Artfully Sent FUNN Series - Pocket Card & Scene FUNNctions


I hope this Sunday FUNN Series showing the Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge has been helpful. There is a LOT there!
Today is the last of the series, but just the beginning of the creative FUNN!

JUST THE FACTS, Ma'am, JUST THE FACTS
And that is the everyday price, no 4 am Black Friday special!

So, it was Sunday afternoon. I grabbed some cardstock, this cartridge, and started cutting.
All of these projects are my very first attempts - some aren't perfect - but all are cute!

For this series, I used only one key. It was the "7" and "&" key, found on page 7 in the guide.
I cut everything the size suggested.



The Pocket Card choice gives you some cute options for Picture My Life (or Project Life) sized cards. These hardly need to be used ONLY for those two applications, though!
Here the 4' X 6" card has been attached to a card base for a quick happy card.



The smaller Pocket Card was used in the pop-up card as a base for the sentiment and cupcake icon focal point.


You can see what happened to the "Good Times" leftovers from the card, can't you?
That banner, by the way, is one of my one piece banners - see how on this video


Ooooo - depth!


This was my first card made from this cartridge and it isn't very perfect-o.
But the key and the cool cuts this FUNNction offers makes the whole cartridge worth it.


To see the past Sunday FUNN-day Series on the Artfully Sent Close To My Heart Cartridge posts, here you go....




Please drop in tomorrow morning for Stamp of the Month Monday - I've got something cute for you!

Stamp of the Month Monday - Getting "A ROUND"


Flipperoo the round stamp - stamp with the back side - then stamp on top with the "right" side.


You can make this in your favorite color combinations!
What a great background would this make on scrapbook layouts?
Very great!

There are a lot of FUNN stamps in this set - I have so much FUNN using it
This is only available until the end of November and you can get yours for only $5 with a $50 purchase. 
Hey, I know, get ten $5 Studio J layouts and get this for only $5.
Wow, that would be 20 pages!


Do you recognize these colors?

Artfully Sent FUNN Series - Pop-Up Function

I am here to show you why you need this cartridge - ready?

JUST THE FACTS, Ma'am, JUST THE FACTS
And that is the everyday price, no 4 am Black Friday special!

So, it was Sunday afternoon. I grabbed some cardstock, this cartridge, and started cutting.
All of these projects are my very first attempts - some aren't perfect - but all are cute!

A "normal" card.
Abra da bra...Open Sesame...


POP UP FUNN!


Plus cupcake icons, stamped sentiment from ensemble, and the 3 x 4 card cut out!


This could really make a birthday FUNN - see my oops on the cupcake in back?


It is almost like when Clark Kent - a mild mannered reporter (front of the card in this case) transforms into Super Man (the pop up inside of the card in this case).

Would this card make their day? 
If the answer is yes, you need this little stamp set!

Of course if you want to make a floral card, this set is a strong contender!
