Design Team Challenge Day 2!

Hey all!  How's your Tuesday so far?  For least it is not a happy to get that one out of the way.  Today I want to share with you a challenge we have going on over at the Imaginisce Blog.  It's the Design Team Challenge.  What's that you say?  Here's the scoop!


  • Create a non-traditional layout (no circle, no squares, etc). Really think out of the ordinary here.
  • Use the color ORANGE somewhere on your project.
  • Use the i-top tool on your project.

Here is what I did!

Now...let's see yours!  Share with us your projects on our Facebook Page and you could be featured on one of our I Spy Features!

{Simply} Perfect...with Simple Stories!

Don't you just love having the smaller versions of Simple Stories fabulous collections in a 6x6 paper pad?  Today I want to share with you why I love the 6x6 paper pads from Simple Stories.
If you are anything like me, sometimes you just hate to cut into that wonderful piece of 12x12 paper just for a small part of the paper.  That is why I love the 6x6 paper pads.  I am going to share with you a mini album I made and I made it all by using the paper from the Fall Harvest 6x6 paper pad.  I made a 6x6 album...perfect for my mini album.
