Cricut Imagine Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to our Cricut Imagine blog hop! We have 11 bloggers ready to share our ideas with you for using your Cricut Imagine (or to entice you into buying one). You can start at any blog in the hop, then visit each one until you complete the circle and wind up back where you started. If you get lost at any time, I have a list at the bottom of this post with all of the participants. Several of us are offering blog candy giveaways, so make sure you enter each one separately.

So, if you're starting here, or coming from Jeannie’s Blog , you're on the right track! And when you're done here, you'll move along to Lori’s Blog and see what ideas she has for us. Now, on to my Imagine creations:


This was literally the first project I have created with my Imagine! Sure, I've made a few cuts to play but I don't really have a spot in my Scrap Room for her yet so she has been relegated to my dining room table, when there's room for her. I decided that I would create some layered wall hangings for my 19 month old daughter's room! The Nursery Tales cartridge has such beautiful images and colors that it is my favorite cartridge!


I think the most difficult part of my project was narrowing it down to which 4 images I wanted to use! They are all so stinking cute!!! I cut all of the images at 5.9" to conserve paper.


I used almost an entire sheet up Pop Up Dots to put this together. Some of the cuts are layered 3 or 4 dots high. I've decided that someone needs to come up with a fast dispenser of the squares for me!


The 8" x 8" frames I bought in a 4 pack at Michael's on sale for $9.99 and then I had a coupon for and extra 25% off my frames, making the 4 only $7.50. What a steal! I just wish that I had thought to look for a lighter colored frame. I may go back and paint these white at some point. Because of all of the layering, I decided to put these on top of the glass. Plus when we redecorate in a year or so I can easily change what's in them!


Here's the grouping hanging in her room! I am so thrilled with how they came out!!! And a certain 4 1/2 year old big sister has decided that she needs some art for her room too!

Now, before you hop away, let's talk BLOG CANDY! If you're not already a follower of my blog, I would appreciate it if you would become a follower. All comments on this post will be entered in a drawing to win a Glue Glider Pro! Please be sure that I have a way to contact you if you are the winner...

Ok, so now we're through here, go check out the AMAZING project that Lori has posted on her blog! An inspiring project with NO PAPER! You've got to see it to believe it...

Here's the list in case you get lost along the way:
