Artiste In August Day 1

So this is the start of out Artiste in August! Artitiste in August is to show the versitility of Close To My Heart's new Cricut cartridge, Artiste! All the consultants doing the blog hop have a shape, we will all create something with that shape and post it on our blogs for you to see. Make sure and visit all the blogs to see all the great things you can do! Also know when you get the Artiste collection it comes with 3 stamp sets and 3 dimensional elements! That makes the package a screaming deal at $99.99.

The Artiste Collection!

For the first day we are working with the magazine file (pg 47 in the cut-out guide and 18 in the assembly book). When I saw this I automatically thought, card collection holder! I think it would be great as a gift for the person who hates to buy cards!

Magazine File and cards

 The Magazine File was cut at 6 inches on the Cricut, with material saver on. I used some left over Dotty For You paper, which sadly was a special and is no longer available.

The shape you see on the spine is from the August Stamp Of The Month, which if you buy the Artiste Collection is only 5 dollars! It is really a great buy!

The stamp set used on the card is Love Cluster and is still available! It was in the Spring/Summer idea book, but I can still get it for you!
