Paper with Pizazz Blog Hop!


Today is the Imaginisce DT i-rock Intensive Paper with Pizazz Blog Hop! We are showing you different ways of using your i-rock on paper! You should have gotten here from the Imaginisce blog. If not start there to join in the fun and find out what the prize is!!!

Hello out there in bloggy world! I find myself just so thankful. Sometimes it's easy to focus on the things that aren't going right in life, but right now I am just looking at all the things that I feel so blessed to be a part of. Being a DT member on the Imaginisce DT is definitely one of them. This group of ladies is SO encouraging and SO kind and my favorite - drama free! :) So thank you so much to Lori for choosing me and thanks to my teammates for making me feel so LUCKY. :) 

I also feel very blessed to be a part of the Cricut Circle. So I thought I would sport some love in my close-up preview. Did any of you know what I was making with this? It was tricky because I turned the photo upside down so that I could get the Circle logo somewhat right side up! Let me know if you have any questions about the Circle. I am happy to answer them to the best of my ability!

My tiny lessons: 
  • Don't be afraid to mix and match your gems! 
  • Also, don't be afraid to mix and match your collection lines. This was made using Cottage Christmas and Apple Cider! :) 
  • If your i-rock is not setting the smaller gems in 5 seconds or less, then switch out the batteries. I hold it on the largest ones for about 10-11 seconds each. 
  • Sometimes the top gets a little loose after lots of use, so when it is is cold, screw it on tighter again by twisting it with your fingers.


Recipe:
Imaginisce Hot Rocks Compact in Pink, Black, and Clear™ (smallest clear gems)
Cricut Cartridges: Designer's Calendar™ and Birthday Bash™ 
Cuttlebug Embossing Folders: Argyle™ and Cricut Circle (can only be picked up at Circle crops and swarms)
Crop-a-dile
Copper Eyelets
Ribbon is Offray
Glossy Accents
pop-dots


OUT FOR PUBLICATION! :)

Now head on over to the fabulous Marielle's to see what she has created
