If you are looking for the "Everything ABCs Blog Hop", please click here.

Welcome to our March Art Philosophy/Artiste Blog Hop!   As you know, both the Artiste and the Art Philosophy cartridges are available exclusively through a Close to My Heartconsultant.  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 challenge this month features not only one of these amazing cartridges but also a "BINGO" card! 

Here is the BINGO card that our Consultants were given:

The Consultants were told they could  make anything they wanted using the Artiste OR Art Philosophy cartridge AND you work off the BINGO card posted above. Basically, you make a "BINGO" by going across, down, or diagonally and you have to use everything in that bingo line.

For my "BINGO", I went straight across the middle of the card:  "Sentiment" - "3D" - "Buttons".  Here's my project for you:

I made this cute little purse using our Artiste Cricut cartridge.  You can find this image on page 41, B1, 3D Object, < q > cut at 5" and B1, Shift, 3D Object, < Q > cut at 5". I used our Chantilly paper pack.  I used a button from the Pink Assortment and adhered it using Mini Glue Dots.  To "latch" the purse, I used our Hook and Loop Dots.  I stamped the sentiment using Cotton Candy ink which coordinates with the Chantilly paper.  The "Happy Birthday To You" sentiment came from our Perfect Fit - Birthday stamp set.


Hope you enjoyed my project!
