We have another
MONTHLY CHALLENGE
upon us at Imaginisce!



With summer now here we thought it would be fitting to have a 
summery kind of theme for this month's challenge.

So this month's challenge is to:
  • Create a layout/card/altered project with the word "SUN" (or sunshine) 
  • OR the object of a SUN in your project.
  • You must use at least 75% Imaginisce product on your project
  • Upload your entry HERE
  • Deadline for submissions is July 25th, 2012
Prize:
One lucky winner will be chosen from the monthly entries submitted
and win 2 current collections of their choice.
I whipped up a very fun and easy bookmark that would also make a 
wonderful summer or anytime craft for kids!
 Here I've used a plain sheet of white cardstock, patterned papers
from the Imaginisce Makin' Waves Collection, fabric ric rac and embellishments.
I created the sun using a 22mm I Top Punch and 1.5" circle punch

To create the bookmark you will need a 6x6 piece of heavy paper
1- Score paper at 3" mark, turn and score again at the 3" mark
2-  Turn your paper and score from corner to corner (will look like scoring a triangle)

I have marked the scored lines in orange so that you can see them:

3- Fold the paper to create the triangle

4-Take one of the tips of the triangle, crease and  fold it down as shown
 

5- Next, bring the two side points up and fold; you will now have a square

6- Fold the sides in half to give a crease...it should now look like this:

7- Lastly, take those points and now fold them back over and into the
pocket of the bookmark

That's it!  No glue required, except for adding those fun embellishment with.
These would make sweet back-to-school gifts for teachers or kids.
Christmas will be here before we know it, so think stocking stuffer!

Hope you've enjoyed the tutorial...the photos aren't the best as I took them in
early morning.  If you have any questions, please leave a comment with your email
address (or email me from the side contact list) and I'll get back to you :)

Thanks much and a Happy 4th!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!


Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
