I bought this yummy twine the other day from the lovely Kimberly at The Craft Spot. Just came in today.  Check out her blog and all the goodies she sells.  Also has a really cute challenge going on right now.


Spring Wreath- FCCB challenge #53

Hello!  Wow!  2 posts in one day.  if you want to see some really cute Imagine cards click HERE.

I had a little time today and decided to sit and craft for a while.  I decided to decorate a wreath I've had in my closet for over a year.  Hhhmmm, what should I do with it?  The juices started flowing and I decided to Spring it up a bit.  I'm also entering into the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog (Challenge #53).  Check them out HERE.  Great blog!!


This flower is made with 5 scalloped shaped flowers.
added a brad and stickles around it.

Cut this from the Stretch your Imagination cartridge.  Used "fake"
glimmer mist for the color along with some colorbox inks.  If you
want to learn how to make your own "fake" glimmer mist click HERE

I used the Gypsy Wanderings Cricut cartridge and my Cuttlebug to
emboss the dove. Also used my Colorbox and Martha Stewart inks

AFTER!!  For the flowers around the wreath I used the
Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge.  I misted them with
yellowish, pink and blue colors.  Hot glued all the embellishments
to the wreath.  This is what I came up with.


Imagine Baby Cards/Tie a Bow challenge

Hi!  Here are a couple of cards I made using the Imagine Nursery Tails cartridge.   Also entering the girl card into the "Tie a Bow Challenge" at My Craft Spot.  Enjoy!

The sentiment is from the Michael's $1 section.  The pattern paper is from my scraps stash.
 I used the layers feature on the onesie and pop dotted the onesie to give
it some dimension. I added a brad to the sentiment tag, inked it with some
Colorbox ink.  Then I added some MS brown rik and rak

For this card, I also used the layers feature and pop dotted the dress.   The ribbon
for the bow is from my stash.  The patterned paper was shaped and made using the Imagine.
The sentiment is from Michaels.

These cards were quick and simple.  The recipients loved them!  :)

Happy Crafting!
