Okay, I caved and bought the Imagine during the sale at Cricut.com ... wow, what took me so long!? I am so going to enjoy this machine.
This is my first Imagine project. After I set up the machine, and did the calibration and the update, I wanted to see how it would work with the original Cricut cartridges. I grabbed the cartridge that I had sitting on the counter and picked an image ... this is what I came up with. This image is from the Country Life cartridge and the patterns are from the Imagine More cartridge. I used a Peachy Keen stamp to add the smiley face on the sun. The background paper and the cardstock for the card base were printed using the Hopscotch cartridge. (It's hard to tell from the picture, but the color of the card base matches the color of the clouds.) To finish, I added the green cardstock, punched with a Martha Stewart border punch, a double-sided ribbon and a little bling. Quick, easy and fun.
I spent an afternoon playing with my Imagine and made several cards. I'll post the others over the next few days.
Thanks for stopping by ...
