Another Cricut Artistry Layout

Still using up my stash!  In this layout I combined papers from Later Sk8r and Chalk it Up to create a back-to-school layout.

The triangle background was cut from the Artistry cartridge along with the two pennants up top.  "Dream Big" is an overlay for the pennant, and the "Be Happy Be Bright Be You" is from one of the 3 stamp sets that come with the cartridge. 

I placed some Chalk it Up pieces behind some of the triangle cut outs, and used one of the zip strips to cut out the words and mount on the page.  A little teal glitter tape adds a bit of glitz

Since I was on a roll using up my stash, I added some of our wide, black-striped ribbon.

This layout was fun to create and came together pretty quickly!  Starting to really love the Artistry cartridge.

Stay tuned for another example in a couple of days.

Brand New Cricut Artistry Cartridge and Dakota

I finally got the chance to play with my new Cricut Artistry cartridge!  As promised, I'll post pictures of  my projects here so you can see how versatile this new cartridge is.

Since I really wanted to use up some of my stash, I chose Dakota for this page.  Dakota was one of my all-time favorite paper packs and that made this page come together so easily.

Because the paper is decidedly Western, I cut 4 of the horseshoe banners from page 36 of the cartridge hand book and added them as a border just above the zip strip from one of the papers.

"The Good Life" element was on page 16 of the handbook--quick and easy to cut both layers.  The feather element at the bottom was on page 16 also.  I cut one from blue and one from black and layered them for more dimension.  The "Today" chevron is actually from one of the stamp sets that comes with the cartridge. A quick cut on my Cricut, stamped it, and done.  I love the coordinating stamps that come with Artistry.

In addition to the Artistry cartridge, you get 3 great stamp sets, and a package of the Enchantment cardstock which has all 7 of our newest colors!

And if that's not enough, when you contact me with your order for Artistry you can choose 2 free paper packs!  Choose from:

Blossom, Brushed, Chalked Up, Confetti wishes, Jackson, Pathfinding, Scaredy Cat, Seaside, Wanderful.  You can see them all on my website.  That's a $19.90 value free to you.  These paper packs won't be around much longer, so which ones do YOU want?

Stay tuned for more examples from Artistry!
