Christmas in November

Welcome to our Christmas in November Blog Hop where we are showcasing the exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge which can be purchased exclusively through a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant.

It's hard to believe that it's already November and that Thanksgiving is less than a week away. And well, that means, it's almost Christmas! We have created Christmas themed projects for you and hope to inspire you to get started on YOUR Christmas creations.

If you just happened to come to this blog, you should start at the beginning at Lucy's blog - Love 2 Create.  If you came here from Diana's Free Moments blog, then you're in the right place!

My project is a Christmas Box all decorated up with Cricut cuts from both the Art Philosophy and Artiste cartridges.  My project also uses the Pear and Partridge paper packet from Close to My Heart as well.


Art Philosophy - 
Pg 68 font / no shift for flowers
Pg 46 shift for holly leaves

Artiste - 
Pg 80 no shift for Merry Christmas

Other supplies:
Pear and Partridge Paper Package
Wooden box
Wooden snowflakes
