Imagine - Nation Blog Hop

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be a part of this AMAZING event! There are 11 of us in all presenting projects made with our brand new Cricut Imagines!! You are not going to believe the prizes!!!! Provo Craft has generously donated a GYPSY and SIX Imagine Cartridges!! I am also giving away a set of Pink by Design stamps !! The details for the prizes are at the end of this post.

I am so excited about my Imagine project! I absolutly LOVE my new machine!! I can't believe I was ever on the fence about buying it! I really enjoy being able to make my own patterned paper! A definite PLUS!
I will be posting more projects throughout the weekend made with my Imagine. So keep checking back!





Every single element on this card, except for the letter stickers and the white faux stitching, was cut and printed using the Cricut Imagine! I used the "Imagine More" cartridge and the large rounded square in the background was cut using a preloaded image in the machine. I printed everything on white Papertrey Ink cardstock. I was really impressed with the printing quality. So rich and crisp! I think that little notebook paper piece is my favorite! The artwork is beautiful and I LOVE how everything printed out looking like it had already been sanded and distressed. I only added a little bit of my own distress ink around the edges. I had so much fun making this card!

Now, onto the LOOT! For the GRAND PRIZE of the overall Blog HOP- Provocraft has donated a GYPSY and 6 Imagine Cartridges! So, Sarah w/Pink Cricut will pick the winners (7 in total) out of all the comments on all of the blogs. All you have to do, to be entered into the drawing for the GYPSY and each of the Imagine cartridges is… leave a comment on the blogs in the hop. Each comment = an entry. ONLY 1 comment per BLOG please.

I am personally giving away this FABULOUS BRAND NEW RELEASE "Shopaholic" set of Pink by Design stamps:  
  CLICK HERE  to see this set up close and more sets of Sarah's AWESOME stamp sets!

All you have to do is make sure you are a follower and leave a comment (with your email address) on THIS post. That's it! Your comment will also be entered in the Provo Craft giveaway for the GYPSY and IMAGINE CARTRIDGES!


Here's the HOP lineup:
