Sunday Afternoon FUN!

It seems like it's been forever since I've been in my loft crafting.  It really has only been a week, but last Sunday I was only doing odds and ends and today I finished up several projects.  Doing this always makes me feel like I've really accomplished something.  I needed to send out several thank you notes this week to my friends.  I had a procedure over a week ago and the results where wonderful, but I was very worried.  My wonderful support staff of family and friends carried me through.  I made this card entirely on my Imagine.  I needed something quick and easy and this fit the bill.  I did cut an "extra" turtle out so I could pop it up.  I used a My Creative Time image for the inside of my card which left me a lot of room to write out my note.  I love Emma's stamps!  First of all they are clear so it's easy to place them where you want them.  Also they stamp beautiful and clean up like a dream.  You can always tell they are the high quality stamps and I appreciate her talent so much!

Then I needed to put these goody bags together for my office staff.  I had cut out all the parts last week, but I picked up the candy at Sam's club on Saturday so I could finish them.

Sorry for the first image being on it's side!  For some reason it's not letting me rotate the image.  Anyway this is another project completed with my Imagine.  The candy image was cut from Yummy and then I sprayed two pieces of 12x12 paper with coordinating paper that I used to wrap around the Nugget candy pieces.  Cut these @ 1x3 inch strips and they work great.  I also used one of the "stock" images on the Imagine for the dotted background piece.  I LOVE this image.  I used a 3 1/2 inch bag to place the three candy pieces inside and the black topper was cut at 4 x 3.25.  This is a great size and as you can see the basket looks great for my treat tomorrow at work.  I had just gotten in Emma's (My Creative Time) Thank you set, so the You're appreciated was a great saying for what I wanted.  Since I was on a roll, I made the next batch and placed them in the freezer.  Here's how they came out.

Again, all done on the Imgine, so a very simply project.  Instead of "spraying" a page of paper for the pinkish color, I used one of my image stamps to make the other paper.  I really like the four nuggets in the bag better!  And on most days, I think my staff may need 4 pieces of chocolate!

I needed a birthday card for a male and I always struggle with these, however this one came out cute.  Again, I used my Imagine and My Pink Stamper's stamps for the sentiment.  Robyn also carries a great line of stamps and I am mostly using her stamps and Emma's exclusively when I make cards.
Then to finish up (see I told you I got a lot done!) are a couple more cards that I needed.

Again I used My Creative Time stamps for both of these cards.  I do like to sponge the edges of my images and my layers but I'm not sure that shows up a lot.  It just seems to add dimension.

I must say it would really be difficult for me to make a card without my Cuttlebug.  As you can see, I used it on almost all my cards today.  I do not have a TON of embossing folders but I have ones that I like and use all the time.  Pop dots are a must I think when you are making cards.  Get yourself some great sentiment stamps like Emma and Robyn create and you will be good to go!  Notice the green image behind the apples is the same one that I used on the goody bags.  I just made it a little bigger and a different color.  This truly is a great background.

I hope your Sunday afternoon was as great as mine.  Have a blessed week and hopefully I will be back soon.
