Imaginisce {giveaway}


Hello everyone! I posted yesterday about my love for the Imaginisce i-top and shared with you how I used paper and the punches that are created to go with the i-top system to make brads for a layout.

Today I'm sharing what I made using the accessories for the i-top and fabric. I used the medium size snap daddies and bobby pins to make fabric-covered hair accessories.

Here is what I learned and can pass on to you, should you choose to use fabric with your i-top. I had the little templates for tracing, but as it turned out, it was more difficult to get good coverage if I used it. I ended up just making solid circles, as you can see in the above picture. And the extra material seemed to work just fine with the actual tool as I snapped together all of the pieces.


And here are the finished hair pins! And they snap off, so if you wanted to, you could use one pin and change out the decoration at the end as you wished. So versatile! Of course, you know I'm going to be playing around with the i-top for a long time.


To celebrate my new love for the i-top, I am giving away an i-top here on my blog!


Here's what you can do to gain entries to the giveaway:
1. Follow my blog and leave a comment letting me know you did.
2. Leave a comment letting me know you stopped by and saw my project.
3. Post this on Twitter and leave a comment that you did that.
4. Post this on Facebook and leave a comment here.

Sketchy Thursdays is also giving away an i-top (and accessories) to one winner this week. Leave me a comment here that you posted your entry to the Mr. Linky at the Sketchy Thursdays site and that will also earn you another chance—just for playing along over there.


So there you have it! My big i-top secret. :) A big thanks to Imaginisce for sponsoring over at Sketchy Thursdays. I'm so excited to be able to demonstrate what this fabulous tool can do for crafters—it has so much potential!

You have until Wed night, June 29 to comment for your chance to win—have a great weekend!! And if you already have an i-top, I would love to see the links to your projects so I can visit your blog. Thanks so much for stopping by!

After seeing your hairclips and then scrolling through your awesome layouts (love the squishy one) I can't help but follow! Would love you to come see my unconventional use of my i-top for my McFlurry flowers. Scroll down a few posts to the McDonalds one. Thanks for a chance to win! I need one for my friend who is ALWAYS using mine! x

Shannen said...

Oooohhh! I have just discovered the Imaginisce i-top and I WANT ONE!! (I sound like a spoilt brat, huh?!) Oh, these tools are so wonderful and I love the hairclips too. Only problem is I think if I do get one, my daughters will give me a list so long, I'll never make all of what they want. But we sure will have fun playing with it non-stop! Thanks for the chance!
