For today's birthday project, I decided to create a simple two-page birthday layout using Close to My Heart's Elemental paper pack.  This will coordinate with the birthday card I made yesterday.   I did use our exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to help me on this layout.




I'm not sure if you can tell from the pictures, but I did use on of the borders from our stamp set called Eclectic Edges on the long strip of cardstock since I didn't want to leave the piece plain.

These are the images I cut with the AP cart:

p. 21, A1, < Circle1 > at 11"  (cut in half)
p. 70, E10, shift < Cupcake > at 2"
Letters cut at 1 1/2"

I used the Celebrations stamp set which is one of three stamp sets that comes with our Art Philosophy Cricut Collection.   I also used our Just Blooms Flutter Paper Shapes which are the little butterflies on the page.  I edged them with Lagoon and Sorbet just like my card from yesterday.  Oh!  I almost forget to tell you, I used the glitzy buttons from the Bohemian Assortment.

I am also giving away Blog Candy for this blog hop.  It is a stamp set from Close to My Heart called Thoughtful Tidings.  This set was the February Stamp of the Month and is no longer available for purchase.  It has a $17.95 value.
