Lovin' my Imagine!

Hi everyone! This is Kristy from craftin-on-my-door and I want to thank Sheila for allowing my to be her guest designer again today! I look forward to my monthly She's a Sassy Lady posts!

If you are a follower or just stop by my blog you know that I just received my Imagine in July, and I'm in {LOVE}!

Why did I wait soooo long? I honestly thought I didn't (need) this machine?! Well, I was wrong! I have been creating project galore with this big beauty of a machine! The possibilities are endless with this amazing machine!

So, today I thought I would show you a layout that I created in about an hour and a half! (That's REALLY quick for me!) My goal was to only use "one" cartridge for all prints and cuts...sometimes I get a little overwhelmed with too many choices. I was hoping to create and finish a page quickly by setting a goal!
Here's what I used to put this page together, plus some tulle, adhesive, adhesive foam, a piece of 12 x 12 pink paper (yes, I know I could have printed the background paper too, but I'm trying to use up what I have), and some yellow scraps.
 I flipped the bathtub and print/cut it and all it's layers at 5". Then I reversed the flip and print/cut more bubbles for my pics.
 Then I selected this shape from the bonus content...
 and then flood filled the image with this fun light blue striped pattern paper. It was printed and cut at 10.6" (rel).
I glued the fun background shape (off centered) down onto my pink paper.
 I glued the first layer of the bathtub straight down to the background. Then I cut a piece of gold tulle, tied it in the middle with a piece of twine, and taped it onto the back of the next layer of the bathtub. I used Glossy Accents and chunky glitter on the bubble layers, and added some Glossy Accents to some of the bubbles. Then I used foam adhesive between each layer. I have to say...I'm lovin' how this turned out!
Next, I glued down a scrap strip of yellow Stampin' Up paper onto the middle of the page. Using my ATG glue gun I ran glue down the back of another scrap of the yellow paper and then folded the piece back and forth to create some dimension. I did this for 2 pieces and then cut a "dove tail" off of the ends. For the last step of these quick and easy borders just run another line of glue onto the flat scraps (that are already glued down) and stick your pleated pieces on top. Then I added the title using some Thickers stickers.
 I stuck my pictures down and added some more bubbles to some of the pics.
 To be honest with all of you, my handwriting is not my favorite. That's why I try to type or use stickers for a lot of my journaling, but I have come to realized that Little Stinkerbella will want to see "my" handwritten journaling one day! So, Little Stinkerbella this is for you...
That's it! Can you believe it, less than 2 hours! I challenge all of you to pick one cartridge and put together a quick, easy, and cute layout! If you do please make sure you stop by my blog HERE and leave me a comment with your blog link. I'd love to stop by and check out what you've created!
Thanks for stopping by today! <3Kristy
