Cricut Imagine--Is Here

Yes, I was one of the many many people who bought the Imagine during the launch on HSN.  Honestly I didn't have any intentions of buying it but when my husband said "aren't you going to get it" I figured who am I to I have the BEST husband in the world!!!

Anyway I was pleasantly surprised on Tuesday when my Imagine arrived since I was told my expected delivery date was Friday.  The arrival was bitter sweet.  I didn't realize how big the Imagine actually I had to rearrange my cutting/ printing table, which took some time.

I'm still excited...can't wait to play with it.

My unscheduled absence

I can’t believe it’s been over a week since my last project was posted. The whirl wind of life took over and it was a minute before I could regain control. So for that I apologize. I will be back next week with a few projects and a BIG surprise. The surprise will be more towards the end of the week. It would be cool to see if anyone can guess what the surprise is. Hint it has to do with crafting. Any way just wanted to check in and say “Hi”. Life should be back to normal next week. Can’t wait to finish my projects and show you guys.

Be back soon.

Don’t wait these great prices won’t be around for long. Click here

Holiday Stocking Card

This card was created for 2 challenges:
  • Mojo Monday 154: To play along, just make a project using the provided sketch and upload it to your blog or online gallery
  • Made by Momo: This week’s theme is to use Black and White, and then you can pick 1 other color of your choice.
So disappointed...I was having trouble getting my picture to load and the linky closed for the Mojo challenge...what a bummer. I'm going to leave a comment and hopefully they'll still take it.

On to the fun stuff! I figured since the Holiday Season is right around the corner why not get a jump start on my holiday cards. That’s how I ended up with red for my color choice and Xmas for the theme. Unfortunately the picture doesn't do the card justice; it's one of those you have to see in person. Hope you like…would love your feedback.

Cartridges used: Accent Essentials- squares & scallop circle, Christmas Cheer- Xmas Stocking & present and Joys of the Season- Ornament & candy. Martha Stewart glitter- Xmas Stocking, Stickles on the ornament and Cuttlebug for embossing- Swiss Dotts folder.

I am a proud owner of the Scrap’n Tote and honestly don’t know what I did before this product came along. Even though we have a store that sells this product but I am a crafter first and would never endorse or promote any product that I don’t use or simply LOVE. It’s one of those products that you won’t really understand the quality and functionality until you have it!
