My IMAGINE ation Monday

Happy Monday my Crafty Friends!  Today is my day to post over at My Cricut Craft Room and it's IMAGINE ation Monday!  For those of you who just happened upon my blog; each Monday over at My Cricut Craft Room, as part of the DT we are challenged to use our Cricut Imagine, E2, Cricut Mini or CCR to create a project.  I chose to use my Cricut Imagine and the Buccaneer cartridge for my projects. 
My first project is a 3-D project.  

I cut my treasure chest using the fit to page feature on my Imagine.  I folded it up and there you go a cute treat box or gift box.  I stamped a cute little sentiment from the Pirate Tales & Fish Scales Stamp set by K Andrew.  I hand cut the little flag and added some twin from the Twinery and inked around the edges using brown ink from Martha Stewart. 

My next project is a card I created using the same Buccaneer Imagine cartridge.

My pirate girl is cut at 3 inches using the combined feature so that it printed and cut in one piece rather than in layers.  Isn't she adorable?  My card base is Recollections craft card stock cut at 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 and folded it in half making is 5 1/2 X 4 1/4.  My map layer is cut at 5 1/4 X 4.  The map paper is actually some digital paper I purchased a long time ago, sorry I don't remember from whom.  I distressed it using my Tim Holtz paper distresser.  I inked around the edges using some MS brown ink.   My sentiment is again from Pirate Tales & Fish Scales Stamp set  from K Andrew.  The cute little skull is from the same set.  I also used some twin from the Twinery.
