Cricut Artistry Blog Hop

It's time for the latest CTMH Cricut cartridge reveal! Welcome to the Cricut Artistry Blog Hop, where you'll be inspired with all of the amazing projects you can create with the brand new Artistry Collection, exclusively from Close To My Heart!

Thanks for coming from the talented Jen Rubio's blog.

The Cricut Artistry Collection now comes with the Enchantment Cardstock Combo Pack (with seven new colors!) and three coordinating My Acrylix D-size Stamp Sets. All for just $99! Better still, you can get it half off by hosting a qualifying Gathering where you'll share CTMH's great products with your family and friends.

Last week, I was on the amazing island of Key Largo, vacationing with my family and friends. We had a blast! This photo of my sweet husband and I out at dinner one evening shows just how relaxed we felt.

To make this layout yourself, my Cricut Artistry cuts were:
  • Background triangles in Whisper are Background on the <p> key, cut at 11.5" high (p. 20 of the booklet).
  • Black cardstock background of "the Good Life" is Shape on the <y> key, cut at 2.6" high (p. 16 of the booklet).
  • White Daisy cardstock "the Good Life" is Shift, Shape on the <Y> key, cut at 2.4" high (p. 16 of the booklet).
  • Black cardstock background on the diamond title shapes is Shape on the <Father> key, cut at 1.94" high (p. 40 of the booklet).
  • White Daisy cardstock diamond title shape is Layer on the <Father> key, cut at 1.73" high (p. 40 of the booklet).
  • Pear font "key largo" was cut at a height of 0.93".
