Imagine Birthday Princesses!


By an act of divine intervention (well, really our movers but there must have been a higher power involved...) my Cricut Expression died on the day of the HSN Imagine release. Really, I had to do it. My household would not function without an electronic die cutter. Period. :)

If you have yet to sneak a peek at one of these machines, you probably want to close your eyes! It is sooooo cool! It prints images then cuts them out to perfection! Admittedly, had my Expression not bit the dust, I would not have shelled out the money for it. But I am so glad I did. :)

On short notice, I was asked to make cards for 2 little birthday princesses. I decided to use the Imagine so I would not have to color anything. I chose the images, told it to cut, and viola! I just matched up the papers and had these done in like 30 minutes total. (The stickles actually took longer to dry than it did to make the cards!)

Rumor has it the princesses loved them...or maybe it was just the sugar high after the cake!

Supplies used are just Stampin UP paper, sentiment & linen thread, buttons, stickles and the Best Friends cartridge for my Imagine.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Very cute cards. I know what you mean aobut every house needing a die cut machine. I have a cricut, a cuttlebug, a slice, and will probably be getting a Big Shot soon. I think I also need to find a group to kick this habit, lol. Nah, I'd go crazy without it.

OH you lucky girl, you!! Those cards are so fun & cute....love how bright & cheerful they are. And my wee girl is ooo'ing & ahhh'ing over the tiara. lol (My best friend is here visiting & when she got here, we girl came out of her room with a tiara, scepter, heart ring, Disney princess bracelet, and purple fairy wings on her back.........she accessorized just for her 'Auntie's' visit! So, you can probably see why she can spot a tiara from across the room! hahaha)

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! :>:>

Super cute cards, they turned out perfectly. So sorry to hear that your cricut died, but at least it was on the day of the HSN release, right!??.

I have to start using my circut again, I've only played with it a few times and hubby isn't too happy because of how expensive it was.
