Love Creative Imaginations

Creative Imaginations really has some good products and I love some of their paper lines. I have been able to pick up some of their papers at different scrapbook events and also clearance sales at different websites on the internet.

Linda and I went to a swarm a few months ago and the store we were at had some stuff on clearance. I picked up this Creative Imaginations Bare Elements Wood Words "CREATE". I had forgotten about this until I was moving some stuff around the other night and decided I would get it altered. The letters are approximately 3" x 5" each.

Supplies Used:
Creative Imagition BE Create
K & Co Susan Winget Best Of
Cuttlebug Daisy Quilling Set
Cuttlebug Carnation/Rose Quilling Set
Cuttlebug Butterfly Die
Hot glue
Scotch Quick Dry Glue
Various Ribbon
Shrinky Dink Material

You might have to click the picture and make it bigger to see the little Shrinky Dink butterflies I did. There is one on the C, E and T. I added a little hot glue to the back and stuck them on the flowers.

This is what the letters look like before altering them.

I am very limited on wall space in my craft room due to storage units and shelves so about the only place I could find to put the word was above my Bygel rods that hold my punches. I think it looks pretty darn good there and when people walk in it will be the first thing they see on that wall. 

Now my little Cricut Plushie has something pretty to be happy about besides sitting amongst a bunch of ugly punches.

I think I really like altering chit.....


  1. GREAT JOB! i'm finding my 'niche' with chipboards too. never knew they were so much fun to alter...this is really cute.

  2. I love your altered "CREATE". The colors are beautiful. I still haven't tried shrinky dinks, but love your butterflies. I'll have to give it a try when things are less hectic.

  3. That turned out really cool! I have lots of wall space and yet I never think to put things up on my walls unless it's more shelving for storage! LOL

  4. You so need a "like" button...
