Challenge Card: Hello Kitty Cupcake Birthday Card

I used my Cricut Imagine Yummy Cartridge to make the cupcake shape of the card. I cut out a blank cupcake to attach as the back of the card. I then used one of the Imagine built in patterns and matching Yummy Paper for the inside scalloped circle that supports the pop up Hello Kitty figure and joins the front and back of the card. The Hello Kitty figure on the front of the card and the pop up were cut out on the Imagine using backgrounds from the Yummy Imagine cartridge and the Hello Kitty cartridge. I put glitter on the flowers and the cupcake toppings to jazz it up a little bit. I hope you like it! HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROBYN AT MY PINK STAMPER!
Here is how I popped up the inside of the card.

Awesome Church Service

I feel led to tell you about church today. We had such an awesome service. One way I love to worship God is through music. The Praise team introduced new music to the church and I really felt God moving and stirring in peoples hearts. One song phrase that sticks with me from today is "We are the change the world is waiting for". Our Pastor constantly says we need to be the change by sharing what God has done in our lives. By being servants to God by being there for his people. GOD is so awesome. Thank you God for just being! For the lives you are changing and the love you have for us. IF YOU WANT FEEL FREE TO SHARE WITH OTHERS WHO VISIT HOW GOD HAS CHANGED YOUR LIFE. Just post in on the comments.
Me.... He brought me out of a very rough childhood. I had to raise my siblings because my parents where never around. I turned to things I shouldn't have but God was always there and he answered my prayers. I would sit out on my roof and pray to him when I was hurting and He would always comforted me. He also answered my prayers by bringing people into my life that taught me about God's love. I am now happily married with two kids and feel so blessed to have them in my life. The things of the past are just that, the past. Thank you God for being there for me. I pray that you are there for others who need you.! Thanks for reading.

Butterfly Thank You for Pink Stamper Blog Hop

I really like the team Robyn chose for her design team. They are a talented group of people. I really enjoyed getting to HOP from one project to the next seeing how different from each other but talented they are. Well here is my project. The pink background was made on the Cricut Imagine. I cut the Trim with a Martha Stewart Christmas flower punch. The butterflies where left over from a wedding I worked at.

Make A Wish

This card was completely made with the Cricut Imagine and one piece of brown ribbon. I used the Yummy Cartridge for all of the card pieces. I then pop dotted the cut outs and placed them on the card. I took a copper glitter pen and stitched the outside of the card and the paper background I printed from the imagine using one of the built in imagine shapes. Going out blog hopping now. Checking out all the cute cards and such people are making. I love other peoples blogs!

My New Craft Room

Well here it is so far. We just got done building the counter tops but still have another wall shelving unit and a peg board section to put up. I also want to build a cabinet undet the counter for the printer. We also need to stain it all the same color as the existing shelves. I am so excited with what we have so far! Gone are the numerous tables and desks that filled the room.  I wanted to make curtains for the room and to my surprize I found material that matched the photo storage boxes I bought over a year ago. I just got done making them today. Hope you like it so far.

MPS Design Team Challange

Robyn at My Pink Stamper is having a challange to select two people for her design team. The challange had to include the colors PINK, GREEN and BROWN. I thought I would put my Cricut Imagine to good use. I took different elements from the Nursery Tails Cartridge and broke them down into my own layout. There are so many awesome projects people have submitted for the challange that with only two slots open I have a slim chance. Never hurts to try though does it. People are so creative. I already have a few favorites myself. To submit your own project for the challange go to My Pink Stampers website for details.

How to Print A Sentiment Anywhere on A Card or Page Using The Cricut Ima...

I found this video today from The Paper Boutique on you tube and thought I would share it with you. What a great idea. Thanks Paper Boutique! I have no affiliation with the creator but this is one of the best ideas for the Imagine I have seen.
