My first cuts with the Imagine!

Wow! I love my Imagine!
I was sure skeptical after all I read on the cricut boards.. I was sure doubting my purchase.
It finally did come. Hooray. It wasn't damaged. Hooray! I turned it on and it worked. Hooray!
No carts were damaged. Hooray. I did all updates from the carts to the latest on the Provo craft website.. fast and easy no problem. Hooray!
Whew. I went and bought some 12 x12 white cardstock yesterday at Michael's and it was on sale. Hooray! I just can't stop saying HOORAY! hahahahh
I was using my Georgia Pacific 8.5 x 11 cardstock that I got from Walmart.. but I couldn't cut as much as I wanted on it. LOL However...I'll still use it cuz its like 100 pieces of paper!
I did accidentally PRINT ON THE MAT.. cuz I was using that small sized paper and thought I had resized my little piece smaller but it wasn't small enough. I quickly ran warm water over it and it just washed right off and my my re-stickied up as well. I saw that tip on someone else's website. Sorry I forget who. I also did the Advanced calibration. I saw a video on Pink Cricut's website.  Thank you Ms. Sarah!
So now I will upload some pics.
Here comes some pics of just cutting stuff out:

Yes I tried them both out. Nursery Tails and Imagine more cuts. Oh and that shape was a basic shape on the machine.. and I filled it with something from the New cart. I loved how that turned out.

I love that the bonus content has a whole background paper there! Just precious.

Ok now time to stick in Mini-Monsters. Yep.. I cut it and thought bummer I don't like that.. so then I remembered something about flood filling. It was so easy to do! 

It was simple and easy to plug in carts and just start pushing away. I like the load last feature so I can use the next available spot on my paper. I love seeing it visually on the screen. That helps for sure! I've sent off today for my free cart for being a Cricut Circle Member and will receive Lori's Garden. That sure looks pretty. My next two carts that I will purchase.. is JT and Country Carnival!

Thanks for looking.
Have a great day and Happy Scrappn!

My birthday card for my niece Lynsday

My niece Lynsday Faye Grace Witcher turned 2 yesterday.
I was able to attend her birthday party today and here's a pic of her and the card I made.

I love my Peachy Keen Stamps.. I also used my new Pink by Design stamps. The title set of stamps is Simply Everything from the Pink by Design. It worked perfectly. I played with my Copic markers to color the little guy. I did used stickles on the birds's legs.. and I used my Sakura gelly roll on the scalloped edges. Oh yeah and I used my Cuttlebug folders.. the Happy Birthday and my new folder set Measure by Measure.. the stars were for the border. I used my Cricut Cartridge Just Because.
We had a good time at her party.

Throwback Thursday time again

Over at My Creative Time -- http://www.creativetimeforme.com/ --
Emma is back and doing her Throwback Thursday challenge a day early this time.
The challenge was to use the Paisley Cartridge (or any other older one) to create a Back to School Project of your choice.

I was excited to try again. I couldn't wait to use one of my embossing folders from the Asian bundle. Yes I redeemed my cricut rewards and got the bundle for free. whew hew. I also couldn't wait to bust open the box of CottageCutz dies with Peachy Keen Stamps! This was gonna be my first experience with box these products. Way cool. I chose Happy Lil Frog and I used a little Copic yellow marker on the crown AND I used my way cool IROCK to adorn his crown. Those rocks were the perfect size. I'm happy to say my LSS is carrying IRock however they haven't gotten in any of the stencil stuff. No worries there because OH MY CRAFTS has met my IROCK needs!

I'll attach the two pics of my work for the challenge. I was happy to participate. I am eagerly awaiting Ms. Emma's DVD which should be arriving by the end of the month! whew hew.

That's it for now.
and HappyScrappn!

Testing the circle

Lets see if it works here.

My First Scrapbook Blog

Hi all.
My name is Monica and I love to scrap.
I have several Cricut Carts and have DS but haven't played with it much.
I am happy to say I became a charter member of the Cricut Circle.
I love to learn and share what I learn.
I think I like buying as much as making.
I can't wait to put all these pretty buttons on my blog.
I'm not sure what all I will post but we'll see what happens.
Thanks for visiting.
All the best and God Bless.
