My Imagination Monday With My Cricut Craftroom


Welcome to My Imagination Monday with My Cricut Craft Room!
I chose to do a Magnetic Note Board for my craft room. I have had the magnet board sitting on a shelf mocking me for a couple of months so it was time to bite the bullet and show it who is boss. So first I will post the picture then tell you how I did it:)


The first thing I did was tear a piece of black magic paper to create the backround. I used an adhesive spray glue to spray the metal 12x12 sheet and carefully placed the paper on it and set it aside to dry. Then I pulled out my Word of Mouth  Imagination cartridge and found the large center cut that was perfect for what I wanted and the saying was fitting.  You will find the cut on page 23 of your booklet. I did the cut at 11 inches. I then used Stickles Glitter Glue and Liquid Pearls to give dimention and bling to the cut. You can purchase the Stickles here at Erica's Store as well as the cartridges I have used!! Then I set it aside to dry and cut my butterfly magnets at 2 inches from Lori's Garden but I did use Spring Chic to change the colors and patterns on the butterflies. I added Stickles glitter glue to the butterflies to dress them up a bit and set them aside to dry. While the butterflys dried I adhered the Being Creative cut to my base papers and gave it a protective coat of Modge Podge. After that dried I added the ribbon then placed it in a 12x12 scrapbooking frame but did not use the glass. Then I bent my butterflies to make them look like they were in flight and used a glue dot to adhere the butterflies to the magnets. Now I can look up at that magnet board and see:
Being Creative means not being afraid to fail
It is fitting and so true!
