Happy Birthday!


Today's project is created by using the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge and the Confetti Wishes Paper Packet.

Now, I wont lie, I was struggling to find a project that would allow me to add more than just a smidge of such a "loud" design.  I love the design, but in truth, I am not a "bright" gal.  Before you all start laughing at me, what I meant is that I am what I call a "Gap" kinda gal.  I stick to the neutral color palates more.  This project allowed my to stretch my boundaries and try something new. What do you think?

OK, back to the topic!

So I used the Confetti Wishes paper as the main base for my card.  I then used a piece of Honey paper and using my Explore, I cut a perfect matching background to the Happy Birthday, and ALSO, as you can see in the second picture, I  cut a white background so that you can add your sentiment.  

As you might notice, when you close the card, the white sentiment card is completely covered.  

Come back tomorrow and I will have another Artfully Sent project waiting for you!

This cartridge is so much fun!  If you don't already own it, you should seriously consider it!  I can answer questions about the cartridge or any of the CTMH products, if you want to either comment below or email me by clicking HERE!

Come back tomorrow and I will have another Artfully Sent project waiting for you!

Boo! From Artfully Sent

Well ladies, and maybe a gent or two, I am absolutely loving this cartridge! Artfully sent is Heaven Sent!

See below is my 5 minute card.  It is "naked" as one of my friends would say.  In other words, no embellishments!  :)

I love that you can use a double sided paper and it will practically decorate the card itself.  

With today's "Boo!" card, I used Close to My Hearts paper packet called Scaredy Cat.  

When you open the card, there is a place on the left hand side to add a stamp with maybe some white ink, or even silver or gold pens! 

Just like with some many of Close to My Hearts other products, there are so many different varieties of things that you can do with the same card.  

I would love to see some of your ideas, please share!

All of the products used to make this card can be purchased through my Close to My Heart Website by clicking HERE!

Thank you and thanks for stopping by!

Mini Hop, but "Artfully Sent"

Hello my crafting friends!

So today, my scrappin' buddy and I decided to have our own little mini hop. We love hoppin!  

Our objective is to show you a few of the projects that you can make from the Close to My Heart "Artfully Sent" cartridge. 
I have to tell you, and many of you out there can agree, the Close to My Heart cartridges are great. This one, my friends, is no exception.  If you are a card maker, this is the cartridge for you!  Look at this card that I made in about 10 minutes!

I used a DCWV white, orange and black striped paper for the base of the card, layered it with a CTMH Sunset Orange and Black front on CTMH thin 3-D tape.   Added a "Boo!, a few ghosts and the front was done.

The front is good, but the inside is GREAT!  Look how fun this card is?  The house and the fence are actually 3- D!  Think of how many different things that you could do with this cute card!

A view from the side.

Come back tomorrow to start my "21 days of Artfully Sent" projects.  You will see just how versatile and fun this cartridge can be.
