I did this as a thank you to a fellow board member who gave me a fantastic deal on an Imagine cartridge. The cartridge used is the Imagine Best Friends at fit to page. Even at that largest size, you can see the envelopes peeking out a little bit but I think that it doesn't look too bad. This is a copy of the project I did in a class at the Stampede that was done by Lisa Falduto ( http://lisafalduto.blogs...-teaching-at-texas.html ) that so impressed me, I realized this was a machine I had to have! The "Thank you" is from another cartridge but I can't remember which one! I have GOT to start taking notes on sizes and cartridges used! One thing that really bothered me is that my calibration is a bit off so I had to hand trim one side of the purse to make it look good but I will be spending some time soon to get that calibration right!

The envelope has blue shades to it in this picture but it's actually just plain old white. I used an envelope from Plantin Schoolbook and resized it in Design Studio to fit the card and used a border from Martha Stewart Elegant (page 77), resized it and added it to the edge of the envelope. I did five envelopes and five notecards and they fit just right in the little pocket inside the purse. I cut the envelopes on the Expression.

I took a picture of this side of the envelope to show how I sized the balloon layer on the imagine to be very small, printed and cut it and then glued it to the corner of the envelope. I made several of these to go in the purse to either be put on the front of the envelope or as an envelope seal on the back. One thing I noticed on the little notecard is that there is one balloon string that doesn't have a balloon on it...the string is just out there with nothing attached to it. So I printed a layer from the balloon image that is shown on the front of the purse, deleted everythig but the one red balloon and printed it really small (can't remember the size) and then pop-dotted it on the notecards. The "Thanks" sentiment is from a Paper Trey Ink set

I have/had calibration issues with my Imagine too. I am waiting on a new machine from PC.
