[Video]CTMH Close to My Heart Thinking of You Valentine's Card Artiste

A fun, fast and easy Valentine!

This 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card was made using the Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge and Laughing Lola Cardmaking stamps.

Above is a close up of the "thinking of you" stamp and below are the cuts used to make that embellishment.
Here are the products I used:

The Laughing Lola card workshop kit includes all the materials to make 15 cards (5 cards of 3 different styles) plus a large stamp set, useful for other projects!

This card kit is retiring at the end of the month so if you are thinking about getting it, now would be the time!

  11. I love when you can use the stamps from one kit for something totally different! I need to order some base & bling that is retiring.

  12. Joy Your web site is wonderful and a great source that I recommend to many of my Close to my Heart customers and downline. I have a very active blog but sometimes some of my more energetic customers like several places to check out for ideas! I live an hour from Buffalo and LOVE the Buffalo stamping store. Only issue --- I never seem to get out of there for under about 200 dollars. :):):)

YOU ROCK!!

  19. What a great card. I found a DCWV Sweet Heart stack on clearence years ago. You have inspired me to make some cards with this stack that has been sitting unused for way to long. All your videos are awesome. Thank you so much.

  38. I have seen some of the retiring stamps. So many to choose from ...

  39. I have not done any project life projects. Sounds interesting.

  40. I think it will somehow connect to your cricut machine so you can cut from anywhere! Can't wait until tomorrow to see. I'm sure I'll have to have it.

    ReplyDelete
  41. To be competitive I think it will need to be able to get images off of the computer. The cartridges are way to expensive and limiting. Hope the new one isn't going to be very expensive.

  43. I agree that it will probably have to cut things from the internet like the Silhouette does. Maybe it will pick out what colors of paper to use!!! Machines are really getting sophisticated.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I still have the original Cricut....I'm not sure what this new one might be capable of. If it can cut things from the internet or my hard drive.......I may HAVE to have it!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Have been looking at the Expressions 2 so I'm very excited to see what the new machine will be like!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Your projects inspire me to create! Thanks! I don't always make the same project you posted but viewing yours makes my mind say "I like that but what if I........."!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I wonder how they can improve a wonderfully good thing. Perhaps a memory to store things that
    you cut.

  48. I think the new cricut machine might scan and cut. From Paula in the Lake District

  49. I think the new Cricut will do things like the Silhouette does. Can wait until tomorrow when it is revealed...

    ReplyDelete
  50. I think the new Cricut will allow you to send designs to the machine from an app. and cut images from anywhere like the Silhouette.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I think it will be a cross between the e2 and the imagine.it wii have the capabilities to print to your printer and will be smaller and lighter than the imagine . This way it would be in direct completion to silhouette.... Happy Crafting to all.
