Card using the New Artistry Cricut Cartridge and Zoe Paper

Here is another card made with the exclusive new CTMH Artistry Cricut Cartridge.  I have been having fun experimenting with some of the new images.  This shape is on page 13 of the booklet.  It is shown as a jewel but I used it like a mosaic by backing different sections with different patterns of the Zoe paper.  The banner and overlay are on page 46.  The Zoe colors are very "fresh" looking. 
If you would like to see all 700 images on this wonderful cartridge, just click on the link below.

Joyful Stars August Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars August Blog Hop.  I'm so glad that you joined us this month.  If you have come from Nancy's Creatively Artsy Blog, then you are on the right track.  It is a circular hop so you can start anywhere and finish when you get back to the first blog.  We have so many fantastic new products to show you.  It was really hard to choose.  I have a card for you using the new Exclusive CTMH Cricut Cartridge Artistry and the Zoe paper pack.  The cartridge has 700 images (just like our other cartridges) and is great for both cardmaking and scrapbooking.

It is an easel card that uses the cake overlay (Icon-1 shift) on page 18 of the Artistry booklet.  The cake overlay is backed with Zoe B & T paper and Coral Glitter trim.  The sentiment is Shape and Shape Shift Shift on page 19 of the booklet.  It is mounted using mounting tape so the card will stand. 

I really like the colors and patterns of the Zoe paper.  These products are available right now!  No need to wait until the new Idea Book is available on September 1st.  
Please contact me if you have any questions or need help with anything.

Now it is time to hop over to Andrea's Blog.

Zoe Card and Some Brand New Products

 Spring and Summer have been so busy that I have not had time to be creative. I have had fun - just not creative fun.  Close to My Heart has some great new products that are sure to inspire everyone's creativity.  I just received the brand new Cricut Cartridge called Artisrty along with the paper packet Zoe and the August Stamp of the Month.  Of course, it did not take long before the table was covered with paper, glue and stamps! So now I finally have a card to show you today that uses all three new products.
I just love the colors and patterns in the Zoe Paper Pack!
The new Artistry Cricut Cartridge is full of new images for both cards and scrapbook projects.
The most exciting news is that all these products are available right now!  Be sure to contact me if you have any questions or need help with anything.
