Imagine More Card

Image
Here is another card that I created using the Imagine More Cards (IMC) Cricut Imagine Cartridge. For the base of the card, I used the Wild Cards Cricut Cartridge. I used the Doily card cut at 5.5 inches. I used the color pallet from the IMC cartridge to match the color of the layers. The images from the IMC were cut at 5 inches.





Here is a side view of the card. You can see the layers that are raised. I used dimensional foam tape to give it a little bit of lift. As always, I added some stickles to make the colors and the design pop.



Arrrgggh Matey!!!

Here is another layout I created using the Life's a Party Cricut Cartridge. This is a super easy layout to create. It's perfect for the beginner scrapbooker. The layers go together quickly and are very easy to layer.

I used the Map images from page 44 in the handbook. I cut the images on the Expression using the Fit-to-Page feature. I cut the base, base + shift, layer, layer + shift. I also used the treasure chest found on page 24. You could even add more cuts from page 34 and page 54.

Imagine That Blog Hop

Image
Hi Everyone. Wow!!! Are you in for a treat. We have a fabulous line-up of ladies who have created some amazing projects with their Cricut Imagine machines. Sandra, our wonderful hostess, recently received her Imagine and thought it would be a great idea to have a hop to showcase some of the things that can be created on the Imagine.

You should have arrived here from Giselle's blog. If you just happened upon my blog, please stay and see what I have created for today's project. If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop, please go to Sandra's site.

My first project is a card made from the Imagine More Cards cartridge. It's a Thank You card. I love the colors on it. To give it more of a designer pattern paper feel, I added my absolute favorite thing, Stickles. This card is cut at 4.5 inches.



My second project is another card made from the Imagine More Cards cartridge. It's a square card that measures at 5.5 by 5.5. The base card is pink cardstock by Stam…

I cut another piece of carstock at 5 by 5 inches to act as a mat. The image was printed and cut from the Snow Angels Cricut Imagine cartridge. I cut …

Lucky Charm Blog Hop

Image
Welcome to my Blog and help me celebrate my BIRTHDAY today by following along in the Lucky Charm Blog Hop. To start at the beginning of the hop you would need to go to  Giselle's blog. This blog hop is all about creating something for the lucky charm in your life. You should have arrived here from Kim's site.

I used the Cricut Imagine today to design my project. I used the Imagine More Cards cartridge. It has tons of images to make all different types of super cute projects.

My card is an A2 sized card. I used the stock images (rectangle sized at 8.5 by 11) located on the Imagine and "flood filled" it with a yellow-green patterned paper. I chose the Good Luck card and I cut out the images at 4 inches. I wanted the card to have a lot of dimension, so I used the layers feature which broke the images into separate layers. I used pop dots or dimensional tape to give the image a lift. I used Diamond Stickles on the background paper to give it a little sparkle.

For my project today, I created a scrapbook layout. This has to be one of the easiest layouts to do. If anyone has not made one before, then I highly recommend the 3 Birds - Life's a Party cartridge. It is one of the newer cartridges that was released. Inside, there are several pages that have layouts. All you need to do is choose the size layout you want. I chose to cut this one out at 8 inches (with the exception of the photo mats). It is su…
