The Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge Makes Creating So Easy!

I'm having so much fun with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge!  Trendy and sophisticated scrapbook layouts are made easy by using this new tool!
This is my take on one of the layouts featured in the new Fall/Winter CTMH Idea Book.  It features Roxie B/T Duos and one of the new embellishment packs...Bling Assortment.  Roxie is a great combination of Smoothie, Desert Sand, Tulip and Black.  The Bling Assortment is package of terrific crystal buttons and crystal and pearl stick pins.  And those 3D Roses?  Why cut with my Art Philosophy cartridge, of course! 
Making the 3D Roses is easy with the cartridge.  The first thing I tell everyone is NOT to lose the book that comes with every cartridge.  That is your guide for ever available image on the cartridge.  These roses are cut by setting the Cricut on the Font key.  Hit shift and then tell the machine that you want to cut "banner 6."  A spiral shape will be cut.  If you wish, you can ink the edges (like I did in this case) and then just roll the spiral inward.  I hold the rolled shape together with Liquid Glass and you have created a paper rose! 

I've found that I'm creating all kinds of new and wonderful things with the Art Philosophy Cartridge.  If you would like to get one for yourself, visit my website or email me with any questions.  For Now, Happy Crafting!
