****Imagine Nation Giveaways were Chosen and are now CLOSED

Welcome to the First Ever Imagine Nation Blog Hop!! πŸ™‚

We have lots of fun projects lined up for you today– and lots of great prizes to be won!! Β  I cannot believe the amazing ladies, we have lined up for this special 2-day long event! πŸ™‚ Β They are all completely fabulous– and are now all in love with their Imagine machines!

For my Imagine project–I couldn’t decide what to do…so I did a little bit of everything! πŸ™‚

Imagine Fall Wreath using Imagine More and Celebrating with Flourishes cartridge

Yes– you can use your regular cartridges, with your Imagine, and bring color and patterns to the layers!! It’s SO fun!!

The Giving Thanks is from the Flourishes cartridge, and I chose colors from the Imagine More pallette.

The flowers are from the Imagine More cartridge. Β I added ribbon, gold accents and fall colored ribbon to complete the wreath project!

Next, since it is National Card Making Day– I had to make a quick card! πŸ™‚

I used the Celebrating with Flourishes and the Imagine More cartridge again for this one. Β The stamp is from Pink by Design Bountiful Blessings

Here’s my last project, and maybe my favorite!

For this box, I cut out 5- 5×5 scalloped squares from the Imagine More cartridge, and used all the same patterns as I used in the other projects.

The leaves are from Celebrating with Flourishes and the patterns are from the Imagine More cartridge.

The stamped sentiment is from Pink by Design Bountiful Blessings Stamp Set
