~Cricut Imagine & Imaginisce Project~

Good morning my crafty friends♥

You know I have been playing with my Cricut Imagine these last
couple weeks, but all the work I have done with it was for DT work.
I have had some requests to do some blog projects with it, so
this week I am trying to focus on my Cricut Imagine work to share
some fun projects that I make with it.

This is the first one, it is a card I made.
The entire background is white paper that I printed and cut
on with the Imagine with the Best Friends cartridge.
The Imagine prints out your project then it cuts it out making your
own customized die cuts. Also you can layer the cut and pop everything
out just like those 3D stickers you buy in the store.

It's a very Cosmo Cricket inspired cartridge and really fun!
I used the new Garden Party die cuts, mesh brad , my irock for the gems and
one of the Imaginisce Roly Poly Posies flower and the new
ibond tool...man that ibond makes those flowers come together quick.
And you know on the twine I used the Glue Arts Ribbon Adhesive,
I was worried it would not hold on twine but guess what? It does! YEA!
Every project from 6 months ago has fallen apart so I am extremely thankful
I found Glue Arts!! The entire card was made with the
Extreme Glue and Glue Glider Pro too.
I think I used every tool I have on this card LOL The background piece
is actually a layered piece that had a title, but with the Imagine you can
break up the entire cut into layers OR print it up into one piece.
I chose to only print and first 3 layers and leave the words out.

I am going to tell you I was not sure how I would like it, but I love
how much more artsy the Imagine feels!!! It is more down my alley
and it's so fun to play with. So far I really like it but I only have 2 cartridges,
so we will see as they progress and as I collect more. But I love it!

I am going to TRY to do a video but I am sick right now
and my voice is awful plus I am coughing, so it will have to wait
a couple days, maybe through Christmas :)

Ok I am off to make breakfast, we have a big night of shopping ahead for
Christmas Eve snack night and baking to do for Santa and the boys.

How is your holiday going? Are you ready and done shopping?
Tomorrow I will post some pictures of my tree and the house.
I am done shopping but have a few things to wrap and just the food
left to shop for, so not too bad. I am excited!

~Thanks for stopping by~
~Happy Holidays from my family to yours~

This is a real beauty, love all the layers you used and the wire scroll edge looks gorgeous.
So sorry you are sick, we are the same in this house myself and my youngest have been sick for over a week now it just doesn't want to go.
The last present arrived this morning and my food shopping is due to be delivered this evening and that's it all done.
