As you know I have a few favorite companies, DCWV, Imaginisce, Provo Craft, Spellbinders and Prima. Well I belong to their blogs and facebook pages because they are always giving away free stuff and who doesn't want to get things for free. So this past week Imaginisce has had a release party for one of their new collections called Berrylicious and I was selected as Day 3 winner!! This is a beautiful fun, and bright line and I can't wait to see it irl! The projects that their DT made was incredible and so inspired, they completely made me want spring NOW! LOL but then again I am sure we are all tired of old man winter and would love to see Green Grass and Brightly coloured flowers.
Ok on to the next topic...My most favourite Blogger is Pinky and I read her blog before anyone else. My day is not complete until I see what she has created to share with the world. She also has some amazing giveaways on her blog, in fact I won one last month, a subscription to Stash to Treasure. It has video tutorials and classes on it. Cost $5/month for the classes which are about 6 classes long. Pinky was hosting the class for February and she did an retro altered clock. You can also buy the kits to follow along with the video classes.
She is again having a giveway and this time it is the new Imaginisce D-stressing tool, which is cordless. So click on the link and check her out.

Veronica is all about Princess right now and I thought that a chart that she could put Princess stickers on for everything she went to the potty.
Now onto a description of the project. Using a piece of cardboard 9 1/2" x 8" I layered several pieces of CS by Imaginisce. I used the new Enchanted line and the older Fairest of Them All. I cut a strip of striped cs from Fairest of Them All then used my Martha Stewart boarder punch to punch it out. I cut a 9 1/2 x 3 strip from the Enchanted cs, cut a 3 x 8 strip of matching cs from Fairest of Them all. First I glued down the Enchanted cs, next along the side I adhered the matching cs from Fairest of Them all and then using Scor-tape I put the striped cs along the top.
To cover the remaining adhesive from the Scor-tape I covered it with blue fine glitter as you can see here in the close up. Using a Die Cut from my stash I wrote her name using Waterfall Stickles, put the Crown sticker from Fairest of Them All above her name and used a rhinestone and my i-Rock for the dot above the i. I used some pink lace from my stash to make a boarder around the white grid paper, this is to hid the additional sheets on the chart. Using my i-Rock I added blue studs to the lace.
Here I layered several flowers from Princess Posies which goes with the Fairest of Them All collection and using a star dust brad affixed it to the Chart. And yes I have a lot of this collection left when it comes to embellishments, but very little of the CS. I LOVE Imaginisce little girl lines, they are so princessy and fun.
I am very happy with how this turned out and my DD cant wait to start using it. She has told me its "pretty mommy" and that is all that is important to me! Thanks for looking.

I printed off the template on white paper then traced it onto my cs. Used here is double sided cs by K&Company Seasonal stack. On the back is a 3D dragonfly in pastel pinks and purples. The Flag, which moves, is outlined in Cotton Candy Stickles.
Using Scor-tape I adhered the Ivory Lace then added Pink chunky glitter to cover the remaining tape. The fabric flowers, paper flowers and butterfly are glued with Aleene's Tacky glue. Then added some pink rhinestones to the lower flourish and a little pink bow to the front above the pull.
I really enjoyed making this but found it a little fussy putting it together. If you want perfection have fun because no matter how I bended the cs or made sure everything was aligned it still leans a little to the left. Thanks for looking.
