But hold on.
We're not quite finished.

Can you say DELICIOUS?  That is what I thought when I received my Good Dog Collection.  I love the colors and the all of the chevron patterns are so fun, not to mention all of the other patterns too.  So, for my first project I made a layout featuring my brother-in-laws boxer Ryker.  I wanted to use a lot of the different patterned papers, so I did a lot of layering, making it possible for me to show off all the fun colors.  

"Fur-Ever Friends"

For the card I made, I cut this circle pattern from my Silhouette, once again showing off the fun colors of this collection.

I was so glad to see that Imaginisce had come out with a super fun dog line because our super fun dog, Holly Golightly, is a huge part of our family!  This line is perfect for capturing all of those canine moments.  :)

Supplies: Patterned Paper: Doggy Mail. Dog Dreams, Spotty Dog, Doggy Mail

Good Dog Release Party - Day 3

We're back with another day full of fun & inspiring projects using our new collection, 
Are you wishing you had a puppy yet?? 
Well you will after today!!

"Feed Me!"

I am a dog person so I love this fabulous canine collection! I also love all of the very cool patterns that makes for non-dog projects. I was so excited to get my hands on a collection for dogs because I have wanted to document the story about my dog carrying around a bag of doggie treats just waiting for us to give him some. He finally got some treats but not before hearing lots and lots of laughing from the whole family!!

Supply List:
Papers – Dog Parade, Doggy Mail, Dog Dreams, Dog Biscuits, Dawg Days, In the Dog House
Sticker Stackers – Doggy Diary
Die Cuts – Doggie Diecuts

"Happy Birthday/Make A Wish card & gift bag set"

With all of the bright happy colors in this collection I knew a birthday card and gift bag would look cute made from the papers. And of course I had to keep with the dog theme! I know there has to be a dog lover with an upcoming birthday who would appreciate this set.

Suppy List:
Papers – Dog Parade, Doggy Mail, Dog Dreams, Dog Biscuits, Dawg Days, In the Dog House, Paw Prints
Washi Tape – Stuck on You

"Woof, woof"

I love the bright colors of the pattern papers and with the solid paper colors, you don't even need cardstock! One of my favorite pieces of pattern paper are the strips. It has just a little bit of everything.

Pattern Paper, Stickers, Die Cuts: Imaginisce (Good Dog); Tools: Imaginisce (I-Rock, Glam Rocks Hearts), Sewing MachineFoam Adhesive: Imaginisce; Kraft Paper, Cardstock: Core'dinations; Border Punch: EK Success; Marker: Sakura Micron pen in black; Thread: Coats and Clark.


Marcia also created a fabulous card with this collection.

Pattern Paper, Stickers: Imaginisce (Good Dog); Tools: Sewing Machine Kraft Paper: Core'dinations; Border Punch, Die: Spellbinders; Thread: Coats and Clark; Ribbon: Prairie Bird Boutique (Etsy); Sentiment Stamp: Paper Smooches; Ink: Quick Quotes Powderpuff ink in Tahiti, Tsukineko StazOn black ink, dog bone paper clip.


Our dog Bauer is part of our family and I love scrapbooking photos of him just as much as my son!  I am so in love with the Good Dog collection!  There are so many amazing paper and embellishments to choose from!  I took this photo of Bauer out of one of our hikes and the colors of this paper collection really worked well with the colors in my photo.  I started off with the paw print stamp from the Good Dog collection to created a fun back ground on my layout.  I cut a verity of of other papers and gave them some detention with distressing, brown ink and some embossing.  If your a fan of chevrons this paper pack will be for you (even if you don't have a dog!), I made a cute little chevron brad with the itop!

Supplies: Good Dog Paper, Stickers, Stamp and Large Die Cuts, iTop, Twine, Foam tape, Brown Ink, Mist, Embossing folders Adhesive

I am always in need of little gift card holder and this little bag is for an up coming birthday party gift.  I started with a bright orange chevron bag and used part of the Good Dog die cut packaging (yup, the packaging is so cute your going to want to use it!) with little bones on it for a nice sturdy background.  I layered lots of stickers and dies and then topped it off by tying a bow at the top to keep the bag sealed.  I also have a little gift to wrap so I made this little tag to put on the box - simple and cute!

Supplies:  Good Dog Paper, Stickers, Large Dies, Ribbon, Adhesive

"Pawprints on my Heart"

I'll be honest ... I wasn't too sure what I was going to do with this collection because we have no pets whatsoever.  But I knew that with three kids there was definitely some way that I could play a 'twist' on this dog collection and create something that would work.

Supplies used: Imaginisce (Good Dog: patterned papers, die-cuts, sticker stackers; foam squares/tape)
Other: The Twinery (twine)


So are you ready to get that puppy yet??

Good Dog Release Party - Day 2

So wouldn't you agree that this collection, Good Dog,  is adorable??

We've got another day full of inspiration and projects to share with you.

To start us off is ....

"Fur Ever"

This collection is so cute, perfect for the fur babies in your house.  I wanted to make a little photo holder for this sweet photo of my friends dog Gadget.  I started with a giant clothes pin and covered it with patterned paper.  I added a banner shape and cute sticker to the centre of the clothes pin.  For additional embellishments I cut out some little paw prints and used foam tape to attach them.  To finish off the holder I added some coordinating twine.

Supply List: Patterned Paper, Stickers and Letters - Imaginisce Good Dog Collection, Giant Clothes Pin - Michaels, Twine - Doodlebug and My Minds Eye

"I love Dogs Leash Hook"

What dog doesn’t need their own special place to hang their leash and doggie bags?  To create this Dog Leash Hook I covered some heavy clipboard wood with patterned paper and added some hooks.  I used all the fun sticker, chipboard and die cut embellishments that come in this collection, I especially loved the dog bone so I added it with some foam tape to give the project some dimension.

Supply List: Patterned Paper, Die Cuts, Chipboard and Stickers - Imaginisce Good Dog Collection, Clipboard Wood Cover and Hang-It-Alls - Zutter Innovative Products, Ribbon - A Muse, Twine - My Minds Eye, Jillibean Soup and Doodlebug


What a fun collection! I love the versatility of the paper. If you don't have a dog, no problem!!! It can be used on everything. I created this layout of my niece Audrianna and Lucy! 

Supplies used: the "Dog Parade Paper" as the base of my layout;  I used "Dog speak Paper" to create a straight banner on top of the layout and to layer the photo; then embellished the page with"Doggie Diecuts.

"I Love Lucy"

Everybody loves our Lucy. she is the best pug for us and she is crazy cute! :) I love the "Paw Print Paper"and used it as the base of my layout. I tried to go easy on embellisments to show more of the paper. 

Supplies used: "Dog Biscuit Paper",  "Dog Parade Paper", "I Heart Dogs Snag'em Stamp and "Doggie Diecuts"

Other supplies used are; Martha Steward Punch and Accent Scrapbooking Buttons.

"Good Dog"
My son is an absolute DOG LOVER.  This collection is made for him and his furry friends.  The adorable Good Dog Collection is perfect for bringing your love for dogs center stage.    The paper and embellishments made it so easy to create this layout.  All the colors and patterned paper coordinate so well together.  And the Doggie Die Cuts are the CUTEST!  I layered several patterned papers together to create the base of the layout.  I love creating my own embellishments so I hand cut and matted the dog bone for an oversized embellishment to balance the 5”x7” photo I used.  I made a dog tag for  journaling with the Diary Sticker Stacker and ribbon.  I also hand cut the hearts that I placed throughout the page, giving them dimension with foam tape and rhinestones. 

Supplies used: Patterned Paper:  Dog Parade, Dog Speak, Dawg Dayz, Spotty Dog, Dog Dreams.  Doggy Die Cuts, Doggy Diary Sticker Stacker.   Rhinestones, Blue Ribbon.  Tools:  I-Rock, I-Punch, I-magicut Ribbon Cutter, Foam Tape.

Good Dog Mini Album
As soon as I saw the fun designs in the Good Dog collection I knew there was a mini album in my future! The idea for the shape of the pages came from the collection itself:  The heart, dog bone, food  bowl and dog house pages were all drawn and hand cut to mimic the smaller shapes found on the papers and embellishments.  I wanted each page to be a different shape so that it would catch your eye without even opening the album.  In a mini album it is sometimes tough to make space for journaling.  In this album I used the Doggy Mail cutouts and made them their own page in the album so that there was plenty of room for journaling.

Supplies used: Patterned Paper:  Dog Parade, Doggy Mail, Dog Speak, Dog Dreams, Dog Biscuits, Dawg Dayz, Spotty Dog, In the Dog House, Paw Prints.
Fur-Ever Friends Sticker Stackers, Doggy Diary Sticker Stacker, Doggy Die Cuts.


While I don't have a dog, we know many, many dog lovers and I was glad to see a collection with which I could create things for all my dog-crazy friends! For my first project, I created a Side Step card, to which I added the absolutely adorable Doggy Diecuts. The "I {Heart} Dogs" sentiment stamp was pretty perfect for this puppy and I know of several friends who will be delighted to receive this card!

Supplies used:
Patterned Paper: Dog Parade, Paw Prints, Dog Dreams from Good Dog Collection (Imaginisce); Stamps: I Heart Dogs Snag'em Stamp (Imaginisce); Cardstock: Crumb Cake (Stampin' Up!); Accents: Stickles (Ranger); Dies: Classic Circle, Scallop Circles (Spellbinders)

MAYA Accordion Frame

My brother-in-law and his wife own a basenji named Maya, who is a very sweet and energetic little dog. They love her and I thought I would put together a few of their favorite photos of her and create a little accordion frame to display on their mantle. The frame is just a piece of 8.5" x 11" cardstock scored in four equal parts and trimmed down to fit 1.75" square photos. I took apart some of the sweet little Doggie Diary Sticker Stacker stickers to embellish the frame and spelled out Maya's name using the bright and fun patterned paper from the collection.

Supplies used:
Patterned Paper: Paw Prints, Dog Parade, Dog Biscuits, Dawg Days, Dog Speak from Good Dog Collection (Imaginisce); Stickers: Doggie Diary Sticker Stackers (Imaginisce); Fibers: red twill ribbon (generic); Dies: Merry Alpha Dies (Lifestyle Crafts); Cardstock: Pacific Point, Real Red (Stampin' Up!); Accents: Stickles (Ranger)

Good Dog Release Party - Day 1

Welcome to Day One of our Release Party for the new collection, 
If you are a dog owner or dog lover than you are sure to love this collection.
The papers & embellishments are so fun and you are in for a week full of incredible inspiration from our Design Team.

So grab your cup of coffee 'cause it's a long one!
Let's get started today.


"Our Jippie"
When I saw how colorful this collection is I knew immediately which photo of our dog I wanted to use. This photo has been lying in my drawer for ages, but I never found the "just right" papers ... until now! The colors of Jippie's toy match the colors of this collection exactly! Do you want to know a fun detail? The toy was originally a present for my youngest son, then 2 years old, but as soon as Jippie saw the toy she grabbed it and wouldn't let go! Maybe she knew it was a toy made for dogs?

Supplies: Good Dog: Patterned Paper: Dog Parade (400098), Doggy Mail (400099), Speak Dog (400100), Dog Dreams (400101), Dawg Days (400103),  Paw Prints (400106); Sticker Stackers: Fur-ever Friends (400113); Other supplies: American Crafts: Cardstock and Thickers; Stamps: Studio Calico; Hemptique: Twine; Staples: misc. Tools: Big Shot diecutting machine; Dies: Joycrafts, Die-namics.

"Hello" card:
For my cards I always like to layer a lot of different papers on top of each other with the doily as the finishing touch. And I just had to add the chipboard sticker of the doggie ... isn't she the cutest?

Supplies: Good Dog: Patterned Paper: Doggy Mail (400099), Dog Dreams (400101), Spotty Dog (400104); Chipboard Stickers: Fluffy & Stuff (400115); Other supplies: American Crafts: Cardstock; Mini alpha stickers: My Little Shoebox; Pen: Stabilo; Doily: misc. Tools: Big Shot diecutting machine; Cuttlebug Embossing Folder.

"Puppy Love"

My family doesn't include a dog (much to my daughter's dismay) but that didn't exclude me from being able to use this collection! On a recent trip to Paris to visit my sister, her son provided me with the perfect opportunity to showcase some of the fun elements in "Good Dog".  Rather than journal in one of the journal spots, I fussy cut it providing a frame for my picture. The paws are jazzed up a touch to highlight the heart and the paw print is the perfect size to fit in a medium Brad Daddy.


Imaginisce Supplies:
Patterned Paper:  In the Dog House,, Dog Biscuits, Dog Dreams, Dog Parade, Doggy Mail
Doggie Diecuts, Fluffy & Stuffy Chipboard Stickers, i-Top and medium Brad Daddies
"Paw Prints on My Heart"

I love the interchangeability of Imaginisce stickers. You can pull them apart, rearrange them, use it as is. They are so diverse in their uses. Here the pawprint is left as is while the dog dish and dog are the popped elements with the "background" left for another use. I couldn't resist putting a welcome sign on the dog house door!

Imaginisce Suppies:
Patterned Paper: Dawg Days, In the Dog House, Dog Parade, Dog Biscuits, Paw Prints, Doggy Mail
Sticker Stackers: Fur-ever Friends, Doggy Diary
Doggie Diecuts, i-Rock and Glam Rocks

"Hello Miss Lucy"

Our family loves dogs.  The newest addition to our family is Lucy. She is an English Cream Golden Retriever.  The Good Dog collection was THE perfect collection to use for Lucy's Welcome home photo.  This paper is just so much fun. The designs for the paper are just incredible and I am in love with the embellishments.  For this layout I went a little crazy and used almost all of the papers in this collection.  I just kept layering the papers because they are just so awesome. 

paper- Imaginsice Good Dog
chipboard- Imaginisce Good Dog
Stickers- Imaginisce Good Dog
Die Cuts- Imaginisce Good Dog
buttons- personal stash
mist- studio calico
tools- I top (small and medium brads), I top punches, Silhouette (title)
adhesive- Imaginisce foam tape

Treat Bag

So many of our friends have Fur Babies.  Whenever we go to someone's house I like to have a little treat for the four legged friends. This little Treat Bag is just perfect to bring a couple of milk bones and it looks just so darn cute.  To make this bag I used my Silhouette and cut the template out.  I then used some clear acetate packaging from the die cut shapes and cut it to fit the window ( I am a very frugal scrapper and I always use every part of the product- even the packaging!).  Next I adhered the bag together with my I Bond.  This way I know the bag will not come apart.  Finally I embellished the bag.  I can't wait to bring this little treat to our friend's house!

paper- Imaginsice Good Dog
Die Cuts- Good Dog
Stamps- Imaginisce Snag'em Good Gog
ink- Jenni Bowlin inks
Twine- personal stash
Tools- I Bond, Silhouette 


When I cut out my template for my Treat Bag, I was left with a cool die cut piece where the window goes.   I never like to throw any paper away so I decided to use this great piece and make a tag. I made another die cut slightly larger to create a layered tag.  I then used my Snag'Ems and stamped my sentiment.  I then then stamped the image again on some white cardstock in red ink and cut it out and layered it on top so that the read heart would stand out.  Finally I had to bling it up just a bit and added some red hearts using my I Rock.

paper-Imaginisce Good Dog
Stamps- Imaginisce Snag'Em Good Dog
Ink- Hero Arts, Jenni Bowlin
Tools- I Rock ( Glam Rocks)
Twine- Personal Stash 

"Paw Prints On My Heart"

Designer Tip:  When cutting a mat for your photo, add a v-cut on one side to create a large banner.  You can also layer different sized banners for a dramatic effect.   Look for small images on the patterned paper that you are using.  Use the i-top to create your own personalized brad that matches perfectly with your layout!

Supplies Used: Good Dog Collection-Speak Dog, Dog Parade, Dog Biscuits, Dawg days,Paw Prints, Dog Dreams ; Doggie Diecuts; Fur-ever Friends Sticker Stackers; Doggy Diary Sticker Stackers;  i-top, Small Paper Punch, Small Brad Daddies.  Twine from The Twinery

Other Supplies:  Googly Eye, Heart Confetti Punch, Heart Punches of various sizes.  

"Fur-Ever Friends"

Designer Tip:  I really liked the heart shape of the Snag-em Stamp: I Heart Dogs.  You can ink only the image you want on the stamp if you don't want the entire stamp image on your project.  I used the stamped the heart image on top of the teal side of the Paw Prints paper. I then used my circle punch and punched each heart out. I layered small punched out hearts on top of the stamped image.

Supplies Used: Good Dog Collection- Speak Dog, Dog Parade, Doggy Mall, Paw Prints, Dog Dreams; Doggie Die Cuts, Doggy Diary Sticker Stackers, I Heart Dogs Snag-em Stamp; i-rock, Glam Rocks-hearts

Other Supplies: Twine from the Twinery; Signo Pen, Ranger Industries Ink., Circle punches, Heart punch

Childhood Memories Release Party - Day 5

Welcome to our final day of the Release Party for

Have you been inspired by all the beautiful projects?
We've got a few more amazing creations to share with you today so we're glad you stopped by.

Let's take a look at what the rest of our Design Team has created.

"Sk8r Boy"

I love the fun colors and patterns in the Childhood Memories collection and wanted to show them all off.  I cut the chevron file with my Silhouette and filled in the spaces with all the colors of the patterned papers.  I used the cut out parts to create some more arrows to lead the eye to the photo of my son skateboarding and also some fun confetti down the left side of the page.   I also really love the 3D stickers that come with this collection, perfect for my son who is always riding some wheels or another, like his skateboard, scooter or bike.

Supply List: Patterned Paper, Stickers and Letters - Imaginisce Childhood Collection, Die Cut Machine - Silhouette Cameo, File - Loni Stevens and Daniella Dobson

"Good Times"

The camera paper, stamps, stickers and chipboard in this collection are so perfect for a little Instagram mini album.  To create this mini album I made the cover out of patterned paper and added the cute camera sticker to the cover with a Polaroid frame around it.  For the inside pages I used patterned paper and embellished them with the stickers and stamps.   The theme of this collection is great for documenting all the fun times that kids have while growing up.

Supply List: Patterned Paper, Stamps, Stickers, Chipboard - Imaginisce Childhood Memories Collection, Cardstock - Bazzill Basics, Twine - Doodlebug and DivineTwine, Ink - Versafine, Silhouette Cameo, File - Daniella Dobson

"Miles of Smiles"

This collection is just so fun & delightful that I dug through my photos from a few years back and used these photos of my kids having so much fun at the park. I love all the alpha stickers because I like using a variety when I create my titles. 

Imaginisce: Childhood Memories (patterned papers, chipboard stickers, ABC alpha stickers stickers); foam tape; i-rock tool, red Glam Rocks
Core'dinations Colorcore Cardstock
The Twinery (twine)

"New Wheels"

I adore the bicycle design in this new collection and I knew right away that I wanted to scrapbook pictures of my daughter with her new bicycle. I played along with the theme of wheels by punching a variety of circles from different sized punches and papers.

Imaginisce: Childhood Memories (patterned papers, chipboard stickers, sticker stackers, ABC alpha stickers, i-rock tool, red, blue & Green Glam Rocks
Fiskars punches & Border punches
Core'dinations Colorcore Cardstock

"The Tongue Trap"

Losing teeth is a HUGE part of being a kid and I knew that I had to document that big event for at least one of my kiddos using this fun collection. My youngest is quite a turkey at times and was having a bit of fun with the missing space at the top part of his mouth.  Glad I had my camera close by to snap some pics.

Imaginisce: Childhood Memories (Patterned papers, sticker stackers, stickers, ABC Alpha stickers)
May Arts ribbon
The Twinery (turquoise twine)

"Look at the Simpsons"

I really love the alphabet stickers that are included in this collection and I wanted to use as much of them as possible. So I came up with a large title that went all across my page. For a whimsical touch I used different fonts for different words and in the last word I even used two different fonts. I really love how this turned out.

Childhood Memories: Patterned Paper: Memory Lane (400117), Care Free (400118), Fruit Stripe (400119); Sticker Sheets: Just Be Little (400126), ABC Stickers (400127); Sticker Stackers: Kid's Stuff (400134). Other supplies: American Crafts Cardstock. Tools: Silhouette Cameo and sewing machine.

"Love Life"

I so love this collection with the vibrant colors and fun designs! Just perfect for these photos of my youngest son and his best friend at the fair!
I don't know why but I just can't do "white" spaces. I just have to add something to that space, sometimes I mist the background a little but in this case I punched a few different sized circles from a sheet exactly the same as my background paper (Tree House) and using some foam adhesive I adhered these randomly to my page.

Childhood Memories: Patterned Paper: Memory Lane (400117), Care Free (400118), Fruit Stripe (400119), Day in the Life (400120), Hop Scotch (400121), Snapshots (400122), Play All Day (400123), Tree House (400125); Sticker Sheets: Just Be Little (400126); Sticker Stackers: Kid's Stuff (400134). Other supplies: My Mind's Eye and October Afternoon Washi Tape, Scrapbook Adhesives Foam Adhesive; Tools: Silhouette Cameo, Martha Stewart circle punches and sewing machine.

Childhood Memories Release Party - Day 4

Well, we've had three days of amazing inspiration from our Design Team!
Are you ready for more?
We sure hope so because we still have many more incredible projects to share with you.

So let's get started with our Day 4 of our Release Party for

"Just Scootin'"

I absolutely LOVE the bright colors and playfulness of this line! I could do childhood layouts forever with this collection. In addition to the versatility of these papers and embellishments, the fonts really grabbed me. (I have a SMALL font problem.) I really wanted the title to mimic the fonts used in the stickers and was able to create that for my Silhouette. The Scootin' part just didn't stand out on the busy background so I had to amend plan A - happens to the best of us! Feel free to swing by my blog for the cut file download.

Patterned Paper: Care Free, Fruit Stripe, Play All Day, Tree House, Wonder
Sticker Sheet: Just Be Little
Sticker Stackers: Kid's Stuff
Chipboard Stickers: Hide&Seek


The first thing that captivated my attention about the Childhood Memories line was the bubble theme! Though they were taken over 4 years ago, I knew immediately the pictures I wanted to use. The Bubble stamp is the perfect compliment for a subtle texture to the background - look closely, it's easy to miss. The Hot Rocks as complimentary bubbles just finish off the layout superbly!

Patterned Paper: Wonder, Memory Lane, Care Free
Sticker Sheet: Just Be Little, ABC Stickers
Sticker Stackers: Kid's Stuff, This Moment
Hot Rocks

Stamp: Bubbles


This collection lives up to it's name, "Childhood Memories". Fun and colorful,  I specially love the stickers on this kit. This is a layout of my son, Miguel  and niece , Malayah being happy and carefree.

"Hello Spring"

I love the bright colors and fun designs in this collections. It's perfect for those pictures I have of my kids playing outside. I especially love the Polaroid cameras in this collection, so I decided to frame one of my photos to make it look like a Polaroid ...

Childhood Memories Release Party - Day 3

Welcome back to Day 3 of our Release Party for

We've got another day filled with amazing projects!


Childhood Memories is such an awesome collection.  Having 2 boys we spend a lot of time outside and this collection is just perfect for scrapping all those wonderful memories.  The line is so versatile, fun and fresh.  I can't seem to put it down!

For my first project I made a layout.  I love to layer all my paper and this collection is just so perfect it.  I also like to use my pattern papers and turn them into embellishments.  I cut the clouds and camera out and turned them into embellishments and I also used my I-top with my pattern paper to make custom brads that coordinate perfectly.

"Just be Carefree"

This new collection Childhood Memories was so much fun to work with.  The bright colors and patterns are perfect to capture those fun play-time moments with your kids.  One of my kids’ favorite things to do is go to the park.  Their uninhibited actions portrayed in the photos inspired me to use the kite, clouds and make pinwheels for the layout.  All things that are fun and carefree, just like kids! 
My favorite part of this layout was making the pinwheels.  They are quick and easy to make and very cute.  Cut out or punch a square approx. 1- 1 1/2”.  At each corner, cut a diagonal slit towards the center.  Then fold each section towards the center and glue down to create the pinwheel.  I used the I-top to create the buttons in the center of the pinwheels and then the I-rock for a little bling!

"Our Bounce House"

My kids love their bounce house and I love to capture that fun in photos.  They are always so bright and fun, much like the Childhood Memories collection.  What’s fun about this layout?  The circles!  Various sizes all over the page, like bouncing balls out of the ball pit.  I had fun making the pennants out of the Giggles, Play and Carefree stickers from the Just Be Little Icons.  To embellish my circles, I used the balloons and bubble wand from the stickers stackers and the I-rock.

"Boys Rule"

Childhood memories in my family means little boys playing out in the hot summer sun up to son down!  These 3 cousins have the best time when they get together!  I took this photo of them the last time they got together and the Childhood Memories was a perfect collection to create with.  The sticker sheet was my favorite part of this collection, its full of unique pieces like the little Polaroid stickers!  I also used lots of foam tape and dots on this layout, a little dimension goes a long way!

Supplies:  Childhood Memories Paper & Stickers,  Foam Tape, Adhesive

"Baby Shower"

My second project is a little something to celebrate a very early on childhood memory!  I love the cloud boarder strip from the sticker sheet in this collection but I saw something besides just a strait line of clouds.  I cut it a part and used from tape to give it a lift.  Then I used the irock to add the hearts - the irock made these so easy!  Its a simple card but still cute!

Supplies:  Childhood Memories Paper & Stickers, irock, foam tape, adhesive

Childhood Memories Release Party - Day 1

Welcome to Day One of our Release Party for 

We're so excited to share with you this new collection.
The Design Team have been busy little bees and you are in for a treat this entire week!!

So let's not wait any longer to take a look at their incredible projects.
First off is ...


"It's the Special Little Moments"

The first thing I noticed about the Childhood Memories collection was the adorable hopscotch boards on the papers and stickers. I immediately thought about the day when the kids and I spent hours playing outside in the drive way riding bikes and playing hopscotch. For my layout, I cut out some of the Polaroid pics and the bicycle and used some pop dots to add some dimension. The B side of the papers are gorgeous and perfect for layering. These papers and stickers are the perfect way to document all of those special outdoor memories having fun whatever activities you and your kids love to do!

Supplies: Papers: Play All Day, Hop Scotch, Snapshots, Wonder, Fruit Strip, Memory Lane, Care FreeSticker Sheet: Just Be Little, ABC Sticker Stacker


I love the sweet little bicycle from the journal squares so I fussy cut it out because I wanted it to be the focal point of my card. The green and blue strips are cut from the border sheet and I layered the clouds to make them look fluffier. The hello title was cut using Silhouette Cameo.

Supplies: Papers: Play All Day Long, Memory Lane, Wonder, Care Free
Sticker Sheet: Just Be Little

I love scrapbooking little children, problem is, my kids are big.  So, when I received Childhood Memories I dug out pictures of my cute nieces and nephew.  I love the fun, bright colors of Childhood Memories and the cute designs found on the pattern papers.  They remind me of some of my favorite things as a child... bicycles, hopscotch, the giant slides that burned your buns as you slid down them and the good old Polaroid camera.  Now, I want to find all of my pictures of my nieces and nephews and get scrapping.  

"Camping Memories"

"Carefree Cousins"

Imaginisce Supplies: Childhood Memories Patterned Paper, Letter Stickers, and Sticker Stackers

"New PJ's are the Best"

Take the time to create layouts about the small stuff. We always think of birthdays and vacations, but even new pajamas are worthy of documentation. I remember how I felt as a kid to get new jammies, and I love that my son and I can share that. The Childhood Memories collection is perfect for indulging in documenting these small things that will most definitely want to be looked back on.

Supplies: Imaginisce - Childhood Memories (Pattern paper, Just be Little Icons, ABC Sticker Alphas, 3-D stickers), baker’s twine, white mist, white gel pen.


Kids cards are going to be  a breeze to make with the Childhood Memories collection. The playful bikes, trees and balloons make then a natural fit for those birthdays for the kiddos or those just young at heart.

Supplies: Imaginisce - Childhood Memories (Pattern paper, Just be Little Icons, 3-D stickers), baker’s twine, white gel pen.

After all of these stunning projects from our Design Team how could you not be inspired?
Would you like to win a package of this collection for yourself??

Well then, to be in the running for the prize all you have to do is leave a comment here on today's post telling us what you liked about today's projects.
One lucky winner will be selected at the end of the week.

(winner will be announced on Saturday, Jan. 19th.)

Re-introducing ....

We have a few more introductions to share today even though you already know these gals.

We're so happy to have them joining our team again this year and we're
eager to see what they'll create this year with Imaginisce!

Please help us welcome back these ladies!
First off is ....

"Usually, when I throw out my name Guiseppa, most people never forget who I am.  I think having a unique name has been fun and really helpful in many aspects of my life, including I said, most people never forget the name.  Some people also call me Seppa (its' just a little easier).  Anyway...I answer to both.  My name is originally Italian, but comes form a Danish grandmother.   

I have been scrapbooking for about 15 years now.  I jumped on the scrapbooking band wagon when it was so new, so I have seen a lot of changes in the industry.  I spend a lot of time scrapbooking (one of the benefits of having children in school all day).  I have now created over 70 albums since I began.   I have been married to my number one supporter Sam for 15 years and we have 3 children; Braden  age 15, Janica 13, and our little Angel Sterling passed away seven years ago from "The Bubble Boy Disease."  Never has scrapbooking meant so much to me as when he passed away.  I have all of those wonderful memories of him preserved through scrapbooking.  I like to think of myself as a clean scrapbooker, but I love dimension on my pages and find my self going through huge amounts of pop dots.  My layouts usually consist of clean lines, but I have been know to mess things up a bit.  I love dimension and layers.  I love to make my projects pop right off the page using embellishments.  I have been on multiple design teams and have been published in Creating keepsakes, Scrapbook Trends, Scrapbook and Cards Today, Memory Makers and Scrapbooks Etc.

When I am not scrapbooking, I enjoy spending time with my family.  You can often find us in the mountains camping, hiking, fishing and exploring on our 4 wheeler.  I also enjoy reading, traveling, ice cream, Mexican food and Diet Pepsi...mmmm :)"

Guiseppa created so many beautiful projects last year and we're overjoyed that she decided to stay on for another term.
You can see more of her work on her BLOG.

 We're also happy to welcome back ... 

After several years away from California, Regina Mangum now lives in beautiful San Francisco. She is mom to a sweet and spunky little boy who often appears in her projects and married to her college sweetheart. In her previous life, Regina worked as a book and food publicist. Regina became a serious papercrafter in 2009 and feels honored to have had her work appear in several publications, including Paper Crafts Magazine, Card Creations, and an upcoming issue of CARDS. A fan of all crafting styles, she thinks of her own as sometimes sweet, at times quirky, and often fun. Regina most enjoys creating cards, gifts, and layouts for family and friends and has yet to meet a piece of patterned paper she didn’t like.

Regina has such a creative style and creates the most wonderful cards.
To see more of her work you can check out her BLOG.

And last of all, we're so happy to welcome back our Design Team Coordinator ...

"Hi there! I'm honored that Imaginisce wanted me to hang around for another year.  This year has so many great things in store and I'm excited to be a part of it.
I've been scrapbooking since a young age but really got into this in 1997. I love creating projects and preserving my memories & those of my family. I've had the privilege of having my work published in numerous magazines such as BH&G Scrapbooks etc., Creating Keepsakes, Simple Scrapbooks, Paper Crafts Magazines, Card Creations, and Canadian Scrapbooker.  This creative outlet is often just a way for me to relax and have some quiet time.
I live in British Columbia with my husband and our three children. I enjoy crafts of all kinds, scrapbooking, photography, knitting, watching old movies, baking, and playing piano.
I'm excited about being a part of Imaginisce again for another year and look forward to getting to know the new team better."

To see more of Cari's work you can visit her BLOG.

We're thrilled to have these ladies joining our team again this year. 
Please give them a warm welcome back!

Join us again tomorrow for our i-Spy.

Re-Introducing ....

As of today you have met all of the 'new' members of the Imaginisce Design Team. 
Today, however, we'd like to re-introduce you to some familiar faces who are joining the DT again this year.

"Hi everyone, first of all I am super excited to be a part of Imaginisce team 
for a second term. Thank you!
Sharing a little bit about me, I am a serious scrapbooker,  I have been doing it for more tha a decade :). I consider my style as eclectic and a little bit on the simple side. While I have fun putting together a project, I also take my work seriously, I put my mind and my heart in everything I create. I am a photography enthusiast and the family designated photographer. And most importantly I am married with three children and a 7 year old grandson.
They are my scrapbook pages! I can't wait to start the new year, it's going to be an wesome 2013, God willing!!!"

Adora has a beautiful style and we're thrilled she's joining the team again.
To see more of Adora's work you can go to her BLOG.

We're also excited to welcome back ....

"Hi! I'm Diana Fisher and I'm so excited to have a second year with Imaginisce as a part of their Design Team. When I am not working with Imaginisce, I am also a part of the teams for Ormolu, Scrapbook Circle, Cocoa Daisy, Paper Issues and PaperHaus Magazine. Plenty to keep me busy!

When I'm not creating in my craft room, I spend my days as the publisher at NextStepU, an education media company that helps high school and college students find their next path. I've been with NextStepU for 11 years and get to work in graphic design, with printers, websites, sales teams and marketing plans.

My son, Nate, is often the subject of my layouts and he is our only child — except for a new puppy, Cady, that we added recently to our little family. My husband and I have been married for more than 8 years. He is incredibly supportive of both my job and my scrapbooking — I could not have asked for a better best friend!

I'm excited to be here for another year and am looking forward to working with the newest ladies on the team! Check out my blog, if you get a moment."

Diana has a beautiful classic style and we're always inspired by her creations.
Diana's BLOG will share more of her incredible talents.

Please give these ladies a warm welcome back to the team!

Introducing Suzanna Lee

Today we're excited to introduce you to ....

"I am Suzanna; jack of all trades and master juggler!! I scrap (paper and hybrid). I never leave home without a camera. I work part time as a Physical Therapist (largely to fund my scrappin' and photography addictions). I am Mum to the two of the most amazing kids (Nikolas and Mia) but I might be a bit biased! I have the most supportive husband who "aids and abets" in all realms of my life. I don't have one particular style of scrapbooking as I love to try new things; sometimes it's clean and simple, others it's more artsy and eclectic. I love to sew on my pages as sewing is another passion of mine. Geocaching, reading, and yoga feature highly in my life as well. I am a passionate person who is dedicated and committed; if there's a task to be done, I'll do it 105%!"

Here's a look at Suzanna's work.
To see more of her beautiful creations hop over to her BLOG.

Let's give Suzanna a warm welcome to the team!

Introducing Sara Zenger

Welcome back to another week of Design Team Introductions.

Today we're thrilled to welcome Sara to the 2013 team.

"My name is Sara Zenger.  I live in northern NY with my husband, our 8 yr old son and our boxer dog. 

I have loved taking photos and capturing my memories forever! I became addicted to scrapbooking and paper crafts about 9 years ago.  My go to stash of scrapbooking supplies include foam tape/ pop dots for dimension, white and craft colored cardstock because it goes with everything and punches because they work on every layout and every time you use them it can look unique!  

I love making layouts, cards and other paper craft projects.  I feel the need to make a new banner for each approaching holiday and I adore decorating my own gift bags! 

You can fine me on the Paper Issues Team, a Design Team member for PaperHaus Magazine, as a Designer for Scrapy Land,  and as the Head Coach and Owner at ScrapFIT.  Lastly, you and always join me at my blog,  I enjoy being a part of teams and online communities because I hope that somehow I can inspire someone to try something new and creative that they may never have thought of before - we all need inspiration from some place!"

Sara has a beautiful style and you can see more of her wonderful work on her BLOG.

We're looking forward to seeing more of Sara's fabulous creations this year!
Please give her a warm welcome!

Introducing Monique Liedtke

Today we'd like to introduce you to ....

"Hi, I’m Monique Liedtke and I live in The Netherlands with my husband, 3 kids (Manon 16, Timothy 13 and Mats 7) and our Cocker Spaniel, Jippie. I started scrapbooking about 9 years ago and am totally addicted, there’s nothing I’d rather do! I don’t have my own scrap room, but I guess you could say I claimed just about the whole house! I would love to spend every day scrapping from morning till night, but as that’s not possible I work part-time in a small HR office in town. 
The reasons I love this fabulous hobby are that I preserve our memories, that I’ve made so many new friends and that it helps clearing my head in my busy and hectic life: when I scrap I forget everything and anything. Bliss! 
My scrap pages are always full of colors and details. My favorite technique is sewing on my projects, both with the sewing machine and by hand. It doesn’t matter if it’s a layout, a card or a mini-album, without sewing, the project doesn’t feel “finished”. My favorite projects are mini-albums, but creating layouts is what I do most. If you want to see my projects, please visit my blog:
I’m thrilled to be on Imaginisce’s new design team!! It’s a dream come true!"

Monique's talents are quite evident in her beautiful designs.
To see more of her creations go to her BLOG.

Welcome to the team Monique.
We're thrilled to have you join Imaginisce!

Introducing Mary Pat Siehl

"My name is Mary Pat Siehl and I am an avid paper crafter. I am married to a wonderful man who totally supports my addiction to paper crafting. I have 2 children who keep me totally stocked in pictures for a lifetime. By day I am a high school teacher and I recently started my 24th year of teaching.  Wow, where does the time go?

I have been paper crafting for over 12 years. It truly is a passion of mine. I love all types of paper crafting- scrapbooking, card making, altered items, and home decor.  I would describe my style as clean and simple. This is not to say my style is boring at all. I love to layer all the different pattern papers along with using all different types of embellishments. 

I enjoy many other hobbies- tennis, reading, and hanging out with my 3 favorite guys!  I am so excited to be a part of this amazing team!"

Mary Pat's creations are wonderful and to see more
 of her work feel free to check out her BLOG.

Wonderful layouts Mary Pat.
We look forward to seeing more of work in 2013.

Introducing Marcia Dehn-Nix

"Hi, I am Marcia Dehn-Nix; I pronounce my name Mar-see-ah.  I am married to the most wonderful guy (29 years!) and we live in Minnesota. We have three kids; Naomi (23), Colette (20), and Trenton (18). All 3 are away at college! My husband and I are discovering what it is like to be empty nesters. I have been scrapbooking for about 15 years. My scrapbooking evolved out of a love for photography. In fact, I used to be a wedding photographer!  I did all the portrait sittings of my own kids at home using makeshift paper backdrops. This made for some fun times when I hauled in sand or fake snow! I also love to make cards, and knit, and sew.  I do have a 9-5 job working as a software engineer writing programs for electrical utilities. My creative side helps to balance the technical geeky side of me. My Dad says I am a magnet for strays. Currently in residence is the family dog Satchel, and 3 cats; Delta (a stray my hubby brought home from the airport on Christmas Eve), Spook, and Porch Kitty who has been with us about a month. She really needs a better name, but since she was confined to the porch while being de-wormed and de-flead that is what we are calling her. Not to worry, the kids will give her a better name when they come home for their winter break.
I am so excited to be a part of this awesome design team!"

Marcia has created some wonderful projects using the Birthday Bash collection.
To see more of Marcia's work you can check out her BLOG.

Thanks Marcia.
Beautiful work & welcome to the team!

Introducing Jennie McGarvey

Today we'd like to introduce you to another talented designer
who is new to our Imaginisce Design Team this year.

"I am a stay at home mom to 3 boys that keep me very busy!  They are involved in all kinds of activities (mainly sports) that keep me and the whole family very busy.  Since 1998 we've lived in 6 different states and we are not a military family!  We've been in Southern Indiana since last year when we moved from Southern California.

I've been scrapbooking since I was 12 after a trip to California, but in the current style since right before my eldest son was born in 2001.  In January of 2011 I decided to get involved online, add my projects to galleries and submit for publication.  I've been fortunate to have my projects published in Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbook Trends and Cards.  In addition to scrapbooking I enjoy reading and photography."

Here's a card that Jennie created for her DT submission. Isn't it so cheerful?

Introducing Jodi Wilton

"Hi everyone! I'm from Welland, Ontario, Canada, and I have been married to my husband for 9 years.  We have three amazing kiddos, that keep me on my toes- two girls (8 and 2) and one boy (6).  During the day, I run my own daycare from my home, and have the pleasure of "playing" all day!  At night, you can find me scrapping until the wee hours of the morning! I first starting scrapping in 1998, when I was working on a cruise ship, and I wanted a way to document my travels! I started a journal/trip diary/scrapbook.  My style has changed so much since then, and I find it continues to evolve with new techniques and trends! I describe my style today as being bright and cheery with clean lines, and hint of whimsy in there too! I am so grateful to be given this amazing opportunity to design for Imaginisce!"

Here's a little peek at Jodi's fabulous designs.
Make sure to pop over to Jodi's BLOG to see more of her lovely creations.

We love Jodi's designs & we're looking forward to seeing more projects with her adorable kids!

"Hi. I’m Fleur Smith. I live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada and have been married to a wonderful man, Michael, for over twenty one years. We have two amazing sons that keep me very busy and one crazy cat that makes us laugh every day.  I started Scrapbooking with the birth of my first son, over 13 years ago, and have been busy creating ever since. I also love taking photographs, traveling, reading and music. I do all of the above (especially Scrapbooking) whenever I can and you will usually find me at my designated scrap zone well past midnight. I have been published in several magazines including Paper Crafts Magazine, Create Magazine, Cards Magazine and Canadian Scrapbooker magazine. I am so excited to be a part of the Imaginisce design team."

Fleur has created some beautiful projects with Imaginisce.

Introducing Apryl Holland

Today we'd like to introduce you to ...

"Hi!  My name is Apryl Holland.  I am blessed with raising a beautiful family and enjoying the hustle and bustle of all that life brings.  I live in a friendly beach town in Southern California with my husband, two children Sydney & Von and our cute little min pin, Daisy Duke.  I began scrapbooking 15 years ago and can I just say “I love it!”  My paradise is escaping to my scrapbook room (the woman cave) in the attic J  putting on a good movie on Netflix and crafting to my heart’s content!  I also enjoy planning scrap retreats with my friend’s several times a year and the occasional Friday night crop at the local scrapbook store.  Any excuse, to scrapbook, I’m there ;)  I also enjoy cooking/baking, being silly with my kids, and just being me! "

Here's a look at some of Apryl's creations.

We're looking forward to seeing more of Apryl's work this coming year. You can learn more about Apryl by hopping over to her blog.

Introducing Aimee Kidd

We are so excited about our 2013 Design Team and we'd like to give you a chance to get to know them a little bit.  Throughout the month of January we will be introducing each designer to you and we hope that you'll pop on over to their blogs to learn a bit more about them.

To begin, we'd like to introduce you to ....

"Hi! I’m Aimee Kidd and I am 39 years young. I am happily married to the love of my life Chad and I’m blessed to be a stay-at-home mom to 3 awesome kids: Chris (18), Joshua (10), and Gracie (5).  I love scrapbooking because it is a stress reliever and a joy for me. Crafting makes me happy! When I’m not scrapbooking my other passions are photography, cooking, volunteering at my kid’s school and having lots of fun playing with my family. I am extremely happy and honored to have been chosen to design for Imaginisce!"

Here's a look at some of Aimee's work.
You can see more of her work on her blog as well.

Please join us in giving her a warm welcome to the team!
