Featuring Imaginisce's I-top Tool

Imaginisce has been featuring their really cool I-Top tool on their blog all week.  The tool can be used for all kinds of fun projects!

My fun project was embellishing a pair of flip flops.  I secured a silk flower to the center of the sandal. Placed a button daddy in the center, covered with A Day in The Life paper from the Childhood Memories Collection and then embellished it with Hot Rocks and the I-rock tool.  This was a quick and easy way to add a little pizzaz to a pair of sandals sitting in the closet.  

Supplies:  I-top tool, Medium Button Daddies, 22mm Imaginisce punch,  I-Rock tool, Hot Rocks, Pogo Adhesive, Silk flower. Childhood Memories Day In The Life Paper, Flip Flops

Visit and check out all the great projects the Design Team has been creating!

Have a fabulous day!

Spooky. Scary. Beware!

Beware! This blog contains a SPOOOOKY Halloween Card!  

I love the skull and crossbones paper in this collection and thought it would make a great theme for a Halloween card.  The matching skull and crossbones sticker was the perfect centerpiece.  I wanted to keep the color tones the same to capture that SPOOOOKY feeling of Halloween.

I chose a dark brown sheer ribbon to tie around the card and embellished the bow with a brad.

Spooky. Scary. 

Create your own spooky card by visiting Fotobella's blog to see my tutorial on how to make this card.  But wait!  First you have to get the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Halloween-I Want It All Bundle.

I also made a Journal tag with the collection.  Quick and easy and it will be a great addition to a layout. It's fun to embellish layouts with tags.  With the I Want It All bundle, there are plenty of supplies to make ton's of tags like this one and lots of layouts.  It's a fabulous buy, definitely don't miss this one!  

Have a spooky (but not so scary) day!

Lost & Found Halloween by My Mind's Eye

For Fotobella's Design Team project this month I got to work with My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Halloween Collection-I Want It All Bundle.  This is a fabulous collection.  Great Halloween designs and fun embellishments.  I really had a lot of fun with the embellishments in this collection.  

For the title of the page I used the Happy Halloween Chipboard Sticker and the pennants from the Cutouts sheet.  


When placing my embellishments on the page, I like to layer them and add dimension with pop dots, ink and a few pieces of ribbon from my My Mind's Eye ribbon stash.

My Mind's Eye does not disappoint with this collection (do they ever?!?)  No way!  This collection is a really great deal at  Go check it out and don't hesitate to get the I Want It All Bundle so that you have plenty of product to play with!  It's well worth it!

Have a fabulous day!

"My Two Loves" Layout

Today I am sharing the Love You More Collection by Imaginisce.  This collection is beautiful!  Perfect for those "Love" themed projects.  I chose two of my favorite photos of my kids to design this layout around.  I love how it came together.

I really like mixing and matching patterns as you can see in this layout.  Chevrons, hexagons, hearts, polka dots make for a stunning combination (I think ;).   What I like most about this layout is the cutout heart I used to frame my son's photo.

To embellish the page I matted the Love You More sticker sentiment and added a button and twine.

               I also added dimension to my title by adhering the sticker letters using pop dots.  

Wishing you all a Happy Valentine's Day!
