Autumn with Art Philosophy

Welcome to our Autumn Art Philosophy Blog Hop!  Each month we are showcasing our amazing Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge which can be purchased exclusively through a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant.




It's the time of year where leaves are changing colors, temperatures are dropping, the days are shorter, and the holidays are quickly approaching. This month we will be featuring projects with an Autumn theme made using the Art  Philosophy Cricut cartridge!  



If you just happened to come to this blog, you should start at the beginning at Lucy's blog - Love 2 Create
My project is a scrapbook page I made for a workshop that I did. Since I work in a school, I get yearly photos of myself, which can be a good thing, when you are always behind the camera.



I used numerous stamps the banner is stamped with one of the sets that comes with this cartridge, they are on pages 49, heart on page 69, long banner on page 68. The tag is on page 50 and the butterfly is on page 55 in the booklet that comes with the cartridge. the patterned paper is from the retired footloose paper pack and the rope border is from Pemberly workshop kit (retired). The cardstock used is kraft for the background, with lagoon and blush for the banner and butterflies. I also used bakers twine to accent the banner and tag. I just noticed a little bling on the one butterfly body and a few staples to attach the smaller butterflies. My name is stamped with the bohemian alphabet and the fieldtrip alphabet (retired) in pear ink. Hope you are enjoying hopping along on our autumn path.
