You Make Life Bearable Cricut Imagine Card

Hey All!

I recently started using the “Better Together” Cricut Imagine cartridge for MANY more personal crafting projects and I really really have enjoyed the images on this Cartridge.

I have a few projects I’ve been working on here and there behind the scenes of the blog, but I thought I should share a photo or two here or there.

This card is VERY basic, I cut out the Bear and the Sentiment from the Imagine Better Together Cartridge and just placed them, popped up on some Yellow Stampin’ Up Cardstock.  The ribbon is Kiwi from Stampin’ Up as well.  That background is a pattern that I was able to print with the Imagine using one of the pre-installed Basic shapes cartridge.

I really do love the Cricut Imagine Machine.  I use it now almost exclusively in my personal crafting because I LOVE to just quickly select and print the colors for each layer I want to cut out from either my original Cricut Cartridges or the Imagine Cartridges.  I basically am a very quick, almost lazy, no mess crafter and loading just one sheet of white cardstock onto the Cricut Imagine Mat and out comes my project just by selecting the images and colors right on my screen.

Heres the Card!

If anyone is interested in learning MORE about the Cricut Imagine Machine, even before buying the machine, you may want to consider our Cricut Imagine A to Z DVD.

One, if you don’t have the machine, this DVD could still help you learn and inspire you and help you make the decision as to whether or not this machine is for you (because this machine IS NOT for everyone).  This DVD can help you make choices that are best for your crafting and that’s what I’m all about!

Two, IF you already have the Imagine, you are going to just love all the inspiration and I am sure you will learn a lot as well!  So you can check it out!  🙂

  7. How cute is that card the bear and the sentiment is so adorable you really have a creative mind kudos to you.

  8. Hi Megan,
    Cute card. I just watch your Imagine AtoZ DVD ,it was a great help to me. Thanks.

  9. Just received the Imagine DVD and will watch it this afternoon. Can’t find the remote for the TV/DVD and that is a bummer. I have looked everywhere and that took up the time I was going to watch your Imagine DVD.

  10. I saw the first couple of segments and they were great. Anxious to get to the rest.

    Love the card. I ordered your new Imagine DVD. The gypsy DVD was so helpful. I love my imagine especially for flood filling the cricut carts. So much faster. Thanks a bunch.

    Cute card. Don’t have the imangine, but take your ideas from the cartrigde you use and use my imagination from the plain cartrigdes to make what you make. I will tell you, you keep me going and that is a good thing. Have a great one.

  14. Really cute card. So many ideas so little time…
    I have the Imagine, and just got enough Cricut rewards to get a Gypsy. My questions is do I need to get the gypsy. I do not crop/design anywhere except my house & my computer is right there in my scraproom. I fully intend on using Cricut Craft Room as soon as it is available. Just looking for some experienced opinions.

    Hi Megan, I love the card guess ‘ll have to look for this crtridge also. Hi Pam, I love the gypsy,it allows you access to all of your carts , to design anything without having to look through all your handbooks.You can weld things together, work a design out on multipble mats.There are so many things you can do on the gypsy.I also felt the way you do,why spend the money, do I really need it and so on,but let me say that I just love my gypsy and am not sorry I bought it.

  16. Your new Imagine DVD is SO helpful. I’m really enjoying using my Imagine now, too! Thanks so much.

    SUCH and unbearably CUTE, CUTE card!!

  18. I have the Imagine, and I am still somewhat intimidated by it, but so far I’ve been able to figure out most of the things. The biggest problem I’ve been having with it is the print and cut alignment. I get it right for one project, and then it doesn’t cut right for the next. That’s kind of irritating.

  19. Cute card. I really have to use my Imagine more. I have your Imagine DVD and am going to sit and go through it soon. I’m sure you’re going to make me an expert!

    PS to Jeannie – I have the EZview craft desk and I love it! The only improvement that I would have liked is to have the drawers open up on either side – it’s have to get to the stuff at the end of the drawer.

    I love my Imagine too. I have the persomal cricut as well. But the fact that I can print and cut with the imagine makes it so much easier and more fun. I just purchased your new imagine video and I can’t wait to start it! I have the gypsy and expression dvds as well. They were and are very helpful. I refer to them whenever I need a refresher. You do great work!

  21. This is such a cute card. Thanks for all you do and helping keep us wanting more projects and videos with your great inspiration.

    Great work Megan, Thank you for sharing.

  23. Hi Megan, Don’t forget about your “Expression” buddies!! Like the card but don’t plan on buying one till ??? I will be moving into my new home next month so I will be taking about a month off of crafting … hopefully less. I haven’t been able to do much since I moved into my girlfriend’s home (Nov 2010)… most of my things are in storage now! But it was never away from my mind. Bought some things here and there since then. It’s been ages to me can’t wait Ill have my very own craft room. Sweet card, thanks for sharing!
