Close to my Heart founder Jeanette Lynton is posting a shape a day for the month of October. She is using the CTMH exclusive Cricut Cartirdge Art Philosophy.  So since it's already the 5th of the month, today we are playing catch up.  Leave a comment if you enjoy these daily postings this month.

These whimsical little dragonflies bring a fresh, summer feel to today’s featured artwork, and they are a perfect example of a base shape being accented by a layer shape. It has never been so easy to achieve such a great effect!
Shape instructions: Set size to 1 ¾” for the larger dragonfly and 1 ¼” for the smaller. For the base shape, push shift and then the fourth button on the top row. For the layer, push the “layer” feature key, shift, and then the same key. Page 24 in your booklet.

On day three of my Cricut shape-a-day, I am delighted to present to you this lovely juniper cameo box. Your Cricut machine will cut the shape for you, ready to fold up with your gift of choice inside. What will you fill it with? A delicious homemade cookie or some candy? A treasured photograph? Maybe jewelry or a gift card? That’s for you to decide!
Shape instructions: Set the size to 10”; press the “font layer” feature key, shift, and then the button in the top left corner of the key pad overlay. Page 21 in the booklet.
