Welcome to another Art Philosophy Blog Hop. This month we will be showcasing the “Card” feature of the cartridge. Did you know there are 100 different card shapes you can make with this cartridge? You heard me correctly — 100!!! Now we won’t be able to show you ALL 100 card options, but we will show you as many as we can. The blog makes a circle so you can start anywhere and continue until you are back to where you started. If you are coming from Connie’s Blog, you are on the right path.
Lucy Kelleher, our hostess and fellow CTMH Consultant, will be giving away a stamp set!! She is giving away the April 2012 Stamp of the Month set that can no longer be purchased called “You are…” (Retail Value $17.95) You can see a picture of the stamp set on Lucy’s blog. To enter to win you must comment on Lucy’s blog and all the blogs in this blog hop.
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Dotty For You Paper Packet, Art Philosophy Cricut Collection, Baker’s Twine Paradise Assortment, Sparkles, Party Pennants stamp set and Black ink.
I chose the card feature on page 65 of the Art Philosophy booklet with the shift key. I used my 1 1/4 circle punch for circles which show through the front of the card to color the flowers. It is so easy to create amazing simple cards like this one with Art Philosophy.
Your next stop is Joanne’s Blog.

I am posting this early due to tomorrow’s Spotlight Blog Hop (come back tomorrow to see some distressing).
C1429 Party Pennants (*this stamp set will be retiring so if you like it order now)
This is a fun set that has been around for a little while, great to use for an party card or layout.
Supplies used: We R Memory Keepers White Out Frenzy – Mania paper, CTMH Dotty For You paper, CTMH Party Pennant stamp set, CTMH Inks (Sunny Yellow, Sweet Leaf, Sunset, Lagoon, and Smoothie), CTMH circle and scallop circle punches, CTMH rhinestone frames (retired), and Studio 18 Rhinestones.
I used inspiration from a Scrapbook Generation layout I found on Pinterest. I am amazed at how many other papers and embellishments that I have in my stash are working so well with the Dotty for You papers. I am so glad I overbought on this one. My secret for easily cutting pennants like the ones are this page: I cut straight up the middle of the strip as deep as I want, then cut from the corner to the center (where I stopped my first cut) on both sides and that’s it. You could certainly measure and draw the lines but I just cut. I used this stamp set in a very traditional way but you can do so much more with it…use the dotted line to create a border on your page or use the banners to create a unique pattern!

I was so busy in February with my new Close to My Heart products that I really didn’t dig into my stash at all. I’m hoping to do more this month but I can’t believe we are already halfway through! My personal stash buster for March is chipboard so I hope you will be seeing a lot of it. My basket is overflowing so my goal is that it will be more manageable by the end of the month.
Supplies used: Crate Paper Prudence Collection Kit, CTMH Colonial White Ricrac, Martha Stewart border punch, Recollections floral embellishment, and chipboard hearts. October 2011 Page Map sketch.
I don’t think this is a bad layout but I would agree with Christine “it’s not your best Mom”. It was fun to pull out some different papers to use. I made sure I used chipboard on the layout and the hearts turned out to be a nice (different for me) addition.

Supplies used: Martha Stewart border punch, CTMH Chocolate Cardstock, and K & Company Girl Scouts paper.
Bravo to me for using a punch! I don’t use them often but not I might have to more. I sure do like the Martha Stewart punches much better than the Fiskars ones I have. This is one of those blah layouts for me. I just don’t like it and not sure why. It’s not awful enough to redo so it counts as one more done…
