Imagine Card

Hello Bloggers,

I hope everyone has started their Christmas shopping. I have a few more people & I'll be done soon. Thankfully, because I still have a lot of Christmas projects I still need to get done. This weekend I played with my Cricut Imagine, challenge from My Pink Stamper was to create a card using your Imagine. I'm not thrilled with my Imagine, or if I need to do any updates? I'm not comfortable with the time it takes to pick out my project get it adjusted on my screen in order to make the cuts. The more I work with it the more comfortable I'll get it's just a matter of time. I am glad I got my imagine, it cuts beautifully and I'm sure once I get more familiar with my imagine I'll grow to love it as much as I love my expression.
Today’s card was created with the Best Friends art cartridge. The only thing that wasn't printed from the cartridge was the black cardstock. I used a bunch of pop dots for dimension & a memory making flower brad in the middle of the flower. Ribbon from Hobby lobby sachet & Pearl from Paper Studio. Thanks for stopping by.

Winter Circle card & Envelope

This weekend I created a second card using my wildcard cartridge & Design studio.
I hide all the scallops & score/tick marks. Ooh this was my first time using my sewing machine on my card! Not perfect. But it will do. Practice makes perfect.
I’d like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Crafty Calendar Challenge - Snowflakes
Digital Tuesday Challenge – #83 Frame
Delightful Sketches – Stitching
Raise the Bar – #43 “Lets see those Curves”

Card Recipe:
Paper: AC Patterned Paper Christmas pack
Stamp: Whismy Santa Stampabilities
Snowflakes cut with Winter Wonderland cartridge. Cut with Imagine…love the way the Imagine cuts the details out without tearing your paper.
Glitter: Martha Stewart

Late Sunday post

This weekend I finally get to play with my Cricut Imagine. So far I’m not that impressed with it.
The only cartridges I like so far are the ones that came with the machine…& the ones that are out aren’t that impressive to me. I’m sure if I could weld and hide the things I want to remove it would make the machine more appealing. That would mean I need to buy a gypsy. Right now they are having way too many problems with both systems. I do think it’s a keeper. I was too eager…& should have waited…but I do like it..& I’m sure they’ll come out with more carts I will be eager to buy.
My first tag…ever was created with my Imagine. I’m going to send this card to my Grandparents & include a gift card in back of the tag. I’m also going to tell her to use it as a bookmark too.
I mad the little pocket from the wildcard cartridge. I just turned it upside down & cut the bottom off. I’d like to enter my card in the following challenges:

YNS CHALLENGE – Bookmark it
