Mojo Monday #260

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve participated in any challenges and I’ve really missed it. I didn’t feel like folding laundry this afternoon, so I got crafty instead!


I cut the flowers and decorative square with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge from Close To My Heart. I used Chocolate cardstock and the Avonlea paper pack as well as our fabulous new burlap ribbon. A few Sparkles and a Bling Gem finish off this quick and easy card. The sentiment is from last year’s convention stamp set, Dreams. Ink colors are Chocolate and Juniper.

See you tomorrow with another creation from this afternoon. Now I need to go fold that laundry……

Happy Crafting!



Day 27!…..

I can hardly believe that August is almost over. I have been having so much fun with the new Artiste cartridge! If you have been hopping with us, you should have just come from Adeline’s blog. Keep on hopping from link to link until you come full circle.

Today we are featuring the cupcake box on page 69. The Book recommends cutting it at 3.5”, but I found that 3” fits a standard cupcake that you would bake at home much better. I also discovered that if you cut it at 2.5”, it will fit a votive candle very nicely. These would make great favors for a shower or wedding.DSC07183DSC07186DSC07190

This box has an insert with a circle cut out to hold your cupcake from sliding around in the box and a lid with a window cut out. One of the most helpful features of the Artiste cartridge is that projects that involve multiple pieces are all cut proportionally without having to change the size, just another way that Close To My Heart continues to develop products that make your crafting “faster, simpler, easier”.

This video demonstrates this feature of the cartridge.

Next stop on the Blog Hop is Paisley’s Playhouse.

Happy Crafting!
