Lovely Cricut Artbooking Elegant Card

Someone commented that they wanted to see something "not so cutesy".  I don't know if this qualifies but here's hoping it does!
Using the Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut cartridge and one of the stamp sets that came with the cartridge, I created this fast 5" x 5" card.  

For those of you worried about mailing a square card, just put this in a 5" x 7" envelope.  Problem solved!

Here are the cuts I used:



Here's the Close to My Heart Artbooking cartridge and one of the included stamp sets to stamp the "Lovely" (see below):

Here is the Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month for July - a full alphabet stamp set! Normally, these are $29.95 but this month, it's only $5 with a $50 purchase!  WHOOP!

It's just $5 when you spend $50+ at my Close to My Heart shopping page.

[Video]How to make Vinyl Monogrammed Cups-Cricut Artbooking

Need a quick gift - maybe for a teacher, co-worker, friend? Scouting troop?

These monogrammed tumblers are the answer!

I got the tumblers at Dollar Tree. Then, using the Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut Cartridge for the font and the free Cricut Craft Room Basic Shapes for the circles (scalloped and regular), I made these quick gifts by applying vinyl to the tumblers.

You can always add in a kind note and a gift card on the inside!

I used the Close to My Heart Artbooking cartridge for the monograms (see below):

[Video]Elegant Cricut Artbooking Gift Bag

The Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut cartridge is extremely versatile.  Today's gift bag was made using just two cuts from this new cartridge.  The project went together in a snap!

Let's take a look at how to make this elegant gift bag:
cut the elegant overlay shown above at 9-1/2" using the real dial size button.  My gift bag is about 8"x10" so this was the closest appropriate size.

Again, the real dial size button is our friend!  Here is where to find the real dial size button on the cartridge overlay:
And here it is on the Cricut Craft Room:
Next, I cut the elegant "Celebrate" at 1-1/4" using the real dial size button.  Two cuts - one quick bag!
Want to see a video on how to make this quick elegant bag?  Check it out below (click HERE if you can't see the video):




The Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut cartridge bundle includes all shown above (3 large sized matching stamp sets, cartridge and handbook) PLUS 3 sheets of matching chipboard elements.
