Imaginisce Creepy Crawly Blog Hop


How would you like to win an Imaginisce i-top and a ton of accessories???  Would it put a smile on your face like the little munchkin above?   With a new i-top, you would be able to make some special little lady in your life her own kitty headband, just like the one above...   All you need to do is read through this blog post, leave a comment and then "crawl" to the blog of the next person listed at the bottom of this post.  Tut, tut...you must leave a comment on all blogs in the "crawl" to be eligible to win.  But don't fret, there are only a few hops, so no need to worry about blog hop "burn out".  Trust me...you will be very, very, very happy you hopped :)

To see the Imaginisce i-top in all of its glory and to drool over all of the super cool accessories, please click HERE.  It could really motivate you to keep hopping.
So as I was saying (before we got distracted by the prize and time commitments of this hop)...would you like to make your own Kitty Headband for someone dear?  It's really an easy process.
Halloween is the perfect time to make little critters with your i-top tool. Imaginisce is now offering some really fun products like headbands and bobby pins with a twist attachment that allows you to change your look from season to season. This Kitty Headband can easily become a little Gnome when Christmas rolls around. It is just a matter of unscrewing the special Twist iTop Brad and replacing it with a new idea.
For this project I used the To Love and Cherish collection along with the 28mm Twist Daddies to make the body of my kitty and the 18mm Brad Daddies to make the head. Then I used a small leaf punch to create the little ears. Next, I used my i-rock tool to adhere the little green gems as eyes and added some plastic as the whiskers. The flowers are a combination of Imaginisce Cupcake Fabric Flowers in Bright and To Love and Cherish Soft Elegance in black. There are just so many possibilities for the i-top and i-rock....

Thank you so much for stopping by and for the very sweet comment and please have fun hopping to the blog of my talented friend Melinda Spinks!  She has another project idea waiting for you, especially if you happen to win the i-top.  Good Luck!
