Now lets talk turkey! As per usual I have the cartridges listed in order of which I like the most. I love Art Philosophy the most because Close To My Heart is also going to sell (as of Aug 1st) coordinating stamps and chipboard! I have gotten a good sample of these things and Joy and I were overwhelmed with possibilities!
I am not sure if you guys know, but I have been a Close To My Heart consultant for over 3 years now. So, if you are interested in ordering this FABULOUS cartridge you can by clicking here as of August 1st ==> http://melaniebrown.myctmh.com/
Now to be clear this cartridge is not available until August 1st, but that is like Monday!
ART PHILOSOPHY this is a Close To My Heart exclusive and is a total winner. This cartridge has tags, a great font, awesome basic shapes, a card feature, boxes, 3D flowers, and much more. This is one of those cartridges that is you could only have one on a desert island this would be it. Close to My Heart is selling it in a bundle that includes 3 sheets of coordinating chipboard and 3 sets of coordinating stamps.
|The paper, stamps, and ribbon used is from Close to My Heart.|
|I cut this little tag out at 2 1/2". The house is cut out at 1". This tag was cut out and then added to coordinating chipboard from Close To My Heart. LOVE THAT!|
|This journaling spot is cut out at 2 1/2". The hearts are cut out at 2 1/2" and 1 1/2".|
|'home' is cut out at 1 1/2" and 'sweet' is cut out using gypsy font. The shape that 'sweet' is on was cut out at 1 1/2 and put onto a coordinating piece of chipboard.|
|The house was cut out at 3" and the doily was cut out at 5 1/2".|
ART NOUVEAU This cartridge has some really beautiful images on it. It is perfect for jewelry making and home decor projects. It has two fonts, unique images of women from a classical era, and beautiful flowers on it.
|I used Basic Grey paper.|
|I cut this beautiful bee at 3".|
|The stamp is from My Creative Time stamps. The stamp set is called 'My Favorite Sayings'.|
SOPHIE This cartridge is the Circle exclusive for the next quarter. If you were on the fence about joining, perhaps this is what you needed to push you over the edge and take the plunge. This cartridge has 4 card features, a doily feature, and a bookmark feature. It also has lots of flowers, leaves, birds, and damask shapes. This cartridge would be great for all kinds of projects especially cards and home decor. I can also see lots of scrapbook layouts being made using this cartridge as well!
|I bought this canvas bag at Hobby Lobby.|
|The fabric is cut out at 10".|
SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE This cartridge has your all your reasons to celebrate covered. Images included are great for baby showers, birthdays, weddings, and work parties! This cartridge also includes a festive font and matching card feature.
|Paper and ribbon are from SU!|
|The gift cut is cut out at 2 3/4".|
|The stamps are from Papertrey Ink.|
|I used a damask decor cuttlebug folder for texture.|
SIMPLY SCARECROW Ok true confession time, scarecrows usually really creep me out. I am not sure why, but they do. However, the ones on this cartridge seem more benign. Especially the female one which I thought was a great idea. Also this cartridge has some really great Autumnal word art. If you are yearning for fall as much as I am this might be just the thing you need to put you in the mood for cooler weather!
|The paper is from Close To My Heart.|
|I cut the cornstalks out at 5".|
|This tag is actually from Art Philosophy (love that cartridge) at 4" and I added the little crows to it. They are cut out at 2".|
|The scarecrow is cut out at 5".|
|I cut the title out at 3 1/4".|
