Cricut cartridge Art Philosophy

Hey everyone! I'm so excited to share a little bit of info on a new Cricut cartridge Art Philosophy that will be released in August. Its by a company called Close To My Heart. The NEW cartridge will ONLY be sold by a Close To My Heart Independent Consultant.

I have found a very friendly and trust worthy consultant Tamara Stirens Shepard.

Lets talk more about this cartridge is filled with 700 shapes hand-selected by company founder and CEO Jeanette Lynton. The price for this cartridge will be $99 for the cricut bundle.It comes with 3 stamps sets and 3 sheets of coordinating chipboard (called "dimensional elements"). There is also over 10 more stamps sets that have coordinating images on the cartridge that can be purchased separately. The stamps sets that are additional range from $7 to $18.

I am planing on having a online face book party for everyone whom would like to order this really cool cartridge and/or any other items. If any of you would like to learn more about Close To My Heart PLEASE feel free to email me at or on my Facebook page.

Heres a photo of some of the cuts

I thought that I would try out my new Cricut Cake machine. 
My Cupcakes
(Keep on reading you wouldn't want to miss out on my BLOG CANDY!) I made cupcake wrappers using Cricut lite Cupcake Wrappers cartridge. I'm not real sure on the name of the paper that I used but it was blue plaid with small snow flakes on it.  I cut out the wrappers out using my Cricut Expression at 1 3/4 inches then wrapped them around my cupcakes. I then a iced the cupcakes and topped them with a topper that was made out of card stock. ( it came in the same package so still not sure of the name/brand sorry :). )  Next I used the Cricut Cake with WHITE frosting sheets I cut out mittens. To cut out my mittens I used Holidays Cake cartridge. I hope y'all enjoyed my blog hop. Now hop on  down to see the photos.

Tonight we had a summer party. As I was playing with my Cricut the kids all keep asking can we make cards tooooooo PLEASE.... so I broke down and let them. They each worked as hard as they could, talking about how the sick kids would love these. At first I really didn't want all these kids playing with my Cricut. But now that were all done, they have opened my eyes. Each one of these sweet angels showed me how at no matter what age you are you can help others. God bless each and everyone. <3
