Bling It On!

Welcome to our little hop today!  You should be arriving here from Samantha's creative blog. 

I'm so excited to share my project with you!  There are many fun ways to create in papercrafting and I truly enjoy mixing up my projects.  The design team at Imaginisce wanted to spice things up too and feature some fun and brilliant projects using our i-rock

I immediately knew I wanted to play along and make a mini!  If you have a Bind-It-All and it has dust on it, I challenge you to create a project with it!!!  Without further delay... here is what I created using our latest release "Berrylicious" and my Bind It All.  The "Pucker Up" title just had me at hello for some photos I have been saving!
I added some gems strategically to my title block and on the watermelon and lemon accents for some additional interest.
I found the covers for this bracket book by Teresa Collins on clearance. I cut the interior pages using my Cricut Expression and Accent Essentials cartridge at 5", then trimmed on the left to fit.

Here I used my square i-rock frame stencil on the lower left corner of my photo.  Some bakers twin in red/white was used on my tags and also to tie around my Berry Sweet page through one of the binding holes. 
For the next page, I created a tag from the packaging of the canvas stickers.  I trimmed it and cut some angles at the top.  Interestingly enough, as I was erasing my pencil marks I discovered that the eraser actually distressed the edges to a cool white.  I love it when things just work out like that! 
I finished the tag with a touch of bakers twine in green and white.  I loved the feel of the bling in the title for this page! 

On the sunshine page, I added some life to the sun with a bunch of cheerful yellow bling! 
How fun is this line!?!  "Cross my heart Sweet Tart!"  I just giggle everytime I look at these photo's!  The heart is cut with my cricut, then I stitched around it and used some florist wire to wrap for interest.  On the "Pucker Up" page, the sun was created by blinging the petals of a yellow Heidi Swapp felt flower and then stacking the sun face in the center. 
The End.
