Imaginisce deliciousness.

Have you ever had a paper you loved SO MUCH, you didn't want to use it? That's what has happened here. I have had the following beautiful floral papers for over TWO years (this is back in the day when I didn't buy 2 of the same sheet and was afraid to use it for fear of ruining it-LOL) I was able to mix this older line with the newer Twitterpated line (the small items you see cut out). And I LOVE how this floral pattern looks. Who says you can't use flowers on a 'boy' page!?

Supplies: All items Imaginisce EXCEPT: cardstock (prism & bazzill), alphas from Michael's, Paint from $1.

I liked the flowers on the previous page SO MUCH in fact, I used the excess I trimmed when making my pattern paper shape and used it to frame THIS LO. I took extra care when cutting out the flowers from another sheet of pattern paper and added them as an element here. I found the alphas were getting lost on my LO, so I ran a light stitch over them.

Supplies: Kraft CS-The Paper Company, papers-Imaginisce, buttons-from stash, alphas-Am. Crafts.

This last LO is a re-do (I know so many people dead-set against it but REALLY this one NEEDED to be re-done!) I had a great time shaping my paper (I trace my interesting die cut shapes on a piece of thin chipboard-usually something you get off the back of a paper pack, cut them and then use as needed). I cut my cute little embellies from pieces of paper and pop dotted them for dimension. I then stitched several pieces before adhering for added interest and finished off with some bling. I am WAY happier with this LO and I put a SERIOUS dent in my stash with it! woohoo!

Supplies:cardstock-Bazzill, papers-ALL Imaginisce, buttons-stash, bling-Imaginisce & unknown, border punch-Martha Stewart, alphas-Scenic Route

This last item is just a simple card. I made my die cut border with a new punch, backed it with contrasting cardstock & then hand cut around it. I next added a punched border, a simple bow and circle punched sentiment. I cut the cute penguins at the bottom from pp, inked and pop dotted them. Easy peasy!

Supplies: Cardstock-scalloped swiss-dot Bazzill , papers-Imaginisce, penguins/sentiment-Imaginisce, ribbon-unknown, border punches-Martha Stewart.
