Day 1: Snow Scurry Layout

Hi everyone! Welcome to Day 1 of the fun you will find here at Imagination Land!! I am so excited to get this show on the road!!

Every morning you will find a new project here to greet you. I will be sharing cards, layouts and other creations I have made using my Cricut machines. If you are totally new to the Cricut, don’t worry! I am going to be sharing lots of tutorials, tips, and tricks along the way.

It is going to be a fun year!! I will also be continuing to post projects to my regular blog, so make sure to stop by there too 🙂

Before we begin, I would like to tell you a bit about myself.

I am kind of a young person in the paper crafting world. I just graduated college a couple of weeks ago with a Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry and Psychology. I have been a full time college student for 5.5 years and along the way I became completely and utterly obsessed with paper crafting. This obsession changed my life. I blog daily at Scrapmaster’s Paradise http://www.thescrapmaster.com and have been loving every bit of the scrappy online community. This is my absolute passion. Now that I am a college graduate, I intend to be a full-time professional paper crafter!

In October, I started my own stamp line SP and Company Stamps. I design all the stamps myself and new designs are going to be coming out on a monthly basis. My stamps are carried in my online store and iCopic.com. This is now my job, and I couldn’t be more excited with it!!

Aside from my crafty life, I have a fiance and 5 doggies. We live in a small town in Tennessee, and will get married January 11th, which is like 10 days away! Well that is basically all about me :O)

I am very approachable so if you ever have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Next, let’s talk BLOG CANDY! In honor of the launch of Imagination Land, Oh My Crafts has generously donated the goodies for me to giveaway!!

These Cuttlebug dies work in most (maybe all) of the current manual die cutting machines out there on the market.

  2. I’m very interested to read your blog. I too am addicted to paper crafts and this is the first blog I have found that is focused on the cricut machine. Looking forward to seeing your creations!

  3. Congratulations on your new adventure and all my best wishes! I do have some other toys but not a Cricut although I have been looking more and more. By the time I catch up reading your new blog to January 6 I just may be ready for that purchase!

  4. Very cute layout you made. I am so glad to see you use the original cricut and not the imagine..which I thought was the case when I saw the title of your blog. Since I don’t have an imagine, I love to see projects with the original machine. Thanks..I’m a new follower!

  5. What a refreshing snow layout! Eveyone seems to use just whites and blues for snow layouts. This is wonderful! I look forward to seeing your future ideas.

  6. how ambitious you are! good luck! I’m trying to save pennies to get a cricut but am not seeing it happen anytime soon 🙁

    can’t wait to see what you come up with!

  7. I just got my cricut and am pleased to see ideas of how to use it. I am a dog person, so the subject matter is very eye catching. Congratulations on your forthcoming marriage and I will look forward to seeing your designs.
