Butterfly Love and a cool new tool

I just love new scrapbooking tools. Although I have to admit that I am usually not the first to jump on the bandwagon for the latest and greatest scrapbooking products. But this tool is so cool, I just thought that I might make and exception. I am talking about the new irock tool from Imaginisce. I just happened to get one in the mail the other day (one of the perks of being on the DT) and I have already tried it out.
Let me show you what I did with it.

The gems that I used on this layout is the pearl glam rocks.
This tool is pretty easy to use, but I must warn you that it does get VERY HOT.

On this layout I used the To Love & Cherish line from Imaginisce. I also used some fabulous Core'dinations cardstock where you can sand the front side of the paper and another color show through. This is the Black Magic paper. And on the top strip of patterned paper I used my Copic markers to color in a few of the flowers. I also dusted off my Cricut Expression. I cut the title and the butterfly with my Cricut. Oh, and did you notice the I-top brads in the middle of the flowers? I sanded the paper a little and then put some of the ice stickles for a little added shine.
