The Hop Order:
My project was inspired by two episodes from Heidi Swapp's show on My Craft Channel - the Flip Chart episode and the Cascading Pages episode.
I followed the directions Heidi gave in the Flip Chart episode to create my album base. I used a cereal box and covered it in patterned paper from Imaginisce. (The cereal box allowed me to have a bigger album - this is 6" wide x 7 1/2" tall.)
To make my pages I used Heidi's tip to cut the cascading pages for my album, then I added in a few off-cuts to give it a bit more variety.
Everything here is made with the Black Ice kit from Imaginisce - I kept it all black and white with the pops of color coming from my photos. I added a few Glam Rocks to my cover page with the iRock...I love how it sets them so quickly and easily!
Once I had the flip chart base covered and my pages cut, I punched and bound them all together with my Cinch. Then I added a bow to the front (a combination of May Arts silk ribbons and The Twinery's Charcoal twine) to finish it off.
I love the finished product and think it makes a great addition to our home decor...and our memory keeping.
Before you move on to the next stop on the hop...today I've got a special guest on my blog - another SuperFan, Midge Hammon. Here's is Midge giving us information about her project:
Welcome to the My Craft Channel SuperFans 2013 blog hop! I’m Midge Hammon and I can’t wait to show you the beautiful project I made using some of the products and papers given to us by Imaginisce. The papers are gorgeous and the tools and bling so cool!
Our challenge was to choose a show from My Craft Channel and, using Imaginisce, make our version and/or try the techniques from the show. Well, I love Heidi Swapp and look forward to her show every week. Her summer, 2013 episode 3 was calling my name! If you've seen it, you know what I'm talking about.
After cutting out the heart center, I was able to play with the I*magicut ribbon cutter and sealer and the I*rock heat-setting tool, both from Imaginisce. They are awesome! The I*magicut cuts and seals the ribbon in less than a second. And you don’t have to wait a long time for the tool to heat up. Depending on the style you like on the ends of your ribbons, you can position it in the I*magicut so that it will make the appropriate cut for you.
The I*rock made the task of setting the hot rocks bling a cinch. They are the perfect touch to the sweet picture of my great-niece. Place the bling where you’d like it, hold the I*rock on top of it for a few seconds, and it’s set. I finished the page with a butterfly and crystal flowers from Mon Ami Gabby, wrapped the flowers in a ‘bow vase’, and added the word ‘love’ from Heidi Swapp’s word stickers.
Now that my project is complete, I can display it. It looks great on the mantle! I hope you’ll give it a try!
Thanks for stopping by today - enjoy the rest of the hop!
