For Always

Welcome to our February Art Philosophy/Artiste Blog Hop!   As you know, these cartridges are available exclusively through a Close to My Heart consultant.  If you don't already have a Consultant that you are currently working with, please contact one the Consultants in our hop with any questions you have!

Our theme this month features not only one of these amazing cartridges but also a brand NEW paper pack from Close to My Heart - "For Always".   In this hop, you will see projects featuring one (or both!) of our versatile Cricut cartridges with this paper pack from many talented crafty ladies!  Enjoy our blog hop!

So for my project, I decided to put together our For Always Workshop on the Go Cardmaking Kit.    

With this kit, you get all the "fixin's" for making a set of 15 cards, including envelopes!  There is also an exclusive stamp set also included with this kit.  Here's a picture of the kit:

Another neat feature of this card kit is that there are images that DO coordinate with our Artiste Cricut cartridge BUT you don't have to have the cartridge (it would make it a little easier to use the hearts since you wouldn't have to hand cut them).

Your next stop on our "For Always" hop is Darla of Caution: Stamping is Contagious.

Here is the complete lineup in case you get lost along the way:
  1. Lucy ~ Love 2 Create

  2. Nicely done, Lucy! The cards are very versatile, so having 5 each of the three wouldn't be an issue in my household! :)
