Artistry in Action

I’m home and I finally get a chance to play with the new Cricut Artistry Cartridge! The Heart 2 Heart challenge I saw the “Good Day Sunshine” challenge.  I created this card with Zoe and Artistry!Sunshine Starburst Card wm

I did a starburst or sunburst card depending on who you ask to do this.  I used Slate as my base for the card because I wanted the more muted colors of Zoe to really pop to show it off.Sunshine SB 2

I love our glitter papers.  I have found that you need to cut on “Fabric” with the Cricut Explorer for a clean cut and you can only go so small.  Bigger is better.  sunshine sb 4

A card to brighten up your day!! Don’t forget you have a few days left to get this cartridge with FREE shipping and a FREE SOM for August!  Don’t miss out!!

Christmas in August

My last card with the August SOM S1508 Framed is a Christmas Card which will be in the Come and Play Card Buffet!Christmas Aug SOM wm

It’s a simple and clean card, which I like.  I took an old flourish stamp set and paired it up with Framed.

The colors I used were Ruby, Juniper, and Slate.

I had some grosgrain ribbon which was close enough to the Ruby to use.  Tied a cute little bow on top.

 Love that these shapes cut out on the New Cricut Artistry Cartridge!!  S1508 Framed is $17.95 or $5.00 with a $50.00 or FREE when you purchase the new Cricut Artistry Collection, either the digital version or the cartridge, from me directly!! See this exclusive special offered through me only!

Check out Pictaculous!

A fellow consultant, Bren Yule, shared Pictaculous with me. It’s amazing. If you are not sure what colors you should use with a picture, this is the site for you! Here’s a picture:IMG_5304 wm

Go to the site: Pictaculous and upload your picture.

I like that they offer a few different color palettes.  I pulled the smokey plum color out of the Kuler suggestions:

I created this layout using a pattern from Make It From Your Heart Volume 1, Pattern 13 (page 30):

I uploaded my pictures to Studio J for photo printing.  I know that seems strange to use a digital scrapbooking program for doing this, but cost wise for photos that are off-sized, you save money.  An 8×10″ photo from Walgreen is 3.99; I can get two of those plus several other photos for $7.00!! And the photo quality is much better!!  Find out more by reading this blog post!

This tool will work best when using the Fundamental Papers!! Be sure to come to my Open House on September 19 to see just how exciting the new Fundamental Line will be!!Thanks for stopping by!
