It's Your Birthday!





Welcome to our January Art Philosophy Blog Hop! We are starting a new year of blog hops for you all featuring Close to My Heart's exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  The Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge is available exclusively through a Close to My Heart consultant.

This month we are featuring a "birthday" theme for you.  In this hop, you will see projects featuring this versatile cartridge from many talented crafty ladies!  Enjoy our blog hop!

If you came from Jennifer's blog  4 Hearts Scrapbooking then you are in the right place!






These are some easy and quick to create with the Art Philosophy cartridge.  I've pledge to try and use up old paper that I have before I bought any new this year, BUT that didn't work out as you'll see coming up on Monday the 21st, and look for my 75 Creative Card Challenges that I'm launching on February 1st.   It follows the publication put out by Paper Crafts and I'd love to have you join along.  I'll be featuring Close to My Heart products only in this challenge and it will run M-F for 75 days!

Now back to these little Birthday creations.  These are perfect to drop off at your co-workers desk, or stash in you friends locker at school or the gym, put some lip gloss, nail polish, or chocolate in the heart.  I do believe that these were a gathering project a few Idea Books back, as I've said before I'm not re-inventing the wheel just having fun making cute things with paper.  Plus I love the artists at Close to My Heart.  The artwork always speaks to me, and I just have to make one or two for myself.
