Mini just arrived!!

At the door when I opened it sat my little mini in the cold! I didn't even get a knock or anything to tell me it was here. They just drop it off. So I just unpacked it and haven't hooked it up yet so maybe tomorrow I will do a video!! It is super lightweight, super cute!!! I wonder when enough is enough on the amount of machines. I now have 4. But my E2 I won on everydaycricut.com (Thanks Joy and Melanie and Provo Craft!) and then I won this little bugger on Creative Time with me (thanks Emma and Custom Crops!!!) I can't help but be excited to try it out. Here is the pics of my room with the machines. I will take a video on my new craft room since I did move in August. My room is so much bigger, large window so lots of light. Hugs to you all!

 My original Expression , not used as much but still use SCAL with it (sorry Provo Craft but I have lots of carts but once in a while still need to use SCAL.


How cute they look together!

This little bug is so lightweight! I can take this on vacations no problem!

OMG!!! ITS A MINI IN THE FAMILY!!!!

All I can say is WOW....I really wanted a mini but just couldn't justify spending the money on one since I have a few machines but still I wanted this little bug! Then I see I won the grand prize on "Creative Time" blog for the 12 days of Christmas! WOOOOOOTTTTTT WHOOOOOOTTTT I cannot tell you how happy I am!! Now I don't really know where I am going to put it but I will squeeze this little bugger in. I find I don't really use my E2 alot but course its like giving up a finger or something to get rid of machines and i would never get rid of it but I think I will move it down to another area and use the little one to play with it. This one will be nice for traveling. Hubby has wanted to go on a road trip and this way I can stay connected with my crafting as I am traveling so I'm super exciting about this. Now I can leave without feeling like I won't do any crafting when I'm gone.

My imagine messed up so I'm waiting on a cord for it to see if that fixes the problem (honestly I believe it won't but Provo Craft has to try this first) but thankfully its still under warranty so I can get a replacement machine. I was so sad because I haven't had a lick of problems with it since I got it in March. All of a sudden it would print and not cut. This was one machine I didn't think I would use much but its became my favorite machine honestly! Maybe they should consider a mini imagine too! That would be cool! Well Thank you to Emma for the wonderful hope and to my super super super good friend (who knows who she is)  who always encourages me and helps me with my creative and personal issues! You mean the world to me!! I'm so thankful for everything! This is a good christmas present since I wasn't getting one!

Busy Busy Bee

I made a couple new things for a "SPECIAL" DT call and wanted to share them with you all. The first one is a cute photo box that I purchased the cut file from Lori Whitlock's blog. I used Cosmo Cricket papers for this. I cut the girl at 3" from the Imagine Best Friend cart since it was a cosmo cart I knew it would match well with the papers. I flood filled one layer for the face so I could use Peachy Keen's create a critter stamp set. I played around with the RGB codes and have to say I think I matched it pretty good. I used a couple glass pebbles from Handmade Halo. I thought they were so cute. The one just looks so vintage! Popped a button on it. I also used Tim Holtz film strip on it. I love this stuff. Its a little stiff and once you take it out of the tin WATCH OUT! It all uncurls and you will be curling it back up for a while and trying to get it back in the tin. I cut "photos" with sure cuts a lot and used perfect pearls on the sides on the paper.

Now the second project I decided to make a cute sign for my craft room door. I used Tags, Bags, Boxes and more. I cannot remember the size I cut it...sorry! I saved it if you want to know you can email me. I cut the chick from Create a Critter at 2 3/4". I used the cute little chick face from Create a Critter Stamp set. I colored the beak with my copic marker. I used the black to make the eyes a little darker and then used the white jelly pen to do the white area. I used Pebbles Chalk to add pink accents on the "cheeks" both face and behind!! I love the way it turned out, I think it is just funny.
