This month we have over 40 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this new Cricut Artfully Sent Collection and other great Close to My Heart products. To visit each blog for some great ideas just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

Phone Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart unless noted: Cricut Artfully Sent cartridgeCardstock (White Daisy, Twilight (retired), Cotton Candy, Crystal Blue), Cricut Artfully Sent Collection, Cotton Candy Ribbon (retired), My Life stamp set (from the Cricut Artbooking Bundle), LOL Stamp Set, and Color Me Crazy Small and Medium flowers.

I tried to create a comical layout by adding the smile faces to the flower centers of the background and the words in the center of the paper flowers, what do you think?  I chose to use the Pocket Card on p. 32 of Artfully Sent to create a background for my layout.  Now the cards laid out like this do not quite fit on a 12×12 sheet so you can either cut it down, space them out a little, or cover it up (like I did here with the ribbon).  Mine was only short on one side but I decided that it looked best framed in the ribbon.

There are SO many different uses for this cartridge!  Don’t think that you are limited to cards alone.  The pocket cards can be used on cards, scrapbook pages, and they fit into the pockets for Picture My Life pages.  Another idea is to use the images as a mask or stencil.

Now “Hop” on over to Maria Myers’s Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas!
