As many of you know, Close to My Heart has just released a brand, new Cricut cartridge:  Artbooking!!! It’s nothing short of fantastic!!!  Oh the things you will be creating with this cartridge – we don’t even know where to begin!  So, we decided to show you some of the creations WE have made using this amazing, versatile cartridge  It’s not just for scrapbookers you know.  There are 700 images with a ton of coordinating stamps.  If you don’t already have a Consultant that you are currently working with, please contact me or one of the Consultants in our hop with any questions you have!  In this hop, you will see projects featuring this versatile cartridge from many talented crafty ladies!  Enjoy our blog hop!  If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Lucy’s blog – Love 2 Create.   If you came from Jennifer~ 4 Hearts Scrapbooking then you are in the right place!

This one is for all the cardmakers out there!  As odd as it may seem, I have used this cartridge for cards more than anything.  It is so easy (with the use of Cricut Craft Room) to use one of the “photo mats” or “pages” and adjust them to the size of your card.  Here I made this super quick and easy Christmas card.  It’s beautiful, yet it only took me minutes to make!
