I had purchased this PaperTrey Ink "Birthday Bash Sentiments" stamp set a while back, and just never got around to using it! When I found a super cute card on the Crafting With Katie blog I wanted to try and make the card using my Imagine and a cute little owl from the Imagine More cartridge.
But then my Imagine decided to stop working. After sending it in for replacement and receiving a USED Imagine back, I called up Provo Craft, and politely informed them that I had purchased a new machine from the very beginning and would be happy to send this "used" one back for a brand new one in return. They required pictures of all the scratches all over the machine and the tore up cartridge case. And within a day, I had received another return label and had shipped it off again. Finally I received a new machine (that had been opened already). Provo Craft said that they open and update the machines BEFORE they send them out now because there were so many problems with them. Strange, how they had just updated it two days prior...but it still required an update from me too. Hmmm. But the customer service was super fast and helpful, I have a new machine that works fantastic. And even the calibration is better than my original machine! I guess I shouldn't complain!
Anyway, so I had to use my CE2 to make this birthday card for my little sister. What am I saying, I HAD to use the E2? I decided to use it. It is just one more fantastic machine from Provo Craft!
