Monday Madness... Imagine That!


Welcome to My Creative Time's "Monday Madness... Imagine That!"  Today we are using our Imagines (or patterned paper, for those who don't own Imagines) to create something using the colors red, teal, and chocolate brown.  I decided to make a birthday tag to go on my sister-in-law's present.


To make my tag, I started with this image on the Cricut Imagine All Wrapped Up cartridge.  It's really cute as it is, but it wasn't in the colors I needed for today.  So, I cached patterns from Vintage Papers and Imagine More Cards to use with this All Wrapped Up cut.  To see how to do this, you can watch the video below.



For my sentiment, I used MCT's Many Greetings for the "Happy Birthday."  I spelled out "BECKY" using letters from the Anyday Bingo & Crossword stamp set.  I love the font from this set.  It's great to use in the Bingo card or crosswords, but it's also handy to use to spell out words on cards, tags, and scrapbook pages.


I made my flower using the Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridge and added a Papertrey Ink Button and Twine.


Here's a look at the tag on the present.  Sometimes just a fancy tag can dress up a plain gift bag!  The tag base is made from Papertrey Ink Hawaiian Shores cardstock, embossed with the Cuttlebug Seeing Spots embossing folder.

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see her project and others created by some of the design team!
