Simple Scrapper Project and Digi-Scrapbook Page

BLOG Erin Bassett - Imaginisce - Enchanted - 4x4 mini 1 I'm excited about a couple of things...

  • First off...I used my Cricut Imagine for the first time to create that tag on the cover of this 4" x 4" mini album.
  • Secondly, I created this project for Simple Scrapper  - I'm creating over there now!  :)

I think this will be a great little mini-book for my niece (4yrs old) to put her pics in.  She just started ballet lessons so I'm sure those would be great!

I used January's Simple Pages/Projects to create it along with Imaginisce paper (that princess is from Imaginisce too).

Surprisingly, it only took me couple of minutes to create that tag...granted, I demo'd the Imagine back at CHA Summer for ProvoCraft so I wasn't a complete novice at it.  I just choose what colors/patterns I wanted...and then had the Imagine print it and cut it out.  It made me so happy to create the perfect embellishment for this project.

I also created a digi layout with one of the templates from January's Simple Pages/Projects and with this FREE digi kit.

It was really fun to be able to do some digi stuff...I kinda miss it!!

Faux Metal Embossing

2011-01-07 Erin Bassett Make and Take2 - Remember When Ok, technically it's not faux since we're using tin foil which is metal...however, this is a really easy (and cheap!!) way to get the look of pricey embossed metal.

I taught this technique for the "Friday Night Technique Tag" at Remember When this past Friday and Karla filmed it for the store...thanks Karla!

i-Top Ring & Pin Cushion

I've made a couple of little i-top things recently and since we're having a i-top intensive week over on the Imaginisce blog this week I guess now is the perfect time to share them with you!

This is a fun little ring I made with my i-top and some cute fabric flowers.  The great thing with these rings is it only takes a minute to snap them together to create your ring and then when you're tired of it you can just un-snap it to take it apart and change it out to be a new creation.

I also made a little pin cushion.  I love quick and easy projects...I think it took less then 10 minutes to make it!  Basically it's a mini-pillow with a button in it's center.
