Art Philosophy Images

I knew the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge would be pretty amazing, but I had no idea how much fun I would actually have with it! There is a lot of variety packed into one awesome cartridge. The photos below will show you exactly how many images you can cut using Art Philosophy. Then multiply it by all the incremental sizes on your Cricut - wow!

Remember, too, that many of the stamp images in the Idea Book coordinate with an Art Philosophy image, making it easier than every to add stamped images to your cards and scrapbook pages. Look for the images outlined in red throughout the Idea Book.

Ali Edwards video

I enjoyed the ideas in this Ali Edwards video. She is one creative lady! I also love that she uses CTMH products in some of her work - our ink, in this case. She might also be using one of our acrylic blocks, but I'm not sure. Anyway - enjoy!

Just a quick reminder to let me know if you plan to attend the August Creative Club on Wednesday, August 24 (7:00 pm) or Saturday, August 27 (9:00 am). We'll be making the darling card set pictured here. The $10 fee can be paid on the day of the Creative Club, but I need to know how many are attending so there are plenty of supplies!

Give me a call (309-826-6705) or send me an e-mail by 8/11: We're going to have a great time, so you won't want to miss it! See you there.

August SOTM - Wicked

The August Stamp of the Month, Wicked, is available starting today. I'm not usually a Halloween person, but this stamp set is just so classy and fun that I've had a great time using it. That is a witch with attitude! 

We've made it even easier to get the D-size Stamp of the Month (available only in the featured month): place an order for $50 or more, and you get the SOTM for $5. You may also purchase the SOTM for full retail price ($17.95). That's it! Couldn't be easier! To make it even sweeter, if you purchase the SOTM for $5, you will get this cute additional stamp set free (Typeface Alphabet)!  

Here are a few items made using Wicked. (I love the name - My daughter and I are going to see "Wicked" in a couple of months!)

This cute pillow box and the bracket were cut using the new Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge. My Cricut hummed and chirped all weekend while I used the new cartridge!

The card is 5 1/2" square, also cut using Art Philosophy. (I told you - that's all I used this weekend!) The papers are "Mischief."

One last card (for now!) - also cut on (guess what) Art Philosophy. The flower was also from Art Philosophy. This makes the popular paper flowers SO easy to make! This card really demonstrates our fantastic new B&T paper. It has a different pattern on each side and is a light cardstock-weight paper.
