As is my pattern, I wanted to use my new Cricut Imagine IMMEDIATELY for a layout. Our son had just returned from helping out a couple of days in Joplin (after devastating tornado), so I put together a quick page using the new machine and the two photos I have of his time there.
I used the cartridge that came with the machine, Imagine More, to cut the green side border and the bottom border. I used my Expression with Elegant Edges cartridge to cut the brown border. The Imagine Yummy cartridge (my favorite) is the source of the flourish. The title letters were cut on my Expression with StoryBook cartridge.
For this page, my goal was simplicity in design, so that the meaning of the event itself would be center-stage.
