Tool Extravaganza - Abby

Well, we've reached the last day of our Tool Extravaganza monthly feature! And we want to thank you for your amazing support and the beautiful comments that you've all left us.

Today we have Abby Laubenstein sharing some projects with us. She used the i-Bond in such creative & fun ways.
Let's take a look!

*******

As soon as I received the Imaginisce i-bond, I was in love. Not only is it super comfortable in my hand, but also cordless. Yes, please!

I made a votive and used the i-bond to create a swirly design. I found a drinking glass at a rummage sale for 10 cents, then used my i-rock template and a marker to stencil the design on the glass. I then followed the dots with my i-bond.


After the glue cooled, I spray painted the entire glass. You could surely add ribbons and such if you prefer, but I chose to go clean and simple. I've tested my candle for a couple hours and the glue will not melt as the candle is burning. Score! :)


Supplies- Imaginisce: i-bond, i-bond glue sticks, i-rock stencil kit. Other- Spray paint, glass, marker.


I also made a fun headband created with globs of glue! I used the i-bond and Imaginisce glitter glue sticks (love those!) to make round shapes onto wax paper. They almost look like little gems or stones. So sparkly!

Then I used the i-bond to adhere them onto an Imaginisce i-top headband. I love how this turned out! It's simple to create, yet super cute!


Supplies- Imaginisce: i-bond, i-bond glitter glue sticks, i-top twist headband. Other- waxed paper

It's been an exciting month full of incredible ideas and fabulous projects using the Imaginisce tools.

Tool Extravaganza - Cari


Well, we're almost finished our Tool Extravanga. Only 2 more days and then we'll be announcing some lucky winners.

*******
Today we have Cari Locken sharing some projects that she made using the super fun i-rock tool.
Hi everyone!
My first project is a simple card. I wanted to show how you can dress up a simply designed card by using the Imaginisce i-rock tool, an i-rock stencil (Bracket & Border), pink jewel tray and some Hot Rocks (Glitter).

I first of all cut my card base to size.
Then I took one of the i-rock stencils, placed it over my card and used a pencil to lightly mark the stencil design.

I then choose my colors of Hot Rocks - not sure if you can tell but I tried to make it resemble a cupcake top ... a wee bit. :)

I also used the i-rock tool to make the twine curly.
All you need to do is carefully wrap the twine around the tip of the i-rock tool and hold for a few seconds (while the tool is on & hot). Then release the twine and it will be have a spiral shape! Super fun (just be careful to not burn your fingers!!)
Here's my finished card.
Supplies: Imaginisce (Hello Cupcake: papers, canvas stickers; I-rock tool, Glitter Hot Rocks, Pink Gem Tray; foam squares); Core'dinations Colorcore Cardstock, The Twinery (green twine)

*******

My second project today is an altered one.
My daughter & I were shopping one day at the mall and she saw this hairbrush all blinged out! She asked me if I could do that to her hairbrush and I thought "Sure!! Why not!"

So I took her hairbrush, sanded the top part to rough up the smooth surface in order for the rhinestones to adhere better.
I then took a stencil (with a flower shape) and used a marker to outline the shape.
I used purple jewels for the basic flower shape.

I completed the rest of the hairbrush using the clear Hot Rocks.

Supplies: Imaginisce (I-rock tool, Hot Rocks (Clear, purple, pink, and turquoise); Other: Hairbrush, sanding block

Thanks for stopping by today and we hope to see you back tomorrow!

Tool Extravaganza - Regina

Welcome back to our final week of our month-long feature Tool Extravaganza!!
That's right. Only a few more days left and then we'll be announcing 3 lucky winners!!!

*******
Today we have Regina Mangum sharing her talents with us
using the Clicut.



JOYRIDE LAYOUT

I love to cut things out, especially very finely detailed images and I also love a straight edge! I knew I wanted to showcase my all-time favorite hobby blade: The Clicut Retractable Pen Knife. (To be fair, I'm also showing off the ever-cool i-Mat 8 x 8 Self-healing Mat!)

I wanted to do something special with the photo of my little rugrat having the time of his life on a train ride and decided to create a woven photo.


A. Print 2 copies of the same image, one in full color, the other in black & white.
B. My photo is a 5 x 7. The smaller the photo, the tricker the weave as photo paper is thick. This size worked well.
C. Trim one photo horizontally.
D. Trim second photo vertically.
E. Weave strips as you would a basket. Don't worry if you are left with a crazy looking shape as you try to line up the image.
F. Crop and trim the woven image and mat with cardstock.

Supplies list:

Patterned Paper: Bon Voyage Collection; Autumn Splendor Collection (Imaginisce)

Stamps: Just the Ticket sentiment (PTI)

Cardstock: Brown textured (American Crafts); Very Vanilla, Basic Grey, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake (Stampin' Up!)

Fibers: Canvas Rope (Canvas Corp.)

Accents: Pinstripe Mister Huet (Studio Calico)

Dies: Train Tracks (Taylored Expressions); Pennants and Notebook (PTI); Studio Classic Dies (Lifestyle Crafts)


*******

PHOTO COASTERS

My next project is a set of colorful Photo Coasters. I used various patterned papers and added a few embellishments, being careful to keep things relatively flat, as these would be usable coasters. I also applied a self-adhesive laminate sheet (available at your local office supply store) and trimmed with the Clicut.


1. Trim patterned paper slightly larger than coaster.
2. Adhere coaster with strong adhesive.
3. Trim with Clicut around coaster.
4. Repeat with each coaster and also after applying laminate sheet.


Supplies List:

Patterned Paper: Makin' Waves Collection, Hippity Hop Collection, Hello Cupcake Collection (Imaginisce)

Stickers: Hello Cupcake, Makin' Waves, Hippity Hop (Imaginisce)

Cardstock: Tempting Turquoise, Pear Pizazz, Chocolate Chip; Pumpkin Pie (Stampin' Up!)

Accents: Mister Huey (Studio Calico)

Other: Self-Adhesive Laminating Sheets (Avery); Coasters (PTI)


*******

Well, it's Friday again and time to share what we've been seeing online.
Today we'd like to share two layouts that were created by ...


This first layout uses our new release Hello Cupcake. We like how Janna complimented the square chipboard piece with 2 additional square elements (one for journaling and one to add a sticker stacker to).


This second layout by Janna was created with our Makin' Waves collection.
Oh how I wish I was on the beach right now (as it's a dreary & rainy day today!)
Great use of the patterned papers Janna and again we like the way you've incorporated those square embellishments on your layout.
Congrats Janna on being spied!!

Tool Extravaganza - Heather


Our Design Team continue to inspire us with their talent and creativity!

Today we have Heather Leopard sharing some fabulous creations that she made using the cutting mat, Little Snips, i-rock Mini Iron and the i-top 2.0.

*******

No doubt about it, Imaginisce has some of the BEST tools on the market and I love that they are always adding to their collection. Way before I was an obsessed scrapbooker I would dabble with sewing, usually making outfits for my then toddler girl. I kind of got away from it as she got older so when we were asked to create anything we wanted using Imaginisce tools, I immediately gravitated to my fabric stash.

Cup Koozie
Down here in Texas we drink a lot of sweet tea. My family loves the sweet tea from our Keurig machine. We make it using their Brew over Ice cups, which look fine but I wanted to dress mine up a little so I made this cup koozie.


I cut the fabric using the new cutting mat. Have you seen the cool design of it? I also used the snippit scissors but the rotary cutter would work great too. I made a pattern, which can be downloaded from my blog, and cut the fabric. I cut two strips of fabric from the pattern and a third using felt for the inside. I also cut strips to use for ruffles on the top and bottom.
[insert fabric photos here]

Before I sewed it together, I covered a medium button daddy with coordinating fabric using my i-top 2.0. I hand stitched it to the fabric and then sewed the pattern and ruffles together, adding twine to the opposite end from the button.
Once it was all stitched together, I wrapped it around the cup, tying it around the button. My ice tea glass is not so boring anymore!


Bag Tags/Key Fobs
My original idea for this next project was to create a key fob for my keys but I just got back from a trip to London and realized I really needed a set of bag tags for my luggage. I’m sure you know all how hard it is to find your luggage when they all look alike. As I was creating mine it dawned on me that my girls could use new tags on their back packs so made them some as well.
To make these, I used the new cutting mat and snippits again. I simply cut different shapes from fabric and felt and cut out our initials. I stitched the initials to one side of the fabric before stitching it all together so that the outline of the initial would show on the back of the tag. I added the loop to the inside of the fabric and then stitched it all together.



Thanks for stopping by today.
Make sure to head over to my blog to download the cup koozie pattern and see some stepxstep photos.

Tool Extravaganza - Guiseppa


Welcome back for another awesome week of fabulous projects from our Design Team members using our innovative tools!


Today we have Guiseppa Gubler sharing a couple of projects that she created using the i-Magicut Ribbon Cutter & Sealer.
(You will notice on our website that we are also selling Replacement wires for this tool. They come in a separate package.)
Let me just tell you...I love the I-Magicut! I am so happy that I can create projects with ribbon and no longer worry about them fraying. Today, I have a couple of projects to share with you.

First off, I created this layout using a lot of ribbon...thanks to May Arts!

I have been wanting to create a layout like this for awhile. I simply used the I-Magicut to cut my ribbon, and then I adhered the ribbon to my layout and tied bows throughout the layout.

It was so easy and the cute little girl in my layout...she is one of the neighbor's twins that I am so lucky to get to watch. Isn't she cute?

Supplies: patterned paper, I-Magicut, flowers, I-Top and large I-Top brads- Imaginisce
cardstock- Bazzill Basic; ribbon- May Arts; letters- American Crafts



For the second project, I made these cute hair bows and the I-Magicut made it so easy. I am pretty sure that my cute, twin neighbors will be wearing these in their hair.

Supplies: I-Magicut and flowers- Imaginisce; brads - Fancy Pants

Tool Extravaganza - Shellye

Today Shellye McDaniel is going to share some projects that she made
using the i-rock Mini Iron.

To begin, using the grid on the mat, fold your ribbon to create 1" loops and iron into place, creating a crease. Create as many loops as needed to achieve the desired length. Add a small dab of fabric glue between the loop and the base of the ribbon to help keep in place. Using the Imagi-Cut create a dovetail at the ribbon ends by folding the ribbon in half and cutting/sealing.

Attach to the top of the headband (at both sides of the metal disc) with fabric glue.
For the large blossom I used four different white fabric flowers and two of the daisy shaped flowers for the base.

First, take each flower and fold in half; then fold in half again. Hand-sew or use a little fabric glue at the base of the flower to hold in place. Do the same with the other three flowers. Assemble the four by clustering together and then glue or sewing at the base. I snipped the tip off of the bottom so that the blossom would sit flat before attaching to one of the daisy shaped flowers with fabric glue. Allow to dry.

For the second daisy shaped flower, insert the hole of the flower over the metal hub of the headband. Using a strong glue (like E-6000) I attach the base of the blossom to the Twist Daddy and then screwed onto the headband. This could be modified somewhat, but was the best solution that I had to achieve the look that I wanted :)

TOOLS: Mini Iron, Imagi-Cut, Mat
SUPPLIES: Black Headband, Neautral Fabric Flowers, Large Twist Daddy
MISC: Grosgrain ribbon and fabric glue


Using the Mini Iron, fold ribbon and iron to create the perfect pleat! You could add as many of these ribbon streamers to your card as you'd like. The mini iron is perfect for those small items that need the attention of an iron...and don't forget, it will not only put the pleat in a ribbon, but it will take out the wrinkles in seconds!

TOOLS: Mini Iron
Other supplies: Hello Cupcake patterned papers and stickers.
Misc: baker's twine, button and 7/8" grosgrain ribbon

Tool Extravaganza - Ilene


We love the i-rock and today Ilene Tell is going to share some
creative projects with this tool.
When we were asked to create two projects using any Imaginisce tool, I decided it would be fun to the use I-Rock to make a couple masculine creations. When I think of the I-Rock, I always think of crystals and bling and pink, frilly things. But the I-Rock also comes with a lot of metal studs that you can buy to use it with - silver, gold, glittered metal, white, and many things in between. And I think the metal can add a very masculine touch to any project. They're also my favorite thing to use with the I-Rock because they actually heat up and set faster than the crystals - once I had the tool heated, I would literally hold it down for a couple seconds before moving on to the next stud. So even though you can see I used a lot of studs on both of my projects, once I had the studs placed where I wanted them, heat-setting them was actually a pretty quick step. And of course, Father's day is coming up, so I just had to make a card for my husband - this will be from myself and our two kids :)

Tool Extravaganza - Rhonda


Rhonda Van Ginkel is sharing her work with us today.
She used the d-stress tool on her fabulous projects.
For my first project, I used a plaque as the inspiration for my project. If you look at the design of it closely, you'll notice the inverted bevel edge makes creating the perfect cover for it a little tricky. What to do? I put the d-Stress tool to work for me!

I coated the top of the sign with a layer of Modge Podge, then applied a trimmed rectangle piece of Bon Voyage paper on top (right side up). Once I smoothed it out and allowed to dry a bit I then used my sanding tip to sand off the paper for the perfect custom fit!

Ingredients:
Bon Voyage Papers, Sticker Stackers and Die Cuts
Sign, KaiserCraft
Liquid Glue, Modge Podge
Chipboard Alphas, Colorbok
Inks, PowderPuff Chalk Inks, Quick Quotes
Diamond Stickles, Ranger


Project #2 is a layout inspired by Diana's awesome sketch for this month's challenge! I love the Hello Cupcake line and had the perfect Core'dinations cardstock that coordinates with the colors in the line.

Using that as my background paper, I debossed some lines into the cardstock using my scoreboard, my d-Stress tool and etching tip. You don't want to press hard for this technique, just let the tool guide you slowly to gently touch the top of the cardstock.

I then switched tips to my white sanding tip and ran it along the outside edges of my page. Finishing touches were some gem accents on my balloon, the cherry in the Happy Birthday chipboard and along the left edge and my circle using the template.

Ingredients:
Hello Cupcake pattern papers, sticker stackers and die cuts, Imaginisce
d-Stress Tool, Imaginisce
i-Rock, Imaginisce
i-Rock Frames Stencil, Imaginisce
Hot Rocks Compact - Crystal, Imaginisce
Hot Rocks Compact - Jewel, Imaginisce
Foam Tape, Imaginisce
Cardstock, Core'dinations
Black Cardstock, American Crafts
Round "seven" diecut, Jillibean Soup
PowderPuff Chalk Inks, Quick Quotes
Smooch Spritz
Twine, The Twinery
Other: Sewing Machine, Thread and Ribbon

I hope I've inspired you with a few different ways to use your d-Stress tool. I absolutely love it for my mini albums and altered projects!!!

Thanks!

Tool Extravaganza - Mary Ann


Welcome back to our second week of Tool Extravaganza!

Today we have Mary Ann Jenkins sharing some fun project
using the i-top punches!

One of my most favorite of the Imaginisce tools are the i-top punches. Although the punches were really made to punch paper to use with the i-top brads, I like using them just as they are. Combine that with a trend that is hot in paper crafting right now and you come up with a really fun banner!

Here is a banner I made to welcome summer using the extra large punch. School isn't out for us for another week, but I already have this hanging as we are counting down the days.

Supplies used: extra large i-top paper punch, papers - Surf's Up, Bloomin' Hot, Cheers!, Celebrate You, oversized die cuts,ribbon, alpha letters


For this sweet little card, I used the smallest i-top punch, folded each shape in half and strung on twine to make a mini banner.

Supplies used: small i-top paper punch, papers - Bloomin' Hot, Walking on Sunshine, Celebrate You, oversized die cuts, cardstock, twine, toothpick

Thanks for stopping by the Imaginisce blog for another day of our Tool Extravaganza!

Tool Extravaganza - Rebecca


Welcome to Day 4 of our ....

Rebecca Keppel will be sharing some projects that she made using the i-Magicut Ribbon Cutter.

*******

For my first layout I wanted to add lots of ribbon texture.

After adding lots of ribbon loops as a frame, I cut green polka dot ribbon on angles with the i-magicut and adhered them as a grassy base. Next I folded ribbon in half to make a small ribbon banner.

Supplies used: Imaginisce (Makin' Waves: patterned paper, die cuts, journaling stickers), I-Magicut Ribbon Cutter, I-rock and i-rock metal Glam Rocks, ribbon (American Crafts & Pebbles), Core'dinations Cardstock, Therm O Web Adhesive

For my second layout I again folded the ribbon in half to make large pennants.


Supplies used: Imaginisce (Hello Cupcake: patterned paper, die cuts, chipboard), Cardstock (Bazzill), ribbon (Pebbles), alphas (American Crafts)

That's a fabulous way to use ribbon on layouts. Thanks for the tips Rebecca!

Tool Extravaganza - Diana


We're back with Day 3 of our ...


Today Diana Fisher will be sharing some projects with us using the i-top punches.

*******

I used the i-top punches that are supposed to be used to cut papers that will be put on top of the metal pieces for the i-top. But these punches can do so much more! They cut in a fabulous splayed out circle that reminds me of sunshine bursts.

For the layout I used the small and medium punches. The cuts are mixed together and layered and then joined with a small brad to make an embellishment.

The small i-top punch was also added to make a border strip near the bottom, and then also a sun at the top of the page.

Supplies: Imaginisce (Hello Cupcake 6x6 paper pad, i-top small & medium punches, i-top, small brad daddy, Hello Cupcake die cuts, Hello Cupcake 3D stickers, Imaginisce i-rock LED lighted tweezers), white cardstock, yellow mist, alpha stickers


For the small box, I cut the box using the Cameo and Imaginisce papers. I used all 4 i-top punches for the embellishments on top of the box (small, medium, large and extra large). I then also used more small and medium punches to decorate the sides of the box.


Supplies: Imaginisce (Hello Cupcake patterned paper, i-top, small brad daddy, i-top punches (small, medium, large, extra large), Imaginisce i-rock LED lighted tweezers), twine, alpha stickers, Silhouette Cameo box pattern

Thanks Diana! That box is just adorable!

Tool Extravaganza - Tiffany

Welcome back to our ....

If you missed the intro yesterday to our monthly feature we'll just fill you quickly. Every day this next month each of our Designers will be sharing some projects with you that they've created using one of our Imaginisce tools.

You can CLICK HERE for more details.

Today we have Tiffany Hood sharing some stunning home decor projects that she created using i-top 2.o tool.


******

I absolutely love using the I-Top with fabric! It's so wonderful to be able to make custom buttons and other embellishments to match your sewing projects!

My daughter's room is bright pink and green, and I wanted to make a throw pillow to match her bedding. I used the I-Top Buttons here to make the centers of the flowers. How fun that all the patterns on the buttons can match the patterns in the pillow!


I also made a valance for my kitchen window.

I used the same fabric that I used in the valance to make matching buttons as additional embellishments.


Both projects used: i-top 2.0 tool, XL head set, 34 mm tracing template, and the 34mm (XL) button daddies

I have a full step-by-step photo tutorial on my blog today to show you how super simple it is to use fabric with the I-Top.


Wow! Tiffany those are gorgeous items! You're welcome to come and decorate my house anytime!

Tool Extravaganza!



This month we have an exciting line-up planned for you!!

Throughout the month of June we are going to focus on all of our innovative tools from the i-bond, i-rock to the i-top 2.0 tool.
If you're new to Imaginisce and haven't seen the variety of tools that we make we want to encourage you to check out our website HERE.

Each day a different designer from our Design Team will share 2 projects with you that they've created using one of our Imaginisce tools.
(as always we want to encourage you to check out their personal blogs as well because they will often share more detailed info/instructions/tutorials on their blogs regarding their projects.)

So to start off this Tool Extravaganza off we have Adora Concepcion sharing some beautiful projects with us today.

Take it away Adora!


Hello Imaginisce fans!!
Are you ready for another month of ideas and inspiration?!?! We are kicking off this month with the innovative Imaginisce tools.

I am so excited to share with you this first project I made.
I've always wanted to create one of these flower center piece. I think they're beautiful, the only thing that maybe stopping me is the thought of cutting and rolling all those paper flowers :).

But, guess what, the tool that I have chosen to feature is the Imaginisce Flower Roller - this is definitely a must have tool specially for all who loves handmade flowers. Beside this awesome tool, Imaginisce also makes the "Roly Rosies" - cut out and ready to roll and it comes in fabric and paper, how cool is that. With all the right tools, my project was completed in no time. :)


Supplies: Imaginisce Roly Rosies, Imaginisce Flower Roller, May Arts Ribbon, Spellbinder Die cutting Machine and die.

For my 2nd project I created this birthday layout. One thing about what I love about flowers is that you can use it on almost anything, and who does not like flowers, right!!! :)

I love texture and dimension on my page and with the rolled paper flowers I was able to achieve that on this layout, and of course the awesome Imaginisce "Hello Cupcake Collection" is the perfect paper for this.

Supplies: Imaginisce I-Top Tool, Imaginisce Hello Cupcake Collection, Imagninsce Medium and Large Brad Daddies.

Thank you so much for stopping by, and stay tuned for more..........

Thank you Adora! Those are gorgeous projects and a great way to showcase the Petal roller.
