Just Add Coffee - Creative Critterz Imaginations Self Layout

Hi ya everyone!  Today is my day to share at the Creative Critterz Imaginations blog.  This week we are creating layouts about ourselves!  Talk about a difficult theme! LOL!!  My day always starts with a cup of coffee and well without it I'm just not me hence the title of Just Add Coffee!  I used Cricut Craft Room *please note that Cricut Craft Room is open to beta testers at this point and not the public* to design my layout.  Did you know that you can see each element of your 12 x 12 page?  I love this feature.  I can see exactly what I like before I cut and print paper!  What does this mean?? You save paper and time...and who doesn't like that!

12 x 12 White Paper
Cricut Imagine Yummy Cartridge
Cricut Mini Monograms Cartridge
Cricut Calligraphy Collection Cartridge
Glitter Glue
Small foam pop dots
Sewing Machine for Stitching
I completed each element on the Cricut Craft Room program.  I then turned to my Imagine and sized each element based on the settings on the Craft Room.
I used the layers feature a number of times to separate layers on the Imagine.  For each I added small pop dots to create dimension.
I added stitching, pearls and sparkle to the layout for an extra finishing touch.
