Tuesday i-top Intensive Mini Hop

Welcome to Day Two of our i-top Intensive mini blog hops. The Imaginisce design team members are featuring some clever ideas for using your i-top all this week and today's theme is all about using it to make Top-notch gifts.

Each of today's designers is using a different type of i-top accessory (brad daddies, magnet daddies, and button daddies) to create some gifts that are just as fun to create as to give. Here are some sneaks of what you'll see on your hop!





Please visit all three of the designers' blogs, leave a comment and then hop back here to the Imaginisce blog and leave a final comment letting us know what you think. All of your comments make you eligible to win an awesome i-top and accessories of your own.



One more thing - You will want to hop over to the Imaginisce blog for the rest of the week for more ideas on how to use the super creative and incredibly fun i-top with chances to win your very own i-top each day and a SECRET grand prize opportunity on Friday.

Happy Hopping!

Tabitha said...

Loved everyone's projects. The magnets would be great for teachers, the frame with the hearts for a long distance friend (have a few of those in mind) and the scarf for myself. I received a new scarf and it would look even better with some felt flowers. Just had a blast on today's hop. Feeling very inspired to create myself. All that's missing is an iTop! ;0) Thanks

I loved each of the designers projects. Each one took it in a different direction that got me thinking of all the uses for the itop. I was glad the bloghop was short. Some are just too long and you loose interest or get creative overload.
