Rose Blossom Blog Hop - Art Philosophy Layout

Welcome to the Rose Blossom Blog Hop! Come follow Close To My Heart consultants from the Rose Blossom team as we share our creations made using one of the three cartridges that will be retiring after July - Art Philosophy, Artiste and Artfully Sent.

If you came here from Kim's incredible blog, you are on the right path. If you get lost along the way, come back here and go to the bottom of the page for the blog hop list.

Inspiration: I'm taking this awesome Scrapbook & Cards Today online class, and this was our second week layout. The original layout design was actually oriented so the photos were vertical, but I wanted to use horizontal photos, so I flipped the layout.

Cricut Cartridge: I used Art Philosophy to create all those fun shapes. They're actually ornaments, but I just thought they were a neat shape and were simple enough to create rows and layers using different paper patterns. Besides the cartridge, the Zoe paper pack, Aqua Dots and Flamingo Dots will also be retiring. Fortunately, the White/Gold Glitter Paper is staying. :)

Technique: I cut the Art Philosophy shape in different sizes on different pieces of patterned paper (click here for the Design Space file).  I created rows of various shape layers (some just have one, while others have 2 or 3 stacked on top of each other). Once everything was glued down, I used my sewing machine to create stitching through the center of each shape.

Now it's time for you to keep moving on the hop!  Head on over to Kristine's wonderful blog and see her beautiful artwork!

Such a clever way to use that sketch. I love all your cut outs and the variety in size, shape, color and texture. The white Glitter Paper really adds so much. Beautifully done!

This is absolutely delightful to look at. All those little details and the creative way you used the shapes with Zoe is so perfect Morgan. Love your style and design sense. Thanks for the inspiration. Will see you virtually next week I hope?! Take care and keep creating!

This turned out so cute! The ornaments do stand on their own just fine! Way to go thinking outside of the holiday box!
