Bearable Gift Set

I found out I have to leave for HQ today for a meeting out of town.  I popped this on my daughter who I am to stay with. She just got in from a camping trip in TN.  I made her and her dog (my grandbaby) these gifts and card to thank them for the imposition.

I made her tiny refridgerator magnets in the papers to match using the scraps.  The box is made from All Wrapped Up Doll Box, but I cashed the blue gingham patterned paper and used it so  it all would match.  Every thing else is from Better Together which is another Imagine cartridge, Times like these where I have no time, I really appreciate my Imagine. It all only took one hour.

Hot Diggity Dog! It's Summer

My niece posted this pic of one of her dogs on facebook. I just loved the photo.  It reminded me of how glad all of us are that Summer has finally come.

I used the Hopscotch Imagine cartridge to make the papers, grabbed the fonts for the titles off of the internet and the flowers were made from my Silhouette.  The sun and flourish behind the pic are Imagine cartridges as well, Better Together and Country Carnival.  The Medallion flower is from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Die called Flower Medallions.   The button on the medallion was made from the I-Top Tool using the button maker.  I distressed the photo matt using the Zutter Distress It All

Big D

This is my Father in Law. His real name is Dallas, but everyone calls him Big D.  He loves antique cars, farm equipment, racing and his family.  He is a  real man's man.  But every now and then a soft little something comes out of him that makes him amazing, whether it is giving a job or money to someone down on his luck, knowing he will never be repaid,  or showing up at events just because you want him to be there.  In the old days he used to brew moonshine and ran it all over the state to keep his family going in what was then a depressed area.  The man never went to school past third grade yet he is worth millions.  He has more common sense than anyone I know, besides my husband.  He was the Best Man at our wedding.  Dallas is definitely Big D in mind and, always will be.  I really love and admire the man.  You just gotta' love "Big D".

I used the Teresa Collins Baby Boutique cartridge for the papers, intial, crown and for the journal tag.  I just used a shape that comes with the imagine.  I used Elegant Edges for the blue damask paper and Spring Holiday Cards for the frame.  The flower medallion, branches with flowers and Jalopy are Sizzix dies.  The bling is from Imaginesce's I-Rock Tool set.

This is a picture of my niece, Amanda.  She is a very pretty girl so I wanted a pretty layout for it. I used Heirloom for the background paper and American Alphabet for her initial.  The flowers and butterflies came from Lori's Garden, another Cricut Imagine cartridge. The flourish were cut from a sizzix die.  The label was from Teresa Collins Baby Boutique.  I don't think this scrap really did her justice for the photo was awesome, but we do what we can. 


My husband brought me this humongous picture to scrap. I just loved it. It is my husband, my step-son and grandson (The step-son is his Uncle)  This was a rare photo.  I didn't know how to embellish the page since it was so large, but I think the page still looks decorated in spite of the photo size.  I used the Tim Holtz Medallion Flower Die and Cricut's Country Carnival for the title.  The buttons came from my stash.

It's for You

I made this card using the Imagine More Cards cartridge.  I don't remember where I saw the verbage for the card, but found it hilarious.  This has been on my to do list for a while now, so I am glad it is finally in my stash of cards.

Note Card

I was really tired last night but wanted to throw together a card.  I decided to make a note card because I never seem to have one when I need one.  I think I need to make me a set, which I will post later.  This was made from the All Wrapped Up Imagine cartridge.

Fathers Day Card

I lifted this from Edna at Cricut Critterz Imagination.  I had some old twine around and I loved how she used it for the back ground on Kraft paper.  The designs are from Imagine More.  There a lot of things you can do with the pieces and parts of designs on the Imagine Cartridge.  Edna is good at making you think outside of the box.
