October Cross Canada Blog Hop

Welcome to our October Blog Hop featuring CTMH’s newest Cricut Collection, Artistry.


To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order or me !


We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do....by leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop!


If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Michelle at
My Creations with Michelle.
 If you came from "Arlene" of " ArlenesCreativeSpace "  then you are in the right place!

I am really playing  a lot with this cartridge and falling in love with it and I am sure that you will as well.  It comes with 3 D size Stamp Sets and a full package of assorted cardstock containing our new colors.  So, you are ready to go when you open the package!

Are you the proud owner of an Explore or an Explore Air?  If you are, you have a second option.  You can either purchase the regular Artistry Collection for $117.75 or you can purchase the Digital Collection for $93.95.  With the Digital Collection, you do not get the cartridge or the handbook.  Your Artistry code will be mailed to you along with your stamp sets and cardstock.


All of our cartridges contain 700 images.  No other cartridge on the market has that many images.  This is a great bargain and will become one of your go to cartridges.  The Artistry cartridge has a a multitude of images that any papercrafter will enjoy.


So what am I showing you today?  Using Cricut Design Space and a detailed tutorial from a fellow consultant, Melinda Everrit who posted some beautiful typewriter cards, I decided to also use a Typewriter image. I love the many layers that are cut so easily with the Cricut. I made a few errors on the purple card, but got the hang of it with the second card.  I was having so much fun that I made another card. I used the Enchantment Fundamentals Paper found on Page 109 of the Annual inspirations book and Glitter paper found on Page 145 . I also used Clear Glitter sparkles and coloured them with my Shin Han Markers. The sentiments are from a stamp set called ;Tagged with Love-Occasions- C1614


Here are my cards.








Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is "Donna " of " datsmystyle ".

If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle S Blog,  as she has the complete blog list.


Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way. We hope you will join us again next month when we will be feature Preparing for Christmas. So mark November 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.
