Hi everyone! Hope you all found some awesome Black Friday deals. I know I scored at JoAnns (Nestibilities, DCWV & Recollection stacks, Cricut cartridges, and jewelry making supplies) and at Michaels (DCWV stacks, Jewelry beads, Cuttlebug quilled kits, Recollection bling and embellishments). I couldn’t believe the deals when you took advantage of the regular sales of 40% to 50% off and then another 25% to 30% on top of that. I was getting $20 items for $7! Oh, just in case you are wondering, I did pick up some non-crafty deals at other stores…lol.
All that craft shopping put me in the mood to craft. So I designed a card for Peachy Keen’s Sketch with a Twist. Since the Cricut Craft Room is open, I thought I’d give it another try. I tried it when it was in beta but it just kept crashing. This time I had no problems designing my card. However, it all went down hill when I tried to print and cut with my Imagine <sighs>. It would print but no matter what I did, it wouldn’t cut. I need to do some research to see if anyone else has had that problem and how they fixed it. If you have any guidance, please leave a comment. I’d really love to see how the CCR is working for you. I think the CCR will be great once I get past this cutting hurdle.
So, here is my Card. It was a real challenge but by sticking with the paper pallet in the Mr. Frosty Imagine cartridge helped keep the color scheme in check. I used the adorable PK-M21 Donna Rae Penguin. I used my Copics to color him in and then paper pierced him with paper from the Mr. Frosty cartridge. I couldn’t help but bling it all up to put the final touches on it.
Here are shots of my design in CCR. The blocks on the right were for the paper piercing of the hat and vest. I wasn’t sure which pattern I was going to use so I printed a few different ones. Since it wouldn’t print, I wound up using my Nestibilities instead of the ovals in the design.
Here is one of the papers after printing/cutting it my my Imagine. This was my second try. As you can see, it printed but didn’t cut. =(
