Artiste in August Blog Hop

Welcome to our Artiste in August Blog Hop!  15 consultants for Close to My Heart are participating in this circular blog hop for the 31 days in August! 

If you  have been hopping along with us, then you have arrived from Rebecca Kings' blog   Isn't her work awesome?  The shape we have selected for this first day is the Magazine file on pg. 37 in the handbook.  It was very easy to assemble and I used the Assembly Book instructions to help me out!  Be sure to download and save the Cricut handbook file to your computer to refer to the shapes that we are using for the day.

I had an idea that everyone would create a card box using this file so I decided to mix things up a bit and create a gift box for one of the prizes at my upcoming Open House.  The size of the magazine file is 6" which is the default size for this image.

I used the S1208 August SOTM Baroque Borders to accent the border and tied the new Z1781 Black Striped Grosgrain Ribbon around the file to create the gift box.
One of my lucky customers will receive this as a gift for winning a Giddy Up Bingo Game!  It is a  Ruby stamp pad, NEW Alcohol markers (stand-in at the moment :)) and re-inker from one of CTMH NEW Colors!

Now it is on to Jessica Wilson's blog where I am sure you will find another lovely Cricut design.  If you would like to go back  to any of these designers, just click on the links below:
