Imagine That Blog Hop

Gif Created on Make A Gif


Good Morning Everyone.

So excited that you have joined us for the Imagine That Blog Hop hosted by the super sweet and talented Sandra from 365 Days of Cricut.
You should have just arrived from her blog. If you didn't and would like to start from the beginning, then click HERE.

I was so excited to be part of this hop, not just because I love hops, but because it gave me a really good reason to use my Imagine again!! I have to admit, I haven't used it very much since I got it in January.  So I did all of my updates to the Imagine, the gypsy, linked all of my Imagine carts and started designing my project.  I have to say, it was a lot easier to design my project using the Gypsy.  So here it is...


A Card Box
I have been wanting to make a box for all of my cards for a while now,
I just hadn't had the time.  
I altered a Kelloggs Frosted Flakes cereal box to make this.


All of these cuts were made with the Imagine More Cart except for the 
"Create."  I cut that with Blast Off.


Here it is with some of my cards.  I think later I will go back and make some cute dividers for it.
Hope you all liked it.  I hope I have inspired you to use your Imagine more as well.  It really does make some beautiful things.  I am definitely going to use it more now that
 I am a little more comfortable with it too. 
Now for your next stop, you are hopping over to the amazing Monica.

Be sure to visit with all of our talented ladies and comment on each one for a chance at the Grand Prize given away by Sandra on her blog!! 
The Grand Prize is a Peachy Keen and Scrappy Moms Stamp set!! WooHoo!!

Before you go, I have some delicious candy for you as well!!
I will be giving away this Newly released Cricut Plushy!
Isn't he just adorable!! 
All you have to do is:
1. Be a Follower
2. Leave me a comment
For an extra entry:
3. Post about my giveaway or put it on your sidebar with a second comment letting 
me know you did.
I will pick a winner on Friday, 4/1 using Random.org.
Have a great Weekend everyone and good luck to you!!

  102. What a great idea!!! I just started to make cards and have been "throwing" them in a yucky old bin. You have inspired me to make a much prettier "holding cell" for my homemade treasures!!!! And to think that I can use my Imagine to help me makes it even more appealing!!! Thanks for the inspiration and the wonderful project. Looking forward to the rest of the hop as well.
