Art Philosophy is in the HOUSE!

I could not resist. I bought it and after being creative with it on Friday, I can say that I’m GLAD I splurged on it. It’s cool…really cool. Please bear with me, because posts for a while will be projects from Art Philosophy.

When I opened this cartridge I thought it might be a good idea to try the “sample” project that all cartridges have in the front of the handbook. I’ve never done one of those before but figured I’d try it on this one.

The sample project is a birthday card. I followed all instructions from the handbook, but I made 2 cards instead of one. I figured as long as I was cutting it I might as well cut two. I only used one rose per card, though. I thought that 2 roses per card was a bit busy.


I will say that creating the flowers takes some practice. I have noticed that I’m getting better with them with each one I do. I have been referencing the blog Courtney Lane Designs by Melanie for lots of amazing tutorials and tips on the Art Philosophy cartridge.


I hope you enjoyed this project. I have been having trouble not being able to comment so I’ve switched my comment box to a pop-up. Hopefully that will eliminate the problem. Thanks to all followers and those of you nice enough to leave a comment. Remember that if you have a specific question just post a comment and I’ll try to help out!

Check back on Friday for another fun Art Philosophy project! Thanks for following my blog and leaving comments. I'd love to hear from you.
