Episode 51: Imagine That Blog Hop & Giveaway

Welcome to the Imagine That blog hop!  If you are here from Monica's then you are in the right place.  If this is your first stop and would like to start at the beginning head on over to Sandra's blog.

I'm really excited about this blog hop.  I just got my Imagine machine last week so this forced me to make sure that my machine was up to date and for me to start using it.  And I am loving it.  So far my favorite thing is using the patterns on the Imagine cartridges and combining them with my normal Cricut cartridges. That is what I did for today's project.  I love the softness of it.  Perfect for Spring.  And can I say I'm SO ready for Spring?  We're suppose to have snow again this weekend (I'm in UT).  SO ready even for high 50's/low 60's weather.  Until then, dreaming about it while I make Spring creations will have to do.  :)



I needed to make a Get Well card so I decided to use my Imagine and include it into this hop.  I used the Best Friends Imagine Cart and did the layers with it.  I only used the top portion of the flowers for the flower layer.  I just trimmed it myself.  I like the way it looks.  The card turned out better than I hoped for.


For this blog hop I'm giving away Sassafras Felties.  I chose the ones that reminded me of Spring and Summer.  :)  To be eligible to win please leave 1 comment on this post with a way to get a hold of you.  You do not have to be a follower to win but you're more than welcome to follow if you want.  :)  You have until Monday, March 28th, at 10pm MST, to leave a comment.  I'll announce the winner on Tuesday, March 29th.


There will also be 3 grand prize winners for this hop.  Make sure you leave a comment on each blog that is on this hop to be eligible to win a Peachy Keen Assortment stamp set or a Scrappy Moms Stamp set.

Your next stop is Nadia's blog.  Enjoy the hop!
