My Pink Stamper Imagine Challenge

I made my first layout "Something to crow about" with the Imagine using my favorite cart, Imagine More. I had some goofy pics of my dad and brother that I wanted to use and it all came together.

Create a Critter Cards

Create a Critter is now one of my favorite Cricut cartridges. Before I had the cart I thought it would have limited use for me since there isn't any kids in my family, but it turns out that the adults like the cute critters! My Pink Stampers Punnylicious stamp set coordinates wonderfully with the cuts. Love her stuff! I've been challenging myself to use things that normally sit untouched like ribbon so please bear with me!

30th Birthday Card

Tomorrow is my brother's 30th birthday. We celebrated yesterday, so I'm going to go ahead and post the card I made him.

I used Core'dinations paper and embossed it with the Star Cuttlebug folder and sanded it to show the gray core. Then I used Indie Art for the bomb. I'm not sure which cart I used for the numbers. I should really write the details down. Anyway, my brother liked the card so that's all that matters.

Magnet Board

I covered a metal sheet with fun paper and layered the word create. It's a colorful addition to my scraproom where I can put little notes.

Happy Fall

I wanted to try the Imagine with a Cricut Cart so I pulled out 3 Birds that I haven't used before and quickly was able to make a card with patterns from the Imagine More cart. I inked some of the edges to give it a more hands on look.

So far, I'm really liking the Imagine, but I don't think I'll be using their patterened paper designs for everything. I like picking out paper, but it will be really nice to use the RGB when I'm out of a coordinating paper.

Simple Gift Tag with the Imagine

When I came back from running errands at lunch my Imagine was waiting for me at the front door. I carefully carried her inside and tried not to think about her until I was done with work. Then I tore into the box like my life depended on it!

I love the style of the Imagine More cart so that was my first print and cut. I used the little notecard and then cut out the branch and the bird as well. I love how you can print and cut specific layers and I can't wait to really dig in tonight and play.

Imagine Where Are You?

It feels like I'm a kid waiting for Christmas morning. I can't wait for the Cricut Imagine to be delivered. I keep seeing amazing projects on the Cricut Circle and Cricut Messageboard. Every time I hear a truck I run to the front window to see if Big Brown is headed my way.

Gift Tags

Here's some simple gift tags that I made for my mom. In real life the ribbon is more of a olive green than the bright green that shows up in the photo. I used a stamp set from Paper Trey Ink, SU ink, and some paper and ribbon from my stash.
