For Always

Welcome to our February Art Philosophy/Artiste Blog Hop!   As you know, these cartridges are available exclusively through a Close to My Heart consultant.  If you don't already have a Consultant that you are currently working with, please contact one the Consultants in our hop with any questions you have!

Our theme this month features not only one of these amazing cartridges but also a brand NEW paper pack from Close to My Heart - "For Always".   In this hop, you will see projects featuring one (or both!) of our versatile Cricut cartridges with this paper pack from many talented crafty ladies!  Enjoy our blog hop!  

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Lucy's blog – Love 2 Create.   If you came from Thedora of  Celebrate Crafts then you are in the right place!

For my project I used the Art Philosophy Cartridge for cut a pillow box.  All my cuts came from this awesome cartridge.  The frame for the sentiment is layered cardstock, I wanted it to look as though it were chipboard.  I used Smoothie Cardstock for the rolled 3D flowers, as well as the outside of the frame.  The sentiment is stamped with Versamark, and then I used Black Embossing Powder  and my heat gun to set the embossing.  I just love the shine.  I also added some Almond Glitz Glitter Gel to the Pearl Adhesives and the edges of the flowers.
