Cricut Art Philosophy Project Life card

Hello, friends!
Cricut Art Philosophy Project Life card
Thank you so much for the uplifting words! You guys give me a reason to keep this blog going! You make my heart sing!

Today's card is a different take on using your Project Life cards. Here's the thing, I don't actually use Project Life cards because I prefer Close To My Hearts version called Picture My Life. The designs are superior and they actually coordinate with our patterned paper and cardstock. I love this because I can make cards and regular layouts using them with out having to sweat matching the colors. It is a no brainer really. 

I am actually late to the Project Life (Picture My Life) party because I did not see how they would work into how I already craft. Then, I saw some really great artwork made using them in many different way and I was sold! You might be thinking the same as I once did and that is totally ok. However, doesn't the sentiment on this card made me look like an amazing stamper? I didn't stamp a thing! All I did was add a few embellishments and a frame I cut using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. Then I trimmed all of it to make it look fancy and askew.

Good Morning and I hope today is a better day for you! {{{hugs}}}
Your card is fun and cheerful and a sweet way to send a happy greeting. I like the way you tilted the card and clipped off the edges to give it a twist.
Isn't it great when a paper crafting product can be used cards or scrapbbooking or paper projects.
Thanks for sharing your lovely work! :)

Great card design!

I just bought some Project Life cards (they were on sale) to see if I could use some of them. I don't like just sliding things in slots. I want to dress them up!
And your idea here is just great. Thank you.

I love Close to My Heart products and I love the way you put this card together. I have several project life type cards but I don't do the project life but now I know what to do with all of those cards. TFS and TFTCTW
