IT'S HERE! Artfully Sent CTMH exclusive Cricut cartridge



After the long wait our new Cartridge is finally available! The above pictures aren't very good, they are from corporate shown at convention, but will give you an idea of just a few of the cards you will be able to make. Click here: Artfully Sent Z3017 to see or order the cartridge.  There are so many different types of cards available, Build A Scene, Pocket, Sentiment, Pop-Up, Swing and Picture My Life...just to name a few.  Not a card Maker?  So many images, title and the alphabet can be used in scrapbooking or other papercrafting. I just ordered the cartridge and once I receive it I will be posting different cards here. Take a look at the Artfully Sent video I posted on 8/1, oh and to the left under pics from convention there are 3 cards we made from the cartridge.  SPECIAL FROM ME: Order the cartridge before 10/1, email me after you order and I will send you your choice of 1 Reflections Paper Pack directly to you. Do not order it with your cartridge or you will be charged.  This is not a CTMH offer, this is my special.

Boo Layout

This layout was so easy to make using the CTMH Artbooking Cartridge. All cuts on the cartridge are sized perfectly for each mini book or layout. All I had to do was set my Cricut machine to 11" and each cut was perfect at the perfect size for the layout.

Graveyard Card

This fun card was actually made using one of the mini books on the CTMH Artbooking Cartridge.  I cut the graveyard in different colors the cut out the different layers and pieced it all back together making this cute layered card.

Spider Card

I made this card using the CTMH Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.The web overlay is sized for a 12x12 layout, but I sized it  to fit the 3x3 card. I sized the spider to fit the card using the Cricut Craft Room.  The spider was embossed using clear embossing powder giving it a shiny wet look.

Sneak Peek CTMH Score Board

Today's Sneak Peek is the new CTMH Score Board.  I love the size, which is just right to fit in my carry tote when I go to crops. Notice the cool swing bar which makes scoring diagonal lines easy peasy! lol

Cricut® Artfully Sent

I want to share with you some awesome new product. The first one is the long awaited new exclusive Cricut Cartridge. This one is not just for cardmakers, though it will make over 400 cards, but as we saw last year with the Artbooking Cartridge there is so much more we can do with these cartridges if we just think outside the box a bit.  I personally got to make a few cards at convention, (see the pics on the left sidebar) and love how easy they are to put together, and they are just so stinking cute!  Cartridge will be available sometime in September, I will be offering something special so leave a comment to let me know you'd like to know what the special will be.

Sneak Peak new Confetti Wishes Paper Pack CTMH

This is a card I made for a swap at my team meeting a couple of weeks ago. The card was made with one of the sheets from the new paper pack Confetti Wishes.  This cute birthday themed can also be used for non birthday cards and layouts.  Don't forget the new Annual Inspirations catalog will be online to see Friday August 1st.  Lots of new papers and tools, new colors AND new Cricut Cartridge "Artfully Sent"! Oh, and did I mention I colored with our new Markers????

Happy Flash Mob of Close to My Heart consultants

I had a great time at the CTMH convention at Disneyland. This video is of the end of the last day.  A couple of month's ago I signed up to participate in a Flash Mob (check that off the bucket list). I was so nervous but it turned out great and was so fun. The CTMH VP's were pretty surprised as we interrupted their final thank you's.

Pure Joy of Washi Tape

I love Washi tape, what about you?  I have to say I have tried several different
 brands of  Washi and CTMH's is the best. Easy tear, sticks just right and has
a nice weight to it.
