Art Philosophy Collection and Artwork

I’m sure you are all excited about the new book and products that I will be sharing beginning on February 1st.  I wanted to take this time beforehand to explain the three amazing Cricut Collections that we have and the differences between them.  How they are the same: All of the Close to My Heart Cricut Collections include a cartridge (with 700 images), 3 coordinating D-size stamp sets, and 3 sheets of coordinating Dimensional Elements.  How they are different: Art Philosophy has lots of basics and is a good choice for everyone.  Artiste has a lot of 3D items.  Artbooking focuses on layouts and mini albums.

Cricut-ArtPhiloBundle

The Art Philosophy Cricut Collection includes:

  • 1 – Cartridge (700 images; font, basic shapes, and 3-D items)
  • 3 – My Acrylix D-size Stamp Sets
  • 3 – 12″ x 9″ Dimensional Elements in coordinating shapes

If you own a Cricut machine this Collection is a must-have!  Check out some of the artwork below.
