Art Philosophy Cartridge Collection for Cricut



Close To My Heart is happy to introduce the exclusive Cricut® Art Philosophy collection! We’ve worked with Provo Craft* to bring you a Cricut® cartridge filled with 700 shapes hand-selected by company founder and CEO Jeanette Lynton. 
Simply insert the cartridge into your Cricut® machine (sold at retail stores) and you’re ready to cut any of the shapes with the touch of a button! Choose from stunning rosettes, unique gift boxes, elegant doilies, crafty banners, and more. The exclusive images are incredibly versatile, and many are designed to be used with specific My Acrylix® stamps for real eye-popping power!


Bring your artwork to life with stamps and chipboard Dimensional Elements! When you purchase the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, you’ll also receive three exclusive D-size stamp sets and three sets of Dimensional Elements designed to perfectly coordinate with images on the cartridge. That’s a retail value of over $120 for just for $99! Stamp on your Cricut shapes; cover your Dimensional Elements with a Cricut shape; or cut, stamp, and then cover!


Numerous My Acrylix® stamp images in our Idea Book  coordinate perfectly with images on our Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. When you see the Cricut icon or a stamp image outlined in red in the Idea Book, you'll know there’s a matching shape on your Art Philosophy cartridge. Cut out the coordinating shape with your Cricut machine using the setting indicated on the stamp’s carrier sheet, then stamp your image on the base shape—quick and easy!


Contact me to order your Cricut® Art Philosophy collection (Z1686) today (available August 1, 2011).

Heart 2 Heart Challenge: Doily and Lace

The challenge at Heart 2 Heart this week is to use doilies and/or lace in our paper crafting.

For this 5 x 7 inch card, I chose the Close To My Heart Bliss papers, Find Your Style stamp set butterfly, Celebrate Life stamps, Opaque Pearls, Sheer Ribbon, and a white paper doily.

Though I haven't had much creative "me time" lately with grand-girls keeping us extra busy, I definitely wanted to enter this challenge, since I showcased this card for a recent workshop I held.

Hey, how do you like my lacey blog background?! Fits right in, doesn't it?

Skip over to the Heart 2 Heart blogsite to see many more gorgeous creations!

Happy new week, everyone!
