Paper with Pizazz

Hi there!

I hope you've been enjoying our mini blog hop from Imaginisce today! Have you been inspired by the projects you've seen today (and the past two days)? I sure hope so! There have been some wonderful projects & designs that the Imaginisce Design Team has created. I know that I'm always inspired.
Well, today over the at the Imaginisce blog you saw some peeks of our projects - our challenge today was to use our i-rock tools with the glam rocks and rhinestones on paper - projects of any kind from layouts, to banners, to cards!

I wanted to show everyone that it's such a simple way to add just that "little" bit of "extra" to your layouts with a few Glam Rocks added on to a layout. Here's what I created for the challenge:

"Laugh Often"
I used my Cricut for the title and circle design on this layout. I decided to use the glam rocks as embellishments around the circular design. Nothing fancy but it does add that "something-something".


Supplies used: Imaginisce (i-rock and pearl Glam Rocks, Animal Crackers paper, stickers and ribbon), Core'dinations cardstock, 3L (Foam squares), Cricut cartridge (Graphically Speaking), Fiskars border punch


"A Laua for a 10 year old"

On this page I embellished the number 10 (which was cut from my Cricut) with the pearl Glam Rocks. Then I made some scored lines on the Black Core'dinations cardstock and decorated the inner square with some colored Glam Rocks as well as some of the diecut flowers.



Supplies used: Imaginisce (i-rock tool and Glam Rocks in Color Fushion, Enchanted paper and die-cuts), Core'dinations cardstock, Cricut Cartridge (Graphically Speaking), 3L (foam squares), Paper Trunk (Black letter stickers), EK Success border punch)

"Let's Get Together"
I decided to use the Glam Rocks to add the "steam" from the coffee mug on this card. The mug was cut with my Cricut.

Supplies used: Imaginisce (Apple Cider paper, i-rock tool and Glam Rocks in Metallic), Core'dinations Cardstock, twine, 3L (foam squares), Fiskars border punch

Thanks so much for stopping by. Now don't forget to leave a comment on each of the blogs you've visited today (including mine! ;)) and now head on back to the Imaginisce blog and leave a comment there for your chance to win some i-rock goodies of your own!!

I really like the Laua one the way that the #10 came out and then the way you used the bling as the steam from the mug on your card that was a great idea!!!
    Thanks for the ideas.
