I am the last blog in this hop so feel free to take a look around at other creations.  Here is my creation for the blog hop.  

I made this coin envelope mini book using CTMH products, my Cricut Artiste and Art Philosophy cartridges that can only be purchased at CTMH.
From the Artiste cartridge I cut the coin envelopes from page 37
and decorated them as see below

These are the tags for each of the envelopes also cut from the Artiste cartridge also on page 37.  I inked the edges of the envelopes using ink pads from CTMH, cranberry, gold rush, blush, slate and sorbet.  The inks matched the paper colors nicely.
Some of the flowers were cut from both Art Philosophy and Artiste cartridges.  The Pin Wheel was cut from Page 50 of the Artiste cartridge.  

I used the Dream Pop paper pack as seen below.  Don't you just love the vibrant colors?  This paper pack was only sold during the month of May 1st through May 31st for 10.00 when you purchased 35.00 in merchandise.

The pink coin envelopes were cut at 4 1/2 inches, the grey (looks brown) is 5 inches the red and orange are 6 inches and the green and yellow are 6 1/2

You can purchase the Cricut Artiste Collection here~     or if you would like to place an order for any of the products used you can visit my Close To My Heart site:

    1. Josie I did not know this cut was on that cartridge either. I was on you tube looking at videos on how to make coins envelopes when I saw I already had it on the Artiste cartridge. I love this cartridge.
