Cricut Maker Machine

It's the new fiscal year at Close To My Heart and that means I have a  TON of new product and information to share. Not to mention new projects! Because there is so much information, I am going to share some info today, then provide more details throughout the week. Otherwise your heads might explode. ... I know this because mine almost did!  Ha ha.

First, the worst kept secret in crafting, YES, there is a new CTMH Cricut Cartridge: YOU ARE HERE.  This cartridge has a lot of travel and family images, the potential of I am only beginning to tap.  At first I saw this as simply travel, and I did gross injustice to the cartridge.  Of the 13 projects I have made with this cartridge, only a couple are travel related!

The photo above contains a tiny sample of the 320+ images on the cartridge. Do not get caught up in the idea that this cartridge is only for the world traveler.  It is not.

To help you better understand what I mean when I say that this cartridge is about more than travel, I thought I would share this birthday card I made using only a card form and cuts from the YOU ARE HERE cartridge. I used the hot air balloon and the scalloped half circle happy birthday sentiment on this center step card.

I used CTMH cardstock and sequins. See?  It is about more than travel! The cartridge does cover travel, but it also cover life...

Guess what?  There is SO MUCH more than just the new Cricut cartridge going on at Close To My Heart. There are new stamps, new Essential paper collections, new ink colors, and our new COLOR OF THE YEAR - Bashful. I ADORE this color!!

One of the exciting new features is that our entire line of solid cardstock in now two toned.  What that means is, Bashful, like all other colors, is a bit darker on one side and lighter on the other.  It is like getting two colors for the price of one.

Another NEW is our new line of Basics.  I love the addition of the basic colors, and I love the new basics Paper collection.

Our paper collections are wonderful for crafting in that every color we carry comes in one of our sets, Basic Essentials, Whimsy Essentials, Adventure Essentials, and Enchantment Essentials.  Each set is available in printed cardstock and solids.  So, for the birthday card above, I used printed essential paper for the background (a subtle print) and solid cardstock from the same family for the other cuts.

When you purchase the Whimsy Essential printed cardstock, you might want to also add the Whimsy solid cardstock pack, so that all of your projects have perfectly coordinated colors.

The image below shows you our colors and how they come in printed cardstock, solid cardstock, ink pads, ink refills, and mini ink pigments.

On Wednesday I will share more about our colors and the Essential cardstock packs.

On Thursday I will tell you about our new thin cuts.

On Friday I will share the stamp and money saving information.

And somewhere in there I will share more new projects.
