A wonderful season of Love, Hope, Fun, and Love wall hanging made using the NEW CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge!

Hello, friends!

Today I have a project that is not my usual card or scrapbook layout. For whatever the reason I have felt the need to branch out lately and it has come in the form of more home decor and fabric items.

This wall hanging was one that I decided to do after I noticed that the CTMH ART PHILOSOPHY cartridge had something for every season on it. It only made sense to make something that would incorporate all seasons and something that you could hang on your wall all year around. Also, I wanted to really play with the stamps that are included with the bundle that comes with the cartridge. The font they used with this stamp set is FABULOUS!

If you are interested in buying this cartridge you can do so today by click here ==> Melanie's Close To My Heart Website . The cartridge is only sold as a bundle which includes three full stamp sets and 3 sheets of coordinating dimentional chipboard.

Besides the stamps that are included in the bundle there are many stamp sets that are included in the new catalog that also coordinate with the ART PHILOSOPHY cartridge. Isn't that great! There are even several Christmas sets that would make your Christmas cards a snap to make! You gotta love that!

The wall hanging is just a frame that I bought at Target. It was actually on clearance, so I might have paid like $12 for it. It is 16" x 16", so it is a really nice size!

The paper I used is from American Crafts.
The stamps are all from the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy bundle.
I cut the snowflake at 3 1/2".
The leaf at 3 1/2".
The sun at 3 1/2".
The flower at 3 1/2".
The heart out at 1 1/2". The scalloped oval at 2" and it is sitting on a coordinating piece of dimentional chipboard that some with the bundle.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I look forward to seeing you guys all back here tomorrow with yet another project!

PEACE, LOVE, AND CRAFTS!

Leah said...

Hi Melanie! Your projects are great, I am so excited about this cartridge:) I just wanted to let you know that I have had great success with cutting felt with my Cricut. You have to use a wool felt blend, the kind I tried was from PTI, and you back it with Heat 'n Bond, I got mine from Walmart. It cut beautifully, no harm to my machine and with the heat 'n bond on the back you can either leave it as is for embellies for cards/ layouts etc. or have cute custom appliques that can just be ironed onto clothing, bags, etc. Just wanted to share:) hugs...

Marilyn said...
