The SOTM Artfully Sent Blog Hop

How exciting!  We have over 45 consultants participating in this additional blog hop this month.  If you have been hopping with us, then you have arrived from Kathy's blog here.

Remember this is a circular hop and so you can jump in at any point but if you get lost along the way you can always go back to Melinda's blog here.

The brand new Artfully Sent cartridge includes 250 card designs plus 150 other projects along with envelopes and liners.

I am busy working on my son's wedding album and I am using the retired "For Always" paper pack.  As you might imagine we took several hundred photos of the event including a few extra days in California.

The Picture My Life "For Always" cards are a perfect addition but I also wanted to incorporate the wedding colors of Outdoor Denim, Sweet Leaf and Slate.

I found several pocket card ideas in the Artfully Sent cartridge.  I created a file of both horizontal and vertical pocket cards in the 3" x 4" size.  It was quick and easy to add some scraps, stickers and embellishments.

You can find the Cricut Design Space file here

Here is the original side of the page.  I switched out the top photo because I had two of the same pictures -duh!

Here is the other side of the page.

Then I realized that I have not finished my oldest son's wedding album- his was finished but not mine!  SO a few pictures and pocket cards and one side is done!

They look like chalkboard paper in the photos but it is actually Grey Wool from the retired Bliss paper pack.

Now it is off to Melinda's blog here to see what fabulous artwork she has created!

Your Artfully Sent PML cards look fantastic side-by-side with your photos and coordinate wonderfully with your purchased For Always set.
