~i-ROCK Cristal Clear BLOG HOP!!! (video tutorial)~

Good morning my crafty friends!!!!!
I am excited about the blog hop today!

If you are here it is because you just left Melinda's blog...
and here is my project today...a VIDEO tutorial!!

I work with acetate and acrylic all the time especially being the
DT for Clear Scraps acrylic. I was finding my i-rock gems were popping
off my acrylic pages and cards, so I came up with this technique to
make them last and stay on...check it out

Don't forget to watch the credits *wink*

Now did you hop to each blog and hit follow along the way?
If you did you could win a
BIG I-ROCK prize package!!!!
Hurry back to Imaginisce and leave a comment!!!!
