Retiring Jubilee Layout 1 of 3 with Cute Cricut Ant Paper Piecings

Happy Monday crafty friends!
Hope you are beating the heat and enjoying your summer days! Today I am sharing a layout I created with the super fun Jubilee Paper Pack and coordinating Complements chipboard set from Close To My Heart. As this month winds down, this will be the last chance you have to purchase this fun set. The new Close To My Heart Annual Inspirations catalog is set to debut in August. So that means there are a lot of great products going away. You can see the retiring products HEREOkay here is my layout.




Here’s a look at my entire layout. It is a two page layout featuring papers from the Jubilee paper pack, Chipboard accents from the Complements set and some super cute little Ant paper piecings I created using my Art Philosophy cartridge and Artiste Cartridge along with my Expression. Along with the papers in the Jubilee set, I did use some white cardstock for the photo mats and some kraft cardstock to create the ants. I also used a piece of red for the little watermelon slices and a piece of bamboo cardstock for the “basket”.

Make any purchase from my Close To My Heart link and I will send you the instructions to create these adorable little ant piecings from your Art Philosophy cartridge and your Cricut Expression. No CCR, Design Studio or SVG files used. Just your Cricut Expression and your Art Philosophy cartridge and your Artiste Cartridge.

I used some cute red and white gingham ribbon and wrapped the two larger mats. I used one of the chipboard elements from the complements set. Photos will slide easily underneath.

plentyoflove-480
The plenty of love chipboard element was another perfect embellishment for this page. I used some foam tape to give it a little lift.

rooster note-480
Here is a little chipboard journaling spot I added as well. Enough room to write down a few special details.

stamped banner-480
Here’s a closer look at the little banner. I stamped the Summer Time Fun using the Keyboard Alpha Stamp set onto the little chipboard banners from the Complements set.



One last look at the entire layout.
