Soar

  When my August Artful Delight kit arrived in the mail I practically drooled over all the goodies packed in the box.  I had never seen papers by Authentique; they are a really nice weight and slightly textured!  When I saw the stars pattern, I knew that I wanted to make a hot air balloon scene card.  All of the papers are from the August Artful Delight kit, but the chipboard clouds are from the July Artful Delight kit.  Only the chipboard alphas are from my stash.

For more inspiration, please go to Artful Delight to see what the design team members' creations.  I am thrilled to be guest designing for Artful Delight for the month of August.  I am having a blast!

Supplies:
Cricut cartridge:  Everyday Pop-Up cut @ 3 3/4"
Paper:  Authentique  Journey collection "Jaunt" and "Promenade"; blue card stock; ivory card stock
Sentiment:  Thickers chipboard stickers "Hat Box"

That balloon is a soaring success... so cute! I am in love with this paper collection... have been reading so much about this new line... very high quality! I haven't seen it yet in person, but it sure shows well here. This must be an outstanding kit! Am glad you're having such a fun time designing.

Such a cute and fun creation, the balloon and banners are so lovely.
Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog, yep, Vegas is as hot but comparing to east coast (i lived there for 8 years), I like the dry heat better here, of course, San Francisco is a perfect get away for those extra hot days.

1. Got your email, thank you my simply elegant friend!!!
2. This creation is absolutely eye candy, and I oughta know since I'm married to eye candy *bwah hahaha*
3. This is totally meant as a compliment: I have scrapping friends who have shown their wonderful creations made with their Cricuts, but seriously, not until you came along and got a Cricut and have been using the holy beans out of it, not since you have I actually wanted to buy one!!! The things you do with it are enticing to me big time. The fonts in some cartridges are good, and the shadowing that the machine can do for those fonts is good, but typically that's been the focus of what I've seen mostly, the letters/fonts. But the things you've done with those cartridges, you've made things that are enviable, more often than not I've thought "holy crap, I wanna make that toooooooooooo!"
