Scarlet Lime Watch Bands & Giveaway!

Many of you have seen me wearing this darling pink and black chunky watch band at many of the events the Imaginisce team has attended these past few months. I know, because I’m asked everytime I wear it, “where did you get that cute watch.” So I gladly explain that it is a watch band/bead kit from Scarlet Lime Bead Art and for $10 you can string your own watch band. These are very much like the popular watch bands seen around the crafty world that typically cost anywhere from $20-30 and does not include the watch face. But what I love about my watch bands is I can change them to match whatever outfit I’m wearing. 


What I love about Scarlet Lime watch bands is they are super easy to put together (aside from being very cost friendly). You simply visit their download page and print off the watch band you have purchased. Here’s some tips that I’ve learned from the many bands I’ve put together.

One of my favorite watch bands!



1. Spread your pieces out on a piece of felt. This will help keep them from rolling off your table, but if you’re in a bind I have found a hotel bed works just a good. 
2. It is really easy to build the watch from one “end” up, building both sides of the band. 
3. When you’re ready to finish off your band, don’t tie it off at the very top near the clasp. String it around about a ½” and end it on the side. Trust me on this one…other side the end piece will drive you crazy. 
4. After you tie off the end with about three knots, simply drop a small dot of super glue on the stretching string…this will keep the string from accidentally coming undone. 

WATCH BAND GIVEAWAY!! 
So after my last scrapbooking event I contact my cute friend Christy of Scarlet Lime telling her many of our Imaginisce fans really love the watchbands she offers whenever I wear them. She was flattered and offered to send me some of her newer and more popular bands to giveaway. Sorry I didn’t give this away before Halloween since that band is here too, but hey, I hear black and orange looks good other times of the year too.

Here’s what you need to do to win (you’ll be entered to win for each thing you complete):

Visit the Scarlet Lime website and tell us what product you love the most, come back and tell us by leaving a comment.

We’ll announce the winner on Thursday Morning, Nov. 4th.

I like the black metals and twilight..only because when I am on a photo shoot I wear all black and they would be fun and funky but go with my outfits. I love alot of the other colours as well.
