Picnic Layout


I have been totally neglecting my blog lately.  I have been overwhelmed with trying to figure out my Imagine and I have a project I’m working on for my parents.  Those two things have consumed most of my crafting time, which isn’t a lot of time anyway. 

Here’s a layout using the Imagine.  The cartridge I used was the Imagine more cartridge.  I love using my Imagine, now that I’ve figured it out (for the most part!!).

DSC05342DSC05343Here’s a couple of pictures of the individual elements on the cartridge.  I switched some of the elements up a little.  For example, on this journaling tag I changed the scalloped shape to a strawberry.  I also changed the background to the tablecloth-looking material to match the theme.  Whenever you change things up, you have to cut in layers instead of a solid image.  I also used some Glossy Affects to add some shine to the strawberry and the butterflies.



I also changed the border to match the journaling tag.  I love that you can make everything coordinate so well with the Imagine.  The plaid background paper is from the DCWV “All About Boys” stack and the solid blue paper is Bazzills cardstock.

The title is cut from Make the Cuts.  I know there is so much drama associated with MTC and SCAL right now, but I simply love MTC when it comes to layout titles.  I use these programs to simply enhance my creative projects.  Okay, ‘nuff said, right?!

Enjoy and God bless!
