We were away on vacation for a few days. We had beautiful weather. Hopefully, we will not experience too much damage from hurricane Irene. Now that I am back, I get to play with my Cricut and the Art Philosophy Cartridge. I was so inspired by the layout in the new Fall/Winter Idea Book featuring the Dreamin paper pack. I loved the layout. It took me a few trials to figure out the dimensions of the rectangular scallop piece. I also wanted a 2 page layout, so here is my layout.
The leaves, flowers and journaling circle were all cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge.
Not really sure what type of flower this is, but I thought they look like carnations and were more "fall" themed than the roses that were pictured in the Idea Book.
The journaling circle is embellished with the new Bronze Glitz.
Not only was I having fun with my Cricut and the AP cartridge, Katie and Lizzie were cutting and designing as well. Here is what they came up with:
Cute, cute, cute.
Let me know what you think of the layout. I would love to read your comments.
Just wanted to share the 2 layouts I will be offering in September. The layouts feature the paper pack Mischief. The first layout is from the Workshop on the Go Kit and uses the new Midnight Felt Shapes.
The second layout features Wicked, the August Stamp of the Month and Captured Moments with the Embossed Resist Technique.
Contact me if you are interested in these layouts and I will be happy to make a kit for you.
Who wouldn't like to receive a bouquet of roses? It is seldom that I receive roses, so I decided to make some for myself thanks to Lisa Stenz and her fabulous tutorial at www.lisascreativecorner.blogspot.com.
They were cut at 5" with the Light Red and Pink Shade Pack in Tulip, Blush and Hollyhock.
I just got my new Cricut cartridge today and let me tell you...I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. I made this card today for a swap this weekend using the cartridge and the new Sonoma papers and 2 new stamp sets: Unscripted and Harvest Happiness.
I love the way the Cricut cut out this rose and you can't tell from this picture, but the sentiment was also cut from the cartridge and the stamp fit perfectly to give it just a little border.
I am getting ready for a crop Saturday and a team meeting on Sunday. Lots of new stuff to play with in the next few days. Stay tuned.
