Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop

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.  If you are visiting from Audrey then you are in the right place, if not, please go and start from the beginning at

Here is what I came up with:
The paper that I used for the base and the mat was just from my stash. Sorry that I don’t remember. The paper that I used on the flowers as well as the letters is from a K and Company value stack that I got a while back ago when I started to craft. The gingham ribbon is from Joann’s. As for the satin box trim I received as gift from a friend as well as the bling. The photo is mated on a flap. So I can open it up and write a little story about that day at the park without taking away from that photo. 

The cuts I used are as follows.
The mat- pg 69 @ 11 inches
The flowers-pg 50 @ multiple sizes (cut different size and don’t remember which ones I used)
And the font is also from the Art Philosophy cartridge.  

Next you should go to Darla
