It's Blog Hop Time with Imaginisce and The Twinery!

Have some fun and join in the blog hop going on this week with Imaginisce and The Twinery.  There are tons of fabulous projects and inspiration to see from the designers from both companies.  Oh and did I mention there are prizes to win??  Yes, some pretty great prizes.  Leave your comments on everyone's blog for a chance to win!  

I had the great opportunity to work with The Twinery's beautiful twine.  They have such an assortment of colors to choose from that you will have no problem finding the color you need for any project.  

Take a look at the layout I made:

The lollipop embellishments are made from the Twinery twine.  I cut circles out of cardstock, ran the circles through the Xyron Creat-a-Sticker and then wound the twine around on the adhesive side of the circle.  I started on the outside of the circle and worked my way inwards.  I also used the twine to tie around the lollipop sticks.  


I thought the lollipops turned out really cute so I decided to use them for the main embellishment on the page. They were almost as cute as the photos I used in the layout, but of course I'm a bit biased ;)


Imaginisce: Childhood Memories Collection, Good Dog Collection.

The Twinery:  Peapod, Maraschino, Lemondrop, Ocean, Midnight Blue, twine.  

Other supplies: Xyron Creat-a-Sticker, White Cardstock.  Sticks, Pinkering scissors, turquoise gel pen.

Cutie Pie Chef Layout & Celebration Tag

We R Memory Keepers Feeling Groovy Collection, a collection that matches my daughter's personality.  Beautiful and vibrant spring colors are so much fun to work with.  I chose these photos of my daughter helping bake Easter cookies to do the layout with.  I also used one of my favorite tools, the Lucky 8 Fancy Scroll Punch.  Added a few flowers and bling and the layout came out beautifully.  

Here are the closeup shots to capture all the details in this layout.

The Lucky 8 punch made a great border with the teal card stock which I overlaid the 12x12 shape punched out of the striped paper.  

I also love the chipboard letters that come with this collection.

Flowers and bling for the finishing touch!  Visit to view the entire Feeling Groovy collection.

I also created a tag for any celebratory occasion with by combining several patterned papers, an embossed tag and ribbon.  I really love the embossed tags that We R Memory Keepers adds to all their collections.  

Hope you have a fabulous day!

For The Record, Biker's Rock!

Let me just start with saying that I LOVE THIS COLLECTION!  We R Memory Keepers For The Record is full of fabulous patterned paper, embellishments and the colors are fantastic!  If I were you I would head right over to and buy the For The Record bundle, you will not regret it.

The colors in the collection are perfect for those 'guy' photos!  I really love how this layout turned out.

The embossed tags are great for adding dimension to your page.

The color combos and patterns, and they all work well together so you can't go wrong mixing and matching to get that perfect look.  I have some more biker photos to scrapbook and I can't wait to use the rest of this paper to do it!

Hope you have a fabulous day!

Inspired By Color

Join in this week for the Imaginisce's Inpsired By Color Feature:

For the Inspired  By Color challenge I made a fun Party Invitation.  

I started with a basic brown and beige background and accented it with the Color Shine spray.  The color shine colors used are teal and gold.  I then combined the pretty blue and orange on the left side of the card for a bold background to the flowers. 

For the festive look of the card, I made flowers using the Paper punches.  I wanted to keep the card simple in design but incorporate as much color as possible.  I tied in the rest of the colors in the challenge by using the polka dot paper from the Animal Crackers collection for the second layer of the flowers.  I also sprayed the flowers with some Color shine and added the pearl brads. 

 I had fun with this project and hope that you will join in the Inspired By Color challenge and have some fun of your own!

Hope you have a fabulous day!

Supplies:  Paper from Happy Camper Collection, Good Dog Collection, Animal Crackers Collection, Beige & Brown Cardstock, Heidi Swap Color Shine (Teal & Gold) , Glossy Accents, Aqua Stickles, Pearl brads, Imaginisce's Paper Punch Small & Medium, Sunset Sizzix Font.

Flower Pendant and the I-Bond with Imaginisce

This week's project for Imaginisce was to make something using the I-Bond Hot Glue Gun.

So...for my I-Bond project, I experimented with hot glue and stamps.  I had a blast and created a flower pendant necklace.  

Yes, it's hot glue….I know, wow!  How is this even possible??

To make the pendant:

I started with a clear stamp and Turquoise Versa mark ink.  I turned the inked stamp over so that it was laying inked side up.  I then squeezed clear hot glue over the top of the stamp with the I-bond.  After waiting just a few seconds, I flipped the stamp over on to my glass mat and pressed the stamp down so that it spread the hot glue evenly over the stamp.  Then, I let the glue cool slightly before peeling up the stamp.  To give it a shiny look, I put a thin layer of Ranger's glossy accents over the flower.  To give the pendant definition I used a black felt marker and went over the lines the stamp made for the flower petals.  I just can't resist bling so I hot glued a large rhinestone to the center of the flower.  Once everything was dry, I hot glued the flower pendant to the silver pendant piece found in Imaginisce's Magni-top Necklace and Pendant collection.  

And there you are folks, a beautiful necklace!  Grab yourself an I-bond and get creative!

Supplies:  I-Bond, Clear hot glue, Clear flower stamp, Turquoise Versa Mark Ink, Ranger Glossy Accents, Black felt marker, Rhinestone, Imaginisce's Magni-top Necklace and Pendant.

Have a fabulous day!
