Quick Imagine Card and GIVEAWAY!


After updating my Imagine machine the other day, I decided to play around with the Better Together Imagine cartridge.  There are just the cutest images and paper patterns on there!  I just LOVE IT!


For fun, I pulled out this 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" clear acrylic card (by Close to My Heart) and thought it would make a fun background.  The solid yellow is cardstock but everything else was printed on the Imagine.


I loved this flower and bee - the flower was pop dotted all over, including the face (which is pre-printed with the eyes and smile, etc.).  The "Happy Spring" sentiment is from My Creative Time's Color Me Happy set and the flower stamp is from Close to My Heart.


Laying flat, you can see the background inner paper through the front.  I also inked the edges of the acrylic with black Staz On ink.


For the inside, I cut a scalloped circle and adhered it so it remains hidden by the larger circle on the outside.

How about a giveaway!??

  6. I bought the Imagine a while ago
    ... I did get to play with it for a few days. Then when I went to use my regular cartridges it didnt work. I spent many hours on the phone with the tech department at PC. the tech was really supportive and we tried to trouble shoot it. after a while it was hopeless, and I was told to ship the the machine to ProvoCraft...I just spoke to PC yesterday and my NEW imagine is at the warehouse ready to be shipped...Wonder how long it will take to come Utah to Rhode Island. I just cant wait to play with it and learn all I can do with it. dawn RI

  41. Your card is adorable as most of yours are. I don't have an Image machine and so far am not completely sold on it. I think the coloring makes the images looked processed. It has to be a lot more expensive ton operate. I truly love my Expression though.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I would love to have an Imagine. It's amazing how it will print as well as cut. Love the card you made. I am a follower and look forward to receiving the e-mail daily,

  44. I got my Imagine during the launch on HSN and have only just begun to use it. I have a serious paper addiction and love being able to make my own paper whenever I want. I've used it to make page lay-outs and cards, it's just so handy. Thank you for the opportunity to win a cartridge. I really enjoyed the card you made.

  45. I'm soooo happy that my Gypsy can talk with my Imagine. Yay!

  50. I think the Imagine machine totally rocks! I wouldn't mind owning my own Imagine machine!!!! If I want to use an Imagine machine, I have to * borrow * my friend's machine and I hate doing that to her. As a pay back for borrowing my friend's Imagine machine and 'IF' I win this very awesome cartridge, I will give this cartridge to my friend as a THANK YOU for allowing me to borrow her Imagine machine.

    Okay, what do I think of the Imagine? It is over the top. I wish I had something like it to do my laundry and fold it, but PC isn't in that biz ; )

    So, I am looking forward to the new E2. THAT is why I am posting here for a cart gratis! I can use it in my E2 when I get it!

    Have a great one!

  61. What do I think about the Imagine? Well, at first I wasn't that impressed - I just saw $ for ink with all that printing - BUT, now that I've seen some of the projects I am coming around - right now the price is prohibitive - but what scrapper says "never"?? Thanks for the chance to win this cart.

  65. I think the Imagine is so easy to use and lets me quickly put together projects that coordinate. I find myself using it all the time because of that reason. I also love that it cuts beautifully!

  66. The card you made is fab and really my type of style. I really am enjoying my Imagine and now that the Gypsy can edit Imagine carts is that much better. Do I think there are things that can be improved - you bet! The welding feature of Imagine carts can only make thing better so I am eager to get this as well. Thank you for a chance to win this cute cart.

  70. I love your card! I don't have an imagine so not much opinion on it, I would like one but not enough to spend the money. The only feature of the machine I wish I had was to fill letters with pattern. I really like using pattern paper with my E! and not enamored of printing my own patterns. But I really want the E2 so I can use some of the cute carts for the imagine!

  79. Absolutely love my Imagine, only have the 3 carts that came in the HS bundle when I purchased. This cart is only my wish list. Sorta went crazy from Black Friday thru the 1st of the year buying all of the Expression carts at such good prices so have expanded my Imagine library. Got my updates but can't get my gypsy to recognize my Imagine, have the icon on my gypsy. Took about 4/5 times to get the gypsy updated, so will try again. Love the card, great idea using the acrylic as a base. TFS Have been a follower for several months.

  114. What great images on the cartridge. I like so many things that I have read about the Imagine. I like that you can print your own paper, and design on the machine, There are so many things I don't know, but as I said earlier what I have read about the machine, all I can say is what's not to like.
