First I share with you WORD COLLAGE:  
 In my laundry room on the wall I have this cute lil sign I created using Red Vinyl and created on my Gypsy and expression.  CUT OUT AT 11.28w X 10.76h.   I have more to add to this BUT am awaiting another cartridge to arrive to complete...

PRINCESS PARTY EVENT cartridge:  I wanted a spin on an event cartridge as in using it mainly for party planning - Here I used it for Home decor in my granddaughters room that they have in our home.

Using the Imagine Vinyl  - I used the blade and cuts at regular speeds and it cut so much nicer to work with. (only do this with the IMAGINE VINYL).
Cut at  5.4in   I hung it on the wall and added a large clear heart rhinestone with glossy essentials.  to show that you can spice up your wall art as well.

I love this font...  actually this word..     Cut out at 6.5 in.

different rhinestones and that adding Stickles to the different areas that are open and around the heart added a little extra Sparkle to this awesome crown.

adding a new product I received from my friend Erica at My Cricut Craft room and so loving these are: LIQUID PEARLS colors: white opal & petal pink    I added to the points of the crown  and then used stickles to the rest of the crown.
here to the flowers I used white opal in middle and petal pink for flower

YES, I know it looks crooked as I see it in the picture BUT I had to wait till everything is dry before moving it around ..again.....     the princesses represent my 3 granddaughters.....  literally I have a redhead age 8, brown hair age 10 and the last princess looks like my youngest grand baby girl who is 3...  I bought these at the Dollar store where everything is 1$
Both  of these images are on 2 separate walls in the room..

ROBOT PARTY event cartridge:
creating a card using a little twist  of cutting the same image out 2x at different sizes.  (keep the cuts not used for another project or a 2nd smaller card).  cut on the Imagine.
1.5 sentiment happy Birthday
4.5 frame (smaller inside frame)
5.5 (outside frame) 
cuttlebug folder from Robotz and inked over with the orange ink pad 
Imagine cartridge for the color of the paper is: Blast Off

outlined using a black marker around the tools.
Please head over to Janet's blog for more creativity!!  

I hope you will leave a comment - I read them all :)  If you take my blinkie to your blog and/or sign up for my e-mails - please let me know and then i will make sure that I take yours to mine as well and sign up too.

  15. Thanks for the inspiration. I actually have the robot party cartridge and have never used it. That card inspired me. I have some paper with screws all over it. That can make a manly card rather than kiddy card.

  16. Great projects. Love what you did with the vinyl.

  17. Great projects. Love the robot card.

  18. Such great vinyl projects...I still have to try the printable vinyl with my Imagine. I really love the card, I have a hard time making boy cards.
