New Cricut Artbooking Collection cartridge- shop at

This is the biggest news right now:  Close to My Heart has a new Cricut cartridge called Artbooking!  It comes in a standard Cricut Collection bundle (just like our other cartridges) so you get 3 coordinationg dimensional element sheets and 3 coordinating D-size stamp sets along with the cartridge for the same great price of only $99.00.  This collection has so much to offer!  There is nothing like this out on the current market!  It has pre-designed mini albums as well as pre-designed scrapbook pages — just set your size and cut and everything will be proportioned!  Thanks to Close to My Heart for making things faster, simplier, and easier!  I love this cartridge and I’m sure you will too!  You can order it direct from my website or contact me to learn how you can get it for half-price along with free product.  This is really already a great price but I want you to get the best deal possible!  I will be doing a series of scrapbook layouts created with Artbooking so keep checking back for more ideas because you will be seeing lots of artwork the next few months featuring this cartridge!

Necklace Kit by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: Fabric Necklace Kit (includes everything you need except a pair of scissors!)

I just love all the Workshop on the Go Kits and now Close to My Heart has added a line of wearable art called Base & Bling which includes this Necklace Kit.  The kit includes:
1 – Sheet of Outdoor Denim/Twilight Dots fabric (from Sarita Textiles)
1 – Base & Bling Necklace
10 – Base & Bling Adhesive Dots; (4 sizes)
5 – Base & Bling Adhesive Strips
1 – Pack of selected Base & Bling Teal & Black Jewels
3 – Base & Bling Floral Accents (1 each of 3 sizes)
1 – Base & Bling Word Accent

You will have extras, including lots of extra fabric.  It is a great kit at an affordable price.

In addition to this Necklace Kit, there are many other wearable options, including Hair Clips, a Cuff, and a Headband, as well as accessories to go with them.  But don’t limit yourself to the obvious.  There are many other uses for these items besides jewelry.  I plan to make napkin rings with the Rings.  You can add use velcro (like the Hook & Loop Dots) when you create your accessories so they can be interchangeable!  And you can use all the accessories as scrapbooking embellishments.  Let your creativity soar!

Please come back and visit my blog again as I will be sharing many new product projects throughout the next couple months, including an entire series on the new Cricut Artbooking Collection!
