Day 4 ~ The i-top 2.0

We're thrilled that you are joining us again today for the final day of our release of the new i-top 2.0 tool. We hope that you've been enjoying all of the projects that we've shared so far.


If you've got some scrapbooking friends on your Christmas list this year then this would make the perfect gift (or just put it on your list!!)
It's not only used for scrapbooking but sewing, quilting, school class projects, jewellry, house decor, etc.


Let's see what our Design Team has to share with us today.


Samantha Hauzer
"So Thankful"

Samantha created this layout using an adorable picture of her children. We are all thankful for our family & friends and documenting those feelingst on a layout is a great way to share those thoughts with those we love so dearly.
On this page Samantha used the i-top and some brads to create a clean line of embellishments.


Melinda Spinks
"Thankful" frame

Here's a quote from Melinda regarding this stunning frame that she created.

"I decided to make a frame using our home grown wheat to hang on the wall and remind us to be thankful for the food we produce and to celebrate that we are having our first reasonable season in nearly a decade. The new i-top 2 extra large size brad daddies are perfect for thicker fabric like the recycled face-washer I used and the burlap is also a breeze with the new tool as the brads don't fall out beneath the fabric, now that is has the rubber ends. Love it!"


Kim Holmes
"Today I am Thankful"

We think this is a wonderful idea. Kim created an 8 1/2 x 11 layout that will travel around her Thanksgiving table gathering all
their family blessings this year - then it will go straight into her holiday album!

we really don't celebrate thanksgiving in the Philippines. I do remember regular sunday luncheons with the family especially when my Father was still alive. I miss those luncheons, its one thing I look forward whenever I go home. I used to work in an island before.

Ardilla said...

I had some american friends a while ago and they invited us to celebrate Thanksgiving. Now we live very far from each other, but I remember those celebrations with joy in my heart. I really like why you celebrate it and al lthe food is really yummy.......
Thanks for the chance!

Overhere in the Netherlands we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, so I can't share a memory. But I do want to say that I love all this weeks projects with the I-top tool!

Suzana said...

Visiting with family and not having to do the cooking;)

Thanksgiving wasn't a huge deal in our home growing up. My parents didn't come to the states until just before my older sister was born, so it was new to them too, but we've gotten better at it as time has gone on. But one of my lasting memories is realizing that most people have their meal in the middle of the afternoon....my parents always treated it as dinner and I didn't figure it out until I was at college visiting someone else for Thanksgiving. BTW, I am IN LOVE with that Thanksgiving frame. STUNNING!

Nicole said...

I don't have a favorite Thanksgiving memory... but what i remember most about Thanksgiving as a child is helping my mom with the supper, setting the table for her, helping her in the little ways that i could. It was always the times that we got to talk together the most, from mother to daughter. It still is today :)

Randi said...

My Favorite Thanksgiving memory was having my first Thanksgiving with my hubby and baby daughter. 4 months old and trying mashed potatoes for the first time. They were all over it was great. I am truly thankful for my husband and now 3 kids.

rakiya32 said...

Don't really have one, don't celebrate it that much except to go to craft shows (ours is in Octoboer). Thanks for the chance to win.

Claire said...

Since I'm English I've only ever celebrated one Thanksgiving and that was a Canadian one back in October '94. I had my first taste of pumpkin pie! Maybe I should say it's an 'acquired' taste!

Wendy Crowe said...

My favorite memory was the year we had an impromptu food fight...even Mom and Dad got in on it. Now everyone sits on the edge of their seat wondering if it's going to happen again...Mom warned us that it better NOT!
This too is a must have! I added it to my list! Now if I can only explain to hubby what it is! lol

Tammy in Ontario, Canada said...

Happy Thanksgiving. I don't really have a favourite memory of Thanksgiving..I simply look forward to it every year for the time together with family and the great meal.

Angela said...

One of my favorite Thanksgiving memories is sitting around the table before we ate while everyone said what they were most thankful for.

Melinda AKA medialady said...

My favorite memory is the last Thanksgiving gathering we had at my aunt and uncles home before he passed away. He was very sick but we all had such a wonderful time together, tell jokes and sharing stories from the past. I documented it with pictures and "thankful cards" and later scrapbooked them into a book for my aunt.

Moondust47 said...

Just having everyone in the same place at the same time makes my memory special. <3

Barbara said...

A favorite memory is when I got busted by my oldest son for roasting a large chicken instead of a turkey, and pretending it was the latter! I never did it again! We had turkey from on, as long as our sons were at home. Now it's just the two of us alone, and we're back to chicken!

PamS said...

My favorite memory goes back to when we use to go to my Grandmother's house for Thanksgiving day. There would always be way too much food but it was all delicious. And all the cousins and aunts and uncles would have a great time together. And after dishes were done we would load into the cars and go downtown to look at the Christmas displays in the department store windows.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

quilter74 said...

Here in Italy there isn't Thankgiving day,I think all days we can tell thanks to all!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

jrugg said...

Every thanksgiving my family gets together at my parents house-I am going there now!

Anna said...

I used to love to go to the brother-in-laws family's house when I was little! They had so many games and kids there and we never wanted to leave :)

littlen said...

i still remember all the fun thanksgiving meals we had as our rather large family gathered at my grandparents home when we were kids.

CheckerBeads said...

fabulous projects! My fave memories are just hanging with the family. :)

Dr. J said...

I love our traditional Thanksgiving weekend walks in the woods. In Canada Thanksgiving falls earlier so the weather is usually quite lovely and the trees are at their height of colour.

Thanks for all the inspiration this week. I love the wheat frame with those burlap covered brads!

mom2five said...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the i-top tool!! It's not on my want list... it's on my NEED list.

Lesabe said...

One of my favorite thanksgiving memories is when I was a kid we made a HUGE leaf pile and we jumped from low branches of the tress into it. So much fun !

Holly and little people said...

My favorite thing is to just be around family. As long as there is family, it's fun and totally worth it.

Aimee Kidd said...

I love going to my husband's family Thanksgiving meals. After we've eaten and cleaned up it's game time. We usually play Mad Gab or Pictionary. We always have a lot of fun and laughs.

Wishing all a very happy Thansgiving or just a very special day to those who don't celebrate! Beautiful projects today from the DT girls as always!

sharon g said...

A favorite memory is our last Thanksgiving with my sister in law and her family. They were going to move to Michigan from California. Maybe we will be able to spend another Thanksgiving with them some day....

Iris said...

The year we had to bring the TV set into the dining room so that the guys could sit at the dining room table and eat and watch football at the same time. And that was long before anyone had a color TV or a big screen. After cooking all morning, no way were they getting TV trays to eat in the living room! Iris

Amanda said...

I remember playing with my cousins in the green space across the street from my grandparents house after the Turkey dinner. There's a bunch of trees and bushes and my cousin and I would pretend to be woodland fairies :)

SandiB said...

I don't really have one other than spending great time with family and friends.

ajmaluck said...

One of my memories was visiting my dad when he was in the Air Force and he was stationed in Louisiana. Spent the entire weekend visiting.

Erika Taylor said...

So many great things to see over the past 3 days. Thank you for sharing all of them.

Best thanksgiving memory was one where my mom just got a new oven and the darn thing wouldn't work. Turkey Dinner was at 930 at night, but we had a fantastic time as a family throughout the day.

Happy Thanksgiving

Drayia said...

My favourite memory is a house full of people, both family and friends and the wonder smell of homemade pumkin pie!

Denay said...

My favorite thing about Thanksgiving is spending time with the family. Our oldest lives out of state and this year he got to come home and be with the rest of us! We won't have our dinner until tomorrow (Friday) so that he can visit with other family members! I can't wait to see what memories we make this year!

Maria said...

I am thankful for my family and good health

Lorraine said...

hi great post i am thankful for my family and of course my health and my gorgeous dog too xx

Tona said...

Loved todays projects! Thanks so much for the inspiration!
My fave Thanksgiving memory is entertaining my nephews with board games when they were young. They're in their 30's now & still talk about it.

Regina aka Mrs. Ham said...

My favorite Thanksgiving memories are when my grandmother was alive. She cooked the best Thanksgiving meals I ever had. I miss her so much...

Lizzy Hill said...

We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia, but we DO have 'harvest festival', a church day, which is a very special service of thanksgiving ~ my fave service was in a little country town [1 general store, 1 pub, & 2 churches ... that was IT!] that I lived in called Amphitheatre, in Victoria. All the farmers brought a TON of produce to be blessed, & then it was sent to the next biggest town for those in need. Great idea:)

Majken said...

My favorite Thanksgiving memory is deciding to go see a family movie after the big meal. I can't wait until my youngest is a little older to do this.

I have seen my friend use the iTop and I'd love to get one for Christmas. :)

Christine said...

My favorite Thanksgiving memory is the of the year that I made my first turkey for my family. Most years we would get together with my extended family and my mom did all of the cooking. We had moved out of state and we couldn't get back home for the holiday. The turkey turned out really well and everyone raved about the taste all day.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day and full of family and friends and love!!
Fantastic projects. I love all of the posts this week. It really convinces me that I need an i-top!
xoxo, Christine

Angie said...

When I was little we would go to my grandmothers home and after dinner the whole family would play board games. That was a lot of fun! Happy Thanksgiving! Thank you for the chance to win!

Shanda said...

I remember watching Grandma make leftsa. It was wonderful to see her do something so special for the family.

Janeen said...

Growing up with the whole family around the table giving thanks! Now I have my own family to be thankful for!! Thanks!

glenda said...

My favorite Thanksgiving memory is that of my grandmother cooking in the kitchen when I got out of bed on thanksgiving morning.

Heather Landry said...

I adore Melinda's frame with the wheat in it! What a creative project!

Everyone did an amazing job with the new iTop. I've loved checking out all of the projects this week.

Lisa W said...

Thanks to everyone who created the wonderful projects that were posted this week.
Here's my favourite Thanksgiving memory. A few years ago we had my husband's family over for Thanksgiving for the first time (we usually went to one of his sisters). It was a really warm day and everything was going great until mid-afternoon. It started pouring rain and the kids were having a great time playing outside. Then just as we were finishing getting the food ready, the power went out, so the search began to find lots of candles. All 17 of us ended up eating by candlelight and the power came back on just as we were finishing dessert. To this day whenever we offer to host a dinner, everyone offers to bring candles, just in case. :)

Jean said...

My fave memory is having my husband and two children around the table. I love the school projects - pilgrim hats, milk carton turkeys, etc. I miss those days now that they are 23 and 28. I hate having one of them not home,

Tonya said...

My favorite memory is alway seeing relatives that we only see on Thanksgiving, it's great to catch up!

Carol said...

My favorite Thanksgiving memory is celebrating with my fellow expats while living in Naples, Italy. It was so good to eat some down home favorites!

mom2five said...

my favorite memory is thanksgiving with my immediate family... using the special dishes that were grandma's, sparkling cider in champagne flutes, and each of us going around the table and, with each of our five kernels of corn, telling five things we are thankful for.

rossnfiona said...

Here in Oz we don't celebrate thanks giving, but our family love to get away and go camping together.

Janie said...

I would say today's memory has to rank right up top. After the feast today, my sisters and nieces were working on crafts for a Santa Secret Shop I am hosting next month. I thought it would be fun to give the kids a place to shop to finish up their Christmas shopping for their parents, grandparents, siblings, etc. It is exciting to see my family members getting crafty for a change. My only criteria for the Santa Secret Shop was that all items be hand made crafts. It is going to be a blast.

Savannah O'Gwynn said...

OHHH! What a fabulous set of projects--LOVE that frame with the burlap brads!! LOVE:)

My fav Thanksgiving memory is gathering together with my family and eating ham and playing games! FUN!

The WAY TOO BIG kids riding a big wheel down the septic mound hill. Funny!
