Otter Say Hello and Happy New Year!!



Hello it's Helen here to share a little card I've made using one of the brand new sets that have just been launched on the store website.  As soon as I saw this little guy I just couldn't resist making a card with him!

I've used the brand new 'Otter Say Hello' set which you can find here on the store website - this is what you get in the set:


As you can see, I've used one of the main images plus one of the sentiments.

Make sure you keep an eye out for a new release giveaway coming soon with the opportunity to win of the great new sets in the store!

Wishing everyone a peaceful and safe New Year and I'll be back again next year!

Who's the 'Cherry on Top' for December?

Hello everyone!  I hope that you are enjoying the holiday season!  It's time to announce our "Cherry on Top" awardee from those who played in our DOTM challenge during the month of December!  The winner receives this cute blog badge and a digi set of his or her choice!  


Each month, our DT takes a turn to pick who our 'Cherry on Top' awardee will be.  As we are going in alphabetical order, it is Linda's turn!  Here is what she had to say about her Top Pick...
"I love the layout with that little hint of red, really allows the sweet image to pop! And those rhinestone studded snowflakes make the whole design totally "paw"-some!!"


Congratulations Debi B.! 
 Please feel free to display the blog award at the top of our post and then find your gift code from Lisa D., our Cherry on Top Coordinator, in your inbox soon!

Happy (almost) New Year Freebie

It's almost a new year!  I hope this year has been a great one for you, and if not, it's my hope & prayer that 2016 will bless your socks off!  

Thank you to all our blog visitors!!  This cow is part of a new bundle that will be available in our shop very soon, called "Party 'til the Cows Come Home"  There are currently 3 digis in the set.  I remember when my girls were little we would make weekly trips to the library and check out books that had cassette tapes, sing-a-longs etc.  I don't know why, but one song still runs through my head: "When cows come home, at the end of the day, they swish their tales, in a cow-like way"... anywho, They can be used for Birthday parties, retirement, and an array of other occasions.  This one I put a New Year Sentiment with, but you can easily create your own sentiment for it. 

Freebie is now expired (01/12/2016)
You can purchase the new bundle with sentiments & papers at a discounted price!


Looking forward to the new year with all of you!! :)  

Thanks so much for visiting!

New Challenges Coming for 2016!!

Welcome back!!  I hope your Christmas is going wonderfully!  

Many of you have probably noticed that badge in our sidebar that says "New Challenge Starts February 2016" and so I thought I'd share now what that's all about :) ... some great new things on the horizon!   

First of all, sadly, I have to tell you that this month is our last "Digi of the Month" challenge.  But good news!!  Starting in February, we will begin a new challenge where players can use ANY DIGI from ANY VENDOR for a chance to win some free digis to Imagine That! digis by Kris™ shop!   

Now, I know this can be disappointing news for our past challenge players who received a free digi every month they played along.  However, I promise I will reward you from time to time with freebies, especially those who use Imagine That! digis by Kris in our new challenges!!  Lisa, with the rest of our team, is coming up with some fun & fabulous challenge themes to offer each month.  And you'll be happy to know that we'll be drawing at least two winners from every challenge.  We will still have our "Cherry on Top" award, chosen by our Design Team for those outstanding entries, and we will also have at least one Random Drawing, so anyone can win! 
  • If either winner used an Imagine That! digis by Kris image, they will win a $15.00 gift code for the shop, and a prize of a $6.00 gift code will go to a winner if they did not use an Imagine That! digi.  As we get more players in the challenge, we will have more random drawings!!  :)  Doesn't that sound fun?!!  

Now, you might be wondering why we're waiting til February to start our new challenge?  It's because I gave my team the option of taking December off to celebrate the Holidays with family etc.   So we wanted to give them time to get their bearings and start creating for the new challenge.  However!!  For the month of JANUARY.... we are having a Coloring Contest all month long.  You may use any digi you'd like, does not have to be from my store, and it does not have to be made into a card or other project.  Just simply color an image using any medium (Copics, colored pencils, markers, etc.) and show us your best coloring.  Prizes will be awarded to the winners!!  Winners will also have an opportunity to be a Guest Designer at Imagine That! for 3 months, if they choose to take the offer (includes over $30 worth of digis)

I hope you'll join us in these new challenges, starting in less than a week!!  Here is a badge you can display on your blog if you'd like to help us spread the word.... (please do!)  *Ü*

The World Was Blessed at Christmas


Yesterday Kris shared a beautiful freebie with us all and I couldn't resist making a last minute Christmas card with it!

You can find the freebie image here.

I printed the image on to white card and then cut it out before matting it on to some snowflake paper and layering with gold and spotted burgundy paper.

Wishing everyone a happy and safe Christmas - I hope you all have a wonderful time!

A Purr-fect Birthday


 Being the sweet and generous person that she is, Kris has provided a beautiful freebie HERE so be sure and save it! I finally made it into my craft room late this afternoon and decided to stop making Christmas cards!! After all, today is Christmas Eve Eve! I am in need of several birthday cards so I printed up this cute Birthday Kitty, pairing her up with the Cat Pack Digi Papers. You know me, I like the clean and simple style with very little embellishments.

I would like to take this moment to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas! May it be filled with love and laughter, family and friends...and that very special present you asked Santa for under the tree (I'll let you know next week if I got mine!)!!!  

               

The World Was Blessed at Christmas Freebie

I know it's prolly a li'l late for this freebie, but I made this up for the inside of a card I needed and thought I'd share it with you all too.  You can even cut it out and use as a tag on a gift if you'd like!  :)  Merry Christmas and may you all experience Love, Joy, and Peace this holiday season.  xkris

Christmas Tags

Well hello to you all on this lovely Tuesday afternoon.  Just three more sleeps to Christmas. Woo hoo!

Today I'm popping in to share a couple of tags that I made.  Check them out...


My images come from two different sets. I used the adorable Christmas Chloe image from the Baking Chloe set and I also used the Christmas Peppermint jar from the Jars of Cheer set.

I also used some of Kris' digi papers.  For the tag on the left, I used a paper from the Christmas Flakes set. For the tag on the right, I used a paper from the Treat Stand set.

It's the most wonderful time of year

Well here in Wisconsin, we only have a 15% of having a white Christmas this year.  However, they say not to worry since the snow will still come.  That's what I fear that we will be dumped on in January and February and have a late spring.  Not that we have any control over that.  We only have a few days left until Christmas.  Here is a card that I came up with the Winter Flakes digi papers and the Eskimo Friends Kit.  
Have a very Merry Christmas and stay warm!

Sweet Birthday Wishes


Happy Wednesday! Only 9 more days till Christmas...YIKES!! A show of hands of those who are ready...yeah, me either!! I am getting a head start on the late December birthdays I have to get cards ready for though! Like this one, using the adorable set Snowing Cupcakes. A snowman juggling sweet cupcakes, what's not to love!!! I stenciled a light background, something that's not easy for me as I'm rather heavy handed with my sponging. Thanks so much for stopping by today. Be sure and head over to the Imagine That...Digis by Kris store for any last minute Christmas needs. She's got lots of adorableness there with instant downloads. I also want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Customer Gallery is Back!

Happy Monday crafters!! :)  Did you know we have a Customer Gallery?  You can link up any new creation using Imagine That! digis by Kris images.  The new incentive for linking up has changed... instead of a random drawing, I'm going to automatically give each person a $6.00 gift code after you've linked up 10 of your own projects!!  We have a couple customers who are very close to that now, so keep an eye out and keep em coming!! :)  We LOVE to see what you all create with our digis!  

Take a look at Gloria's most recent creation in the gallery using our Owl with Robin set.
