Blog Candy!! The reason you came, right?!! Hope you did come for some inspiration too! These ladies are so talented! I'm giving away the MS Stamp Around the Page with 8 stamp set and 6 inks. I have this set and loved it so much I bought 1 to give to my friend and 1 for this hop!! All you have to do is leave a comment with contact info. You don't have to be a follower, but I'd love it if you became 1! I will draw using Monday! Good luck!

 Here's my Imagine project:
Of course, I made these with the Imagine, this was from All Wrapped Up! IMHO, if you have an Imagine you NEED this cart! its like TBBM! Maybe better, because you don't have to choose your colors and layout different pages or colors! I did cut this in layers. I like the layered look so you KNOW its handmade! The bag is from Imagine Greeting Cards Inside and Out cart, flood filled with same pattern and layered the topnote on that also. I made 4 cards for the set to add to the bag. The flowers on the bag are from Tuesday morning by Making Memories.  The ribbons are from Walmart. Couldn't decide if I liked the ribbon at the top or the bottom so I did both and didn't glue down. Its pretty tight. The embossing on the front is done with Stampendous Gold. I made these for a raffle for the Lions Club! the ladies there all love all my card sets. Everybody now buys more tickets!! Woohoo! They want me to sell them and I may after a few more have been won! Makes the club more money!! Then I'll make some! Its really been fun! Most of the time I make a box with my Cameo but wanted to use a cricut cut with the Imagine.  I was also able to do all this in CCR!!! Love CCR when it works with Imagine!! A match made in heaven. Would like it to work the same way on my Gyspy, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen!! (the main reason I bought the Imagine :(  )
