And the paper line I used was....

"For Peep's Sake" by Imaginisce. Maybe that was too easy, because just about everyone got it that guessed. So I will throw in an extra goody to the winner fo my give away.

So out of the 17 comments, the winner using was number 15:

Love your card... it's absolutely adorable! The paper used is Tiptoe Through the Tulips in the For Peep's Sake collection. I am a huge fan of Imaginisce, which is where I found your blog. I am now a follower and can't wait to see more of your beautiful creations! I would LOVE LOVE to win the blog candy, thank you so much for the opportunity!

And since I did not specify midnight of what time zone and it was midnight in her time zone, then she was eligible.

So Lori, send me your mailing address by Wednesday, April 13th and I will send your give away to you. And yes, I will throw something extra in there because you guessed right on the paper line. I used the Imaginisce line For Peep's Sake on that card. I just love that line. I wish they would do another Easter/Spring line. This one was really cute!!!

Thanks for playing!!

Hippity, Hoppity Card Challenge

that is the name of this week's card challenge at the Die Cuttin' Diva's card challenge blog.

This week the challenge is all about Easter.  So get out your electronic cutters and we would love to see eggs, bunnies, chicks, crosses, baskets, whatever Easter means to you. Then put your entry on Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post on the Diva's blog.
Here is my card for this particular challenge:

I used the Create with Flourish cartridge and an old paper line by Imaginisce. I had forgotten that I had it. It is called "For Peep's Sake". I just love it and I found a whole stash that I had. I even blinged out the cute little rabbit with my Irock.

Close up of the title

This is a close up of the bunny. Notice I actually stacked the bling to make his eye dimensional. I used a pearl glam rock and then a black jewel and they stuck. I think the Irock is my favorite tool right now.

Bling out eggs in the basket.

I am also entering this card in the monthly Imaginisce challenge on their blog. This month it is titled the Piece it Together challenge.  The entry has to be a hand pieced item on  your project and use over 75% Imaginisce products.

The cartridges that I used are Celebrate with Flourish (Bunny, basket, title), Accent Essentials (scalloped square cut), Plantin Schoolbook (grass).

Products used: Cardstock: Core'dinations cardstock; Patterned Papers: Imaginisce (For Peep's Sake); bling: Irock by Imaginisce; Adhesives: Xyron, Glue Arts & The Sticky Thumb.

That is all for today. Don't forget about the giveaway I am having on my blog here.

Just Imagine with Cricut Expression Class

Do you need to learn about what all the bells and whistles on your Cricut Expression are for? Is your Cricut still in it's box collecting dust? If this sounds like you and you are in Louisiana I am teaching a beginning and intermediate Cricut Expression class at Scrappin Friendzee in Marrero, LA on April 9th.

The first class is from 10AM - 1PM and we will learn about all the functions and modes of this awesome machine. This is a hands on class so you will need to bring your Cricut Expression, a 12x12 Cricut Mat and the Plantin School book and Accent Essential cartridges if you have them.

The second class is from 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM. We will use what we learned in the first class and make a double page birthday layout and a cute little gift box. We will also play with the Imaginisce I-top and I-rock tools.

There will be give aways during the classes and for signing up and paying for the classes you will have a chance at a prize pack of awesome scrapping goodies worth $50.

Here are the projects you will leave with after the second class. We will be using the Simply Charmed Cricut Cartridge so if you have it please bring it. We can share cartridges, but everyone needs their own Cricut mats.

I have also entered this layout in the montly challenge on the Imaginisce blog. This month is a Piece it Together Challenge. You must use 75% Imaginisce products and do a die cut pieced together. Of course I used my trusty Cricut Expression. I just love it.

Please call Ms. Jackie at Scrappin Friendzee to sign up:
Hope to see you there!!!
