August Artiste Blog Hop

Welcome to our August ARTISTE Blog Hop! Each month we will showcase a feature of the amazing ARTISTE Cricut cartridge which can be purchased exclusively through a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant.
We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous lineup with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects AND some blog candy!!!
This month we will be showcasing a different page from the Artiste cartridge! Did you know there were 700 images on this cartridge?? That's right -- 700!!!
If you just happened to come to this blog, you should start at the beginning at Lucy's blog -
My project is from page 41 of the Artiste manual...A mini gift purse. I used Pacifica card stock with the front pouch cut from the Dakota Paisley paper. A Pearl Badge Button from the Wrangler Assortment embellishes the latch which is held closed with a Hook & Loop Dot. I sponged some Color Ready Ribbon in Pacifica to grace the pocket, and topped the bow & handle with Bitty Sparkles.
The next stop on your blog hop fun is Laura W.
