Imaginisce

Have you seen their new Garden Party paper line yet?  If not, you should go over to the Imaginisce blog and see what they are making with it.  It is so pretty and perfect for your spring projects.  I love the headband innovations that they came out with to use with the iTop tool.  I can't wait to get my hands on some of those for my daughter.  She loves headbands and even better if they have bling or flowers on it.

Christmas 2 Day Blog Hop and Candy - Day 2


Sorry this is up so late.  I had it scheduled to post this morning but for some reason it did not work.  I just got on to do the hop myself when I noticed mine was not up.

If you are here for the Christmas Blog Hop then you are in the right place! If you are just finding us please be sure to visit Josy's Blog to start at the beginning of the hop. You should have arrived from Alex's Blog and after my blog you will be going to Yolanda's Blog.

My project today is another Christmas present.For today's project I made a mini album for one of my Christmas presents. I am not saying whose present it is in case they read this.

Here are the supplies I gathered together to use but did not use everything

First I started with a round tin that had coasters with it, I bought it at my LSS on clearance for $1.  Then I took the coaster covered each side of each one with coordinating pp from DCWV Christmas paper from last year. I placed the coaster on the back of the paper and traced it and cut them out by hand. I took my black paint dauber and covered all the edges and slightly onto the flat part of the coaster before I taped my pp on. Then I applied Modge Podge over everything to seal the edges of the paper.



I decorated my pages with various embellishments. I tried to only glue the embellishments on the outer edges of the circle so that a photo could be slipped in behind them.


I am offering blog candy for the hop and because it is my blogaversary too. I have the Cricut cartridge Country Life and the Scrapbooking with Cricut book.  To get in with a chance to win this, please be a follower, post this in your sidebar, or if you do not have a blog, do a post about it somewhere and give me the link in your comment and leave a comment by December 18th. If you want an extra chance, visit my post from the blog hop yesterday and leave a comment as well and that will give you a second entry. I will be drawing the winner from the comments on this post and on yesterday's post. I will draw a winner on December 19th, my hubby's birthday.

Christmas 2 Day Blog Hop with Candy - Day 1

If you are here for the Christmas Blog Hop then you are in the right place! If you are just finding us please be sure to visit Josy's Blog to start at the beginning of the hop. You should have arrived from Alex's Blog and after my blog you will be going to Yolanda's Blog.  This is a two day hop so be sure to come back and hop for more ideas tomorrow.

For today's project I am altering a pocket calendar.  I like to give these as teacher's gifts and little stocking stuffer type of Christmas gifts.  I buy my pocket calendars at M's or J's for $1 and then personalize them for the person receiving it.  You will need the following supplies to start.

First I start by laying my calendar on the back of the pp to measure where I need to cut.

After marking the cut lines, I used my straight trimmer to cut my cover.  Then I put tape on one of the inside flaps of my calendar and fold around the edge, then I lay my calendar flat and put tape near both edges, the middle of each side and the spine.  Then start from one side and smooth it over to the other edge.  Then I put tape on the other inside flap and folder it around that edge.

This is where the fun comes in, I use my Cricut, ribbon, flowers, iRock and stickles to decorate each one to personalize it and add their name.



I did add the person's name to the front but I do not want to show that here in case they read this.  There are several people I know that love frogs so they will not know who it is for until Christmas:)

I am offering blog candy for the hop and because it is my blogaversary too.  I have the Cricut cartridge NIP Country Life and the Scrapbooking with Cricut book.  To get in with a chance to win this, please be a follower, post this in your sidebar, or if you do not have a blog, do a post about it somewhere and give me the link in your comment and leave a comment by December 18th.  If you want an extra chance, come back tomorrow for the hop and leave a comment on that post as well and that will give you a second entry.  I will be drawing the winner from the comments on this post and on tomorrow's post.  I will draw a winner on December 19th, my hubby's birthday.



Hope you enjoyed the hop and don't forget to come back tomorrow for another project and a 2nd chance at the blog candy.
