You Make My "Heart" Sing! SOUS Heart Challenge

 Well hello everyone and Happy Friday! I sure hope you all have been doing good, nothing exciting going on here. Actually kind of boring, lol!
Well we have another challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches Die Cut Challenge this week and the challenge is "HEART"! Well I don't know if you all know that I have an Imagine, well I do and I don't use it near enough to justify spending the money on it so I think I got my use out of it this week, lol! I made a whole Heart Mini with it! I also used the Sweethearts cartridge too. That is what the heart shape mini is made out of cut at 5 1/2". The Imagine cartridge I used is the Better Together and the little tag and music paper heart on the front is from the Imagine More Cartridge.
After printing everything out and flipped the backside hearts (so they line up perfectly) then glued them together then I punched a hole with my Crop A Dile and added some grommets for some added enforcement and a ring to hold it together, tied some ribbon on the ring for some fun. Added some jump rings to the tag (with some added bling of course) added a little prima flower with a bling center and a piece of ribbon! Everything is inked with some Quick Quotes Mocha Mama Chalk Ink (love this stuff!) Added some foam tape for some pop and dimension also!
Doesn't it just "Make Your Heart Sing"!? It sure does mine, lol! 
 Pages 1 & 2
Added some bling, a little envelope, (one of the extras on the BT cart) with a rolled handmade flower, a cute pink doily and more foam strips for some pop and dimension. Love these two print papers too, so Cute! 
 Pages 3 & 4
The heart doilies are from the Sweethearts cart and added for photos. Added some more bling, a piece of ribbon and some older prima flowers I had a jar of that I haven't used in a L O N G time with some bling centers and all popped again.
 Pages 5 & 6
Love these print papers too. Another doily some more flowers and bling and a ribbon bow and everything is popped again.
 Pages 7 & 8
Love the little flower, so whimsical, more dimension, flowers and bling.
 Pages 9 & 10
Love Blue and Yellow together so fresh and cheery! More doilies, flowers, bling and dimension
Last Page
And as I said last page with a little frame to add a little saying to whom I give this too! Not sure who yet, or maybe I'll just keep it, lol!

Well hope you enjoyed my full Imagine project! It was fun, actually went pretty fast, but I still like my Expression, love to manipulate paper and when I use my Design Studio I don't waste as much paper as I feel I do with the Imagine but I have to say I wasn't stumped with picking papers, I always have the hardest time with patterned papers, I don't like to use my "pretty papers" (do you all do that too, lol?) and it also sizes the print size down to fit the size you pick for your image to be cut, (does that make sense) check out page 3 & 5 from above to see an example and that's a nice feature I think. I tried to fit everything as close as I could to use less paper but I couldn't manipulate it enough but I'll fiddle with it more and maybe learn a few more things, lol! If anyone knows of anyone who has some pointers I would greatly appreciate the link.
Now remember to enter the challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches Die Cut challenge this week, the theme is "Heart" so anything to do with a Heart and link up with the Link at the bottom of the post. We would love to see your "Heart"!
Have a Great weekend, we have Birthday party to go to this weekend for some good friends little boy, he's turning 3 so it should be fun! How about you, any fun plans for the weekend?

Well ((Hugs)) and Take Care,
