Winter blog hop with Creative Memories product Imagine That! The Skies the Limit

Welcome to blog stop six of our Winter Blog Hop.
Imagine That! Collection

With the winter being cold, I'm imagining the soaring over the skies seeing the world. Summers by the Sea; and Making Memories.

My customers have looked at the new Imagine That! Collection but tell me all the time "Candace, I can't use that collection. I don't have boys. I don't go to Disney. So I have no use for a castle." So I challenged myself of how you could use the embellishments differently? I saw a sand castle and the background as rocket ships or roof tops. I used them as rockets soaring over the clouds with Super Mom saving the day. You could even use these for a sky scraper, trim off the top and there you have sky scrappers.

Imagine That! Collection

Border #1 Super Mom

Step 1. Cut a border out with the Scallop Decorative Border punch with the blue Chevron patterned paper as the base. Using straight trimmer, trim paper at 1.5"
Step 2. Using the cloud paper and the smaller wave on the Double Waves Tearing Tool. Place tool on paper at 1" from top and tear.
Step 3. Using black polka dotted paper trim with straight trimmer at 1/4”
Step 4. Using Shooting be Stars punch stars from gold paper with "X's" on them.
(Note I found out stars on firework embellishments is the same size. So if you need more stars on your page. This punch is perfect match.)
Step 4. Take the "castle" embellishments and carefully pull the blue layer off black layer. This is your rocket ship. Adhere the superhero and add one of the rhinestone to the chest. I use the diamond one to make it pop. I also use the moon rhinestone for the opposite side.

Border #2 Smile

Step 1. Using the stripe paper and the smaller wave on the Double Waves Tearing Tool. Place tool on paper at 1"
Step 2. Trim with the blue Chevron paper 1/8"
Step 3. Trim the black polka dotted paper trim paper at 1/2"
Step 4. Trim camera print paper 1 1/4"
Step 5. In the variety mat pack there is a card with a camera on it and it says "Making Memories". Using your Creative Memories scissors cut out the camera and the words "Making Memories". Adhere them to the black polka dotted strip. Use a pop-up to pop up the camera. Embellish border with the jewels from the Imagine That! layered embellishments.

Border 3 Let's go to the Beach

Step 1. Tear the gold paper with the smaller wave on the Double Waves Tearing Tool at 1" from top and tear.
Step 2. Tear the blue Chevron paper with the larger wave on the Double Waves Tearing Tool at 1" from top and tear.
Step 3. Using straight trimmer, trim the black polka dotted paper at 3/16"
Step 4. Layer as shown in example.
Step 5. Adhere pop-up dots to the back of the blue Castle to make it stand out.
Step 6. Add pendant flag and gemstones from the Laird embellishment pack to complete the Border.

I hope you LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this and this has inspired you to stretch your Imagination.
