This swap is intended to help us become familiar with using traditional and Imagine cartridges together. Since the announcement of "no new cartridges for the Imagine" we must find new ways to expand our options with our Imagines.

In this swap you will be required to make a title/phrase and an object. Each must be at least two layers, and no larger than 5" in any direction. Assembly with pop-dots is optional as we'll be working with traditional cartridges. You will use your Imagine machine with BOTH an Imagine cartridge (for patterned paper and solid color selection) and a traditional Cricut cartridge. Choose your title/phrase and image and then change the colors of the layers using selections from your Imagine cartridge. I hope that makes sense!

Once complete you'll bag one title and one image in a bag together, and will have one bag for each participant (minus you), 10 in a group. Put all of your bags in an envelope or box along with return shipping cost in stamps and either a new envelope for me to return them in, or a card with your address on it. When shipping, be sure to get a DC# and send it to me. If you want a DC# on your return package, please specify that and include postage for that too.

There is no restricition to how you can do your cuts and you don't need to tell me what you're doing because what is the likelihood that someone will duplicate exactly?

Deadlines and Check-ins
Check-in- 11/16Smile , 11/23BigGrin , 11/30Laugh , 12/7Cool

Please ask questions if you don't fully understand something, this is a fairly new concept to some of us and I want to make it as easy as possible!

I got my cuts done today. I will wait till next week or after before I will mail them.

I am going to put labels on the bags so everyone will know what I cart and what regular cart the cuts come from. This way if they want to make more they can.

We have not talked about it but I would say to her. I will let you know later. I hope she can get hers fixed soon. I know she got some new carts she really wants to use.



I have to wait till my new carts arrive before I can start on the ones I will be doing for her.


I hope they are here my Monday.

It is really fun to use the orginals carts with the "I" carts. It is a bummer they are gettig rid of the "I" machine. I was hoping for some great new carts. I guess there was do many issues with the machine.


Anyway it is a very easy swap and a great way to use the old and new together. So many possibilites.

My carts didn't show up today they said they would be here but they are not. They have been in DM for 2 days now. I could drive ther 20 times or more in 2 days. That is why I hate fedex. They are so sloooow.


Maybe tomorrow. I won't be home tomorrow so It will be the weekend before I woudl get to them. that is if they show up tomorrow.

I would love to join this if you were doing it after the holidays, but things are just too hectic for me right now (dealing with dog eye issues, dh may need surgery in Dec, daycare baby a handful, things like that). I am anxious to try using the reg cartridges in my I and doing some color fill with them, but time right now just isn't going to allow it. Maybe if I find some time to play before Jen closes I will change my mind and join. If not I hope when I do get time to try that you are all still around to answer my questions!!Crying

Well I am not sure when my carts will get here. They still are tracking that they are still in DM. I called the company and they tell me it is in transit. For 3 days come on. I was not happy with them and will try to never use there company again. I always have service issues with them. And they lady couldn't even tell me when it would arrive. I makes me very mad.

I will get the rest of the carts finished hopefully soon. We will see.

Well Guess what. I just tracked my package this morning and now it says it is in WA. WHAT THE HE**. I have no idea why. I will be calling and complaining again today. It will not be a good phone call for them. It had been in DM for 3 days and it had not moved. b well then they mailed it to WA. Don't ask me why. It is the STUPID FEDEX company. After this I will NEVER EVER use thier company again. I AM VERY PI**ED OF!!!

If I don't get them by Monday I will contact Karyn and figure something else out.

Atleast before they were in the right state.

Mad Angry Mad Angry

Just tracked my package again. It still says it is in WA. Has been there since the 8th. I will call them again on Tuesday if they package doesn't show up then. If it doesn't I will check with Karyn and see what she wants to do. I know she is in NJ for work this week. I will wait till she gets home to contact her.


Just wanted to update you. I am really getting very angry about my package not being here when it wasy suppose to be.

When I went to the PO my package was THERE!!!! I am so happy it made it safely. I have the cuts cut out but have not assembled them yet. Trying to deside it I want to try and pop them up. The letters are very thin.

Will get them out either Thurday or Friday. I gained 2 massage for tomorrow and one for today so my days are filling up quick.
