Thursdays with Tombow!! Simple Joys

This week at Tombow is Designer's Choice and 
since I love making layouts all I needed was a good photo.
The other day I was going through some High School pictures and thinking about how things were back then. 
So I made this layout documenting some of my favorite things at the age of 15. This is the first project using my new Cricut Imagine that my wonderful hubby bought for me on Valentine's Day. Thank God he didn't buy me another accessory for the phone, he used to think that it was a great idea until I told him that I didn't care about phones and that I could rock Nokia from 1998 and not care. (Which is not true, I love my I Phone, but I didn't want more covers, lol)

These two rectangles are from George and Basic Shapes 
but the pattern is from the Imagine More Cartridge. 
The Simple Joys banner is also from Imagine More.
 My cut had all the layered individually cut and I used 
my Tombow Foam Tabs to emphasize the title and birds. 

The background paper is from the 
Fine and Dandy Collection from My Mind's Eye. 
The stickers I used for the year are from Echo Park. 
The twine on the tag is from Doodlebug.

I used my Tombow Dual Brush Pens to doodle on
 the blocks of patterned paper including the base.

This is one of the icons of the Cricut Imagine 
that I cut and printed. I thought that it was a bit too bland 
a little boring and I used my Tombow Dual Brush Pens 
to make him more snazzy. 

I used a page of a Roll Book to journal and for this piece. 
I used my Tombow Dual Brush Pens to stamp the red flowers on the left. I also used some Twine from Doodlebug and to keep the bow in place I used the Mono Aqua Liquid Glue.
 The alphas are also from Echo Park.

I matted the Roll Book page and added a 
little bit of patterned paper. 
For each topic I used some bling and I also used my
 Epiphany Crafts Round 14 Tool and a paper clip. 
On the Epiphany Crafts Bubble 
I used the bird from the logo of the 
Fine and Dandy Collection. 
I made a pocket with the journaling tag to
 put a shipping tag inside in case I remember more things. 
The hand is also from the Imagine More cartridge and 
I also used the #025 Light Orange to color some details.

The Imagine prints worked very well with the 
Tombow Dual Brush Pens, I can't wait to try this again!! 

I hope you liked my first project using the Cricut Imagine!!
