Piecing It Together

I have a couple of things to share today.
It's time for the new Monthly Challenge at Imaginisce!

Here are the details: 
We want to challenge you to use patterned papers & embellishments to create a paper pieced design/project.
  • You can use your die-cut machines, hand-drawn images, stamps, punches, etc.
  • You must use at least 75% Imaginisce product.
  • Upload your entry HERE using the link tool.
  • Deadline for submissions is April 25th, 2012
The Winning Entry will receive:

an i-top 2.0 tool & accessories!

 For my take on this challenge, I used a combination of 
Imaginisce's Makin' Waves and Hippity Hop Collection patterned papers,
the 34mm Brad Daddy Punch, I Rock Tool and Gems
 to create a Spring Door know how much I love 'em *wink*
 I also used chevron ribbon from May Arts, of which the ends I cut using the I-Magicut from Imaginisce.
 The sweet house and clouds are svg files that I downloaded for FREE from :)
 The base of the hanger?  a legal letter envelope from Bazzill!  I just inserted a sheet of chipboard into the envelope and machine stitch around the perimeter to increase the stability!

 Come on over to Imaginisce Blog and link up with us this month!

This week is Easter Inspiration Week as well at Imaginisce.
The Design Team has created some really cute projects to share and inspire you with :)
My card (shown bottom left corner) will be up tomorrow!

And since I'm showing you a little sneak...have you seen the new Summer line
from Simple Stories?  It will make you so happy you'll swoon, so hold on...

Gingham, calico, denim and dots...who could ask for more?
But of course, Simple Stories gives you more with their sweet 'n shabby artwork of
coordinating cardstock stickers, journaling cards, 6x6 pads and clear overlays!
See the entire line right here at Simple Stories!

Off to work on a couple of projects.
I'll be back tomorrow with my Easter card :)
Have a blessed day!

Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.

Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
