Today I am a guest designer on She's a Sassy Lady

CUT FILE IS AVAILABLE UNDER CUT FILE TAB, ENTITLED PRESENT ALBUM


Hi again everyone, today is my day to be a guest designer on shesasassylady.  This month I am going to give you a peek at Snow Angel.  It's a patterns and shapes cartridge for the Imagine.  I am in love with this cart.  The papers and layers you can create are awesome!

This project is a mini album.  I am really happy with how it turned out.  Using my Gypsy, I started with the present from Create a Critter, and then added squares inside of it from George.  I also added a spline from George and 3 ovals from George for the binding holes.  I cut this 2x out of Fed Ex envelopes, and also 2x out of card stock.  I then flipped the image and cut 2 addnl times out of cardstock.  I ended up with 6 cuts for both the front and back covers(4 cardstock and 2 fed ex).
I took a square from George sized to 5x5.5, added the spline and the ovals to created the pages.  I just cut these out of cardstock, 8x.
To decorate the pages, I pulled out my Imagine.  I really wasn't that impressed with this machine at first, but the more I use it, the more I am thinking "WOW".  It has so much potential.  The little house below is printed and cut all in one layer at 3.5".

The Background pages below and the tag and snowman are all printed and cut from the Imagine.



Here is a close up of the snowman, he was cut in layers and pop dotted together for a 3d effect.

Here are some addnl pages.



The Pics don't do this album justice, the colors are bolder and more vivid in real life.  These pics were taken late at night(as usual).  This album is ready to go for Christmas.  I am thinking black and white photos for an old timey feel.

Here is a picture of the finished album.

I hope you like it.  I want to thank Sheila for having me as a guest designer on her blog.  I will try and add the cut file by tonight.  You just need create a critter and george.
Thanks again, Beth

WOW! That's an incredible mini!! What are the chances of you doing a video on how you did this?? I'm not too good with written instructions, but I'm going to try and do it - I'd have to see what I'd use instead of the Image designs - anyway, thanks so much for sharing this - I just love it.

I also just wanted to say that I've only just joined Sheila's blog which is how I found your blog (and now following it too) - and I've seen so many wonderful creations - wish I had found you girls earlier!
