D-stress it!!

When was the last time you distressed something?
Take a look at how Katrina used our D-stress tool on her fabulous layout!

D-Stress Your Layout

Wow!  Just blink and October is going to be gone!  Fall around here is all about football seasons and homecoming celebrations.  We attended a homecoming parade earlier in the month and being the Katrina that I am, I took along the camera.

I got these cute pictures of Bekah grabbing candy and filling the pockets of her sweatshirt.  I knew I had to scrap them and the Little Princess collection went great with her sweatshirt. 

And, I wanted to do something a little different that I hadn't done for awhile, which was distress most of my edges.  I got busy with the D-Stress Cordless and had a lot of fun.  I usually use scissors, but I always end up tearing my paper more than I want or just plain cutting it!  The D-Stress works great and you can do as much or as little as you want. 

Here is a section that has various degrees of edging.  The outside layer, I didn't do quite as much, as I wanted my layout to lay flat.  As I worked into the layers, I did a little more.  If you hold the tool in one place and add just a little pressure, you can create divots and more worn areas on your edge.  

And it does banner GREAT!  Loved that I kept the shape of my banner, while making my edges have more character!  And I added some of the Little Princess Bling Gems, because a candy layout needs some sparkle.

And I just had fun making a big title.  I die cut "candy" out of my teal layer and then backed it with the multi color polka dot paper in the collection.  To add some more fun, I die cut the word again out of a piece of 6 x 6 pattern paper.  I offset and popped those letters up, just to give a little more fun with the title. 

Thanks for stopping by the Imaginisce blog today.  If you would like to see another project using some of these same techniques that I have shown here, you can find a project on my personal blog Paper, Scissors and Glue HERE.

'Easy Going & Carefree'

We've got some great tools that make creating & embellishing your projects so much fun!!

"Easy Going & Carefree" layout

Imaginisce has an variety of tools. So, today I wanted to share with you a layout I made using two of my favorite ones; the I-Top and the I-Rock.

I love making my own flowers and I have always thought that the I-Top was the perfect tool to use to create flower centers.  I did that here, but I also used the I-Rock to adhere some Hot Rocks for my flower centers as well.  See the cute diamond shapes on my layout?  I used the I-Rock there as well and added more Hot Rocks.

Here are a few more close ups of my layout.

I hope you have enjoyed my project and if you already haven't, check out the Imaginisce tools and give them a try for your crafting projects.  Make sure you are checking the Imaginisce Blog all week to see all of the the design team's Imaginisce Tool projects!

Happy Birthday

This month we asked our design team to create a project of their choice using one of our collections and showcase one of the Imaginisce tools. We do hope that you've enjoying the creations shared on the blog so far this month.

Today we have Courtney sharing this darling birthday card - all 'blinged' out!!

Happy Birthday Card

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a fabulous fall! Court from Court’s Crafts here to give you some Little Princess inspiration! 

I made this for our Goddaughter’s 3rd birthday. She loves all things sparkly and she will love this!

I put the strips on a background layer and then die cut the stars out. I had intended to leave the back white but then really liked the faux embossing idea.

I thought they needed a little pop so I started to sew around the stars. I don’t mind that it’s not perfect. Like a friend of mine used to say, “If you wanted it to be perfect you would have bought it in the store."

So next time you want to add a little pizzaz, grab your i-rock and go to town!

Thanks for hanging out with me today and I hope you had a beautiful day!

Supply List:
Imaginisce: Patterned Papers (Little Princess 6x6 pad)
American Crafts: Cardstock White
Imaginisce: i-rock and jewels

Sweet Baby

Imaginisce has a great baby collection called "My Baby" - with colors that are perfect for both boys and girls!

"Sweet Baby" layout

I have three sons so there is always, always, more boy stuff for me to scrap.  Today I have a layout of my youngest son featuring the My Baby line and the Irock tool.

I love the blues in this line and decided to keep my focus there.  After layering some papers to matte the photo with, I went thru and used various pieces from the Die Cuts, 3D Stickers, and even the paper to embellish the layout.

My son's name is Boaz but we call him Bo for short.  I fussy cut the word "Bo" from "Boy" that was on some patterned paper.  Even though he is two years old now, this is the first time I thought to do that!  I think I will revisit that idea again with other little boy embellishments.

The Irock tool is perfect for adding little clusters of dots.  I love it because there is so much variety to the colors and textures that are available.  I went for a coordinating blue and rhinestone look on this.  It doesn't take long to add them and they definitely are not going to fall off.

I also did a cluster in the bottom corner between the various embellishments that come in the line.  Adding some wood veneer stars helps to balance out the sparkle and make it more masculine.  

Supplies Used:
Imaginisce: IRock Tool, IRock Gems, Patterned Paper, Die Cuts, Stickers
American Crafts: Cardstock, Twine

Little Princess Magnet Board
I love to have little premade gifts on hand for cousins and friends. I think that this magnet board will be a huge hit! 

I simply created a header out of patterned paper, gems, and diecuts. I then adhered it to the top of the piece of wood.

Then I added a few magnets made from patterned paper and i top magnet daddies.

I'm thrilled with how it turned out!
Thanks for visiting the Imaginisce blog.
