"Fall"ing in love with the Cricut Cartridge--Dreamin' layout from my team meeting project pack

The layout and cards shown here are created with the new Dreamin' paper packet--I love the blues, browns and gold tones mixed together!  The leaves, letters and scalloped background pieces were all cut on the Cricut using our new Art Philosophy cartridge.  What's unique about the Art Philosophy cartridge is that it is made exclusively for Close to My Heart, and the images on the cartridge coordinate perfectly with our stamp images. . .just cut out your image on the Cricut  to the specified size (indicated on your stamp set carrier sheet) and stamp the corresponding image in the middle!

Cricut boxes from our team meeting project pack--designed by Vickie Hooker

All three of these boxes are on the new Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.   The boxes are a breeze to assemble!  All of the embellishments that you see on the boxes were also cut from the Cricut.

Typeset Layout and Cards from my team meeting project pack

All of cards and the layout on this board were created using the new Typeset paper pack.  The layout pages have "pockets" that you can put the tags in (I used 3D foam tape to create the pockets).  Many of the images on the board were cut with the new Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.

Sonoma Card Box Workshop--Tuesday, Sept. 27th, 6 p.m. (project from my Aug. 20 team meeting)

I'm a big fan of our new My Creations Card Box.  It's a great size for cards, photos, recipe cards or small gift items!  And, like all of our My Creations products, it's a blank slate waiting for you to work your magic!  This box is made with our new Sonoma paper packet.  The roses and letters are cut from our new Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  If you'd like to make this box (along with some coordinating cards), sign up for my Card Box class on Tuesday, September 27th.  Cost for the class is $7 plus a $10 minimum order.
