Card using Paper Princess Stamp Set! - Episode 173

Good morning everyone!!! I just couldn't wait to show you this card!!!  "I" think it is SOOOO CUTE!  The image is from a stamp set called "Toteally Tess" from Stampin up! I've had it for a LOOOONG time so it "May" be retired, I'm NOT sure!  I thought my Stamp set called "Paper Princess" would match up just PERFECTLY w/it!! Don't you think so??? hehehehe!;) I was actually just playing around w/this card lastnight & this is what I came up with! I didn't make it on camera, but I did do a video showing everything I used for it! Here it is!;)

Thank you SOOO MUCH for stopping by!! I will see you back here tomorrow for a blog hop & a CUTE Spring project!;) Have a FABULOUS day!;)

My Teacher Rocks! ~ Imagine Nation Monday - Episode 172

Good Morning & welcome to another long awaited "Imagine Nation Monday"! I have definitely been out of the loop, but it's time for me to get back to my usual routine! All I have to say is that I seriously NEED to start using my Imagine more! It's funny because I almost forgot how to use some of the features on it:( Not Good:(  So, Sarah & I decided that since the both of us are a little busy right now that we were going to hold off on the challenges for right now! BUT, it doesn't mean that you don't have to play along w/us! I will have a Mr.Linky below this post so you can have the opportunity to challenge yourselves & use your Imagine's as well! With that said, you can create ANYTHING you want, just as long as it's a "Square" card! EASY PEASY!;) The cut off will be on Sunday, March 13th! I can't wait to see what all of you come up with! I hope you enjoy my card! I used the "Hopscotch" & the "Kate's Kitchen" cartridges for my card! I also used one of my NEWEST stamp releases called "My Teacher Rocks"! My newest release are available for purchase now & will ship out next week! You can see them all HERE!

As you can see, I added some stickles to my card to finish her off!;)
Thank you SOOOOO MUCH for stopping by! See ya back here tomorrow for a SUPER DUPER CUTE card!;)   (Well, I think so!) hehehehe!;)

As you can see, I added a few minor details to my card! I decided to use my I-Rock & put a little black bling on his head piece & I thought that this card was screaming for some twine! So I use the cream color twine from Papertrey Inc.! I hope you like my CUTE card!!

Anthony & I are 100% well, Baby Aaron is toward the end of his flu & now my hubby just started!!! I think it's safe to say that Angel & Scrappy (my furry babies) are going to be just fine!;) Well, I couldn't go on w/this day w/o at least posting something! Of course I haven't been able to make anything much this year for Valentine's day, but I'd thought I would show you a couple of cute item's I've made in the past "A Blast From the Past"! Okay, this 1st picture is a little treat purse I had made & wrapped chocolate nuggets to go on the inside! I don't have a link to a video of this because I made this BEFORE I started to make videos! This is one of my FAVORITE Valentine projects!

This next one is a simple one that I just wrapped some pattern paper around a box of sweethearts candy! SUPER SIMPLE for my son's classroom a few years back!

Here are a set of 6 3x3 cards I had made for the teachers also, a few years back!

I hope you enjoyed my "Blast from the Past" Valentine projects! Now, on to my winner from my "Stamptastic Blog Hop"! chose the lucky winner of the copy of this 'Exclusive" Cricut Magazine....... Drum Roll Please..........................

Last post for CHA! A class Sarah & I sponsored for Provo! -Episode 163

Happy Saturday everybody! This is my LAST post from CHA! Sarah & I were asked by Jinger Adams w/Provocraft to sponsor a class @ CHA! Of course, we accepted! We had a BLAST meeting everyone & I have to admit, I was NERVOUS before I got on stage, but everybody made me feel comfortable! We had 25 students! Here is a video of the class~ the class was 1 1/2 hours long, but I tried my best to edit it down as much as I could for ALL OF YOU!;) I ALSO wanted to give a HUGE shout out to Miss Mandie Wade for being a sweetheart & used my video camera & recorded the ENTIRE class for us! THANK YOU MISS MANDIE!!!!;)

Here are some pics from the class!
 That is the little 12x12 tote everyone made in the class! They used Sarahs & My stamps for their project! They ALL had a gypsy & got to weld their names in vinyl! Can I admit that I NEVER cut vinyl before? Kristy Day was an AWESOME teacher!! She is SOOOO SWEET!

Here is Sweet Mandie video'd the class for us! THANK YOU Mandie!;)

There were 25 ladies who took our class, but all the pics I took didn't all come out good:(

Later on that day, we were at the WESTCOTT booth & they offered champagne to all of us before they gave away an I-Pad, I-Pod and some gift cards! Wait until you see what we have in store for you from Westcott! They are a GREAT company!;) P.S. I was holding an extra champagne for Kathy!;)

Here, we had to hit Starbucks (which was right across the street from our hotel) one last time before we headed to the airport! Of course our cricut family joined us!;)

Here is my little cricut in the cab heading to the airport to go "HOME SWEET HOME"!!!!
Here he is waving good bye to L.A.!;)
He CAN NOT wait to get home to his family in Stockton California!;)

Here is Little Mr. Cricut reunited w/his Brothers!;) It was SOOO GREAT to be back home SAFE & w/my BEAUTIFUL family!

Well, I hope you all enjoyed our CHA adventures! I was so happy to share it all with you!;) Have a FABULOUS Saturday & DON'T forget to tune into Erin Lee's livestream tonight to hear her AWESOME NEWS! You DON'T want to miss this!;)
