Hello Friends. It has been
very nice weather here in Southern CA. I love fall. I am so sorry
that others are having such severe weather this early in the season.
Wishing all of you a Happy Thanksgiving and a wonderful time with your families. My husband and I are planning a quiet meal with just the two of us this year.
I finished my new "CTMH Cut Above Thank you card kit" in October (Z2063); but haven't had time to post it until now. It comes with all the diecut pieces that you need to create ten cards; except the ink pad and stamp set. It also includes directions to assemble the cards.
You can use any of the four sentiments in this stamp set; so you can create half with Birthday or Thank you; or whichever one you choose to create. I chose to use the Thank you sentiment from "You Mean The World To Me".(B1467) I use a lot of Thank you cards for my customers and I wanted to try this kit. I don't normally like Kraft cards; but I was drawn to this kit as soon as I saw it in the new CTMH Annual Idea book.
I added several different blue borders that I cut with my Cricut Artiste cartridge. I like to do something different than what comes in my card kits. I also created the die cuts for the inside using both the Cricut Artiste and Cricut Artbooking. I hope you enjoy my cards.

love this new cartridge! I am sold on all of the Close To My Heart Cartridges;
because they are so fabulous. This newest one is a card lovers dream. If you
have the Cricut Explore; I think it is even more fun once you figure out how to
work with it. All the cards are in one piece. You need to resize the entire
card; change colors of the pieces by ungrouping; if you want to change them; or
just click Go and figure out the colors as you change the mats. So easy! My
Cricut Explore was a fabulous investment for me. It has saved me so much time;
and advanced my creativity to a new level. I still like to add things to the
cards sometimes; and I love changing the inside of the card to the one that I
use the square or rectangle on either the Cricut Art Philosophy or Cricut
Artiste cartridge for the inside piece and add whatever you want to it. The Art
Philosophy square and rectangle have rounded corner and the Artiste has square
corners. You can also mix and match the inside pieces from other cards on this
cartridge. You just have to ungroup and click on them to hide the pieces you
don't need or don't want
to cut. You can write words or cut words; depending on your preference.
sure to check on my sidebar for the picture of a Cricut handbook page, titled
Cricut Explore Design Space. Click the picture to find the codes to use in the
Cricut Design Space for all 4 of our CTMH Cricut Cartridges. The Cricut Art
Philosophy, Cricut Artiste, Cricut Artbooking and Cricut Artfully Sent. It is
much easier to enter the codes; than searching for the individual pictures. See
the titles at the top of Narelle's page for the codes. You must enter the number
sign and the full code for it to work.
