Sunday Funday with Artfully Sent

   Happy Sunday, everyone! I am sitting here watching the Packers fail miserably at stopping the Lions from scoring. So I decided to post something fun and exciting instead!

    Have you all had a chance to look at the new Artfully Sent Cricut Collection yet? I LOVE this collection! I received mine in the mail last week while I was on vacation, but had to wait until yesterday to open it! It was killing me that it was sitting there waiting for me all week!

    This collection comes with some amazing new items:
  • Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge with over 400 completed and unique projects fully designed and ready for assembly
  • Over 700 images total including a full font, multiple project function keys, and matching envelopes with liners!
  • 3 D-sized stamp sets: a coordinating font, a frames set, and a sentiments set
  • a full pack of White Daisy Cardstock
    I like to think of this cartridge as the "Artbooking solution for card makers"! It's perfect for creating fun and interactive cards, tags, and so much more for all your crafting projects! Here are some of my favorite projects created from this cartridge so far:

Here are a couple examples of Pop-up cards and Background Overlay cards
Here are a couple more examples of cards: A Border edge Card and two Background Overlay cards!
Pop-up Card with Icon die-cut pieces that can be added for extra flair and fun!
A Swing card example with an add on liner for added detail!
A Build-a-Scene Card that has interactive layers and pieces that make fun and unique cards!
Another example of a Build-a-Scene card, but with a front flap instead of a Tri-fold.
An example of a Border Edge card that adds just a little added detail to your cards!
An example of a Sleeve card which can hold a 4x6 picture or other memorabilia!
Sleeve cards can also be sized down to fit gift cards and/or journaling tags! These are so fun!
An example of a Sentiment card backed with fun pattern and solid color cardstock pieces to make it pop!
Did you see that this cartridge also makes PML cards??? The left picture is a 4x6 PML card mini album, and on the right is a sleeve card with journaling in it!
Here are a couple other ways to use the images from the Artfully Sent cartridge. A coupe of the cards were cut down and added to a scrapbook page (left), and a treat box (right)! I love these cute details that are easy embellishments for all my projects!
The other amazing (and super helpful) thing about this cartridge are the matching envelope die-cuts and the matching liners that can be cut and added! I love this look so much, but have struggled to reproduce liners that look natural. This will be the perfect solution for me to get that completed and professional look to my handmade cards!
Here is another view of an envelope with a patterned paper liner, and some added stamping on the outside! So stinkin cute!

    Did you also know that this Wednesday, September 24th, I will be featuring this amazing new cartridge at a brand new Crafting with Cricut Class from 6-8pm!  We will be making a couple of the cards from the cartridge, and an envelope and liner to match!

    Since I just opened my cartridge yesterday, I am working on pictures, projects, and pricing for that workshop today! So stay tuned on my Facebook page for all those details to be added!

    If you're ready to order this awesome collection for yourself, visit my online shop and get yours today! Don't forget....when you purchase the Artfully Sent Cartridge from me this month, you get to choose 2 Cricut compatible stamp sets of your choice! It's an awesome deal to get started on some amazing projects! 

    I hope you enjoyed looking at these fun projects today, and that it has inspired you to get crafty today! If you have any questions or would like to sign up for the Cricut Class on Wednesday, let me know! I have plenty of room for more guests!

    Have a great rest of your day, everyone, and until next time:

Here's to life, love, and creativity!
