Cricut Artiste

Hello, Hi, How are you? So... I know I said, I was going to be posting everyday.. But, I kinda fell into my craft room and could not get out ;-) Or something like that.. Unfortunately, it was not to be crafty :-( As I posted earlier, we recently moved... Life has been so crazy, that I have hardly touched my craftroom except to unpack and put things away in NO REAL order.... So, I have kinda grounded myself to my room to try and get things in order.. I am determined to have it ready for crafty time this weekend.. I have so many new Close To My Heart crafty goodies to play with...

So, with that said.... My GOAL is to start playing the new Cricut Artiste Collection this weekend.... And to get you excited about the upcoming release, I am sharing the new handbook from this wonderful collection.

Fall/Winter Sneak Peak and Who Does NOT love Convention???

   Yes, once again, I have been absent. We have had an extremely cray first half of the year.... My oldest, Jacob is doing great.. Still has a few 'dizzy' spells.. But, has been all cleared from the concussion. We bought a house and while moving at the same time.. Celebrated my oldest, Jacob, graduating from High School... I am OK though, seeing as how he will be staying home doing his first two years of college here locally.

   Sooooo... I just got back from Dallas, TX.. Where CTMH held their National Convention. And, YES!!!! There are WONDERFUL things coming our way, beginning August 1st. From the NEW CTMH Cricut Cartidge, Artiste.. to alcohol markers, pigment inks and SO MUCH MORE!!!!! Close To My Heart has out done themselves with this new catalog. If you would like a copy of the new catalog or have any questions, please contact me right away. I would LOVE to help you with your crafty needs.

   Now, On to the 'Sneak Peak'.. First our beautiful new Catalog that goes live August 1st.
Within these pages you are going to find new alcohol markers, pigment inks, 62 NEW Stamp Sets, 10 to coordinate with the Cricut Art Philosphy cartidge and 15 to accompany the new Cricut Artiste Collection, New bulk ribbon, additions to our already wonderful My Creations Line... To include a wonderful Craft Cubby, Star, Bracket Frame and so MUCH MORE!!!!  

Please, visit back everyday, as I will be posting sneaks of new items everyday until August 1st.

Today's SNEAK is of the WONDERFUL NEW Cricut Artiste Collection. I will be taking pre-orders for this collection that will be submitted on August 1st. You really do not want to hold off too long. When our Art Philosophy Collection launched last year, Close To My Heart went through an ENTIRE years worth of stock in just 3 WEEKS. Now, we do not want to be one of those left waiting for a restocking, now DO WE?

same as last year, The Cricut Artiste Collection is just $99 and comes with THREE exclusive coordinating stamp sets, and three coordinating 12x9  Dimensional Elements Sheets (Awards, Quotes, Album Pages). This is a $125 value. Anyone who places a preorder with me before August 1st, will receive a monogram stamp set of their choice from me. Please, contact me for details.

Now, onto some Convention excitement..... I had a GREAT time seeing old friends, meeting new ones and having a GREAT time with wonderful people.... I hope you enjoy some of the following...
I would be the one in Black, and my friend, Pam, is holding one of the cupcakes I made.. I am holding the last of 8 cupcakes I made for my room mates and a few very good friends...
SEVEN of the 8 that I made.. I kept the last one for myself... :-)
Having some good crafting/scrapping time at the end of convention.
Uh, oh.. I wonder what this would be.... Hmmmm.. Could be a sneak of some sort :-) you will have to stay tuned for details to come ....

   I hope you have enjoyed your little visit to my page.. I will be making updates everyday, with announcements, specials, and more SNEAKS as to what is to come.....

Oh.. Did I announce next year's location for Convention? No??? Well, hold onto to your crafty pants.. But, we will be in Orlando next year!!!! That's right... Disney World look out.. CTMH is coming BACK to town... You know you can be part of the Magic, fun and excitement too.... Ask me about details on how to join my team.... You will not regret being part of an amazing and GIVING company.. Not to mention, discounts on your FAVORITE crafting products.....

  Until Tomorrow...... Hope you have a crafty day....
