Mojo Monday #252 Round and Square Cards

It's a Mojo Monday challenge!

After doing my evening yoga, I was inspired to try this, and came up with both a circle and a square card, using two of the newest Close To My Heart paper packets.

I just LOVE circle cards, and some papercrafting friends have dubbed me the Queen of Circles. What a nice compliment! However, I am in awe of so many queens, kings, princesses, and princes of paper crafting!

This awesome circle sketch was designed by Julee Tilman:

My Circle Card in Avonlea:

CTMH products I used: New burlap ribbon; embellishments cut from Artiste Cricut Cartridge; Black hemp; happy day stamp; chocolate ink; opaque pearls; wooden button.

This card is for a young woman who is building her new business, one step at a time, and making her own happiness!

My Square Card in Flirty:

CTMH products I used: Square Kraft Card base; Artiste cartridge-cut butterflies; opaque pearls; sheer ribbon.  Verve stamp: "Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10"

I'll use this card as a sympathy card and write my own note inside.

Have a creative and inspired week, everyone!

Flirty Papers with Artiste

The NEW Flirty papers from Close To My Heart are combinations of greens, roses, oranges, beiges, and golds, and have endless possibilities.

I used both the NEW Artiste Cricut Cartridge (for the pleated flower and the sentiment medallion shapes) and the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (for the heart flower).

Other CTMH items I used include the fun Baker's Twine, Sparkles, Pearl Stick Pins, and one of the borders in the Artiste paper packet.

"Happy Everything" is from a retired stamp set. This card is 8" high and 4" wide and I will hand deliver it to friends for their anniversary with a basket of fresh fruit.

Happy paper crafting!

Avonlea Birthday Card with Artiste

A very special man is turning the big 6-0 at the end of this month, and I wanted to make a manly greeting card for him.

I love the Kraft paper color with the new Avonlea papers -- and am happy with the way this masculine card turned out. What do you think?  (Next time I'm using the new burlap for sure!)

I used all Close To My Heart products and had fun with some of the items in the new Fall/Winter Idea Book!

Avonlea paper packet (NEW!)
Artiste Cricut Cartridge shapes to compliment the Dimensional Elements (NEW!)

Avonlea Green and Teal inks (NEW) as well as Chocolate

New Cricut Cartridge--Artiste

The July 2012 Close To My Heart Convention in Dallas has ended, and one of the most exciting announcements has been the introduction of the new Cricut Collection, Artiste. This cartridge will be available beginning on August 1. 

I'm a big fan of CTMH's exclusive cartridges, and I can't wait to get my hands on this new one! I've had so much fun with the first cartridge, Art Philosophy. If you haven't tried this product from CTMH, don't hesitate to get started!

For $99, you get --
1 - Cricut cartridge with 700 Images: Font, Shapes and 3D Items
3 - My Acrylix D-size Stamp Sets
3 - 12" x 9" Dimensional Elements in coordinating shapes

Only two shapes are repeated--for convenience--from the Art Philosophy cartridge: the circle and the square. All of the remaining 698 images are totally new!

This cartridge features themed projects, interactive cards, awards and more. Cup cake liners, invitations and party favors will coordinate and come together easily for your next celebration.

Email me at janehaas7[at]gmail[dot]com if you want to pre-order the ARTISTE!

The new Idea Book is live to customers on August 1. I can place your order or you will be able to order one directly from my CTMH website. Delivery is always directly to your doorstep!
