Oh god!! I'm another year older.. yes, yesterday was my birthday, the BIG 40.. oh no!! LOLmaybe that only means I will be a bit wiser and more creative the coming year.. one can only hope, right ?..LOL and with that said.. our sweet Leah over at SOUS has been busy creating some super cute and original sketches for us girls and this is my take on her sketch:
I had so much fun playing with my Cricut Imagine.. One of the best and cleverest features I have to say is being able to combine your old cartridges with the Imagine cartridges.. meaning, you can now join the prints off of the imagine cartridge onto your original cartridges.. What I did was, cut the sun image from my Doodlcharms cartridge, but added the background print off of the Imagine More cartridge..this way, everything matches..Wooo Hooo, go Provocraft!! I did go through like 6 sheets of white cardstock though..LOL
and before I forget, here is the sketch leah made for us girls...
and for some close ups of the layout:
The basket I also cut using the Doodlcharms cartridge, added the background print and then the strawberries are cut using the Country Life cartridge.. all cut using white cardstock and my Cricut Imagine..
The title I cut the same way, using my Country Life Cartridge.. First printing the color onto the white cardstock and then cutting it all out with my Imagine
This is a close up of the stamping I did on the side and then added some Distressed stickle dots to it.. love the way it came out.. :)
and another close up of my darling Amber.. She was a little chunky monkey back then...LOL You'd never believe she was a preemie and only weighed 4 lbs 12oz when she was born..
