For Christmas I got a Cricut Imagine. I've had a little time to play around with it. So I want to share a project with you that I made using the Cricut Imagine.
This month we were challenged to create something for myself or someone else that would give them a fresh clean start. So I created a journal that I can jot down important things from my personal time with God. Our church is doing a 21 day fast in January, so I thought this would be the perfect project I could make to help with a fresh start to 2012.
The label shape was cut from the shapes on the Cricut Imagine. I filled it with a pattern on pg 42 of the Imagine More Cartridge. Then cut it at 1.5". My Imagine wasn't calibrated so it cut the paper alittle off. So to fix it I inked the edges of the label with Charcoal Color Box Inkpad. Then I stamped the hearts and You're my love story on the label. Those stamps are from My Pink Stamper's - From the Heart stamp set.
To cut the pages that looks like lined paper, I used just one of the layers from an image on pg17 of the Imagine More Cartridge. 2 pages would fit on each 12x12 sheet of paper I printed. I cut them at 5"
I stamped sentiments from My Pink Stamper's - More Faithful Saying stamp set on each page of the journal using Old Paper - Tim Holtz Distress Ink, so it would be faint.
The border was cut from pg 26 of the Imagine More Cartridge at 1.7" Then I stitched the diagonal stitches using the We R Memory Keepers - Sew Easy - Zigzag roller. Then sewed the Bakers Twine Tertiary fancy floss from We R Memory Keepers. Finally I stamped Thinking of you today! on the border. That stamp is from My Pink Stamper's Fabulous Phrases stamp set.
For the covers I cut paper close to the size of the inside pages and rounded the corners. I stapled the covers and pages together with a stapler and then adhered the border to the cover to hid the staples.
I'm having so much fun with my Cricut Imagine. It takes plain Cricut cuts to the next level by printing the patterns in it. Its also nice to combine all the layers and print them together. Many of the images from the Imagine More Cartridge will be great to use in my Smash book, in the future. The possibilities are endless.
