Findings on Imagine with Gypsy

ok seems to be working fine.  When designing on your Gypsy remember that what you design to be at the top of the gypsy is actually going to be on your far right of the Imagine...this is important to remember if your patterned paper needs to be turned a certain way!


OMG I am so Gypsy now can send cut files to my Imagine!  No way to color them in but just happy I can use my Gypsy to send the files to my Imagine

If you have an Imagine and a Gypsy get over there right away and do those updates!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yippee......I'm going to go play!

Imagine and Gypsy Updates Available Now

Yep you heard it right...Sassy told me.....I hurried on over and updated both my Imagine and Gypsy...have to check out and see what the updates did...first off I did notice the Imagine has a new icon to print edge to edge on your 12x12 paper!  YES!

Kick Up Your Heels

I just got this wonderful acrylic stamp set in and had to make something with it!  Think this card would be fantastic for giving that special girl on her first prom, homecoming, sweet sixteen party...any more thoughts?

Hope you like it!

The stamps are by Hero Arts and I colored them in with archival acid-free markers...wording is done in a deep burgandy color box ink and of course had to incorporate my favorite roses by Prima the glitter on the edges of them.  the gold glitter ribbon I found at Walmart

Anniversary Card

Anniversary Card

I am late sending my friend who also is a designer for our site and blog a Anniversary Card so got the idea I would make it tonight and post it while she is asleep gggggggg

I used Linen Card Stock for the base...then I had Jolee's Boutique Wedding Doves dimensional embellishments for the center focus

Then I told you today about the great find on ebay for floral embellishments...the flowers are just so much prettier in person...the large one has glitter on it!

If you would like to check them out just go to

When adding floral embellishments I like to do them in groups of 3

You can't see it but on the inside I stamped a real fancy Happy Anniversary in a sparkling gold ink that just looks elegant

Sure hope my friend and her hubby likes the card!

Thank you

I'd like to thank all of you that recently joined my blog...have many surprises in store for you.  We will have a drawing very soon for some gifts!

I am so glad all of you liked my simple Let It Snow Card

I will be doing more cards with my new Cricut Imagine but right now limited since my Gypsy won't hook up yet :-(

Let It Snow - Holiday Card

Let It Snow - Holiday Card

This was just a simple card I started with some 12x12 Christmas Cardstock from DCWV

I then cut the scalloped oval from the generic artwork on the Imagine and inked the edges and stamped the Let It Snow words and Snowman from my Christmas Collection Acrylic Stamps from INKADINKADO

I then attached the oval to the card with pop dots so it would stand out

Added Happy Holidays from one of my acrylic stamps to the inside which also has some really pretty designs from the other side of the paper

I added 3 snowflake embellishments I purchased on ebay from

I bought a lot of really pretty roses from her that will be on future really need to check her stuff out!  I'm not paid to advertise for her just really love her stuff!!!!!!!!

So like I said a simple card but think it is cute..hope you like it!
