Imaginisce Animal Crackers Release Party

Monday, January 17, 2011

Happy Monday! It's Martin Luther King day and many of us have a 3 day weekend....nice! I am so excited to share Imaginisce's newest release with you! We're kicking off a week long reveal party at the Imaginisce blog. You can win some fabulous prizes! So let's get started!!

Today we are focusing on cards so here's 3 cards I created using the new collection

For the label I used my Cricut Expression and the Accent Essentials cart. I also used the new Martha Stewart crown punch around the page punch. Isn't our little mustached friend cute!

Next for this card I used my i-top tool to make the coordinating brads and the i-rock to add some bling. I also used the Spellbinders small label dies and my Spellbinders Grand Calibur.

Finally this card I created with the Cricut Cake's cart...Birthday Cakes. I love that you can use the Cricut Cake cartridges in your Expression!  I also added some Stickles for definition and  stamped a banner across the Big Top for a fabulous birthday party invite idea.

Join us all week long as we celebrate Animal Crackers with GIVEAWAYS at the Imaginisce blog. Be sure and head over there to see the other Design Team members fabulous cards today!

Hip Hop Itty Bitty style and a very special birthday wish!

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Hello Hip Hoppers! Welcome to my's my favorite day of the week and I'm sharin some fun things here today. I hope you grabbed your cup of joe before you started the Hip Hop at Unity's blog today cause we have a little something cooked up for our fearless leader, Angela. Today is her birthday and we're creating cards to wish her a very very happy birthday! So without further ado, I present my card to you Angela!

Now I'm not tellin how I got my hands on GCD Studio's new Material Girl collection but I promise you this, my card is one of a kind and created with all the love I have in my heart for this special birthday girl. I hope you have an amazing birthday Angela! I've already popped this little card in the mail so it's on it's way right to you. Just remember when you open it, jumping out is a big birthday hug!
Now onto my Hip Hop itty bitty

I was so happy to get to create with this itty bitty because my family loves to vacation in Kauai and this stamp was perfect to scrap up a layout in which I mashed up a bunch of different pics of our vacations on the island.

Yes that is a pic of a VERY pregnant me. I loved that trip the most. It was a very romantic time for Mathew and I. I loved taking the kids a year after Lily was born. Scott loved Kauai too!
Supplies: Jillibean Soup's Pasta Fagioli collection, Unity Stamp Co itty bitty Aloha!, K&Co Travel 3D stickers and letter stickers, Copic markers, Maya Road kraft tag.

Let's Hip Hop to the Moon and Back...

Wednesday, January 5, 2011've just arrived from AJ's blog. If you didn't start at the Unity blog please go there right now. You don't want to miss what Angela has prepared for this week's Hip Hop! It's a brand new year and a brand new KOTM!!


I keep telling you've got to subscribe to Unity's KOTM! To the Moon and back is the first KOTM of 2011 and what a way to kick off the new year! These images are the cutest ever! I seriously can't name a favorite kit cause they are all so darned cute!
Oh and did I mention...

 Oh yes there are even Perks!

This kit is loaded with images and sentiments, sentiments and more sentiments...but I really love the friendship images this month. We all have those special friends who know us so well. Who lift us up when we are feeling so low and tell it to us straight when we need a dose of reality. I am really lucky to have so many amazing crafty friends (love you all) and even luckier that one lives only 20 mins from me. Yes I am talkin about Heidi. I love her so! She makes me full belly laugh and she reminds me to be true to myself and my family. Friends like her come along once in a lifetime. Here's a fun pic from last year of us at the So You Think You Can Dance Season Finale Taping

I used my Fancy Pants paper from this month's Paper Posies kit for this layout, Prima Flowers, and images from Unity Stamp Co. January's KOTM. How about that journaling stamp! Love this one!! You may have never used stamps on your layouts before but it's so easy! They really add something special to your scrapbooking.
I can hardly wait to make some super cute cards with this kit too! All those sentiments oh my!

Now hop on over to my girl Maren...

Something new with Imaginisce's Garden Party

Tuesday, January 4, 2011

Hello friends! Just a quick post today to share a layout I created with Imaginisce's newest collection Garden Party. It's a beautiful spring collection that is shipping now.

I love the paper and punch outs in this collection. It was easy to create this fun layout of my daughter at Farmer's Market a few years ago. I also used our i-rock tool to add some of our pearl glam rocks.

We're having a release party for our Winter Release of Animal Crackers beginning the 17th of January. You know what that means...lots of chances for you to win some of this adorable collection!!! Stay tuned for more information here at my blog...

CHA is just a few weeks away and all of my crafty out of town friends will be coming to LA!!! I can hardly wait to connect with all of them and have a peek at what's in store for us from all my favorite manufacturers. I'll be working at the My Little Shoebox and Imaginisce booths so stop by and say hi if you are coming!

Thanks for making my blog a part of your day. Have a wonderfully crafty day!

Happy New Year and Thanks CupCards To Go!

Saturday, January 1, 2011

Happy New Year friends! I can't believe it's Jan 1st and hubby's birthday is Monday! My dad also celebrates a birthday on January 12th so I've already got two masculine cards to make this weekend.
I wanted to show you all of the cards I made for my Guest Designer feature over at Cupcards To Go. A warm thanks to Sonda for having me as a Guest for December!
I'd have to give her card kit a big 5 stars rating since not only do you get more than enough goodies to create with but the pre-made card stock that comes is really heavy and top notch. This kit is a great value for those that are researching kit clubs!


 Loved this Lawn Fawn stamp!



I really had fun creating with this kit! 

So I really love going to the movies on the holidays. This year on Thanksgiving I went to the movies with one of my besties, Tami and I spent many Christmas days when I was a single girl at the movies with my Mom. The most memorable had to be when we went to see Maid in Manhattan with J-LO. What a crazy day...I broke up with an old boyfriend that day. Thank goodness for my Mom. She has always been my bestest friend and I am so thankful for her! So I'm off to see a movie today just little ol me this time! Enjoy your New Years Day!
