Superhero Bonus!

In my last post I showed you a layout you could make from the Superhero paper packet.  I made 3 layouts so far out of that packet.  I still have some left over to make a one page layout, but I decided to get crafty (now there's a surprise!) and make a little note card for my honey.  On the new Artiste Cricut Cartridge only available through Close To My Heart (CTMH) there is a page dedicated to Father's Day.  There's the cutest little things on that page like argyle diamonds, an argyle border, a cupcake cup, a bow tie/shirt goody box, a Happy Father's Day title, and a #1 Dad sentiment.  There's also this cute little dress shirt/tie card that you can make.
It cuts out flat on the cricut and you fold it over to make a card.  I cut mine at 4 1/2 inches and it made a small card, a little bigger than gift size.  On the other side of the red Superhero paper is the side that has the "Superhero words" on it.  It has a moonstruck blue background, so if you were making a card, you would have to cut some lighter paper to go inside to write or stamp a sentiment.  I thought, hmmm....I'm going to make my honey a cute note for him to take to work and put in his desk.  

I cut a small strip of the chemistry table paper and wrote him a sweet note.  It tucked right up into the shirt!  Cute!!  You know, men really like to be reminded that they are your hero.  It feeds into their macho, caretaker/provider need.  He really liked it!  What a cute way to use some leftover paper!!!
Just a reminder that the Superhero paper packet is not in the new catalog.  It can still be ordered as long as supplies last.  The item number is X712B.  At $9.95 it is an incredible deal.  If you have a Cricut or have been thinking about buying one, you have to check out the cartridges that CTMH offers.  They are incredible deals that you won't find anywhere else!  

The Cricut® Artiste collection helps you turn everyday events into magical celebrations! The unique cartridge takes creativity to a new level allowing you to cut themed projects and shapes using a single key. Color-coded images in the accompanying booklet indicate shapes that are linked and can be cut using the same size setting for hassle-free layering and assembly. Choosing a themed project is easy with the project reference pictures, and assembling 3-D items is a snap with the separate assembly and folding guide.
With 700 images, you’ll find a themed project for any event, large or small, from Valentine’s Day, Christmas, and Halloween, to occasions like birthdays and baby showers, plus clever motifs like signage, game night, gears, timepieces, awards, and more. Use the three coordinating My Acrylix® D-size stamp sets to jazz up your Cricut accents, then splash in some Dimensional Elements shapes from the three included sets for added flair!
