Good morning and happy Monday to you! I'm sorry I wasn't around much last week! I spent most of the week working on updating my PC products ugh... First I started with my Gyspy and then from there my Imagine! I also have a new baby to add to my PC family. I caved and bought a E2!! After I updated my Gyspy and plugged it into my Expression it wanted me to update that also. I have the Sure Cuts Alot software so I didn't want to lose it and if I updated I figured PC fixed it so it wouldn't work anymore. Soooo my solution I bought a E2 and I'm keeping the Expression for SCAL. Needless to say, I didn't get a whole lot accomplished last week!!
Today is Monday and that means another Monday Madness...Imagine That challenge!! This week Emma gave us a sketch to go by....
I used the Blossoms Imagine cartridge for my pattern paper. I haven't used this one much but it's got some really pretty paper on it! I really have a hard time sizing with the Imagine (sure wished they would fix that lol) so I broke down and installed the Cricut Craft Room! To me it has a little bit of a learning curve and still trying to figure it all out but I was able to use it enough to get this card made! I used the shapes from the Cricut Craft Room exclusives (I believe that's what it was lol!) Then just filled the shapes with the patterns from the Blossoms cartridge. I used the Flower Shoppe Cartridge for my flower (the paper is also from the Blossoms cartridge). I used Peachy Keen's PKSC-01 January for the cute little angel. I thought she went perfect with the sentiments I used! Speaking of sentiments hee hee I used two of My Creative Time sets!! The sentiment that I used on the Stitched Oval Die is from the This And That set. The other sentiment is from Pain, Pain Go Away. I added some stitches with my brown pen (which right off hand I can't remember the name of eekk sorry!) The sheer ribbon is from my stash and the center of the flower are skittles (well at least that's what they were called way back when they were the "big" thing) I got them at Michael's on clearance and I will NEVER run out of these things lol!! The angel is popped up using Helmar's ZapDot's.
Now that I got my updates caught up (hopefully..saying that with fingers and toes crossed) maybe this week I can actually use them hee hee! I'm real excited to try out my E2 (haven't even had time to do that yet!) Hopefully, everything will run smooth (not like last week lol) and I wont have to make a bazillion calls to Provo Craft! Wish me luck! Now head over to Emma's and see what the other's made using this sketch! I'm sure they will be AWESOME!! Also, don't forget to link up with us at Emma's using your Imagine and the above sketch!! Hugs, Leanne
