooking. Well like everyone knows, this hobby called scrapbooking can really lead you into other crafting worlds and it wasn't long before I was learning how to stamp and make cards and other papercraft items.
I love the scrapbooking business. It is a wonderful beautiful community filled the most lovely people. We care about each other, we encourage each other and we share a passion like no other and I am so glad to be a part of it. "

You can see more of Christine's beautiful work on her blog HERE.

*******
We asked Christine a few questions to find out a little bit more about her.

Q: Favorite TV show.
A: My favorite TV shows right now are Criminal Minds and Escape from Alcatraz

Q: Describe your personality in one word.
A: Encouraging

Q: Diet or Regular?
A: No Diet for this girl!

Q: If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
A: I would love to live in Italy

Q: How did you get into scrapbooking? How would you describe your style?
A: I got into scrapbooking through a friend and because I needed somewhere to put all the photos I loved to take. I think my style is clean and graphic. I'm a very linear person and so this style suits me.

Well, now that you know a little bit more about Christine let's see some of her gorgeous projects!


Summer Beach Party Ensemble

I had so much fun creating with the Making Waves collection. The bright fun colors and cute embellishments are so me!! Party ensembles are so in right now and actually incredibly fun to make so it wasn't a hard decision to let that theme inspire me.

Supplies: Imaginisce ( Making Waves paper and embellishments, i-rock tool and Glam Rocks, White colored foam squares); Words on Invitation, SRM stickers; Treasure box diecut, Silhouette; Cupcake liner diecut, SVG cuts; Diecut Machine, Cameo by Silhouette

The treasure box was cut using my Cameo. I thought it would make an interesting invitation and could double as a treat box. I used a lot of the foam squares to add extra dimension plus to secure the surfboard inside the treasure box.


Here is another angle of the Treasure Box. You can see how I used the iRock to glam it up!


I used my Cameo again to cut the name for the place card. It may not be obvious but I ended up cutting it out of the pretty packaging that the 3D embellishments were in. It was the perfect color and had a fun pattern to it. I love when I can repurpose items in my crafting.

The cupcake wrapper and topper were also cut using my Cameo. Then to bring it all together I added a lovely 3D sticker embellishment from the Making Waves collection. I think that this was my favorite part of the group. Too cute!!

Wow!! Thank you so much Christine!
That is one super fantastic party set!
We're already looking forward to seeing more of your work later this month.

*******
Giveaway!
We want to give away one of Christine's favorite Imaginisce tools today and that's the ....

i-Rock and accessories

To be entered into the Giveaway all you have to do is leave a comment on this post today and then head on over to Christine's blog, become a follower of her blog and leave her a comment there letting her know how much you've enjoyed her work.
(winner will be announced this Friday)

1 Product 2 ways


We challenged our designers to use the i-top punches
in 2 different ways and create 2 projects in the process.

Today, designer Tiffany Hood will be sharing some terrific projects with us.
She came up with some fabulous & creative ideas so let's check them out!

*******

The I-Top punches are so versatile. Not only can you use them for making items for the I-Top, but you can also use them alone to make flowers, suns, gears, and other shapes for your projects.


Project #1
Here I used a punch to make the sun on this party invitation card.

I also used the punch to make the center of the sun using a 16mm brad daddy.


Project #2
On this card I used all four sizes of punches to create 3D flowers.

By using several sizes, you get the effect of a real flower.

********
Here's a quick tutorial to show you how you can make these flowers at home.


1. First, cut a straight line between two of the "petals" in the shape to the center of the "flower".

2. Place a strong adhesive like Sticky Strip or Tacky Tape on a petal next to the cut line.

3. Overlap two or more "petals" and adhere. Overlapping them gives the 3D effect.

4. Now your shape is starting to look like a flower

5. To add some more dimension to the flower, you can ink the edges to make them stand out

Repeat the process with more sizes, and layer several flowers on top of each other with the smaller sizes toward the top.
Punch a 16mm shape to use as the flower's center using a small brad daddy.

*******
Thanks so much Tiffany! Those are gorgeous cards.

Now don't forget ... we would love to see what you create and we want to challenge you to create something using the i-top punches in different ways. Then feel free to share your project with us on our Facebook page. We'd love to see it!

i-Space with Mary Ann

We're thrilled to have one of our designers


share her beautiful scrapbook room with you today.
Take your time reading through this picture-filled post ... as there's lots to see!

Hello Imaginisce friends, I'm excited to be sharing with you where I play with paper and glue. My scrapbook studio is actually what use to be the formal dining room in our home. After my husband pointed out that the formal dining room was only used on holidays, and my scrapbook supplies are used every day, the decision to have my studio in there was an easy one!


I store my cricut machine and various punches in the baskets below in this cabinet.


Some of my favorite stamps are stored in this three-tiered basket.


Photo printer and scanner are on this cabinet, camera equipment is stored inside


Paints, mists, glitter and other mixed media supplies are all kept in the cabinet above the printer.


Next in the room is my computer desk. I have two monitors side by side which make surfing the web and photo editing so easy!


Beside my desk is a built in storage area with cabinets below, and nine cubes where I store albums that are currently in progress, cardstock, punches, alphabet stickers separated by color and other miscellaneous supplies.



This cabinet of small drawers is one of my favorite pieces in my studio, it stores my chipboard alphas separated by letter. In the left over drawers are chipboard pieces and extra adhesive.


Older patterned papers are stored in these two towers. I got them for free when a scrapbook store moved!


I keep embellishments in these baskets separated by theme.


I hang layouts before putting them into albums. This is a curtain rod mounted to the wall, then drapery rings to attach the layouts. I like being able to see the layouts before they are hidden away in albums.


The island/storage table is in the middle of the room and is 42" tall since I like to stand when I scrapbook. I have tall chairs for when friends come to crop.


My studio has two walls with windows. Natural lighting is perfect for scrapbooking although it's not always the best for taking pictures of the room ;)

My husband built everything in the studio except for the shelf unit that the embellishment baskets are in, and the 2 paper storage towers. I am so grateful he supports my hobby. Right now my patterned papers (the new stuff) is in the island, separated into Cropper Hopper paper holders, he's working on storage for them ;)

I hope you enjoyed this peek into my creative space, I love having my own little place where I play with paper and glue!

Everyday Inspiration


Good Monday Morning!!
We hope that you've been having an enjoyable Easter weekend.

We've got a post filled with so much inspiration today that you'll just have to grab that cup of coffee, pull up that chair and sit with us for a while!

ENJOY!!





"These chicks were quick and easy to make! Because my inspiration photo is of three chicks sporting bunny ears, I used three of the die-cut bunnies from the
Hippity Hop collection to mimic this.
Next, just punch a 2" circle from a piece of cardstock. Punch a small heart from an orange patterned paper for the beak and apply to the circle with a foam dot.

For the eyes, I used black glittered brads from some older Imaginisce stock, but you could use pom poms, i-rock gems, etc.

For the hats, I used the same 2" punch, but only punched about 1/3" of the way into the desired paper. Embellish with ribbon, glitter, flowers or whatever your heart desires!"
Supply List: Imaginisce (Hippity Hop & Makin' Waves patterned papers; Hippity Hop bunny die-cuts; glitter brads (these are from a few years back); carrot sticker and two small fabric covered Brad Daddies; I-magicut Ribbon cutter and i-top Tool; cardstock (Core'dinations); ribbon,Thickers; paint & computer generated font





"I love retro style decoration pieces and this candle votive is one of my favorite gifts from my son. I love the pattern and knew right away I would use it for my inspiration project.



I turned the pattern on it's side and created this fun Easter themed layout. I used photos and papers in place of the rectangle and hand-stitched around each of them to mimic the gold border on the votive. I completed my page by adding embellishments and a title."

Supplies: Imaginisce (Hippity Hop collection: papers, die-cuts, chipboard and canvas stickers; Makin' Waves paper); Thickers; mini-alpha stickers; embroidery floss; cardstock



Every year, the 2nd graders at the school my daughters attend get to grow a garden. I was lucky enough to volunteer in their garden the day they were harvesting carrots. It was great because some of the parents peeled and cleaned them and the students got to eat them for lunch. As I was looking for Spring gardening ideas, I came across these really fun little cookies, which look delicious but not as healthy as carrots. (source: Pinterest - http://familyfun.go.com/magazine/familyfun-magazine-archive/familyfun-april-2011/carrot-patch-cookies-998993/)


It inspired me to create this layout about gardening day. To make the layout, I used a photo corner punch to cut the different pieces that make up the large chevron, which is not only the latest trend but I see a resemblance in the photo above, in the wafers and grass covering. To make the photos pop, I added a layer of vellum. Then I added another layer of smaller chevron at the bottom by using a zig zag punch and laying the punched pieces over each other. For my title, I used a die cut from the Hippity Hop collection and made a large brad using the i-top 2.0 to place over the "O" in Grow.

Supply List: Imaginisce (Hippity Hop collection, twine (The Twinery); cardstock, vellum


*******

We hope that you've been inspired to look around you & see your surroundings in a different way. After all, that mug of coffee in your hand right now might be the inspiration you need to be creative today!

I-Magine That!


We're excited to bring to you our 2nd installment of our
I-Magine That! feature.

Today one of our designers, Ro Phillipsen, will be sharing an
awesome photo tutorial with you

*******

I love bows! I always use bows on my Projects because I think they

add an extra charm and beauty to my design.

I use different types of bows, from ribbon, and several models of paper!

So, today I would like to share with you how to make a beautiful paper bow for your Projects.


It's very easy, let's go!


Step 1 - Cut 4 strip of paper measuring 1 x 6 inch.



Step 2 - Fold each strip in half.



Step 3 - Fold the half of each strip to the opposite, and then adhere the end the backside of the loop where they meet.

Notice in the picture.



Step 4 - Do the same to all strips and this is what they should look like when you are done.


Step 5 - Glue one piece behind the other.


Step 6 - And now glue the two pieces together, like the image.



And below I would like to share two examples where I used the bow, I just taught.

The first one, a colorful and cheerful layout where the bow matched perfectly!



And second one, a Spring Card, with the cute bow.



Thank you so much Rosangela for this fabulous tutorial!

Aren't you just dying to try this out for youself?? I am!
Don't forget ... we'd love to see your projects so please feel free to share your work with us on our Facebook page or you can leave a link on this post.
We'd love to see your 'bows'!

Easter Cards


We're back again today with some delightful Easter card ideas.

I tell ya, these girls are so creative that it makes me want to sit down right now and make a card. We hope that you're inspired by these creations as much as we are!



"This Easter card is a tri-fold card that uses small brads made with the i-top and twine to close the front of the card. The papers are a mix from the Hippity Hop and Makin' Waves collections - both great collections for making bright and fun cards."


"To make this card, I layered a Punky Sprouts doily with some pretty and soft Imaginisce fabric flowers, and for even more texture, added the canvas sticker bunny. To finish off the card I added some flowers and even put one on the bunny, and then embellished those with some I-rock bling."


" 'Happy Easter everyone!' I made this cutesy card to share with you today. Anything that has a bunny in it is cute to me! I used Honey Bunny, Spring Showers, Bunny Day stickers from the Hippity Hop collection. I made the bow with Surf's Up from Makin' Waves Collection and Core'dinations cardstock for the base of my card."


"I had a lot of fun creating this card. I added the "thought balloon" so that the sweet little bunny could be dreaming of a nice, juicy carrot! I used Hippity Hop die-cuts and chipboard stickers, the i-rock and paper from Makin' Waves."


"I wanted a 3-D look for this card, so I cut my stamped image into a circle and then made the circle a little larger for the mat. The mat was then layered over the image using foam dots. To create the button border, just determine how many buttons will fill in neatly between the Brad Daddies; hand-stitch or glue them into place. I also stamped the bird image twice; the second bird was added with foam dots."

Easter Projects

Thanks for joining us again today.
We've got some incredible easter themed projects to share with you so let's get started.



"I love all the cute Easter die-cuts in the Hippity Hop collection and thought they would be perfect as ornaments on an Easter Tree! I was lucky to find the wire tree already in a clay pot, but it could easily be made by cutting a tree branch, spray painting it white, then adding it to your own clay pot. I painted the pot a pretty shade of pink and added a border I punched from patterned paper. Next I glued the largest bunny die cut to the front of the pot. For the grass I cut green cardstock into narrow strips and crumpled it up just a bit to give it some dimension, and added it around the tree."

"For the sweet little ornaments, I added loops of twine to various Hippity Hop die cuts and hung them on the branches. I glued a few of the flower die cuts directly to the branches, and also added some glam rocks to the branches for a bit of bling. Our Easter Tree looks so cute sitting on our table, waiting for the Easter Bunny's arrival!"



"I wanted to make a little surprise for my girls on Easter day and the little peeps kept coming to mind because my girls love marshmallows so I am sure they will love sugar coated marshmallows! To make their goody boxes, I cut a heart-adorned box from my Cricut using the Boxes and Tags cartridge and cut it to fill the page. I then decorated the outside by stacking various papers from the Hippity Hop collection and flowers, tying it all together with ribbon. I removed the little bunny from one of the sticker stackers journaling cards and it’s the perfect accent to complete the box."

"On the inside is a little peep sitting atop green paper strips to resemble grass . The paper was green on one side and had a pattern of various colors on white background on the 2nd side. I misted the white side with green mist and then cut little strips to make the grass."




"For this project I used a leftover piece of cardboard from a box. It was perforated and a little shorter on one end. I used that to my advantage by tearing it away to make that look like "grass". "

"I base coat painted with white and then added some coordinating green to accent the spring colors in the Hippity Hop line. Some packaging was upcycled for my Hippity Hop sentiment mat.
This is a fun little sign that we can put out for the boys. I used a paint stir stick as my sign post."



"I did these Easter cones using birthday hats as a template. I open de hat and draw it at a scrapbook paper, then I cut out as the mold, and to stand firm, I glued it over the original hat, and closing it again. Then I decorated the cone, and filled it with goodies for Easter. It can be hung anywhere, like on the door handle, on Easter tree(if you got one), or in the garden ..."

Easter Layouts

With the Easter holiday quickly approaching we thought it would be fun to share some Easter ideas with you.

Today a few of our Design Team members would like to share some Easter themed layouts to help inspire you & give you ideas on how to use your Easter photos (ie. coloring eggs, easter baking, egg hunting, easter services, etc.)



"My Easter layout includes mostly papers and die-cuts from the Hippity Hop collection, but I added a few Makin' Waves papers also. Just a simple sketch layout with lots of spring friends, bloom and doodles surrounding this sweet Easter portrait of my niece."




"For my easter layout, I used the Hippity Hop line (of course) and punched large circles of various patterns as my background. I wanted to take the 'egg' theme even further so I drew and cut out a large egg shape for my photos, journaling and title to sit on. To make the large egg stand our a bit more, I hand stitched around the outside. I used the metal i-rocks sprinkled here & there to mimic eggs hidden around the house."




"When creating themed layouts, I love making little scenes. What I really love about the Hippity Hop collection is that it is perfect for creating cute scenes. With the help of my Silhouette and the Hippity Hop collection I made this fun Easter layout to treasure for many years to come."



"I really wanted to scrapbook these photos of our yummy Easter cupcakes and when I found the bird themed papers and embellishments in the Hippity Hop collection I just knew that they would be perfect for these pictures (and of course my yummy treats - Mini Eggs!)"



"I used the darling Hippity Hop collection to create a layout about an Easter when my kids were younger. I love the colors and the die-cuts in this collection. I also used some Core'dinatnions cardstock for some additional embellishments."
