My IMAGINE is in the HOUSE!!:) - Episode~97

All I have to say is "WOW"! I LOVE MY NEW "ANNIVERSARY" TOY!! hehehehe! I hope you enjoy my 3 "Beginner" projects! I had SOOO MUCH FUN creating these! Can I just say that this machine has SOOO MUCH Potential, it's killing me! lol.... I ONLY scratched the surface w/these cute items I made! The "ONLY" thing I'm not happy about, is that my poor "Gypsy Girl" feels neglected:(  As soon as I can use her w/it, LOOK OUT!!!! I might just have to make my "Imagine's" permanent home near my kitchen!! hahaha!...  In my video, I quick show you how I created the blue bookmark! I hope you enjoy it & PLEASE, let me know what you think!;)

This is the Bookmark using Wally World cardstock! Looks good in pics! I used a little stickles & my brown marker for the faux stitching!;) As you can see, I still layer everything! I don't think I can ever stop doing that!;)

This is the Bookmark using Papertrey Inc's cardstock! Looks good in pics & in "My Opinion" better to the touch! It's not flimsy, I just LOVE the quality of it!;) I added yellow stickles to the sun & used my brown stampin up marker for the faux stitching!

I used a borderline cream/white textured cardstock to cut out my tree! & Of course, I just had to stickle it up!! hehehehe!;)

Thank you for visiting my blog! I will see you back here tomorrow for my Throwback Thursday challenge & it's "Cricutless"!! Have a GREAT night my sweet friends!;)

Two "Fun" Word Books! One w/the Gypsy & One made w/Cricut ONLY!

Here are the books FINALLY!! hehehe!! Now, these are decorated VERY BASIC! I also embellished them different so you can see the difference between the two!  This 1st one is designed using the GYPSY!
Here is the book laying on its back so you can see how it looks!

Here is a sample of what the book looks using the CRICUT ONLY!!

Here is another view of it so you can see how I just glued the letters on!

Also, I did get an email from one of my viewers & she reminded me that if you would like the feel of Medium Chipboard & if you want the feel of thicker chipboard~  all you have to do is glue 2 pieces of lightweight chipboards together! OR stack as many as you want for the desired thickness!
I hope this helped some of you out!! Have a FABULOUS day my friends!
ALSO, if you would like to participate in this week's throwback Thursday challenge, you can do so HERE!!

Some Chipboard Information! - Episode~92

1st of all, here are a few questions from a few of my youtube subscribers!

Do you think there's anything wrong with using the Deep Cut Blade all the time if set on a lower blade depth so it can cut cardstock? Just wondering. I've had it for almost a year & never used it @ all. What the thickness of the chipboard you can use with the Deep Blade? The regular blade can take .22, right? I think that's the cereal box size. Where did you get your thicker chipboard at? Wow, a lot of questions. Thanks Emma. XOXO :}

When I use my Deep Cut blade, it rips my pattern paper all the time:( that's a BIG NO NO for me because I LOVE my pattern paper!:) It works when I cut my Papertrey Inc paper w/o tearing it! But, I would just stick w/the regular blade when cutting cardstock & pattern paper!  You can use your regular blade to cut cereal boxes! just use your multi cut 2 times! JUST TO MAKE SURE!! It can be done w/one cut, but I like it to cut out twice!
The chipboard I used in the video is comparable to "Poster Board"! It comes w/my Stampin Up pattern paper in the back of it! You can see in the video how well it cuts! I use "Light Weight" chipboard, not medium weight because it's too thick for the cricut! Now, if you pick up the poster board, you can use your regular blade & it will cut it out just fine! (I discussed this w/Christina  ~Creations w/Christina!~earlier) So she "Co-signed" this!! lol...

Thanks Emma, Is that medium wiehgt? I saw some medium weight chipboard on and it said caution not for will not cut med weight. Is that true?

YEP, that's true.

Here is a tip from a demonstrator for Provocraft!
Thanks for sharing this! I am a demonstrator of the Cricut for Provo Craft and this is one of the most asked questions to cut chipboard. Just a can use chipboard on older mats by simply using painters tape (blue) along the edges to hold it in place. Thanks again!

You'll understand this more after you watch my video!

I will show you an example of what the woodbook looks like put together! One example will be how it looked made w/the Gypsy AND the other will be how it looks using your CRICUT ONLY!! Enjoy!;)

I will see you back here tomorrow w/pictures of this "FUN" wordbook! Have a good night & I guess we will ALL be watching the CRICUT IMAGINE LAUNCH!!;)
