Here is a scrapbook layout that I made using the Cricut Imagine More, and George & Basic Shapes. 

The 10" mat is printed and cut from the Imagine More cartridge on a very light pale green.  It is the paper to the right and for comparison the middle green cardstock is what I used to mat it.  On the left you can see a plain piece of white paper.  So, as you see you do not have to print on only white cardstock. 

I placed the 10" mat from the Imagine More on a 12x12 piece of traditional solid cardstock.

I matted the photos with cardstock that coordinated with the Imagine More cut.  In fact, the dotted print matches the flower perfectly.  I also added coordinating ribbon to add more depth. I inked the edges of the photo mat.  The photo mats were adhered to the layout using pop dots. 

 I used the banner cut from the Cricut Imagine More cartridge and cut out two additional bird images that were layered on top of the banner with pop dots adding dimension.

Rather than using the title 'simple joys' that is in the Imagine More cartridge, I cut the words "Peek-A-Boo" from the original cricut cartridges George & Basic Shapes on traditional double sided cardstock.  OOPS, I guess I didn't need to print that title but, I forgot to delete the image.  You could also use the Imagine to flood fill the words with either the RGB code or using your stylus and picking a color in the color wheel or the basic colors. 

You can also select one of the patterned papers that come with the different Imagine cartridges.  You can see the different pattern papers in the picture below. 

Back to my project.... I then, used two way glue to adhere the words to the banner. 

The words "Peek-a-boo" were welded with GBS at .75" on my Gypsy.  At this time you cannot weld with the Imagine but, hopefully in the near future.

Looks great. How do you like the Imagine? I"m just curious, if you are not a PC blogger, how did you get your Imagine already? I'm Cricut GREEN with envy!

Robyn said...

Great job Bobbi!! LOL! I'm curious, too. I didn't know that you were getting the Imagine earlier either. Super cool, though! I am loving playing with mine. What is your favorite feature??

I have video, pictures from when I was in chicago. I also have been making things with cuts that I have. My favorite things are that I can use my Gypsy with it and mix patterns as well as flood fill the original cartridges.
