I got an Imagine!

I finally jumped on the bandwagon and got myself a Cricut Imagine! I can't say that I love it...(YET!)...I've got to get the calibration perfected first. But...I am loving all that I think I will be able to do with it in the future!

The first thing I had to get for it was the Teresa Collins Black & White pattern cartridge. And...just as I suspected........TC Black & White + Kraft Paper = LOVE!!!!

I'm having so much fun creating my own border strips! This is going to be a great new toy!

Circle Monthly Contest Entry...

This is my entry for the June monthly contest on the Cricut Circle blog. The theme was to make something for a road trip. I love having books along with me on road trips so I decided to make a bookmark. The palm trees and waves are from ZooBalloo, the sun is from Going Places and the bookmark is a tag from George.

Thanks for looking!

My Circle Calling Card!

Here's my calling card I made for the California Circle Meet-Up...held in Rocklin on June 3rd. I used the following cartridges: George and Basic Shapes (3"x3" rounded square), Cricut Everyday (circle logo) and the sun is from the Creative Memories cart Cheerful Season. The clouds were made with a Fiskars punch.
