I mentioned Monday that I would show you how I made my embellishments for my layout of Little Honey. Well, I've finally invested in a Circut...The Circut Imagine. After watching the demonstration at the Craft and Hobby Association Show and actually having some hands on time I realized out of all the Circuts the Imagine has the greatest potential for me to be able to create something new and different.
HSN said it would arrive on the 24th. Plenty of time to warn...tell...my husband. I checked the status on Thursday and it just said UPS had billed HSN for the pickup. I checked the status Friday to see if it had a "real" date. The tracking said it had left the dock in West Columbia and was headed for my house. Before noon my Circut Imagine was on one of my studio tables. I didn't have the heart to unpack it until I told my husband. So I patiently waited until he came home from work.
After several false starts I finally told Jim what I purchased and that it had arrived. He did not bat an eye but said "okay." He did say, "I thought you didn't want a Circut." Oh, but this is not just any Circut it is the Imagine! So all said and done it was my birthday present and I used it for the first time creating LH's first layout. What a better birthday than I could imagine!
My mother made the little crocheted piece underneath the large flower. I used Craft Dots from Glue Dots® Adhesives to adhere all the pieces together. They are larger than the minis and very strong for heavier embellishments. They are my all time favorite.
