Something Complete Different!

Now for something completely different!
On Monday while I was so busy getting
ready for the new Riley release I got a
delivery of my early birthday, anniversary
and Christmas gift.  LOL!

I was not sure how this would work for
the cardmaker in me but my dream has
always been to complete my Heritage
scrapbook. I have dabbled with digital
scrapbooking trying to speed my scrapping up!

So I ordered one of the new Cricut Imagines.
If you haven't heard of it well it is the newest machine
by ProvoCraft.  Info is here:

Why this machine?  Well I already have a huge
library of Cricut cartridges and a Gypsy.  This
machine can use all my Cricut carts and when
they get the update ready the Gypsy will be
able to be plugged into it!

So my impression?
At first I was unsure.  It was way out of
callibration.  I found info on the Cricut message
boards on how to do advanced callibration and
now I am in LOVE!

Here are my first quick results. 
My first cuts have a white border.
I have since found out how to eliminate those.
If you follow my Riley stamping you know I love
to cut out my Rileys and leave a white border so
it looks like something I would do anyway!

The cartridge used for these is the new Nursery
Tails for the Cricut Imagine.  It  was included
with the machine from Home Shopping Network
and I was not sure about it.  I really don't have
a need for a baby cart.  Well it makes the
cutest cards. 

Have a wonderful weekend.  I am off to class
with Suze Weinberg.  Yahoo!
