I'm Crazy For You - CTMH Artfully Sent Cricut Card

I'm continuing with my creations using the "N" key on the CTMH Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge

Today I used the "Scene" function key and cut my card at the 7" size suggested in the manual.

To add more visual interest and to make the saying pop a little bit more, I added some Lagoon cardstock behind the saying and the flower. I also dry embossed the flap on the card and then lightly sanded to created the striped front.

Products Used:
  • Chalk It Up Paper Pack
  • Black Enamel Stars
  • Unknown Ribbon
  • Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge

CTMH Artfully Sent Pocket Card Fun

One of the fun features on the CTMH Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge is the pocket card key!!  The pocket cards are designed to be cut to fit the Picture My Life sheet protectors for quick and easy scrapbook fun...but they can be OH SO MUCH MORE!!!

You can:
  • Use them as mattes on scrapbook pages
  • Fold them in half to create bag toppers
  • Write a little note on them and tuck them into lunches
  • Add them to a card base and make a card
  • And much, much more....

Today I experimented to the pocket cards on the "9" key and the "R" key

On card number 1 - I trimmed the bicycle pocket card and layered onto a white card base, then I added the saying from the "R" pocket card and added a ribbon.  Quick, easy and fun!

Remember that bicycle from card number 1?  Well I took the pieces, added them to a piece of White Daisy Cardstock and created another card!  The "Hello" stamp is from the Artfully Sent Cricut Bundle and comes with the cartridge!!

And last but not least, I used the rest of the pocket card with the saying, to create one more card.  

And there you have it... I cut two pocket cards out of a piece of cardstock from the Enchantment Paper Fundamentals pack and made three quick and easy greeting cards....and I still had quite a bit of paper left. 

Products Used:
  • Z2031 Paper Fundamentals - Enchantement Assortment
  • X254 Cards and Envelopes - White Daisy
  • Z3017 Cricut Artfully Sent Collection
  • Miscellaneous Ribbon

Artfully Sent - N Key - Love Bug

As soon as I flipped through the Artfully Sent cartridge book the first time, I knew the "N" key was going to be a favorite!!!  I love that little Love Bug and I am sure I am going to keep looking for reasons to use it.

The first card I decided to cut was the "Pop-Up" Card.  I used the Explore for mine, but on the other cricut machines you would use the "N" key to cut the outside of the card and the "N/Shift" to cut the pop-up insert.  Then you will cut the Love Bug using the Icon Key and the "n" and the "N/Shift."

I cut the "Love Bug" saying twice. Once with solid Lagoon and once with the printed paper.  Then I trimmed the flower with my scissors and layered it.

I cut an extra Love Bug for the outside of my card and repeated the pattern paper on the front to tie it all together.  I love, love, love this card.  My husband loved it so much that he asked me to create one for his Dad.  On his Dad's card I cut the numbers that represented his birthday (73) and added them to the hood, ala Herbie. LOL
