Birthday Party with Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge - September Product Spotlight Blog Hop

Welcome to our Close To My Heart Product Spotlight Blog Hop! This month we are featuring our brand new exclusive Cricut cartridge, Art Philosophy. If you are just starting out, or have arrived here from Carol's blog, you're in the right place. When you're done here, you will head over to Jena's blog and see what she has created for us.

Using the Art Philosophy cartridge, Roxie papers and coordinating cardstocks, and only those stamp sets that come with the cartridge, I created the basics of a birthday party that any Teen/Tween girl is sure to love.  (Psst, this 41-year-old Mom loves it too - too bad my birthday is past!)  I also added some Opaques in Pearl and Licorice, and Glitz in Stardust.


There are even more great stamps and cuts included in the collection to add more to this party!  There's a great banner you can cut in a large size along with the included font, and a coordinating stamp for cutting a smaller size that would look great decorating the side of a cake or on a scrapbook page of the event!

Here's a fun invitation made with a cartridge cut that has an opening cut into the front.  The details are stamped on the inside of the card.  With this card cut at 8.5" wide, it's a perfect invitation size, AND it happens to fit the invite stamp perfectly.  I kept the embellishments simple to make it easier to mail.

Of course a birthday wouldn't be complete without a card for the birthday girl.  This is made with the same cut as the invitation, but in a larger size.  This is an approximately 5x7 card, with the opening cut the perfect size for the larger shaped stamp.  All of the roses are from the cartridge as well, and super easy to roll up!

I thought this cute little box would make a nice take-home for an extra cupcake.  Now, if you buy big bakery cupcakes, you're going to have a problem with the icing.  But if you go for the homemade variety they should fit fine.  Otherwise, for sure a couple of minis should squeeze in there nicely.  The ribbon ties it closed and makes it quick to open as soon as the snack attack hits.  This ribbon is from the Designer Ribbon Pink Collection.

This is my favorite part!  Can you just see this sweet little bag filled with lip gloss, nail polish, and other assorted girly treats?!  And I just love the way that pleated ribbon looks on there!  This one is from the Designer Ribbon Red Collection.

If you're ready to move along, head on over to Jena's blog any time!  Before you order, be sure to drop me an email - I'd love to help you get some things free, and maybe even get your Art Philosophy cartridge at half price.  My recent hostess took online orders only, received $120 in free product, and got three items (including her Art Philosophy cartridge) at half-price.  Let me show you how!

Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear your comments.  If you like what you see here, I'd also love it if you became a follower or email subscriber.
