First Imagine Card!

Hi Everyone!  I'm so excited!!!  I got the Imagine.  Woo Hoo!  :)  I had a few technical glitches that were a bit frustrating but I found work arounds and fixed it.  YAY!!!!  So here is my first card.  I used a regular cartridge - B is for Boy and mixed it with a pattern paper Imagine cartridge - Hopscotch.  When I saw this cloud paper I knew I had to use it for my first project.  So I created the project around the cloud paper.  :)  The paper on the plane is the same as the mat.  I love how the Imagine sizes down the designer paper depending on the size of the object.  For example, if I used the cloud paper on the plane the clouds would have been a lot smaller.

I'll still use my regular Cricut machine along w/ the Imagine.  I have SO much designer paper that I have bought that I need to use.  Anywho, hope you like.  It was a lot of fun to make.  The only thing I wish I could change on the Imagine is to have the hide contour button.  Maybe it does, I just haven't seen it.  But I don't like having the extra cut lines being shown on my cuts. (See the area around the stars)

Pam, you ROCK! This is probably my favorite Imagine project EVER!!! Like I said I like the patterns just not a lot of the cartridges. That is cool that it sizes down the pattern, I didn't know that. Hopefully it will get the hide contour feature. I understand what you are saying. I've started hiding those little marks now too. It just looks nicer. My one exception is on the Disney cartridges... I would never be able to line everything up without the little gidelines. Anyway, awesome card!!!! LOVE it! Hugs- Glora
