I have been busy keeping up with my Facebook page, but keep neglecting to stop over here to post as well! SO I am making my New Year’s resolution a bit early…or is it a bit late? Either way, each time I post to my Facebook Page Jen’s Scrappy Pages, I will post here as well!! I may not have a LONG LENGTHY post each time, but I know what you really want to see….ART!! lol
Each month I participate in 2 different swaps. The Humble Artist’s Swap, as I had posted last time. But I also hold a monthly swap with consultants from my team and also a few fellow consultants that are not on my team. I LOVE participating in swaps because it forces me to sit down and challenge myself to create something with a specific color scheme or paper pack.
For our team swap in November, we used the papers/colors from the Frosted papers and I chose to created something from one of Close to my Heart’s Cricut cartridges. Art Philosophy was the first cartridge that CTMH introduced in 2011 and I hate to admit it, but with the introduction of Artiste in 2012 and Artbooking this summer, I forgot how stinking cool Art Philosophy is!!!
Having said that, I created this sweet stocking card using the Card function on the cartridge. What is SUPER COOL about it is that not only does it cut out the little stockings from the center of the card, you can also cut out each stocking separately. In addition to cutting out each stocking, you can cut out the toes, heals and top of the stocking for added dimension!
