Art Philosophy Blog Hop

If you are arriving from Crafting with Courtney's blog, you're in the right place. 

Welcome to the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop. We are a group of Close to my Heart consultants (well most of us) and will be show casing the very versatile Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  

Here is a spring floral arrangement I made using the Close to my Heart, exclusive, Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and the National Scrapbooking Month special offer, called Dotty for You.





I cut lots of 2D flowers in various sizes using a couple of different patterned papers from the Dotty for You paper pack.  It was super fun to sort & nest them, making each so very different.  I inked a few of the flowers using Sky, Sweet Leaf, Sunset, Smoothie & Lagoon Ink.  I used reed diffuser rods, spritzed with a mixture of alcohol & Topiary reinker to color the rods.

The flower pot is from the Dollar Store & garnished with some coffee beans & CTMH ribbon.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog.  Hope you are following regularly.

Now you can hop on over to Audrey's blog
