As some of you may know, I am very, very, VERY addicted to my Cricut machine. What's Cricut, you say? It's just one of the most AWESOME machines ever made, that's what! :) It's a little machine that cuts out letters and shapes from paper. You choose the size, hit a couple of buttons, and VOILA - instant scrapbook or card accent. It doesn't get much easier than that!
Imagine my utter JOY when Close To My Heart (CTMH), one of my very favorite scrapbooking companies, partnered with Provo Craft, maker of all things Cricut. I did cartwheels! And that's not easy when you're 30-something and overweight! LOL!!!
CTMH is about to launch their third Cricut cartridge, called Artbooking. The first two cartridges, Art Philosophy and Artiste, are awesome in their own right. But Artbooking completely blows them out of the water!
The cartridge is $99 and comes with three stamp sets - many of the images would be cut from this cartridge and then stamped! - and three sheets of chipboard.
Check out these CTMH samples:

This cartridge not only has shapes, letters, numbers, frames, and backgrounds, but ENTIRE scrapbook pages! All you have to do is choose your size and every page element will cut to size and be proportional. How amazing is that? No guesswork, just awesome results every. single. time. See why I love my Cricut machine? :) And I'm SO in love with this cartridge as well!
Go ahead, go ahead, you know you want to pre-order this cartridge! Preorder with me for $99 at firstname.lastname@example.org and choose from any A size stamp or Mini Medley for free. Click on the "Come and Shop With Me" tab on the top right column of this page and you can view the current CTMH catalog. If you spend $50 you'll be entered to win the Artbooking cartridge for just $49. You'll be creating amazing scrapbook pages and/or cards in no time!
Thanks for looking and leaving love! ~M
