Art Philosophy Bears Paper Piecing Layout


Happy Tuesday crafty friends,
I hope you’re Tuesday is a terrific one so far. For those following along with the Psalm reading for the counting of the Omer, here is today’s passage.

ט (Tet)
65 You have treated your servant well, 
Adonai, in keeping with your word. 
66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge, 
because I trust in your mitzvot. 
67 Before I was humbled, I used to go astray; 
but now I observe your word. 
68 You are good, and you do good; 
teach me your laws. 
69 The arrogant are slandering me, 
but I will wholeheartedly keep your precepts. 
70 Their hearts are as thick as fat, 
but I take delight in your Torah. 
71 It is for my good that I have been humbled; 
it was so that I would learn your laws. 
72 The Torah you have spoken means more to me 
than a fortune in gold and silver.

Psalm 119: 65-72


Blessings to you as you read and meditate on His word as we continue to count our days to Shavuot. Now for my project for today. I worked with some of the lovely paper from the Ivy Lane collection. I once again turned to my Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and my Cricut Artiste Cartridge. here is what I came up with.


Here is a look at my completed layout. As I said, I used all papers from the Ivy Lane Paper Pack and the Ivy Lane Compliments. I did add some extra white paper for the photo mats and some cream and kraft colored paper for some of the bear pieces. 



Here’s a closer look at one of the cute little bears. I created her from cuts from my Art Philosophy cartridge. I did also use some plain white paper to cut out the flower stems. I then inked them with some Pear ink from my Adventure Ink Pad set. I also used some Barn Red ink from the Enchantment Ink Pad set for the bear’s brown pieces. I also used some Pebbles Inc, dry decorator chalks for the bear’s facial features.




Here is a closer look at my title. Again, all of the die cuts come from the Art Philosophy cartridge. The little stickers in the centers of the flowers as well as the little flower on the heart are all on the Ivy Lane compliments set.


Here’s what you get with the complements sticker set. 
Two sheets of heavy weight cardstock stickers.

Here is a closer look at the pretty label. This too is a part of the Ivy Lane Compliments set.

Here is a closer look at eh photo mat. I wrapped it with one of the Ivy Lane paper pack’s Zip strip. The zip strip is the other side of the information strip on all the CTMH decorative papers. Such a clever idea so that we can use EVERY bit of our paper! The charming label is adhered to the strip so a larger photo can easily slide underneath. 


Here is a closer look at the other cute little bear. 


One final look at the entire layout. 

In case you missed it, here are the other two projects I made with the same sticker set and paper pack. I only added in some Black, White and or Kraft cardstock to complete them as shown.

For this one, I only added in some White cardstock and some kraft cardstock for the mats.

For this one, I only added some black cardstock for the mats, letters and oval lace cut.

So you see, for the price of the paper collection and complements, you can get a lot of scrappy bang for your buck. You don’t have to mat your photos with the mats I used, but let’s face it, what crafter doesn’t have some basic black,white and or kraft cardstock in their stash?
