So this will complete my baby gifts post……here is a picture of the grouping I did with the imagine.  Did I mention I LOVE that machine.  You never run out of paper or ideas…..and to be honest, the ink lasts a long time.


I did make a diaper cake…..for those of you who don’t know what a diaper cake is…..its a cake made out of diapers (lots of diapers).  I have to say, it was alot of fun making it.  There are two ways to make it- cloth diapers and real diapers.  I used real diapers.  I don’t think my niece would be too fond of using cloth diapers.  A few cloth diapers make a great burpie cloth but you need a bunch for the cake, I think I used 60 diapers (or some crazy number like that).  So you roll the diapers and wrap with elastics (lots of elastics…lol)  Then you make it into a cake form.  I used blue ribbon and again, printed matching labels with the imagine.

Lastly, I wrapped each tier of the cake (diapers) with receiving blankets that were on her registry.  Soooo cute.

Hope you like this series and it inspires you to “think outside the box”.  Until next time……happy stampin!


So to continue on with my imagine posts…..the next item was made using the imagine and iron on paper……again, her theme was turtles.  So the cartridge is nursery tails.  Yup, those are onsies…..how stinkin cute is that!  I had so much fun doing this. I rolled them and put them in a plastic paint can that he can use as a bank one day.  I made labels with the same theme.   I then made a wall hanging with his name on it, the background paper has dragonflies on it (printed with the imagine).

So until next time……..happy stampin!

Welllll, I’ve been missing in action…..bad me.  Well actually I’ve been having electronic issues for a while…..phone, laptop etc.  So I now have a brand new Iphone4 and my sweetie bought me a toshiba laptop….so this sistah is allllll hooked up.  I’ve been trying to decide if I want to continue with my blog, I feel like time is always limited.  I guess it’s true, the older you get, the faster the time slips away.  So I’m going to give it a go…..once again.  So on to the meat of it!!  My last post I was talking about the new cricut Imagine….well here’s a card I made for my niece, her theme was turtles!  I made a few things to go with the card and lets just say…..I don’t really want to see turtles for a while.  The cartridge I used was nursery tails and the paper is by bazzill.  The neat thing about the imagine is it prints and cuts, therefore, the background paper is dragonfly printed with the imagine.  How cool is that???So until next time……happy stampin!

Well, my sweetie bought me the new cricut imagine for Xmas…..I got it in October at the launch….well, I had to try it out to make sure it works….lol  Well it is FABULOUS!!!  soooooo, I have since then purchased the new pink cricut expression and the gypsy.  I’ve had a few problems with the gypsy (sending it back as we speak) but the expression is fabulous too.  For those that don’t know….the imagine prints AND cuts out designs.  Love it!!  So since october I’ve purchased the expression, the gypsy and about 50 cartridges……have totally been addicted. (shocking, I know)    I’ve made some really neat projects using the cricut and my stamps.  This is a picture of my new imagine…..don’t ya love it!  I can’t wait to bling it up!  Everything needs a little bling…..thanks sweetie…..love you more than life =)

Happy Summer!

Here’s a card I wanted to share with you. I used one of my many, many Magnolia’s….they are so stinkin cute. I colored her with my copics. The background sand and shells are actually from the beach I vacation on. The tiny green glass…..well that is sea glass. I’ve collected sea glass since I could walk. My fondest memory is walking the beach with my mom looking for glass. Now my sweetie and I do it and as he says….I have hawk eyes. I have jars full of glass…..the bigger the piece, the bigger the thrill =) Anyway, this was made for a friends birthday. She loves the beach. Until next time….happy stamping!

Yet another sympathy card. Sure does seem to be happening way more than I want. This one is for my mom’s friend…..I’ve known them my whole life so I guess….they are family. I made the base of the card out of clear cardstock, probably difficult to see but in real life…..stunning. The stamp set, ink and kraft paper is from Papertrey Ink. They have beautiful acrylic stamps, the best I’ve used thus far. I love how they work with all inks, even stampin up ink. Course they have their own fabulous array of colors. My sweetie bought the store out for Christmas….stamps, inks and lots of paper. I was in my glory.
Well hopefully this will end my run of sympathy cards…..never knew I would be making so many (sadly).
Until next time……happy stamping!
