WHEW! I think school is finally over for most of us. What a whirlwind week those final days of school always brings. The parties, celebrating successes and saying goodbye to friends all create for heartfelt moments.

Butterfly Kids

The class project pictured above was one of favorites. The teacher had all the kids watercolor a butterfly cutout and then each child posed for a this picture. On the back of the butterfly it reads as follows:
We began as caterpillars,
small and new.
With love and hard work
We spread our wings and grew!

Sigh! It sums up how fast your kids grow up in one school year, doesn't it? For you teachers out there, THANK YOU!! for all the dedication and love you shower our kids each year!

Now to start our summer vacation here in Southern California. It's not quite summer hot here but things are smokin' in the eP warehouse.

So many new products came in this week that I want to share with you. Everything needed its own section so this may be a little longer than usual. Be sure to read till the end to find out where to go for an eclectic Paperie giveaway.

Hope you are planning a great week in anticipation of the big July 4th weekend. Happy Monday!

"Feed Your Creativity"

Crystal and Stud Heat-Setting Tool

From the company who brought us the i-Top brad maker, Imaginisce now brings you another cool new tool called i-Rock! It's a portable, battery-operated helper to bling your paper projects. The tool, when turned on, omits heat to help you affix the special i-rock gems to your projects. The gems have like a hot-fix glue so no need for messy glues.

There are cute Glam Rocks that come in "lipgloss tubes" that come in a variety of colors. The Hot Rocks Compacts that contain lots of crystal gems in many colors and sizes. Then, there are also i-rock Stencil Kits that can help you create a design with bling and flowers. You can also use the i-rock tool to affix the flowers onto your projects.

The i-rock tool retails for $12.99. It does require 3AA batteries. The gems are offered in a variety of offerings that range from $3.99 to 12.99. You can review our video interview with Jeff, owner of Imaginisce, as he talked to us about the i-rock tool at Winter CHA. If you want to see more project ideas, check out the Imaginisce  Website and see what their design team has created with the new i-rock tool. Here is a sample below.

Wedding season seems to be in full gear and this new Imaginisce collection called To Love & To Cherish is an elegant design for such an occasion. The i-rock tool helps to add that extra touch for special paper crafts. No glue mess and quick application of sparkle and bling. It's also never too early to start thinking about all your holiday projects. When you're mass producing cards or handmade gifts, sometimes the right tool can help in creating something special.
Button Daddies - for the iTop
New iTop embellishments from Imaginisce

IMG Button Badges

The iTop tool is such a fun gadget to have partly due to all the different hardware that was developed for it. With the paper crafter in mind, Imaginisce created Brad, Magnet and Badge Daddies so that you can customize and create your own embellishments. Now, there are Button Daddies. They come in 3 different sizes. Think about that Tattered Floral die that you have and being able to create your own button center. Fabric flowers seems to be the current hot trend and to be able to create your own with a customized center using either a brad, badge, or button would be great fun.
