Aaaargh! It's a Celebration!


Hi There,

We're having a big Birthday Celebration over at Creative Critterz Imaginations all week long to celebration the Imagine being ONE year old. So our theme for the week is "Birthdays"!
What's a celebration without a gift...so I'm offering up a Best Friends Cricut Imagine Cartridge.
For your chance to win leave a comment and be a subscriber or follower to my blog. I'll draw on Sunday September 18th and announce the winner on Monday, September 19th.


Creative Critterz Imagiantions blog is having a "Give Away"  so be sure to check out the projects each day.  Details and how to enter  can be found HERE.

I love the Buchaneer cartridge. For a birthday celebration you can't go wrong. It has everything.
Let's start off with the birthday card. A side step fold. Directions can be found here.
Pirate - 3"
Ship - 3"
Parrot - 1.5"
Happy Birthday 1.5"
Gold flower soft for the pile of gold.
Now you need an invitation. I did use Base Camp for Recruiting and Old West for the Date, Time, Place. Remaining images from Buchaneer. After I cut the page out I distressed the edges so it looked worn and then added some Tim Holtz Wild Honey ink around the edges.
The invitation was designed in the Cricut Craft Room and I did a print only.
Pirate Hat, eye patch and treasure chest are 3-D items on the Buchaneer cartridge.
The hat was cut "fit to page".
Treasure chest cut at 5.4" and I could get four to a page. It makes for a pretty tiny treasure chest but you could use it as a place setting and put some candy loot into it.
Every party needs a gift bag whether it is for the guest of honor or the guests. Font from Country Carnival filled in with colors and patterns from Buchaneer. Did you know that on the Cricut Community Forum - Imagine Group - there is a file that shows all the RGB codes for the different color palletes of each Imagine cartridge. So handy.
Originally the scrapbook page was designed for another week but it fit in so well with today's post that I thought I should include it.
Hope you enjoyed all my creations for today.
See you soon!
Yvonne
