This week's challenge on the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is to create a project based on the sketch below:
I decided to use my Cricut Imagine since it had been a while since I had played with my big boy. Originally I had put together a really sweet card using Lori's Garden but wouldn't you know it, my ink was running out so the colors printed weird. I put in a new ink cartridge and ran my project again but this time the print/ blade calibration was out of whack. I tried everything short of kicking the machine, but I couldn't get it back on track so I changed my design to graphics that did not require precision alignment like the ornate images on Lori's Garden. Instead, I used the Imagine Cartridge "Word of Mouth" to make this card:
I knew this day would come sooner or later, I just didn't think it would come so soon. I am praying that the machine will regain its functionality if it stays off for a couple of days. Once I find a bit of time to research fixes online, I will say a little prayer and take another pass at getting the print/ cut alignment fixed.
