Say Hello to Artistry!

I know that everyone is eagerly awaiting the release of the new Annual Inspirations from Close To Heart but we still have a month to go.  I'm keeping as much as I can under wraps until my big reveal at my Bingo Night on August 28th.   But Close to My Heart HAS generously released a few things a month early!   On Saturday, the brand new much anticipated Artistry Cricut Collection became available to order along with one of the new paper suites - Zoe!  I love this bright, cheerful paper!

Today I'm sharing a card I created using the new Artistry cricut cartridge combined with the new Zoe paper!

One of the fun things about this new cartridge is the many layered banners (over 200 different styles!).  Here, I cut "Hello" in Smoothie and layered it on White Daisy shape.  Aren't those flowers cute??  I cut those in Glacier and Canary cardstock and used some Zoe polka dot paper for the leaves. Check out the new shimmer trim!!  CORAL - soo pretty!!  If you know me, you know how much I love shimmer trim!!

Be sure to visit my blog on Friday for an Artistry Blog Hop!  This hop will be sure to inspire you get this newest Cricut Collection!

Products Used:
Artistry Cricut Collection - Z3167

Zoe Paper Pack - X7197B
Coral Shimmer Trim - Z3088

August Stamp of the Month - Framed

Welcome to the August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Framed, a set of 12 stamps - three frames and nine sentiments! If you have come here from Judy Burger's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultant's HERE.

This set actually coordinates with our newest Cricut Collection - Artistry.  When I first saw this stamp I thought SUNBURST CARD!  I love it when an idea comes together so quickly!  

I used Whimsy Paper Fundamentals Cardstock for this card. I alternated using the front and back sides.  Since the Glacier Extra Thick Twine really IS extra thick, instead of wrapping it around the card, I used our mini stapler to attach it to the card!  I love using the stapler this way!

This is the card I will be teaching in my Technique Tuesday Class. For this card, I used colors from the Adventure Paper Fundamentals Cardstock pack.

This stamp is just $5 when you spend $50 in Close to My Heart products during the month of August!  If you don't already have a consultant, shop my website at 

Now it is time to hop over to Kathleen Androlewicz's blog and see what she has created!
