One more imagine card for you!


I can't say I haven't had my fair share of headaches updating this beast of a machine from Provo Craft.  But, all in all it is very very simple to use, and if you are looking for a quick card or two to make, you can make several in 30 minutes.  This card took about 10 minutes to make.  It is from the Imagine More Cards cartridge.  I have yet to manage to get the dreaded "update" to work, so I can't use my original carts- but you can only backfill images with them anyways, so I don't see much need for it yet.  I think when Cricut Craft Room launches I will try again!

First Cricut Imagine Card!

Well, this is a trifold card.  My first!  It took a few times of cutting and folding to get it just right.  Our wonderful nanny Kelley had her tonsils out, so I wanted to make something special for her.  I used a little bit of liquid glass on the whale water spout to make it shine.  Some brads, flowers, and foam tape to complete the card.  The paper is DCWV Green Stack - my favorite!

Introducing Country Life Cartridge...

I think all my friends are "cool chicks" so it will be hard to decide who this card will be sent to.  I will have to narrow it down to one of my "Country" friends.  Oh how I miss those days of riding horses and jumping off those hay bails!  This card was inspired by the cricut magazine.  If you do not subscribe to these- run and do so NOW!  They have so many inspiring projects.  If you want to try one out first, you can order off ebay for about $7 each (plus $4 shipping).  Well worth the money!  The Card is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 and the chick is cut at 4 inches. Have fun!  :)
