Christmas Treat Bags

Hi all. Today I'm sharing the treat bags I made for my grandsons preschool class and treat bags for his teacher and her aids. 

I used my new Imagine that I got for black Friday at Wal-mart ($187). It is not functioning properly though. I called Provocraft and they had me update it, but still it isn't right. It will randomly just reboot itself. Plus the ink smears when it gets to the bottom of the mat. Very frustrating. I may be returning it to Wal-mart if Provocraft can't help me. :-( Anyway, I was able to print and cut some images and I like how they turned out so I am hoping they help me.

Spinning Cupcake Card

Hi everyone, hope you're having a good week. I'm sharing today a spinning cupcake card I made for a friends birthday next week. The cupcake spins and is double sided. I've seen spinning cards before and I really wanted to try it for myself. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be and it was fun to make! I am looking forward to making more spinning cards and experimenting with different folds for the card base too. The gypsy definitely comes in handy for this project!

I am going to enter this into the Challenge Me Monday #73 "Piece of Cake" challenge. This challenge is to use a cupcake (or other baked good) on your project.

If Friends Were Flowers, I'd Pick You

Hi everybody! I want to share a friendship card that I made. I used the Everyday Pop-up Cards cartridge for the inside flower pot. I cut the flowers out five times to get different colors for the flower heads and stem. It's probably just me, but I think the pop-ups on this cartridge are very confusing! I really like them, but I'm not sure how many other pop-ups from this cartridge I will be using. Anyway, I think this one turned out cute. Hope you like it!
