Day 3 ~ The i-top 2.0

The i-top 2.0 can be used to create so many amazing projects.
Hopefully you've noticed that over these last 2 days.
But we're not done yet. We've got another great show for you today so take a seat, get another cup of coffee and enjoy!!

The projects that the girls are showing today have been created using a variety of Brad Daddies (i.e 34mm ) and the Button Daddies (extra large - 34mm).


"Thankful" card

Aphra created this stunning Thanksgiving card and used the i-top 2.0 to create a brad for the center of the floral arrangement. We love all the layers and dimension on here!



Fall Necklace

Lydia has been at her crafty magic again and created this stunning piece of jewellry with her i-top 2.0, a 34mm button which she covered and then threaded onto a choker necklace. She embellished it beautifully with some feathers and some Glam Rocks using the i-top tool.



Thanksgiving Card

Cristal's children wanted to use her scrapbooking tools recently to make some cards for their teachers and grandparents. They used some twine to wrap around the brad daddy, cardstock, googly eyes (of course) and Imaginisce patterned paper.
Isn't he cute??? Great job Hobbs kids!



Fall Brooch

This breathtaking design was created using the extra large button (34mm) and covered with burlap. Erin finished it off perfectly with some silk flowers, twigs, tulle and put it on a pin backing.

Thanksgiving Napkin Ring

At the Smith's Thanksgiving dinner they write down what they are thankful for and then place those papers in a decorated vase in the center of the table. Shemaine's father reads all of them outloud after they said Grace.
What a wonderful tradition Shemaine.

rush said...

we are still trying to figure out a new tradition. we always have pumpkin pie. we enjoy that immensely! with lots of whipped cream...the real stuff!

Suzana said...

There are so many possibilities with those extra large... loved the fall brooch!

Wendy Crowe said...

Love these projects! The bigger the brads, the better they are!
Our tradition at Thanksgiving is since we have the whole family together, we take our group pictures. Mom gets pictures of and with all of her grandbabies. :)

Chelle said...

We don't have a Thanksgiving tradition. We are Canadian and celebrate in October. We used to go to my inlaws for dinner (I HATE cooking) but since they smoke and I am allergic I can't handle an overnight there. We take the day to relax...this year I went to a HUGE craft show (which I have been too before).

Nicole said...

I'm really tempted to say that my favorite to say that my favorite Thanksgiving tradition is the turkey with all the stuffings!!! (it is SO good! - hehehe), but i have to say that it is the family getting together and having some quality time. There's nothing i am more thankful for than family :)

Diane Hodrick said...

Our traditions are tied to the meal we eat. Every Thanksgiving we have my mom's meat stuffing, squash, turkey, and mashed potatoes. Dessert is a free for all, but we never vary that meal. Miss my Mom dearly, but love that she left us with so many memories!

Anna said...

Our tradition is just getting the family all together to stuff ourselves! LOL!! No really we don't really have any traditions other than getting our tree the day after! :)

Kelly Massman said...

An old tradition in our family was to go to Christmas Tree Valley the day after Christmas! We don't do it anymore because they closed down, but we all have fond memories!!! Thanks for a chance to win--I've been longing for an I-top!

Drayia said...

I am Canadian so had Thanksgiving back in October. Our tradition if you call it that is to have a full house. We invite our single friends and our family to dinner. I love to cook and everyone loves my bread/cheese dressing. Happy Thanksgiving all and love all the ideas that I can use next year at my table.

PamS said...

Fantastic projects today. I am really liking that burlap on the button and that turkey is adorable.

Tammy in Ontario, Canada said...

I really like the layered flower and that brooch is beautiful!

Other then the food choices, I don't think I have any thanksgiving traditions.I'd love to start one I had seen on the internet. For a month before everyone in the house puts a little note in a cup each day saying 1 thing they are thankful for or something nice they did for someone else that day. On thanksgiving all the little notes are taken out and read out loud for everyone to hear. I thought this was really nice and something I would like to try next year. I don't remember where I saw this but it stuck in my head.

Barbara said...

Thanksgiving was always a formal dinner prepared by me as a gift of thanks to my family. Since the kids are grown and gone far away and it is just the two of us, I still prepare our Thanksgiving meal as a gift to my husband, to say thank you for all the things he is to me, and all the things he does for me to make my life easier.

{VICKI} said...

several years ago we started putting up our Christmas tree on Thanksgiving day--it's a great way to work off that big meal

littlen said...

great projects. thanks to all for sharing. thanksgiving for us means a big family get together.

Miriam Prantner said...

Great projects! I just LOVE the turkey card!

Aimee Kidd said...

More beautiful projects from the DT girls!! I especially love the project from Pinky's kids!! I'm always on the lookout for projects my daughter can do!

The only tradition I can think of that we do is having our own little family Thanksgiving dinner the Saturday before Thanksgiving Day. It gets so crazy with the whole family together. So it's nice to be able to sit down together and really talk and have good family quality time at this thankful time of year!

Janeen said...

More great projects! Thanks for another day of wonderful inspiration! I am so greatful for my family! Besides the feast being a tradition we go around the table and each one tells what they are thankful for! :)

carrie said...

Brit K. Designs said...

Love the Fall Necklace and the Napkin Ring! So pretty & fun!

Our only family tradition is getting together and having fun & way too much food. We actually end up doing it twice since I'm the kid of divorced parents, we visit each side of the family. 2 turkey dinners in 5 hours in a lot of food. :-)

Holly and little people said...

We go around the table and starting with the letter A and the first person, we say what we are thankful for until we reach the letter Z. One letter per person until you are done.

HeatherC said...

Wow the DT outdid themselves. I absolutely love ALL of the projects today.

And my favorite Thanksgiving tradition is getting to relax after a nice dinner and watching football of all things.

We have a table cloth that is some combination of paper and fabric. I bought it several years ago and now can't find another to save my life. Anyway, it comes out every Thanksgiving along with the crayons. Guests add to it every year and look forward to looking back at what they wrote or drew in years past. It's so full now and I want another! Maybe we will just flip it over... Thanks for the chance to win!

McVic said...

I love to take pictures of the kids and see how much they have changed from one year to the next.

Romy said...

Oh my, more gorgeous projects! I really love the necklace. It looks so pretty! Unfortunately we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Holland, so I don't have any typical Thanksgiving traditions either;) I just wanted to wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving:)

Tiffany Hood said...

Our favorite family Thanksgiving tradition is after dinner and everyone's settled, we gather around the table and play board games for hours while the kids play together. Eating pie and playing games is the highlight of the day.
I love Shemaine's tradition- I would love to start that tradition in our family.

Moondust47 said...

Oh how gorgeous!! The turkey is my favorite tradition!

Angie said...

Loving all the projects! Just gorgeous! Fave Holiday Tradition...going through the ads and planning out our shopping strategy for the next day. My mom and I have been going shopping together the day after for years! I really look forward to that fun time together.

Carol said...

A favorite Thanksgiving Tradition is taking a long walk before dinner to work up an appetite.

Kimberli said...

Beautiful projects by everyone! I love getting together and spending the whole day enjoying my extended family - we don't do it often enough!! Having all the yummy food doesn't hurt either! :) Thanks for the chance!!

Lisa W said...

We started a new tradition a few years ago after we got the Nintendo Wii. After we stuff ourselves with turkey, trimmings and dessert, we all gather to play Rockband. We have a great time singing a-long and cheering eath other on. This year even my husband's 86 year old grandmother sang a song.

Miss Cooper said...

We always take the time to pray together as a family. It's really special to hear the family verbalize all their blessings for the year!

Ange said...

Love the cards and napkin ring! One of my fav traditions is playing games with family and friends.

Ardilla said...

WOW, lovely project...
I don´t have any special tradition, sorry! Though for the last day of the year we thank God for the things that happened during the last 365 days... I know, that's not thanksgiving like yours, but it's our way to be thankful :)

Kendra K said...

Dinner with family is what we do. No special traditions, I hope I can start one with my future children.

We don't have any specific traditions. We just usually gather at one of the family members house and everyone brings a dish to share. Love the get-togethers. All of the projects have been so nice. Would love to try the buttons.
