I made this card a couple of nights ago with the new Cricut Imagine. I had some glitter glue out last night for a different card and saw this card sitting there and next thing I knew I was sparkling this card all up. I really love what the imagine can do but with the added glitter I think it is amazing.

You're a Hoot

This card was made using the Imagine. I used the Imagine more cartridge for the Owl and to flood the You're a Hoot which was from the Hoot'n'Holler. I embossed the background paper and used a border punch for the border.

Here is my first card made with the Imagine. I couldn't believe how fast and easy it was to use. I am so impressed with everything this machine can do. I have done several more projects I will post soon.
This card was made with the Nursery Tails Cartridge. I did the layers option on the Turtle and the You are my sunshine. Then I glued a googly eye on the Turtle, punched the bottom and inked the edges. I think took a total of maybe 10 minutes and that's with me never using one before.

Can you "Imagine" what I could put here?

If you guessed Cricut Imagine well you are right. I'm so excited I ordered it on Monday night right at the premier. I got an e-mail that it was shipped so last night I worked on my craft space to make room for the new addition thinking I'd get it next week sometime. Well I tracked the package today and it's suppose to be delivered TOMORROW!!

It's Owl about you

This is from the Hoot'n'Holler Cricut lite Cartridge. I absolutly love this Cart. I do have a problem cutting the sayings. I don't know if it's just me or if it's a common problem. I do notice that the bigger the size the better but that doesn't help when I want to create smaller projects. Owell I will keep trying different pressures and paper strengths.

Below is the before picture of the mini photo Album. I don't know about you but I think the owls are so much cuter.

Halloween Cards

The next 2 cards my 11 yr old daughter made completely on her own from the colors to the sayings. I love this girl.

Picture Frame

I got this old frame from a friend who was going to get rid of it. I saw some potential right away. I am starting to think holiday so I went with a Christmas theme. I used paper from the DCWV the Christmas stack. I ran it through the Xyron with Permanent adhesive. The Snowman is cut with Christmas Cheer and the Season's Greetings is cut with Beyond Birthdays. Then I took my I-rock and added bling not only to the snowman as buttons but around the frame on the snow flakes. I also added red glitter embossing powder to the snowmans scarf and to the season's Greetings. Thanks for looking!!

I had this really ugly box that I found up on a shelf the other day that I have had for years. I bought a whole bunch of greeting cards and they came in the box. Well I don't use store bought cards anymore so I donated them to Goodwill and kept the box. I have been trying to find a storage solution for all the handmade cards that I've made. I make them in several different sizes so to find a container (that was cute) to fit them all was really hard. So when I found this box I decided to re decorate it. Now I love it it's perfect.



Now you can't tell really well with these photo's but for the Butterfly and the letters I used DCWV glitter paper. The top of the box I used the Martha Stewart all occasion cake art cartridge. Then with Gypsy welded the "cards" together with opposites attract. The back of the box I used Base Camp. The paper was from the Flower Shower paper pack also by DCWV.

Chore Clip Boards

My kids are great kids but they seem to always forget what Chores they have to do.I needed something that they could refer to daily to remind them. I didn't really want to do the chore chart. We've done that before I wanted something different. This is what I came up with. The clip boards I was able to customize to each of them and we can hang it on the wall fairly easily. Plus they get the satisfaction of moving one chore stick from the "to-do" pocket to the "Done" pocket

I took a standard clip board and painted it Black with some acrylic paint. I used the sewing machine to attach the pocket and then sewed down the middle to separate the To-do pocket from the Done pocket. Then with a Sharpie I wrote each chore on (all ready painted)Popsicle sticks from the $1 store. I used the Indie Art Cartridge for the designs and Base Camp for the Writing.I also used a standard clip board and painted it purple with acrylic paint. I used the Base Camp for the writing and used Gypsy Wanderings for the music notes. I used the Crop-a-dile to punch holes in the Popsicle sticks then tied ribbon through the.
