Everyone loves our i-rock templates, we know because we keep selling through them and having to bring in more. Stores are telling us these are among the best selling item in their stores. Everyone loves a something they can use over and over again and have cute designs. Imaginisce actually has three different designs currently. We are working on next designs for next year. Be sure to keep reading to see how you can create your own or win one!!
The following pillow and card designs used the Swirl Templates to create the beautiful flourish pattern on them. The great thing about our templates is they're made from a HEAT RESISTANT material so that you can touch it with your i-rock tool and not melt the material.
Another Tip: In stead of leaving the template in place and dropping each stone in and setting it inside the holes of the template, you can simply mark where the holes were with a pencil and go back and add the stones of your choice.
We've had tons of requests for more templates and we're working on some amazing designs hopefully to release for next year. But in the meantime, we've got a couple great ideas from our cute friend over at PinkCricut. She created two videos showing you how to create your own templates.
The first video shows you how to use your Crop-A-Dile hole punch to create your template. Here's a template design we worked up for you so you could try this technique out yourself. Click on the image to make it larger and open in new window and right click on it to save it to your computer to print (you can resize it too). Enjoy!!
You could also use one of my favorite tools to for this same technique. Some call it a Japanese Screw Punch and others call it an Anywhere Hole Punch. Simply print out your design and punch holes along the lines to create your gem pattern.
The second video shows those of you that have a Gypsy and Cricut how to easily create your own template from designs you have stores on your Gypsy. I've tried this and loved how amazing the designs turned out when I was finished.
Let us know which of the PinkCricut videos you think you'll try and we'll giveaway one of our Template Kits and a new i-rock tool. Be sure to leave Sarah a comment so she knows you stopped by to check out her videos!! We'll announce all winners from previous weeks each Monday.
