A Sneak at JustRite's February Release!

I love the beginning of a new year........when all of my favorite companies come out with all of their new products! JustRite is releasing quite a few new sets in February and one of them is called Friendship Blooms. What I love is that they have teamed up with Spellbinders and have come out with a die that coordinates with this set! How cool is that?
My card has lots of white space and of course....GLITTER! I used papers from Papertrey Ink and Girls Paperie. The white panel was embossed using Papertrey Ink's Book Print Impression Plate. The sentiment was stamped in Ripe Avocado by Papertrey Ink. The circles and scallops were die cut using Spellbinder's dies. I wanted a bit of glitter at the bottom, so I used my Red Tacky Tape and glitter to add a bit of extra sparkle. (Who doesn't like extra sparkle?) ; )
I love adding depth by using the negative space......and foam squares!
Be sure to visit the other designer's fabulous projects!!!

Provo Craft's Brand New Product!!

Provo Craft is launching a brand spankin' new product on January 20th on HSN! It is the Yudu CardShop! It is fun and easy to use! Screen print your own cards, invitations, stationery, gift tags, and more in just minutes. The Yudu CardShop Machine comes with everything you need to finish your first project including a pre-burned screen, squeegee, adhesive mat, black ink, three-color ink pad and a quick-start guide. And let me tell ya, the screens are each cuter than the next!

I chose the Valentine Love screen since Valentine's Day is right around the corner! I used it with Versamark and a dauber and then sprinkled glittery embossing powder right over it! I dressed it up with some Jenni Bowlin journaling spots, pearls, a pretty bow, button, and stick pins.
I popped up the main image panel with foam squares to make room for my ribbon underneath! Plus it provides a bit of depth and dimension.
Be sure to check out the demo video on the Yudu CardShop Website and look for more fun projects with this machine on HSN on January 20th, 2011. I have another card coming soon created with this fun machine!! :)

Using my Imagine!!!

Good morning to you! It has been a whirlwind of a week! My son neglected to tell me that his 8th grade pictures were today, I had to find out on my own when I called the school last Friday. This meant getting a haircut and going shopping for a shirt and tie, pants, shoes....the whole shebang! He also took his high school entrance exam on Saturday. On top of that Cort has had practices for cheerleading for the big game on Saturday. So this has meant more running and chasing! It is really a good thing I only had two children! LOL!

My card today uses the Imagine machine. I absolutely am in love with this machine! I love the sweet images and the layers that you can create with it. For this card I used the "Yummy" cartridge. I love personalizing my images by adding special touches to them. For instance, I used liquid applique and glitter for the steam. I tied my sentiment using some of my dyed seam binding. I used a bit of vintage lace and a couple of my Spellbinders to "ground" the image. The girlfriend stamp is by Crafty Secrets.
OH! and I added a bit of glossy accents to the coffee too! : )
Thank you for all the sweet comments about Cort's cheerleading video. It truly warms my heart to be able to share these special moments with you!
Have a wonderful Wednesday! The speed bump to Friday! ; )
