First ARTISTE Project

Hello friends! I hope you are enjoying your week so far. I have literally been planted in my craft room because I've been playing with my new Cricut/CTMH Artiste cartridge! I just became a CTMH consultant (more on that later, I'm still getting set up) so I was able to get it early. Let me just say that I thought they topped out with Art Philosophy, but I stand corrected. This cartridge is soooo amazing! Let's just say that there is a new Big Papa in my craft room!

Usually when I get a new cartridge there are maybe a few images that I want to make right away, but I literally want to make every single one on this cartridge! If I could have only one cartridge for the rest of my life, it would be this one. Okay so (breathe) ...... my head has been swimming with ideas & I've been messing around with some images & the coordinating stamps (yes, you get 3 stamp sets included when you buy the cartridge!), but I am now moving on to some complete projects, lol. My ADD is in overdrive right now!

I will be posting new projects throughout the next week (or maybe month .... or year, lol) & today I have the first one....
