Rock it Out! Day 4

Today brings us to our last day showcasing some fabulous i-rock projects.

We've got some handy little tools that will help you handle the gems & rhinestones ... such as the Lighted Tweezers and the i-rock Jewel Tray.

The tweezers make it so easy to place the rhinestones exactly where you want them. Plus the Jewel Tray makes clean-up a breeze as you just twist off the cap at the end & dump the rhinestones back into the tube.

Design Team member, 
has created several stunning projects using the i-rock tool.

This week it's "I-Rock" week at Imaginisce's! For my I-Rock projects I knew exactly what I wanted to do: I wanted to decorate a tin I’ve been saving for an occasion like this and I wanted to do a layout (as that’s what I love to do most). 

Altered Tin
Let’s start with the tin; originally it looked like this: 

And now it looks like this: 

The crystals add just the perfect finishing touch!

The I-Rock tool quickly became one of my favorite tools. It’s so very easy to use: insert 3 AA batteries (it's cordless), put the switch on "on", press button down to start heating the metal tip (15 seconds) and while you keep pressing the button down you gently touch the top of the crystal to melt the glue on the back. This takes only a few seconds, depending on the size of the crystal. 

I also love all the extra's you can get for this tool, like the jewel tray and the tweezers:

Supplies Used: Imaginisce (Love You More: patterned paper, sticker sheet and washi tape; I-Rock stencil kit). Tool: Imaginisce I-Rock.

And to show you these crystals are also perfect for a boys layout I created this page about my youngest fitting caps. Instead of the soft pink crystals I used for my other project I've chosen bright blue and orange crystals for this project.


and a few close-ups of the crystals:

I really love how this turned out. From now on the I-Rock tool will be within reach for every project I create!

Supplies Used: Imaginisce (Good Dog: patterned paper; Childhood Memories: sticker sheet; Rhinestuds).
Other Supplies used: Bazzill cardstock, October Afternoon washi tape, Studio Calico color mist.Tools: Imaginisce I-Rock, Silhouette Cameo, TCW mask.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope I've inspired you to do some scrapping today!

I was wondering how this tool worked and i'm glad I found this post. I love to put bling and glitter on just about everything so I guess there will be much more jewels made on my projects from now on. Wondering if this can be used on clothing?
