Artiste in August: Day 1 Magazine File

Don’t get lost!  If you’re on the SOTM blog hop, it’s the next post below!

Welcome to the Artiste in August Blog hop!  Yep, I’m doing two blog hops today.  LOL.  This one is going to go all month long!  There’s a few of ladies who have taken up the challenge to post something from the Artiste Cricut cartridge every day this month.  Today’s challenge is the Magazine File.  This was one of the first things I created with my cartridge as I had just finished making several of these from instructions I had found on a blog.  I must say, this one was MUCH easier and MUCH faster.  I love the elegant curves! 

If you’re on this hop, you probably came from Gloria's blog.  
If you didn’t, don’t worry, just keep hopping!  I have a full list at the bottom of this post. 

I made this magazine file using the fit to page setting on my Expression.  It’s great, it will fit more than a dozen A2 sized cards and a few envelopes.  The stamp “Hi” is one of the many stamps included in the Artiste Cricut Bundle. 
Magazine file Dotty CTMH Artiste CraftyLalia

All products are from Close to My Heart!  The paper is from May’s Dotty For You special.  I have tons of it.  If you want some and don’t mind paying shipping on 12x12 paper, let me know.  I have a couple more packets available to sell.  If you would like the new Idea Book and get the Artiste Cricut Bundle for just $94.05, click here. 
Now on to the next stop on this hop!  Becca Kings’s blog.
