Just A Little Hello-Cricut Imagine Card

Front of Card

Alternate View Back of Card

I created this card for the Weekly Cricut Circle Blog Challenge. This weeks challenge is to create a layout with an "everyday" topic or a "just because" themed card. I chose the card and this is what I came up with. Everthing is cut on my Cricut Imagine. The pink paper is from Colorbok Flea Market. The "torn notebook" edge is a Fiskars punch. The ribbon is from the $1 bins at Target. All the die cuts on the front are from the Imagine More Cards cartridge. The card fronts from this cartridge go together so easy! It is hard to see in the photos, but I used my Sukura glitter pen all around the front to add just a bit of shimmer. I also distressed with Tim Holtz inks around the edges. The birdie and the 2 layers behind it are on pop dots. TFL! Hope you have a great week!

Art Journaling

These pink/green/brown pages are my first set of pages. I had a blast making them. They really made me "feel". I have come to find that with every drop of paint, marker, paper, embellishment, word, etc. I really feel like I am "feeling" something in this journal. The journey so far has been amazing!

Believe it or not there is no green on these pages! Well, there technically is, but it was by accident. I put blue and yellow on the pages. And as I learned in Kindergarten, that makes green! Oh, and I learned from Journal Artista (aka Paula) that a Hotel Key/old credit card makes a great paint tool!

This next set of pages came about because of my recent frustration with both myself and my family. I adore my family. They are the best! But, I cannot get them to clean up after themselves for anything. I have tried begging, pleading, bribeing, giving consequences. And nothing works. I am also tired of myself. I feel sometimes like I am just a big hormone. I guess that is because I have 3 boys, a husband and most of the animals in my house are boys! I know I am a drama queen.
I want to send a huge thanks out to Paula at http://www.journalartistaart.com/. She has inspired me greatly! I would never have had the courage to try something like this if it wasn't for her. So, thank you Paula!
