A Sneak Peek...Imagine

Well I did it. I purchased the Imagine at the HSN launch on September 14th. I didn't feel any buyers remorse but at the same time I really couldn't justify buying it. But it is here and I LOVE IT! I love just putting one piece of white paper down on the mat and just cutting multiple colors and making sure I have placed my scraps in the right spot so that they cut correctly.

Oh don't get me wrong, I will still use my E, especially since my Gypsy Girl does not work with my Imagine, yet. And I can't cut thick chipboard with my's a printing issue. But I was really excited about one of the carts I received...Best friends. It is the cutest cart ever!

So I used it to cut my twin and used StoryBook to cut the title for my new blog header. I haven't been able to take a proper picture of it. I need to get proper lighting. So until then, here is a sneak peek.

Here comes the...

Wow has it been this long since I have posted? I have been busy in my other world, running. I am training for a 60 mile walk benefiting breast cancer. I'll post more about that later. But I am here to show you my latest creation: wedding invitations. I have never done them before and I was quite nervous but I think that came out great.

I learned alot about wedding invitations these past few months. I found some great places to get paper. One is The Paper Source and the other is California Paper Goods. I highly recommend both of them. The Paper Source opened a store in Houston so I will probably use them more...however I probably spend more in gas than I would maybe I need to rething that idea. I got swatch books from both of them for the future. I plan to make more of these. I don't know for whom but hopefully someone soon. They were fun to make.

I also lined the inner envelopes with paper. Did you know there were A7 and A7.5 envelopes? I didn't until now.

Now I need to figure out how to make menus and programs. I can't wait!
