Cricut Imagine
Since the launch of the Cricut Imagine at CHA and then its release through HSN in America I knew straight away I had to have one of these. I had preordered it from Photo Contintental at Mt Gravatt here in Brisbane and it arrived last Thursday. So Thursday evening after work I went and got it. Then on Friday after the cartridges for the machine arrived at the store I went back and purchased some of the cartridges. I received an early Christmas present from my sister who was with me. She bought me a pattern cartridge Audrey for the Imagine. My husband also gave me a gift voucher and I used it to purchase other cartridges for this machine. A very special THANK YOU to my husband and sister. I love my presents.

EK success edger punch Musical Symphony (music notes)
I used Print Shop 22 to create and print the
sentiment on the frame.
I used Vera Color 55 Umber to ink around
the frame,bird and leaves.
How to Print Sentiment onto the Frame using a printer
Create your Sentiment using a word document programme
or in this case I used Print Shop 22.
Measure the required size to fit the frame.
For this card I used
2 1/2 inch W x 2 inch D text box.
I typed the sentiment then printed it onto an A4 sheet of paper.
Adhere the frame over the printed words. ( I used low tac double
sided tape for this process so it is easy to remove the frame from the A4 sheet.)
Use a light box or other light source to check the alignment
of the print before placing theA4 sheet back into the printer.
Once you are happy with the alignment place the A 4
sheet of paper back into the printer and click print.
Remove the frame from the sheet of paper.
This process can be used to print words or sentiments on any
size or shape of card you require by adjusting the print size as required.

eCraft by Craftwell

To make this card I used the eCraft machine and the ecraftShop Pro computer programm. The image of the sailboat was in the font file on my computer. Not sure were I downloaded it from. To make the cut I placed the shape onto the virtual mat on the computer screen and adjusted the size to fit the card. I cut the sail boat two times (pink and orange coloured paper). Then I used the Shadow/blackout feature and cut out the image using black cardstock. I also cut the image out on white card stock using the shadow/blackout feature. I trimmed around the black cut-out to use as the base of the card. This cut looks like a stencil. Then I glued it onto the front of a white card. I adhered the sailboat pieces onto the white shadow/blackout cuts. Then adhered the pieces into the stencil. To finish the card I adhered ribbon under the sailboat. Rounded the corners of the card. Used a white gel pen to do faux stiching around the edge of the card. Cut a small piece of black card and stamped 'happy birthday' from Lizzie anne designs Little Bits rubber stamp set using Versa Color 80 White.

Bo Bunny Scrapbook Kit
I purchased this kit from Arnolds Scrapbook store at Rothwell. I've made the front cover to suit the photos I want to put into this album. The difference is the title which I created using Print Shop 22. I've printed the title on overhead projector transparency film using an inkjet printer. Then used split pins to attach the title to a piece of card stock. I used Pritt Gel glue to adhere the title to the Acrylic Front Cover.
