Life Layout using Typeset Close to My Heart Collection

Happy Friday--I am sooooo ready for the weekend.  Today I have another layout (yeah two in one week) using the Typeset Paper Collection and the new Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge.
Waste not want not---I used scraps of some of the pattern paper for these bits and the wooden buttons also available from CTMH are tied with the black hem which I use all the time. 
My title is very simple so I can have lots of options when it comes time to add pictures to this layout.  The font is from the Art Philosophy Cartridge and I used bitty Sparkles for a little bling.  This font has a base layer and a top layer and the larger you cut the more of the bottom that shows through--these were cut at 1 1/2".

This banner is made up of 4 sections from the Milepost Shapes and three cuts from the Cricut Cartridge.  I attached them together with tiny button brads in black and a bit of black hem.  I used the Vintage Typeset Stamp set for my stamped images and heat embossed with black powder for contrast and a very cool distressed look. 
Did you know that all of the new designer papers (B&T) have a pattern border that can be used on layout and cards--so there is no waste.  I used a border with the ABC's on this one--I really love this border. 
You now I love my cuttlebug and there is actually a folder called typeset that goes with this collection perfectly--it is one of the larger folders so i went ahead and embossed all my photo mats (3 4x6 and 1 4x4) and inked the edges. 
Well I hope you have liked the projects thus far and there are more to come.  The new Idea book will be online Monday so check it out at  If you would like to place an order please let me know or you can place them on line on Monday. 
I will be sending my club info to all members on Saturday so watch for that.  There has been such a great response that I have the opportunity to open another one--so that means there are a few places left--so if you have been thinking about it--now is your chance.  Happy to answer any questions and am positive that you will love the product and all the fun we will be having--
See ya Saturday for a card here and directions to a blog hop I am in to Celebrate Pink By Design! 
Make it a great one
