September 2011 Hello Thursday cartridge release!

Hello, friends!

It's Hello Thursday and you know what that means, right? Provo Craft has a monthly launch of new cartridges and today is that exciting day!

First off lets talk about the giveaway, I am giving away a Best of 2009 cartridge!



To win all you have to do is:

1) be a follower of this blog (either through blogger or email)
2) leave a comment on this post.

Its that simple! I will draw a winner next Thursday!

Scandinavian Christmas Cards: This cartridge has images that are reminiscent of German Christmas festivals. The cuts are easy to assemble and look great on cards, layouts, home decor, and even bags (you know I had to make a bag, right?). This cartridge also includes some great word art, envelopes, and card shapes.




I used Close To My Heart cardstock, ribbon, and stamps. The glitter cardstock is from DCWV.
I cut the ornament out at 2 1/2".
The stamp set is from Close To My Heart and called Christmas Love .The oval shape is a die cut from My Creative Time.
I used the cuttlebug folder called Sparkle.
With this card I was trying to give it a carved wood look. The glitter paper is from DCWV.
I cut the 'Joy' cut out at 3 1/2".
All supplies for this layout are from Close To My Heart.
I cut the title out at 2 1/4". The star is cut out using the Art Philosophy cartridge and then stamped using the coordinating stamps that come with the bundle.
The journaling tags are made using the September stamp of the month from Close To My Heart. The star is cut out using the Art Philosophy cartridge and then stamped using the coordinating stamps. The star cut was then mounted on the coordinating chipboard to give it some depth.
I cut out baby Jesus at 4".


Thanks so much for popping by today! I will be back here tomorrow with the last bag of the week, but this bag is made using the NEW Scandinavian Christmas card cartridge!
