WARNING:LONG POST!! New sketch and Jenni Bowlin/Core'dinations Week, Imaginisce monthly challenge

Hi there!

So I'm back (even though I didn't really go very far this time) from a wonderful weekend of teaching and working in the Canadian Scrapbooker booth at The Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival this past weekend!! We had an awesome weekend! Many wonderful things to see & do and our classes (both Christy & mine) went really well! Thanks to everyone that attended!

Here's some pictures of our weekend.
The Loonie Make & Take Bar - this was always super busy!

Christy teaching a class.
Gyoza - oh yum!!! Our last night together we just enjoyed appetizer after appetizer!!
Christy, Sonja, me & Katharina - Cheers!
Today Sketch #3 is revealed on Club Got Sketch. I loved this sketch! And as I've mentioned before I can't show the sketch but this is my layout from the sketch. I stayed quite true to the design.

Supplies used: Core'dinations Cardstock, Imaginisce (patterned papers, i-rock tool and Glam Rocks), Divine Twine, Cricut Expressions and Birthday Bash cartridge

I had been wanting to scrap these photos of my youngest Kindergarten grad from last year and was so happy with how they worked with this sketch. Thanks Valerie for another fabulous sketch.

Another fun thing happening this week (April 4th-8th) is a blog swap with Jenni Bowlin and Core'dinations!! As you know these 2 companies have teamed together and Core'dinations has created cardstock that goes along with Jenni Bowlin's papers! They're so fun!

Here's some projects that I have created.

Supplies used: Core'dinations Cardstock (Impressions Jenni Bowlin collection), Jenni Bowlin (patterned papers, stickers, buterflies, buttons, cards) Divine Twine, Fiskars border punch

Under the photo is where I placed some hidden journal. So I basically made a flap that you lift up and then can read my journaling.

Supplies used: Core'dinations cardstock, Jenni Bowlin (patterned papers, buttons, butterflies, stickers), circle punch (EK Success)

Supplies used: Core'dinations cardstock (Jenni Bowlin Impressions collection), Jenni Bowlin (patterned papers, stickers), Fiskars border punch, seam binding, button, stamps (Hero Arts), oval punches (EK Success)

Make sure to check out the Core'dinations blog every day this week to check out all of the wonderful projects created by the Design Team. Oh, and don't forget about the current design team call that is going on right now. Details are posted on the blog.

Another fun thing happening today ... because Monday's are just so full of excitement aren't they?? You have to check out Imaginisce's blog today because it's our Monthly Challenge. Some designers will be posting their work today and then half way through the month more projects for this same challenge will be revealed.

This month's challenge was to do some paper piecing. You can paper piece in a variety of ways from stamping images over & over and layering them, using a Cricut machine to piece together images (as I did), use punches to create designs, etc . The possibilities are endless. I loved this challenge because I've been using my Cricut more & more these days and I'm having so much fun!!

Here's what I created for this challenge. Who would have thought that wedding paper would work for a hockey layout??? It totally does! I used "To Love & Cherish" paper (black & white) for the background, and some patterned papers from the "Dino Roar", Scooter's Vacation and Animal Crackers!

Supplies used: Imaginisce (papers, sticker), Core'dinations cardstock, Cricut Expression & All Sports cartridge

You can play along with this challenge as well. You must use at least 75% Imaginisce product and then you'll be entered to win a fabulous i-top package worth $75 or a range of fabulous products from Imaginisce. If you leave a comment on the blog you'll have a chance to win an i-rock and accesories! How cool is that?? COOL!!!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a fabulous day!!!
