I am so excited to show you this cartridge today!!!
I made this card that I am so upset that it turned out so bad.

But I wanted to share it anyway because there are such great cuts on this cartridge.

This Saturday I will spend several hours to show you all about this cartridge!
I cannot wait... I will be showing you LIVE the cartridge and how it works,
I can't wait to show you the amazing Mini Album pages I saw in the handbook.

Mini books are so popular, There are a ton of pages for Mini Albums!!!

Saturday I will explore this cartridge with you and show you items I have made from this.

9:00pm EST--- 8:00pm CST ---7:00pm MST ---6:00pm PST



I do NOT sell this cartridge....
I am not a Close To My Heart consultant.

The only place you can order is through a CTMH consultant.

August 1st you can order it here..... FROM MY MOM

She is also taking pre-orders....
You can also email her to pre-order and she will send you the forms she needs to submit your pre-order..... Her email is JackiePinter@yahoo.com



I used the Close To My Heart Artriste Cricut cartridge

I also used Echo Park That & That Charmin Collection.


I cut this card at 7" and the flowers at 2", 3" & 2 1/2"

I will show HOW to make it Saturday as well as so many other projects.





Here is the inside of the card




Here is the inking I did on one of the flowers, to make it "Bloom"






I cut the flowers and then ink them BEFORE I remove them from the cutting mat.
Make sure to let it dry before removing from the mat or they might rip.





This was Mister Huey's ink




Here are my flowers after the paper dried and I removed the excess paper.




Go through and fold between each segment.




I cut several of these word bubbles because I did not know which color of ink I wanted to use oh and sometimes an inking mistake. It is easier to use these stamps while your paper is still on the cutting mat.






This is the back of the inside of the card. You should apply adhesive down the left and right and top and bottom, but not the middle that is going to "pop"






Here is where to apply adhesive




Then line up the middle of each piece, then fold it down.



Here is the bottom attached. Then close it to attach the top.





Then open and POP!





More details on this card on Saturday....







Well Hello, Thursday!

Because Close To My Heart (CTMH) releases their catalog in the beginning of the month for the following month, people caught wind of the NEWEST Cricut Cartridge, called Artiste.

This Saturday I will spend several hours to show you all about this cartridge!
I cannot wait... I will be showing you LIVE the cartridge and how it works,
I can't wait to show you the amazing Mini Album pages I saw in the handbook.


Mini books are so popular, There are a ton of pages for Mini Albums!!!

They even have coordinating chipboard pages that you get with the cartridge not to mention the 3 sets of high quality Close To My Heart clear stamps. The stamp sets this size are Typically $25 each. So what you get is the Cartridge
(Typically $89.99, plus the 3 stamp sets $75 Plus 3 matching chipboard sheets $20.85)
This is a $185.84 for Only $99

If you look at the book below you will see that were are 5-6 images on most pages in the handbook. It really is like getting 4 cartridges. I know it is alot of money, but you REALLY do get what you pay for in this set.


Saturday I will explore this cartridge with you and show you items I have made from this.

9:00pm EST--- 8:00pm CST ---7:00pm MST ---6:00pm PST



I will be showing you all of the great features of the cartridge.
After my Design Team member showed me the book (and is letting me show you hers)
This is now my #1 top favorite EVER Cricut cartridge.
I will also have all of the DT members that sell CTMH on my blog ready for you to order from one of them. If you LOVE Art Philosophy, this cartridge puts that one to shame. Yes it is a bit more than normal cartridges, but you are getting ALOT more than normal cartridges. I KNOW this will be your favorite... Can you tell how excited I am about this. Thursday or Friday you might get a sneak peek at it :)

I will list ALL of the Design Team members who sell CTMH in August.
Here is the handbook for the Brand new CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge.
The book looks amazing....

I do NOT sell this cartridge....
I am not a Close To My Heart consultant.

The only place you can order is through a CTMH consultant.

August 1st you can order it here.....

THIS CONSULTANT IS MY MOM....
She is also taking pre-orders....

I LOVE the new layout to the beginning of the handbooks. What a great suggestion and improvement Provo-Craft made with the handbooks.... A color image of every image and feature of every page in the handbook!!! LOVE IT!!!! I also noticed this in the Quilted Christmas Handbook during last month's Hello Thursday release of cartridges.


I love these signs!! How cute would this be on a card as a moving element....
Yes you will see this this weekend as well.



Oh my goodness Fair and Festival season.... PERFECT for this page of images.
Even Rosettes!!




Here is an adorable pop-up card (VERY easy to make)
I have seen these everywhere and FINALLY a Cricut cartridge to make it.... don't miss the mail box on this page too!!




Christmas Ornaments, and they having matching chipboard for these... I am sure to have my tree covered in these this year. I will be using Metal and other FUN materials.
I cannot wait to show you that!!!



Flowers just like Flower shoppe, but even better!



Puzzle frames, how cute will this be to cut a picture from....
Don't worry you will see it Saturday too!!! You can cut more than paper, why not cut pictures?????




Here are the most adorable and useful pages, and there is chipboard with the set to match!! Wait until you see the adorable project with this page!!






Here is another mini Album with different size pages!! You will see this on Saturday too!!



Here is a Mini Album page.... again to be shown on Saturday!! So cute!!



A full page of wedding items, words, phrases, people, Font and more.



An adorable little shoe... (will be shown on Ustream Saturday)




A Diaper shaped card!!! How cute!!







You will notice all of the 3-D items and the number in red is the recommended size to cut that size or larger, due to the intricacies of the images on this page.

How great are all of these Father's Day items!!

Look at the adorable halloween pages....
LOVE the web!






Here is the item number and a picture of what you get with this cartridge.
Z1790 Cricut® Artiste Collection $99.00
