Birthday Calendar

Do you enjoy making cards for family birthdays, special events & milestones?  It can be overwhelming sometimes to remember all those dates but DT member Stephanie has created a fabulous & simple way to keep those dates in one handy place.

Hello! It's Stephanie and I hope your summer has been fantastic!! I don't know about you, but I have a whole lot of birthdays to remember, making it quite easy for me to forget to make a handmade card! So... I've got a crafty solution!

To help me not forget to make any specialize gifts or handmade cards, I've printed out all the birthdays on a list. I grabbed my favorite papers from Imaginisce's latest release (Heartland Farm), I trimmed and layered a few patterned papers together, topped with my birthday list. 

I added a few simple touches with some alphabet stickers and other cute stickers. Then, I laminated my list- making it easy to mark off birthdays with a dry erase marker, and reuse the list every year. Last, I used my Imaginisce's Cordless Glue Gun and hot glued my button down for a little bit of detail. 

I hope I've given you some thoughts to make your life more simple. :)

Farm Fresh

Our latest release, Heartland Farm, is full of vibrant colours & patterns, that it makes it easy to create so many wonderful projects.  Check out this fabulous layout by DT members Suzanna - those black & white photos look wonderful with all the colour used in the layout.

Farm Fresh

Suzanna here today to share with you a follow up layout to the one I shared a couple of weeks ago. I shared this layout of my daughter the farmer in her garden and all the goodies she had successfully grown. I mentioned the cucumbers that weren't quite ready for harvest. Today's layout is of that ONE cucumber and my silly clown with her cucumber!

Though different sizes, this layout will be the opposing page in my album from the "Home Grown" layout, as they are the perfect compliment to one another. Same topic and by utilizing the same collection there is some unity between the two.

These denim pockets that are part of the Heartland Farm collection are so fun! I just love the tucking things into them!

I love the die cut sunflower but it doesn't really fit with the theme of the layout. By adhering a complimentary button on top, it could be the sun amidst the blue sky on a perfect summer day for garden harvesting.

I hope your garden is flourishing and that your summer is bright and cheery, just like this collection!

Have a Lovely Day

Wow! Wow! Wow!
Who wouldn't want this stunning project to grace their kitchen table.  The colourful papers in the Heartland Farm collection look perfect here from the flowers to the adorable box shape.

'Morning Glory Box Card'

I LOVE Morning Glories! I plant them every year so that they climb up my mailbox. 

So, when I saw a morning glory box card digital file at SVGcuts, I knew I had to make it. 

The Heartland Farm papers were perfect. I used my I-Rock and a mixture of  metallic gems and crystal rhinestones to bling up my flowers. The I-Rock is such an easy tool to use and a few gems can turn an ordinary card into an extraordinary card.

Good Times

We love the use of the enlarged photo and the pops of colour everywhere on Monique's layout.

Summer in New Orelans layout

Hello everyone! For today's summer layout I decided to use one of Imaginisce's older collections: Perfect Vacation! It's one of my favorite Imaginisce collections and as I still had quite a bit of it I thought this would be perfect for the idea I had in my mind. I wanted to scrap one large photo and the sheet with the large map is just ideal to use as background!

Last May we've been to New Orleans and booked a cruise on the Mississippi River on "Steamboat Natchez". We had such a wonderful time that it had to be scrapped!! Here's what I did:

A page like this doesn't need a whole lot of papers and embellishments, but I did want to include those fabulous die-cuts and made two little clusters to add to the left and right of the photo, which I adhered using Imaginisce's cordless pink glue gun.

Next I added the title and because of the large photo I wanted the title to be large as well. I used different AC Thickers in different sizes and colors to achieve this.

Last but not least came the journaling and a little wood veneer heart and I was done! Hope you like it!

Summer Decor & Hair Pin Set

How adorable is this?
What a great idea for a little girls summer birthday party!

I have said it before...I love creating Summer projects and I am so in love with the Heartland Farm Collection!  Guiseppa here today to share with you another fun project.

Those of you who know me, know that I love my Silhouette Cameo.  I have had so much fun using the Heartland Farm Collection and my Silhouette Cameo together, but did you know that Imaginisce ROCKS the tools as well.  Here is my project and then we will talk Imaginisce Tools.  How fun is this beach set?

I thought this would be cute as a fun little gift for a cute little girl.  Notice in the seat of the chair that there are some cute I-Top Snap Booby Pins?  Yep, I made those.  

So, to make those, I used Imaginisce's I-Rock tool, some Snap Daddies and Snap Bobby Pins!  I love that I can make custom projects with this tool!

I also used Imaginisce's I-Magicut to cut the ribbon holding the bobby pins together.  This tool is absolutely fabulous!  I never have to deal with a frayed ribbon again!

Some pretty rocking tools right?  So, what are you waiting for?  Imaginisce Tools are a perfect for all of your crafting needs. Don't forget to get busy with the Heartland Farm Collection as well.  Thanks for stopping by and make sure you are always checking the Imaginisce Blog to see what the design team is up to!
